  • Resist Curse - Sold by Ingward (the guy in the Crimson armor set in New Londo Ruins. He is on top of the church and will give you the Key to the Seal while you are there).

Enemy dropped/looted spells

  • Great Magic Weapon - Found on a corpse on the chandelier in the room full of Painting Guardians in Anor Londo. You must break the chain while you are walking on the beams overhead for it to come down.
  • Hush - Dropped by Griggs of Vinheim (after you purchase everything from him, he will go here. Kill him and he'll drop it.) OR it can be found on a corpse along with the Black Sorcerer Set and the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring. When you get to the room with the stone launching mechanism, launch it in another direction and go down the way you came. Then halfway down, drop onto the pillar and pick it up off the corpse.
  • Remedy - Found in a chest in Blighttown near the elevator. The quickest way to get there is the shortcut from the Valley of Drakes. Descend several ladders and watch out for a path on a root with some woods. Follow that root to the other side, past the cragspider, and directly next to a corpse will be the treasure chest with this spell.
  • Strong Magic Shield - Treasure from a chest in the Duke's Archives. Located at the top floor, at the far end of the walkway near the Channeler (requiring the rotating stairs to get to).
  • White Dragon Breath - Dropped by Big Hat Logan AT THE END OF HIS STORYLINE. See HERE for how to do this.

Logan and his apprentice sell sorceries. Logan is in Sen's fortress, through the wall on the south wall.
The key to his cell is on the roof over a break in the brigde then down the stairs. Master Key aslo works
His apprentice is in the basment of the undead burg behind a locked door thatyou can buy the key for from the merchant in the burg for 1000 souls.

Yes, there are a few sorceries, same with pyromancies and miracles, that are scattered throughout the world to be found instead of bought. As for sorceries, I know there is one in Sen's Fortress that you get when you get the set of black sorcerer armor. Also, there is one in Blighttown when you get the Crimson armor set as well. Plus Logan and Grimm sell sorceries in The Duke's Archives as well, which cannot be accessed until after you get the Lordvessell.

Spoiler(I guess)

There is a spell you get buy killing big hat logan after freeing him the second time
in dukes archives called "white dragon breath" so make sure to get it. I don't know
of any other place were the spell is available/
P.S. I'm not sure if you can get it by killing him the first time. Try to free him
because he sells awesome spells the second time

In darkroot basin if you go to the left of the hydra theres a path leading to a ice golem. If you kill him some girl appears out of nowhere. If you go back later her summon sign will appear by a rock next to the lake. Summon her and she'll sell you a few spells. Repair spell can save you a few souls.

Be sure to buy the sorcery from the sealer in New Londo for 5000 souls, I think.

make sure it's before you get the Lordvessel. If you have the Lordvessel he wont sell you anything. Killing him wont get you anything either. I tried...

Got this achievement during my New Game+.

Yeah I have all the spells and this isn't popping for me can someone tell me what am I doing wrong? Do I have to buy all spells from everyone in the game or just get one of each spell?

Make sure you got the one mentioned earlier by killing big hat logan also sometimes the merchants will only sell spells at certain times. Here is a great guide that goes in depth on the spells needed.

Don't forget resist curse from Ingward in new londo ruins, if you didn't get it from him and already killed the four kings. DO NOT kill him, he will not drop it. Simply talk to him and he will spawn at firelink shrine close to the other sorcerer selling dude, but not next to him like logan was, a little more further away.

Dusk is a dlc character so you will need to buy the dlc to get all the achievements. Pretty stupid...

Ignore my previous comment. The Golden golem appeared in the darkroot basin behind the hydra after restarting my game. Kill him and Dusk will spawn. Answer yes to her question and her summon sign will appear on the beach by a small rock then you can buy the last few sorceries from her.
