      So after giving the Great Colored Carp Koremori's Truly Precious Bait, I did not get the Lapiz Lazuli from Carp-transformed Koremori directly like this page implies, but rather from his now vacant pot near the Sculptor Idol. This is on version 1.04

        No enemy in the game drops this, and anyone who's trying to tell you that the Okami Warriors drop it is most likely lying. I made close to 70 runs with the Okami Warriors near Sanctuary Scuptor's Idol when i was doing my post-game farming run to unlock the capstone skills from each skill trees, with Demon Bell, Balloon, and Most Virtuous Deed, didn't get any. To put it into perspective, that's around 210 Okami Warriors i have killed with maximum item discovery. The items for ultimate upgrades in FromSoft's games like Blood Rock and Slabs are always limited, probably the same case for this one, too.

          I think there are actually 7 per NG cycle. I'm sorry to say I don't know exactly where the 7th comes from, but I have 5 at the moment and I haven't even got to the Demon of Hatred yet. I do know I got one from the corpse of a Pot Noble after feeding the bait, and another one from talking to him in Carp Form, so maybe that's it.

            Take some practice runs and learn his move set. Keep sprinting and move in to attack after his combos finish during phases 1 and 2. Some keys to the fight are: use jumps instead of side steps for the unblockable charge and the final vertical hit of his whip combo. Also, after he jumps high into the air, sprint backwards then grapple to him as he lands. Use your grapple attack the moment you’re about to land, then start swinging madly. You can get huge chunks of damage here and often stagger him to prolong the onslaught of attacks. Finally for the last phase, make sure you have Divine Confetti and Malconent. Pop a Divine Confetti then use Malcontent and beat on him. Do this twice more and it should be enough to finish him or drop his health dangerously low. (If he starts to do the fire ring, this is a good time to use Malcontent.)

              Shame you can't maxout all of your shinobi gear since it'd be nice to mess about with maxed out tools for NG+ but ah well.

                  LMAO, people acting like they never played a souls game. Last teir enhancement. Special item needed. Titanite slab ring a bell? Blood borne was a little more generous with the blood rock, but still not farmable. Anyways, I'm gonna get the 2 easy ones out of the way on my first playthrough

                    Don’t trust the person who said you can farm these. I wasted 2 or 3 on the Shuriken one thinking I would be able to get more

                      Would love to hear conclusively whether there are farmable or not. Since the only person on here to make such a claim is posting anonymously, seems like it may not be true.. Sucks, would love to start ng+ with 3 maxed tools, instead of two.

                        You can get 6 per playthrough it is like the titanite slab of the previous dark souls 3, no luck for me farming it whatesoever. If you want the achievement where you upgrade all prosthetic tools you need 2 playthroughs since you need 10 lapis lazuli in total.

                          Farmed the Okami Warrior for about 1.5hrs (on ng+2) and got 0 Lapis drops. I had the Demon Bell on, and also always had a Possession balloon on.

                            You can find one by finishing the Master Carp quest, it's a reward given by the man in the pot in Hirata or Fountain Palace You can buy 2 others from the guy in the pot in Fountain Palace, you'll have to exchange those with red scales (6 scales = 1 Lapis Lazuli)
