    The following is a list of equipment requiring boss souls. You need to upgrade a weapon to +10. This must be done with Andre, the Undead Parish blacksmith, he is the only blacksmith who can ascend ("Modify Equipment" in the blacksmith menu) weapons to +6.

    ____________________________________________________________

    The following list requires tails to be cut off of the respective bosses. These are a one time chance (the exception being the gargoyles, two more will appear at Anor Londo but they do not respawn) so make sure you cut the tail off before you kill the boss! If you find the boss is about to die quit and reload your game.

    Hellkite Drake:
    - Drake Sword
    Gaping Dragon:
    - Dragon King Greataxe
    Everlasting Dragon:
    - Dragon Greatsword
    Crossbreed Priscilla:
    - Priscilla's Dagger (Attack her tail first! She gives you a free hit, cast Great Chaos Fireball on it if you use pyromancy - it will most likely come off straight away if you do)
    Seath the Scaleless:
    - Moonlight Greatsword (a useful tip is to run to Seath's crystal and wait for him to ready his attack and get out of the way. He'll break his own crystal and be stunned for a long time.)
    ____________________________________________________________

    The following weapons are obtained from joining the respective covenants.

    Gravelord Servant:
    - Gravelord Sword
    Darkwraith:
    - Dark Hand
    As of patch 1.05, Dark Wraith enemies in the New Londo Ruins also have a chance of dropping the Dark Hand.
    ____________________________________________________________

    The rest of these weapons are obtained from enemy, phantom and boss drops.

    - Black Knight Sword
    - Black Knight Greatsword
    - Black Knight Greataxe
    - Black Knight Halberd
    - Black Knight Shield
    All Black Knight weapons are dropped from their respective Black Knights. If you miss any, there are respawnable ones in the Kiln of the First Flame

    - Channeler's Trident
    Dropped by the Six-Eyed Channelers. Non-respawning ones appear in the second floor of the undead church and the depths. There are 3 respawning ones in the Duke's Archives.

    - Crescent Axe
    Sold by Patches for 10,000 souls but can also be dropped by Patches upon killing him.

    - Crest Shield
    Dropped by Knight of Astora, Oscar upon your return to the Northern Undead Asylum. Encounter him in the same place as you did last time (he is the knight that gave you the Estus Flask).

    - Silver Knight Straight Sword
    - Silver Knight Spear
    - Silver Knight Shield
    Just like Black Knights, the weapons drop from their respective Silver Knights. They all respawn in Anor Londo.

    - Stone Greatsword
    - Stone Greatshield
    Dropped by the Stone Guardians in the Darkroot Garden. Stone Greatsword can also be bought from Shiva of the East.

    - Giant's Halberd
    - Giant Shield
    Bought from the Giant Blacksmith or dropped by the giant sentinel enemies in Anor Londo.

    - Grant
    - Sanctus
    This weapon and shield are dropped by Paladin Leeroy, an NPC phantom invader in the Tomb of the Giants. He appears outside the entrance of Nito's cave, where you can see Ash Lake (Big hole showing a lake and giant archtrees). You must be human. Try not to let him fall off the cliff and lure him into the cave a bit where the crystal lizard is.

    - Astora's Straight Sword
    Picked up in the Valley of the Drakes, in front of the dragon corpse.

    - Dragon Crest Shield
    Same place as the Astora's Straight Sword.

    - Dragonslayer Greatbow
    Picked up in Anor Londo. On the upper floor of the cathedral (the large hall with the two Giant Knights and a Black Knight archer) there should be a broken section of the stained glass. Fall through and you'll end up in an area with a corpse containing the bow and some arrows.

    - Dragon Tooth
    - Havel's Greatshield
    Found in chests in Anor Londo. Located behind an illusory wall disguised as a fireplace. The rest of Havel's gear can be found in the same room. Be careful, one of the chests is a Mimic.

    - Bloodshield
    Found on a corpse in the Painted World of Ariamis. On the bridge occupied by the undead dragon. You can either grab it and run back before the dragon reaches you, or kill it and grab the shield afterwards.

    - Effigy Shield
    Found in Tomb of the Giants. Located at the end of a narrow walkway, through an arch and guarded by a Black Knight. You'll be able to see it from afar. Be careful not to fall off the side!

    - Black Iron Greatshield
    Found in Anor Londo with the rest of the Black Iron set. In the huge room with the chandelier and entrance to the Painted World of Ariamis.

    - Velka's Rapier
    Found in the Painted World of Ariamis. After opening up the annex using the Annex Key, there is a shoddy looking barrier made of wood. Hit it with any weapon and it will break, leading to a corpse containing this weapon.

    - Izalith Catalyst
    Dropped by a pyromancer chaos witch in Lost Izalith. She appears right before the white fog leading to the boss. This is the same place that Kirk, Knight of Thorns will invade you.

    - Demon's Catalyst
    Dropped by the Demon Firesage in the Demon Ruins.


    It is commonly cited that you need the Ghost Blade and the Jagged Ghost Blade dropped by the New Londo ghosts and Titanite Catch Pole for this achievement. You do NOT. The achievement will unlock with these weapons absent from your inventory.

    PlusATHEYLike with the remaster it seems that you can summon someone in, they can drop the weapons for you and you pick them up, pop the achievement and drop them all back.

    One thing I noticed, not all the items need to be in your inventory to get the achievement. Case in point, I had (at one point) the Gravelord Sword, Effigy Sheild and Dragon Bone fist in my collection, but when the achievement popped all 3 were absent from being given to other players. So I can't speak to it too much, but the items on the lists are mostly correct, but they do not all need to be held at once. It would seem once you aquire them you can sell them off or whatever and the game will retain a mental image of the weapon on your list.

    Vengeful Voidi have all weapons but i dont get it cry

    LookItsPineapplI would try clearing the system cache because sometimes that'll do it, then do another serious look at the list of weapons vs what you have (and things you may have given away or traded), it's very easy to miss one or two essential pieces.
    Posted by LookItsPineappl on 13 Jul 14 at 15:38
    LookItsPineapplAlso just to point out how frustrating it CAN be, this was the last achievement I got before the final one popped, and many times I thought I had all the weapons, so I feel your pain.
