To join a covenant the player must make oaths to specific NPCs. With each covenant there are rewards for following the guidelines set by your "leader" and there are penalties for breaking them. Covenants may also have an effect on the player's online interactions. There are nine covenants. Each covenent has four ranks, starting from 0 to +3. While some covenants award you items for a rank promotion, this is not always the case. Be warned that you are able to betray your covenant; some examples of betrayal are attacking NPCs associated with that covenant or joining another covenant, therefore breaking your oath. You can rejoin the covenant betrayed after you absolve your sins to the priest located in the belltower of the Undead Parish. Absolving sins, which removes you from the Book of the Guilty and resets any friendly NPCs you turned hostile, costs your soul level multiplied by 2000 souls. Another downside to rejoining your covenant is that whatever you turned in to your covenant to rank up is reduced by half. For example if you turned in 10 sunlight medals to the Warrior of Sunlight covenant, betraying then rejoining, it will register that you have only turned in 5 medals. Also, Oswald of Carim (NPC priest in Undead Parish) offers an option to abandon you current covenant without cost and without causing any sin. -------------------------- Way of White - Lawful Good WOWH -------------------------- Involves everything "related" to Gwyn and its followers. You get this covenant not by talking with Gwyn himself, but by communicating with his body guards while having a lot of humanity. This covenant is for helping out other players online. Players who are in this covenant will automatically be drawn closer to each other on the network. This makes Miracle Resonance easier to perform, as well as helps block people from antagonistic covenants from coming closer on the network. No longer rumor, Way of White players report that they Almost never or never get invaded. In addition, every player that is in this covenant can find each other's soul signs more easily. Joining Speak with Petrus at Firelink Shrine or to Reah at the Undead Parish after rescue from Tomb of Giants to join this covenant. Knight and Cleric class are in Way of White covenant by default. Ranks There are no ranks in this covenant and the betrayal penalties are: Betrayal Penalties -1 Estus Flask ------------------------------ Princess' Guard - Neutral Good PRGU ------------------------------ Gwyn's daughter, Gwynevere, asks a favor of the player after the "Ornstein/Smough" boss fight. She mentions that, after her father's "change", she has been trapped. Although she gives you the Lordvessel to warp inbetween certain bonfires, you are not required to join this covenant to receive it. Every player that is in this covenant can find each other's soul signs more easily. Joining After defeating Smough and Ornstein in Anore Londo, speak with Gwynevere to enter this covenant. You will receive the Sun Princess Ring for joining. Miracle: Bountiful Sunlight and Miracle: Soothing Sunlight become available through Piscaca. Rank Requirements There are no ranks in this covenant. Betrayal Penalties Unknown (please e-mail with information) ------------------------------------- Blade of the Dark Moon - Chaotic Good BODM ------------------------------------- This is the true Gwyn covenant. He wants to destroy all other lords and get their flames, so he can get enough power to lead the rest of the world into his perfect future. You get it late in the game. This covenant allows you to obtain the Dark Knight armor that has special effects. "The goddess of Sin Velka oversees this list of the guilty, who have disrespected the Gods or their covenants, and shall one day face the wrath of the Blades of the Darkmoon." The Blade of the Darkmoon's primary objective is to assassinate other players who have broken their covenant by using a list of names found in the "Book of Guilty" item. Joining You must visit the Catacombs and pick up the Darkmoon Seance Ring. You must also have access to Anor Londo and its second bonfire, which is further into the area than your first stop. 1. Go to Anor Londo's Second Bonfire 2. Equip the Darkmoon Seance Ring 3. The nearby statue will vanish, go through the opening and reach the fog, but do not enter yet. Back up a second, and wait on the carpet before the fog until you see a prompt to hit either X or A, depending on your system, to kneel. There is no need to learn the kneel gesture. 4. Accept and join the covenant. 5. You will receive a Blue Eye Orb and Blade of the Darkmoon, that you can use for invading. Fact: If you have previously joined a covenant, you will still be able to join the Blade of the Darkmoon nonetheless. You just have to leave your current covenant and join. You also won't have to pay the priest for leaving your previous covenant to join. Fact: If you enter the fog before kneeling, you will be attacked by Gywndolin and must either complete your current play through for another chance to join, or pay a very large amount of souls to Oswald of Carima and have your sin absolved. Darkmoon Seance Ring (pvp functionality) This ring is gained by joining the Darkmoon Blade covenant. This ring can be equipped, and if there are players who are at a similar Soul Level to you, you will be summoned into their world even if you are not in Anor Londo. The host will not receive a message warning them of an invader, thus giving the intruder an advantage. If the invader successfully kills the host, they will be sent back and will be reward ed with a Souvenir of Reprisal. If the Host manages to kill the invader, however, they will recieve Souls as a reward. You must be part of the Darkmoon Blade covenant for the Ring's effect to occur. Rank Requirements Blade of the Darkmoon requires Souvenir of Reprisal to level your rank. This drops from people you kill that are listed in the Book of the Guility, but however, it is not a guaranteed drop. 0 - 0 Souvenirs. Rewards: Blue eye orb +1 - 10 souvenirs. Rewards: Darkmoore Sword and Darmoore Talisman +2 - 30 Souvenirs. Rewards: None +3 - 80 Souvenirs. Rewards: None Betrayal Penalties Uknown (please e-mail me with information) ------------------------------------ Warrior of Sunlight - Lawful Neutral WOSL ------------------------------------ The Covenant of Solaire of Astoria, a wandering knight who praises the sun. If you played Demon Souls, you can think of Astoria as the "South Boletaria" of this game. The main purpose of this covenant is co-op play. As a member of this covenant, instead of being a white phantom, your character and your soul sign turn gold. In addition, if you successfully help defeat a boss as a phantom, every member in that party will receive a Sunlight Medal. Every player in this covenant can find each other's soul signs more easily. Joining 1. Meet the Faith Requirement of 50 OR for each host you help successfully defeat a boss as a White Phantom, the Faith Requirement decreases by 5. For example, successfully helping five hosts will only require your character to have 25 Faith to join the covenant. 2. Find the Broken Altar to the right of the bonfire under the Hellkite Dragon of the Undead Parish. 3. Pray to the altar. If you meet the requirements, you will have the option to enter the covenant. Rank Requirements By offering a certain amount of Sunlight Medals to the Altar located in the Undead Parish, you will be able to rank up 0 - 0 Medals. Rewards: Miracle: Lightning Spear +1 - 10 Medals. Rewards: Miracle: Greater Lightning Spear; ability to offer Lord Gwyn's Souls and receive; Miracle: Sunlight Spear +2 - 30 Medals. Rewards: None +3 - 80 Medals. Rewards: None Betrayal Penalties Unknown (please e-mail me with info) ---------------------------- Forest Hunter - True Neutral FOHU ---------------------------- The player finds this covenant in the dark forest by talking to the huge cat referred to as "Alvina" in a small stone building towards the wolf boss. Joining this covenant will result in Alvina giving you the Cat Covenant Ring, which she will use to summon you when other players, whom aren't part of the Forest Hunter covenant, journey into the first part of the forest. Having the ring equipped essentially puts you in a queue for PvP. When a non-Forest Hunter enters the area you will be summoned to "invade" them. It is possible for more than one Forest Hunter player to be summoned to invade a single trespasser. You do not have to remain in the forest for it to work and you do not have to be in human form, though you do need to have it equipped. Defeating a trespasser will gain you a random shard (note that you do not need to land the killing blow to be credited with a victory). If the enemy is killed, you are returned to where you were standing upon being summoned and all of your spells and miracles are refilled. If you are killed, you are returned to the last bonfire you rested at, but do not lose any souls, humanity, or items. Defeated trespassers may use an Indictment on you if they posses any. With this covenant, you learn that Alvina hates the wolf that guards the large sword and she actually approves of you killing him. The wolf has to be killed in order to obtain a ring which is essential for the progression of the story. Killing any hostile creatures in the area (i.e. anything you can target) does not seem to affect your covenant status, though attacking Alvina (and presumably any of the non-hostile NPC hunters) will result in the breaking of the covenant. Some players have reported a glitch where an NPC will fall off of a cliff and die, breaking the player's covenant. It seems that even accidentally walking or rolling into one of the hunters in the forest will be construed as a betrayal, prompting them to ban you from the covenant and begin attacking. Joining 1. Reach Alvina at the Darkmoon Garden, who stands just before the bridge linking to the ruined structure. 2. Accept covenant 3. Obtain a Cat Ring that will allow Alvina to summon you to defend the Forest. Rank Requirements Each successful defeat of a forest invaders is one point closer to a rank up. However, ranking up will net you no items, only a number. 0 - 1-5 victories. Rewards: If you speak to Alvina after defeating a certain number of forest invaders, she will reward you with the following: 1 kill: Divine Blessing 3 kills: Ring of Fog (can also be obtained through trade with Snuggly) 5 kills: Alvina will tell you about Great Wolf Sif Note: If you are wearing the Cat Ring when you speak to Alvina to claim a reward and you are summoned and she has not yet given you the reward, you will not (ever) receive it. The conversation cannot be re-initiated. +1 - 10 victories. Rewards: None +2 - 30 victories. Rewards: None +3 - 80 victories. Rewards: None Betrayal Penalties Unknown (please e-mail with information) POSSIBLE BUG Be aware that once you join this covenant, RELOAD YOUR GAME IMMEDIATELY. The reason why is cause the npc's A.I. becomes bugged due to one of them either dying or falling off the cliff. This ends up kicking you out of the covenant and making your new allies as crazy bloodthirsty enemies. You'll just end up paying a lot of souls just to absolve your sins. Don't worry, you can still join the covenant AFTER you pay. ------------------------------- Chaos Servant - Chaotic Neutral CHSE ------------------------------- This is the Ancient White Spider Witch's covenant, located behind a false wall on the first floor of the room behind the boss of Blighttown (Quelaag). To enter the room and gain access to the bonfire and Spider Witch, you will need to tell the creature that blocks the entrance that you are interested in joining (note that this does not count as committing to the covenant). To break the covenant, you need only hit the witch, kill her, or hurt/kill a daughter of chaos. How to correctly get infected with eggs: Equip a low powered weapon for starters. Then go up to an egg carrier and give them a little tap, but make sure you don't kill them, you can also jump on top of them. After that, all you have to do is stand there and wait for the burdened to grab hold of you and impregnate your forehead. This can take a couple attempts for it to stick, but when it does the easiest way to tell is for you to let your character idle. Once your character is idle he will randomly scratch his head. After that it's just a waiting game, but it can take up to 10 minutes for the egg to hatch, and when it does if you go see Eingyi (Egg-burdened npc after Queelag) and he will give you an Egg Vermifuge and access to Poison Mist and Toxic Mist Pyromancy spells. Note: in the early gamespot review of the game, the reviewer mentioned that he got infected by the eggs by idling in a certain boss' lair for too long (2nd last paragraph). Joining You must have access to Queelag's Domain (lower Blighttown). 1. Reach Quelaag's Domain and locate the White Spider, who is behind a false wall below the lever to activate the underground bell (see Ancient Spider Witch) 2. Talk to her and select Enter Covenant 3. You will obtain the spell Chaos Great Fireball, and can buy spells from the Egg Burdened nearby. Effects of covenant 俵pon joining the Chaos Servant Covenant, you will gain access to three powerful pyromancies, with another granted at rank 2. 肘f the player kills or harms the witch or one of the Daughters of Chaos, the Covenant will be considered broken, and an egg will be implanted on your head. This egg will feed on the souls you gain and, when enough souls are absorbed, will hatch into a giant egg which will replace your head. You will no longer be able to equip head gear and your kick animation will be replaced by a 'maggot attack'. Eggs are also extremely flammable, and make you vulnerable to fire. To get rid of these parasites you need an Egg Vermifuge that can be purchased from Eingyi, in case you didn't break their covenant, dropped by other Egg Burdened, (who are also the other way to get infected.) or pillaged from the Two headed snakes in the Forest area of Darkwood. You do not have to be a member of the Chaos Servant Covenant for these next things. 肘f you speak to Eingyi (the Undead with eggs on his back) while you have an egg on your head, he will allow you to purchase the spells Poison Mist and Toxic Mist, and also give you a free Egg Vermifuge to remove the egg from your head. These spells will remain available for purchase afterwards, regardless of whether or not you have an egg on your head. 髭ingyi also sells a Servant Roster, which will let you view all players who are members of the covenant and their contribution to the covenant (how much humanity they've given up kept as a score). It is unknown if this is used for anything other than this. Ranks 0 - 0 Humanity offered. Rewards: Upon joining, recieve Chaos Great Fireball +1 - 10 Humanity offered. Rewards: None +2 - 30 Humanity offered. Rewards: Recieve Chaos Firestorm and open the shortcut to Izalith +3 - 80 Humanity offered. Rewards: none Betrayal Penalties Attacking white spider or Egg Burdened Merchant drops 2 Egg Vermifuges Killing the white spider will deactivate the bonfire and give you a Fire Keeper Soul (You will still be able to warp to the bonfire) Note: If you break the chaos servants covenant, and gain eggs, you will no longer be able to buy the antidote for the eggs. You will still be able to get it from rare drops from egg carriers and the Two Headed Snake Lizards from the Darkroot Gardens (100% confirmed both). You can also find one Egg Vermifuge in The Painted World of Ariamas. -------------------------------- Gravelored Servant - Lawful Evil GLSV -------------------------------- The trigger for unlocking the Gravelord Servant covenant is in crypt containing the Titanite Demon in the Catacombs (note: you don't need to kill the demon). In the tunnel it occupies, one coffin sticks further out than the rest, and is unoccupied. Looking at it will prompt you to "nestle into" it. Once you do, wait for approximately 30 seconds and a first-person cut-scene will commence. You need an Eye of Death in your inventory in order for this to occur. When you enter the large, spacious room, head away from the coffin to the larger coffin at the other side. Create your covenant with the Gravelord Nito here. Happy hunting! Nito initially rewards the player with the Gravelord Sword and Gravelord Sword Dance預 miracle that summons swords to attack in the vicinity. (While this covenant was initially described as pyromancer-friendly in the pre-release demonstrations, the early miracle rewards suggest that it is best supported by faith builds.) The Gravelord Sword is a curved greatsword with a 300 Poison rating. According to IGN.com, this sword is almost guaranteed to inflict toxic status on PvP targets with its thrusting secondary attack (confirmation熔f effectiveness and whether the damage is Poison or Toxin羊equested) To "deepen" the pact with Nito, you offer him Eyes of Death items, a few of which can be picked up right behind the Titanite Demon near the coffin. It is assumed for now that the other listed abilities are granted after donating a good amount of these items. (Polling from public opinion it appears that using this item has had a slim chance of producing any results. This could be due to the current unfavorable server situation, good players who simply neither die nor back-invade, or the item itself could have been poorly scripted.) Eyes of Death are very rare items, with only a handful available from pickups throughout the game. One alternative way of obtaining them is to proceed and kill Nito on one playthrough, and unlock Patches as a merchant. Buy eyes from him and save them for your next playthrough. (Note: Patches will only sell you a maximum of 3 Eyes.) Another way to acquire these items is to farm Basilisks in The Depths or The Great Hollow, although even with an Item Discovery stat of 200 and a fairly fast farm rotation this can take upwards of 1 hour per drop. Being the Gravelord's Servant allows you to invoke the Gravelord ability by using an Eye of Death, which consists of you placing a soul sign of your own on the ground. This soul sign will appear in 3 other players' worlds, wherever you left your original sign. While the Gravelord is invoked, black phantom monsters (upgraded versions of already difficult creatures) will be summoned in all 3 of the other worlds. If a player dies while under this "curse," his bloodstain will be robbed of half of his souls, all of which are given to the Gravelord who cursed his world. However, if an afflicted player finds the Gravelord's soul sign, he may invade his tormentor's world and seek vengeance; killing the Gravelord will free all 3 worlds of the curse. Since all 3 players can invade at the same time, using this ability is very risky, albeit extremely fun. Due to this, and to the rarity of the required item (which, if wasted even just a few times, can leave you unable to progress in the covenant), it is always in the Gravelord's best interest to hide his soul sign or put it in an extremely hard-to-reach place. The Gravelord will also receive Eyes of Death when invading players are killed, allowing him to repeat the process and/or rank up within the covenant. Effects of covenant 俵pon using the Eye of Death, the Gravelord will leave a soul sign on the ground, indicating the place the item was used. The same soul sign will appear in 3 other players' worlds along with stronger enemies, making their game harder. On the other side, the cursed players will have the opportunity, upon finding the soul sign, to invade the Gravelord's world and seek revenge. Therefore, the Gravelord should hide the soul sign in order to avoid invasions from cursed players, as all 3 of them may invade at the same time. If a cursed player dies before finding the Soul Sign, half of his souls go to the Gravelord, while the other half will remain in the Bloodstain as usual. 膝ravelords are rewarded with souls and Eyes of Death for killing invading cursed players. Covenant allegiance can be checked easily at any time via the status menu, as it will display "Covenant: Gravelord Servant +
" (e.g. "Gravelord Servant +1" for rank 1). Ranks 0 - 0 Eyes of Death offered. Rewards: Gravelord Sword, miracle: Gravelord Sword Dance. Note: "40" charges translates into 2 uses of an AOE 20 sword burst +1 - 10 Eyes of Death offered. Rewards: miracle: Gravelord Greatsword Dance (stronger version of Gravelord Sword Dance) +2 - 30 Eyes of Death offered. Rewards: None Betrayal Penalties Unknown, please contact me with info --------------------------------- Path of the Dragon - Neutral Evil POTD --------------------------------- The dragon covenant is obtained by swearing allegiance to the Everlasting Dragon. The objective of the dragon covenant is to invade people that hold Dragon Scales. The winner of the PvP will receive souls and a dragon scale (note: if you lose you do not lose any of your dragon scales). Once you get scales, you offer them to the Dragon to "rank up". And with each rank, you will have the ability to become more dragonoid. Cutting off the Everlasting Dragon's tail will give you the Dragon Greatsword, This does NOT cause hostility. Although you can place the Everlasting Dragon Eye in many places in dark souls, the unofficial area people place the Dragon Eye is beside the bonfire in Darkroot Garden next to the Crest of Artorius Gate (upstairs); later in the game, people tend to use the Dragon Eye in the Kiln of the First Flame at the very beginning of the level. Dragonoid Transformation When you first join the covenant, you receive the Dragon Head Stone, which turns your head into one of a dragon. In order to use this successfully, no head armor must be equipped. The effect will last until you die. With a Dragon Head, your fire power increases. After ranking up sufficiently, you will receive a Dragon Stone. To use this, unequip all your armor, leaving nothing but your weapon, shield, and rings. This will turn you completely into a Dragonoid Using the Dragon Stone will activate an ability similar to Miracle: Force, knocking back opponents. Also for a few seconds, your attack strength will increase 25%. With the Dragon Head Stone or Dragon Stone, you have the ability to do a fire breath attack. This scales according to your fire damage and rank in the covenant, and will consume an amount of stamina as long as you use it. Joining Go into Blighttown and head out into the swamp. If you're facing out of Quelaag's Domain, go to your right - if you're coming from the beginning of the swamp (the Valley of Drakes entrance) - go to your left. As you progress you should begin to see large leech/pill bug enemies. Eventually you will come across a long root (bridge) that leads to what appears to be a dead end. Hit the alcove with your weapon and you should reach another dead end with a treasure chest. Go behind the chest and hit the wall again. You should enter The Great Hollow. As you proceed, you will run into Basilisks (Also known as Cursed Frogs, which can curse the player) and mushroom men. Once you reach the bottom you will exit out into the Ash Lake. Race the Hydra across the sand bars (use the environment as a shield), and make your way past the Clams until you get to the final tree "building". (There are three total; the one you came out of, a center one, and the final one which houses the covenant leader). "Pray" to the Everlasting Dragon, and become a member. Fact: You may cut off the tail of the Ancient Dragon to receive the Dragon Greatsword without causing it to become hostile, and you may still join the Path of the Dragon covenant. Effects of covenant 謬his covenant allows players to challenge others online to earn Dragon Scales. Useful for leveling Dragon type weapons, and gaining the unique Dragon Head Stone and Dragon Torso Stone. 俵pon using the Everlasting Dragon Eye, a Summon Sign will be drawn in some online player's world, and players holding on to Dragon Scales that interacts with this summon sign will be invaded (similar to how Red Eye Stone works in Demon's Souls). 俵pon using the Dragon Head Stone (without any head gear), the player's head will turn and take the form of a dragonoid's head. At this point, usage of the Dragon head Stone again will allow players to breathe out fire. The prowess of the fire is dependent on the player's covenant level. 俵pon using the Dragon Torso Stone (without any armor equipment inclusive of shield), the player takes the form of a dragonoid. Other than having the same fire attack as the previous point, the player will have: 1) Increased unarmed attack damage. 2) A Force miracle-like attack which sends out a shock wave, sending enemies flying upon use. Attack is also boosted by 1.25x for approximately 5-6 seconds. 俵sing the Dragon Head Stone or Dragon Torso Stone provides a permanent change that cannot be reversed until death. Rank Requirements Each Dragon Scale you offer to your covenant gives you a point to your next rank. You can obtain Dragon Scales in three ways: 1. Certain chests and items on the ground, such as the one in Blighttown next to the bonfire. Some mobs (such as the Undead Dragon in Valley of the Drakes) have a 100% drop rate for one Dragon Scale as well. 2. Killing Drakes. However, the drop rate for this is extremely rare. 3. Using the Dragon Eye. This item will search for any nearby players with Dragon Scales. If you successfully defeat them, you will receive one Dragon Scale and some souls. Ranks 0 - 0 Dragon Scales. Rewards: Dragon Eye and Dragon Head Stone +1 - 10 Dragon Scales. Rewards: None +2 - 30 Dragon Scales. Rewards: Dragon Stone +3 - 80 Dragon Scales. Rewards: None Betrayal Penalties If you join another covenant, you will lose the ability to use your dragon eye and offer dragon scales, but you will still be able to use your dragon stone. Online Interaction When you place your dragon scale-searching eye on the ground in any location, you do not invade the dragon scale holders world. Instead, "dragon remnants" appear in the same place where you dropped your eye, in the dragon scale holders world, where he/she is given the option of whether to summon you or not. Though this safeguards the fairness of PvP with the dragon Covenant, it is extremely detrimental for the actual Covenant member as it severely lowers the chances of actual MP play. -------------------------- Dark Wraith - Chaotic Evil DAWR -------------------------- A hidden covenant. You get it by speaking to the "Absolute Darkness" that wishes to engulf this world. If you're the kind of player who wishes to constantly invade other people's worlds, this covenant is great because you will be awarded with an invasion item with infinite uses. Joining this Covenant will award you with the Dark Hand, a fist weapon with the ability to steal humanity from another player by using its strong attack. Note: It seems that once you've visited the Abyss, you won't need to wear the Covenant of Artorias ring anymore. Joining 1. Kill Great Wolf Sif and receive his ring, Covenant of Artorias, which will allow you to access The Abyss (you will have to do this even in New Game+, as the game takes away the ring upon completing the game.) 2. Branching path: 姫ath A Do not speak to Framps after obtaining the Lordvessel, then speak to Ingward (NPC with red wizard armor) in New Londo Ruins to receive the key to open the Abyss. Before you acquire the Lordvessel you can trade with Framps all you like. After joining the covenant Framps will disappear. 姫ath B If you wish to join the covenant BEFORE obtaining the Lordvessel, you may kill Ingward 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 Kaathe, the primordial serpent, at The Abyss. You will have the option to Enter Covenant. Effects of covenant 匹racked Red Eye Orb can be bought. 髭quipping Dark Hand on the right hand equipment slot and pressing R2//RT initiates a 'humanity absorbing' attack. Amount of humanities absorbed is dependent on covenant level. This attack can be done on NPCs or online human players. Conversely, equipping it on the left hand equipment slot turns it into a 'blackhole-like' shield. 百iding with Kaanthe is considered the "bad" ending of the game. 筆ust be human to utilize Red Eye Orb. 肘f you fail to defeat your target when you invade, you do not lose your status as human, you do however lose all acquired humanities, therefore you can invade indefinitely with only 1 humanity so long as you don't die in 'your actual world'. (You can also recover your corpse if you were near where you died to regain said lost Humanities) 髭ach time you invade it does inform the invaded; also, if you do kill your target he may put an indictment upon you. Rank Requirements Each humanity turned in nets you a point to your next rank Ranks 0 - 0 Victories (Humanity offered). Rewards: Dark Hand +1 - 10 Victories (Humanity offered). Rewards: Red Eye Orb (allows you to invade indefinitely) +2 - 30 Victories (Humanity offered). Rewards: Dark Sword and Darkwraith Armor set +3 - 80 Victories (Humanity offered). Rewards: Dark Hand (steals more humanity) Betrayal Penalties If you go near Kaathe while a member of the Princess Guard Covenant he will DISAPPEAR for the rest of your playthrough. Absolving your sins does not cause him to reappear. ------- Credits CRED ------- This guide is written by Jack Birch (Ultimate_Finale) It was made on Notepad (Font: Lucida Console, size: 10) Special thanks to: My parents, my brothers and sisters for encouraging me to make this guide, my nan for getting me the game. ----- Legal LEGA ----- Copyright to Ultimate_Finale (C) To use any part of this guide contact me and I will more than likely say yes. ------- Contact ------- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PSN: synyster_snipez GameFAQS: Ultimate_Finale You can contact me about anything about this guide, whether it is suggestions, corrections or a new way to do something.
