Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot
Temporarily boosts item discovery (+50)
Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot is a Consumable Item in Elden Ring. Most Consumables grant various effects such as restorative properties for recovering HP, removing certain negative status effects or applying temporary buffs and debuffs, while others can be thrown at enemies to deal damage. When used, the foot increases Discovery by 50 for 3 minutes. The effect is not removed when resting at a site of grace, however the effect will be removed upon dying or using fast travel.
Four-toed foot of a fowl, pickled in a silvery medicinal solution.
Temporarily boosts item discovery.
Since old times, the needy would scrape the meat clean even from a fowl's claw.

Yes, let's waste even more time farming these idiotic things. Doing the same tedious thing over and over again is so much fun isn't it? Get a grip Miyazaki ffs.
considering most *rare* items are gacha level of drop rate, the buff should remain after fast travel
Base ring +25 discovery - somewhere in Liurnia. +1 ring +45 discovery - somewhere in Leyendell/Caelid. +2 ring where the actual one is. Fixed your damn game for you. Quite simple really. Keep your goddam turkey shoot.
I've killed enough birds for these to put the avian population of the lands between on an endangered species list
We heard you hate farming, so now we made it so you gotta farm before you can farm. Game of the Year!
It doesn't seem like these last for 3 minutes anymore. I can't get through a full run of the Albanuric farm before the boost runs out anymore. I used to be able to to do the run almost twice before it finished
So you're telling me eating this abomination will give me more drops? Makes no sense, I bet someone just spread some false rumour for sh!ts and giggles in land between with no real proof.
"hey tarnish eat this for better drops (hehe)
*visibly holding down a laughter"
Discovery 248, took me ~50 tries to get one just for reference.
Not sure what caused it, but while I was farming the greataxe skeleton next to Church of the Plague, after I popped one of these my Physik flask used the same animation. Might have some utility by reducing the amount of time using Physik on speedruns if it is reproducible.
If you could just buy these infinitely, they'd be A LOT more useful. As it stands now, you have to waste time farming ingredients to craft these, then when you're trying to get the item you actually want, you waste even more time running back to a grace site to keep the buff active, rather than teleporting back, or using the Memory of Grace. Maybe it has some utility farming a particularly tanky enemy type, but for the most part, this seems like a noob trap.
I swear I get less drops when I use these lol
Resetting when you teleport makes these completely useless for farming rare drops. What a stupid design decision
i need this buffed
or a stronger version like in ds3 rusted coin and gold coin
There are 2 south of stranded graveyard, on a ledge you drop down to
Managed to drop 2 of them within 15 minute of farming 3 skeletons near Liurnia. Discovery 258 (scarab+silver tear mask and 82 arcane).
In the mimic tear boss fights, if you have this on your bar, the mimic will pop them like it's candy all through the fight. But so will your summon so make sure to pull them off when summoning
I've seen my Mimic Tear eat one of these when it's in my equipment bar. Does it work for the summon as well?
Impassable Great-bridge grace point is best. Guillemots (PENGUINS!!) drop Four-Toed Fowl Feet at a much higher rate than Eagles, and there you have 3x Guillemots right next to a grace (SE on the other side of a tree). Literally 20' from the grace. Use an AoE spell (I use dragonfire or equivalent, target the middle bird and one shot all 3...), and you can easily kill/farm them 10+ times for using one silver pickled foot. I am only light in arcane (36 w/ gear) and I net 10+ feet per usage of one, plus easily 20-30 pinions per run that takes ~5min.
The Wiki is wrong about where to find the recipe. The recipe is at the Smoldering Church on the road from Limgrave to Caelid.
Best spot I've found to farm the four-toed fowl feet is at the Below The Well Site of Grace in the Siofra River. There are 6 birds right by the SOG and I found that using the Silver-PIckled Fowl Foot, I was able to get back at least 3 feet for every one I used.
I'm new to the souls games so forgive my ignorance, but does anyone know if these stack? I'm assuming they don't, because you could just take 10 of them and farm whatever you wanted, but I am a little curious and was hoping someone could answer my question without me having to test out my theory. Thanks!
Did some testing, this is about 30% more drops. I'll post my notes below if you're interested
BEST RUNS OUT OF 50 (10 sets of 5 runs)
19 in 5:27 no feet, teleport
25 in 7:17 feet, no teleport (30 second run from birds to bonfire) uses 2 silver feet per run
(TELEPORT) 60 / 5.3 = 11 runs an hour (19 each run)
(PICKLED FEET, RUNNING) 60 / 7.20 = 8 runs an hour (25 each run)
209 feet per hour with teleport
200 - 16 silver feet = 184 feet per hour with pickled feet and running
I think pickled feet would be better if you found a faster way to loot all the birds, looting takes a lot of time out of the run.
TIME FOR PICKLED FEET / RUNNING
10-15 seconds to get there
13-16 seconds to kill
20-24 seconds to loot on average
30 second trip back (got this pretty min-maxed, dont think its gonna get faster unless i find a really nice cliff climb)
5 second to rest at bonfire and reset
1.5 min /r estimated min-maxed time = 40 runs per hour
TIME FOR TELEPORT
10-15 seconds to get there
13-16 seconds to kill
20-24 seconds to loot
7 seconds to teleport and load (actually surprised, thought it would be slower, but its pretty fast.)
1 min /r estimated min-max time = 60 runs per hour
So on paper, 30% more drops from pickled feet SHOULD lose to teleporting, just based on the math, and it does seem to look that way in testing, too.
Conclussion : small sample size of 10 x 5, or 50 runs each, but it looks like silver-pickled feet are pretty accurate to 30% more drops
pickled feet run can save lots of time if you figure out how to loot faster, and if I can figure out a sick cliff climb, otherwise pretty set.
Unforunately its very prone to mistakes because looting is cancer on horse, especially with messages from other players, putting (DOG) every single god damn bird.
3 minute buff just like the Wondrous Physick buffs. +50 to item discovery. Buff is removed if you fast travel, or die.
I think the buff might also disable farming itself because I tried popping one to farm the feet and all I got were pinons. Then I did a run without the buff and I got a foot like every other bird.
Makes me hungry seeing my dude bite into one. Reminds me of the white vinegared chicken feet you get at dim sum restaurants. Wonder if that's the inspiration for this consumable.
This isn't that great for farming because if you fast travel you lose the buff :(
Did some testing. Buff lasts for 3 minutes. Gives you a flat +50 to item discovery.
Buff is lost if you fast-travel back to site of grace
the four toed foots drops common by the birds near where you get the duelists furled finger north of war master shack
Possible bug: item discovery actually lowered by consumable. As I ate one and nothing was dropping even common loot
