      When you kill the giants in the Cathedral of the Deep, make sure to pick up those large titanite shards right away. They'll despawn if you leave the area or reload the game. Kind of stupid when you consider items are usually in the place of the enemy you killed, such as when swordmaster falls off the cliff, you can still get the uchigatana.

        3 are dropped by the Gravetender Greatwolf each time you fight it before it's boss fight. It spawns until killed at the entrance and the exit to the millwood ruins, for 6 large shards total.

          The Lothric Knight walking away from the Lothric Castle is by far the easiest one. If you've come that far he's not too much trouble, and he drops the Lothric set as well as occasional Sunlight Medals.

            How unexpected, Fextra not including information. There are many large shards in Ashes of Ariandel. I believe its 1 from each large wolf, 2 from crystal lizards, and one drops everytime from the Corvian Knight located in the Corvian Settlement.

              You can farm these 100% drop rate from the first Black Crow with dual claws you encounter in DLC1, it respawns and you can just kill it over and over again.

                The Farron Follower's in Andriel DLC can drop them, though the drop chance seems pretty low. Still might be worth it if you want to upgrade your weapon to +6 before the Abyss watchers.

                  I'm probably being anal but when it keeps saying dragon I want to rewrite to say drake because dragons and drakes are two entirely separate things especially in dark souls but I don't know how to change it.

                    If you summon the master in order to cheese the dancer fight and power a weapon to level +9 one of the hardest part is getting large titanite. I found that the first swordsman guarding the door at the Lothric Castle bonfire has a retardedly good droprate (I managed to get 8 in a row at one point) as well as dropping the usual set items. Combined with the fact that you can reset after killing him near instantly if done right it is a great way to get them early.
