Boss Soul Weapons in Dark Souls 3 are obtained by Soul Transposition. You may also obtain spells and rings from them. To transpose a soul, defeat the respective boss, then take the soul to Ludleth of Courland. He sits on the mid-left throne (looking at Lothric's throne while standing at Firelink) This mechanic is only available after defeating the Curse-Rotted Greatwood, and recieving the Transposing Kiln and giving it to Ludleth.

      I'm probably getting to this late, but honestly, it should probably be said, Valonheart may not br transposed, but either way, it is a "Boss Weapon", and the only one of it's kind where you only get it from beating that boss, so unless you want an entire new page on "weapons dropped by bosses", it's just fine where it's at. Again, most of the weapons here have been transposed from boss souls, and that's fine, let it be, the people who made the page knew what they were doing

        Also, Valorheart should not be here. You do not get a soul from the Gravekeeper fight and it is upgraded with Twinkling Titanite not Titanite Scales. So make up your mind people, is this a Boss Weapons page or a Soul Items page.

          Honestly, this whole page should just be updated to Soul-Transposed Items and should have all rings, weapons, spells, etc. that you get from Soul Transposition People come to a wiki to get information, not to miss out on some information or leave with more questions than answers.

            yall saying rosaria isnt a boss so the healing spell from her soul shouldnt be on here but why is the soul of a demon here in that case

              Neither is the demon in the Catacombs but his soul weapons are still here while the Stray Demon's things aren't. What qualifies for this page seems to be as arbitrary as the game itself.

                I think the Stray Demon only counts as a mini boss, he doesn't have a health bar or "arena" that you can't leave

                  Crystal Sage Rapier's int scaling actually gives it better magic AR than Crystal Magic Weapon o.o and the physical part is so irrelevant that even at 7str 12dex my sorceress was doing 440-510 r2s and 900-1000 criticals. Which actually makes it almost as strong as a Rapier with magic damage (either CMW or Crystal infusion) (CMW on an int build actually did only like 50 more damage, and did considerably less on charged r2 and criticals) I mean I'm sure the rapier move set probably isn't going to entice PvP-ers away from Crucifix of the Mad King or UGS hyper armor, but this thing does more damage than it almost should

                    Some of these weapons should be allowed to be buffed. Like the Crystal Sage's Rapier or Arstor's Spear. No one really uses them, nor do I see them in PVP.
