Hollow's Ashes is an Ash in Dark Souls 3.

Hollow's Ashes

Umbral ash of a Hollow who faithfully served a woman, only to become separated from her. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.

It takes but a brief glance at this thing to easily envision Londor, the foreboding land of Hollows.


Hollow's Ashes Usage



Hollow's Ashes Location

  • Found in Untended Graves, on a corpse occupying what would be Yoel of Londor's spot in the dark Firelink Shrine.
    • Spawns if Yoel of Londor is killed or dies before "Drawing out True Strength" five times. This can happen in three ways:
      • By giving the Fire Keeper Soul to the Firelink Shrine Fire Keeper and curing the curse.
      • By defeating the Abyss Watchers without 5 Dark Sigils in your inventory.
      • By killing Yoel without 5 Dark Sigils in your inventory.
    • Also spawns if Yuria's services become unavailable to the player in any way, such as by killing Anri.




  • Shrine Handmaid offers the following new items for sale after turning in ashes: Purging Stone (3,000 souls, unlimited quantity); Posion Throwing Knifes (120 souls, unlimited quantity); Ring of Sacrifice (5,000 souls x3).
  • These ashes will indeed spawn if the player simply misses Yoel, or never recruits him to Firelink Shrine.

      I killed yoel in the fireshrine and never draw level up but the ash in the handmaid sells only few Sorceries without the poison knife or purging stone

        *Sigh* Anyone know if theres some way to get these or Yuria's ashes to show up after completing the hollow ending (summoned yuria and she did not die).

        Really not thrilled about being unable to buy purging/knives till NG+ :((

          I got the ashes after i got my 5 sigils from his corpse. I didnt do anything wrong, im still doing his quest. I havent cured my hollowing once. Yet somehow i got his ashes a long time ago. Weird.

            Does this drop if you never talk to him to send him to the shrine? I'm trying to avoid having a dead body in my last play-through but I do want as many consumable items as possible.

              Yole dissapeared21 Sep 2016 16:55  

              So i started ng++++ killed all bosses i could up until abys watchers including crystal sage, dancer, oceiros and champion gundyr. Got up to farron keep perimiter bonfire, warped to firelink and Yole was gone. So i went to the undead settlement, he wasnt there either. Went to untended graves shrine and found hollow's ashes. Wtf?

              • Can anyone confirm this?31 Aug 2016 20:13  

                "It's possible to get the ashes after progressing Yoel's quest line, however you must cause Yuria to leave Firelink shrine. Curing the Dark Sigil will cause this."Can anyone confirm that killing Yuria or curing the curse will cause the Hollow's Ashes to spawn? This comes from the "Hollow Ashes" page on this wiki, which seriously needs to be deleted, as it's redundant after this one.

                • "Natural Causes"? What did that even mean?31 Aug 2016 20:11  

                  Clarified this article to correctly point to Untended Graves, and added the conditions necessary to get these ashes to spawn.The page previously had taken its content from the wikidot wiki, and kept it's strange wording, saying that these ashes would only spawn if Yoel died of "Natural Causes". Well, since murdering him (before getting 5 Dark Sigils) does INDEED cause the ashes to spawn, I beg to differ.

                    It's not the standard firelink.24 Aug 2016 21:30  

                    It's not in the firelink shrine, its in the DARK firelink shrine. So go to the unintended graves, find the dark shrine and voila.

                      Wiki is straight up wrong.06 Jul 2016 02:42  

                      Killed Yoel, did not get ashes. Completely contrary to "Obtained from Yoel of Londor upon killing him."Thanks

                        How I did it, I didn't even talk to Yoel, went to dark Firelink, the ashes were there, this is just what I did, wiki makers triple check your information

                        • ashes not appears in dark firelink15 Jun 2016 19:24  

                          so I kill the Abyss Watchers, got 5 sigils - Yuria came - then proceed to the Catacombs, reached Dark Firelink, but there was no Hollow's Asheswhere could be the problem?

                            I'm my third playthrough of NG, Yoel died of natural causes and Yuria took his place. These ashes are not appearing In the spot where they are supposed to be.

                                important note25 May 2016 22:52  

                                In my game, Yoel died of natural causes. After that, and before I got to Untended Graves, I angered Yuria by hitting her so that I could be invaded by the Pale Shade to get her set, and then made peace by asking forgiveness at Velka's. Her questline is intact, but the ashes didn't appear.

                                • Sunless Set12 May 2016 16:40  

                                  Finally got these ashes for myself, they do not unlock the Sunless Set for purchase. That set becomes available after Sirris dies. The Purging Stones, Poison Throwing Knives, and Ring of Sacrifice do, however.The Rings of Sacrifice popped up as zero for me though, and I had previously bought all three from Yuria before angering her (removed Dark Sigil), so it might be linked to both hers and Yoel's inventory.I suspect these ashes will only appear if Yoel dies naturally, but after you anger Yuria so she leaves without killing her. Will need to test that later. If that's the case, this would clearly be a way to make Purging Stones available to the player if they forgot to buy one before removing the Dark Sigil. However, this is no longer relevant since curing the Dark Sigil now also clears out your hollowing.
