    Not tested in anyway but whenever I got a rare drop (titanite Slab, Ghost Blade, Channeler's Trident, etc.), it's usually right before someone invaded my (SL176 character's) world. I have gotten a couple of titanite Slabs while not having any humanity and wearing neither the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring nor the Symbol of Avarice. My third Channeler's Trident and second Ghost Blade were also dropped while I'm wearing neither the ring nor the symbol. I have tried to obtain the above mentioned items while playing offline, but after what seems to be a thousand runs or so without any result, I decided to give up on the idea.

    I've noticed that items -seem- to drop more commonly when the killing blow was a riposte or backstab. This may also have to do with the "overkill" damage that awards you more souls if you kill an enemy in one hit with an attack that does 150%+ of their max health in damage. If that's so it would be more prudent to farm it in a ng where you can 1shot enemies that badly. However, these are just my subjective observations, it needs to be tested.

    That is precisely what I do while farming for rare drops, but based on my offline result (for both human and hollowed form,)... the method only seems to affect the regular drops,... so I'm tempting to think that it doesn't really matter... but that could just be a problem with my copy.

    I got a trident in the Archives eventually on about my sixth run. I was offline and hollow and had the Gold Serpent ring equipped. Honestly I think these rare drops are meant to be just that, rare and it's just down to dumb luck in the end. I still haven't got the Ghostblade but I'm sure I read on the wiki that you don't need this for the Knight's Trophy.

    Not to be a jerk but I got mine on my fifth channeler once I started farming. However, this is karma balancing out since it took me two weeks of dedicated playing in Demons Souls to get a Pure Bladestone. Also, I did have maxed item discovery via gold serpent and some humanity.

    I got the trident on about the sixth or seventh time I was going through the Archives. I believe being human is the only way you gain the additional drop chance with humanity, so definitely be human and stack it with the gold ring.

    I can never get the stupid armored knight in the perish church to ever drop anything other then a titanite shard. then playing through on a DEX character, with NO humanity, he drops a tower shield, magic build, drops a great axe, I want to shoot myself cuz all the str weps drop when I will never use them.

    I've only had one of these drop, and it was just a random occurence, wasn't trying to farm them or anything.

    I'm surprised to hear other people saying the jagged ghost blades are so rare though, because I've seen a TON of those drop from the ghosts going through New Londo.

    Best that you trade for it through the trade forum. It's not a item that's likely to be given up so cheaply though, unless that person uses the BB glitch.

    The Ghost Blade and the Jagged Ghost Blade are two very different things. The Jagged Ghost Blade is redundantly dropped by the Ghosts (dual blade), and there is also a redundant amount of them. The Ghost Blade, however, is a stupidly ****ing rare drop from the Banshees (screamers), and there are only two of them in New Londo Ruins...

    Well, as if it isn't bad enough that those Banshees are too stingy to drop anything, when they do actually drop something, most of time it'll likely be Transient Curses (enough to make me spit fire, I tell ya.)

    I got one to drop completely by accident off the parish Channeler. I was so stunned that while I was distracted the balder knight gangbanged me and I died. I wanted to shoot myself.

    Also, Bloodios, you have a really disturbing signature.

    Ahhhh my bad wasn't paying close enough attention there. Yeah I've never had a weapon drop from the screamers either.
