A Rat Tail is a miscellaneous item in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A severed rat's tail. Demonstrate fidelity by offering it to the Rat King, and strengthen the bond with your covenant.
The Rat King is proud and merciful, as any king true to his stature should be. The Rat King looks favorably upon those who follow the path of right, even disgraceful humans.


Rat Tails are obtained by successfully killing any human player when summoned to defend the Rat King covenant's territory. A single Rat Tail is obtained after defeating the Royal Rat Vanguard in the Grave of Saints or the Royal Rat Authority in the Doors of Pharros.

Can also be farmed from the rats in the Grave of Saints and Doors of Pharros at an unknown drop rate.


Rat Tails are used to level up in the Rat King covenant.
