Regular Souls

Items that will give you a certain amount of souls when consumed, and can be found as treasures in the different locations of the map. They are exceptionally useful, as they provide you a source of souls that won't be lost in death, and as such should be preserved for the moment right before you need them. We recommend not consuming them until you are certain you're about to purchase something either from a vendor or a level up.

(The highest soul drop multiplier possible is +72.8%. This is achieved by overkilling (dealing over 100% of an enemies max health in one hit), using Covetous Silver Serpent Ring, and Symbol of Avarice.)

Boss Souls

Souls that can either be consumed like regular souls, or used in the creation of Unique Boss Weapons. To ascend a regular weapon with a Boss Soul, the weapon must be of the respective weapon type required to create a unique weapon (e.g. to create the Moonlight Butterfly Horn, you must use either a rapier or a spear - no other class of weapon will work), and the weapon must be upgraded to 10+. Catalysts cannot be upgraded, so can be ascended by default. To create +10 weapons, you will need to obtain the Large Ember from The Depths, then give it to Andre who will be available to ascend +5 weapons. To create the Boss Soul weapons, you simply need to talk to the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo, who will offer the option immediately.

      If you think about it correctly, it is interesting that if you deal extensively with the lore and philosophy of Dark Souls, you get more insights into existence as a person and the soul than an ancient tome with a thousand pages can give you.

          The description of the guardian soul is wrong. It can NOT be used to make the guardian tail. It must be cut off during the fight.
