    I seem to be getting non stop invasions on the PS3 now, and no failed summons. It's so much better! bounce DLC soon for us European people! Joy

    I don't think they can do anything about that, because it's p2p. So it's all up to our ps3's connecting to each other. No servers.

    Definitely improved net code, now you can even see miracle resonance everywhere. I wonder if this also goes to improve Gravelording.

    On PS3 I was still getting a ton of failed summons in the DLC content, including 7-8 in a row to start. Lag also seems about the same. But the patch did indeed improve a lot of other things, including the resonance rings.

    Where did you see them at? I had never seen a single one outside of the ones in the catacombs. Now, after the patch I see them all over the place.

    Basically they increase miracle synergy, making them stronger. I think they stack too, and I've seen around 4 or 5 at once in a group at the Burg, imagine the WoG damage... crazy. They're going to help faith builds quite a bit in the forest silly

    I don't think it's so much improved net code but improved player base. With the DLC alot of players are coming back and in turn making it easier to connect. Except for Battle of Stoicism, which seems to be broken for bad connection players like myself.

    I hate apartment complexes sad

    I think my connection was good then all the time. I saw them in Anor Londo most of the time.

    yeah, if you look at your miracles in the left hand menu thing you'll see a white ring on the icon if there are resonances in range, the more resonances in range the thicker the ring.
