    • 2x on a body, in the room filled with rats / blobs / bonewheel enemies, just below the second bonfire. (Video)
    • 2x on a body in the same room as previous shards, but in the hallway with the bonewheels.
    • Drops from the Skeletons in the Catacombs quite often. (Video)



  • For those wishing to farm Titanite Shards, be aware that merely progressing further into the game will cause you to start tripping over piles of them. Silver Knight enemies nearly always drop either a Titanite Shard or Large Titanite Shard each kill (sometimes multiple of them). One of the best farm locations is from the Anor Londo bonfire in the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley area.

      There is a scary fire boy right to the left of the old kings antechamber bondfire and he drops a titanite shard every single time he dies.

      • they are dropped by ghru grunts. not sure about other ghru variants. i picked up quite a few of them from the ghru while farming the black knight shield/sword/armor set behind the farron perimeter bonfire. get yourself some souls, shards AND gear!

          I'm a bit confused by the "first transforming hollow" to the right of first bonfire in High Wall. Is that the one near the bow you can pickup?

            The winged knight in the courtyard should have a much higher chance of dropping these literally going hollow trying to farm these from lothric knights

              trying to kill dancer before undead settlement, I've found out that lothric knights drop shards as well, but chances are slim.

                Making it so that theres only a limited number of slabs per playthrough with no way to farm them was the stupidest ****. This game has **** that just obnoxiously pushes you into another new game cycle by putting arbitrary limits on them. Makes even less sense when you think about how Bloodborne eventually gave you a way to get Blood Rocks without playing through the whole game again.

                At least you can exploit Rosaria's pale tongue cost as much as you want.

                  Best place that I've found for shards is the catacombs. Go to the bonfire where the rolling ball of skeletons is and just keep killing the 3 red eyed skeletons. Use the trap on the floor to kill the 2 down the hallway. It works nice cuz the bonfire is right there.

                    I just got two titanite shards from those hollow archers after the cristal lizard. I think if u make that rooftop jump and leap attack those guys it might drop.

                    • If you haven't gotten enough by simply progressing, when you get to the last Bo fire in amor Londo, kill the knights on the steps. Rinse. Repeat. The fire is so close and the knights literally come to you if your shoes are too heavy to go up the steps for a faster kill.

                        Sure sure. You can ofc rush to Anor Londor to get your weapon to +6. Or you make it +10 like me before even fighting the Abyss Watchers. Well matter of taste I guess. To each his own. Helpfull Note btw. I couldn't have completed DS3 without it...

                          woah never knew i could buy these and the large ones. I tho since they were way too common I had to farm them...

                            I have over 200 titanite shards in storage from farming. I want to sell them, but the game only lets me sell the number held not the number stored. The ones stored never come out, even after resting at a bonfire. How do i get titanite shards out of storage in order to sell them?

                              Thoses undead that has a wood cross in they back, they have a uncommon drop of titanite shard, put a crystal sage spear or any other boost of discovery and you can farm 2 that are near the crucificion woods bonfire ( in the ruins )

                                Do I have to waste points in luck to get them or something? Is there maybe an Item Discovery threshold needed to drop?
