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.

      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.

              Missing This on your Grand Archives map28 Aug 2016 02:02  

              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.

                      His corpse isn't appearing in the Grand Archive27 Apr 2016 03:43  

                      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.
