Wolf's Blood Swordgrass is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Wolf's Blood Swordgrass


A leaf signifying duty fulfilled by the Watchdogs of Farron, who stand beside the old wolf to ensure serenity to those at rest. Depicts a swordgrass leaf stained with dried blood.

Long ago, the swordgrass leaf quietly identified members of the Undead Legion. In the rotted forest rest the spirits of warriors past, their acceptance and gratitude toward their guardians is expressed eloquently by the humble leaf.

 

Wolf's Blood Swordgrass Usage

 

 

Wolf's Blood Swordgrass Locations

  • From the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire, go down the ladder and head right. It'll be in a corner near the Estus Soup.
  • Dropped from all Types of Ghru as a rare drop.
  • CAN be obtained when randomly summoned to defend the Farron swamp as a Watchdog of Farron if you successfully defeat the other players.

 

Notes

  • The best place to farm is to kill the three Ghrus on the bridge near the Keep Ruins bonfire. There are several methods proposed by the community to efficiently farm them.
    • Pyromancy: Chaos Fireball can apparently be used to one-shot all three Ghrus. Use Hidden Body to avoid detection.
    • Sorcery: You need to be able to use Crystal Soul Spear to one-shot a Ghru. When farming, position yourself so that you do not aggro them but can still lock on to the two closest Ghrus. Cast CSS once to kill the closest one, which will also kill the farthest one. Cast CSS to the second one, and RUN to get its loot (if any) before the body falls off the bridge. The effect of one Rusted Coin can last 4 "cycles", meaning you kill 12 Ghrus/minute.
    • Some players have reported that melee approach can also be used to quickly kill all three Ghrus.
  • It is HIGHLY recomended to have an item discovery stat of at least 350+. Item Discovery stat can be boosted by the usage of Symbol of Avarice, Gold Serpent Ring, Crystal Sage's Rapier, and Rusted Coins. (note* you do not need to increase your luck stats because it only adds an insignificant amount compared to the other stats you will be compromising.) Note 2: Wielding another Crystal Sage's Rapier will boost item discovery by another 50 points.
  • Invading via Red Eye Orb while being in the covenant does not yield Swordgrass. Instead it gives you Pale Tongues.
  • From 195 times farming by keep ruins bonfire, the statistics seem to be 1.68% chance for the poisonbreathing ghrus to drop a swordgrass and 0.92% for the shieldbearing ghrus. The conclusion is that there's 1.2% chance for a swordgrass for every time you kill the three by the keep ruins bonfire.
  • There seems to be a strange connection between farming for the Swordgrass & being actually summoned when Watchdogs of Farron is equipped. (DareDevilFCB: I've tested this and the more I was trying to farm the item I was being summoned as a Watchdog much more frequently.)

      Page mentions Keep Ruins and Abyss Watchers bonfires but for me the Keep Ruins bonfire worked better because of how much quicker it was to rest and reset the area

        I need that wolf greatshield. Im willing to trade three fully upgraded items for it. Just tell me which three you want. I dont have any covenant items just fyi.

          Would first start farming 30 tongues from the 2 Dark Wraith. As a side effect you will collect your first ~10 swordgrass from the dead Ghrus left and right. Luck for efficient farming should be at least 300+ (Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, Symbol of Avarice, Crystal Sages Rapier, Rusty Coin)

          • Farming tip19 Sep 2016 15:32

            Notes are not accurate - most efficient is to one-shot the 3 Ghru's at keep ruins. Use the invisible body spell so they don't raise their shield as quick and chaos fireball to one shot the suckers. With lingering dragoncrest, you only need use invisible body once every two respawns. Ultra quick.

              FINALLY DID IT AFTER 2HRS YAAAAAASSSSS<br/><br/>little tip-rellocate all your points except hp,str and stamina into luck then go to keep ruins and use a weap to 1 shot the 3 there......also keep your laptop or something besides u :P

                I'm struggling with this one, second playthrough got all items, however trying to get items again as curved sword went missing (gave it to friend claims he didn't get rid). I can't seem to get the sword again no matter how many i put in. Can you only get the weapon once per character? (got item on second playthrough now on 4th)

                  Farming these for about 2 hours so far at Keep Ruins, haven't gotten a single summon during this (265 SL). I wish Aldrich and Watchdogs could still invade if the hosts already killed the boss. Or at least expand the level range for summoning, even if you get scaled down.

                  • Bad system?19 Aug 2016 06:00

                    I don't know about you guys but this is the worst idea for a covenant... They need to make the system more forgiving. I got like 90 hours on one character and I've been summoned just two times. GIVE ME MY GREATSHIELD!!!

                    • Advice18 Jul 2016 23:07

                      I farmed all of mine with 265 ID. 15 luck symbol of avarice and cgsr. <br/>Had ***** luck at bonfire before abyss watchers so switched to the keep ruins bonfire and farmed the 3 on the bridge. Occasionally the one on the right would fall off the bridge after dying. Took me around 4 hours to farm all 30.

                      • here's a bit of help16 Jul 2016 07:28

                        i farmed for an hour and got some wolf grass but then they just stopped dropping so i teleported to firelink (or another area) and teleported back and they started dropping again
