Weapons and shields can be enhanced through the use of infusion. This allows you to add elemental damage, increase stat scaling, etc. To conduct an infusion, you must visit Blacksmith Andre in Firelink Shrine.
Before Blacksmith Andre will perform certain infusions, he must be given the correct coal to work with. There are four types of coal you need to unlock all infusions:
||Farron Coal||Used to infuse with Heavy Gems, Sharp Gems and Poison Gems.||
Can also be accessed from the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire in Farron Keep.
||Sage's Coal||Used to infuse with Crystal Gems, Blessed Gems and Deep Gems.||Found in Farron Keep. From the Farron Keep bonfire, keep to the left until you reach the tower guarded by a Darkwraith. The coal is found within the tower.|
||Profaned Coal||Used to infuse with Dark Gems, Blood Gems and Hollow Gems.||Found in Irithyll Dungeon. Found in the cell containing multiple Wretches in the lower cell block.|
||Giant's Coal||Used to infuse with Lightning Gems, Simple Gems and Chaos Gems.||Found in Anor Londo on the corpse of the Giant Blacksmith.|
