||Anri of Astora & Yuria of Londor|
|Talk to him in a kitchen near a lake-like area and share an Estus Soup with him. If you want Grierat saved during his pillage in Ithyrill of the Boreal valley, do NOT talk to him. You can still take estus soup without talking to him. Talking to him will cause him to nap and not be alert to save Grierat. However, another way to save Grierat is to have Ubreakable Patches save him.||Siegward of Catarina / Greirat of the Undead Settlement|

Get summoned by Sirris in the small room before the boss area. Hodrick is a tough fight, and it's entirely possible he will kill Sirris, so approach this fight carefully. After that speak with her at Firelink.||Sirris of the Sunless Realms|
|Return to Rosaria's Chamber after you reach Anor Londo bonfire and pick up the Orb in front of her. You can use the Black Eye Orb to invade him in the room above Aldrich's bonfire and kill him.||Leonhard|
You can send Greirat to scavenge for the third time to Lothric Castle. He will die if he goes; there is no way to save him. Doing so will allow you to find Greirat's Ashes which will allow the Shrine Handmaid to sell Exploding and Splintering Bolts, along with every other item Greirat used to sell.
