Wisdom of a Sage
Acquire all sorceries.

Guide Created By ~ Griffin

Here is the Dark Souls Remastered Wisdom Of A Sage Trophy Guide
Sorceries can make Dark Souls a lot easier for some as they allow you to cause significant damage at range
You will need a staff to equip a sorcery
Ensure you level intelligence to become more adept at casting sorceries, you can then attune spells at a bonfire then use the spell for a given amount of times before the charge will run out meaning you need to find a bonfire to replenish the uses
There are a total of 23 sorceries in Dark Souls Remastered, the majority of which are purchasable from 4 NPCs you will encounter as you make your way through the game
The 4 NPCs are

Griggs Of Vinheim

Griggs Of Vinheim can be found in the Lower Undead Burg area, you need to buy the Residence Key from the merchant in the Undead Burg, then make your way down the stairs towards the Capra Demon boss fight, take a right, use the Residence Key on the second door on the left, speak to Griggs, he will then go to Firelink Shrine where you can purchase his sorceries

Ingward, The Guardian Of The Seal

Ingward be found atop the building in New Londo Ruins, he only has one sorcery, and can be very tricky to get to, continue through the New Londo Ruins until just before you lower the water, go around the back of the building you’ll be in then up the ladder, defeat all of the enemies in the area, then interact with Ingward, if there is one enemy left, he won’t speak to you so ensure you clear them all out

Dusk Of Oolacile

She can be a tricky NPC to find, firstly you need to defeat the Hydra in the Darkroot Basin (use magic to have a much easier time of the fight, or wait for the heads to strike then melee them systematically until the Hydra falls) then defeat the Golden Crystal Golem, this will free Dusk of Oolacile, however, to purchase her sorceries, you need to summon her.
Her summon sign can be found in front of a boulder, easiest way of making this appear is to use the in game 
quit game option then reload in, summon Dusk to purchase her sorceries

Big Hat Logan

He can initially be found in Sen’s Fortress, at the top of the Fortress, you can use the mechanism to change the direction the balls are going to go, you need to send them down to where the Sleeping Man-Serpent enemy is, then proceed down this area (make the ball go somewhere else first), then free Logan with either the Cage Key (under the Crestfallen Merchant) or the Master Key (potential starting gift when you begin the game), free Big Hat Logan from his cell.
Exhaust his dialogue for him to be placed in Firelink Shrine, here you can purchase the majority of his sorceries, once you have obtained the Lordvessel, Logan will be jailed in the Duke’s Archives where you can free him using the Archive Tower Giant Cell Key (in the chest just before you go outside to the Crystal Caves), after doing so, he will then be found in the library (just before you go outside then down to the Crystal Caves) of the Duke’s Archives where he will sell you the Crystal variants of the sorceries
Please note ~ you will need to have a minimum of 15 Intelligence before Big Hat Logan will sell you any sorceries.
Once you have purchased all of his 
sorceries, go off and defeat the boss, Seath the Scaleless then return to the top of the Archive’s to the room where you initially fought Seath, and were automatically defeated and placed in the cell, you will need to defeat Big Hat Logan to acquire his final sorcery.
I will also list off the required stats you will need to use the 
sorcery, however, you can acquire all of these sorceries at 15 Intelligence or above
In addition to the 21 sorceries you can acquire from the 4 NPCs listed above, there are 2 sorceries that are only found throughout Lordran, they are listed here as World Loot sorceries
