Boss Soul Weapons are weapons crafted from the souls dropped by bosses throughout the game. There are various weapons which can be constructed from the souls. You may also consume the Boss Souls if you wish, but they are best reserved for the construction of these unique weapons.

Boss Soul Weapons

 

The Process

Boss Soul weapons and some spells are acquired through trading.
This involves giving an NPC a boss soul and getting a spell or piece of equipment in return, plus a soul fee for creating the spell/weapon. You do not need any of the base weapon types.
There are two NPCs who can be traded with for boss weapons, and each with their own inventories.

  • Straid (The Lost Bastille)
    • (Requires 3 INT for him to trade with you)
    • Trades boss souls for both spells and weapons, also sells some very useful spells w/o trading boss souls.
  1. Locate Straid in his cell in Lost Bastille (located above the stairs past the gate to Sinner's Rise).
  2. Unpetrify him using a Fragrant Branch of Yore after clearing out all the enemies surrounding him.
  3. Assuming that your Intelligence is at least a 3, you may now trade with him.
  4. If you trade at least 4 boss souls, talk to him and he will give you the Black Set (the staff he uses can only be obtained in Dragon Shrine at the cost of a Pharros Lockstone, an incredibly low price for any sorcerer with 50+ int).

 

  1. Near the bonfire at the Shaded Ruins there's a single petrified Lion Clan Warrior just across the tree bridge. Unpetrify and kill him to get the Fang Key.
  2. To the right of the Giant Basilisk, there are some wooden planks on the ground. If you walk on these planks, they will break and you will fall into a pit with 4 regular Basilisks that ambush you. These basilisks will petrify you quickly if not expected. Fight them or run further into the cave (if you do decide to run through the cave, avoid the puddles as they will corrode your equipment). Once the basilisks have been killed, you will find a locked wooden door. Use the Fang Key to unlock it and talk to Ornifex to trigger her relocation.
  3. Ornifex will leave and go to a room full of dolls near the 3rd bonfire in Brightstone Cove. She'll grant you a free trade (boss weapons only) of your choice (standard pricing is not shown when trading the first time).
