Easterner's Ashes Usage



Easterner's Ashes Locations

  • Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, corpse on the roof where the Silver Knight archer enemies are. To reach the corpse with the ashes, you go up the ladder coming from Water Reserve bonfire and up the staircase in front of you. Then stick to the right, drop down to another platform where there will be a Silver Knight archer on the flying buttress in front of you, behind a pillar. Run along the buttress to the pillar, and look down to the right. You should be able to see the platform from here. Move a little further up and then drop down to loot the ashes.
  • If you don't have the Water Reserve bonfire, come from Pontiff Sulyvahn's bonfire and run along the path provided. After the Giant area, go up the set of double stairs into the tower ahead, then follow the directions listed above.



Notes & Trivia

  • Although never explicitly stated, the game strongly hints that these Ashes belong to Shiva of the East, a merchant and captain of the Forest Hunters in Dark Souls I.

      Handmaid: I can. And don't call me "Shirley".

      Couldn't resist.

        Stop it with the shiva jokes. We get it, ok? Can we just move on to the next meme, like for example toothpaste ashes?

          how the hell on evey fckn page with a reference on a shiva releted item (on all souls) people keep writing the same joke again and again and other people keep thumbing up? now I understand that if i was 12 and instead of witing this if I had written "shiva the deseased lol1!11" I would have probabbly collected some likes but who cares to get a like for a really old joke of another guy recycled till nausea?

            Water Reserve Bonfire has the two Sulyvahns beasts down the ladder after the illusory wall in the first building after pontiff Sullivan, with Archdeacon McDonnell covenant in the corner.

              This whole section of the wiki was only meant to confuse people into wasting hours looking around, you can't find the ashes until after you defeat Pontif sunlyvahn, I finally found these ashes and still haven't found a bonfire called the "water reserve" bonfire? What the hell, i was starting to really like this wiki

                Just wanted to let people know on my current playthrough the easterners ashes did not show up, this isnt my first playthrough, I know where they are. I've gone back multiple times and tried walking around the corpse and looting it thinking maybe it was just not showing for some reason, and no luck. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

                  Awesome! I never got to buy shiva's weapons on Dark Souls because I always ended up accidentally kicking him off a cliff.
