Mendicant's Staff is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A staff with a small bowl attached to the tip, similar to a mendicant's crook. Absorb additional souls from fallen foes.

The staff's history is unclear. It may be a relic of an ancient serpent's greed, or a ritual artifact used to summon souls.

Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Trade it to Snuggly the crow to obtain the Sunlight Shield.
  • Increases souls gained by 20%. Stacks with the Covetous silver serpent ring (10%), Shield of want (20%), and Symbol of avarice (50%). The total increase in souls gained by equipping all of these items is 237.60%.  
  • The staff must be held for the souls to count, this is proven by silver serpent icon in the status bar.
  • Rusted Coins and full Item Discovery gear are recommended if trying to obtain this Staff, as it is very rare. The nearest Man-Serpent Summoner to a bonfire is at the Great Belfry.
  • The word 'mendicant' originally referred to one who belonged to one of the religious orders that originally relied solely on alms for their upkeep; those who are given to begging; a beggar can be said to be a member of a mendicant order. Given that Man-Serpent Summoners rely as heavily as they do on their summons to absorb and inflict damage for them, this might explain the name chosen for the staff that they carry.
  • At 60 INT it has a spellbuff of 208.

      Personally, I only had the gold serpent ring and the rapier when I tried to farm this, and after 10-12 tries I got bored and went away, then some minutes later I went back and it dropped on the first try. Maybe it's a coincidence, maybe not, who knows? Good luck, everyone.

            Was trying to farm this, to no avail, but I had only the Gold Covetous Ring +3. So I went to farm Symbol of Avarice near Yhorm. Took a while, but then both Mimics dropped the Symbol of Avarice simultaneously. I then went back to farm Mendicant's Staff, crack a coin, and I find 2 in a row! I push my luck a bit, get a few runs with nothing, and as one of my coin's effect dissipates, I end up with 3 more in a row... Who said this was difficult to get? :P Or the RNG is not as random as it pretends to be.

                    Apparently if you give the crows the staff for the sunlight shield but die before you can pick up the shield, you can't get it anymore in that playthrough. So that's a cool feature.

                      I had 440 item discovery and I got 2 in about 15 minutes. 40 luck, mimic head, crystal sagebrush rapier, silver and gold serpent ring +2, rusted coin and I one shotted him with sunlight spear. Took around 20 kills for my first and around 10 for the second staff
