      We should tell Fromsoft to add string as a purchasable item In the community feedback page. Its lame to have to farm for a 5% drop rate item to craft consumables that are quickly consumed

        You can buy enough explosives to make Michael Bay blush at mount gelmir but apparently buying string is asking for to much

        • How to use rope bombs and drawstring grease. Step 1, farm demi-humans. Step 2, keep farming demi-humans. Step 3, you've exhausted all your string in PvP, go back to farming demi-humans. Repeat steps 1-3 several times. Step 4, get sick of farming string, dupe it with a friend/alt or spawn it in.

            should make completing boc's questline allow us to purchase string from him, currently his questline reward is a bit underwhelming

              So no ones has mentioned site of grace SEASIDE RUINS I'm level 1 used glinstone arc and in 10 minutes I was able to get about 14 strings.....as soon as you touch the grace head south east and you'll see demihumans fighting through a Flintstone arc and you'll have most killed then head towards the coast and another 8 demi humans are there easy 1 hit kills no matter what level your at get a staff and magic thats it

                It's a ****ing string, Miyazaki. A ****ING STRING. I shouldn't have to spend ten minutes farming just to get two goddamn pieces of rope I could buy cheap at any local walmart.

                  What's funny is my first hours I spent all my time killing the demihumans on the coast and wound up with a butt ton of string, but no way tonuse it. I was like "oh for ****s sake what am I supposed to do with these"

                    Most unnecessarily rare item of all time. Rope fire bombs were a super useful tool in PvP in Dark Souls 3, by far my most used tool. In this game they're almost impossible to get, in two playthroughs I have acquired enough string to make a staggering 17 rope fire pots. Just make this stuff buyable with runes.

                      I dont see it here, but right at the top of the moutain near the pulley crossbow, the little hooded monké fellas seem to have a pretty good drop rate and theres a few of them

                        Why did they have to lock firebombs behind farming for shitty items atleast make it available from a merchant

                          Literally almost every armor has some sort of fabric on it plus bows are everywhere yet "not a one" merchant sells strings... #thelandsbetween

                            It's easiest to farm these in the Volcano Cave using the Starscourge Greatsword or the Gravitas Ash or War. You can get 5 Demi-Humans per run

                              Congratulations From. You made drawstring greases and roped pots unusable by making the primary ingredient rare.

                                Fort Haight West has at least 7 Demi in one location. Idk all the numbers but I tend to get 1 drop of string on each farm. Discovery at 250

                                  Almost done with my 2nd NG and I have 69 string. Never once used it to craft. However the EXCEEDINGLY RARE Trinas Lily and Miquellas Lily I have 185 and 142 also never used them to craft. From Im gonna need a bell bearing for string.

                                    It'd be so easy to patch in a couple extra bell bearing hunters for stuff like large glintstone scraps, string, etc. No idea why relatively basic items should require hours of farming.

                                      It boggles my mind why they made it so that cracked pots are not consumed upon using an item, but strings somehow are. In what world is it easier to reuse a pot that's literally been shattered into dozens of pieces than a piece of string that isn't even destroyed at all?

                                      • After seeing many comments about how low the string drop rate was I wanted to see if it was worth farming at all for roped pots. All kills were done with 274 item discovery, 99 arcane and the talisman on a magic casting build with 15 vigor, lvl 160, all were easily done.

                                        Medium-sized demi-humans in volcano cave, 5 are very close to the grace.
                                        1000 kills, 132 string, 13.2% drop rate

                                        You can kill 1000 of them in about an hour it's very quick and easy. Not an incredible drop rate, but very doable with minimal effort.

                                          is there really no easy way to get this but farming undead? Seems weird considering how abundant other crafting materials are.

                                            Since no one has mentioned it, first room of Volcano Cave has a pack of 5 demi-humans closely bunched up. No idea if it's the best spot but it seems a lot better than Coastal Cave to me.

                                              The drop chance on these is so ridiculously low and without a place to sell it.... well, roped bombs are a specialty weapon now.

                                                Having such a low drop rate and no way to buy these is just insane. The consumables its used for are burned through quickly so it discourages me from even using them at all because I'll quickly run out with no way to replenish other than farming for hours.

                                                  Do only Demi-humans posses string because they keep stealing it from everyone else, or is twining thread more difficult than forging armaments?
