The Ancient Dragon Soul is a boss soul in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Soul of the great ancient dragon that stands magnificently, deep within the shrine. This powerful being stands and waits, for whoever may visit him.
Use the dragon soul, created by those who peered into the essence of the soul, to acquire numerous souls, or to create something of great worth.


It can be found in the Dragon Memories, which can only be accessed through The Duke's Dear Freja's boss room on the player's second visit. There will be a crystal at the back of Freja's cave; interact with it and the player will enter the memory. Interact with the dragon's head to obtain the soul.

To access the memory, the player must first be sure to have spoken to the Ancient Dragon on top of the Dragon Shrine and obtained the Ashen Mist Heart.


Consume for 75,000 souls or trade with Weaponsmith Ornifex to acquire the Curved Dragon Greatsword.
