Orbeck’s Ashes is an Ash in Dark Souls 3.

Orbeck’s Ashes


Umbral ash of Orbeck of Vinheim. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.

Orbeck was fascinated with sorcery but without means, so offered to serve as an assassin in exchange for acceptance into the Dragon Academy, believing that one day he could reinvent himself as a sorcerer.

 

Orbeck’s Ashes Usage

 

Orbeck’s Ashes Location

  • Obtained from killing Orbeck of Vinheim.
  • Looted from his corpse in the Grand Archives in a chair up the first shortcut elevator inside the Archives, on the large wooden balcony just before the stairs that lead to the roof, next to the shortcut ladder. The player must have purchased all possible spells, including those unlocked from scrolls, from Orbeck.

      Wait, so if i give ashes to yuria, I can’t give them to the handmaid. Please confirm this so I don’t make stupid mistake

        His ashes show the wrong gloves. It appears to be the Sorcerer Gloves, but he always wears the Old Sorcerer Gauntlets.

          Orbeck, how could you leave us...? You gave me two rings, and I thought you would be at Firelink forever like my other teachers, but you really were different... I hope your last breaths were happy as you read in those archives.

            When I gave the ashes to the handmaiden, she remarked they were still warm, as if he had just died, and we just barely missed him ;—;

              I must have screwed this one up, file under "permanently disappeared" from the game. I never interacted with Orbeck, defeated all bosses for NG and not even ashes are there. I have 3 scrolls for him. dayum, don't forget to interact

                I just want to report that the Clandestine Coat was available at the Handmaiden shop BEFORE I even found Orbeck's ashes, let alone gave them to Handmaiden/Yuria. It seems that it became available as soon as I beat the Twin Princes. Thus I believe you do not need the ashes to unlock this coat. For reference, I did end up giving the ashes to Yuria (getting the Morion Blade) and the coat was still available at the Handmaiden.

                  You can buy *some of* Orbeck's spells after defeating the final boss, Twin Princes, and after giving him the final scroll. He will still depart. This page is wrong or outdated.

                      Hey you have to kill a boss first after orbeck leaves before his ashes show up, I was looking at the location but his corpse didn't show up until I defeated twin princes

                        Do you have to kill Prince Lothric for his ashes to spawn in Grand Archives? I bought all of his spells and gave the 4 scrolls to him.

                          Unless you're really dead-set on getting the Morion Blade, do NOT do this. Besides limiting the amount of spells you can get if you've not given him all the scrolls, his death dialogue is the most heartbreaking I've ever heard and I felt like a piece of***** afterwards.

                            to the mentioned previously by me , I have to say that all quest items disappeared, like keys for example. if I aint wrong never purchased them on NG+ and now I have to (the one to the tower for 20K). Have no dlcs so cant give any comment on that matter.

                                  You guys might want to update your maps. About half way through them you're missing half the items available, this one being a good example.

                                        So if I give the ashes to Yuria, can I still turn in scrolls to the Shrine Handmaiden? I think I just *****ed up my character.

                                          Ok so, I did the Yuria questline, and got the point where she was asking me to kill him. Only I didn't do that, made my way to the Grand Archives, got the crystal scroll and gave it to him, where I then purchased all of the spells he had for me. He said he was going to leave, so I refreshed the Firelink Shrine area and he was gone but his ashes aren't appearing where they should be in the Archives, hell not even his body is there. Is the spawning location for his body different or did I somehow not do his questline correctly? I'm confused.

                                            Orbeck ran off rather early in my game cause I never gave him any scrolls. His ashes haven't appeared in the grand archives.
