Greirat's Ashes is an Ash in Dark Souls 3.

Greirat's Ashes


Umbral ash of Greirat of the Undead Settlement. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.

Greirat was a thief who fancied himself a martyr for the poor, which is what drove him to climb the wall.


Greirat's Ashes Usage

Greirat's item variety will alter when he is allowed to scavenge certain areas, and his ashes will reflect this based on the time he is killed. 

Greirat's Ashes Locations

Obtained following Greirat's death either from the player's hand or as a result of his questline.

  • If he dies on the Irythill mission (if not saved by Siegward), his ashes will be in the flooded cave by the long-haired centipede monsters in Irythill of the Boreal Valley just before the kitchen area. (Video)(Video)
  •  If sent out a third time, ashes can be found on a Grand Archives rooftop; between the first and second Gargoyle encounters, look down for a rooftop with a group of Corvian worshippers. Drop down and from there, in one direction is a Hollow Gem and a Titanite Chunk, while in the other is a short jump to Greirat's corpse and a treasure of 3 Titanite Scales.()




  •  If he dies on the Irythill mission, the new items he would have had for sale(uppon success) will be available from the Shrine Handmaid(After giving her his ashes). You will however, be permenantly unable to recieve the items obtained from the Lothric Castle mission.

      I sent greirat out to lothric then went over to where his corpse is normally but his ashes weren't there. Was this a bug? If so please help me figure this out.

        When I first sent Greirat to Lothric Castle, I thought he would come back again as usual. When I was exploring places in the Grand Archives I didn't explore earlier and found his corpse, I got legit sad ;-;

          Just got to his cell (very first encounter) just to find him dead already. Got the cell key next, opened it and got his ashes and the BTSR. Any idea if this is a known bug?

            I couldn't make the jump on the rooftops but using spook let me drop down from the other side. (Without spook it was a fatal drop.)

              I completed all bosses except for the Demon King in smouldering lake and Greirat wouldn't return to firelink nor could I find his ashes in the two locations. Killed Demon King and he returned so I'm guessing that's the trigger!

                I sent him to plunder and skipped through the reading. Not knowing we're to look first I checked both places and his ashes weren't there. He's not in the shrine either. Does anyone know why?

                  I went into the cave and searched all around, and all I found was the excrement covered Ashe. Greirat isn't at fire link either

                      After Greirat dies, and his ashes find their rest in Firelink Shrine, the Shrine Handmaid starts to sell Splintering and Exploding bolts. Well, after you gave her those ashes. The interesting part is: both of those bolts are made by the craftsman Edmond - a figure yet to be uncovered. Was Greirat a pseudo-name of Edmond, a long-forgotten craftsman? Or did Edmond kill Greirat at his last attempt to pillage the place of no return? There is a bit of mystery out there. Fromsoft really loves to tease the public.

                          DO NOT KILL HIM26 May 2016 03:10  

                          Killing Greirat early will not unlock all his wares when turning in his ashes to the handmaiden, it will only unlock his early wares. DO NOT KILL HIM.

                            Ashes, but no Large Arrow20 May 2016 06:44  

                            I was going through my Bow Only run and killed Greirat. I turned in his ashed to the Handmaiden but it did not unlock the Large Arrows for purchase. Anyone know if the game just doesn't unlock them until a certain point in the story? Or are they only unlocked once he returns from pillaging, meaning I just doomed myself and cannot buy large arrows this run?

                              Ashes missing?11 May 2016 00:55  

                              I just reached his dying spot in Lothric Castle and his ashes are not there. I'm pretty sure I did everything right. I completed Siegward's quest and sent Greirat out for the third time, but his ashes aren't there. Did I miss something? (NG+)

                                After giving the Handmaiden his ashes after he died on his 3rd outing, she had 6 embers and unlimited lightning urns, exploding bolts, and splintering bolts, in addition to all of his previous stock.

                                • Does this work?05 May 2016 03:37  

                                  If I buy the Titanite materials before I send him out on his last pillage before he inevitably dies, will it be restocked when I turn his ashes in to the maiden? If not, am I better off not sending him to his death? Because he's my favorite merchant, I really like him as a character.

                                    If you give the shrinemaiden his ashes, you will gain access to all the things Greirat sold before + maybe some more things. If you fail to buy the upgrade materials he sells after irithyll, you can give the maiden his ashes and you'll be able to buy them then.
