The fragments can be found in the following areas:
- Forlorn Monastery - keep going right after defeating Pardoner Fennel
- Subterranean Grave - keep going left after defeating Derelict Frida
- Cinder Chambers - keep going right to reach the room with the item after defeating Heretical Arsonist
- Frore Ciele - play through the area normally
In addition, the crest fragments grant to the player extra abilities once collected, such as:
- New bow charge level (Forlorn Monastery)
- Charge arrows faster (Subterranean Grave)
- Dodge mid-air (Cinder Chambers)
- Warp when praying (Frore Ciele)
All the crest fragments have the same description:
"Fraction of an emblem representing the current Karstian regime.
