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.
  • 1 is located on a corpse, in front of the altar at the Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • 1 is located on a corpse in Anor Londo by the Clerics on the left hand side stairs.
  • 2 are obtained by using a Proof of a Concord Well Kept, which is rewarded from killing a player who has sinned in their world (their covenant is irrelevant).

 

How to farm Proof of a Concord Kept guide

  • Get the Gold Serpent ring (+50 item discovery), or even better if you get Gold Serpent ring +3 version (+125) .
  • Get the Symbol of Avarice. (+100)
  • Get the Crystal Sage Rapier (+50). The weapon needs to be wielded in hand to take effect, you can test this by looking at the item discovery in stats screen. Wielding another Crystal Sage Rapier will boost item discovery even further.
  • Infusing a weapon with a Hollow Gem boosts your luck by up to 5 points depending on your level of hollow-ification.
  • (Optional) Reallocate attributes at Rosaria into as much luck as possible. 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.
  • Fastest way to get these is to rush a low level character to Anri for the blue sentinels cov item before killing treeboss and not leveling up a weapon much, you'll get nonstop invasions. (Blue covenants are currently broken for some people as of May 2016 so this is not true).
  • After experimenting with improving the speed of the farming run, it seems that an INT build (43 + sage ring) and Crystal Soul Spear is the quickest way to do this.  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.
  • It is more beneficial to farm the 2 knights at the top of the stairs than all 3, as with 2, you should be able to average roughly 3.3 knights/min whereas with 3 it is closer to 2.8 or 2.9.

      A lot of comments and suggestions on how to effectively kill the 2 knights on the stairs ... Is good and all, but, tbh it's really really really easy to obliterate the two in 20-30 seconds with good gear. The one and only issue is the horrendous drop rate. And From does not want people to use CheatEngine ....

        For anyone who is having trouble farming them, just use your strongest weapon. There is a almost-fixed pattern when the Silver Knights aggro to you, once the first one (the SK Spear one), he will ALMOST ALWAYS open with his Lightning-charged lunging thrust (which is incredibly easy to dodge even by walk-stepping to the side while using a Rusted Coin or estus). So as soon as you see him lightning-charge his weapon just strafe around and backstab him and set up a held two-handed strong attack with your weapon as he starts to stand back up or use a weapon skill (if viable, I use Wolf Knight's GS' Weapon Skill after backstabbing him). It is essential though that the first knight is dealt with quickly as the Straight Sword Silver Knight will approach shortly after, opening with his lightning-charge slam attack. Simply do the same thing as before, you can just strafe around during his attack and backstab him (just watch his movements and keep sticking to his back if he continues moving after slamming his sword down and just backstab him once he stops setting up the slam). Alternatively, Getting 27 STR (or 22 with Knight's Ring on) and two-handing the Dragonslayer Greataxe will just kill each silver knight in one-hit with its Weapon Skill, making it an useful weapon for farming these items.

            I need just a few of the covenant items for Platinum. Would someone able to trade for the Wolf Ring, Warmth, and Darkmoon Blade/Ring? I have Sacred Oath, Great Lightning Spear, Great Deep Soul, and the Obscuring Ring if anyone needs those. PSN: Dragonfire2323

              Anyone here who still has 13 of these lying around? I've been farming for 2 hours and only found 2 proofs. I'm going to go crazy at this rate. This is on the Steam version btw.

                Blue Sentinels and Darkmoon are a f**king joke! I have a 14 hour save that i speed ran to Blue Sentinels early game. In that entire 14 hours, I've only had SIX covenant summons. 3, the host literally let the invader lure them into mobs and died, 1 the host returned me home as soon as i was summoned, 1 I died through my own fault, and thelast, i killed two invading Aldrich Faithful but I got F**K all for it. The match making AND the reward system for these are a complete joke. I've adored these games since Demon's Souls ant this mechanic is leaving From's souls series with a massively bitter taste. It just makes no sense

                  They only drop Well Kepts if that Faithful or Dark Spirit was a sinner...or am I mistaken?
                  So if the Faithful isn't a sinner = no Well Kept. But if they are = Well Kept? Pretty sure the same would work for the Dark Spirit.
