Gifts are items that a player can choose from to begin the game with. All gifts are obtainable through the game. Many of the items have a limited number of uses, but some are key items that may be obtained through alternate means later in the game.
|Binoculars||Binoculars. Use to peer at faraway sights.
Not recommended because it can be found in the graveyard of the Firelink Shrine, the starting area.
|Black Firebomb||Explodes upon impact when thrown. More deadly than a standard firebomb.
If chosen, you start with 10 black firebombs.
This gift is usually chosen for the purpose of obtaining the Demon's Great Hammer at the start of the game.
|Divine blessing||Divine holy water. Fully restores HP and removes negative status effects.
Can be found in various places and sold by several merchants in the game. Doesn't remove Cursed status.
|Master Key||Opens any basic lock. Initial equipment for a Thief.
Opens a few shortcuts to access powerful items early in the game, may also let you skip certain areas.
Not recommended for beginners that want to experience intended play.
The key can be obtained from Domhnall of Zena after he relocates to under the bridge at Firelink Shrine, after ringing both Bells of Awakening.
|Old Witch's Ring||Gift from a witch.
Enables you to talk to Quelaag's Sister. This is just story dialogue and has nothing to do with accessing the Chaos Servant covenant.
This ring can also be obtained by trading Sunlight Maggot with Snuggly the Crow.
|Pendant||Trinket. No effect, but fond memories comfort travelers.
Used to trade with Snuggly the Crow for Souvenir of Reprisal.
Can be obtained by following Rhea of Thorolund's storyline and has a rare chance of being given after killing a human after being summoned by Alvina (with Cat Covenant Ring) as a member of the Forest Hunter covenant.
|Tiny Being's Ring||Special tribal ring.
Grants 5% maximum HP boost. The Gift menu during character creation erroneously claims that it recovers HP.
The Ring of Favor and Protection, as well as Havel's Ring if you pick the Master Key, are both accessible early-game with far greater benefits.
Given as a reward from Siegmeyer of Catarina in Anor Londo.
|Twin Humanities||Tiny sprite called humanity. Sometimes found on carcasses.
Can be found in the Undead Burg and used by the player (to become human and kindle bonfires) or traded with Snuggly the Crow.
- Master Key: The single most important gift for advanced players as it allows for massive sequence breaking, gaining access to advanced items and NPC services early in the game, even skipping entire area and bosses. See its page for details.
