Lifegem is a type of healing consumable in Dark Souls 2.
- When used, it heals players by 500HP over 11 seconds.
- Can be used while on a ladder.
- 1x found on a corpse towards the end of the first fog gate on the left in Things Betwixt
- Dropped by certain enemies.
- Dropped by Forrest Grotesques in Shaded Woods
- The starting gift Healing Wares contains 20 lifegems as well as other items.
- Sold by Merchant Hag Melentia for 300 souls.
- 20 found in The Gutter, below the second bonfire, near the gear breaking pots.
Although it isn't as powerful as the larger variations of lifegems it can handle most occasions where you would use an Estus Flask and is much easier to acquire then the other variations so keeping some on hand isn't a bad idea although these lifegems will likely be useless once you start NG+

The fact people hate multiple healing in a game as difficult as dark souls. Lmao. I on the other hand want more healing mechanics in souls like these. Not to make the game easy, but to give you more options to play.
Having 0 estus, and no way of healing is kinda annoying. And springing back to a bonfire just to get more is tedious gameplay wise. So having extra healing in game shouldn't be a problem to be honest. Only thing i can see that makes this a problem is in pvp. But trying now to invade a person isn't so easy anyway these days to even find one.
Also some area in ds2 are just garbage in trying to even get to the boss. And having to waste estus on your way to the boss, only to not have enough to survive it is just not fun to deal with. So these gems are perfect for those areas
Do a Lifegems Only run for the true King's Field experience
"Duh! DS2 lifegems are OP, are cheese, DS2 is bad design, it's the worst game, you never die in DS2, duh"
-Play DS2, enemy start an attack ripping him 2/3 his healt bar.
-Pops a lifegem that will heal him 500hp after 11 seconds.
-Enemy attacks again and kills him.
99 lifegems is the key to cheese the game.
It can be useful to pop a bunch and then rush the dragon at Heide's. As long as you survive one hit of flame breath, and have a few life gems active, you should be able to get in.
Also, a lot of people have said that these can become extremely cheap if you use a ton of them, practically making you invincible against anything that doesn't 1-shot you if you use them repeatedly.
Lifegems can be very useful as their "use time" is fast and you get plenty around. Even movement is not as impaired as by an estus-shot, so I prefer to use one of these when things are getting heavy or seems like they will be, as the HealOverTime can cover future wounds if there's a flashy move you need to do to even the odds when playing GankSouls x.x
These are excellent against poison! Just one lifegem alone will heal at the rate that poison damages so your health will stay constant. Use this if you want to explore the poison caves in Harvest Valley without stress.
I like the fact that it take a year just to heal a bit of hp. Thank a lot for who ever design this item
They're made of Souls but they're coming out of your Butt if you use them
I can't believe how lacking this page/this wiki is. Popping multiple lifegems at once stacks the healing effect, which is hugely beneficial, allows you to heal faster, and keeps their use up no matter what level/NG+ you're on. They're sold for dirt cheap by Melentia, too, so you can always drop extra souls on a stack of 'em and just pop two or three for some fast heals.
if you sprint you regen faster.
