Farron Coal is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.
- Road of Sacrifices: At the Halfway Fortress bonfire where you first meet Anri and Horace go down and drop down from the ledges on the right side, keep going straight along the right wall and enter a doorway in the end. Turn left and you will see a Black Knight guarding a few bodies, the body at the end of the hall holds the coal.
- An alternative route involves going through Farron Keep swamp and going through the locked stone door with the 3 torches. Then head up the hill, take a right when encountering the dual darkwraiths that patrol the road and open up the shortcut to the Farron Perimeter bonfire. Follow the hallway down until you meet a Black Knight, past him further down the corridor is a corpse with the coal on his person.
- The Black Knight is similar to the Lothric Knight in terms of scaled damage output. His armor, however, is vastly superior. Bring a striking weapon, such as a hammer or club, to dispatch him easily. Alternatively, parrying works, just as it does with the Lothric Knights.
- The knight can also be avoided entirely by sneaking past him. Take the outside path on the right hand side and walk past him, then shoot an arrow at him from behind, and he should change location to guard the outside path instead. Drop down and pick up the coal, then go back up the stairs where he was previously at and exit the building.
