Xanthous Ashes is an Ash in Dark Souls 3.

Xanthous Ashes

Umbral ash of a sorcerer who explored the golden sorceries of a long-lost land. With this, the shrine handmaid will prepare new items.

They were called xanthous scholars, but some foolishly imitate them by simply dressing in yellow.

      It's funny how the meaning of the xanthous set changes with each game: in ds1 its associated with an exile chaos pyromancer, in ds2 its associated with the dark pilgrims, and here in ds3 its associated with the scholars who research the golden sorceries
