Twinkling Titanite Location


Farming Tip

Giant Clam: Equip the Gold Covetous Serpent Ring and gather lots of humanity if you wish. Rest at the bonfire near the beginning of Ash Lake. Upon defeating the first two clams you see, use Homeward Bones or the Homeward miracle to quickly respawn them. Repeat as much as you like. If the clams are too tough for you an ultra greatsword or similar weapon with high damage can infinitely stun the clams when timed correctly. These clams are very susceptible to fire. If you have some high powered pyromancies, two shots should take them out. If you simply cannot afford to purchase homeward bone in bulk a trip to the Crystal Cave may be a good idea.

Crystal Cave: After defeating Seath the Scaleless  the bonfire in Crystal Cave  will be unlocked. Allowing for easy farming of the Man-Eater Shell's for Twinkling Titanite. Higher level Pyromancy can take out a Shell in 2 hits. Longer range melee weapons, like great swords, pikes, etc imbued with lightning can stun on hit multiple enemies as well as outrange their attacks,  to facilitate safer, easier farming. 
You can warp to the bonfire in the Crystal Caves, making it much easier to leave and come back to this farming spot.

Since Patch 1.04 and above : Twinkling Titanite can be bought from the giant blacksmith in Anor Londo for 8,000 souls each.

      It is much easier to parry boss souls in your inventory via the Remastered duplication glitch. End game you have at least one 16K soul in Sif. You can get 300K in about three minutes.

        In NG, on average you can get a faster rate of twinkling titanite by farming the clams in crystal caves (~25 min for 99) than farming for the souls to buy them (~40 min @ painted world). This isn't including the extra souls you get from the clams as well as feeding the purging stones to Frampt (~200-250k souls per 99 twinkling titanite provided you are using avarice/silver serpent ring). NG+ and beyond, farming souls in the painted world is a bit faster (~20 min for 792k souls) and definitely less tedious.
