    To create a Crystal Weapon from scratch you need to begin with a standard weapon ( one that you can appply pine resin to otherwise it is unique and will not work )

    First you will need the Crystal Ember which is found in Duke's Archive (See vid for the location,credit to Marce1024 for the vid) which you then give to The Giant Blacksmith which is in Anor Londo (which is after Sen's Fortress) this will allow you to access the Crystal weapons.

    In order complete the Crystal weapon you will ultimately require 9 Titanite shards , 9 Large Titanite shards , 9 Chunks of Titanite and 1 Titanite Slab

    Titanite Chunk - 100% drop rate off the first and third Black Knight in Kiln of the First Flame. These enemies do respawn

    Titanite Slab - is a VERY rare drop off Darkwraiths in
    New Londo Ruins and also a 100% drop off of the Stray demon in the Undead Asylum (tutorial area) underneath the place you fought the Asylum Demon (first boss about 2 min into the game). The asylum can be revisited via the massive crow who you can see at Firelink Shrine who brought there in the beginning of the game.

    Here is a Chart which was created by an unknown so credit to whoever they are.

    TRICK-To get the achievement without using your items simply fully upgrade the item in one shot and wait until the achievement pops WITHOUT leaving the upgrade window thus not allowing the game to save the data then simply turn off the game and turn back on.

    darkx1r0is it possible to get the achievment with an already upgraded drop item (for example crystal sword) and just upgrade it to +5.. or is it required to upgrade from the basic weapon the whole way up?

    NINja277not required to use basic all the way up as far as I know but to my knowledge the crystal sword ( I think you mean the one you buy off the guy in the sewer) is not actually crystal enchanted, I could be wrong on this though.

    I guess you will know the second you try to upgrade it to +1 Crystal, PLease lemme know what you find so I may update the solution.

    CyberneticHFXTo ninja277: Yes, you are right - these crystal weapons the other person is talking about, are not helpful to work on this Achievement's requirement process. These can not even be upgraded - these can not even be repaired - these also do not have forge type specific icons displayed to the right of their pictures. But indeed, a Crystal Halberd which can be simply found, is useful for this weapon upgrading task.

    There is an Crystal Helebard that can be upgraded without the need of the Crystal Ember and also needs much less because its already crystal, it is located in the Room right after the first bonfire in Anor Londo in the Mimic Chest to the right and is guarded by two Big Knights.
