FP stands for Focus Points is a stat and is used to cast magic and perform Skills in Dark Souls 3. It is the blue bar and stat on the player character's HUD and stat screen respectively. FP is not self regenerating so, in order to refill some of the FP bar, the player must consume an Ashen Estus Flask. FP can only be increased by investing points into Attunement via Fire Keeper.


Items That Regenerate FP


Items That Reduce FP Consumption



  • The maximum amount of Focus Points is 450 at 99 Attunement.
  • The soft cap for FP is at 35 Attunement.
  • Patched with regulation 1.08: You can still perform Weapon Arts, even though you have very little FP left. Does not apply to magic
  • Patched with regulation 1.08: Weapon Arts can still be performed with no FP, albeit significantly weaker


  • FP is commonly refered to as Fancy Points by the community or "Fig Pops"

      The fight that spell casters have is not actually fighting enemies, but figuring out how many Estus and Ashen to allot.

        Why isn't there even a link to the Attunement page here? Also worth mentioning the rings that reduce costs for magic/wa.

          Call me old fashioned but I just say the blue bar is my remaining Fart Power. The blue soy milk is how you get it back.

            Magic in Dark Souls 3 sucks a**, very limited usage and not much damage. Out of 103+ something spells, I think only 20 of them are useful, and rest of them are trash. They should've used ember like magic so we could summon characters without losing our embers, and also there is limited amount of ember in the game which makes it more frustrating. Oh Lord, this game has too much faults I could go on and on, the camera angle, the dodging technique, and physical defense are all*****.

              Ashen Estus sucks04 Jul 2016 15:59  

              The way Ashen Estus Flasks work is stupid. Shouldn't they be separate from regular Estus instead of sacrificing your precious Estus Flasks. I feel that you should be able to find Ashen Estus Shards scattered throughout the world (albeit a lot less compared to Estus Shards) in order to upgrade up to a maximum of 5 Ashen Estus Flasks. The only person who wouldn't benefit is a pure Mage who needs all the FP they can get and alloting Estus wouldn't be possible. Unfortunately this is the ideally perfect scenario and probably won't happen, hopefully we get some FP restoring and increasing items in the DLC.

                Attunement Slots17 Jun 2016 20:26  

                Since the page for them doesn't seem to have anything on it, I'll ask my questions here; how do I get more slots? I have about 30 attunement, and only have 4 (5 including the deep ring) Is this the max amount?

                    It appears as if you can use some Weapon Arts without the necessary FP, but what does come out will usually lose its unique effect. For example, the roaring buff without FP doesn't seem to apply the bonus damage at all (only the initial stagger and an inferior version of the modified R2 on clubs), Quickstep still quick steps but looks to have fewer iframes, Perseverance (instant infinite poise for a moment, found on caesti and maces) loses the damage resistance and might even make you take MORE damage than if you hadn't used the ability, maybe counter damage. Spells just plain don't work without FP, though, and the catalyst buffs mostly seem to just stick you in a long animation as punishment for trying, like when trying to chug empty Estus.

                      Bug or Focus points actually obsolete?13 Apr 2016 17:38  

                      I noticed when my Focus Points are empty , I can still perfom weapon arts like buffing with Axe , stepping with Dagger and Attacking with greatsword etc. It only uses stamina. So I guess Focus Point are obsolete? Or is this supposed to be like this and the is a negative side when performing weapon arts with FP?

                        FP not regenerating overtime.12 Apr 2016 15:01  

                        I think it should go up slowly overtime, and not make us use an ashen estus flask to refill it.
