    Would I not need more Dex to get the most out the Furysword? I could take a trip to DR to get the chaos ember next I suppose.

    Furysword, shirley?
    A good weapon but he only has 14 dexterity - only little scaling bonus.
    A chaos weapon will be at maximum power at 14 dexterity. Sure, at 40 dexterity the furysword is definitely better but not at 14.

    And go on to LI to get the red slab. And either farm the tentacle head-hole-mouth things for red chunks or clear the game and farm the knights at the end.

    Admit it, you already dream of that Zweihander, splitting undead heads.

    @Dangerous_Dan Ah, the musical tube men, they drop the red stuff then? I'll do that. Mind you, only have Nito and BoC left so might just push on to KotFF and farm the knights.

    @LeoliansBro I have a lightning zwei with another char. It's fantastic.
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 09:15:17
    Bah, all this talk and enthusiasm has put me in the mind to dust off DS and Gravelord the parish all day today. Not done that in a couple of weeks.

    Although, it is too fucking hot to bother whether I live or die ;)

    @Architect_z Bill of Cityfingers!

    *Ahem*

    Anyway...

    Oh, today's question.

    Regards to invading and covenants. Do you only invade people in the same "game run" as you? As in, if my mageface killed Gwyn and went into NG+ would I only invade others in NG+?
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 17:15:29
    Finally got past *those* fucking archers.

    Still got some trickiness up ahead HA. Look for a pivot switch similar to the one that adjusts the bridge outside the cathedral.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Thought it was based purely on SL. So theoretically, at 50 say, you'd still invade others at 50, even if they're NG+++.

    Certainly been a Sunbro in NG++ games before, as the souls from killing enemies indicate.

    Gravelords only invade in NG+ and higher.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 17:25:25
    Ah ok cool so it doesn't matter unless you're a gravelord (which I quite like the sound of).

    Besides gravelord you can invade from any kind of NG into any other kind of NG.

    So from the host of the world perspective.

    Red phantoms have an SL ranging from SL "1" to SL "Host + 10 +10%"

    Blue Phantoms can invade anybody - that's my experience. When I am SL 120 I was at one point invaded by a low level blue phantom and when I was SL 10 I was invaded by a SL 120+ dude. How do I know what SL they had? The amount of souls they drop gives a pretty good indication.
    The wiki would make me believe otherwise but I know what I saw with my own eyes! I swear! ; )

    Ah, read a bit more on the wiki and as it turns out, a low level dark wraith can be invaded by a high level spirit of vengeance but it's complicated with sin and stuff.

    Blue just invades all SL so pump up your own to have an advantage.

    Since they fixed Gravelording (a bit) it's my personal favourite PvP mode.

    It's a tad annoying that you have to farm a few Eyes of Death early on (until you start winning regularly at least). Bear in mind that you get invaded by EVERYONE though, not just those whose worlds you've 'infected'.

    Getting ganked by a red whilst battling a blue (and thereby losing an Eye of Death) is a trifle annoying at best.

    You do tend to get a fair few decent invaders though :)
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 18:52:00
    The pvp and covenant system is mental!!!! Awesome though. I think I've decided that I shall progress to Gwyn and farm on the way with a view to getting a top level chaos sword and level up my int and end substantially (not touched either yet, all you have to do is hit me with a leaf and I'm dead). I'll aim to be between sl100-120 then resume my invading. I'll stick to darkmoon but may go gravelord in ng+

    Gravelords can infect worlds at any time, provided you haven't killed that area boss. Usually this means NG+ for most (you can avoid the Taurus Demon for example) but you don't have to be in NG+.

    Personally mine's NG++ at SL100 who flits between the Parish and the Burg who likely won't progress the story any further.

    Summoned help and got past S and O second time.
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 22:11:21
    And I feel no guilt.

    Trying to master my Black Knight Sword which is now plus 6 I think. Deals out a lot of damage but fuck me if the wind-up isn't a bit slow.
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 22:57:08
    It just gets easier from now on. Good luck.
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 23:01:02
    I am terrified of every boss. Will probably just summon so I can complete the bloody game and get on with my life.
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 23:14:10
    @HairyArse The horrible thing is you might not. You might start another playthrough...
  • Deleted user 18 July 2013 23:17:06
    Nope. Will definitely move on. It's only my OCD that's stopping me from quitting now.

    At some point soon you'll realise you're a bit more powerful than you thought you were, make your peace with what are 'acceptable losses', and enjoy the bosses for the centrepieces that they are - it took me ages to stop bricking it for every single one as well, but now I enjoy leaping in, because that's what the game's all about! Enjoy your boss encounters :)
