Simple Gem is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Simple Gem


A gem of infused titanite, said to be an object of infatuation for victims of stunted development.

Used in infusion to create simple weapons.

Simple weapons inflict magic damage and restore FP very gradually, to help even a simpleton muster some mettle.

 

Simple Gem Usage

  • Infuse into a weapon to make it Simple.
  • Simple weapons deal magic damage which scales with Intelligence.
  • Simple weapons also restore FP while the weapon/shield is visible.

 

 

Simple Gem Locations

  • Irithyll Dungeon on a corpse across the bridge, immediately on the left when going down the stairs, next to 3 jailers and some cage spiders.
  • One dropped by crystal lizard above Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire (which is found by taking the one pathway leading opposite to an elevator shortcut before Anor Londo). It's where the fire-casting undead are at.
  • Simple Gems can be farmed from the Jailers in Irithyll Dungeon.

 

 

Notes

  • Requires the Giant's Coal in order to start infusing weapons.
  • FP restoration is only affected by the weapon's upgrade.
    • The FP base regeneration rate for is 1 FP every 5 seconds. (0.2 FP/sec)
    • It decreases by 0.217 seconds per upgrade level. (or increases by 0.15 FP/sec)
    • At +10 it replenishes 1 FP every 2.85 seconds. (0.35 FP/sec)
    • If two Simple weapons +10 are equipped, regeneration rate is a total of 0.7 FP/sec.
  • All weapons and shields have the same FP regeneration rate.
  • It may be a good idea to infuse a parrying item (such as the Buckler, Parrying Dagger, or Caestus in the offhand) with the Simple gem, as you are unlikely to use these items to block actual attacks in a PvP scenario. Therefore, you sacrifice a very small amount of damage absorption in exchange for a small FP regen buff.

      I’ve noticed that in most weapons the INT scaling is higher for simple than crystal. Does this infusion do more damage than crystal on a pure INT build?

        I find the design decisions with this gem pretty funny. Through most of the game you accumulate estus shards so that you can replenish FP...and then almost at the end when you can finally infuse this with its paltry regen rate you're already nearly at maximum estus and not likely to run out of fuel outside of invasions anyway.

          Another easy simple gem location is by the Corvian Settlement bonfire. If you go outside from the building, make a left and drop down at the next bridge on the right side. There will be a simple gem there but theres also a spittle witch monster so be careful.

            Works well with a non-magic build on an offhand parry tool, since most WAs dont require more than one fp to work. This is quite valuable since you dont need an ashen estus.

              The FP regen is very slow compare to the HP regen, Bless regen 2 HP/sec, Simple 1HP/2,85 sec..how can this fair??? Magic Class rely on FP to attack and the FP won't regen itself, while every melee class only need their stamina to keep fighting and even perform weapon art with little FP left..

                I used 2 +10 simple infuse parry daggers on my mage when I don't feel like wasting estus. Really helpful when your helping in other worlds.

                    For reference, one +10 Simple weapon would take 8.55 seconds to restore enough (3) FP to cast a single Farron Dart. It would take slightly more than two minutes for a Crystal Soul Spear.

                      So, I was being invaded at Pontiff, and while I waited for him to come to me (he never did even though I waited in at the arena, I guess he couldn’t see me?) I started using a bunch of random gestures, and when I left the gesture menu, I suddenly had a simple gem. I have no idea why

                        A blessed infusion heals 2hp/sec.
                        However, if you'd use simple infusion and use all FP for healing, the minimum you'd get would be 4hp/s - and that's, for example, from Sacred Chime of Fillianoire weapon art at half the FP required.
                        If used for Warmth spell or high faith Great Heal (for former one could even put on the dusk crown ring for the initial second) the healing output can be - again, averaging several minutes of use - about 11hp/second.

                        In other words buffing Simple infusion and FP regen of it would make Estus obsolete. We'd be back to Dark Souls 1 with 20 estus and 1-10x3 Great Heals healing twice the amount of an Estus Flask.
                        Right now you 'can' make it semi-obsolete, what by dual wielding + OldWolfCurvedSword/Pontiff's Left Eye, 6hp/s from 2xBlessed infusion+Sun Princess Ring, or using 1-2xSimple infusion+optinally dusk crown ring for a Warmth or, with high faith, a good heal. The drawback is that it's slow.
                        Higher FP regen would annihilate that 'slow' and Estus would be used only in an emergency, not as a limited resource you need to manage.
                        My thought is you can thank the healing spells/skills for the necessarily slow FP regen.

                          It bothers me how it doesn't make Physical scales of Intelligence just like blessed infusion does. It would be way better this way, and more logical since it's the counterpart of blessed.

                            the regen scaling down with the level seems to be incorrect, after testing a simple caestus +0 and +10, the difference is twice as fast (form 6 seconds to 3 seconds)

                              There was a ring in Demon's Souls called the fragrant ring that had the same effect. There was also a the phosphorescent pole weapon that always regenerated mana and could be upgraded. This gem is like a very weak version of those and wish FROM would make it stronger or add a ring that offers FP regen.

                                FROM, PLEASE BUFF THIS INFUSION AT LEAST UP TO 1 FP/2 SECONDS ON EACH WEAPON!!! THIS ISN'T EVEN USEABLE ON ANY TYPE OF INT BUILD ASIDE FROM SPAMING GREAT FARRON DART! 2 FP/2 SECONDS WOULDN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE BLESSED INFUSION ON FAITH BUILDS SO I DON'T SEE WHY THIS CAN'T HAPPEN! HELL, I'D LIKE THE TICK RATE TO DROP TO 1.5 SECONDS LIKE BLESSED AT +10, BUT ANYTHING WOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS? SOMEONE SET UP A DAMN PETITION OR CONTACT THEM ABOUT THIS PLEASE! IDK HOW TO... : /

                                  Simple gem infusion? Perfect for katanas.

                                  Currently running a low quality build mixed with sorcery - yet to finish first completion. 18 STR, 24 DEX, 32 INT

                                  Simple infusion on Black Blade at +6 gives C rank INT scaling, and unlike Crystal infusion it doesn't completely annihilate physical scaling bonuses :) Solid damage buffs and even damage scaling make it a very stable and reliable option.

                                  But best of all? Focus regeneration for weapon arts. I find the katana weapon parry to be the fastest responding parry in the game with the biggest window. Great for skewering Black, Silver and Lothric knights. Quick slice keeps opponents off balance with great lunge, high speed and burst damage potential. DIRT CHEAP WITH SIMPLE INFUSION!!!

                                  Guys, there's a reason Crystal becomes available in Farron Keep, but you have to suffer Irithyl and Anor Londo for Simple!
