    Improved Dragon Covenant Powers?

    Post by Johnthethird on Mon Feb 11, 2013 9:29 pm

    Dragons seem to play a much larger roll in dark souls 2, so the dragon covenant will likely return. Also, the "transcend death" seems very similar to what the dragons represent.

    Because of this, I propose that fromsoft implement new dragon abilities in order to make the dragon covenant more worthwhile.

    First off, I think that the dragonoids should have wings. Now this would not let them fly everywhere. It would let them hover above the ground for a while during a fight, and if they are falling it would either slow them down like a parachute, or let them glide like a hang glider. Obviously this would only be allowed for very high level dragon covenant members, and you would only be able to use it if you also had the dragon body stone equipped. In order for this to not be too OP, lets make this take up a ring slot.

    Secondly, (I don't know if they already have this) I think that when in dragon form, your claws should do bleed damage.

    Thirdly, I believe that there should be multiple head stones. As we know, there are multiple types of dragons. There are fire types, lightning types, etc. so I think that you should have a lightning headstone, a fire headstone, an abyss headstone, a death headstone (pink breath from unleaded dragons), or a magic dragon headstone (seathe)

    So, I am curious to see your IDeas as well.

    Can I just interject and again reiterate that we don't even know if covenants are returning yet! And even if they are will the dragon covenant really come back in the same form?

    We know nothing about what's gonna happen to the cov system, if it's being used again.. I personally think it'll be reinvented. There's a new director, and the guy is banned from messing with the core gameplay and spirit of the game. I think the way the online play is presented is gonna be one of the key areas where he'll put his own unique stamp on the game. Maybe he'll simply evolve the current concept, or completely come up with something new?

    I think there's a strong possibility of dragon related abilities returning, I just don't know if they'll come back in the same covenant vein.

    I'm just speculating. We can still make guesses about things without having 100 percent evidence.

    I made a thread about a dragon covenant revamp before. Maybe you should read it. I have a feeling you'll find it interesting.

    I second Serious_Much. I have serious doubts that covenants will return. Should they actually return, I still have serious doubts that they will look anything like the ones on DkS.

    Still, some good ideas on improvements and all. If they do return, I do wish they all changed dramatically one's play style and gave unique and meaningful rewards.

    Please, call me Serious winking

    I agree with everyone that they should be expanded upon. I think making them more integral to shaping a character would be an interesting development of the series. I think recognising the fact that covenants have potential to really help redefine online play and the way we shape our characters could really evolve the series, and bring in the special twist the new developer wants

    I just think that if my Idea of making dragons more OP is going to work, there would need to be some sort of committment for it. Like you could only use it while in its covenant.

    guys covenants have been confirmed just not any specific ones have been announced. They will be overhauled and revamped. in ways. What this means, who knows lol but covenants are a big part or Dark Souls.
    and again there has already been a thread about the dragon covenant lol come on guys this is only adding clutter and making information be repeated and or lost.

    Covenants will be confirmed once they are in the final product. Since they were 'confirmed' with the game not even at alpha stage, I'm not holding my breath. And the fact is, the OP had a different take on new ideas for the dragon's covenant, so he/she made a new thread. Are you seriously tell me that this thread bothers you because it's 'cluttering' a not very active forum? (compared to vanilla DkS most days) Jeesh.

    Well I did not see that other thread. Now I made this thread about my Idea. I would rather just no one replies than people discuss other threads and confirmation and stuff.

    no_face, it saddens me that you feel the need to needlessly complain about stuff. Certainly there are more appropriate ways to vent your frustrations, other than empty comments on a dark souls forum?

    "organizes everything better for readers" -- That's an interesting argument considering you can't even punctuate your sentences correctly.

    I accept the burn but that doesn't change the fact that people should read other threads before posting a new one. Some very good posts can be lost this way and proper credit to those users should be permitted.
