Titanite Slab is an Upgrade Material in Dark Souls 3.

Titanite Slab


Titanite slab for weapon reinforcement, said to once belong to the gods. Reinforces weapons to their highest level.

Titanite slabs are smithing materials of the gods, and weapons reinforced with slabs will be admired no less than their previous legendary weapons.

 

Titanite Slab Usage

  • Reinforces a weapon to its ultimate form:
    • +10 for regular weapons
    • +5 for special weapons

  

 

Titanite Slab Locations

  • 2x at Firelink Shrine:
  • 1x at Profaned Capital: received from Siegward of Catarina after releasing him from his cell.
  • 3x at Grand Archives
    • 1x Found in a chest behind a bookcase on the same floor as the large wax basin. Pull the lever on the floor above, between two haunted bookcases, near the second place the Crystal Sage flees to. The bookcase and chest are next to the railing overlooking the ground floor; you can see the bookcase move when you pull the lever.
    • 1x is obtained after killing the three Golden Winged Knights at the very top of Lothric Castle. Start from the Grand Archives bonfire and use the elevator. Head outside towards the Lothric Princes boss area and immediately turn left onto a spiraling staircase. Make your way to the dome shaped roof to find the knights. 
    • 1x found after activate the elevator outside the Lothric Princes boss fight. Get the elevator to the lower floor, near the Dragonslayer Armour boss fight. Trigger the elevator to go up, and jump out immediately - a different elevator platform will rise in its place. Ride this platform down to find the Titanite Slab in a small niche. 
  • 2x at Archdragon Peak
    • 1x next to Havel Knight.
    • 1x can be found after defeating the Nameless King. Walk ahead from the bonfire and loot the nearest corpse.
  • 3x at Painted World of Ariandel
    • 1x near the Depths of the Painting bonfire. Head left past the Giant Crabs and past several Tree Women, until you come to an icy enclosed area with a Smoldering Tree Woman guarding the Snap Freeze spell. After defeating her, head back and you will notice that a ladder has appeard on your left hand side. Climb the ladder, and then climb another ladder to find a body with a Titanite Slab on it. 
    • 1x received after defeating Sister Friede's second phase. Note that she also has a third phase, which will start shortly after receiving the Slab. (only once per NG cycle)
    • 1x in the Corvian Settlement. Received by speaking to the Corvian Crow NPC after defeating Sister Friede. He will have moved from his previous spot, now standing outside the house, near the ladder leading down to the gulch. (If you kill him before you killed Sister Friede the slab will be on the desk near the location where he was originally.)
  • 4x at The Ringed City
    • Lapp will tell you there's treasure in a cavern in Earthen Peak, right at the the swamp before the third Angel. It's guarded by a Harald Knight in the left corner. If you die 3 times or miss it and come back to Lapp he will gift it to you and you'll find the Harald Knight slain.
    • Beating Halflight, Spear of the Church earns you a slab. (only once per NG cycle)
    • Shira will give you a slab for killing Darkeater Midir. You can also get it from her by killing her after the final boss in the chapel to the right of Filianore's Rest's bonfire.
    • Kill the Ringed Knight wandering in the final area alone to the left for one. (only once per NG cycle)

 

 

Notes

  • The maximum amount of Titanite Slabs the player can get in a single New Game cycle is 8 in the base game, 3 more in the Ashes of Ariandel DLC, and 4 more in the Ringed City DLC, for the total of 15.
  • It's worth checking the Farming page if you want to upgrade a lot of weapons before your NG+, to make max souls.

 

 

Trivia

The runes etched on the Titanite Slab have a possible translation, explained in this article. The translation is vague and uncertain, and it is as follows:

Line 1:
The meek sought God/the divine in the trees (archtrees). Yggdrasil, the tree of life (still archtrees) bestowed the gifts of plenty, joy and health.

Line 2:
They remained and hardship set in. They found a spark (Lord Souls in the first flame) which turned into a Sun, driving away the cold/ice.  Terrible trouble came (conflict with dragons).  The Sun (Gwyn and his allies/army) ended this conflict.

Line 3:
This age (gods in Anor Londo) continued and began an era of wealth and plenty. Man will (or has begun to) ascend.  Cold/ice will return.

      Shocked there are so many people complaining about limited slabs. I just gave the game a replay and was going to say they were way too plentiful on here. To those complainers I'd say there's a lot to be said for a game making you somewhat responsible for your decisions and making you work with limited resources, even though there are so ****ing many that what I just said doesn't even really apply to DS3. If there were the 8 of the base game, but spread out between vanilla and the DLCs (say, 4, 2, and 2), I'd say that's a much more reasonable amount, though I'd personally make it 5 total.

        Best solution would be an ingame rewarding system that costs time but is still doable.
        Whilst 15 slabs is plenty, sometimes it is not enough, maybe.
        Having to re-do the story several times on several characters might get boring for many, for others it might be a breeze.
        The best solution in my opinion would be a trade of items like the pump-a-rum crow which will be hard if not even impossible to abuse.
        Make it by aquiring key items that only drop from npcs from an area you cant summon other players in.
        No matter how easy enemies are on the firelink shrine, if you need to kill 1000 of those to get a slab you still need quite a lot of time to get even one.
        Exchange these easy mobs with something that is a bit harder to kill.

        Another way could be an arena fight vs 5 summoned npcs at random. Imagine having to fight Tsorig, Hodrick and those 3 from the grand archives in a circular area to get a slab.

        Well. we won't see it, it's just an idea anyways.
        Good luck picking your weapons and don't be the boring guy with a +10 claymore and the other mainstream stuff.

          PEOPLE, Siegward dupe if you don't want to start NG+. If not, download honest merchant. Seriously, it's been said before, read. And now I'm just like you because I'm complaining about you complaining and people did that already so now I'm just sad. You did this to me.

            Have a bunch of 4/5 and 9/10 weapons and it never bothered me. I know that slab wont make me better at the game.

              Is there a good reason to not give them a 1% or lower drop rate on some lategame enemies, or make them buyable for something crazy like a million souls a pop or whatever?

              Why limit how many you can get completely? Would the game be any worse off if some people were able to get more than 8 per playthrough through tedious grinding? Who ever made this game i can make better just with 15 people.

                    I think the best solution would be if you got a slab for every fight with Spear of the Church. Just think about it: this is basically end of the game and finding way to repeat this boss fight without a guide is hard enough. Plus playing online this might be even more difficult (but sometimes easier). And it wouldn't be a f****** random drop.

                      gotta love the souls community, the entire comment section has to do about the whole limited slab thing. this is why i don't come here often.

                        For anyone complaining these aren’t farmable, they are. Not by killing the same enemy, no, but by running the game quick. 90-120 minutes for fewest bosses gets you 2-3 slabs in the grand archives, around 4 hours for all bosses necessary for all 15 slabs. That’s quick enough farming for me.

                          Why can't we have best of both worlds? Like, 15 confirmed slabs is cool and everything, but why not keeping a way to farm them? I don't really feel like doing a NG+ for another 15, but I'd enjoy being able to upgrade every weapon of a class I've got. Like... If I wanted to use a spear, be able to use every spear efficiently.

                          You won't need more than 15, not even more than 6 if you just wanna play the game. But if you're going for fashion, and you feel like changing every once in a while your character look, it would help to keep it efficient.

                            why are people complaining so much? 15 slabs is 15 fully upgraded weapons I've finished the game and still have slabs left over. Find a weapon you like get it to +9 and if you like it throw a slab in. I only have 5/6 fully upgraded weapons so 15 is plenty in my opinion

                              DS2 is the best of both worlds when it comes to slabs, you get plenty of guaranteed ones (the number being around 12 or so). But you can also farm them and also you have a much higher chance of getting them while farming (It's still not a high chance but it isn't like the terrible 2% chance of darkwraiths)

                                You have 15 slabs in one ng cycle, I don't get why people complain about not being able to farm these.
                                You have enough slabs to change your build all 5 times through Rosaria and you would still be able to have 3 +10 weapons per build. And in DS3 it's almost impossible to miss a slab, while in DS1 it's very easy to not find one the entire game.

                                  Nice to see people are still defending the limited number of Slabs per playthrough. Hopefully Miyazaki has come up with actual incentives to make you want to do repeat playthroughs with Eldin Ring. If you can get as many Slabs as you want and respect your stats as much as you want, normal people will praise that as an objective improvement over DS3. Not you people though, unless somehow the narrative conveniently shifts lmao.

                                    Y'all excited for Elden Ring? Or more accurately, are y'all excited to point out how much of disappointment it is compared to DS1?

                                      I think slabs should work differently on the game. First, weapons upgraded with Twinkling and Scales shouldn't need slabs to get to +5. Second, there should be fewer slabs in the game. 5 seems like a good number. And third, they should be farmable, maybe as a rare drop from more difficult enemies like the golden Winged Knights, the big snakes dudes at Archdragon Peak, or the big giant dudes that summon the ruin sentinels in the Ringed City. With those changes trying new builds on the same character via Rosaria becomes much less restrictive, since now you doesen't have a limited number of slabs until you'll need to create a character and play the game all over again, but it isn't ultra easy, since finding slabs is rarer. This is just my opinion though

                                        The fact that people think that farming in DS1 is better is so upsetting and sad, you can literally get 10 of these things before you fight the abyss watchers, you wouldn't do it that way, but it's possible, and it goes to show how many of these are, I feel people just act like DS1 has a better upgrade system just because it's easier

                                          how the absolute **** do you people use so many weapons per playthrough? for pvp i might be able to understand, but still makes absolutely no sense
                                          every NG+ = 15 more max refinement weapons
                                          not only that, but life ring and sage ring both require you to go to NG++ to get their +3 version, so youre probably going to need to do NG+ anyways.

                                            DS1 upgrading system as a whole beats DS3 because you can max out weapons that require twinkling and demon titanite without needing slabs while DS3s 15 slabs beat DS1s 3 guaranteed slabs because nobody is going to farm 10-12 extra slabs from darkwraiths and we all know that. If you’re an elemental build this is even more true because the coloured slabs in DS1 are even rarer than the regulars. DS3 would need to give you the option to max weapons with twinkling titanite and titanite scales without slabs to be on par with DS1 but it doesn’t and those 15 slabs are 15 weapons you’re locked with regardless of what type of titanite each need. I didn’t fully think about these specifics previously. Things only go further downhill for DS3 when you remember that catalysts need to be upgraded too. So yeah if I was making a build with only weapons that needed slabs I would take the 15 in DS3 any day but if want to take advantage of weapons that require special titanite as well as regular titanite then DS1 is the clear winner.

                                              I get why the amount of slabs you get per play through is finite, but they should have made it possible to get addition slabs. They could have maintained the special-ness of slabs by making getting the extra slabs more difficult than these 15. One idea is getting a slab for every 100 covenant rewards you give to a given covenant. This would make covenant items always valuable (as now they are useless after you give 30 to their respective covenant) and it would have allowed people who PVP a lot to have access to more slabs. These being the players that need slabs the most.

                                                    Making it so that theres only a limited number of slabs per playthrough with no way to farm them is ridiculous. This game has things that just obnoxiously push 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.

                                                      You can also get it from (Shira) by killing her after the final boss in the chapel to the right of Filianore's Rest's bonfire.”

                                                      Neither of these worked for me but do you get the slab from the filianore spear you fight? If you haven’t yet killed Midir and you kill Shinra you will not receive the slab, and the door to her room will be open with her gear

                                                        DS3 handled these best. Remove the farming BS and give more guaranteed ones. I always hated the rarity of slabs in DS1 because it only makes the difference in ONE upgrade which doesn’t even increase the damage a larger amount than the previous 9 upgrades from common materials. The increase they gave as the final reinforcement NEVER justified how precious the game made them. It was more of a personal novelty of having your favourite weapon maxed out imo. Thank you Dark Souls 3! Oh actually I just recalled that DS2 made them common as well thank you Dark Souls 2 too!

Instead of going from the depths of the paining bonfire, use the bonfire across the bridge from friede and jump down to the platform next to the bridge. I'm not sure if you have to kill the tree lady for it to appear though.

And no, farming Darkwraiths in New Londo for Slabs is a joke - even with 410 Item Discovery you get a Slab once in a blue moon. Heavens forbid you're a quality STR/DEX build - those White, Red and Blue Slabs will be worthless, only good to be broken down by Frampt. So let's appreciate the Titanite Slabs of DS3, yes?

It's under the elevator just outside the Twin Princes' room. Take it down one level, then send it back up, but stay where you are. Another elevator will come up from the bottom - take that down, and at the bottom you'll find a little alcove with a corpse and a lever; the slab is on that corpse.

Anyways... anyone know if picking up 30 slabs in one new game cycle will get you softbanned? I mean it's technically a glitch I'm not using cheat engine... Just don't know if Fromsoft has a system that automatically flags something impossible like obtaining 30 slabs in one new game cycle

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  I remember in DS2 SotFS you could farm slabs from the room in dranlic castle with the ruin sentinels in it, I got like 30 in the end.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    I think the fastest way to obtain one of these (or rather the least painful) is if you have asses of ariandel dlc... the only two bosses you need to kill are vordt and the crystal sage for it to work.. fairly easy ones.. once inside the ariandel world completely ignore every enemy and run for the second bonfire then across the bridge is the chapel, you drop the bridge, climb down, reach the bottom of the painting and past the crabs is a tree guarding the snap freeze spell.. kill it and the ladder should fall for your slab... only threat are the wolves which are fast and can chase you and maybe if you are unlucky to get one shotted by a millwood knight great bow...it works for me, first try 9 out of 10 without having to fight dancer, oceiros and gundyr with a low lvl character.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        You can also get the Lapp titanite slab twice. When initially starting The Ringed City, go along as you will and purposefully miss Lapp's first appearance and run down to the swamp and obtain the slab. Then, after you grab it, go trigger Lapp and move his questline all the way towards where he mentions the slab. You can then go down, die to the Harald Knight, and then he will gift you another slab.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Yeah, this seems to be wrong information on the Ringed City DLC. 2 of the slabs listed are from the same two NPCs that you can get in one of two ways, not both times. I completed both questlines and only got 1 per, and ended with a total of 4.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              -Lapp will tell you there's treasure in a cavern in Earthen Peak, right at the the swamp before the third Angel. It's guarded by a Harald Knight in the left corner. If you die or miss it and come back to Lapp he will gift it to you and you'll find the Harald Knight slain.
                                                                                              -Beating Halflight, Spear of the Church earns you a slab. (You can reset the fight, but a slab is only awarded on the first kill)
                                                                                              -Shira will give you a slab for killing Darkeater Midir. Alternatively, you can get this slab from her by killing her after the final boss in the chapel to the right of Filianore's Rest's bonfire.
                                                                                              -Kill the Ringed Knight wandering in the final area alone to the left for one.
