Dark Souls 3: how to get the best ending

Many Dark Souls 3 players won’t make it to the end, but those who do will face a choice.

Without going into too much detail – after all, you want to enjoy a reward for you efforts in finishing the game – every player who advances as far as the final boss will be offered a choice.

However, just as with Bloodborne, those who have met a very specific set of conditions along the way will have more options. Here’s how to unlock each of the three main endings as well as the variant ending.

Ending #1: To Link the Fire

  • defeat the Soul of Cinder boss in the Kiln of the First Flame
  • use the bonfire in the Kiln of the First Flame

Ending #2: The End of Fire

  • obtain the Eyes of a Firekeeper key item from the Untended Graves
  • gift the Eyes of a Firekeeper to the Fire Keeper in Fire Link Shrine
  • defeat the Soul of Cinder boss in the Kiln of the First Flame
  • use the summon sign by the bonfire in the Kiln of the First Flame

Ending #2: The End of Fire – variant

  • obtain the Eyes of a Firekeeper key item from the Untended Graves
  • gift the Eyes of a Firekeeper to the Fire Keeper in Fire Link Shrine
  • defeat the Soul of Cinder boss in the Kiln of the First Flame
  • use the summon sign by the bonfire in the Kiln of the First Flame
  • as the screen fades to black, mash the attack key

Ending #3: Usurpation of Fire

  • never allow the Fire Keeper to cure the Dark Sigil
  • recruit Yoel of Londor on first visit to Foot of the High Wall
  • achieve level 20 Hollowing (die a lot) to allow Yoel of Londor to draw out the player’s true strength five times before defeating Aldrich
  • regularly exhaust dialogue with Yuria of Londor after Yoel’s death
  • meet with Anri of Astora on first visit to Halfway Fortress on Road of Sacrifices, exhaust dialogue
  • meet with Anri of Astora at Firelink Shrine after defeating Deacons of the deep, exhaust dialogue
  • meet with Anri of Astora at Catacombs of Carthus twice, exhaust dialogue, immediately kill Horace at Smouldering Lake.
  • meet with Anri of Astora at Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, exhaust dialogue, and do not kill the assassin in this room
  • visit the Darkmoon Tomb in Anor Londo and speak to a pilgrim to marry Anri of Astora and accept their dark sigils
  • defeat the Soul of Cinder boss in the Kiln of the First Flame
  • usurp the flame
