Favorite covenant?

#1 Posted by Lady_of_the_patriots (73 posts) -

So I've beaten the game now, and a majority of the game I was Darkmoon. Just curious which one were you guys with most the time and which one you enjoyed most?

#2 Posted by nohthink (1223 posts) -

A woman with a giant set of chests seems to be a good covenant....

Just kidding.

Everlasting Dragon. I like having a Dragon Head.

Dragon... cuz you can become a dragon... what else needs to be said?

#4 Posted by Nadril (528 posts) -

Darkwraith.

@Marz: How good is that dragon form?

#6 Posted by senorfuzzeh (385 posts) -

I heard Forest Hunter was pretty good but I went with Blade of the Darkmoon.

@Nadril: Did it actually change the ending?

#7 Posted by Nadril (528 posts) -

@senorfuzzeh dunno, joined it in NG+ and am purposely not beating it again this time.

I'm a knight. Therefore, the Way of the White is my covenant.

#9 Posted by JackSukeru (5911 posts) -

For I am a Warrior of the Sun!

I like the golden shine and crazy pose you get, and the flinging of the lightning is pretty fun too. I haven't tried most of them yet though.

Tangentially related.

You can always change your covenant you know.

@LordXavierBritish: I wanted to join the Sun warriors but I was to late into the game and my faith was really low.

Praise the sun!

Warrior of Sunlight. Sunbros holla back!

I'm just disappointed in the lightning honestly... 50 faith and the damn Great Lightning only hits for like 500ish >_>... Which is only about as hard as frigging fireball, yes not even fire orb >_>... It certainly looks hella cool though I'll give you that, Zeus mode engage!

Sunbros for life!

Path of the Dragon. If I ever get around to leveling my cleric I'll try Warrior of Sunlight it seems like a lot of fun.

Chaos Servant. I have a thing for spider queens and pyromancy.

#16 Posted by Animasta (14691 posts) -

chaos servant! well it's the only one I've found besides way of white

#17 Posted by Ghost249 (250 posts) -

Joined the Princess of giant Chests covenant and so far been enjoying the view

#18 Posted by Chop (1997 posts) -

Darkwraith

I just really like how the fist shield looks...

#19 Posted by Red_R0B0T (33 posts) -

I just joined the Forrest Hunters. It's fun to be summoned for pvp. There really is zero benefit to it other than that. well, that and the merchant in blighttown sells cool shit.

Once I buy everything I want from him, I'll kill one of the forest hunters and break the covenant. From what I understand they're great for farming souls.

#20 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -

Forest Hunter is pretty awesome. I really wanted to join the Blade of the Darkmoon covenant but after I did I forgot not to pass the fog door... now I'll wait for a point when it's not that hard to grind 100000 souls and request absolution.

Yeah its really too bad the physical block is only 80%. It's bad ass as fuck.

I guard thy Princess of thee Teton Mountains.

#23 Posted by Red_R0B0T (33 posts) -

Forrest Hunters is now my least favorite. One of the hunters decided to randomly end it all while I was in the forest. I got the blame (and 2000 souls) and now I'm out of the covenant. Glitchy as shit.

I'm going to take pleasure in farming them now.

#24 Posted by Mirado (993 posts) -

Blades of the Darkmoon, all the way. If you think Anor Londo is tough in the day, just wait until you face it at night!

Plus, the idea of killing off the guilty/people who invade others is awesome, sort of a like an assassin's assassin.

#25 Posted by McShank (1629 posts) -

Chaos covenant because the spider is badass and who doesn't want a maggot friend who attack people on command >:D also lets you skip the retarded lava dinosaurs. Screw them and their stupid lava lake!

#26 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

Blade of the Darkmoon. Being a bounty hunter  is pretty badass. The only thing that sucks is that I cant seem to use Estus Flasks so any encounter is kind of nerve racking. Also people with Thunder Spears suck, thunder anything really every few hits do some unblock-able damage. 

#27 Posted by Turkfinn (84 posts) -

I cheated on all my covenants and kept switching around =(

How well does the forest hunters work? Cuz I wear my Darkmoon ring for the princess to summon me and I've never once been called apon.

The only time it works is if I use the blue orb.

I do love being a sunbro, although it makes me wish the multiplayer was better so I could help more people fight bosses.

Is that shield good stats wise cause I wanted to join for the cool soul grab

#31 Posted by Mowgers (379 posts) -

Path of the Dragon because my head is a dragon, your argument is invalid.

#32 Posted by perilator666 (452 posts) -

all the covenants are terrible. half of them are buggy as fuck. the other half is exploitable. i'll stick with way of white.

#33 Posted by GeneralMojo_786 (219 posts) -

i was with chaos covenant for a few days, got a smexy chaos fireball spell from them (pyromancy) also i just grew a worm ontop of my head and its nasty! i want it removed, i now joined the princess guard, i was "tempted" to join :D

#34 Posted by bushpusherr (782 posts) -

Darkwraith, easily. Infinite invasions with no limitations other than your soul range. Makes finding suitable hosts super easy not having to worry about if they have guilt or not, if they have dragon scales, if they are in a certain part of the world, etc.

Currently on my third playthrough, started with a new character, and I'm going to finish the game up to the final battle with my soul level securely locked at 15. I'm currently wading through Anor Londo. After becoming a Darkwraith, I will pray on all of the peons in the earliest areas of the game. There is nothing more terrifying as a newcomer than witnessing someone come in with armor and weapons the likes of which you've never seen, and completely wiping the fucking floor with you.

LOL

Same thing happened to me not long after I joined it. Worked out for the best, though, as they made for good grinding. ^_^

Covenants are mainly for online play, right? I want to join Warriors of Sunlight, but by the time I get my faith to lvl 50, I'll be around SL100. Maybe my cleric be able to use the lightning spear sometime around NG+.

#39 Posted by senorfuzzeh (385 posts) -

@TekZero: Everytime you get summoned to a players game and defeat a boss as a phantom the faith requirment drops by 5.

So you might want to get on that.

#40 Posted by TekZero (2672 posts) -

@senorfuzzeh: That's my problem tho, I can't play online.

#41 Posted by Lady_of_the_patriots (73 posts) -

@GeneralMojo_786: Even i was.

#42 Edited by Hilikus (279 posts) -

@Red_R0B0T: And the blighttown merchant has a bodyguard with an excellent ring on him for when you decide to turn against them.

And I was in the Covenant of the Chest because... yeah.
