FP stands for Focus Points and is used to cast magic and perform Skills in Dark Souls 3. It is the blue bar and stat on the player character's HUD and stat screen respectively. FP is not self regenerating so, in order to refill some of the FP bar, the player must consume an Ashen Estus Flask. FP can be increased by investing points into Attunement via Fire Keeper or by equipping certain items.



Items That Regenerate FP




  • Patched with regulation 1.08: You can still perform Weapon Arts, even though you have very little FP left. Does not apply to magic
  • Patched with regulation 1.08: Weapon Arts can still be performed with no FP, albeit significantly weaker


  • FP is commonly refered to as Fancy Points by the community or "Fig Pops"

    • Ashen Estus sucks04 Jul 2016 09:59  

      The way Ashen Estus Flasks work is stupid. Shouldn't they be separate from regular Estus instead of sacrificing your precious Estus Flasks. I feel that you should be able to find Ashen Estus Shards scattered throughout the world (albeit a lot less compared to Estus Shards) in order to upgrade up to a maximum of 5 Ashen Estus Flasks. The only person who wouldn't benefit is a pure Mage who needs all the FP they can get and alloting Estus wouldn't be possible. Unfortunately this is the ideally perfect scenario and probably won't happen, hopefully we get some FP restoring and increasing items in the DLC.

      • Attunement Slots17 Jun 2016 14:26  

        Since the page for them doesn't seem to have anything on it, I'll ask my questions here; how do I get more slots? I have about 30 attunement, and only have 4 (5 including the deep ring) Is this the max amount?

            It appears as if you can use some Weapon Arts without the necessary FP, but what does come out will usually lose its unique effect. For example, the roaring buff without FP doesn't seem to apply the bonus damage at all (only the initial stagger and an inferior version of the modified R2 on clubs), Quickstep still quick steps but looks to have fewer iframes, Perseverance (instant infinite poise for a moment, found on caesti and maces) loses the damage resistance and might even make you take MORE damage than if you hadn't used the ability, maybe counter damage. <br/><br/>Spells just plain don't work without FP, though, and the catalyst buffs mostly seem to just stick you in a long animation as punishment for trying, like when trying to chug empty Estus.

            • Bug or Focus points actually obsolete?13 Apr 2016 11:38  

              I noticed when my Focus Points are empty , I can still perfom weapon arts like buffing with Axe , stepping with Dagger and Attacking with greatsword etc. It only uses stamina. So I guess Focus Point are obsolete? Or is this supposed to be like this and the is a negative side when performing weapon arts with FP?
