    I quite like the idea of being a Servant of Chaos mainly because the main characters are female and the most popular covenants all seem to be based on male characters. Being female myself it has a certain appeal and, no , I am not a man hater before anyone suggests that I am.

    Well, being on the subject of the Chaos Servants, lets talk some lore. First of all, Ceaseless Discharge. I haven't killed him yet, but I need the chaos and fire embers, along with the Orange Charred Ring. Miyazaki said you DONT have to kill CD, but to do it the other way seems like a glitch or bug to someone who doesn't know about it according to what EpicNameBro read in the Design Works. The Design Works also confirmed that CD is the Brother of Chaos, so killing him is kinda a don't for me because, well, I worship their family lol. Has anyone come across the "glitch" by chance?

    Already killed the Bed of Chaos with him alive, with enough Fire Res and flasks, you can just run through the lava to the Capra demons. Though there won't be a bonfire until you kill the Firesage, so you have to do it in one shot.

    There's another female on this site? What the hell? What happened to the internet I knew and loved, where men could argue for hours about which version of their anime fan fiction was the best!

    Oh Tolvo, I thought you knew! Does this mean you don't like me anymore? If you say 'yes' I'll be devastated.

    Cooties, I don't want anything to do with em! We must now end our online friendship thingy! Men and women just can't be friends for no reason at all, and I agree with it!

    I also ran to the Centipede, cut off his tail getting the ring, then went back to Ceaseless and ran around his feet and picked up the Chaos Ember, discovered nothing though other than that his feet actually have hitboxes, they designed all of him oddly enough, I always figured only the top half of him had any real work put into it.

    An internet female? Quick add her!

    The chaos covenant has some amazing story. If you do make a user made convenant I would like to make a suggestion - Put in two different roads to travel. Followers of the chaos flame and followers of the flame of disparity. Dispairty followers cannot make use of chaos magics while chaos followers must equip every chaos spell they have at all times. Then have the ps3 leader in charge of one and the xbox leader in charge of the other (of course people can choose either road regardless of console).

    It would be nice if gettin gthe egghead to around 1,000,000 souls unlocked the secret rank 3 bonus for the servants.

    Well Tolvo, you have just given me a new painful objective lol. And so far, from every post I've seen online, people have never gone further than 500,000 souls for the egghead, so maybe there is more to it.

    I just got a computer working, but now my xbox wont even turn on, so its gonna be interesting trying to start this covenant. I'll prob fix it or get a new one by the time I'm done writing up the covenant.

    i did the egg head thing one playthrough. it took A LOT of souls to get the larva attack i mean a lot. and once it gets bigger like that the fire dmg you take seems to increase 10x. it was cool for a few hrs but the work it took to get to that point was not worth it

    I waited till ng+ to get the egghead again. Half souls don't matter much in ng+ and with the silver serpent ring, it really feels like your not losing much. I have dark anor londo and i make about 9k a pop with the silver serpent ring on the two npcs in the middle of the cathedral.

    had one as well... you do get stuff from the chaos cov if you get the egg head then attempt to join if i remember correctly eigngy gives you a pyro flame and offers to upgrade it as well. also its the only way to make him sell the toxic mist pyromancy. btw since the orange charred ring and kirks leggings increase kick damage would wearing these two items make the egghead a viable weapon?

    The egghead only has two stages affaik. It will consume half your souls, and must absorb 100,000 to evolve to stage two, so you need to farm a total of 200,000. If you use consumable soul items instead, it only takes 100,000 to evolve. You can also get the egghead while you have the dragon head, but the dragon headstone can't be used until you cure the egghead. It's still funny to cure the egghead mid-match to have a dragon pop out silly

    I had a theory that selecting 'top-heavy' physique during character creation would make it even larger, but I'm not sure. I made this stage two egg just for you, with a 'big-head' character:

    if you still have this character could you test the effect of the orange charred ring on the maggot attack?

    I'd have the ring by now if my xbox didn't fry lol. I've tried searching, no one has said anything about it working with the head.

    Haven't gotten the ring yet on this character, but I don't think it adds anything to the attack.

    The more souls you get, the bigger the head. My egghead is now bigger than my round shield, after 400k souls. Still have it.

    Y'know, I'm going to make a pyro build soon anyways.
    I can get to lvl 180 with all of the souls in my bb (I use the glitch for easily leveled toons) and I usually get 50,000 to 300,000 souls when I pvp.
    So I guess I'll see if the above is true and if there's some hidden 3rd stage.

    Items that give souls do not effect the egg head

    Ya. I have been feeding it the souls of those I killed, with only using item souls for leveling up. The egg has grown thicker and rounder than my torso now, with possibly almost a million souls drained into it. Plus, the worm has also grown thicker (and seems to show farther reach, although uncertain). It's a good helmet, although Helping others is hard with only 25 precent souls coming your way instead of 50, without the silver ring (which I always wear with evil eye). The egg grows with me...

    Of course, as the worm is bigger than the egg, I suspect a lost of organs as well as my head being hollowed out for it's comfort.
