Channeler's Trident is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


Trident of the Six-eyed Channelers, sorcerers who serve Seath the Scaleless in collecting human specimens. Thrusted in circular motions in a unique martial arts dance that stirs nearby allies into a bloodthirsty frenzy.

How to Get / Where to Find the Channeler's Trident

Drops from the Channeler (1% Chance - Undead Parish, Depths and The Duke's Archives)


  • Give to Frampt to receive 1 soul.
  • Special: The two-handed heavy attack of the trident increases the attack power of allies by 20% this is a useful weapon before a boss fight when you have summoned Phantoms into your world or to give yourself some breathing room during an invasion.
  • The duration of the 'channelers dance' buff lasts for 30 seconds.
  • The durability also deteriorates fast (80 points per use) when using the special attack, and after three uses the weapon breaks.
  • Boosts AR by 20% to all allies within area of effect. Buff power does not increase as weapon is upgraded.
  • Once the weapon's durability has reached zero, you can still use the R2 to get the "dance" animation but you won't receive the buff.


Warp to the Duke's Archives bonfire, and make sure the stairs are turned so that you can reach the second Channeler (on the top level in the bonfire room). There are 2 ways, both are equally viable :

  • From the bonfire, go to the central stairway and take the left turn, then take the wooden stairs to the 2nd floor (You'll have to kill on the wooden stairs to get past him faster). Go left, kill the 1st channeler, then take the moving stairs and kill the 2nd channeler. Homeward Bone and repeat. (50 seconds per run)
  • Start from to the prison cell bonfire. Run to the ladder, across the balcony and into the Archives. Kill the 1st channeler, then take the moving stairs and kill the 2nd channeler. Homeward Bone and repeat..(55 seconds per run)

        Got mine after about 20 farming runs. Very fun at SL22 btw. As mentioned previously, align the staircases so that you just run up the flights of stairs to the first channeler and then the second is right up the rotating staircase above. Hidden body or ring of fog will allow you to run past all enemies en route. Pyro +10 with crown of dusk and bellowing dragoncrest ring using black flame two shots and breaks their poise so they don't teleport. You think this farming item is bad? Try farming red titanite slabs.

          This item has one of the longest comment sections I've seen on this site lol. I've gotten it without farming on a few playthroughs now let's see how long it takes me to get it on a character that can actually use it! Got plans for a lvl 35-60 co-op/invasion build; Magic Mike's the name and dancing and pew pew's the game.

            Ok so I've got 410 item discovery, and I've repeated the crystal archive run 40 times - so that's 120 channelers killed with s 4.1% chance of the trident dropping each time

            According to my dumbass calculations, the probability of the trident NOT dropping within those 120 kills is 0.66%

            Going hollow here

              I know commenting here is wishful thinking but I’m running out of hope.
              Please Dark Soul’s Gods, just take me out of my misery

                Start from the Duke’s Archive Bonfire. Make sure you have the staircase switched so that it will allow you to access the second pineapple head after killing his brother who is the poster child of the family. Be sure your item discovery is at 410 and have the bonfire fully lit because it represents the rage burning inside your unfulfilled existence. Strip naked and equip whatever weapon will slice that pineapple in one attack (I used the Black Knight Halberd +5, I recommend it as once you press RT/R2 all you gotta do is make sure you lock onto him and the attack will kill em, as you slice at an angle which makes hitting a moving target easier). Be sure you have more than 20 homeward bones in the bank and play some music to keep from going insane. I finally got mine whilst the song “Stobert’s Blues” by I Monster, was playing. May the sun shine upon you and may you have a good harvest fellow undead.
