Gravelord convenant is currently broken...

It seems on japanese videos they have a trinket to activate the abilty of the gravelord here is the gravelord convenant and what it does (probably should read before u continue readin' this post)

 

http://darksouls.wikidot.com/gravelord-servant

 

The problem is on our version of the game it tells u to invoke the gravelord abilty using the eyes of death, however u can use these anyway if you are in the covenant or not.

 

According to some sources we should of had a soul sign to put down, this is not the case.

So at the moment it's worthless, look for something else.. you can join to get the swrod at least, but after that with broken servers at the moment, it's highly unlikely that anyone will invade u when you activate the eyes of death.

 

Also it is said that the eyes of death are not the gravelord ability according to japanese players... and comments in wiki forums,

 

:(

The sword look awesome though, that was the main reason I joined, I find myself wanting to use the sword even though it does a bit less damage than my current one! I am a sucker for good looks!

 

I think the best covenants to join if you want action are:

 

http://darksouls.wikidot.com/forest-hunter - for levels around 25 and up.

 

http://darksouls.wikidot.com/blade-of-the-darkmoon - sounds fairly action packed but you wont get this until you get to anor londo

 

http://darksouls.wikidot.com/darkwraith - this is basically the invasion covenant, you will need to be almost done killing all the bosses before you can join this.

 

I am planning to go find the dragon one tonight just to get the trophy, and then I want to join the darkmoon one, sounds most appealing to me.

 

Gravelord one would be pretty awesome if it worked, hopefully we can get a fix.

I rolled a cleric so I started with the 'Way of White' covenant. I'm liking the stats on the Gravelord sword as it's certainly an upgrade to the Drake Sword. What happens if you switch covenants?

No idea, I will try it tonight and let you know. I would imagine you will get to keep the sword though.

yeah the issue with the blade of the ddarkmoon is u require patches the hyena to learn the kneel gesture.

However he doesn't move from the tomb of the giants until u beat nito, but to beat nito u need to get the lordsvessel (which also unlocks the bosss fog and allows teleportation between fires)... so u wud have to go through tha ruins a few times, it's a bit of a headache because those ghosts gang up on you and if your curse runs out, they attack u and don't have enough time to re-apply it.

 

I think i am going to attempt the four kings next, i watched the boss fight on youtube... wow.. epic boss is epic.

Dear god, that is brutal. I was in the tomb of the giants after the catacombs last night and its that dark in there I just could not be bothered.

 

Is there any covenent that is not a complete pain to join that allows you to actually do PvP?

 

Its a bit of a shame they tied it all to covenants but only to ones that are so late in the game many people will have made decisions already that mean they can't even join.

 

EDIT:

 

Can't you use the ring that you get from killing greywolf sif to be able to kill the ghosts?

 

Or you could just go and get cursed and do it at half health.

Yes i know what ya mean.

Half the decsions you make effect many things without knowing it.

Thank god for the wiki.

 

It might be worth getting the lordsvessel first, then teleporting to the boss fog in demons ruins right next to nito.

Kill him then let patches move to the shrine, then  teleport to a lit bonfire in the ruins- however i think that the vessel needs to be lit by that serpent, so if so.. u can''t do that or else u can't join the covenant as it states not to talk to him and if u want to teleport u need to get it lit for it to work via the serpent.. it's all to much lol/

 

P.s

 

I've got transient curse stones so they work on the ghosts.. but them ghosts spam you at one point in a very narrow corridor, it's a little tough.

i think i am going to do this:

 

1. You must defeat the four kings BEFORE obtaining the Lordvessel. If you don't you will not be able to join Darkwraith for the rest of the current playthrough.
2. Kill Ingrid to receive the key to open the door to The Abyss.3. Entering The Abyss starts the battle against the Four Kings. Defeat them to proceed.
4. Speak to Kingseeker Framp, the primordial serpent, at Firelink Shrine. You will have the option to Enter Covenant.

 

I'm gunna farm the humanity now, then start heading over there, it's full of pvp invaders, but i am going to need help so.. i have no choice lol.

I'll put my fog ring on when someone invades, stop them locking onto me at least.

Do join the darkmoon blade you do NOT need to learn the kneel gesture, you just wear the seance ring at the second bonfire and the statue vanishes, then you just walk down to the alter bit, do NOT enter the fog, and on the ground is the option to kneel.

 

I have my ring that they summon me with now and my blue eye invasion orb, I have been trying to invade but its failed every time so far!

I've got the Gravelord sword to +5 (max) now, it is a beast!!

 

I farmed the Titanite demons at the bottom of Sen's, and Anor Londo has got quite a few in several locations.

Thats the third bonfire haha.

 

The second one is on the rotating platform in the middle, turn it again so that its all the way down, then go down the stairs and you should see the bonfire and the statue.

yeah i got it.

 

If i enter that fog after kneeling am i going to get kicked out?

 

Also the boss of this level was EASY compared to some i have been against, everyone says how tough they are.. but they were quite easy lol - a little dissapointed (slough n ornstien) or whatever.

 

I got the lordsvessel too, can teleport around, real handy!

I wasn't paying attention at the fog bit, when i was on the rug i ignored what the person said and immediately proceeded into the fog. I angered Gwyndolin and had to fight her, shes pretty irritating but killed her in the end! I can't access that covenant now and the firekeeper in Anor Londo attacked me so I had to kill him too. :o

Aye i didnt get a chance to post last night but you can't join the covenant if you kill the boss same applies if you join and then kill the boss you get kicked out i think!

 

After being in the covenent 2 days I have been able to invade 2 players in about 3 hours of spamming the invade option, 1 in and 1 loss. Connectivity is very poor.
