- The starting number of uses you recover from any normal Bonfire is 5.
- Use"Kindle" at a Bonfire, and spend one Humanity point, to increase the amount to 10 for that particular fire.
- The Bonfires with a Fire Keeper present are kindled by default, providing 10 flasks.
- After acquiring the Rite of Kindling the bonfires can be kindled to 15 and then to 20 Estus uses.
- Resting will always provide you with the maximum amount of Estus for that Bonfire.
- Drinking Estus 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 grant you a bonus Estus use.
