Old King Soul is a consumable item in Dark Souls 2.
| Soul of the ineffable.
This once magnificent soul continues to exert influence over the land, even after the eons have reduced it to these remnants.
Use it to acquire numerous souls, or to create something of great worth.
- Can be used to gain 75,000 souls
- Traded with Straid of Olaphis with 10,000 souls for the Blinding Bolt Miracle.
- Traded with Weaponsmith Ornifex with 10,000 souls for the Dragonslayer Greatbow.
- Although this soul would technically align to that of the 4 Kings in Dark Souls, it is also possible that it is the soul of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder. The fact that it can be traded for Blinding Bolt, the description of which mentions the "God of Sun", points more towards Gwyn (Four Kings didn't have their own Lord Soul. It was part of Gwyn's Soul granted to them as a reward). However, the greed of the Iron King more resembles the fall of the 4 Kings than Gwyn.
