      400 item find, 40 tries got none. Took turns killing the 2 story teller corvians in road of sacrifices. Pretty sure it is a bug, as I farmed this***** before on my other characters and I'd say I got 1 every 10 or 15 kills or so.

        Hollow Gems can be found curse-inflicting mobs in the Ringed City, the ones that have crystals growing from their bodies or something. Not sure if the regular lightning-throwing variants drop them, but I'm 100% sure that the cursed pygmies or whatever drop them.

            There seem to be some dredgling mobs early in The Ringed City (as in the area rather than the expansion as a whole) that drop hollow gems. I got two going through the area, I'm not sure on any of the specifics, I'd have to go through the area again to pinpoint exactly which mobs I fought, if someone more dilligent doesn't beat me to it I'll post some details after further investigation.

              After returning to the game i realized my Hollow Lothric Shield is not raising my luck. Do hollow infusions only raise luck when they're on weapons now? Can anyone confirm?

                There is one located in the DLC. Its on a corpse right outside the Ariandel Chapel to the right and behind Sir Vilhelm.

                This can be your second hollow gem even before reaching Lothric Castle or so you don't have to farm one from the storytellers.

                Just rush past all the enemies til you reach the second bonfire and then you need only to cross the bridge and pick it up.

                  For those who care about the higher stats---

                  99 Hollowing

                  At 99 STR, 99 DEX, 99 Luck: only a few weapons have a significant AR increase using a HOLLOW gem than using a REFINED (I'm talking 1-10 AR difference). One that surprised me was the Greatsword. It went from 716 to 765. The infusible Katanas, Flamberge, and spears all increase 20-30 AR, but I really couldn't find anything else that increased much or at all. The Corvian Great Scythe goes up 15 AR. Bleed damage goes up a bit, but not really by much. I'd spend points elsewhere and use the Rouge. Just saying.

                    Conflicting information between this and the page with the Luck Stat. Luck Stat page states that at 99 hollow you get +10 luck from holding a Hollow weapon. Here it states that a Hollow weapon only gives up to +5. Test to see which it actually is?

                    • 27 Oct 2016 17:10  

                      So I have to have both hollow infused weapons in my hands in order to get +10 luck or can I have one on my back and two-hand the other one and still get +10 on luck?

                          40 luck + crystal sage rapier + rusted coin + mimic hat + gold serpent ring to get 390 item(my current set +1or2 gold rings is more optimal)<br/>at the half way fortress bonfire kill the staff wielding corvian<br/>Averaging 1 gem per 20~30 minute <br/>got over 10 gems by doing this not that hard to but the drop rate is so bad that you could easily have trouble even getting 1 gem my time average is because one lucky time i got 3 in 10 minutes so don't get salty if you don't get one as fast as you would like
