I was wondering if, when a BA is used, does it cause any possible BA in the area to respawn? If so, would it be worthwhile to farm BAs in this manner?

  • Items on bodies will respawn. I'm not sure about chests because I've seen it both ways, it may just dependend on the chest. Jan 17, 2015 at 20:06
  • @slow_excellence wooden chest items re spawn, metal chests don't.

As far as the wiki goes you can. Everything will resporn except of iron Chests so if you know where to find a BA on the ground or in a wooden Chest it will resporn.

Burning a Bonfire Ascetic also respawns the items found in the area and respawn wooden chests and corpses BUT not iron chests. -wiki http://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Bonfire+Ascetic

And you need a location that has more than 1 BA so that its actually possible to farm them.

3 can be found in an iron chest in Drangleic Castle after the Looking Glass Knight fight near the elevators leading down into the Shrine of Amana.

2 can be found in an iron chest in Aldia's Keep up the stairs in the main hall with the skeletal dragon.

3 can be found in an iron chest in Dragon Shrine near the entrance.

3 can be found in an iron chest in Memory of Orro by rolling on to the suspended platform after destroying the crane contraption on the rooftop and then jumping into the hidden area.

3 can be found on a corpse in Cave of the Dead in the main area after dropping down one of the holes.

So as far as I see the only possible way is the 3 after LookingGlassKnight and the Corpse in Cave of the Dead
