Loyce Soul

Items >>

boss_soul.png "Soul of the Knights of Loyce.
The Knights of Loyce were taken by Chaos, and lost all sense of purpose and being.
The few woeful souls that trudged back home were guided by some faint vestige of self.
This soul is pure sorrow, and only Alsanna can put it to rest."

Usage
  • Bring the souls to Alsanna, Silent Oracle, who will reward you for the amount of souls possessed. The stairs leading to Alsanna, Silent Oracle will open up as you bring more souls.
  • Consumable but it gains no Soul and it is not possible to sell it to Gavlan.

Preparation

Solo
  • Follow the Loyce Knights so you won't get crowded by Charred Loyce Knights that easily, and you can sweep the enemies when they're staggered.
  • Loyce Knights are acted as distractions rather than actual help, treat them as human shields and sweep the charred knights behind the crowd.
  • If your health is halved, hide behind the crowd but don't go too far, drink your Estus Flask twice or more to heal faster.
  • Once the portal of the Burnt Ivory King appears, quit the field with Aged Feather
  • Rinse and repeat, they drop Loyce Souls regularly under this condition.

Multi
  • It is possible to summon phantoms at the Grand Cathedral bonfire. After the fight and before the boss appears, when the floor starts shaking, use the Black Separation Crystal to banish any summoned phantoms. This will give the host enough time to use the aged feather. This strategy allows both phantoms and the host to farm souls quickly.
  • You can also summon the NPCs near the bonfire and the drop rate seems to increase by quite a bit with them present. When all the knights are dead cast yourself off the edge. This strategy works best with Vendricks Blessing so you don't turn hollow or if you have an excess of human effigies to spare.

Note:
  • It seems that Loyce Souls drop more often on higher NG+ cycles, especially when Burnt Ivory King is alive.
  • They can still be dropped from Charred Loyce Knights whilst summoned as a phantom.
  • Much higher drop rate if help as phantom, even without farming gear.
  • Using the Symbol of Avarice, will allow you to farm both souls and items with better rates. Get yourself summoned and farm the knights.
  • In Scholar of the First Sin, joining the covenant of champions makes the knights spawn infinitely. (Doesn't seem to work after Burnt Ivory King is killed)
