Dark Souls: Special Boss “Souls” Usage

Similar to Demon’s Souls, certain bosses in Dark Souls will drop special souls that you can use for two things; convert it to regular souls or make a unique weapon.

In Dark Souls, there are a total of nine special bosses. As mentioned above, each of the special bosses will give you some kind of advantage if used correctly. If you want to have a unique weapon, then convert the soul with a Blacksmith rather than converting it to a regular soul.

To help you to decide on this, here are the stats of the nine special boss souls. If you were to ask me, I would convert the boss souls into a divine weapon.

    Hey, just wondering, how do you actually convert these to the weapon form?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, I do not actually have the game yet… I’m picking it up in a week or two, when there are some pre-owned copies floating about (from all the rage quit Xbox fanboys ;) )

    You need to upgrade a normal weapon to +10, then the +10 weapon is brought to the Giant blacksmith in Anor londo.

    Btw, your preo-own idea is great, but won’t it only be about 5 bucks cheaper (from my experience).
