Reinforce the Estus Flask to the highest level.

Guide Created By ~ Griffin

Here is the Dark Souls III Ultimate Estus Trophy Guide
In order to reinforce an 
Estus Flask, you will need to acquire Estus Shards which can be found throughout the Lordran
There are a total of 11 estus shards to be found giving you a 15 uses of Estus for each bonfire you rest at.
These will work with either the 
Estus Flask or the Ashen Estus Flask restoring either your HP or FP for a given amount
Once you have collected an Estus Shard, take it to Andre the Blacksmith and select the option, Reinforce Estus Flask
Here is where you can find all
11 Estus Shards in the order you can find them

Estus Shard 1

Cemetery of Ash, Firelink Shrine bonfire
From the main bonfire, head up the stairs to the left and go outside, here there is a tree you can run up then jump across to the adjacent roof. Head down the rooftop and in through the doorway on your right
In here, go to the middle of the rafters, head left to find the Estus Shard
Please Note ~ If you are unable to make the jump from the tree, come back to Firelink Shrine and purchase the Tower Key from the Shrine Maiden for 20,000 souls, allowing you to ascend the Tower where you can drop off of the bridge on to the rooftop then follow the steps above

Estus Shard 2

High Wall of Lothric, Tower on the Wall bonfire
Head down 2 levels then make your way outside and across the rooftops, go down the ladder and into the building with the Lothric Knight, proceed forward and down to the area with the large Hollows and the 2 Hounds
On the anvil to the right of the room is the Estus Shard

Estus Shard 3

Undead Settlement, Undead Settlement bonfire

Estus Shard 4

Road of Sacrifices, Crucifixion Woods bonfire
Stay to the edge of the shore going down through the passageway next to the building that takes you to the Crystal Sage.

Estus Shard 5

Estus Shard 6

Cathedral of the Deep, Cleansing Chapel bonfire

Estus Shard 7

Catacombs of Carthus, Old King’s Antechamber bonfire
