Demon’s Souls PS5: Where To Find Blacksmith Ed

Here we will explain where to find Blacksmith Ed in the Demon's Souls remake.

In Demon's Souls on the PS5, there are two blacksmiths the player can meet. One is called Blacksmith Ed, and the other is Blacksmith Boldwin; both of them can provide players with various weapon services like crafting, selling, and upgrades. 

Blacksmith Boldwin is relatively easy to find as he is already at the nexus when you start the game, but to discover where Ed is, you will need to get to the Stonefang Tunnel level. Once in the starting area in Stonefang, you can find Blacksmith Ed at the base of a moving platform elevator. After you locate him, you can then use his various base services similar to Boldwin.

He will be able to upgrade weapons using ore exactly like Boldwin; however, you will still need to get an item called the Searing Demon Soul if you want Ed to upgrade weapons into unique boss weaponsYou can get the Searing Demon Soul from the boss Flamelurker, but you will also need to beat the Armored Spider boss to get Ed to accept the soul. Along with this, you must use the Armored Spider Archstone at least once before he even tells you he wants this soul. That said, below are some helpful tips to aid you in beating both bosses.

Helpful Tips For Beating Flamelurker

  • Always keep your shield up and use the Purple Flame Shield for extra protection against Flamelurker.
  • Combine the above with using the ring of flame resistance for protection against his fire attacks
  • Only attack when he attacks; when he does, there will be a brief window where you can get a few hits in. 
  • Use a long-reaching weapon like a long sword to attack him while using the Purple Flame Shield.

Helpful Tips For Beating Armored Spider 

  • Use hit and run tactics with the theif's ring, cloak spell, and bow. To do this, use both the ring and cloak spell when you first enter the fog. After using the items, the boss will stop attacking you for a brief moment; take this opportunity to fire arrows at it. 
  • This boss has a fire attack, and It's going to bombard you with it while you are in a long tunnel; you will want to dodge it until you reach the boss. To do this, wait until it's about to fire and move either to the left or right. 
  • Like with Flamlurker, it's recommended to come equipped with fire-resistant gear like the ring of fire resistance or; if you are a melee character, use the Purple Flame Shield.
  • To melee attack the spider boss, it's recommended to stay in the center of their body to avoid the attack move where they attempt to crush you. 

If you follow the tips above, you should have an easier time dealing with both bosses. Once you beat both bosses, you will need to take the Searing soul you got from Flamelurker back to Blacksmith Ed. After he accepts it, you will then be able to engage all of his services.
