How to make your own Dark Souls Estus Flasks


A step By Step Guide (With Pictures)

Everyone who's played Dark Souls knows how important the Estus flask is. Everyone who's played it also wants one, because it's so cool. That's why I've created this fool proof, step by step guide to help you create Estus flasks of your very own!

After you're done, you'll be able to drink out of them and pretend you're an Enkindled running around Lothric killing monsters. Let's get crackin' captain!

Step One: Buy a big case of Sunny Delight (I got mine at Costco for $10).Me holding Sunny D


Step Two: Rip it open it and set out all the bottles.Rip the plastic


Step Three: Remove the labels.I'm not a psychopath, I swear.


Step Four: Get a black Sharpie marker.Sharpie


Step Five: Smell the marker to make sure it's not dried out.Don't do this kids.


Step Six: Scrawl “ESTUS” on the sides of the bottles.I'm kinda high on fumes here


Step Six (Optional): Refrigerate the bottles.I just went to the store


Step Seven: Drink from the flask.CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!


Step Eight: SALUTE THE SUN!!!Bright sunshiny day




DO NOT write on the flask if it's just been in the refrigerator. The condensation will cause the ink to run and get all over you hands so you look like a boob.Me looking like a boob

The make-believe Estus WILL NOT heal real injuries. If you are injured, seek medical attention.I'm pretending


That concludes this fantastic guide! I had a lot of fun making it and hopefully you had fun reading it too. Now I'm off to go drink some of the Estus flasks that are taking up way too much space in my fridge. BYE!!!
