So looking at the strat guide, I'm thinking the minimum number of playthroughs...

...is 3 (all with the same character via 2 new game+ run throughs). I came to this conclusion based on the rare weapons achievement requiring 3 different weapons (technically 2 swords and a shield) to be made using Sif's Soul. Can anyone confirm this is true? I mean, I'm looking forward to it, but I'm already getting nervous about NG+ since it ramps up the difficulty (quite a bit, I've read) with each successive play through.

Could you go more in depth as far as forging said rare weapons? I might be able to help out if I knew the entire process.

Yes, I believe you are correct. Three is what I had counted as well.

Also, from what I've read, the difficulty really ramps up on the first NG+, but subsequent playthroughs see a smaller increase. I think NG6 (if you play that many times) is the final difficulty increase.

2 1/2 according to an individual over on PS3trophies who has the platinum trophy.

And the way the book words the achievements, makes it seem like items count across different characters.

2 1/2 would be right.

You need Sif's soul 3 times to make the three rares from him.
