Location/Where to Find
- Dropped by the Cathedral Knight situated atop the x-shaped rafters above the Cathedral of the Deep. To get here, head to the "Cleansing Chapel" Bonfire, and exit the shortcut on the left hand side of the room. Take the elevator up, and climb the ladder just outside and to the left of the crossbow-wielding undead. Behind the deacon in this room will be a broken wall. Go there and then drop down on top of the beam 'walkways', and run all the way up. To your right, the first entrance inside will be just beside where the thrall climbs up, and is typically guarded by a patrolling large halberd-wielding undead. Inside, the crossbow will drop from the singular knight wielding the weapon on the left side of the rafters.
- The easiest way to farm for this item is to equip any bow, but preferably one with decent range; start from Rosaria's Bedchamber bonfire, run past the mangrubs, but kill the mangrub mage next to the lever or he'll shoot at you. Walk about 3/4 across the bridge that Patches lowered, then turn and face the direction you came from. From this position, look up and to the right, the knight that drops the crossbow should be visible behind the edge of the chandelier; shoot him in the head, and he'll fall off, and if you can see an item drop jump down and grab it. The silver cat ring is a good idea for this, as it mitigates fall damage. It's a very painful drop, and you're probably wearing Symbol of Avarice to boost item discovery rates.
