Old King Soul

old one soul

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.

Old King Soul is a consumable item in Dark Souls 2.







  • 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.

      Definitely think this soul is definitely supposed to be relating to Gwyn, The Old Iron King himself does bear some pretty noticeable similarities to him afterall, Being a supremely powerful yet short-sighted king, being a lord of a keep of iron and fire similar to how Gwyn was the lord of fire and sunlight who did some messed-up things out of fear, only rather than a fear of the Dark like Gwyn it was a fear of the undead, and also meeting an incinerating end just like Gwyn did.

      Either that or it's the Four Kings since a big part of the Iron King's downfall was greed like how the Four Kings were consumed by the Abyss
      But I feel he bears far more similarities to Gwyn.

      Either that or it's the Four Kings

      • Given the weapon and the spell you can get from this, this is obviously referring to Gwyn.

        However, the description of Lord soul shard dropped by the 4 kings says :
        "Soul of one of the Four Kings, who fell to the Dark."

        So this could refer to that soul as well...

        But Gwyn is more likely.

          "Old King Soul" not "Old Kings Soul." How the hell would this line up with the four kings at all? This is obviously referring to Gwyn.

          What an absurd theory
