Gravestones are a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls II.


Gravestones are used to temporarily resurrect certain dead characters at the cost of souls. The Gravestone will usually be found where the character died after a set amount of in-game time.

When resurrected, the character appears as a ghost, similar in appearance to Chancellor Wellager. The character remains alive until the player leaves the area.

Resurrected characters will only provide the services they would give at the point of their death. For example, buying Maughlin's wares after his death won't upgrade his stock.

Dead characters that also act as phantoms will not be summonable, even if they are resurrected. If a character, whose questline involves summoning them, dies when they are not a Phantom, the player must wait until NG+ before they can try completing the questline again.
