Proof of a Concord Kept is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3. 

Proof of a Concord Kept


Blood-drained, shrunken ear. Souvenir taken for subduing the guilty.

The knights called the Blades of the Darkmoon punish the guilt-soaked offenders of the Gods and take this proof of their conquest. The earless corpses of the guilty will be left behind as a warning to others, inspiring both fear and respect for the Gods. Such is the eternal mandate of the Dark Sun.

 

Proof of a Concord Kept Usage

 

Proof of a Concord Kept Locations

  • Reward for defeating invaders when defending a Way of Blue member as a Blue Sentinel or Blade of Darkmoon. The item is given each time an invader is banished rather than when you are sent home, so for farming you may want to keep one invader alive to stay in the world.
  • Rare drop from Silver Knights in Anor Londo and Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • One is located on a corpse, in front of the altar at the Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • One is located on a corpse in Anor Londo by the Clerics on the left hand side stairs.
  • Two are obtained by using a Proof of a Concord Well Kept, which is rewarded by killing a Red Eye Orb invader in the Aldrich Faithful Covenant, but only if the Blue Spirit is in the Blades of the Darkmoon covenant (their sin status is irrelevant).

 

How to farm Proof of a Concord Kept Guide

  • Get the Gold Serpent ring (+50 discovery), or better if you can get the Gold Serpent ring +3 version (+125 discovery) .
  • Get the Symbol of Avarice (+100 discovery).
  • Get the Crystal Sage Rapier (+50). The weapon needs to be in hand to take effect, you can test this by looking at the item discovery in stats screen. Wielding a second Crystal Sage Rapier will boost item discovery even further.
  • (Optional) Infusing a weapon with a Hollow Gem boosts your luck by up to 5 points depending on your level of hollowing.
  • (Optional) Reallocate attributes at Rosaria with as much luck as possible (40 or more). Remember to have at least 5 tongues to reallocate back after.
  • Get plenty of Rusty Coins from Patches the Unbreakable or kill him for his ashes.
  • If you use all the items you can get over 375 item discovery (or 445 with a gold coin). 
  • Go to the Anor Londo bonfire and kill the two silver knights on the stairs.
  • The drop rate seems to be roughly 1 in 30 knights (3.33%) with 350 item discovery.
  • The drop rate is ~5.75% (16/278) with 500 item discovery.
  • One way to improve the speed of the farming run is to use an INT build (43 + sage ring) and Crystal Soul Spear. Set ATT to about 30 so you can cast 4 CSS - two for each knight. The stagger of CSS allows you to stop their charge. A crystal straight sword of some kind will allow you to dispatch the knights if they block a CSS with their shield. A full run with bonfire reset should take 35-40 seconds for the two knights in the stair at Anor Londo bonfire.
  • The farming run can be further improved by one-hitting the knights with Crystal Soul Spear (and Hidden Body - so that they do not raise their shields). To be able to one-hit the knight, you need: 60 INT, +9 Court Sorcerer's Staff, Magic clutch ring, Young Dragon Ring, and Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring. Note that the staff does not need to be fully upgraded so that, if you decide to re-spec just for the sake of farming, you do not need to waste a Titanite Slab. Make sure you have enough ATT to complete the run. To one-hit the knight: cast Hidden Body, use Rusted coin, cast Steady Chant, then CSS away. Kill two knights, then run back to bonfire to reset. You should be able to complete another cycle before the effect of the Rusted coin finishes, netting you 4 kills/minute.
  • Melee success can also be achieved by using a parry or small shield to parry the first lightning thrust of the spear knight and riposte with a dagger (nearly one shot with hornet ring). Switch to the crystal sabers to finish him off. The sword knight will rush you and is fairly easy to backstab after his rushing lightning attack. 
  • It is faster to farm the two knights on the stairs than to include the red eyed third up on the right, as with two you should be able to average roughly 3.3 knights/min whereas with 3 it is closer to 2.8 or 2.9. 
  • Some players find that the Proofs of Concord drop in batches (e.g. 2-3 in quick succession after killing several knights). Others found that a Proof will typically drop within the first 5 runs whenever the game is started, so they reload the game whenever a Proof is found. 
  • Alternatively, one could rush a low level/low weapon upgrade character to Anri and Horace for the Blue Sentinels covenant item. Most people equip the Way of Blue after they receive it early game. Defending those players in the Undead Settlement may be an easy way to collect these early. Suggested level is 25, weapon upgrade +2.

 

Notes

  • Once you are summoned, the death of a red Aldrich Faithful invader (An Aldrich Faithful invading with a red eye orb) will provide a Proof of a Concord Well Kept. They don't have to be killed by the host or a friendly phantom. You will also get one if they are killed by another invader.

 

Trivia

  • This item makes a return from Dark Souls 1, however, the name was different in that game (being called the Souvenir of Reprisal) and is a brighter hue of blue.

      Vordt's GH with 66 STR is the fastest way for me to deal the silver k***hts. Just pop perseverance and hit them. They'll die in 2 hits if they didn't block your attack.

          Ummm. Doesnt make sense. Played this game since day 1, keep coming back for fun. If i get myself 400+ find, i never get one. If i stay around 200 find, i can get 3 in a row sometimes. I have spent days waiting to be called (almost never) and with 400+ luck, never found but maybe two a day. Common drops are the armor set and shards with rare chance for concord. Uping find ups all rares. Including a slight boost to the commons. With high luck all player is doing is uping ALL drops which in turn makes concord eliminated (nearly). Trust me. Try it. Get yourself round 200 and leave it there. The commons still stay around the same, but that luck rate will greatly open the roll for the concord. Will turn 48 hours into 6. Never fails. Prove me wrong, good luck, happy gaming.

            Give up on farming this, just start a new game + and play through the game while waiting to be summoned, will be more fun and probably take about the same time or even less

                I wish to take a moment of remembrance for Silver knight battalion #436 KIA count at 7409. Your 30 proofs were put to good use.

                  If you plan on farming them, I recommend these ranges : SL 20 +1 or (even less +0), SL 30 +3 (also works for watchdogs) , SL 40 +4, and I personally got last 20 from SL 60 +6 (also works for aldritch faithful).

                  Be warned that you will encounter A LOT of twinks up to SL 30, so either twink yourself or just go to higher levels where it's evened out. Depending on the time don't expect frequent summons, so feel free to PvE or farm. Personally, heavy weapons that create good estus trades are very good and a good weapon to catch rolls/pussying out invaders is nice. A good parry with hornet ring might also be lethal, just don't use weapons that do dark damage for ripostes.

                      I know the game is ancient now but if you spec int and faith and use a dark curved greatsword with the dark clutch ring you should be able to 2 shot the knights and will interrupt their attacks in 1 hit no matter the attack. Works well for me. Averaging 1 in 10 runs on ng2

                        I honestly suggest start a new character and equip the covenant (blue sentinels or moon blades) as soon as possible and with low lvl, then play the game normally, i was trying farming these things but like in 1 hour i just got one *****ing proof. I wasnt willing to waste more time farming, and honestly it went better. The lvls wich i was summoned more frequently were around 30, 60, 70 and i am just 10 proofs left, i may get them in cycles, but that is my recommendation.

                          Is it possible to farm these with 3 players? Quiet location host,invader and a darkmoon. Rinse and repeat. PSN trastuit

                            if you all had equipped blue sentinels thoughout the game there would be less whining about farming proofs here...and early invasion trolling. Not saying this farming bs is without flaws but why make things harder for yourself than necessary? We are no bloody casuals. Start to think finaly and make smart decissions.

                              The farm guide it's a bunch of bull. You don't need to respec and go 43 INT etc. or something silly like that. Just use a +8 dagger or higher (I used a dark infused but probably anything will do) with some reasonable DEX/STR (mine was 18/40, probably a lot lower will do) + hornets rings and you should be able to one shot the knights with backstabs. Use hidden body at the start of the stairs, run through the first knight (the one with the spear) and backstab the second one, then run behind the other one and backstab him too. Rest at the bonfire. Repeat.

                                It took me about 1-2 weeks to farm these, and it was pretty much worthless besides the trophy. I don't even use Darkmoon Blade, I use Carthus Flame Arc.

                                    The drop rate for these seems really inconsistent and strange. I spent 2 hours farming and got 2 proofs (offline, restarting game after 20ish runs). Yet i tried again another day, one dropped on the first attempt (i didn't restart) and they were like almost guaranteed drops, dropping once every 5-10 runs. Item discovery was about 350.

                                      Honestly fk this, countless hours wasted just for a trophy, rest of the covenent items are easy af compared to this... like srsly I farmed 10 pale tongues in 10-20min. And it feels like it took me 10-20 days to farm these. Just wanted to rant about this to feel a little bit better :D whoever is farming these goodluck to you.

                                        why go INT when you can go 60 fth and use tears along with poise cast. Knights are weak to lightning plus sunlight spear if hit point blank it will damage twice

                                          I got 3 in 100 kills while getting roughly 30 of each armor piece and 11 shields with 515 item discovery 99 luck in NG. I heard drop rates increase if you go to higher ng cycles but it's a pain to kill these guys if they have more health so not worth just to test this theory. I got summoned 3 times during it too but first one host insta died when I got summoned and the other 2 were dc from the start lmao although my character was level 136. All the summons were to ringed city DLC NG+.

                                          Now I will try another 100 kills but with the quit and reload method. Last time I was getting like one proof per 4-5 kills and got 5 proofs before I started counting and it all happened after I got summoned successfully so load screen may have something to do with reseting the RNG.
