Homeward Bone is a Consumable in Dark Souls 3.

Homeward Bone


Bone fragment reduced to white ash.
Return to last bonfire used for resting, or to the shrine bonfire.

Bonfires are sustained by bones of the Undead.
In rare cases, their previous owner's strong urge to seek bonfires enchant their bones with a homeward instinct.


Homeward Bone Usage

  • Use to teleport the player to Firelink Shrine or to the last bonfire the player rested at.
  • Drop at the crow nest for the Iron Bracelets and "Call Over" Gesture.



Homeward Bone Locations

  • Same effect as the Homeward miracle and the Coiled Sword Fragment.
  • The Darksign also has the same effect, but at the additional cost of all your current souls.
  • If you light a bonfire without resting then use the bone, it teleports you to the lit bonfire

      anyone else dislike just how readily available these are? Completely removes the tension of exploration that early DS1 captured. It also significantly cheapens the getting of the coiled sword fragment

        Newest version, march 2018: I homeward-boned out of the Yorm fight after getting the sword and did not lose embered state.

        • Please edit the post to reflect the fact that:
          1) It doesn't remove ember when used in boss arena
          2) Lighting a bonfire without resting at it will still register it as "bonfire last rested at"

            You get Iron Bracelets and "Call Over" Gesture by trading it with the crow. Just an fyi for people who came to this page looking for that info.

              For some reason, my homeward bones and coiled sword fragment are greyed out and i'm unable to use them. I'm not in a boss fight or anything, it just wont let me use them at all. How do i fix this?

                Using the homeward bone has the same effect on the area as resting at the Bonfire you warp to. If you've missed a fork in the road that you wanted to take and are hoping to go back around from the last bonfire you rested at then be aware that using the Bone will reset the area's monsters.
