Knight's Honor Trophy / Achievement Guide

Knight's Honor is a Trophy and Achievement in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. It is arguably the hardest achievement to unlock in the game. To get this achievement you must obtain certain hard-to-get weapons and shields on the same character. Sometimes a glitch allows for the achievement to trigger when collecting with different characters, but if you want to be sure to get the achievement aim to get them all on one character.


Weapons and Shields ascended from Boss Souls

This requires a certain type of regular weapon, upgraded to 10+, and the Soul of a defeated Boss. The Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo will ascend the weapon and soul for 5000 souls. Any properties, stats or movesets of the previous weapon will be replaced when forged into a Boss Soul weapon, so it is usually a good idea to use something cheap or easily obtained when creating them. Most Boss souls are used to create two different weapons, but the Soul of Sif is used for three, so a minimum of NG+2 will be needed to acquire all Boss Soul weapons.

Chaos Blade

You must ascend a +10 Katana and the soul of Quelaag

Crystal Ring Shield 

Ascend a +10 shield or buckler, and the soul of The Moonlight Butterfly. Practically any shield can be used given that it's been upgraded to +10. 

Darkmoon Bow 

Ascend any +10 Bow, and the soul of Gwyndolin.

Dragon Bone Fist 

Ascend any +10 Cestus or Claw, and the core of the Iron Golem.

Dragonslayer Spear 

Ascend any +10 Spear or Rapier, and the soul of Ornstein

Golem Axe 

Ascend any +10 Axe, and the core of the Iron Golem.

Great Lord Greatsword 

Ascend a +10 dagger, sword or greatsword, and the soul of Gwyn, The Lord of Cinder (can only be done on NG+).

Greatshield of Artorias 

Ascend a +10 shield or buckler and the soul of Sif, The Great Grey Wolf

Greatsword of Artorias (Cursed) 

You must Ascend a +10 Dagger, Sword or Greatsword, with the soul of Sif, The Great Gray Wolf. Using these weapons for ascension will give you the cursed version of the Greatsword of Artorias. The name will not indicate any difference between the true and cursed variant, but the cursed version has a stat requirement of 18 for Faith and Intelligence.

Greatsword of Artorias (True)

You must ascend a +10 Broken sword, and the soul of Sif, The Great Gray Wolf. Basic Zombies or the Defiled in Blighttown will usually drop broken swords. The name will not indicate it is the true version of the greatsword, but it has higher stat requirements of 20 for faith and intelligence.

Lifehunt Scythe

Ascend any +10 Halberd, Scythe or Whip, and the soul of Priscilla. Unlike other Boss Souls, Priscilla's soul only ascends one weapon. 

Moonlight Butterfly Horn 

Ascend any +10 Spear or Rapier, and the soul of the Moonlight Butterfly.

Quelaag's Furysword

Ascend a +10 Curved Sword, and the soul of Quelaag. A scimatar is a good choice.

Smough's Hammer

Ascend a +10 Hammer or Great Hammer and the soul of Smough.

Tin Darkmoon Catalyst 

Ascend any Catalyst and the soul of Gwyndolin, The Darkmoon God. Ascension of the original catalyst is not needed, as it cannot be done. The sorcerer's catalyst is the best choice for ascension.

Weapons acquired from cutting off tails


Dragon King Greataxe

The Depths. Cut off the tail of the Gaping Dragon.

Cut the tail off of the Ancient Dragon in Ash Lake. As long as you don't attack the body, this will not anger the dragon or break the covenant.


Drake Sword

Undead Burg. Use arrows to shoot the tail of the Red Drake, or Bridge Wyvern, from underneath the bridge. It can also be cut off from on top of the bridge, if the Bridge Wyvern has landed to attack you. 

Moonlight Greatsword

Crystal Cave. Cut off the tail of Seath The Scaleless, once the immortality crystal has been broken. (Seath's tail cannot be cut off in your first encounter)

Priscilla's Dagger

Painted World of Ariamis. Cut off the tail of Priscilla - this can be difficult to do considering her ability to turn invisible, so consider careful strikes or weak weapons. Tag her with a throwing knife so you can track her while invisible. use weak weapons or the Force spell to break her poise, then go for her


Gargoyle Tail Axe

Undead Parish. During the boss fight, cut off the tail of the first Bell Gargoyle. Easier if focused down before 2nd Gargoyle comes into the fight. It can also be obtained from the two gargoyles near the beginning of Anor Londo.


**The FuturePress guide is wrong when it says that you need the ghost blade and the titanite catch pole. You do not need either.** All weapons must be on the same character.

      The obsidian greatsword is not needed? But I snatched it from Kalameet anyway. For me it was a great melee challenge! :)

        Wtf is everyone crying about? 100% this game on PS and coming to do it again on PC and I am honestly just playing the game. Everyone but sweaty trophy hunters, who don’t actually like the game would have no problem with 2.5 runs to get everything so stop crying or go and play smth else. Litterally play the game. You will have everything u need outside maybe so black knight weapons in 20hrs from a brand new character

          Pessoal, então, sei que essa conquista é extremamente chata e frustrante. Mas a maioria das wikis não tem a lista correta de todas as armas necessárias. Para eu realmente conseguir todas, precisei consultar 3 sites diferentes. Se eu não estou enganado, falta nessa página o Notched Whip, que também é uma arma necessária para conseguir a conquista

            The people *****ing about this achievement who haven't even done it have no idea how frustrating it is... Not the trophy but when the trophy corrupts your game and forces you to delete all your progress without giving you the trophy... Nice... Never thought I would delete dark souls especially recently trying to get platinum but **** it it's from softs fault once again

            • Anonymous

              I dedicated a massive amount of time to platinuming dark souls and finally got this trophy done and now dark souls is corrupted and I did not get the trophy after taking all of the items out of my bottomless box and 300 hours of dark souls build up for a corrupt game. People don't talk about it enough but fromsoft games are designed with massive flaws in every game. Especially dark souls there best game

              • Anonymous

                Fun fact: notice how there's 3 different things you need to use sifs soul for when all other bosses have 1 or 2, almost arbitrarily making you do 3 playthroughs for platinum? Ds2 carries on this tradition

                There may not be a rare weapons achievement, but there's a miracle and pyromancy you need that are obtainable either from 500 wins from the dual covenant and 500 allies helped as a blue sentinel, or just randomly sold from an npc you can only access after half the game in ng++

                    I've been following some f*cking guide and everything was going smoothly until turned out I also need tail weapons which I was just getting rid of so they don't clutter my inventory space, so now I gotta replay it for the 4th time just so I can get the gargoyles, f*ck I'm so done with this f*cking game but I can't just let go since it's 99% done lmaoooooooo

                        I just got the achievement without the Greatshield of Artorias. Someone here said that they got it without the Greatsword of Artorias (cursed). Could it be that you need any two of the three weapons that are forged with the soul of Sif?

                              Wow Fack this trophy, this is literally the only trophy out of all From Software games I will not complete. The amount of farming for upgrade materials, covenant items, it's outrageous really.

                                I have also collected all weapons and the trophy will not come. I ckeck the list 10 times. The only difference is that I upgraded the moonlight sword, dragon sword and nitoh greatsword full. I try to get them again and hopefully this was the reason.

                                    There are some glitchs that you can use, like shop dupe/proxy quantity to get the boss souls and go to Ng+ only to kill ornstein and smoug for the second soul and make the weapon. No need to use cheat engine or any program.

                                      My copy of the future press guide does not contain the two unnecessary weapons mentioned in the note at the end of this list but it does contain the Demon's catalyst (dropped by the Demon Firesage in Demon Ruins) which does NOT appear on THIS list.

                                            Just did Knights Honor on Dark Souls: Remastered on Steam and completed it without needing to get the Cursed version of Artorias's Greatsword, I had only crafted the True one. This was definitely all on one file and certainly only on NG+, not NG+2.
                                            Not sure if there was any change about this from the PtD Version, but if you're going for this, try crafting the True version first and collect the rest and maybe save yourself half of a NG+2 run!

                                                          I had all weapons but somehow didn't get the achievement. I even put them in the same order as the items in this article and checked like 10 times.
                                                          So I was desperate and put all the weapons on the ground to collect them again (in case the game just didn't register). So I collected them again and every single weapons I crafted with boss souls was gone, still no achievement.

At the end of my second playthrough I prep everything up for the Knight's Honor trophy, leaving the cursed SoA for last. I make a V line for Sif, bring down every boss I need to get to Anor Londo, find out at the giant blacksmith my mistake...so I take down O&S a 3rd time for warping and I ****ing realize I need the large ember again...so I had to deal with the most BS boss of this game for a 3rd time, the capra demon and his ****ing dogs on his studio apartment closet.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Easiest way to get them is to go to painted world, put on silver serpent ring and symbol of avarice, run from bonfire to the phalanx enemies (blob guys with shields and spears) and kill them all, run back to bonfire, repeat. You'll get over 20k souls each run on NG+, and you'll quickly have enough to just buy all the materials you need from the giant blacksmith.
