Stamina in Dark Souls 3 is the green bar and stat that appears on the player's HUD and stat screen respectively. It is used for most of the actions that the player character perfoms with the exception of walking. Stamina can be increased by investing points into Endurance when leveling up or by equipping certain items.

  • Stamina has a soft cap of 160 at 40 endurance. You will only gain 10 more stamina (170 total) at 99 endurance.

NOTE: Unlike Dark Souls 2, Stamina regeneration does not increase when equipment load is under 50%. I tested it with a stopwatch, and with 97 Stamina it takes exactly 2.5 seconds to regenerate regardless of equipment load.

 

Stamina regeneration

At 0-70% equipment load stamina regenerates at standard rate, at over 70% load regeneration rate is decreased. Standard rate apears to be 45 stamina/second. Chloranthy ring +2 adds plain 8 stam/sec, not percentage. Galvanize skill apperas to add plain 10 stam/sec. Other boost sources may be percent based, not sure.

Trivia

  • Stamina can go into negative values if you overuse your remaining stamina. This means that it will take longer for your stamina to recover to its maximum. [source]
    • Negative stamina recovers at the same rate as positive stamina.
    • Negative stamina has a cap of -60.

        HERE are the stamina upgrades beyond level 40, if anyone else here is curious, since this site FAILS to give the FULL results. The game's only been out for 3 years guys.... Embarrassing. Update this crap. Okay... You get one point of stamina at these levels of endurance... Lvl 46, Lvl 52, Lvl 58, Lvl 64, Lvl 70, Lvl 76, Lvl 82, Lvl 88, Lvl 94 and Lvl 99. All are in increments of 6 levels except for the last which is in 5.
        Who runs this site???

          OK so iv got my Knight at level 95 and I'm wondering if anyone can let me know if I'm doing things right.

          Vigor 31
          Endurance 32
          Vitality 30
          Strength 38
          Dexterity 18

          These are the stats that I felt were the important ones for me to increase.

          Weapons I'm using are great shields and great swords combined with the Irithyll Streight sword or another Streight sword as an extra weapon. I have my UltraGreatsword at level 7

          Iv put in 30 hours on Demon Souls but im very certain I levelled up wrong in that and now Dark Souls 3 is my next game which iv now played for close to 90 hours. If anyone can explain to me what iv done wrong (if I have) and how I should continue, I will be very grateful

            Stamina regen is stupid in this game. You waste a ring slot and use a shield with mout 100% physical reduction and buff and consume an item just to get one point something less time to regen and you cant make use of that the opponent needs only to roll away to avoid confrontation until they too are at max stamina again. I would only consider the shield if you dont mind some dmg (bcz it has high stability and needs only 10 str) and the power within which is a great buff. Other than that fromsoft can stick their ring and blossoms in their ass

              does it take more stamina to use a weapon you can only use two handed? lets say a weapon that requires 28str and we use it 2 handed with 20str? Have the feeling it does.

                Blocking reduction.10 Aug 2016 19:28  

                Does anyone know how blocking lowers the recovery rate? Like is it a percentage, or a flat ammount? If it's a percentage is it applied before or after items that increase recovery?

                    WRONG cap09 Jun 2016 21:19  

                    Please make the wiki information consistent. The endurance page clearly states that you get another 10 points of stamina by going from 40 endurance to 99 endurance. The increase may be very small compared to the earlier endurance levels but the real hard cap for stamina without any boosts from items is 170 at 99 endurance.

                      Stamina Consumption vs Weight of Weapon20 May 2016 00:44  

                      Fextranons, ASSEMBLE!Joking aside, I have found something interesting. I was testing the stamina consumption of my mains for my build, when I noticed that my straight swords have different stamina consumption rates. I have been using an Astora Sword for most of my playthrough, but have been preparing to switch to a Lotheric Knight Sword for my PvP build. Upon testing both, I found that while they both had 8 R1 swings at 24 endurance, the Astora was much more efficient than the Lotheric, close to having a ninth swing.My hypothesis is that, given the Lotheric Knight Sword is one unit heavier than the Astora Sword, that lighter weapons have more efficient stamina consumptions than heavier weapons of their class. Duh, you say, and it is indeed logical. What I am curious about however, is the exact formula, and if there are other factors at play, such as Poise and Weight Load.

                        Infinite stamina29 Apr 2016 15:46  

                        Why is that every mob/npc/boss in this game has infinite stamina but you.. Another definition of artificial difficulty.

                          Stamina Caps at 40 Endurance?24 Apr 2016 05:35  

                          Is it just me or does stamina cap at 40 Endurance for 160 stamina? I tried putting in additional points after that, saved up for 5 additonal levels worth around soul level 198 and stamina wouldn't rise above 160. On a side note though I was able to raise it to a grand total of 177 using Ring of Favor +2.

                            if you have 70% or higher equip load, stamina regeneration is slightly lower, about 25-30%
