Wolf's Blood Swordgrass is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Wolf's Blood Swordgrass

A leaf signifying duty fulfilled by the Watchdogs of Farron, who stand beside the old wolf to ensure serenity to those at rest. Depicts a swordgrass leaf stained with dried blood.

Long ago, the swordgrass leaf quietly identified members of the Undead Legion. In the rotted forest rest the spirits of warriors past, their acceptance and gratitude toward their guardians is expressed eloquently by the humble leaf.


Wolf's Blood Swordgrass Usage



Wolf's Blood Swordgrass Locations

  • One blade of grass is obtained after each successful defeat of a trespasser of Farron Swamp, obtained while in the Watchdogs of Farron Covenant
  • From the Old Wolf of Farron bonfire, go down the ladder and head right. It'll be in a corner near the Estus Soup.
  • Dropped from all types of Ghru as a rare drop.


  • It is highly recommended you increase your Item Discovery stat before farming. Equipping the Symbol of Avarice (+100), Covetous Gold Serpent Ring (+50), Crystal Sage's Rapier (+50), and using Rusted Coins (+50) will boost Item Discovery by 250 points (315 with the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring +3, which can be obtained in NG in The Ringed City). Items will drop approximately 2.5/3.15 times more often, reducing farming time by around 60-70%.
  • Increasing Luck also increases Item Discovery by one point per level.
  • The Crystal Sage's Rapier will still give its boost while sheathed on the player's back and without having the required stats to wield it.
  • One good place to farm is to kill the three Ghrus on the bridge near the Keep Ruins bonfire. There are several methods proposed by the community to efficiently farm them.
    • Pyromancy: Chaos Fireball can apparently be used to one-shot all three Ghrus. Use Hidden Body to avoid detection.
    • Sorcery: You need to be able to use (Crystal) Soul Spear to one-shot a Ghru. When farming, position yourself so that you do not aggro them but can still lock on to the two closest Ghrus. Cast CSS once to kill the closest one, which will also kill the farthest one. Cast CSS to the second one, and RUN to get its loot (if any) before the body falls off the bridge. The effect of one Rusted Coin can last 4 "cycles", meaning you kill 12 Ghrus/minute.
    • Some players have reported that melee approach can also be used to quickly kill all three Ghrus.
  • Another good farming location, which doubles as a Pale Tongue farming location, is the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire.
  • Invading via Red Eye Orb while being in the covenant does not yield Swordgrass. Instead it gives you Pale Tongues.
  • From 195 times farming by keep ruins bonfire, the statistics seem to be 1.68% chance for the poisonbreathing ghrus to drop a swordgrass and 0.92% for the shieldbearing ghrus. The conclusion is that there's 1.2% chance for a swordgrass for every time you kill the three by the keep ruins bonfire.

        I got 15 of these in a bout 40 minutes at the keep ruins bonfire, item discovery at 307 the entire time. Used like 33 coins in those 40 minutes. One of the easiest farms I've done in a souls game.

              There’s some good action at the keep with this covenant today. Lots of trespassing, managed to already get 3 in the last 30 minutes. I’ll be trying to get all 30 for the max rank then I’ll be changing to way of blue, maybe help some of the dark moons out there get some summons.

                I only have the Crystal Sage's Rapier with base luck 7, but I've farmed 2 swordgrass in the space of 45 mins. Not much in the picture, but it is a lot considering my stats and low discovery. Maybe the guy who provided the stats was super unlucky? I think the chance for swordgrass drops is higher, maybe 3-6%.

                    I don't know why, but i really like the description of this item.
                    the idea of a long warrior manifesting his gratitude towards you by creating this feels so nice...

                      it seems 1.2% is only with base item discovery. i killed the 3 grus 70 times and got 8 swordgrasses (400+ item discovery) also i managed to die several times hope what the dead ones dropped wasnt the swordgrass

                        From keep ruins, locking on to the caster with CSS one shots both the caster and one of the spear bois. Care not to knock the third one off tho.

                          The probability calculations seem to be correct. The odds of you getting *at least* one swordgrass when killing the three ghrus by the keep ruins bonfire is ~3.5%(3.4807661952%), assuming of course that the chances of 1.68% from the caster and 0.92% from the shieldbearing are correct. I noticed this, because it is impossible for the chance to get at least one from the three is less than getting one from just the caster. On average this means you have to farm them ~857 times to get 30 swordgrass for the wolf ring, compared to the 2500 times it would take on average if the 1.2% was correct. So hopefully that made someone's day a little brighter. ^^

                            It seems like noone here knows how to do probability calculations... say, you go to the bridge and kill the three ghrus. they have a probability of two times p1 and one times p2 (poison mage) The probability to get one drop is NOT the average of the three. Rather you must ask: What is the probability that three times I get no drop. Then take 100% minus that to know what the probability is to get exactly one drop. here's the formula p(onedrop) = 1-(1-p1)*(1-p1)*(1-p2) multiply by 100 to get percentages. In our example: p1 = 0.0092 (0.92%) and p2 = 0.0168 ( 1.68%) That gives p(onedrop) = 3.48%.

                                So with a luck of 391, I grinded out 20 swordgrass in roughly longer than 30 minutes in the farm spot the wiki mentions! If you have a high-level character don't give up! Grab some luck boosters and good luck to all. :)
