Rose of Ariandel – Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel
The Rose of Ariandel is one of the new weapons you can acquire in the DLC. Before you can get it, first you have to defeat Sister Friede, who is one of the bosses available in the new content. Once you’ve done that, you’ll get her soul item and you can present it to Ludleth back at Firelink Shrine to turn it into the Rose of Ariandel. You also have the option of turning it into Friede’s Great Scythe instead.
A flail used by the bulbous Father of the Painted World to shred his own skin, producing blood to appease the flame. Both a weapon and a miracle catalyst.
Ariandel, being the restorer of the Painted World, knew that it was painted with blood, and only blood could protect the secret.
Violently flail oneself to trigger an awakening that temporarily boosts the strength of miracles, just as the good Father used the rose himself.
The Rose is a really neat-looking Catalyst, which we honestly haven’t seen too much of in Dark Souls III. It also doubles up as a whip which you can use to flail yourself. The Awakening weapon art should be a pretty nice perk for miracle users too, even if it does come at a price.
