Question from neohampster

How exactly does ascension work?

I have the soul of the moonlight butterfly and a Spear +10 which are the requirements for creating the special weapon called Moonlight Butterfly Horn. However none of the blacksmiths I have access to seem to want to do the work via the Modify Equipment command (like they do all other advancements) and I am too worried about losing the soul of the Moonlight Butterfly to risk using it myself in some weird fashion. I considered holding the Spear +10 in my right hand and USING the soul hoping it MIGHT work but again, I don't want to risk it because if you use it in any other circumstance it just gives you a bunch of

Don't do that, you're just going to get the souls out of it.
Maybe to craft that weapon you need to speak to the Blacksmith in Anor Londo.

Only the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo can perform Ascension. Take any +10 weapon to him with the respective soul and pay usually 5k souls to create the weapon.

As Squire said, you have to go to the giant blacksmith in Anor Londo. He's before the boss fight with Dragonslayer Ornstein and Smough.

Take any +10 (proper) weapon and the proper soul to him and he'll craft you a boss soul weapon. By proper weapon I mean a weapon that relates to what he is willing to craft. For example, you said you wanted to use the Moonlight butterfly soul to make a spear so you have to have an upgraded +10 spear. You couldn't use an upgraded +10 axe and get a spear out of it. Make sure you choose wisely though because I believe most boss souls can be crafted into 2 different items. The Moonlight butterfly soul can be turned into a pretty badass shield when combined with a +10 small shield. It's L2/Left Trigger move is a strong projectile that doubles the damage of your right hand weapon.

Also to get a weapon/shield to +10 you are going to have to use the Blacksmith in the Undead Burg, right before the Darkroot Garden area. You can upgrade stuff to +5 using the Blacksmith box but have to go to him to go past that. Then you can go to the other guy in Anor Londo and upgrade again. A pain I know, but after the boss fight with Ornstein and Smough you get an item that will be able to transfer you to certain bonfire locations.
