Boss Soul Weapons


Boss Soul weapons are weapons which can be crafted from the souls that are dropped by some bosses throghout the game. There are multiple weapons which can be constructed from the souls (usually two). You can also consume the Boss Souls if you wish, but they are best reserved for the construction of these unique weapons - especially if you are going for the associated achievement/trophy.

The Process


To construct a Boss Soul Weapon you must do the following:
  1. Start with the base weapon type that's specified below and then upgrade it to +5 with Titanite Shards by using a blacksmith such as Blacksmith Andrei in the Undead Parish.
  2. Upgrade the weapon further to +10 using Large Titanite Shards. To do this you must first give the Large Ember (found in The Depths) to Andre or another suitable blacksmith such as the giant in Anor Londo.
  3. Ascend the weapon by using the giant blacksmith in Anor Londo, 5,000 souls and the boss soul to then create the Boss Soul Weapon.
  4. You can then upgrade this weapon further by using Demon Titanite to a total of +5.
