Oswald of Carim

Oswald Of Carim - Dark Souls Remastered

Oswald of Carim is a Character in Dark Souls



Oswald of Carim is a Character in Dark Souls. He is a grim character who deals in sinners and sin. He will appear at the base of the bell-tower, in Undead Parish, after the Gargoyles are defeated and the bell is rung. He also sells Purging Stones, for half the price of what the female Undead Merchant asks, which are used to cure the player's Curse status. He will also teach the "Well! What is it!" gesture, free of charge.




  • Request Absolution costs (500 x current level) total souls. The price paid is for absolution, and not for each sin, so several sins will cost the same as just one.
    • When absolving one's sin, it is possible to undo unintended actions, this applies to breaking some of the covenant pledges and attacking NPCs. Aggravated NPCs will go back to their normal selves, and you can for example rejoin the Forest Hunters. So if a player accidentally hits a key NPC, the act can be reverted for a substantial fee. Note that killed NPCs will stay dead.
    • After committing a sin, the player's name will be added to the Book of the Guilty, which is a hit-list for the Blades of the Darkmoon Covenant. Request Absolution will remove the player's sin, and thus their name from the book, unless the sin is from a player indictment. Sin obtained from player indictments can not be removed through Absolution.
    • Known sins are:
    • Some NPCs can be killed sin-free:
      All hollowed NPCs.

 Abandon Covenant

  • Abandons the player's current covenant free of cost and without committing a sin.
    • As with abandoning your covenant otherwise, your contributions to the covenant will be halved. (confirmed)
