Proof of a Concord Kept is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3. 

Proof of a Concord Kept


Blood-drained, shrunken ear. Souvenir taken for subduing the guilty.

The knights called the Blades of the Darkmoon punish the guilt-soaked offenders of the Gods and take this proof of their conquest. The earless corpses of the guilty will be left behind as a warning to others, inspiring both fear and respect for the Gods. Such is the eternal mandate of the Dark Sun.

 

Proof of a Concord Kept Usage

 

Proof of a Concord Kept Locations

  • Reward for defeating invaders when defending a Way of Blue member as a Blue Sentinel or Blade of Darkmoon. The item is given each time an invader is banished rather than when you are sent home, so for farming you may want to keep one invader alive to stay in the world.
    • If the invader uses the Black Separation Crystal, a Proof of a Concord Kept is not awarded.
    • If the host challenges the area boss to banish the invader, a Proof of Concord Kept is awarded.
    • If the host (or another phantom) kills the invader before you join the fight, a Proof of Concord Kept is not awarded. 
    • If you assist the host in any way (including just damaging or being damaged by regular enemies far away from the fight), and the red phantom is killed by anyone, a Proof of Concord Kept is awarded.
  • Rare drop from Silver Knights in Anor Londo and Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • One is located on a corpse, in front of the altar at the Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
  • One is located on a corpse in Anor Londo by the Clerics on the left hand side stairs.
  • Two are obtained by using a Proof of a Concord Well Kept, which is rewarded by killing a Red Eye Orb invader in the Aldrich Faithful Covenant, but only if the Blue Spirit is in the Blades of the Darkmoon covenant (their sin status is irrelevant).

 

How to farm Proof of a Concord Kept Guide

  • Get the Gold Serpent ring (+50 discovery), or better if you can get the Gold Serpent ring +3 version (+125 discovery) .
  • Get the Symbol of Avarice (+100 discovery).
  • Get the Crystal Sage Rapier (+50). The weapon needs to be in hand to take effect, you can test this by looking at the item discovery in stats screen. Wielding a second Crystal Sage Rapier will boost item discovery even further.
  • (Optional) Infusing a weapon with a Hollow Gem boosts your luck by up to 5 points depending on your level of hollowing.
  • (Optional) Reallocate attributes at Rosaria with as much luck as possible (40 or more). Remember to have at least 5 tongues to reallocate back after.
  • Get plenty of Rusty Coins from Patches the Unbreakable or kill him for his ashes.
  • If you use all the items you can get over 375 item discovery (or 445 with a gold coin). 
  • Go to the Anor Londo bonfire and kill the two silver knights on the stairs.
  • The drop rate seems to be roughly 1 in 30 knights (3.33%) with 350 item discovery.
  • The drop rate is ~5.75% (16/278) with 500 item discovery.
  • One way to improve the speed of the farming run is to use an INT build (43 + sage ring) and Crystal Soul Spear. Set ATT to about 30 so you can cast 4 CSS - two for each knight. The stagger of CSS allows you to stop their charge. A crystal straight sword of some kind will allow you to dispatch the knights if they block a CSS with their shield. A full run with bonfire reset should take 35-40 seconds for the two knights in the stair at Anor Londo bonfire.
  • The farming run can be further improved by one-hitting the knights with Crystal Soul Spear (and Hidden Body - so that they do not raise their shields). To be able to one-hit the knight, you need: 60 INT, +9 Court Sorcerer's Staff, Magic clutch ring, Young Dragon Ring, and Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring. Note that the staff does not need to be fully upgraded so that, if you decide to re-spec just for the sake of farming, you do not need to waste a Titanite Slab. Make sure you have enough ATT to complete the run. To one-hit the knight: cast Hidden Body, use Rusted coin, cast Steady Chant, then CSS away. Kill two knights, then run back to bonfire to reset. You should be able to complete another cycle before the effect of the Rusted coin finishes, netting you 4 kills/minute.
  • Melee success can also be achieved by using a parry or small shield to parry the first lightning thrust of the spear knight and riposte with a dagger (nearly one shot with hornet ring). Switch to the crystal sabers to finish him off. The sword knight will rush you and is fairly easy to backstab after his rushing lightning attack. 
  • It is faster to farm the two knights on the stairs than to include the red eyed third up on the right, as with two you should be able to average roughly 3.3 knights/min whereas with 3 it is closer to 2.8 or 2.9. 
  • Some players find that the Proofs of Concord drop in batches (e.g. 2-3 in quick succession after killing several knights). Others found that a Proof will typically drop within the first 5 runs whenever the game is started, so they reload the game whenever a Proof is found. 
  • Alternatively, one could rush a low level/low weapon upgrade character to Anri and Horace for the Blue Sentinels covenant item. Most people equip the Way of Blue after they receive it early game. Defending those players in the Undead Settlement may be an easy way to collect these early. Suggested level is 25, weapon upgrade +2.

 

Notes

  • Once you are summoned, the death of a red Aldrich Faithful invader (An Aldrich Faithful invading with a red eye orb) will provide a Proof of a Concord Well Kept. They don't have to be killed by the host or a friendly phantom. You will also get one if they are killed by another invader.

 

Trivia

  • This item makes a return from Dark Souls 1, however, the name was different in that game (being called the Souvenir of Reprisal) and is a brighter hue of blue.

      Let me add this here to the comment section, so some of you dumb-witted morons get it right. YOUR EXPERIENCE with farming these covenant items DOES NOT determine what the drop rate is and isn't. Some get this at 100 Silver Knight kills, some get it at 1000 Silver Knight kills. It's all RNG and you better be worshipping Item Discovery trait. For me? I have done rough 200 runs through this (So ~400 Silver Knights killed) and I got 25 of these. Few came from invasions but I'd say about 20 or them I got as drops. If your luck sucks, you have to just suck it up and keep grinding.

        Actually the droprate is much lower than stated, I've killed well over 200 knights without a single Concord dropping. The "real" droprate is actually 1 in 300.

          My Data: Farming methods in Anor Londo --- My Relevant Stats: Sorcerer 60 INT, Court Staff, CCS, Both Dragoncrests, Magic Clutch, CGS +3, Mimic Head, Rusted Coin. Luck: 423 Description: You can one shot the knights atop the stairs if you have a +10 court sorcerer staff with 60 INT. Using hidden body wastes time, the halberd knight is the only one that could possibly kill you. Begin casting CSS before the knight notices you and before you can lock on. Walk into the lock-on range and you will hit first, there is a good amount of leeway. If the knight gets into position to lunge with its lighting attack then you are too late and need to dodge. The second knight is even easier so long as your cast when you can lock on you will kill it before it even gets close. Your rusted coin is good for two runs, pop it just before you get halfway up the stairs. Other than that its just time. So in conclusion you can speed up your run if you don't use Hidden Body, and with 60 INT and a +10 Court Sorcerer's staff you don't need to Steady Chant (Assuming you have the three rings I mentioned). ---------- My Data: Speculation abounds about how the RNG in the game works. This wiki mentions quitting the game and relaunching as well as people believeing that they get their drops in small groups. Well here's my data. I gained something like 1.6 million souls (Which I just lost because I teleported back to Firelink Shirne and left my game thinking I was safe, forgetting that I was wearing the Symbol of Avarice) Just farming Normally I got a drop after: 5 - 20 - 16 - 25 - 4 - 1 - 4 - 8 - 36 - 41 - 14 Then I switched to another method, after each drop I would go for 2 more rounds to see if they dropped in clusters. In between each trial I closed and opened the game.: 4 - 2 - 9 - 7 - 20 In none of these trials did I get another one to drop after getting one. Then I switched to just closing and reopening the game: 3 - 3 - 4 - 9 - 7 - 20 -9 - 4 - 8 - 5 -13 So maybe its just my small sample size but it did really seem for me that closing and reopening the game helped. Anyway I'm going to go shoot myself in the foot for losing all those souls. -Aseptimir

            A small tip how to get fast concords, although some of you might not like it. Make a new character and equip blue sentinels around levels 20-50 and stay at that level until you have your 30 proofs. Those tend to have a significantly denser frequency of summons. Works for watchdogs for levels 15-30. Saves you grinding hundreds/thousands of mobs but you gotta finish the game again.

              With only Fingers and Swordgrass remaining (and 8 of these bastards left), this is THE worst one yet. Shackles dropped faster. Also, the rusted and gold coins seem to make no difference, items drop just the same with 325 item discovery as they do with over 400 for me. I was going for all 3 of the Silver nights for the first 20 of these, then read the note about it being faster to just do the first 2 so I started doing that. I've only noticed the reload difference after actually having the game closed for quite a while but not so much to just reload after each one. I just hope the drop rates for the final 2 aren't as bad, at least I only need 10 fingers.

                Hey there (puts on cheap suit), would any of you nice folks like to trade your 30Proof of Concords Kept for my 50 sets of Silver Knight Armour? Disclaimer: Silver Knight Armour may be stained with the sweat and tears of rage.

                      What’s the best way to get these at high SL? I’ve tried farming for a few hours with no luck and can’t seem to get summmoned. Am I missing something?

                        Everyone whines about how hard it is to get these. 1. Equip Blue Sentinels and do whatever until summomed, this worked got me with a level 125 and a 364 with +10 weapons so meta and over level are fine from my experience. 2. Equip blade of Darkmoon, ok so this one requires you to be a little better at the game since Blades of the Darkmoon seem to in a world until they're target is dead whereas a Sentinel can stay as long as there is an invader and the Sentinels seem to have a higher summon rate (I'm usually summoned before a Darkmoon and when I'm invad(er/ed) I usually see Sentinels before Darkmoons It's really not that hard since the area after Pontiff is heavily used for Fight Clubs and Honour Duels not to mention Ganks and it's somewhat late game meaning lots of covenant invasions especially Mads and Aldriches

                          This is the only Covenant item that I've never, ever, not even once managed to obtain by farming Silver knights. All I always get are Titanite shards and a*****load of armor pieces.

                            Spent about 3 hours grinding with 300+ item discovery, got something like 5 of these and a million souls. Got summoned maybe 6 times but those yielded probably only one item due to summons to battles that had ended and one weird situation where the host and invader were playing a game of their own, trying to get blues to pick up some item... The blues are the worst covenants in the game. None of the others come even close.

                              I guess noone else gets this lucky, but I just had a blast! I was summoned via the covenant and in that world (anor londo) the host must have used the dried fingers, because he was constantly invaded and I stayed (because there was no situation where there was no invader present) for 8 invasions. I made 8 proofs of a concord kept in under 5 minutes. Then the streak was cut and I was sent home. If someone knows how to do this systematically, this might be a good way to farm these items. Also: FROMSOFTWARE should finally change one of the two covenants to active mode, i.e. invade invaders worlds to punish them or invade the worlds of the invaded without the need of them having a special covenant. This covenant could be so much fun... playing police in the game. =D
