Item Discovery is a stat in Dark Souls III that increases the player character's chance at receiving an item, armor, or weapon drop from an enemy.

Item Discovery works by comparing the player's value of Item Discovery against the enemies chance to drop items. As an example, if a player has an Item Discovery of 100, and a Pale Tongue has a 1% drop rate, the players drop rate will be equal to 1%. If the Item Discovery is increased to 400 then the drop rate will increase to 4%

Therefore, maximizing Item Discovery is suggested during farming otherwise drop rates will drop quite far in between one another making a farming session exhausting.

A recommended farming strategy takes place at the end of a play through (before heading into a NG+). The player can respec his or her character to reflect 100 Luck followed by equipping the Crystal Sage's Rapier (note the dex/str requirement), while wearing the Symbol of Avarice and the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring. Following this guideline should bring a player to 350+ Item Discovery. Additionally, a player can consume a Rusted Coin to increase Item Discovery by 50 or a Rusted Gold Coin to increase Item Discovery by 100.

Unbreakable Patches will sell Rusted Coins for 200 souls. If Patches is dead, the Shrine Handmaid will sell the Rusted Coins for 50 souls if she is given Patches' Ashes.
