    You can rush past them all easy once you know the way. A long weapon, like a spear or halberd handles them with ease, as each hit knocks them back and you will be out of their attack range.

    If you are an undead and clerics hunt undead, then why they don't attack you on sight?

    ^ because undead are hunted only in the outside world.
    Lions would be hunted when they entered the city, but people don't go into the wild to hunt them just because they're dangerous. Hunting undead in Lordran would be the same thing.

    Frampt. The darkness has stunted Kaathe's growth, hence his hatred for Frampt. I know this for certain.

    I believe its because you have not yet developed the darksign.

    Tap L1 while a weapon is in each hand, with the bow being in the left. Tap L1 again and you will "scope".

    Ok, so by outside world then it means anywhere but Lordran?

    To me that is one point that never made complete sense...

    Anyway, thanks for your answer. Proper Bow

    My friend is coming over this weekend. If things goes as planned, he will bring his xbox. I will ask of him to help me test out the poise damage dealt with Great Combustion and Force if no one else has answered it by then.

    How does damage calculation actually work? Is it as simple as AR-defences, or is there some underlying calculation that determines how much damage you take?

    Most of the Covenants have some form of item reward, ranging from Items to Miracles, however most of them are aimed towards use in online.

    The only one that has no online function is the Chaos Servant Covenant, which grants two Pyromancy's for ranking up, as well as allowing you to unlock a shortcut, bypassing two bosses.

    This Page will explain each covenant far better than I could, however they may have slight spoilers. If you want to avoid all spoilers, just say and someone will give a spoiler-free explanation of each one.

    And you can only be a member of one at a time. You can leave your Covenant at any time by talking to a specific NPC, or performing an action to anger the covenant you're in (So that they boot you out), or simply asking another NPC to join their Covenant (Which will remove you from the one you're in).

    Technically the Chaos Covenant does have an online function. It's nothing much really, but there is still something. What i'm talking about is the list you can use to see other Chaos Servants.

    I know GC does 40 Poise damage, but I don't know about Force.

    I'll add unsolicited that Black Flame breaks 65 poise. I'm slowly trying to get all the casts' poise numbers.

    At 40 poise GC breaks your guard. At 41, it doesn't affect you at all.

    Moving on to Force now.

    Even with full Havels, Force still affects you. You get pushed back no matter what. It doesn't break your guard at all, even with a small shield and 0 poise. I hope that helped. Anything else you're curious about, while me and Bloodpact91 are playing around?

    I know force can stagger someone in full Havels'...but on the first try? I always thought it took 2 or 3 casts.

    Could you clear up the Black Flame thing by chance?

    And thanks a lot Tart!
