Sublime Bone Dust Locations Guide

Burning Sublime Bone Dust at the bonfire increases the healing power of your Estus Flask. The Estus Flask can be upgraded to a max of +5.

Sublime Bone Dust #1 – Heide’s Tower of Flame / No Man’s Wharf

  • On the stone brick path to No Man’s Wharf, take the stairs down and turn left in the lower corridor before reaching the elevator. There’s a large guardian protecting an alcove with the treasure chest.

Sublime Bone Dust #2 – Shaded Woods

  • Start at the “Undead Lockaway” bonfire and cross the bridge to the field guarded by quick bandits. There’s a cliff ledge to the left where you can get a view of a hut. This structure’s front door is locked, but you’ll find a hole in the roof used to access the interior. Open the chest inside to grab the second Sublime Bone Dust item.

Sublime Bone Dust #3 – Huntsman’s Copse

  • Warping to the “Shaded Ruins” bonfire, turn left and step out the open window with a view of a petrified figure in the distance. Enter the structure to the left below, and clear out the enemy guarding a closed chest containing another dust piece.

Sublime Bone Dust #4 – Majula / The Gutter

  • Before reaching the Gutter proper, you’ll need to drop down the massive hole in the center of Majula. Eventually you’ll reach a wooden bridge over a circular chamber filled with explosive hollows. Drop down, and head down the path that leads to a dead end — it’s opposite the way to the Gutter. Defeat the knight and claim your reward in the chest.

Sublime Bone Dust #5 – Drangleic Castle

  • In the Drangleic Castle entrance hall with the curved stairs, enter a passage in the back left corner (first floor) that leads to a hallway with a closed door on the left. Open it to discover a treasure chest containing the final Bone Dust item.
