    This trophy hasn't changed from the PS3 version of the game even though the original DLC area is included in the remaster. I expected to have to get tail cut weapons and create boss soul weapons from the original game's DLC content, but you don't have to. You just need the original base game's "rare" weapons which I will describe in detail below.

    Note that this trophy will require you to play about halfway into the third playthrough as you need three Soul of Sif and access to the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo.

    Rare weapons fall into a few categories:

    Weapons found in static locations

    Dragon Crest Shield- found on a corpse near the Undead Dragon in Valley of Drakes
    Astora's Straight Sword- found on a corpse near the Undead Dragon in Valley of Drakes
    Havel's Greatshield- found in a chest in a room behind an illusory wall in Anor Londo
    Dragon Tooth- found in a chest in a room behind an illusory wall in Anor Londo
    Dragonslayer Greatbow- found on a corpse in Anor Londo by dropping through a broken glass window in the entrance hall leading to Dragon Slayer Ornstein & Executioner Smough
    Black Iron Greatshield- found on a corpse next to the painting in Anor Londo that leads to the Painted World of Ariamis
    Velka's Rapier- found on a corpse in Painted World of Ariamis after the Annex Key door
    Bloodshield- found on a corpse near the Undead Dragon in Painted World of Ariamis
    Effigy Shield- found on a corpse in Tomb of the Giants

    Weapons dropped by specific enemies
    Some of these weapons are guaranteed drops and some are random drops. You likely will need to farm the appropriate enemies to get all of these weapons.
    Increasing your item discovery can help get the weapons to drop more frequently. Consider using the Covetous Gold Serpent ring or the Symbol of Avarice (which do not stack) and having humanity in your counter to increase item discovery.

    Black Knight Sword- dropped by sword-wielding Black Knights in Undead Burg, Undead Asylum (second visit), and Kiln of the First Flame (respawning)
    Black Knight Greatsword- dropped by greatsword-wielding Black Knights in Undead Parish and Kiln of the First Flame (respawning)
    Black Knight Greataxe- dropped by greataxe-wielding Black Knights in The Catacombs and Kiln of the First Flame (respawning)
    Black Knight Halberd- dropped by halberd-wielding Black Knights in Darkroot Basin, Tomb of the Giants and Kiln of the First Flame (respawning)
    Black Knight Shield- dropped by any Black Knight
    Channeler's Trident- dropped by Channelers in the Undead Parish, Depths, and the Duke's Archives (respawning)
    Crescent Axe- 100% drop by Patches in The Catacombs, Tomb of the Giants, or Firelink Shrine; sold by Patches upon relocating to Firelink Shrine for 10,000 souls
    Crest Shield- 100% drop by Oscar, Knight of Astora in Undead Asylum (return visit).

    Silver Knight Straight Sword- dropped by sword-wielding Silver Knights in Anor Londo
    Silver Knight Spear- dropped by spear-wielding Silver Knights in Anor Londo

    RealBlazeStormYou can actually be summoned by someone and have them drop all the needed weapons and the trophy will pop. It is quite cheap but I'm surprised it actually works so if you have a really generous friend (or someone who can save scum their account by using a USB or the PS+ cloud) you can use this to shortcut getting this trophy. Sadly this doesn't work for the spells needed for the other collectible trophies.
