Titanite Slab is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Titanite Slab

Titanite slab for weapon reinforcement, said to once belong to the gods. Reinforces weapons to their highest level.

Titanite slabs are smithing materials of the gods, and weapons reinforced with slabs will be admired no less than their previous legendary weapons.


Titanite Slab Usage

  • Reinforces a weapon to its ultimate form:
    • +10 for regular weapons
    • +5 for special weapons


Titanite Slab Locations

  • 2x at Firelink Shrine:
  • 1x at Profaned Capital: received from Siegward of Catarina after releasing him from his cell.
  • 3x at Grand Archives
    • 1x can be found after pulling a lever which shifts one of the bookcases. Hidden behind the bookcase is a chest containing a Slab. The chest is on the floor with the giant wax basin, and the lever is on the floor below the second Crystal Sage spawn.
    • 1x is obtained after killing the three Golden Winged Knights at the very top of Lothric Castle. Start from the Grand Archives bonfire and use the elevator. Head outside towards the Lothric Princes boss area and immediately turn left onto a spiraling staircase. Make your way to the dome shaped roof to find the knights. 
    • 1x found after activate the elevator outside the Lothric Princes boss fight. Get the elevator to the lower floor, near the Dragonslayer Armour boss fight. Trigger the elevator to go up, and jump out immediately - a different elevator platform will rise in its place. Ride this platform down to find the Titanite Slab in a small niche. Video Location
  • 2x at Archdragon Peak
    • 1x next to Havel Knight.
    • 1x can be found after defeating the Nameless King. Walk ahead from the bonfire and loot the nearest corpse.
  • 3x at Painted World of Ariandel
    • 1x near the Depths of the Painting bonfire. Head left past the Giant Crabs and past several Tree Women, until you come to an icy enclosed area with a Smoldering Tree Woman guarding the Snap Freeze spell. After defeating her, head back and you will notice that a ladder has appeard on your left hand side. Climb the ladder, and then climb another ladder to find a body with a Titanite Slab on it. (Video Location)
    • 1x received after defeating Sister Friede's second phase. Note that she also has a third phase, which will start shortly after receiving the Slab.
    • 1x in the Corvian Settlement. Received by speaking to the Corvian Crow NPC after defeating Sister Friede. He will have moved from his previous spot, now standing outside the house, near the ladder leading down to the gulch. 


  • The maximum amount of Titanite Slabs the player can get in a single New Game cycle is 8 in the base game, and 3 more in the Ashes of Arianderl DLC, for the total of 11.
  • It's worth checking the Farming page if you want to upgrade a lot of weapons before your NG+, to make max souls.



The runes etched on the Titanite Slab have a possible translation, explained in this article. The translation is vague and uncertain, and it is as follows:

Line 1:
The meek sought God/the divine in the trees (archtrees). Yggdrasil, the tree of life (still archtrees) bestowed the gifts of plenty, joy and health.

Line 2:
They remained and hardship set in. They found a spark (Lord Souls in the first flame) which turned into a Sun, driving away the cold/ice.  Terrible trouble came (conflict with dragons).  The Sun (Gwyn and his allies/army) ended this conflict.

Line 3:
This age (gods in Anor Londo) continued and began an era of wealth and plenty. Man will (or has begun to) ascend.  Cold/ice will return.

      So. First play-through of the game, I got half of the 8 slabs available to me, and spent one on upgrading my weapon. I go into NG+, and head over to the dancer boss room. I am killing the knights around the boss room, and i go to the one to the left of the dancer boss room, the one with the red eyes. When I killed him, he dropped me a slab. I don't know if it is a NG+ thing, or if it is just really, really, really rare, as no one else has reported something like this. Anyone have an explanation for this?

        So much Slammin' to do and so few slabs. My Giant Wood requires it to finish.

        But how bout dat FUGS? Plus a knight ring and knight slayer ring.. it's disgusting.

          The page states you need 10 slabs for a regular weapon and 5 for a special weapon, but I just upgraded my washing pole to 10 for 1 slab. Any other weapons like this?

            You have to add that in Ashes of Ariandel there are 3 slabs that can be obtained:
            -The first one after killing Sister Friede in her second phase(while helped by Father Ariandel)
            -The second one after killing the living tree next to the frost spellin the area before the Champion's guardian bossfight
            -The Third one after finishing the dlc, simply speak to the "good" corvian in the Corvian Settlement( he'll be on his balcony so you have to get on topo of the building and then go left to find him)

              There are two slabs obtainable in the DLC area Painting of Ariandel. People are saying there are three, but I've only seen two. Will need to crosscheck with someone else, though.

                There is a titanite slab below the rope bridge In DLC. Getting there requires going down the tree roots all the way donw to the frozen lake. There is a ladder going up past the two giant crabs. Slab is up there.

                  Not sure if this is a bug but i was able to purchase another slab from the shrine handmaid before going over to ng+ (i had just killed all npcs and giving her their ashes) not sure if that is the correlating factor here though.

                    Pretty sure you can only trade the sword coil once per character and not once per play trough, Just tried trade in it on ng+ and the crow won't accept it.

                      So I killed the 3 golden winged knights for the second time and I obtained one in the same NG. It's my 7th one without doing Siegward quest nor traiding with the crows.

                        OK... Now you need a good friend to do this!<br/><br/>Get all the slabs listed above, back up your save file, upgrade weapons to +10 or +5 then give those weapons to your friend via summoning. Copy your back up save file and viola! Now you have 8 slabs and 8 +10/+5 weapons.<br/><br/>Rinse and repeat.<br/><br/>This trick also works for boss soul weapons and infusion gems.

                          I appreciate how they made more available per NG, as opposed to Bloodborne's two (plus the annoying to farm ones from the Insight Well)

                          • Shrine Handmaid Availability19 May 2016 19:28  

                            Some players believe that you can buy multiple/infinite Titanite Slabs from the Shrine Handmaid.<br/>In my playthrough, this is false. I am only able to purchase one (1) Titanite Slab per game.
