Sunlight Maggot Description

"A loathsome parasite that inhabits Lost Izalith. It is completely immobile, yet still lives. When worn on the head, it emanates blinding light, which is why it is known as a Sunlight Maggot."



Where to Find \ Location

  • Obtainable by using the shortcut from Demon Ruins to Lost Izalith (Requires "Chaos Servant +2").
  • Also obtainable through exploration behind the Titanite Demon in Lost Izalith (Does NOT require "Chaos Servant +2").
  • There are total of 9 insects on both sides of the shortcut door, the one with the red eyes will drop it.
  • It can only be received once each play-through, since the ninth bug will not respawn.




  • Cannot be upgraded
  • Emanates light when used as a helmet, very useful for dark places.
  • Can be traded to Snuggly the Crow for the Old Witch's Ring.

      Unbelievably valuable piece of equipment when acquire before attempting Tombs. Unlike the skull lantern, the sunlight maggot allows a player to explore Tombs with a constant light regardless of action while playing having both hands free to equip a shield and weapon.. now how cool is that?
