  1. -Scrofulous Targe can be dropped from small, green,dagger-wielding creatures in The Den of Corrupdted Nature.
    -White Screen also consumes 5 faith upon blocking.
    -The Smith’s Great Sword, if I remember right, drops from a sword-wielding guy that can do jump attacks at you in the Ancient Dungeon. Stats:28-54/2/0
    -Basilius’ Nails should drop from claw-wielding guy in the Ancient Dungeon. For me it dropped pretty often in game version 1.0.0, but I still cant make it drop in game version 1.0.1.
    -Organic Scythe should drop from small, green,dagger-wielding creatures in The Den of Corrupdted Nature. For me they dropped weapon with the same name but it had white glow instead of green, thus it didnt add to my forge.
    -Cluck-cluck wand can be obtained by hitting bells at Filthblood shelter in the next order from left to right:32141
    -Worn Cassok drops from the from priests that attack you with magic and summon ghosts/wraiths in the Alabaster Citadel. Stats:3/8/8/4/-6/+50% magic damage
    -Plated Gold Armor drops from the Golden Paladins in the Alabaster Citadel. Stats :5/-4/-4/3.5/0
    -Throwing Axe, if I remeber right, is found in a room right before the boss fight with The First One – Fallen Bulwark. Upon entering a room go a bit to the right and climb the ladder up. Continue moving right and drop to the platform with a dog tamer NPC and a chest containing the item.
