Lightning Urn is a Projectile in Dark Souls 3.

Lightning Urn

Dragon-hunting tool used by Lothric knights.
Explodes upon contact, inflicting lightning damage.

The knights of Lothric have since tamed dragons, but were once hunters of dragons themselves.

      After running miracle builds, pyromancer builds, infusion builds, and everything else that incorporates some amount of faith, I've concluded that these stupid ass urns are the best offensive miracle in the game.

        Geriat has a story line and depending on when you obtain his ashes wI'll determine how many lightning urn you can purchase from giving his ashes to the hand maiden. You have to complete his story line to get infinite lightning urn buying capabilities. If you don't you can only buy 6.

          I have a low level build without much str/dex investment. Would these be better damage than black firebombs?

            It should be noted that Greirat only sells 6, and the Handmaid sells unlimited after giving her his ashes after his Lothric Castle pillage.

                Where does Greirat have to pillage in order to buy these?24 Jun 2016 06:06  

                I have seen numerous people use these in the Pontiff PvP arena as though they could be bought in unlimited amounts, but as far as I know, Greirat never has these available in unlimited amounts... Anyone know?
