Alright now that I'm home found the videos.

This one is part 3 in his series after Quelaag, he tackles Sen's Fortress and the Iron Giant. I'm really waiting for the next part with Anor Londo.

Probably one of the funniest PVP Dark Soul's videos I've seen yet. No ledge? No problem ;)

So, going by what I'm reading at IGN the Pendant item thing was a troll. Pasted below is a small snippet of an article.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/11/02/dark-souls-miyazaki-talks-artorias-of-the-abyss

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amen to that. After Artorias the DLC's final stretch goes to the bottom of the Abyss, where its father Manus dwells. This boss isn't just one of the best fights in the entire Souls series, but carries many answers about the nature of the Dark Soul itself - as well as being, at bottom, a human who goes crazy over a pendant. Sound familiar?

When Dark Souls first came out, an answer Miyazaki gave in a Famitsu interview said he'd choose either nothing or a pendant for his starting gift in Dark Souls. The pendant, which has no in-game function, became a focal point for the wilder elements of the community, and the centre of every conspiracy theory going.

I ask Miyazaki whether Manus is a little dig at the series' more obsessive players. "That is a very interesting consideration," says the devilish fox. "But I suppose I did not include the meaning." And as for the original pendant speculation, brace yourselves Dark Soulers for Miyazaki's final word: "When it comes to the pendant, I actually had a little bit of an intention to play a prank."

------------------------------------------------------------------

While kinda funny, I feel kinda dumb for all of the hours I tried to figure out what to do with the dang thing.

Apparently, the BB glitch affects trophies...I got all the rare weapons on the wiki list, but still no trophy. I think the only rare weapon I passed down through BB was the Demons Great Hammer, so I will get that on NG++ and see what happens.

Posted on Nov 5, 2012 1:01:44 PM PST
Not sure that's true Hmph. I have done the BB glitch in the past and I got the platinum. You may have missed out on some weapon.

Him says:
Well, I definitely have every one on the wiki page. There is some question about the Cursed Blade, which I don't have...maybe I need that one. I have Dark Hand, so I know it's not that. Actually, I got Dark Hand to drop from a DarkWraith who also dropped a Tite Slab at the same time.

You can trade a sack to snuggly for the Demon's Hammer I think.

Him says:
I looked and saw I actually have 2 of them, so I must've gotten it legitimately at least once. On a side note, I'm +2 in the Sunlight Covy and still haven't gotten the Sunlight Spear, so my miracle trophy may not happen either :(

Good news is that I'm only a red tite slab away from all weapon ascension trophies completed.

Sunlight Spear is trading the soul of Gwyn and can be done at level 1.

Posted on Nov 5, 2012 1:12:16 PM PST
Him says:
Ohhhhh...guess I'll have to trade that in NG++ since I made the sword from his soul already.

Finished off my 'Wisdom of a Sage' trophy last night...still looking for that elusive rare weapon, though.

The trident was the most annoying one for me. It was the last one i got and it took hours.

Him says:
I sat down expecting to farm for the trident for many hours...I equipped the Gold Cov Ring, upped my Humanity and set out. I killed 2 Channelers and got the drop. I was shocked...it took longer to get a SK Spear drop in Anor Londo for me. But I can't figure out what weapon I'm missing...all the lists say I should have the trophy.

Posted on Nov 6, 2012 11:12:47 AM PST
The lists have been known to be wrong. Make sure you have the more common weapons. I was surprised when the trophy didn't pop up on my screen but then realized that I was missing a stone greatshield (which is not considered to be that rare). As soon as I got one, the trophy showed up.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 5:14:32 AM PST
I have the plat on PS3 and if need be I can let you hold some stuff to get the trophy to pop for something elusive.

Thanks Capt, I've got my character to level 126 now if you can invade/summon at that level range. I wonder if the Avelyn is needed? I don't have that on this character.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 10:14:34 AM PST
I think I'm SL 137. I'm not 100% sure, but I can check tomorrow night when I have access to my PS3.

I never collected Avelyn.

Which guide are you going by? There's an item in the official guide that isn't listed, but required. There's also some items listed that are not required.

Do you have both the Artorias Greatswords? Jagged Ghost Blade? The stone weapon/shield? All the rare shields?

I'm going by the list on darksoulswikidot. Yes, I have the Cursed GreatSword of Artorias and the normal GreatSword of Artorias along with his GreatShield. I have 2 JGBs and both Stone Knight items. I have all the shields listed and boss weapons listed. I turned my +10 Washing Pole into the Chaos Blade. I killed Leroy and got the Grant and Sanctus. I got the Notched Whip from the phantom that attacks in the Painted World. And I've got all the tail-cut weapons, except DLC ones which don't count. I think I'll look tonight for some other lists and compare them if I have time.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:55:52 PM PST
Jagged Ghost Blade is pretty common I thought, I've thrown away a few of them.

Posted on Nov 7, 2012 2:52:12 PM PST
Jagged Ghost Blade is a common drop...do you have the Ghost Blade?

Posted on Nov 7, 2012 3:38:53 PM PST
Holy Derp I Herped big time on that one. I probably don't have the non jagged. Now I have a reason to go back to New Lon

You don't need the Ghost Blade from the banshee to get the trophy. I never got one, but I have the plat.

You also don't need the Tite catch pole or the Baldur Side Sword.

The jagged ghost blade is required, so are a few other "not so rare" items like the stone giant's items, the giant's items (sold in Anor Londo), Baldur shield (I think), and a bunch of others you can buy.

I finally got it! I had to buy the Giant's Halberd from the Giant Blacksmith. I'd never seen that weapon on any list before last night and didn't realize that I never got one on a drop. I had the Giant's Shield already.
