In addition to Dark Souls 3 Estus Flask Upgrade Shards, there are a total of 10 Dark Souls 3 Bone Shards as well.

Bone Shards in Dark Souls 3 are required to upgrade the Estus Flask and to obtain the Ultimate Bonfire Trophy or Achievement.

Once upgraded with Dark Souls 3 Bone Shards, the Estus Flask in the game will replenish more HP with each use which is huge in a game like Dark Souls 3 which is why it is a good idea to get them as soon as possible.

Dark Souls 3 Bone Shards Locations Guide

Similar to Dark Souls 3 Estus Flask Upgrade Shards, none of the Bone Shards in the game are miss-able and can be obtained after completely beating the game.

In order to upgrade the Estus Flask in the game, you need to get your hands on a Bone Shard and head over to Dark Souls 3 Firelink Shrine. Once there, you simply need to burn the Bone Shard in the Firelink Shrine Bonfire.

This guide details the locations of all 10 Dark Souls 3 Bone Shards:
