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.
  • One in the Painted World of Ariandel, Corvian Settlement. From the Corvian Settlement bonfire, go across the bridge and drop down behind the gated area to the left containing a lever, a Sewer Centipede, and a Simple Gem.
  • Simple Gems can be farmed from the Jailers in Irithyll Dungeon.




  • 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 0.015 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.

      If I infuse this on a weapon like the cestus or the sellsword twin blades, will it double the regen when I switch to dual wielding?

        On my pyro, I usually main a simple kite shield with a chaos longsword. Let's me regen my fp for blasting the tougher enemies in any area at the cost of only a little damage absorption on my shield (drops from 100 physical absorption to 95).

          I like to put this enchantment on the Executioners Greatsword, put it in the off hand, and use whatever else weapon I prefer at the time/build to spam the WA on easier, without having to give up Estus charges for Mage problems.

              When I spwan in TRC or any of the other large areas (where you need to run a bit to find the host) I usually equip two simple infused cestus +9 (no need to waste slabs) after casting tears.

              By the time I find the host, I have already regenerated half my fp (I have 14 attunement, for tears) and quickly swap for any weapon.

              That's a good way to not waste an ashen flask right away at spawn. Also it can be helpful after running away to recast tears and estus refill when you're basically dry and the host resummoned.

                Fantastic infusion, works fantastically with low FP WAs and the Farron Ring. Use it with the Ringed Knight Straight Sword or the Frayed Blade on a Weapon Skill shield, works fantastically.

                  This should've added INT scaling and no split damage like the blessed gem, (although it'd be more fitting for the crystal gem because, y'know, crystal in DS1, but this has FP regen like how blessed has HP regen)

                    People using this gem for the FP regen as mages are retarded. Try using in on a caestus, keep it on your hip, 2-hand a Perseverance WA weapon and start collecting hatemail from the R1 spammers calling you a hacker.

                      This gem would have been so much better as a sort of raw magic gem, or at least a gem that allowed weapons to do physical damage that scaled with intelligence just like what enchanted did in SotFS I get where they were going with it personally, they tried to mimic the amount of infusions that Demon's Souls provided (they provided 2 types of magic infusions in DeS: crescent and moon, crescent being the one that made your weapon scale entirely with magic and negated all other scalings and gave you magic regen) but where Demon's Souls succeeded (debatable) DS3 flat-out failed with this My suspicions that this gem was meant to be similar in function to moon in DeS is not unfounded either because I notice when I infuse something with simple, the strength or dexterity scaling ends up being a bit higher than with crystal infusion, but that's not saying much as it's only a couple of units in exchange for weaker magic damage
