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 video at 3h and 20m)
  • 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)

      After having earned the Obscuring Ring once in NG, I attempted to earn a second copy in NG+; however, upon delivering to Rosaria the required 10 Pale Tongues, I did NOT receive a second Obscuring Ring. Is it impossible to earn more than one Obscuring Ring per character? I mean, legitimately--not through trade with other players. Thanks!

        A pain to get these on Xbox, basically the only way to get them is to farm darkwraiths unless you enjoy getting ganked every time you try to invade. The only times I've been in non-gank PvP situations is the few times I've been summoned near the Pontiff bonfire through soapstone and a couple of times I've been invaded myself. I personally wish I'd get invaded a lot more, as it'd give me more chance to get PvP experience outside of getting either ganked or having no hope in dueling someone who already has plenty of PvP experience.

          Does anyone know where these appear in the inventory? I know I have picked up at least two of these and have just now looked up what they're for, but I can't find them in my inventory at all.

            No point of farming these since you are only able to rebirth as many as 5 times unless you want to rank up. Pfff...

              I don't know why people have a problem collecting these. Just invade. Hide and wait for the host/summons to die, if you have no luck with PvP.

                  Easiest way to get these is having a friend use your red sign soap stone (while a finger of rosaria) and killing them for the tongue.

                    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.

                              Horrible contradiction?09 May 2016 04:47  

                              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.
