Estus Flask


The Undead treasure these dull green flasks.
Fill with Estus at Bonfire. Fills HP.
The Estus Flasks are linked to the Fire Keepers. The Dark Tales also make reference:

An emerald flask, from the Keeper's soul. She lives to protect the flame, and dies to protect it further

Estus Flask is a Consumable in Dark Souls.


Estus Flask Usage 

  • Reusable item that replenishes health. Gather Est at bonfires for HP recovery in the field.
  • Resting at a bonfire will recover the number of times you can drink from the flask, up to the limit of that particular fire.
    • The starting number of uses you recover from any normal bonfire is 5.
    • Using the "Kindle" command at a fire, and thus spending one Humanity point, will increase the amount to 10 for that particular fire.
    • The Bonfires with a Fire Keeper present is kindled by default, providing 10 flasks.
    • After acquiring the Rite of Kindling the bonfires can be kindled again for a total of 15 uses, and a third time for a maximum amount of 20.
    • Resting while having more charges left in your bottle than a particular fire can provide will not reduce the current amount.
  • Drinking from the flask will also heal summoned co-op players. This does not apply to summoned NPCs.
  • Other online players Kindling their bonfires in the same area can cause an orange "soul" to be absorbed, granting you an extra estus flask.
    • If you have 20 full charges in your bottle already, the number of charges will not increase further.


Estus Flask Upgrade

  • The Estus Flask can be upgraded with a Fire Keeper Soul, up to +7, to replenish more HP with each charge.
  • To upgrade it, give Fire Keeper Souls to one of the three known Fire Keepers: Anastacia, the mute girl below Firelink Shrine, The Fair Lady, who resides in Quelagg's Domain, beyond the boss room, and behind an illusionary wall, and the Darkmoon Knightess, leaning against a wall in the room containing the first bonfire in Anor Londo.

      I hate how slow the Estus use. In the boss fights where I need it, it's just fast enough, after I get up, to sometimes let me heal before getting struck again. The Manus fight in particular really makes this annoyance paramount.
