    To create a Magic 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 )

    Then you will need to acquire the Large Magic Ember which is found in the Duke's Archives and give this to Rickert of Vinheim who will then allow you to upgrade from +5 Magic to +10. Rickert of Vinheim can make Magic weapons to +5 by default.See video for ember location credit to MrSiegebreaker13 for the vid.

    In order to complete the Magic weapon you will ultimately require 9 Titanite shards , 10 Large Green Titanite shards , 9 Blue Titanite Chunks and 1 Blue Titanite Slab

    Blue Titanite Chunks-Crystal Golems and Crystal Lizards (recommended to wear fog ring against lizards) inside the Crystal Cave, fifth Black Knight at the Kiln of the First Flame

    BlueTitanite Slab - Can be found in Crystal Cave by traversing the invisible walkway(See Video by deaDEV1IHD NOTE:the key to finding this path in game is watching the snow, it only falls where the ledge is located but use prism stones to verify) after the Crystal Lizards.

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

    TRICK-To get the achievement without using your final 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.

    MugenKairoGood solution, I would add that in the solution notes that Seath has to be killed before you can pick up the Ember and it is located where you first battled Seath (just so you don't have to watch the video)

    You can use this trick to spare resources.

    Pick up the Enchanted Falchion in one of the side rooms near the Duke's Archives balcony bonfire (warping possible).

    Now, get the Enchanted Weapon achievement by using the Blue chunks and a Slab, dashboard immediately so that it doesn't save. Get the Large Magic Ember from the death trap room where you first encountered Seath, after you have defeated him in Crystal Caves.

    Now go to Rickert of Vinheim in New Londo Ruins. Select Modify Equipment and Enchanted Falchion -> Magic Falchion +5. Back out and Reinforce Weapon from +6 to +10 using the Blue Chunks and a Slab. Achievement unlocks.

    Using this method, you do not need to use any titanite shards or large green titanite shards to reinforce the weapon and can use those materials for the Fire Weapon -achievement.

    Shadow XBLI would be careful about dashboarding. This game is known to corrupt game saves pretty easily. Happened to me.

    **Copied from my solution in the Enchanted Weapon achievement**

    Although in the stock game you can only find one Blue Titanite Slab in a single play through, if you own the Artorias of the Abyss DLC there is also another you can find.

    The extra Blue Titanite Slab can be found in the Royal Wood just outside of the Oolacile Sanctuary. It is located approximately in the middle of the first area after you cross the bridge. There will be a small body of water guarded by 2 smaller enemies and a Stone Guardian. To the right of these enemies there is a treasure box hidden in the grass which contains the Slab.
