Pale Tongue is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Pale Tongue

Proof of a red orb invader's victory over a Host of Embers.

Claiming tongues as trophies was originally the practice of an infamous troupe of invaders, who offered them to their speechless goddess.


Pale Tongue Usage

  • Proof of a red orb invader's victory over a Host of Embers.
  • Covenant item for ranking up in the Rosaria's Fingers covenant.



Pale Tongue Locations

  • 1x Found at Undead Settlement: In the area where you fight the Fire Demon with Siegward, on one of the hanging corpses. (Watch the )
  • 1x Found at Cathedral of the Deep: right next to the second chained-Giant, directly in front of the stairs.
  • 1x Found at Cathedral of the Deep: outside on the upper level of the roof, at the end of the walkway by the rafters entrance.
  • Drop from Darkwraith (Rare).
  • One is obtained each time the player invades and defeats the host of a world while either covenantless or as a member of Rosaria's Fingers.



  • Can be used to change character appearance by offering to Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth.
  • Can be used to re-allocate all stats, a maximum of five times per game cycle, by offering to Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth.
  • Show one to Leonhard in Firelink Shrine to get the Lift Chamber Key.
  • One of the best ways to farm Pale Tongues outside of PvP is from the 2 Darkwraiths you come across when first exiting the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire (Choosing to let the Darkwraiths weaken themselves or possibly even die while fighting the many Ghru's in the area will also double as the best way to farm Wolf's Blood Swordgrass)

      Easy way to farm those atm in the new dlc: Use your Red Eye Orb at the "Earthen Peak Ruins" bonfire, after you're summoned just wait a few seconds and watch how the host gets rekt by the lasers, lel.

        These seem to drop in between 3 and 4 times more frequently than proofs of a concord kept.
        So still pretty rare. (I recommend you farm these in pvp while you are still low lvl).

          The drop rates are pretty damn good compared to other covenant items! With 364 item discovery I once got 4 out of 4 DWs to drop it in a row, I know its just luck, but I got 30 tongues before I got 30 swordgrasses, and there are 2 DWs and 9 ghrus, so the drop rate is very good indeed.

            I started from 0 souls and ended up getting 9 of the pale tongue and 50k souls, only equipped crystal sages rapier. I think the drop rate is not too bad considering; comparing to farm the blue sentinels covenant item from sliver knight in anor londo: getting 8 and 700k souls with full item discovery boost ring, armour and weapon.

              What's with people *****ing about the invasions? No more overkills with your dumb metas in 1v1? Get *****in good. I love the gank hunt. Maximise your build and hunt them *****ers. Nothing else like it. Ever since my experience in darkroot forest, I've honed my skills and never looked back. 3(4)v1 for the *****in win. Come at me. <br/>PSN: M2A3N5 <br/>Look for me when your ganking. Praise the *****in skill.

              • Horrible contradiction?08 May 2016 22:47  

                Just got a pale tongue from killing my summoner after being summoned by red sign, while i was in the darkmoon knights. Seems like a horrible contradiction lore wise to get one seeing as how rosaria's fingers are their sworn enemies.

                  I found it fairly pathetic I could get these faster from farming the dark wraiths rather than actually invading players.<br/><br/>Why? oh let's see. Hosts with terrible connections (and the peer to peer multiplayer favors host, meaning even if it looks like you hit, you didn't hit because netcode yay), people cheating with invulnerability cheats, people pulling the plug wasting my time, people running away and summoning phantoms, the inability for other Rosaria members to even help kill the host without me hitting them or them hitting me and the host having access to 2x as many estus. <br/><br/>At least with the mound makers I could just kill phantoms all day.

                    the dark wraiths outside of the Farron keep perimeter have a chance to drop these. if you collect 5 tounges you can respec up to five times per character. you can also change your gender and appearance 5 times through the same npc in the cathedral

                        This could be harkening back to the Old Witch's Covenant from DS1. Apparently Knight Kirk of Thorns has claimed his fair share of tongues.
