Pickle Pee, Pump-a-rum!
Dark Souls 3: Snuggly the Crow trading guide
Rare Dark Souls 3 loot is available via trade with a semi-secret NPC. There’s a crow’s nest on the roof of Firelink Shrine, accessible after obtaining the tower key. Visit this nest and you can trade in some of your gear.
Snuggly the Crow doesn’t offer much guidance in the way of what it accepts (“That no pickle pee! That no pump-a-rum!”), but we’ve got the full list of available trades here. The list shows the item you receive, followed by what you’ll need in order to obtain it. In some case the items you’re trading away are also quite rare, so we’ve provided guidance on how to obtain them.
To trade an item, stand in the nest, highlight an item in your inventory and select “leave”. Confirm the quantity (just one) and as soon as the menu closes, the trade will be complete – provided Snuggly accepts the item. You must pick the item up immediately; if you leave the area it will vanish forever.
You can only perform each trade once per playthrough. If your item is rejected, you can just pick it back up again.
The first time you trade with Snuggly, you’ll receive the Call Over emote.
