    There are 34 Sorceries in the game:

    26 that can be bought from NPCs
    4 that are found in static locations
    3 that are made by transposing boss souls with Ludleth of Courland in Firelink Shrine
    1 that is a covenant reward (Great Deep Soul from Aldritch Faithful)

    This achievement can be earned in your first playthrough or across multiple playthroughs. There are missable Sorceries tied to Orbeck of Vinheim and Anri of Astora, so be careful with their progression.

    Chameleon

    1) When you meet Anri near the Church of Yorshka bonfire, this pilgrim is disguised (via Chameleon) as one of the human statues in the corner and can be killed to obtain the spell. This ruins progress towards the Usurpation ending and achievement, though.

    2) In the Darkmoon Temple behind an illusory wall right before Anor Londo. You must have progressed Anri's questline towards the Usurpation ending for the pilgrim to be there, and it will be dead with the spell available after interacting with Anri:

    vSullyApparently it was renamed.

    "Formerly called Pestilent Mercury, the Sorcery was renamed Pestilent Mist in Patch 1.15."

    Could anyone clarify specifically which enemy you mean by "Mage". There are 3 enemies to which I think you could be referring. Two look very similar and are essentially a small and a large version of the same thing. The other looks like fat jabba equivalent.
