Purging Stone is a Consumable in Dark Souls 3.

Purging Stone

purging stone

Ash-colored stone encasing a skull.

Reduces undead curse build-up and cures hollowing.

Inhabitants of Londor, the land of Hollows, use this secret treasure to feign normalcy.

Occasionally, a Hollow fools even himself, and turns on his own kind.


Purging Stone Effect

  • Reverses hollowing without curing Dark Sigil.
  • Note that it does not remove the buildup of the Curse status effect, it only resets the hollowing counter to zero. The item description is actually referring to the same effect twice.
  • Purging Stones cannot be used while another player is in your world or you are in theirs.



Purging Stone Locations



  • If the player heals the Dark Sigil after Yoel dies, Yuria will no longer converse with the player, thus making it impossible to buy Purging Stones from her. (Historical note: This used to mean the player would have to remain hollow until finding a purging stone later in the game, but in the 1.03 patch, curing the Dark Sigil from the Firekeeper was amended to also remove hollowing, restoring humanity.)
  • If the player decides not to advance into NG+ after completing Yuria of Londor's quest, Purging Stones will no longer be available for purchase from any NPC.

        Here’s a heads up. NG+ removes all your Dark Signs. So if you’re SL120 with a hollow build or whatnot, don’t decide to cleanse your hollowing, unless you’re ready for “normalcy” or want to be SL121-125 cause you can ONLY hollow with Dark Signs and you Only get them from Yoel and/or from marrying Anri.

          Hmm, i have 10 hollowing and i cant use the stone. I have tried for 2 days in all different situations and "USE" is greyed out at all times.

          • BE CAREFUL ON NG+ So I started ng+ with my hollow/bleed build of 240hrs and hollow weapons+10. I didn't lvl up with Yoel as I was already at 120 soul lvl and wanted to stay there. . So it turns out that although I started with hollowing 99 it seems I didn't have the Dark Sigil, and neglecting to level up through Yoel I didn't didn't gain one. I've nearly completed ng+ and I thought I would slightly alter my appearance so I used a stone. It didn't just reset my hollowing, IT CURED IT! Now I die and die and die but no hollowing!

              Never reversed my hollowing with the fire keeper, went into NG+ and ignored yoel, went like half way through the game and then used one trying to stop curse build up...it completely cured my hollowing and i no longer have a hollowing level

                I really like the original definition of this item from Dark Souls 1# where it was one of the only two ways to remove being cursed.

                Curses cannot be cured but they can be transferred, this item takes the curse for it was once someone. I really like that! Both creepy and cool!

                  What I don't get is that Yuria wants you to be the lord of hollows, marry anri, yadayadayada, and sells infinite purge stones

                    I cured my hollowing at the firekeeper, did the ritual of avowal, failed Yuria's questline, and now in NG+ I am still hollow but I can't use purging stones...

                        It cures all Hollowing but not the Dark Sigils. So that means you will look human after using this, but when you die, you regain Hollowing from your sigils. For further clarification, the "human" effect is not permanent, and since it does not cure your Dark Sigils, you will not fail Yuria's questline.

                          Contrary to the statement above, Yuria offered purging stones after beating the end boss, prior to starting NG+. I don't know how many she had. Unfortunately, I started NG+ after the Usurpation ending without purging, and although NG+ removes all of your Dark Sigils, it does not remove your hollowing, so I now have to remain at hollow level 99 until I reach the Profaned Capital, if I don't want to pursue Yoel's and Yuria's quest again. That's pretty annoying.

                              By using this, will Yuria's questline still be available? It says she will leave Firelink if the Dark Sigil is remoed but this item says that it only resets the Dark Sigil count to zero right, so we still have it right? Having it at 0 is fine for her quest?

                                  "Ash-colored stone encasing a skull.Secret treasure of Arstor, the Earl of Carim.Reduces curse build-up and breaks curse.Humans are helpless against curses,and can only redirect their influence.The Purging Stone does not dispel curses,but receives them as a surrogate. The stoneitself was once a person or some other being."Doesn't this sound better and/or make more sense? :P
