Plumes in Death's Gambit: Afterlife is a piece of special equipment, initially, it's main use is to restore Sorun's health. However, as you progress throughout the game, you will acquire different kinds of plumes that grants higher values of health recovery, as well as temporary buffs. Plumes can be found across various areas, it can be purchased from certain NPCs, and are found inside special Golden or Red chests. This page covers a list of all the Plumes featured in Death's Gambit: Afterlife.

How do Plumes Work?

Plumes are mainly used to recover missing health of Sorun, it is vital and a must that the player equip this since it is the main source of restoring HP apart from a consumable item, Leaf of Gaia. Resting at a Death Idol recovers the current number of Plumes that you are holding. Upon death, you drop a Plume at the location of the last spot where you died.

You can always run back to where you died (if you remember) and recover the dropped, however, you can always sacrifice a certain number of Soul Shards when you rest at a Death Idol to reclaim the lost Plume. But take note, that the number of Soul Shards required increases each time you use to reclaim it via a Death Idol. You do not lose the type of Plume you have in your inventory, but instead, drop one plume, reducing the current number of Plumes held.

Augmenting Plumes

Apart from reclaiming lost Plumes from dying, you can also Augment your Plumes at a Death Idol. This takes out a number of Plumes you are holding and applies it as a buff that increases your damage. The value depends on the number of plumes you decide to augment. There are a total of 10 plume upgrades that are scattered across the map that increases the number of Plumes that can be held.  Augments can be removed by returning to the statue and decreasing the number of augments until your damage percentage is back to 100%.

          It’s possible to get an additional Great Phoenix Plume by attacking the Flying Phoenix in Gaian’s Cradle. Standing on the left edge of the first platform to get the fireball treatment from above, its possible to stand on the left edge and avoid the fire. Using the halberd or scythe’s jumping slash and a couple shots from the bow per pass to whittle at his health bar. After its HP gets to about half or a little under he’ll fly away and drop the plume. Its tedious but an easy way to get a great plume early on.

            I seem to have found all the different types of plumes but I’m having a hell of time trying to find the last plume upgrade. Been looking for hours :(
