For other uses, see Boss Soul Items and Boss Soul Items (Dark Souls II).

Boss Soul Items are weapons and spells that are obtained from using the souls of various bosses and mini-bosses. Also referred to as Soul Transposition, the process allows access to equipment that is generally more powerful than those obtained through other means.

Accessing Soul TranspositionEdit

Soul Transposition is done by speaking to Ludleth of Courland. In order to access the service, the player must first provide him with the Transposing Kiln, which is obtained by defeating the Curse-rotted Greatwood in Undead Settlement.

Once these conditions are met, Ludleth will now be available as a merchant for trading various boss souls, normally along with a soul cost, in order to access certain weapons and spells that are otherwise inaccessible.

Transposition rewardsEdit

Each soul is capable of transposing into at least two different rewards. Care should be taken when deciding which one is chosen, as only one soul from each boss can be obtained per playthrough.

NotesEdit

  • Once Ludleth dies in the ritual to access the Kiln of the First Flame, the player may access soul transposition by interacting with his ashes. However, this will only work if he was given the Transposing Kiln prior to the ritual, if this is not the case then the transposition service will remain unavailable for the remainder of the playthrough.
  • When in possession of both Lothric's Holy Sword and Lorian's Greatsword, talking to Ludleth will unlock the option to combine the two into the Twin Princes' Greatsword through dialogue. This will consume the two weapons in the process at no soul cost.
