The Gifts Your Dark Souls Character Can Start With



From Software, perhaps showing a glint of humanity, let players start Dark Souls with a gift. You receive an item after you create an undying character, which you can read more about here.


Blessing of the Goddess – fully restores HP and clears abnormal status effects

Black Firebomb – throw to create a powerful blaze

Telescope – used to see far away objects, threats, and scenery

Pendant – it’s filled with blocked memories

Humanity’s Twin – an item you can obtain from black phantoms

All Purpose Key – use this to open doors with a simple lock

Ring of Life – wear this to increase your HP by a small amount

Ring of the Aged Witch – a ring given by a witch (usage is unclear)


I think I’ll go with the key. Doors should yield more loot, unless From Software is rigging them with electric bucket booby traps. (That’s a Spy vs. Spy reference.)
