Dark Souls 2 Estus Flask upgrade guide

The Estus Flask is possibly the most important tool for Dark Souls 2 players. It lets you quickly recover health without the wait of a Lifegem. If you've read our Dark Souls 2 review (or if you don’t live under rock), you know that healing yourself is key to surviving in this world.

But you're not stuck with just one Estus Flask. Find a Flask Shard, and you can get yourself another flask. Find some Sublime Bone Dust, and you can boost the healing power of each individual flask. Follow along, and we'll show you where to find every shard and bone dust!

Estus Flask Shard locations are on page two! Sublime Bone Dust locations are on page three!
