I got a drop of the vertebrae offline in the Demon Ruins of the Smoldering Lake. The drop came from one of the skeletons with red eyes and dual wielding small blades near the giant crossbow.
Just confirming I got this one too.
Thank's for the tip man! Was it the skeletons on top where the Arrow Turret is at?
The baby crows also accept them as offerings, I acquired the calling gesture as well as a helmet, spoiler:

Lucatiel's Mask
can confirm, the first skeleton to the left after the catacombs of carthus bonfire drops them, got one after about 5-7 attempts
I think you mean after the Abyss Watchers bonfire?! Like shown in the video that was linked on this page yesterday? (

I'm at 30 kills with no drop of Vertebra Shackle.
Must be bad luck? or patched?
or idk... skeleton fell off the bridge three times and I was unable to loot even after quitting the game and reloading -.-
I only seem to get a guaranteed titanite Shard with a chance for a Large titanite Shard (got 1 or 2 so far, not sure how many I had before),
Carthus Curved Swords and Carthus Shields
oh nvm, I got a Vertebra Shackle to drop, right after I got another (my first, excluding the one from Hodrick) shackle from pvp.
coincidence?! :D
Drops from skeletons with the curved blades in catacombs.
sacrifcial altar what happen when I give him the vertebra shackle
You can increase your standing with Mound-Maker covenant. It's useless if your are not into PVP. Better use it to trade with the crow.

In what way, shape or form is Warmth 'useless'?
Just curious guys, what "Item Discovery" you got guys? Base or upgraded (and if, by what means - armor, coins or plain Luck stat raising.) Thx!

My luck is at 15 with symbol of avarice and shield of want. Got a lot of sunlight medals pretty early but took work. Got 2 vertebrae shackles, one from Hodrick, one from skeleton. 30 wolf blood grass and maxed watchdogs standing I think. Even with 15 luck and the items it still takes work. I don’t mind though because I get drops to sell and souls to use. So yeah, skeletons with red eyes in catacombs, I can confirm they drop them.
With 335 item discovery (Gold serpent ring +1, Crystal Sage Rapier and Symbol of Avarice, 10 luck), I'm getting about 1-2 every 15-20 minutes from the 3 skeletons close to the Catacombs bonfire.

Ignoring that 3rd skeleton is way faster. It has to respawn to become the red-eyed variant that drops Vertebra Shackle and it's already out of the way, making your run a lot longer.
Invade smouldering lake. 50% of the time you can just sit in a quiet corner and wait for the Host to die.
are you playing in "offline" mode, or farming in online mode, because it has been an hour and half at item discovery of 345 and I haven't even seen 1

I assume you mean the two skeletons near the skeleton ball, and then the one down the left that respawns into a red-eye.
And here I am, with 474 Item Discovery, getting lucky even getting 1 every half hour. Averice, Goldy +1, Sage Rapier, and 99 luck. Seems I have no luck anyway. Not like I can get them any other way at SL190 though.
