Simple Gem is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Simple Gem


A gem of infused titanite, said to be an object of infatuation for victims of stunted development.

Used in infusion to create simple weapons.

Simple weapons inflict magic damage and restore FP very gradually, to help even a simpleton muster some mettle.

 

Simple Gem Usage

  • Infuse into a weapon to make it Simple.
  • Simple weapons have Intelligence scaling, deal magic damage and restore FP while the weapon/shield is out.

 

 

Simple Gem Locations

  • Irithyll Dungeon on a corpse across the bridge, immediately on the left when going down the stairs, next to 3 jailers and some cage spiders.
  • One dropped by crystal lizard above Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire (which is found by taking the one pathway leading opposite to an elevator shortcut before Anor Londo). It's where the fire-casting undead are at.
  • Simple Gems can be farmed from the Jailers in Irithyll Dungeon.

 

 

Notes

  • Requires the Giant's Coal in order to start infusing weapons.
  • FP restoration is not affected by Intelligence, Faith, or Attunement values. 
  • The base regeneration rate for the simple infusion is 1FP/5 seconds, going down 0.217 seconds per upgrade level. At +10 it gives 0.35FP/sec (1FP every 2.85 secs). 0.7 FP/sec if two Simple Infused weapons or shields are equipped.
  • It is possible to stack FP regen by equiping a Simple infused weapon or shield in each hand, however the regen appears to differ between equipment and thus is difficult to record in this manner. (As of now, all weapons and shields have the same FP regeneration rate).
  • As weapon skills do not actually require the full amount of FP to use, Simple infusions are extraordinarily helpful to continue using your weapon skills with maximum effectiveness. For weapons that suffer greatly without any remaining FP, a Simple infused offhand can allow continuous use of weapon skills. Although, keep in mind that weapon arts requiring multiple instances of FP consumption won't fully work, as you won't have enough FP to use the second part of the skill. (Patched as of 1.05/1.08: Skills now require half focus points for use).
  • It may be a good idea to infuse a parrying item (such as the Buckler, Parrying Dagger, or Caestus in the offhand) with the Simple gem, as you are unlikely to use these items to block actual attacks in a PvP scenario. Therefore, you sacrifice a very small amount of damage absorption in exchange for a small FP regen buff.

      the regen scaling down with the level seems to be incorrect, after testing a simple caestus +0 and +10, the difference is twice as fast (form 6 seconds to 3 seconds)

        There was a ring in Demon's Souls called the fragrant ring that had the same effect. There was also a the phosphorescent pole weapon that always regenerated mana and could be upgraded. This gem is like a very weak version of those and wish FROM would make it stronger or add a ring that offers FP regen.

          FROM, PLEASE BUFF THIS INFUSION AT LEAST UP TO 1 FP/2 SECONDS ON EACH WEAPON!!! THIS ISN'T EVEN USEABLE ON ANY TYPE OF INT BUILD ASIDE FROM SPAMING GREAT FARRON DART! 2 FP/2 SECONDS WOULDN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE BLESSED INFUSION ON FAITH BUILDS SO I DON'T SEE WHY THIS CAN'T HAPPEN! HELL, I'D LIKE THE TICK RATE TO DROP TO 1.5 SECONDS LIKE BLESSED AT +10, BUT ANYTHING WOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS? SOMEONE SET UP A DAMN PETITION OR CONTACT THEM ABOUT THIS PLEASE! IDK HOW TO... : /

            Simple gem infusion? Perfect for katanas.

            Currently running a low quality build mixed with sorcery - yet to finish first completion. 18 STR, 24 DEX, 32 INT

            Simple infusion on Black Blade at +6 gives C rank INT scaling, and unlike Crystal infusion it doesn't completely annihilate physical scaling bonuses :) Solid damage buffs and even damage scaling make it a very stable and reliable option.

            But best of all? Focus regeneration for weapon arts. I find the katana weapon parry to be the fastest responding parry in the game with the biggest window. Great for skewering Black, Silver and Lothric knights. Quick slice keeps opponents off balance with great lunge, high speed and burst damage potential. DIRT CHEAP WITH SIMPLE INFUSION!!!

            Guys, there's a reason Crystal becomes available in Farron Keep, but you have to suffer Irithyl and Anor Londo for Simple!

              "It is possible to stack FP regen by equiping a Simple infused weapon or shield in each hand, however the regen appears to differ between equipment and thus is difficult to record in this manner. "

              As I posted in the forums, this is false / no longer the case (although, I did not test every item, so perhaps clarification is needed). It seems though, every item regens at the same rate of ~ 1 FP per 3 seconds. Dual wielding does not change the regen rate, but equipping two items (even two of the same, e.g. two caestus') will double the regen, i.e. instead of it taking ~18 seconds to regen 6 FP it will take 9 seconds to regen said 6 FP when utilizing two items.

                Two handing vs Off handing vs main hand use09 Sep 2016 17:40  

                They all give the same fp regen tick rate in my test case scenario (+6 caestus)<br/>So is that part of the page that says dual wielding doubles incorrect or is it for +10 only?<br/>

                    <br/>IMO FP regen from simple infusion is too low. 0.35 FP. At the very least it should be double the amount, 0.7 FP/sec.<br/><br/>Therefore, I propose two rings dedicated to regenerating FP, the 1st ring for physical builds and the 2nd for magic builds. The rings provide a minimum of 0.1 FP/sec per stat with 3 caps. If you wear the PHYS FP ring, you gain FP/sec for points in STR & DEX. If you wear the MGK FP ring, you get FP/sec for INT & FTH. Luck also forks out FP regen, and equiping both rings doubles the FP regen from LCK.<br/><br/>1st soft cap: 25 pts = 0.3 FP/sec<br/>2nd sharp cap: 40 pts = 0.4 FP/sec<br/>3rd hard cap: 60 pts = 0.6 FP/sec<br/><br/>So assuming the build 40/25/10/10/50<br/><br/>40 STR = 0.4 FP/sec<br/>25 DEX = 0.3 FP/sec<br/>10 INT = 0.1 FP/sec<br/>10 FTH = 0.1 FP/sec<br/>50 LCK = 0.4 FP/sec<br/><br/>If the PHYS FP ring were worn alone, that would give a total of 1.1 FP/sec. If the MGK FP ring were worn alone, it would give 0.6 FP/sec. When worn together, FP regen from LCK doubles, so it would be 1.7 FP/sec

                              As of the patch 1.05, weapon skills no longer can work with 1 FP. I haven't tested many weapons, but sunlight straight sword buff no longer works, which is an unfortunate loss for this character.
