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), even better if you get Gold Serpent ring +2 version (+100 item discovery) .
  • Get the Symbol of Avarice.
  • Get the Crystal Sage Rapier (+50 item discovery). 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 350 item discovery (or 400 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.

      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.

        There is nothing more frustrating than having the covenant on and getting summoned once in maybe a handful of hours of play. Yet, when I'm an Aldrich Faithful, I invade on a dime.

        • 05 Feb 2017 08:38  

          You *sometimes* get proof of concord well kept from Aldritch Faithful invaders, and sometimes you don't. It's frustrating.

          Anyways, I get them sometimes, so I'm editing that part.

            Im on Ng+5 i just need the stupid miracle so i can platinum the game. Ive farmed for days not getting a single one to drop and hardly getting summoned. Is that hard for Fromsoft to fix the game or atleast add the blue eye orb again so i can invade the guilty? Ive spent way to much time on just farming the knights. Its absoulty mind boggaling that they hate this cov, the others are far more eaiser to rank up.

              I was reading through the comments, and I didn't see anything about a host entering a boss room. I thought I remembered something saying that if you help the host get to the boss room as a blade of the dark moon, your duty is fulfilled and you get a proof. Please correct me if I am wrong, but in that case, all you would need would be a friend that pledges to way of blue, who hasn't killed the area boss to use a dried finger. If you make it to the fog wall, your duty should be complete, and your friend can just use a homeward bone to continue the process. Again, Please correct me if I am wrong.

                They should reward these for victory in Undead Match if you're BoDM. Or any covenant. It's not fair Sunlights get Medals for invading people, it's completely counter-intuitive to the sunlight covenant, on the other and we got the BoDM where you can't do *****.

                • 21 Dec 2016 03:56  

                  I never get summoned as a Blue (Blade of the Darkmoon or Blue Sentinel) okay that's a lie I've been summoned twice first time I lost, 2nd time the host was dead as I arrived... I have 299 discovery and have killed the 3 Silver Knights in Anor Londo so many times over 4+ hours and have gotten 1 proof whereas killing the Ghru for Swordgrass or whatever it's called with low discovery (about 110 discovery) I've managed to get about 7 over 2+ hours!

                    I just watched my fiance get summoned as a blue to farron, where she killed 3 watchdogs and didn't get anything from them. There was a red phantom who when killed gave one, but do you just not get them from killing watchdogs?

                      TIP: Equip the Blue Sentinels Covenant item or the Darkmoon Blades during your farm session. If you get summoned and you play it right, you have a guaranteed Concord Kept. Protect your Ember at all costs. If you get summoned during your farming, and you see the message, quickly change your gear to the proper PvP instead of the farming. You'll be ready when you get summoned. Good luck!

                        Someone please change the bit that says you get a proof of concord well kept from aldritch covenant guys, because we know that's not true, and people start complaining when they dont get one. It's from invaders who have sinned.

                          I have 474(99 luck, rapier, rusty coin, gold serpent+1, avarice) on a ng+. Got all 30 in 3-4hours and i made pitstop to get average of concord kept. so for each 1kk~1.2kk souls, always gave me 4 to 6.

                            Funny story, i was farming the knights on NG++ with 410 discovery and for almost 20 runs (×3 knights) no a single drop so i removed the SoA with only 310 discovery and bam! Just like that i got a drop on the first knight :)

                                I killed Yorshka my first playthrough for the chime. In NG+, when I went to the tower, there was a fogwall. There is no mention of this anywhere - at least after 45 minutes web searches, I couldn't find anything. I had farmed 15 proofs and I was miserable that I couldn't turn them in. I also aggro'd Sirris in this playthrough. So I went to see Velka. I had committed no sin, but I did reverse the hollowing and it worked - Yorshka granted me entry on my next visit. Hope that helps anyone else staring at the fogwall, trying to beat it down.
