half an hour is nothing man. Its got about the same drop rate as blue titanite from the butterflies. Farm about 300 ghosts or so and you shouldget one.

I really want that weapon too! Remember you can only get it from the female ghosts, ie the ones that there aren't very many of. They like to scream. Jagged ghost blade from male ghosts. But you know that right? ;)

I think this weapon is crappy. I've had a playthrough where i got three of them, but 3/5 playthroughs i'll get at least one. Try using weapons that will 1hko the ghosts, use wog, great fireball. these are usually the methods i use to kill them and the drops come pouring in. I just do it with 100 discovery. You know what IS hard, trying to get the slabs off of the dark wraiths at the bottom on the ruins. Try getting your hands on a mimic head for an extra discovery boost.

Its not rare at all. It is a ghost so not every one can see it

There are only two enemies in the entire game that drop it which makes it annoying to farm. I farmed slabs then killed on Banshee (Ghost Mage / Screaming Ghost) on each run until it dropped. I got eight titanite slabs before I got one ghost knife. Of course, I had eleven chances for a slab per run versus one chance for the ghost.

I've only seen it drop from the screaming ghost. Jagged blades drop from the rest.
