      i figured out if the wretches drop the titanite scale. and they dont. i downloaded a trainer thing called Infinity or as its called now Wemod and it has a trainer for a***** ton of games and it has one for Dark Souls III and it had a item discovery hack in there. so i tried it and i killed about 20 of those baby faced demons (wretches) and none of em dropped a titanite scale.

        In case nobody has pointed it out, the Earth Seeker should be added to the list of non-boss weapons upgraded with titanite scales. Not sure how to edit and too lazy to find out haha

          From a recent playthrough, I have consistently been getting scales from the Overgrown Lothric Knight in Dreg Heap. From the first to the second bonefire, I have been able to get at least 4 scales per run by killing all the Overgrown Lothric Knights I run into.
          Scales drop from any ‘common enemies’ from earlier stages in Dreg Heap I believe, since I have also been consistantly getting scales from Thralls as well.

            There are 4 titanite scales In the area where midir first appears, the first 2 are on a corse at the end of a tunnel, the same one an undead cleric is hiding in, the other 2 are on a corpse below the path just before the mini catacombs area entrance. There is also a cystal lizard not far from the shared grave bonfire that drops a scale and a twinkling.

                Could someone please fix the error "...with the single exception of the Cleric's Candlestick well as some other weapons..." It's a contradiction. I won't because I am just too lazy to go and start. Thanks n' much love.

                  easy to farm03 May 2016 19:31  

                  Today I found out, that they are acutally very easy to farm. I wonder if they nerf it on the long run https://youtu.be/H21_Y7YtGwE

                  • Can only find 24 per playthrough26 Apr 2016 02:30  

                    That's enough to fully upgrade one weapon and partially upgrade the other (to +3). The rest need to be bought or farmed.

                        Can't buy scales if you give Greirat's ashes to Shrine Maiden(Killed him at the beginning, so might be just me)16 Apr 2016 01:38  

                        I don't know if its just on my end, but after killing Greirat at the beginning and giving her the ashes, the option to buy the scales 3 times didn't show up

                          Not 100% Drop Chance?15 Apr 2016 06:08  

                          I've killed the ones at the Road of Sacrifices, Cathedral of the Deep, and Farron Keep Perimeter. So far, only one has ever dropped. It was from the one at the beginning of the Road of Sacrifices. Since then, zero have dropped for me at all.

                            Can someone describe the location in text? It looks like video links are still getting eaten whenever a page gets updated.
