FARMING LOCATIONS
  • Church of Elleh: Travel directly west, killing Eagles along the way, until you reach a cliff. Safely drop down onto the square-shaped ruin to find six Guillemots, then continue down the cliffs to the west to reach another square-shaped ruin with seven Eagles. Continue northwest along the beach to find more birds. Use ranged attacks to prevent them from flying away.
  • Fourth Church of Marika: Drop down to the beach northwest of the Site of Grace and use ranged attacks to kill the many Guillemots there. A single run takes around 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • Cathedral of Dragon Communion: There are three Guillemots  on a cliff just south of the site of grace, then five more a short distance west. These 8 birds can be farmed in half a minute on Torrent using a bow.
  • Redmane Castle: There are three Guillemots southeast of the "Impassable Greatbridge" Site of Grace, in a very short distance. A single run takes less than 10 seconds, and the close proximity of the Site of Grace makes using Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot to increase the droprate very viable. Using Litany of Proper Death guarantees hitting all three of them at once with single cast; any bow with Barrage skill works well too.

      So first of all: stop it with the misinformation, it is unbelievable how wrong this information here is...

      The farming location next to church of Elleh really sucks. Theres no way to safely drop down the cliff, you have to go down and then use torrent to jump over to the ruin. This takes a lot of time.
      The penguins have the same droprate for the feet as eagles as not a single one dropped the item for me.
      Oh and birds do fly away if you kill them with ranged weapons. You kill more of the with melee.

        VERY EASY FARM METHOD!

        If you have a banished knight halberd it can chain attack him

        1) Spawn at the Artists shack grace
        2) walk south and find the knight
        3) Sneak up and backstab him
        4) Keep a moderate distance and after the shield attack chain attack him with the halberd
        5) Eventually you will stun him and with crit, attack will deal 90% of the total hp

          Had a quick look through and couldn't see it mentioned. Litany of proper death is a great way to farm low hp creatures like these birds. Its especially good for uneven terrain as its reasonably fast to cast, covers a very wide area, and sticks to the ground over all the cracks and crevices where other aoe spells might just go over the top of animals. Admittedly I don't know how much damage it does if you just meet the requirements as I currently have 90 int and 41 faith and it does 210 damage, but if you have the stats to one shot them it's great lol

          • I feel like it may be a bit misleading to recommend the Fourth Church of Marika farm when the obvious one is a lot smoother and easier:
            - Impassable Greatbridge Site of Grace. 3 birds RIGHT at the SoG.
            - Pop a SPFF, equip Silver Tear Mask + Silver Scarab and a shortbow with Barrage.
            With this method you're looking at roughly 20-25 feet per use of SPFF (at 243 Discovery, 10 base arcane). That's +400 per hour.

              There are ~30 penguins down around the beach area near the coastal cave in Limgrave. If you start at the First Step site of grace, go west & you'll see a cliff above a bunch of them on a ruin. Use a small bow w/ Barrage AoW, snipe them, hop down, then go up & down the coast. There is another ruin with a bunch on it, but you have to drop down from above near the troll. I get 10-15 per sweep of the area.

              I almost posted this before reading this page. Yeah, where it says travel west from church of Elleh— it's the best farming spot I've found. But it feels like the drop rate is higher than 25% for the pengiez. Feels more like 33.3%, I wouldn't even bother with the eagles... Besides, they're endangered & it's illEAGLE.

                I found a good farming location, travel to the coastal cave grace and then leave the cave, jump on torrent and head to the right down the beach, you will start seeing penguins standing on rocks just after the big piece of ruin debris. I like this better than the weeping peninsula farm as it feels a bit closer to the grace for about the same amount of birds. The birds are everywhere just keep farming until you find the Kaiden warrior by the campfire, then its done. You can farm him too if you needs his set or sword. This and the church of dragon communion island are probably the best.

                  The beach north of 4th Church of Marika has 17 penguins. 5 of them are in the water. I use Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear, since it doesn't scare others away when using the Bloodboon Ritual skill. Just run off the nearest cliff northeast of the grace, then off the cliff to the north to land on the beach.

                    The method I like to farm them with is to use Nightmaiden's Mist since it doesn't scare them away unlike other spells or incantations. Being able to cast while on horseback is also a plus. Might also be more humane, who knows!

                      Yet more evidence of Miyazaki’s malevolence. One of the key crafting ingredients for farming is most commonly dropped by cute penguins. Goddammit, he can’t keep getting away with it!

                        The Flame of Frenzy works really well on the three at the Impassable Greatbridge. Just line them up, target the middle one and fire. It kills all three.

                          So macabre to slaughter the little one penguin but not as heartbreaking as causing extinction of Carolina Parakeet in "RDR2"

                            Best place to farm is Below the Well grace underground, I concentrate on 4 birds near it and blow them with the Rotten Breath spell, loot, and short run back to grace. I got 140 in an hour. I used silver scarab and silver mask and respec to 99 arcane for max discovery.

                              The best place to farm is the Below The Well grace which is underground. There are 6 birds near it and I concentrate on 4. I just use the Rotten Breath spell and get all 4, loot and run back to the grace. Rinse and repeat. I put on the silver scarab and the silver mask and repec to 99 arcane to get maximum discovery. I got 140 in an hour.

                              • As others have mentioned, the best place to farm these imho is indeed the beach directly north of the fourth church of marika site of grace. Crossbow recommended, but you do you. Although, be forewarned: after about five runs of killing a bunch of peaceful penguins, you may begin to feel a bit of sadge.

                                  Impassable Greatbridge, there are 3 birds that are super close to the grace. Use Gravity Stone Fan to make quick work of all 3 of them.

                                    Fun fact, if you have max arcane (giving 199 discovery), equip the silver scarab (+75 discovery), use a silver pickled fowl foot (+50 discovery for a total of 325 discovery which means 3.25 times drop rate) and kill the many Gullymots at the dragon communion island with a base 25% drop rate, you should theoretically have an 81 percent drop rate on the feet... Well worth using the silver foot and temporarily equipping silver scarab.

                                      Found a good spot to farm these:
                                      1: Go to the Impassable Greatbridge grace in southern Caelid
                                      2: Walk around the large tree next to the grace and use an AOE spell or 3 arrows to kill the 3 Guillemots
                                      3: Rest at the grace
                                      4: Rinse & Repeat

                                      Total runtime with a single casting of Rotten Breath: maybe 45 seconds...

                                        I farmed these before and after patch 1.04 at the Fourth Church of Marika and it seems post patch the drop rate for these from the Guillemot has gone way up. I used to get 2-3 a run along the beach, now it's 8-9.

                                          Best place to farm is Impassable Greatbridge. There are 3 birds literally 2 meters away from grace, behind a tree. You can oneshot all 3 with single cast of Beast Claws. Literally the fastest method ever.

                                            To add to below, 62 seconds to kill 11 at Church of Dragon Communion, which means 5,6s per Guillemot whch is better. Go immediately east to kill the 3 at the cliff, then go north following the cliff to kill 2 more, and then 3. Then head back towards the grace but go to the right close to the jellyfish (only at night), then kill the last 3 birds and return to the grace and repeat. If you don't have to worry about loading screens, it might be faster to go south, and kill more birds until you're at the endpoint when you reach the dog.

                                                I've done a small test with farming the 8 Guillemots at the Cathedral of Dragon Communion. I killed 95 of them in 9m25s at max Discovery of 324 using a bow and horse, and got 53 Four-Toed Fowl Foot. This means 1 run to kill the 8 took me around 47 seconds, which is around 6 seconds per Guillemot.

                                                  Best way to farm these is from the birds north of the fourth church of marika on the beach, equip a shortbow with barrage and arrow reach talisman and gun them all down, you can get like 7-8 per run.

                                                    Best farm spot by far is the penguin guys on the beach in Weeping Peninsula, warp to Fourth Church grace.

                                                    Best weapon: Mohgwyn’s Sacred Spear. The weapon art doesn’t scare the others away. No need to upgrade, experiment with the range to farm quickly.

I use unendurable frenzy to take out all 3, they usually don't fly away and it doesn't blow them off the Cliffside like Sacred Relic Sword can sometimes do.

                                                            Took about 15 minutes at below the well after killing 150 eagles to get one fowl foot at 110 discovery.

                                                            I get 4-7 from the guillemot at the weeping coastline per run. I had to grind for that long just to prove the Eagles drop the damn things. I dont know why they list that as a viable farm strat. Sure its conveniently close to the grace. Though I wonder if they patched and lowered the drop rates for the eagles.

                                                            It seems a 40% drop rate from the Guillemots.

                                                              Kinda wish there was a bell-bearing for these crafting materials. I figured since the bone and meat peddlers had bell-bearings for those respective materials, it would make sense for other innocent animals to have their materials accessible from, for instance, some fowl-peddler. With that in mind, I beat up all the bell-bearing hunter encounters hoping I was correct, but instead I got access to some boluses that I can already craft and some neat gravity consumables that are totally not collecting dust in my inventory. Spare the poor birds, From Software!

If you have a decent seal and stats, each bird should only take about 1 second to roast and the fire DoT won't scare the others away because you're not actively attacking

I was there half an hour and got 124 of these with only 192 discovery. Oh and i used honed bolt from horseback

Farming at Impassable Greatbridge, hop up on the rock, right in the center (not too close as to spook them), and use the ash. Kills all 3 and you rarely lose any of them off the cliff. I hear the Below the Well grace in Siofra might be better though, will have to try that next time.

                                                                                • Anonymous

I had good success with the Church of Dragon Communion grace making a ring around the cliffs on the island on torrent killing them. Honed Bolt incantation is usable on torrent quickly and oddly never scared them.

I haven't counted the eagles, but there's probably 8-15 of them on the ground.

                                                                                    Start at the grace at the top of the tower, go down the elevator (call the elevator back up at the bottom) and get yourself some toes and some stormhawk feathers (which make arrows that break poise).

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Coastal cave site of grace, go out of the cave and head north, past the orcs. There's about 15-20 Guillemots you can easily kill with Hoarfrost Stomp. They drop fowl foot a lot more than eagles.

You can find any other skill or spell that does same thing too I suppose. You can also equip Crepus's Vial to silence your footsteps to approach easier. You can even put messages to spots that you want to use skills.

You will be able to see a Guillemot behind the tree while you are at rested position of the Grace, I suggest utilizing Ashes of War Hoarfrost Stomp while locking on to the center Guillemot to slay all 3, you may lose a bird that sometimes falls off the cliff, you can sprint towards this one.

                                                                                                                Follow the beach north of the Isolated Merchant’s Shack grace site in The Weeping Peninsula and you’ll encounter 10-20 birds in <60 seconds.

Haven't tested this with the eagles on the surface yet

                                                                                                                  • When you get to fort Haight on the farming path, you can go around and into the fort and continue on the rocky outcroppings where you left off, then follow them all the way to the bridge of sacrifice on a single silver foot. I used Torrent the whole way through and used the flame of frenzy while mounted to kill packs. It works great.
