Undead Hunter Charm is a Projectile in Dark Souls 3.

Undead Hunter Charm

Tool used to hunt down the Undead. Block Estus recovery within a limited area.

Used long ago by Lloyd's cleric knights on their Undead hunts. Although Allfather Lloyd is long forgotten by the Way of White, his hunts have lived on, and this charm allows one to challenge Undead without fear of tenacious healing.


Undead Hunter Charm Usage

  • The charm is a thrown projectile that creates a small cloud on impact.
  • Any undead or enemy player that passes through the cloud will be unable to use their Estus for 25 seconds.
  • Can also put mimics (Avaricious Beings) to sleep.



Undead Hunter Charm Locations



  • Effect Duration: 25 seconds




  • Just like they did in previous installments, throwing one on a Mimic will put it to sleep and cause it to give up its loot.

      If you can get the timing down, I recommend item swapping these with Throwing Knives. The lobbed throw animation is tremendously unreliable and clunky, and most players are just gonna dodge until you run out.

          Lol, i remember seeing an argument on here that these are useless and now everyone uses them. They've always been a must have :^D

            Really underused item. Good against npc invaders as well as other players. After a successful backstab, throw this down to immediately negate healing. In my experience it's best to manually aim instead of locking on to make use of its AOE. It can be a gamechanger if your invading or even helping as a blue phantom. The quantity held hurts its spamibility, but its probably for the best.

              If using a straight sword, use rotten pine resin. Procc the poison on her and she will use all of her estus flasks. Then slice away. Made it a really easy fight.

                I had no idea these could be used on mimics. I just got into DS 3 a couple weeks ago and I’ve found that using poison mist (or toxic) works like a charm (no pun intended). Pairing that with my simple parry dagger and it’s like the mimic killed itself for me. Plus I have the added bonus of not having to spend souls to buy more charms

                  Met an invader on high wall lothric today. And undead charm didn't work on him for sure. He healed himself 4 times full hp (he had 1000+ hp) through the charm so it wasn't divine blessing (can carry only 1 of them) and wasn't siegbrau (heals only 20%+100 and easy to notice frost resist buff after it). So I guess sometimes people just glitching through it or hacking. (I hit him with charm 3 times and charm visal effect was on him)

                      Can you use these on hosts when you are a phantom? I always screw with hosts when they summon me for Vordt when my sign is at the Dancer, and I just got the idea of using this on the host and watching them panic roll for 25 seconds :D I tried it but I couldn't get it on him, so idk if it's just that my aim wasn't good enough or if you can't hit your own host :/

                          I always called it "Mimic Nip" for it makes them go back to sleep or open up without danger of being munched. All I ever really used it for to be honest.

                            Keeps skeletons from reanimating09 Oct 2016 05:55  

                            It isn't listed, but throwing this at a skeleton that reanimates, and killing the skeleton when it still has the effect on it makes it so they don't come back to life
