  • For those wishing to farm Titanite Shards, be aware that merely progressing further into the game will cause you to start tripping over piles of them. In an effort to farm 30 Proof of a Concord Kept, I managed to inadvertently pick up enough Titanite Shards to completely fill up my inventory AND storage. Silver Knight enemies nearly always drop either a Titanite Shard or Large Titanite Shard each kill. Sometimes multiple of them. My farm location was Anor Londo bonfire in the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley area.
