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 held in hand.

 

 

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. 
  • According to my testing, the base regeneration is 1FP/5 seconds, going down 0.217 seconds per every upgrade level. At +10 it gives 0.35FP/sec (1FP every 2.85 secs). 0.7 FP/sec if in both hands.

  • 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 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.

      "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 11:40  

        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/>

          This is a new melee focused iteligence build that i found to be quite effective use caestus +10 with simple infusion, darkmoon blade, or crystal magic weapon with moonlight greatsword or greatsword of judgement with 40 40 vig end 20 str 15 dex with 50 int pour watever stat you want your remaining points in this is a heavily weapon focused build so any rings work but darkmoon ring and wood grain and advised

          • Suggestion04 Aug 2016 01:04  

            <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

              just equip a simple infused item in off-hand and use the handmaid's dagger the dagger recovers 1 fp per hit and recovers 2 fp if used left handen (off-hand) i have two of them and use the one i my left hand if i'm in battle as a warrior and i use my simple off-hand item and my right handmaid's dagger if i face af big slow enemy so i can spam my fp regen with the daggers quick right handed moveset

                "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" That is no longer the case as of recent update

                • Patch killed simple10 Jun 2016 00:29  

                  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.

                    Exactly where it says it is in the dungeon. right down the stairs when you cross the bridge coming from!the bonfire and its in the first cell" youll see to the left. bewary of baby dragon<br/>

                        Hey, i'll be posting that here since there isn't much people passing on this page but...<br/>Using an off-hand with this allow you to throw a weapon art every 3 seconds or so, with that single FP you just regained...<br/>Just sayin'... Use your newfound power wisely, it would be a shame if such a strong thing ended up in every players hands...

                        • A flat 1 FP?23 Apr 2016 14:19  

                          With no way to increase it? Like.. Upgrading the weapon doesn't increase the regen rate? *****. And here I thought this might be a good supplement to a mage like the DeS version..

                          • Little thing I do.23 Apr 2016 02:19  

                            I buy a cheap dagger and infuse it with this gem.<br/><br/>When I'm wanting to save on Magic, I put the dagger in my left and let my focus recharge...at a snails pace but better then nothing.<br/><br/>Highly recommend this tactic it for spell casters. It works out but very slow.
