The Lord of Cinder mode is a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls III.


The Lord of Cinder mode acts in a similar way to how the Humanity mechanic was implemented in previous games. To enter this mode, the player must first obtain and consume an Ember or defeat an area boss.


The player's HP will be increased to 130% of its base value and they will gain the ability to summon other players to their world.


  • The player will automatically enter Lord of Cinder mode upon defeating an area boss.
  • If the player is summoned whilst in Lord of Cinder mode, their maximum HP will be replenished completely to its base value.
