Estus Flask


A green glass bottle of unknown make. Fill it with Estus at a bonfire, and drink from it to restore HP.
The nature of the link between the Estus flasks and the bonfires that illuminate the world of the Undead is entirely unknown.
But that is of little concern, for any Undead knows the value of these precious flasks."


Estus Flask is a health recovery Item in Dark Souls 2.




Healing item. Upgraded with two separate items:

can be taken to the Emerald Herald in Majula to allow for more uses of the flask (one shard allows one extra use, 12 flask max)

increases the amount that each sip of the flask heals. To use it, burn at the Bonfire in Majula. (Maximum is +5)

  • Going to New Game+ does not increase the maximum limit.

Pressing the action button repeatedly whilst the bottle is at the mouth of the player allows multiple drinks to be taken without the bottle being put away. This can allow for rapid health regeneration.
You can also drink while on a ladder.





Each upgrade increase health restored by +50.
The exact amount that one estus flask recovers for each upgrade is as follows:

Upgrade Level Recovery Amount (in health points)
Estus Flask 550
Estus Flask + 1 600
Estus Flask + 2 650
Estus Flask + 3 700
Estus Flask + 4 750
Estus Flask + 5 800



(Estus flask may have been shattered into 12 pieces this may be why you must collect shards to restore it.)
