Avelyn is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.

 

Repeating crossbow cherished by the weapon craftsman Eidas. Its elaborate design makes it closer to a work of art than a weapon. Intricate mechanism makes heavy damage possible through triple-shot firing of bolts. but in fact each bolt inflicts less damage."

How to Get / Where to Find the Avelyn

The Duke's Archives
This repeating crossbow is found in a chest on top of a bookshelf. There are three ways to reach it:

  1. Rotate the stairs, then immediately run down, and off, when the lowest part of the stairs is above the bookshelf. This can be a hit and miss approach, so prepare to die. (Note: I found that if you start moving down the stairs immediately once you are able to and hug the right side of the stairs the entire way down without stopping, you should be able to reach the chest fairly consistently since the timing seems to work out correctly. This was with about 45% equip burden.)
  2. Stand on the ledge above it (at the bottom of the stairs) for 10+ seconds. Sprint up and activate the stair, wait until it has rotated 180 degrees, then quit and reload your game. You should now find yourself back on the ledge, above the shelf, with the stairs turned the other way. Drop down.
  3. Online: Wait on the ledge above the bookcase while a co-op player rotates the stairs, then drop down.

Notes

  • Give to Frampt to receive 50 souls.

WARNING:

After you open the chest, if you have not cleared out the enemies in the room prior to attempting to get the chest, it is STRONGLY advised to warp back to a bonfire instead of attempting to clear the room. Immediately upon opening the chest, you will be pelted by arrows from the undead archers, on top of having already taken damage from the fall. If you fall off the bookshelf to the right, it should give you enough time to warp back to a bonfire. The reason being that if you happen to die after getting the chest, there is a possibility that your souls will spawn directly in front of the chest as opposed to anywhere else, even if you died on ground level (this is what happened to me). Especially if you have built up a lot of humanity, dealing with the annoyance of having to clear the archives again to continue your quest is far better than having to make this very difficult jump twice in a row.

      Can confirm that the second method works, but make sure to walk out there properly or else you risk falling all the way to the floor.
