Dark Souls 2 Human Effigies

Human Effigies in Dark Souls 2 are exactly like Humanity from Dark Souls I except the fact that Effigies can be used anywhere. Furthermore, Human Effigies also remove any restriction in increasing the Max. HP which is often caused by dying too many times while being ‘Hollowed’.

And lastly, Human Effigies can also be thrown in the Bonfires to disable all sort of multiplayer interactions for an hour.

Below, you will find some known locations of Human Effigies:

  • After beginning the game, you will receive one Human Effigy as a gift.
  • Head over to the Seer’s Hut and head to the upper floor. There will be a chest there with an Effigy in it.
  • Merchant Hag Melentia will have five of them.
  • Attack Dogs near the second Blacksmith randomly drop them. It can be increased by wearing Explorer’s Hat.
  • Soon after creating your character, get back to the Old Fire’s Keepers and kill them all to receive about 10 Effigies.
  • The last one can be found lying on a Molten Rock in the Iron Keep (near the first Bonfire).

Shrine of Amara
In the Shrine of Amara, there is an altar and praying on it regains your humanity instantly. Near the last Bonfire (directly above it), there will be a shrine with a praying Milfinito.

Before heading there, you must rescue the two wandering maids: one will be outside Demon of Song room and the other will be behind the Embedded Door in the Drangleic Castle. You can pray on this shrine infinite number of times without spending a single soul.

And lastly, you must not have a very high sin level, any effigy in your Inventory Box, and you must be in hollowed state.
