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.
- Given to the player by the Emerald Herald in Majula.
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 + 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.)
Lmao I literally didn't even know you could upgrade these, I thought they just scaled with your level or something. Got all the way to the Dragon Shrine without upgrading my Estus Flask even once.
Sometimes I drink the estus but I get no hp. The character even does the full animation, but doesn't heal up and I have to drink again to heal. I have also seen this happening to some streamers. Does someone know what's happening?
Seems like everyone’s still unaware but agility decreases the time required to sip estus
Extremely suicidal to use in the middle of a battle. Double-chug or use lifegems instead, but don't risk a single chug in front of anyone.
OP plz nerf
There's a special rule you should follow with these flasks: NEVER use them in the middle of a fight.
I like how it takes 3 hours to drink from it. Hey, at least we have lifegems to make up for this*****.
I love this game truly, with hundreds of hours, but having to stand still for so long to heal in a game that just throws in super aggressive enemies is one of the worst design choices in this game
SOMEHOW I don't even have an estus flask? where do you 1st get it? did I somehow pass it up and miss it?
Why is there a extra estus shard? I have 12 estus and another shard, can I use it for something else?
Where can I find them? Only have 5 so missing a few
I can't use my estus in PvP :'(
When someone rates your messages it recharges your estus. Praise the sun!
I wonder what triggers the recharging of estus flask during combat, It already happens to me several times but I just can't figure out how
