MASTER OF SORCERIES
Trophy Guide

Dark Souls III Intro pic
There are a total of 34 sorceries you will need to acquire as you make your way through Lordran, all of which can be acquired in one playthrough thankfully. The majority of the sorceries can be purchased from Orbeck of Vinheim, 2 more can only be acquired from Karla. You will also need to have defeated the Curse-Rotted Greatwood in the Undead Settlement to be able to trade boss souls with Ludleth in Firelink Shrine
You will need to meet and advance Anri of Astora’s questline through to the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, Church of Yorshka bonfire following some very specific steps (detailed below)
Several sorceries can be found throughout the world and finally one is available from the Aldrich Faithful Covenant
Here is how you can get Orbeck and Karla to sell you their sorceries

Orbeck of Vinheim

Please Note ~ You will need a minimum of 10 Intelligence before Orbeck will work with you
Orbeck can be found from the Road of SacrificesCrucifixion Woods bonfire, head through towards the Crystal Sage boss fight, taking a left as soon as you cross the small bridge. Make your way around then up the stairs to find Orbeck. Speak with him then select Make A Promise to have Orbeck travel to Firelink Shrine who can be found down to the right of Andre the Blacksmith

Karla

Another NPC that you will need to find in order for her to sell you her sorceries can be found in the lowest level of Irithyll Dungeon where the Jailers are congregating near the cells. Karla is found by going to the last cell on the right then head back on yourself down the passageway pass the Jailer to find her cell
To open it, you will need to go across the Toxic swamp in the Profaned Capital, make your way around the rooftop and up the stairs, then head round to the left where at the end of the corridor you will find the Jailer’s Key Ring on a corpse. Go back to Karla’s cell, open it then speak with her agreeing to Offer Help and then select the dialogue option, Save her Nonetheless where she will then travel to Firelink Shrine, to find Karla, head down the stairs to the left of Andre the Blacksmith, she is in an alcove underneath these stairs. Speak with her and ask to learn Dark Sorceries, allowing you to purchase her sorceries

Anri of Astora

Please Note ~ ensure you follow the steps on any playthrough where you are not going for the Usurpation Of Fire ending
Anri’s questline, if completed up to a certain point, will net you the Chameleon sorcery but only if you follow a strict set of steps, which are
From the Undead SettlementFoot of the High Wall bonfire, head down the stairs, take a eft then near the end over to the right will be Yoel of Londor, speak with him and Accept His Service where he will travel to Firelink Shrine. Next you will need to Draw Out True Strength with Yoel which is done by dying 5 times, allowing him to give you 5 free levels. Once you have done so you then need to fast travel away to any area that isn’t in the Cemetery of Ash, such as the Undead SettlementFoot of the High Wall bonfire then go back to Firelink Shrine where you will find Yoel dead and a new NPCYuria of Londor will be nearby. Speak with her to begin her questline
You then need to speak with Anri and Horace at the Road of Sacrifices, Halfway Fortress bonfire (they’re standing to the left of the bonfire) then after defeating the Crystal Sage in the Road of Sacrifices, head to Firelink Shrine and speak with them before defeating the Abyss Watchers
Make your way to the Catacombs of Carthus through to the rickety bridge you need to cross to fight High Lord Wolnir. Once across this bridge, hit it where it will fall creating a ladder, take it down and head out into Smouldering Lake. Stick to the right wall and go down the passageway to find Horace, either kill him or leave him, it’s your choice
After you have discovered Horace, go back to the rickety bridge and take the pathway up leading above the bridge, speak with Anri ensuring you DO NOT tell her where Horace is then continue through the game to the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley
When there, head to the Church of Yorshka bonfire and attack and kill the “statue” which is actually the Pilgrim of Londor in the left corner from when you enter the Church, you can then collect the Chameleon sorcery from the corpse

Additional Sorceries

Finally, except for the World Loot sorceries, you will also need to join the Aldrich Faithful covenant (click the button below to go to the main game guide then search for the Covenant: Aldrich Faithful guide), you will then need to, after joining the covenant, ascend it to Rank 1 which requires you to offer 10 Human Dregs that can be acquired from the Devout of the Deep enemies which are found at the top of the ladder from the covenant out to the right. Increase your item discovery to make this quicker. Once you have 10 Human Dregs, take them back to Archdeacon Mcdonnel, increasing the Aldrich Faithful covenant to Rank 1 where you will then receive the Great Deep Soul
In addition to needing to meet the requirements above, you will also need to collect 4 Scrolls throughout Lordran which will need to be given to Orbeck of Vinheim who will then allow you to buy additional sorceries
Here are the locations of all 4 Scrolls and the sorceries each Scroll unlocks
