Blessed Gem is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Blessed Gem


A gem of infused titanite. commonly known as a charm kept by saints.

Used in infusion to create blessed weapons.

Special blessed weapons gradually restore HP and heavily damage reanimated foes.

 

Blessed Gem Effect

  • Infuse to create Blessed weapons.
  • Blessed Gem have lower base damage, but grants the infused weapon HP regen, Faith scaling for it's innate physical and/or lightning damage, and 20% bonus damage to reanimated foes.
  • Attacks also prevent reanimated foes from reviving after they've been defeated.
  • Also requires the Sage's Coal in order to start infusing weapons.

 

 

Blessed Gem Locations

  • Dropped by Evangelists
  • 1x Found at Cathedral of the Deep - To reach this, take the shortcut to the left of the bonfire at Cleansing Chapel (When coming in from the front), take the elevator into the room with the crossbowman on your left. Go on the ledge, take the ladder there, and then drop off onto another ledge after killing a scholar. Follow this until you reach the rafters, and then it's on the far right side of the rafters (Video location).
  • Can drop from the Winged Knight in the courtyard near the fountain in High Wall of Lothric.
  • One can be found at the very top of Lothric Castle, dropping in a hole in the area upstairs at the opposing side of the big bridge leading to Lorian and Lothric room.
  • One can be obtained from trading the Moaning Shield to the Crows nest on the roof of the Firelink Shrine.
  • Possible Drop from Corvian Storyteller in Farron Keep and maybe on the Road of Sacrafice too.
  • Possible Drop from Lothric Priest in Lothric Castle and in the Consumed King's Garden.
  • Possible Drop from Ascended Winged Knights on the roof of the Grand Archives, above the shortcut before the bridge leading to the Lorian and Lothric boss room.
  • In the DLC Ashes of Ariandel, one can be located behind the Giant Tower.
  • One can be found in The Ringed City DLC. After being kicked down by Lapp inside the tower, walk down a few steps, and the gem will be on a corpse
  • Has a rare chance to drop from the Hollow Clerics in The Ringed City DLC.

 

 

Notes

  • The regen is 3 HP per tick, and is unaffected by upgrade level. However, the higher the upgrade is, the shorter the tick interval. At +0, it ticks every 4 seconds. Each upgrade level will reduce this tick time by 0.25 seconds. A +10 weapon will regen 3HP every 1.5 seconds.
  • The blessed effect stacks with the Sun Princess Ring, offering another boost to your health regeneration, around double the effect when the weapon is fully upgraded.
  • The bonus damage applies to all skeletons, not just the ones who have to be killed twice.
  • Blessed weapons can not be buffed with resins or magical weapon buffs.
  • It may be a good idea to infuse a parrying tool (such as a buckler or caestus) with a blessed gem, as you're unlikely to use these items for solely defensive purposes in battle. Additionally, the health regen efficiency increases when coupled with defensive skills and spells such as Perseverance or Sacred Oath.

 

 

Trivia

  • This infusion makes a return from Demon's Souls.

      I want to farm this gem now for my lvl18 char: I have 0 gems at the moment and I played until the twin princes alone with +2 weapons max. I am using what sounds promising (most gems per minute) the first entry in this list (can drop) from this winged knight whatever this means - can drop he can not drop for an hour or he drops at the first attempt I am going to record it until I have 2 gems starting with the first attempt - maybe I make no testrun to see how good my build and armor works against this enemy in high wall of lothric maybe i change to an hevay armor build with dark hand I try it first as a dragon with flynns ring.

          Did Wolnir with a Blessed Mace on my Cleric (because why not), worked rather well. And I do enjoy the Regen together with Ethereal Oak Shield. (Read also elsewhere, that Blessed is nice on LKGS, so I might get Blessed on that aswell.)

            They also drop from the Evangelists from the Cliff underside bonfire. After the Fire Demon mini boss fight, climb towards the building loitered with dogs and the caged mobs until you find 2 evangelists.

                I just had a Blessed Gem drop from one of the two Cathedral Evangelists just before Flynn's Ring in the Undead Settlement. The Cathedral Evangelist page mentions this as a possible drop, but the Blessed Gem Page here does not list this at all. Someone may want to update the page to reflect this.

                  I've noticed that many infusable weapons that also have connections to a specific group of enemies do particularly well with gems that reference said groups. (i.e. Lothric Knight weapons doing well with Refined infusions and Carthus weapons doing well with Sharp infusions.) In the case of Winged Knights though their weapons do pretty terrible damage with their associated gem which is the Blessed Gem. This is especially disappointing if you want to do accurate roleplay or even just want it for the sake of being cool and interesting. Blessed infusion is a tragedy in this game and using beyond a very select few weapons and off hand items is a bad idea.

                      i like the way in the description of which enemy drops it says possible , not even a proof , only possible... on a 3 years old game , we can clearly deduce the ones listed as possible don’t drop it ... personally , the only one I got is from 20 hours of farming the winged knight in high wall of lothric , I was farming his halberd to make a beyblade character , and I got a blessed gem after about 12 hours , so , i’m guessing it has a 0.5% drop chance , if you want my advice , search where you have an actual drop like on the top of the cathedral of the deep , also I reccomend using as less as possible blessed weapon since there are few ones to get

                        Running a Sorc mid-game right now (first playthrough) with STR = 10 and FTH = 7: 1. Infusing a simple club with a Blessed Gem makes the Catacombs of Carthus less tiresome. Even those fast bleed inducing ones go down (shattered) when hit and one can just keep pounding on them. Not much damage per strike, of course, but it is cathartic and effective none-the-less. Figured this build/playthrough would never use a Blessed infusion on a primary weapon, so a niche choice like this has worked nicely. 2. It seems that the Blessed infusion on a shield - specifically the Red & White Shield - requires the shield to be wielded to gain the HP regen, not simply in one of the three equipment slots. Beg pardon if that was generally understood.

                          Ah yes. The Blessed Gem. The perfect gem to set into my Simon Belmont character's whip. Beware, Catacombs.

                            Only really useful for parrying weapons. The hp regen is definetely noticeable, but it's unlikely to help in pvp. Getting 300 hp regenerated would take 150 seconds at max reinforcement, and even then that might not be enough to survive another hit.

                              Hp Regen Giant Door Build is nasty. It gets A scaling in faith and only loses 30ish base damage. With faith regen spells and other regen items it can be efficient in turtleing extremely hard

                                This article is incorrect: perseverance does NOT increase tick speed for blessed weapons. Time tested with a +10 blessed caestus.

                                  Sigh. You can start infusing these already after Farron Keep yet there is only a grand total of two guaranteed available for each run in the base game. Quality design.

                                    Other infusions almost always provide more AR (sometimes more than double), and this makes blessed infusion worthless for most situations excluding parry shields. I mean, 2hp/sec is marginal benefit considering you bricked your weapon. However, there are few exceptions, where blessed gem is obviously the best choice (providing you have high faith):
                                    -Lothric Knight Greatsword
                                    -Drakeblood Greatsword
                                    -Dragonslayer's Axe
                                    -etc.
                                    For example, Blessed Lothric Knight Greatsword (24/16/40 str/dex/fth) has 655 AR. At 60 faith it reaches 700. Remember: blessed gem increases >innate< lightning damage the most effectively. DON'T infuse other weapons! S scaling worth nothing if the base damage is halved.

                                      Lothric long sword blessed has a C Dex S faith scaling at +10. I'm not one for trying to get the most OP weapon. So this one works very well. Blessed weapons are definitely slept on due to the meta. Same as hollow builds. Only builds I use lol

                                        Finally, got one Blessed Gem. This is after I killed the Winged Knight at High Wall of Lothric fountain about 30-40 times. I wore the Symbol of Avarice.
