Bonfires in Dark Souls 3 are safe points within Locations where players can rest, repair equipment, recover estus and travel to other already discovered bonfires. From a bonfire you select the following menu options:

  • Travel
  • Attune Spell
  • Organize Storage box
  • Burn Undead Bone Shard
  • Begin journey X (X = amount of times played through on character + 1. This will progress you to a new game cycle. Option only available once an ending has been reached).
  • Leave

The bonfire in firelink shrine can be upgraded (marked as bonfire level) using undead bone shards, thus increasing the amount of health regained per Estus. You can give an Estus Shard to Blacksmith Andre to increase the amount of Estus Flasks available.

In addition to bonfire checkpoints, there are rare healing stations along the way called Estus Soup where you can drink from a cauldron to restore your HP and FP gauges.

The Ember icons to the right of the Location names indicate the presence of a Host of Ember.
