Questions regarding slabs

#1ArchMageSynokPosted 2/2/2013 11:31:10 AM
I'm on my first playthrough and just beat Seathe, trying to go for some achievements now with weapon upgrades. Mostly just need slabs, and was wondering where to get each type. Do Darkwraiths drop all types of slabs or just regular? How about the crystal lizards (hollow tree has the most right)? any guarantee slabs besides Stray Demon?

This page might help, it shows all upgrade material and where to buy/ farm and the upgrade tree:

Edti: I know one of the farming locations it seems it missing is, you can farm chunks from the darkwraiths of New Londo.

Siegmeyer quest will net you a slab. Darkwraiths only drop regular slabs and it's rare.. I believe it's just a random drop with the crystal lizards. I haven't got one in my last 3-4 times playing through that area.

Siegmeyer is the fat dude in funny armor right? Last I saw of him was I think in blighttown swamp, then met his daughter in the crystal monster. What is left in that quest?

side question about logan, I'm not using a faith build, so can't buy spells from him, do I have to buy them for him to go hollow?

Yes you have to buy Logan's spells for him to go hollow. It's been a while since I did it so I'm like 95% certain.

You can get

Normal game
2 Regular slabs from the stray demon on the asylum and the siegmeyer quest line
1 Blue slab on a corpse in the crystal cave, you must travel through invisible bridges near the small cave with 3 lizards
1 Red slab in a chest in the poison swamp in lost izalith
1 Whie slab on a small cave on the pinewheels room before Nito

Also lizards on the great hollow can drop a regular slab and you can trade an ascended pyro flame to snuggly for another red slab.

DLC
1 Regular slab in a chest on kalameet area behind a water fall
1 Blue slab in a chest on the forest, hidden on a bush inside a small pound
1 White slab on a corpse somewhere on the abyss with the humanity enemies.

If you would like to farm them which do not recommend due to the low drop rate

Dark wratihs drop regular slabs
Moonlight butterflies on the crystal cave drop blue slabs
Pinewheels on ToG drop white slabs
Octopus demons on Losi Izalith drop red slabs,
