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 in different characters, but if you want to be sure aim to get them all on one.

 

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.

 

Dragon Greatsword

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.

        Mmm, painstakingly collected every single other weapon on the list and went to finish up by forging all the boss weapons only to realize I needed three souls of sif and only had two, perhaps having used one at one point figuring there could be no possible need to hoard more than two of a given boss soul. I was pretty crushed. Then I was hit by the sudden realization of just how ludicrous it was that I'd done this much busywork all for a meaningless achievement literally no person other than me will ever even know I have, and suddenly it bothered me a whole lot less.

              For me, two different play throughs added together for the ach. Earlier I had done an NG, NG+ and NG++. I did not get through the ++ because of the stupid 4 kings so started completely over. While towards the end of the new NG I killed Leeroy, got his two items which I had not gotten earlier, and the ach popped, along with The Dark Soul ach for 100% complete. FYI, I killed Leeroy with 3 whacks of a maxed out Gargoyle Fire Halberd.

                    I noticed that you can use the soul of artorias from the dlc to forge a boss weapon. This means you don’t have to do a ng++ run for the 3rd sif soul! But this needs to be confirmed because I don’t know if this will trigger the trophy. Maybe I am just wrong with this.

                          What's the point of even getting the achievement/trophy if y'all are just gonna beg for people to drop the weapons for you? Earn it yourself. Sure you got the Dark Soul but you didn't really grind for it.

                              PSA: there's a Max item limit for how many items can be on the ground at once. Tried to drop all my special weapons to a friend so he could get the achievement and over half of all the items disappeared.

                                  Guys I acquire some assistance, I have every weapon needed but I am not getting the trophy on ds1 remastered.
                                  Does it need to be unupgraded?
                                  Because I have some items upgraded. And this is the only thing I can think of.

                                    I don't know if it's a bug or a change for the remaster or what, but I just got this achievement without the cursed version of the Greatsword of Artorias.
