Fire Gem is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.
Fire Gem Usage
- Infuses a Weapon with Fire damage, but removes the stat scaling.
Fire Gem Locations
- Can begin the game with one if you choose it as a Burial Gift
- Drops from the Fire Demon that Siegward of Catarina helps to defeat in Undead Settlement
- Rare Drop from the Smoldering Rotten Flesh and Ghru Shamans in Smouldering Lake
- Rare drop from Undead Settlement
- The fire damage portion of weapons can be further increased by wearing the Fire Clutch Ring.
- Fire also has an additional stun, stagger or knockdown effect against most enemies. This is most notable on Lycanthrope Hunters, Pus of Man, Starved Hounds and Corpse-Grubs.
- The Fire Gem, along with Deep Gem, can raise elemental defense for shields.
- The burial gift description states that it is used for upgrading fire weapons when it is actually used only for the initial infusion.

The trivia section is wrong. The burial gift does not state that it will “upgrade fire weapons.”
The description is: “Material used to upgrade *TO* fire weapons.” Indicating that it changes the weapon property.
Reading comprehension is important.
So wait, from what understand from some of the posted comments.. "Chaos Gems" are mainly for players who are dedicated to Intelligence and Faith. Soo, using this gem with low of either stat will actually lower your damage, rather then to NOT use a gem. "Fire Gems" are probably better for Melee characters who do not rely on Intelligence or Faith. Also, gives more Fire damage in comparison to a Chaos Gem weapon with low required scaled stats. This sound about correct?
Dropped from the first worker enemy I killed in undead settlement, lol
"rare drop from undead settlement". Don't recall meeting any enemies that go by that name.
god's gift to sl1 players
I vaguely recall getting a fire gem to drop from one of the first 2 undead settlement workers from the second bonfire.
The workers right beside the cliff underside bonfire drop fire gems; went farming for them thinking it'd be the ones with fire bombs but after a quick retreat to reset after a fall killing the regular worker on the way to the bonfire yeilded the gem.
Where can I get many? Or who can I buy them from?
Got the fire gem from red peasants next to the Cornyx cage.

we didn't start the fire, it's always been burnin' since the world's been turnin'
"rare drop from undead settlement" Can anybody explain to me what that means? I'm sure they mean an enemy found in the undead settlement but who? Or is it just a typo?
There is a fire gem location not listed on this page; from the Crystal Lizard wiki page: "In a passageway before reaching the bridge that leads to High Lord Wolnir. ---> From the Catacombs of Carthus bonfire, take a left on the path the Boulder o' Bones rolls on, and take another left after reaching the bottom of the staircase. Mind the Hound-Rats and Carthus Swordman as you make your way down the hallway, then turn right into the cavernous passageway. The crystal lizard is halfway down this path."
To those that keep saying it, you don’t need a shriveling gem in order to infuse a weapon/shield with another gem, you can do that just by infusing the infused weapon as the new gem overrides the old gem. the shriveling gems Only purpose is to revert your weapon/shield back to normal.
The burial goofy description says "... used to upgrade *to* fire weapons..." Which is accurate. It's confusing for people unfamiliar with the mechanic but it is not incorrect (as this page makes it seem).
A little tip. Dont upgrade your weapon until you infuse the fire gem, then start upgrading the weapon. Lets say you have a weapon the does base 100 damage, then you infuse it. So its might be around 80 physical and 80 fire. Then upgrading it might give you a plus 10 per upgrade. So a plus 10 weapon with fire would have 180 physical and 180 fire.
How it works? my weapon will decrease physical from 166 to 108 but increase fire from 0 to 108 so i will have 216dmg instead of 166? and what about robes? like the fire set from tower.. i see it has rly bad stats.. so it has any power for fire? or just what i see? someone contact me pleeeease i need a lot of anwers Facebook: Martin Maar Please or anwer here
It might be specified that they drop from the Undead Workers that throw fire bombs on the building where you find Cornyx. I've not had them drop from other workers.
best infusion early-game.
Does upgrading a weapon down the standard path and THEN infusing it stack the damage? Or does infusing a Long Sword do the same thing as infusing a Long Sword +3?
Try Fire Black Iron Greatshield +10 for 99.6% Fire damage reduction.
Does the weapon infused with a fire gem look like it's on fire?
the crystal lizard in between catacombs of carts and Wolnir drops a fire gem
What are the best weapons to infuse with fire gems? (Or really any gem that removes scaling but boosts base damage)
It removes scaling... so what? you don't have stats at the start of the game anyways, as a caster you don't want to have str/dex stats for a long long time.You can change item's infusion anytime is no hassle.You'll find many more gems then before.People posting here have not tried this item I suppose. It offers superior damage until upgrade level +4 and stats like dex/str well over 20 points. So it's the best starting gift as early on you should really work on your health bar to have decent life expectancy. It's better than a raw gem until you can buff your weapon with great spells.
Does the fire damage scale off stats like faith/int like pyromancy? I know the fire clutch ring will increase the damage from fire infused weapons, just hoping I can increase it further...
The village workers in Undead Settlement drop Fire Gem.
Is the gem one use only, or do I get to have fire weapons with everything?
id like to start as herald with teh gem, then get a halberd and infuse it with fire. will that be a good thing?
i got it two times from a regular pitchfork enemy in the Undead Settlement. i dont even have high item discovery but i was quite surprised by the first drop and even more as a nother pitchfork mob dropped one
Interesting system that is being put into place here. It seems that int builds are the only ones that actually get magical scaling on any weapons that the want. For Fire/Dark damage that is mixed-magic or faith based, you get no extra scaling. Maybe the fire/dark spell buffs are powerful and cheap, and they expect players to use them more often. Then you still have an advantage when you have that existing flat elemental damage, which makes you better at penetrating defenses. But still, int getting magical scaling weapons and faith not?
Added easy mode.
