    Hmm, we might actually have a wireless keyboard around here somewhere, thanks for the advice.

    The GL sword is pretty good in my opinion. It can dead angle, has decent range, decent damage, a toxic effect, and can stunlock.

    Yes and no.

    Yes because it can inflict Toxic, no not poison, TOXIC!

    My most recent exeperience with it saw me using it in the right with a talisman in my left with the Sword Dance at the ready. I'd two hand rolling attack them the immeadiately switch to my talisman. They'd run in for the BS and get caught in the swords.

    PM Gravelord hunter if you want a full run down of it as he uses it almost exclusively. Or Tolvo. He's great with curved greatswords.

    I'll probably put it in the secondary right slot. Then i'll whip it out to pressure my opponent, because, cmon, toxic scares the crap out of everybody.

    Toxic can kill, it is not like poison but I am sure you know that. I also use it as a secondary weapon with a pestilence build I have. I left hand a chaos pike, right hand a large club and switch the the GL sword.

    Lol I wish there was a poison upgrade tree. That would be fantastic. Lol you could use Dung Pies in place of titanite. I'm sure if you rub poop on something long enough I'll pick up some pretty nasty diseases.

    haha thats funny, Dellusions pestilence build is the closest to a poison upgrade tree. buff large club, throw poison arrows, then once that effect has been applied. throw dung pies and gravelord sword haha

    Excuse me, but I'm pretty sure it should be found in the Depths, it's just too fitting. There could even be a spot where there's just a dark ring around it, like nothing even wants to go near it.

    Yes! It should be in the giant rat room by its... Err, behind. Then if you give Donhnall enough souls while in the depths he'll tell you all about, and also use lots of vulgar lanugage.

    Haha, brown ember. Love it :heart: I always thought that about a poison upgrade. I use the GL sword, poison pyro etc sometimes but I really like the idea of a proper pestilence build. Regarding gravelord-appropriate setups, I always wished that 'undead rapport' worked differently so you could have minions like Papa Nito. That would be epic.

    All right, just made my GL. I ran throught the catycombs and joined the second i got to firelink. So far i've raised my stats so i can one-hand the GLS and my attunment so i can use gravelord sword dance. As of yet i have been hesitant to use EoDs, as i only have three. Anywho, just thought i'd let you know if you wanted to keep a list of GLs or somthing.

    Happy plauging to all.

    Walked in on a really strange conversation.

    I'm here to ask you Gravesworn how come I've played Dark Souls for waaay over 1,000 hours and have only been successfully GL'd twice. Last time was a long time ago, too. Get with the program and spread the nasty!

    Do you think I'd have a better chance of being GL'd if my character is one too? Does soul level matter at all? I want to experience these bp skeledogs Sparkly keeps mentioning.

    EoDs are actually very easy to farm if you don't mind doing a few runs in the Depths. Go from the bonfire and through where Kirk appears to the bit where there's a sort of room on two levels. You should get around 8 or 9 frogs and at least 3 or 4 eyes per run with the CGSR and a few humanity. Get the homeward miracle and you can just keep repeating until you're happy happy Obviously getting eyes from SoVs is more fun, but it's nice to have a few to get started.

    Plus you can GL down there while doing the runs, I used to do that when I was a low level, farming and GL'ing.

    The reason why you have not been gravelorded more often is because there are not enough gravelords playing on a consistent basis.
    We need more gravelords.

    Well, if you gravelord with other gravelords then yes you will have a higher chance of seeing BP than if you don't.

    Soul level is very important. The EoD has the same range as the WSS (white soap stone). So besides not enough gravelords the range is limited by a stupid decision made at FROM.

    If you join then you will add to the misery and the more that join the more misery is spread so please join!

    Yes, i'm on PSN. I'm around 15-20 at the moment, but i should be around sl 30 by tomorrow. That would be super awesome if you could get me some. Even if you cant, however, it is a very kind offer.

    I have a similar build but at SL 24 i you could be at the parish at that SL I'll try to summon you and drop the goodies. TBH he's jusy a BBed char who I wanted to try out the Gravelord sword on. Not one I'd consider playing with.

    You can drop a WSS with the area boss dead and be summoned, you only can't summon people if the area boss is dead.
