I tried the Gravelord Covenant and the following experiences with it:
I had 3 Eyes when i started.
I was cursing Dark Anor Londo very successfully. Got invaded about 25 times within 2 or 3 hours and had some very good fights.
I won all of these but 5 fights in total whereas 2 fights yielded an eye of death since they have been Spirits of Vengeance and the rest was Darkmoon's and Wraiths who dont bear any Eyes. Aside from the fact that this covenant is flippin hard for that very reason since you get only a few eyes some question arose now:
- Farming Eyes of Death is not an option, droprate is horrible. (Tried in Depths and The Great Hollow), correct ?
- Sources say that if you finish Tomb of Giants you find 3 Eyes of Death from Patches after he moves to Firelink, that makes only sense if you join the Gravelords again since you have to Kill Nito in order to finish the Tomb Of Giants (thus breaking the Covenant), correct ?
- You have to be a top PvP player to make this covenant work otherwise you run out of eyes pretty fast. I consider myself being a good pvp player jugded by the amount of Wins and Losses, (i refuse using the walk, or Fog Ring or cheesing people out) still it is fuckin hard. Is that intended or am i missing something ? Tips ?
That said, where are you guys getting your eyes from, or is someone even willing to give me some eyes and return of something else ?
