Dark Souls: Remastered – Knight’s Honor Achievement Guide

Knight’s Honor 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.

Weapons dropped by specific enemies

Some of these weapons are guaranteed drops and some are random drops. You likely will need to farm the appropriate enemies to get all of these weapons.

Increasing your item discovery can help get the weapons to drop more frequently. Consider using the Covetous Gold Serpent ring or the Symbol of Avarice (which do not stack) and having humanity in your counter to increase item discovery.
