      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.

            farming after doing the dancer skip19 May 2016 12:55  

            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.

              man-serpents14 May 2016 17:46  

              These are also dropped by all of the man-serpents, as well as titanite chunks and lightening gems (really rarely for those). But there are four man-serpents that are very easy to kill and farm to the right of the ArchDragon Peak bonfire, and they give you a lot of souls too so its good to farm (As long as you have the serpent rings on and an offhand crystal rapier and such)

                  Smouldering lake Large titanite farming.20 Apr 2016 06:57  

                  I've been going through the smouldering lake both to complete the area and to get loot/farm black knight drops and have been finding that practically everything drops titanite shards commonly (More than 50% at the absolute least) and also uncommonly drops large titanite shards. If you want to farm titanite or Large titanite just go through killing the Ghru, fire demons, and also the giant crabs in the lake area. It's incredible.

                    Large titanite shard in road of sacrifices and cathedral of the deep18 Apr 2016 19:27  

                    They do not drop from the Giants in cathedral or lizards. They start dropping AFTER catcombs of carthus, so i am assuming that if you skipped cathedral and came backt o giants then they would drop them. but they only gave me 2 x titanite shard from killing them. might want to update info.
