Just got my 1000g on Dark Souls, and I can confirm two things for Knight's Honor. The weapon 'Crescent Axe' sold or dropped by Patches from the Catacombs is required and that particular achievement is not cross-character. Tested by getting the Crescent Axe on a seperate character before getting it on the character with the rest of the weapons that popped the achievement.

Also confirming that Black Bow of Pharis, Ghost Blade and Notched Whip aren't required.


From my experience, Bond of a Pyromancer is cross-character though. Pretty safe to assume that the other two spell achievements will be as well.

Oh yeah? How'd he get 2 of most boss souls, both Ornstein's and Smough's souls and Sif's soul 3 times if he only played once? And both endings?

Question about the Sunlight Spear miracle. The section in this guide for Miracles says this:
Quote:
Sunlight Spear - defeat Dark Sun Gwyndolin and gain rank 1 Sunlight Covenant reward
However, the section on the covenant itself, both here and in the wiki, says the requirement is to gain rank 1 in the covenant and offer Gwyn's soul. They don't mention anything about Gwyndolin. Which is it? Or is it both?

Just got my 1000 a second ago. 100 hours in and I have been on 1 freak server that allowed me to play online with people successfully. Ultimately I have no desire to continue playing this game, though I loved it at the time. With all the different weapons and armor, online would have been fun if only it worked.

It's Gwyn's soul. You offer it to the altar beneath the dragon.

He'll be right next to the bonfire in the Abyss, but there are some conditions. If you have the Lordvessel, you can't have spoken to Frampt since acquiring it or even jumped down the hole at Frampt and put the Lordvessel down.

Thanks for the clarification! This should be corrected in the guide whenever OP gets the chance.

Dont feel bad, a lot of people miss that one on first playthrough, including myself. Luckily very easy to get on next playthrough.

Nice guide, but reading it has made me decide not to 1000 this game, way too much grinding for my tastes.

You can get those off the knights at the end of the game. Just pump your item discovery stat and farm them until you get them. I got all the black knight weapons I was missing this way.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this yet, but you can be invincible until a patch comes out, which will help you out a lot on your NG+ and NG++ playthroughs.
If you cast Strong Magic Shield (it might require a greatshield instead of a small one, but I don't think it does), you will be invincible for the duration of the spell due to a glitch. You can combine this with the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring for longer durations on the spells as the spell only has three uses.
And speaking of Sorcery, Cast Light is just really good for the Tomb of the Giants in general, and Fall Control will let you avoid that fall damage when going into a lot of bosses' arenas. Sorcery's good for a lot of things, really.

Next time he invades will be in the Demon's Ruins AFTER placing the Lordvessel. Third time he invades is in Lost Izalith just before the fogdoor to Bed of Chaos.

XANTHOUS KING, JEREMIAH: Located in the Painted World of Ariamis, you must be living for him to invade. Look for a semi open field with broken crates, and just wander around.

You get a Sunlight medal if you help someone at a boss battle and he has summoned Soltaire as well, if Soltaire survived the fight. I farmed them at the Gaping Dragon...

I must have been lucky, Black Knight Sword dropped for me from the first Black Knight you encounter in the Undead Burg (before the Taurus/Havel Tower). I have been using it since and upped it to +3, like it more than Drake Sword
