    Blades of the Darkmoon

    Post by Elite Knight on Thu Nov 08, 2012 9:21 am

    So, I re-joined the Darkmoon Blades and decided to try my (albeit awful) hand at PvP. I've been reading over some of the topics in this section and decided to make this topic and ask if I could get some pointers.

    I'm bad at PvP, but the Darkmoon Blades seems to be the best place to get some practice, considering opponents are mostly PvP veterans.

    I was wondering if I could get any tips from other Blades on this site. I know what to expect from those I invade, as I expect a majority of them to be Darkwraiths.

    I've gone over some tactics, looked over builds, and even read over the "Play to win" topic. But is there anything else I can do? My build needs work, I'll say as much, and that I know to work on. But as a complete failure at PvP, is there anything else I need to prepare myself for (other than dying, of course)? I'm coming off as a total noob here, but in regards to PvP, I suppose I really am.

    Basically, what's the most effective way to be a Darkmoon Blade?

    I would consider inditing all players that kill you when you get invaded, not nearly enough people indite for the darkmoon blades to get the same amount of invasions as darkwraiths.

    You'll need to target areas where darkwraiths will need to go through, where they won't be always actively invading. You need to consider that a lot of darkwraiths kill the boss for the area they are invading so their searching isn't interrupted by constant invasions, this will limit the amount of people you can invade.

    Oolacile township is a good location, the bonfire just after Artorias. The forest and darkroot garden are also good choices. You won't invade many darkwraiths there, but you will get forest hunters who have gathered up a bit of sin. You also have the likes of the undead burg and parish, though they can be hit and miss depending on your level.

    As for starting out in pvp, I don't think that a darkmoon blade is the best choice. You have long waiting times between invasions, so it's honestly only worth it if you plan to use the darkmoon faith weapon buff. I would suggest joining the forest covenant or the darkwraiths for a more active pvp experience.

    As a Darkmoon Blade, you are invading lower than your SL. In many cases, much lower. So, often it is easier for you.

    As far as what you need to know, right now, it seems like experience. You have studied. Now, it is time to get out there and see what it is like. Don't try to be perfect. Just get out, invade, pvp, win some, lose some, etc.

    Once you've done that, you'll know more (especially, you'll know what you don't know). Then, come back and ask more questions.

    Well, I'm not brand new to PvP, it's just not my favorite thing to do. But, I actually am going after the Darkmoon Blade miracle as well as the Darkmoon talisman. I also don't like the Forest Hunter covenant. It's just not satisfying. Also, I'm planning on my sorceress/pyromancer to join the Darkwraiths.

    Thanks for the tips guys, I'll try my hand at what I can do, fight, learn and improve. I'll more than likely be back with some questions, but I need to get into some fights before I can know what they will be (obviously. :b)

    Thanks again, I shall return to this later.

    Just a heads up, when you invade in certain spots like the Kiln, Anor Londo, and the Darkroot Forest. You will be fighting 2-3 enemies at once often enough.

    So what I suggest is invading while at a lesser known spot. So they can't spawn kill you. If in the Forest, try deep in the forest or at Alvina's house. If in Anor Londo, the bonfire isn't bad since most wait by O&S. And in the Kiln invade by Gwyn.

    Keep multiple upgraded weapons on your person so that you can fight in different ways. Weapons do have counters so don't find yourself losing a battle because you didn't have the right equipment.

    You'll want to learn to Roll BS probably. It's very useful in a wide array of situations. Sadly I haven't played in a while so I've forgotten how to do it myself haha.

    If you are a faith build/int build, buff your weapon before going in especially if you have Darkmoon Blade. It will give you a great edge in the fight. The buff will be more useful if you are using fast long reaching weapons. Spears, katana, and scythes go really well with it.

    You'll want to learn to toggle escape, and dead angle as well.

    If you don't know these tricks already of course.

    If you wanna get better at pvp,join the darkwraiths,you will be doing mostly 1vs1 against higher sl people.

    I'm thinking of doing them later on. I'm trying not to accumulate sin with my Knight. My sorceress, yes, I'll have her join, eventually. Also, as I said earlier, I'm after the Darkmoon Blade miracle and Darkmoon talisman.

    Thanks for the recommendation though, but I don't think I'm up for Darkwraith duty yet. :b

    When I started to pvp I used to vade demon ruins as a dw sl 60, got plenty of action, guess you could try 80 as dm.

    Been vading royal wood lately sl50, you get two bites of the cherry there.

    I don't have the DLC yet, so I can't do the Royal Wood. I may try the Darkroot Forest.

    I've gotta say, I absolutely love the Darkmoon Blade Covenant. I've tried the Darkwraith and Forest Hunter covenants, but when I invade as a Darkmoon Blade, I find so many more "honorable duels". Also, I don't have to be human to invade and I don't lose anything when I die during an invasion. On the other hand, however, I always feel bad when I tear down a really lower-level player within a matter of seconds. So, if I invade them again, I'll give them a Humanity back. Make no mistake though: some of these low-level players are actually pretty good.

    Edit: I always invade at the Kiln, by the way.

    All I can suggest seeing as my first pvp build was for the Darkmoons is pick a weapon you like, get a cool outfit, invade some and look badass, then try your best to win as many fights as possible until you get some confidence.

    Oh, I have all the equipment I like. My biggest problem I'm facing are failed invasions. I'm not getting a whole lot of activity. The few worlds I did invade ended up with the area's enemies killing my target, or my target challenging the boss before we could fight.
