    It may change. If I feel it gets in the way or obscures the important announcements I may revert it back to sticky. Just testing it for the time being.

    Sorry for the nudge Tolvo, but you worked it out like a champ!

    (Reminder, never approach Emergence with an idea.)

    It's all good, I understand if it gets reverted back to a Sticky. Either way thanks for the help, I'm hoping a people do get some good use out of it.

    Be careful about approaching Emergence with an idea unless you're willing to follow through on it haha.

    There is a link in the main post leading to the PvP Build section of the Wiki, that is a spot for such builds to be added in a centralized area.

    It's not a sample build though, it's a guide that explains how to build an SL120 character efficiently. Have a look.

    Ah, alright then. I will add that to the description since it is already in the main post.

    EDIT: Added.

    Does anyone think I should add User Made Covenants to the page as well? I'm a bit torn on this, while they deserve more attention this thread is more so for sending people to spots where they can learn and be informed about the game in general. What do you guys think?

    Yes I feel it should.

    The wiki's user covenant page is this

    I'll wait until I get some more Feedback in regards to user made covenants.

    I've also added a page on PvP uses of Pyromancy.

    EDIT: Also added the Gravelord Cursebook, a listing of all known Black Phantom Mobs that appear in Cursed Worlds.

    Added A Newbie's Tale. Jesus christ guys, looking through that thread you've gone above and beyond, it really shows just how helpful this community is. Even if you've beaten the game I suggest you thumb through, it is a very interesting read and pretty heart warming if I must say. I'm a big old softy so it's a bit lame of me, but I love that threads like this exist.

    Tolvo can you change the title of this post? I don't think newbies know what are resource threads, lol.

    Maybe if enough people think there should be a change. Also I haven't gotten enough feedback yet on User Covenants and whether they should be added.

    Well see it comes down to that this thread is for useful game information, and while user covenants are fun they're not really great resources for players you know? I added Gravelord's united which is sort of a User Cov thing, but because it was full of so much information about Gravelords. Maybe if the other user covs have information that players can use like tactics, use of armor sets, weapons etc, then I should add them.

    Added a short thread detailing information about levelling up in regards to reasons to, or not to. Useful for those who wonder why so many people play at SL120.

    EDIT: I also added another thread detailing the importance of upgrading the proper weapons.

    Added the forum Introductions thread for new and old members. If I see it really isn't an interesting thing for most I may remove it though.

    I've added a section for useful videos. If you know of any link them to me and I'll look them over. I'm looking more for informative things, rather than merely videos of people PvP'ing. Also if a video contains any information about glitches, mods, etc, I will not link it in the thread.

    Some were talking about a videos section of the forum, and they aren't sure about where exactly to post them. I've decided to add a section for interesting videos, or rather important videos. I've started it with Epic Name Bro's video on the difficulty, experience, and love of Dark Souls. I won't be adding the videos that everyone makes no, that's not the point. But his video is something everyone might want to see, it's a well informed review of the game and describes just what it is we all love about the game.

    If you have a video that is either important, or very useful just link it to me and I might add it.

    Out of curiosity is there an abbreviations or glossary thread I can check out to look up all of the abbreviations frequently used on this forum? I've searched and I couldn't find anything. I can figure out most of the abbreviations based on the context of the thread but it would be nice to have a "Commonly Used Abbreviations" thread or something to that effect.

    We actually have a thread and a page for that already, I think Emergence may have set it up so messaging him would probably be the way to go. I'm searching for it myself and I'll link to the pages, but it may take me a bit to do it manually.
