      This is the lamest and hardest to farm.. Even more so than blade stone. At least the blade stone drops!!! An hour of farming rock worms on pbwt and I only got 2 chunks, it's ridiculous.

      They should've allowed you to buy them or at least put 20 or 30 shards into a chunk I have 4 freaking stacks of x99 shards. I just gave up. Guess you can't play a strength build unless you want to bonk!

        It would be less painful to bang my head against a wall until I pass out than to farm enough greystone to get a single max weapon. I'll stick with DBS

          I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking how bullshit Greystone and Bladestone farming are. Also, I really think using a Meltstone should give you at least SOME of the materials back. Yeah, all would be nice, but it really sucks realizing you've been upgrading an inferior weapon and now all that Greystone farming went to waste. Have them in some crystal lizard drops or something ffs!!! So tired farming to get a single Str weapon at max.

            What is the minimum regular weapon upgrade to perform this path? I assumed +3 but I couldn't enhance a Mace through this path.

              I got a greystone chunk every 5.5 minutes on average with this strat:

              Sword of searching
              wand with soul arrow
              providential ring
              eternal warrior ring
              (10 magic, 7 luck)

              Just spawn at the flamelurker Archstone, run back and kill the three worms beyond the tunnel and the three inside the tunnel where you originally drop to. Aim for their heads as it's a one shot. Return to Archstone and reload.

                Why there are blue effects in the Remake Greystone? Oh wait i get it, it's because the Remake is made by Bluepoint XD

                  Copied from the Upgrades page:

                  Crushing Upgrades
                  Upgrade weapons with the Crushing path from +1 to a max level of +5. Forge weapons with the Greystone that provides STR bonus but at the same time, it removes any DEX bonus.

                    they couldnt make it drop from lizards or something? that you cant fully upgrade a weapon without farming is ridiculous, things like that really show that this is the first game in the series. DS3 isnt my favorite, but at least you could buy chunks and special materials infinitely.

                      The best place to farm chucks and shards is before the Flamelurker archstone. The three fire sprouting Rock Worms are guaranteed to drop at least shards.
