Soul of Artorias.png "Soul of Lord Gwyn's Knight Artorias, who was consumed by the Abyss.
The Legend that Artorias repelled the Abyss only told half of the story.
It seems that he was defeated, and his honor preserved, by some unsung hero, who is the true victor over the Abyss."

Obtained by: defeat Knight Artorias.

Consume: 16,000 Souls
Grants 10,000 souls when fed to Kingseeker Frampt.

Unique Weapons Made with This Soul:

Note: Besides using the Soul of Artorias to create the Abyss Greatsword, it can also be used to obtain other weapons. Exchange the soul with Lord's Blade Ciaran for the Dark Silver Tracer and Gold Tracer - she can be found in the arena where you encounter Artorias after he is defeated (it may require dying or warping for her to appear). It is worth noting that the soul does not need to be traded to get Ciaran's weapons, as she will drop them if killed, but it is one method of gaining them (also there will be placed some Lloyds talimans in front of Artorias grave in the presence when you do so, being in contrast to nothing if you trade).


Side Note: If you kill her instead of giving her the Soul Of Artorias you receve Gold & Silver Tracer plus her armor! Killing her has no other effect, good or bad in the game.
(Only on your conscience? ;))

Note: If you consume the Soul of Artorias before Ciaran appears, she will not spawn. Make sure you talk to her before consuming the Soul of Artorias. (ForHoiPolloi)
