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.

      Compared to the other covenant grinds, this was a breeze. I got all 30 in just 35 minutes at the Keep Ruins bonfire. This was my last grind for NG and I'm happy to report that it's much, much better than any of the others.

        I'm trying to complete an Artorias build, it seems nobody is entering farron keep without the covenant active so they don't get invaded. I really need the sword Grass and would rather not farm for a day and a half.

          Drop rates for these are the best because it took me 1 15 hours to get 30 from Keep Ruins Bonfire gl folks.

            Got loads of gems farming these morons. The drop rate is pretty decent, got 30 swordgrass from 192 runs of the 3 Ghrus. About 2-ish hours worth of grind.

              The giant Ghrus wielding trees seem to have better drop rates for both this item and heavy gems. I haven't done testing to see if it's more efficient to farm the three around Pharis' gear or not, but probably not considering how much longer they take to kill.

                This covenant item farming is actually the legit worst in any game I've ever played. Like holy hodrick how can i kill those guys by the perimeter with Sage rapier, coins, and gold ring +3, run 8 times in a row and none of the enemies drop a single item. Not a shard, no gem, no wep or shield, no grass at all. From Softs rng relies wayyyyy to much on a higher power to literally come down and physically bless you.

                  Think I like Farron Keep Perimeter the most as a Melee. Sure the darkwright are annoying. But I got around 15 swordgrasses when I got 10 Pale Tongues. Might take 6 hours to farm the rest for now.

                    can confirm this was the easiest covenant item farm in the entire franchise, got 28 in like an hour or so (already had two)

                        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.

                            Hol up, is nobody here interested in artorias's shield? I really thought at least one artorias cosplayer would be interested.

                              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%.
