    Pre-requisites (very minor spoilers):

    - Chaos Flame Ember (Demon Ruins) - Defeat the first boss (Ceaseless Discharge) then go back to the entrance and head down to cave floor and defeat the five Chaos Demons there.

    - Large Flame Ember (Demon Ruins) - Before the boss fog door, after the string of Capra Demons there's a left turn guarded by a few Chaos Demons and centipedes. Be wary of trap.

    - 9 Titanite Shards - Can be farmed from any hominid enemy or bought from Andre the blacksmith for 800 souls each.

    - 9 Green Titanite Shards - Can be farmed from the leeches in the swamp, or bought from the Crestfallen Merchant in Sen's Fortress for 5000 souls each.

    - 7 Red Titanite Chunks - Can be farmed from the Chaos Eaters in Demon Ruins, or 100% drop from the Greatsword-wielding Black Knight in the Kiln of the First Flame.

    - 1 Red Titanite Slab - In a chest in the Chaos Eater trap in Demon Ruins (1x per playthrough), rare drop from the Chaos Eaters, or trade an ascended Pyromancy Flame with Hawk Girl (1x per playthrough).

    - 1 MELEE weapon of your choice that can be upgraded using titanite shards. (Crossbows/Bows will not ascend to Chaos weapons)


    Now take your bounty to Vamos the blacksmith along with a few thousand souls to pay for his services. Vamos can be found in the Catacombs. First go through the level normally, then go back and go to the room with the spiral staircase that ascends two floors and many doors. Follow the staircase all the way down to the end and roll (don't jump) off the very end towards the wall.

    Give Vamos the embers, then upgrade your melee weapon to +5 with the titanite shards, ascend it to Fire, upgrade to +5 with the green titanite shards, then ascend it to Chaos, and upgrade to +5 with the red titanite chunks and finally the slab to pop the achievement.

    BaronVonBrannanGreat guide. Just one minor correction thought id mention. You dont actually 'need' the large fire ember. That's only used for going from Fire +5 to +10. To create a chaos weapon you only need to make a weap fire +5 then ascend it to Chaos.

    Thumbs up otherwise :)

    XI AlphaMale IXApparently the little Pinwheel Skeletons from the next room can actually KILL Vamos. Guess I won't be getting this until NG+. Ugh.

    Skeptical MarioMinor corrections: it takes a total of 10 green titanite shards because going from +5 to fire +0 requires one; and it takes a total of 8 red titanite chunks because going from fire +5 to chaos +0 requires one.

    Really nice guide overall, though.

    Chaos weapons are special because they are Fire damage weapons that have additional damage that scales with Humanity (up to a maximum of 10 humanity)So chaos weapons will always be better (assuming identical stats) to Fire.

    To create a Chaos Weapon 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 locate Chaos Flame Ember which is found in the Demon Ruins ( See vid for the location and credit to MichelKobayashi for the vid) and give this to Vamos who is located in the Catacombs,This allows Vamos to Upgrade your +5 Fire weapon to Chaos and Chaos +5. Vamos automatically is able to make Weapons of Fire to +5.

    In order to complete the Chaos weapon from scratch you will ultimately require 9 Titanite shards , 9 Large Green Titanite shards , 8 Chunks of Red Titanite and 1 Red Titanite Slab

    Red Titanite Chunks - Lost Izalith the tentacle monster plants can drop them and they respawn apparently, However the best place to farm chunks of all kinds is in the Kiln of the First Flame at the end of the game...The Black knights there are respawnable and 100% chunk drop rate.

    Red Titanite Slab - Rare drop from Chaos Eater in Lost Izalith
    and in a treasure chest prior to boss area.

    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. Supposedly worked on Demons Souls

    The NerevarineNote: the crossbow will ascend to a fire weapon but not a chaos weapon. Possibly other weapons are like this.

    You may also want to mention how to find Vamos and mention that the treasure chest for the red slab is in the poisonous pit of Chaos Eaters.
