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 dark spirit is killed by another player, a Proof of Concord Kept is awarded. However, if the dark spirit kills themselves (i.e jumping off a cliff/ledge), a proof will not be awarded.
  • Extremely 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.

      Guys, please just equip blue sentinels the moment you get it in Crucifixion Woods. If you are decent at PvP you'll have minimum 10 concords by the time you reach Anor Londo, it'll save you a lot of time (and pain).

        I know it says in the wiki, but I just want confirmation. If an invader uses the black crystal, do the blues not get the rewards? Thanks in advance.

          Hi, I discovered that the thing with reloading the game as was mentioned on this wiki, works better than one would believe. Try that and good luck!

              yes, indeed. it is called anor londo entrance. where the transitory place of the lords of concord kepts converge. in venturing to the staircase, the ashen ones discovered the truth of the farm strats. the covenant fades... and the souls fanbase go without getting the 30. when the ember hosts are threatened, the darkmoon comes, unearthing the players from their farms, the one who doesnt want to die to get the item, the ganker squad , and the SL802 player with dragonslayer axe... , only in truth, the players will abandon their 100% duty, and the invasors will rise, nameless, accursed etiquette players , unfit even to be hollows, and so it is, the people seeketh the covenant rewards...

                    I got 26 of those in ~4 hours. 425 Item Discovery, 40/40 INT/FTH, Affinity + Great Soul Dregs (this combo one-shots the knights in NG+), farmed offline (don't know if it increases drop rate). Use the Izalith staff and all sorcery boosting rings for max dark damage, the knights are very weak to it.

                      I only needed 10 and I got around 1.5 million souls and probably 10+ hours to get 6. The game gives you 2 so that's 8. Then I was by miracle summoned to a fight and it was a warzone between like 4 people. I didn't even found them but the Host killed both of them and I got the last 2! Praise the Sun!

                        This drop rate is insane. I've got like 3.5 million souls, enough silver knight gear to fill up the abyss and only 13 proofs. That's enough to make a grown man hollow.

                          the real reason anri and horace are hollow is because theyve gone mad from farming these ****ing dried blue ears

                            These are harder to come by than PS5s. It’s ridiculous. Miyazaki, this is unforgivable. It’s a waste of time. A currency which can only ever be spent and never recouped. I’ve spent 8 hours and I’ve got 20 of them.

                                Got lucky and it took "only" 5 hours to grind them all. And then I accidentally upgraded a special weapon to +3 to +4 when I was wanting to stay at 60+6. Time to do it all over again on a new character.

                                  Literally a thousand runs in (two stacks of rusted coins) and they've dropped 11 for me. I call utter BS on the drop rates. I'm at 425 the ENTIRE time

                                    These things took me the longest time to farm. Ever. However, it was worth it.
                                    I. Enjoyed. Every. Second. Of. It. I was one with the staircase. I'm the staircase.

                                      Been farming these for around 3 hours now and only got 14. God, I thought I'd be done by this point now with a symbol of avarice, gold serpent ring+3 and rusted coin.

                                      I've fought those 2 knights on the stairs so much that at some point I might as well invite them to drink siegbräu with me and Seigward. I leave here my big **** YOU to Myiazaki and the DS3 team for making these drops so unbearingly rare

                                        Finally got the 30! It took me 258 runs (yes, I counted), but I got it. I was using symbol of avarice, 99 luck, crystal sage rapier and gold serpent ring +3, yet my drop rate felt like 1 once every 10 runs. I rarely got streaks and the RNG screwed me over every chance it had.

                                        For anyone interested, it took me 5-6 hours to farm these. If you're brave or crazy enough to try it, my advice is getting a good spotify playlist (I suggest Sabaton) and a jug of water.
