    Joining DarkWraith / Acquiring Very Large Ember

    Post by Enzakiel on Sun Apr 14, 2013 8:09 am

    Hey!


    I'm SL97 at the moment and just cleared Anor Londo on my first playthrough. From what I gathered from various walkthroughs, what I want to do right now is upgrade my Iaito from +10 to +15 and then join the DarkWraith Covenant.

    I'm in the forest covenant right now and before I can join DarkWraith I will have to leave forest covenant right? If I buy everything from Shiva of the East, get the Dark Wood Grain ring and Ring of Fog, I can safely quit the forest covenant and not suffer any loss for the rest of my playtrough right?

    I'm just looking to figure out the order of things right now. I have the lord vessel...Do I go through New Londo Ruins right now and retrieve the Very Large Ember first or do I need to join the Darkwraith first before I can retrieve it? I'm a bit lost. I just don't want to screw anything up with the DarkWraith.

    Thanks.

    If you are in the forest covenant, you don't need to buy everything. Just go to Oswald in the Tower where the first bell is. He will let you leave a covenant safely.

    You can get the Very Large Ember whenever you want. If you know where it is, as long as you have drained the water, there is no set time when you can get it.

    You have the Lordvessel, so yes, go down to New Londo Ruins with it, and do what you usually do to get to the 4 kings and kill them. If you have the Lordvessel in your possession, Kaathe will appear, and let you join the Darkwraiths.

    You can also join the Darkwraiths before even getting the Lordvessel, just by killing the 4 kings, and then talking with Kaathe.

    Do you mean that when I leave the covenant safely I can still buy stuff from Shiva in Blight Town Swamp?

    "If you have the Lordvessel in your possession, Kaathe will appear, and let you join the Darkwraiths." You already contradict yourself in the next sentence, but whatever.

    Possessing the lordvessel is not important when it comes to making Kaathe appear. What is important however, is not having placed the lordvessel without his help.

    If you talk to Frampt, he takes you to the altar, and you then place the lordvessel, that'll piss off Kaathe and he'll never appear, or disappear if you already made him appear.

    If you just jump down the hole where Frampt is and place the lordvessel without making either snake bring you there, they'll both be pissed off, and they'll both disappear.

    Also, just so you know, there's no requirement to join the Darkwraiths, unless you're after all achievements or something. (The Darkwraith Armor and the Red Eye Orb are, I believe, the only things you can get from the Covenant that can't be obtained elsewhere)

    Yeah I just like the armor set and the orb sounds nice for invasions.

    The Dark Armour is nice but make sure you have plenty of soft humanity since you will need to offer 30 in total to Kaathe in order to get the armour and sword!

    i would recommend killing both Shiva and his ninja buddy, that will automatically kick you out from the covenant but you will get the Dark Wood Grain Ring and the Murokumo, a really good weapon btw.

    if it turns out you don't like being a darkwraith, then you can absolve your sins through Oswald and rejoin the forest cov., but shiva won't come back until your next play through.

    No. When you use Oswald you won't be a sinner, that's it. So yes, you should finish up with the Forest covenant before moving on.
