DARK SOULS™ III NPC Reward Checklist

I much enjoy creating new characters every time I want to try a new build, and I also collect as much as possible on each of those characters. I’ve already learned the locations of every item in the game, but still struggled to understand the exact order for doing the NPC questlines and interactions since there are so many conditions and triggers that are easy to mess up. There are already great checklists out there that detail every single action to be taken for full completion, but I found them to be cumbersome for my need; thus, it was my wish to have a checklist that is purely dedicated to NPC rewards. If this resonates with you, then you may find this short guide to be of use.

Introduction

The purpose of this guide is to provide a succinct and ordered list of every rewarded NPC interaction.

Completion will yield all missable equipment, spells, and gestures that are provided by NPCs.

What’s In This Guide

A checklist for getting all NPC rewards (completed by Farron Keep NG+)

A list of all rewards arranged by NPC (for reference)

Is it possible to get everything in one playthrough?

No; there is only one interaction reward that must be completed on a NG+ cycle, and it’s a single gesture.

Proper Bow vs. Sirris’ Quest Rewards

The one and only truly exclusionary interaction. Apparently it used to be possible to obtain everything in one playthrough, but this has since been patched out. According to FextraLife’s page on Sirris:

“It is no longer possible to speedrun to Rosaria to offer a pale tongue before ever meeting Sirris to avoid failing her quest. Sirris will simply not show up, and giving the Dreamchaser’s Ashes to the handmaid does not fix this.” — http://wikia

Getting the Proper Bow gesture requires offering a pale tongue to Rosaria to unlock the Yellowfinger Heysel summon to get the gesture, however this can only be completed before killing Abyss Watchers. Sirris’ questline rewards items starting at Irithyll of the Boreal Valley all the way until after beating the Twin Princes, but she will leave for good, disrupting her questline, if a pale tongue is offered to Rosaria at any point (does not include rebirth or stat reallocation). The only thing from Sirris that can be obtained before getting Proper Bow is her Darkmoon Loyalty gesture (speak to her after giving the Dreamchaser’s Ashes to the Shrine Handmaiden). Thus, there are two paths here:

1) Sirris Quest Rewards

The following items are rewarded from thoroughly completing Sirris’ quest:

  • Darkmoon Loyalty – Gesture
  • Silvercat Ring + Blessed Mail Breaker
  • Dragonslayer’s Axe
  • Mirrah Chain Set + Creighton’s Steel Mask
  • Sunset Shield
  • Sunset Set
  • Sunless Talisman
  • Sunless Set

My preferred method is to complete her quest in the first NG cycle, then obtain Proper Bow in NG+.

2) Darkmoon Loyalty and Proper Bow

If you do not care about Sirris’ items you can wait until you get Sirris’ gesture, then turn in a pale tongue to get Heysel’s gesture. You can then do Sirris’ quest on a NG+ cycle for her items.

All NPC Rewards Checklist

  • This guide begins with a new character (class and gift are your choice).
  • When talking to NPCs, always exhaust their dialogue so that they begin to repeat their lines; “Talk” (with quotations) denotes choosing the menu option labeled as such when interacting, otherwise (no quotations) simply interacting with them causes dialogue.
  • Bosses should be killed in the order below for ease of use, but there is variability; just keep in mind that going out of order might disrupt questlines. Unlisted zones have no NPC interactions within them.
  • Once an item becomes available from a vendor, you can buy it at your own leisure, not necessarily right away.
  • If you want a second copy of Dark Hand, Darkdrift, or Morion Blade, you’ll need to get 5 more levels from Yoel to make Yuria appear in NG+; thus you should plan on saving the last 5 levels of your build to be done by Yoel in NG+.
  • The remaining quests that are worth doing every NG cycle are Greirat/Patches for the access to vendor items, and Siegward/Shira for their Titanite Slabs
