Unused Content

A text dump of the game revealed the presence of some unused content in the game's files. Additionally, certain images of unused content were found in the files of the Beyond the Bonfire/Farfire stats tracking websites.

Weapons/Shields

Image Name Description
RTPq12E.png Shadow Claws Claws used by those who lurk in the shadows. A sharp blade is attached to each of the fingers. Those who abandoned the knight's code stooped to all manner of unspeakable deeds, all for a bit of coin.
HLevwi6.png N/A A potential Caestus re-skin that might be made available at a future date
xRAbyie.png N/A A potential Greataxe re-skin that might be made available at a future date
Pj1n0Su.png N/A A potential Rapier re-skin that might be made available at a future date
zBNQob7.png N/A A wooden shield icon and model. Video Demonstration
Ro7fMep.png N/A Dark Sword Icon and Model from Dark Souls 1 and it is classified as Greatsword. Video Demonstration.
NAUXZop.png N/A Blue Flowery Club Icon and Model. Video Demonstration.
NOoPByL.png N/A Blacksmithing Tongs Icon and Model. Video Demonstration.
VIS0sgj.png N/A Item has no description.
No Image Dragonknight's Bell Item has no description.
No Image Bell of the Idol Item has no description.
No Image Imperial Shield Item has no description.
No Image Inquisitor's Blade Katana used by the inquisitors. Though there is no secret to the manner of its forging, the katana's hefty blade glistens with extraordinary sharpness. Perhaps its great weight portends to the great washes of blood it has supped upon.

Note that the reskinned weapons above were added into the game's files during Patch Version 1.06. The chest in the Majula Mansion basement has made other reskins available in the past through calibrations updates, so it's possible the above items will be similarly available at some point in the future.

Armors

Image Name Description
eg1j5wE.png Barrel A large barrel. One can wear this barrel, but it conceals the arms, making movement very difficult. The barrel is oddly comforting, however, and gradually restores HP, perhaps an effect of the strange crest painted upon it.
YqXoc1r.png Rosabeth's Dress A terribly worn dress. Belonged to Rosabeth of Melfia. Rosabeth adored this dress, despite the fact it has no bearing on pyromancy. If it suits your fancy, by all means, try it on.
4ixHBM4.png" Hunter's Hat A commonplace leather hat with a feather. Traditionally used by bow hunters. The wildfowl Coco was ever-loyal to the goddess Evlana, and hunters place its feathers in their caps in hopes of receiving the divine protection of the famed bird. (This is a different item than the in-game hunter's hat)
a46oNCh.png N/A No description available.

dXBA80b.png Ring of War Unused Ring from Network Test

Ivory Warrior Ring uses this icon now.

Though the ring's properties are a great boon to warriors, few were happy to accept the ring, as it also meant that the wearer would be sent out to die on the front lines.

N/A Illusory Talisman Transform into a phantom A tiny charm embedded with imitative magic. Use to transform into a phantom. Use this talisman to trick invaders. Only provides the most superficial camouflage, but for those naïve enough to never question what they see, you should be very convincing.

Originally "Dragonknight Set" (Dragonknight Helm, Dragonknight Robes, Dragonknight Gloves & Dragonknight Boots).

Network Test version

Helmet/ Robes/ Gloves/ Boots worn by the Silverdrake Knights of Lindeldt.

Though little is truly known about the order, it is said that their well-honed miracles
and unwavering loyalty in the face of death made Lindelt worthy rivals to Drangleic in their day.

Final game version

Helm/ Robes/ Gloves/ Boots of the Archdrake sect of Lindelt.

Little is known about the Archdrake sect
and its ancient rituals, but it is said that their
well-honed miracles and unwavering faith
in the face of death made them worthy
rivals to Drangleic's forces in their day.
