    Why did you become a Blade of the Darkmoon?

    Post by bmurn on Mon Apr 16, 2012 3:11 pm

    Somewhat new, as far as posting, to the forum and thought it would be interesting to hear the logic behind people joining the Darkmoon covenant. I have been in most of the covenants at one time or another but keep coming back to this one.

    It started in the demon ruins. Up to that point I had been invaded occassionally, been killed, and then moved on. I never had much trouble finding help for bosses and getting to the boss before an invader could reach me, but that changed as I was coming up on the firesage demon. I think it was five times in a row that I became human and the same invader showed up and crushed me. I tried all kinds of tactics hiding in different spots to surprise, changing gear, etc. but nothing worked. It was tremendously frustrating burning through my humanity and each time hoping for a summon sign to show up prior to the invasion by the Darkwraith. It was then wash, rinse, repeat with the centipede demon, a constant stream of invaders. Every time I would consume a humanity and reverse hollowing the clock was ticking. It made for a lot of stressfull moments...

    So, in the end, my simple mind demanded revenge and I became a darkmoon. I still am not good at PVP but have started to win some fights and maybe will some day feel that I have erased the scars that the darkwraiths have left on me. No surpise I spend a good deal of time using the blue orb in the demon ruins...happy

    I've always been quite a fan of punishing people who may be very poor sports in PvP, as well I don't mind the odd duel or invasion fight. This is even one of the reasons I'm a forest hunter, to punish the gankers. But now that I see most indict for totally poor reasons, or even it's worn as a badge of honour in PvP I don't darkmoon for that reason. Now I do it as a means of fighting newer players, while I equip myself with weak gear and fight them to give them a friendlier PvP experience than most are probably used to.

    I'm surprised Forum hasn't posted here yet.

    Also, welcome to the foumrs.

    I played dms and always got ganked by phantoms. When DkS came I saw an opportunity to put my passive aggressive nature to good use, and joined the blades partly out of vengeance but, I also see them as protectors of order, which speaks to me.

    Tolvo - thanks for the welcome. I wish I could say my motivation was as noble as yours. But I don't think that is the case...

    Blade - sounds like we share some of the same motivation.

    Welcome to the forums. I have not yet joined the Darkmoons but I have a toon in mind which will represent the player made covenant Protectors of Lord Gwyn. It fits the lore quite nicely and its one of the few things left for me to do in Dark Souls

    I tried to join this one a few weeks ago, it did not ended very well. It was an old build and a darkwraith, I was having really good duels, no ganking, in high traffic areas like painted world and kiln. So Tried to join the darkmoons. First I thought that to invade, I had to be human like the darkwraiths, I had no idea that you could invade while hollow. Darkmooners were invading me all the time, I thought that so strange, and the blue eye orb seems to take so much longer to invade than the Red eye, at least for me. The times I invaded, the host never bowed and killed me, and dark anor londo invasions were ridiculous.

    Now that I'm better at PVP, I might try join this Cov again

    I joined the Dark Moons because my char started as a thief. I got a whole final fantasy one idea and figured he would grow up to be an assassin. I stuck around for DMB. I love me that buff. Also I mainly invade in the forest and I dig being the same color as the forest hunters. Shows solidarity.

    One of the Main Reason of being a Darkmoon Member is the upper devastating Darkmoon Blade Buff. Making my Katana a "Disco-Stu" blue shiny "Pain-in-the-***-stick".
    Blue Orb is also *bling-bling* cool for having me invading as hollow, and the ring for additional PvP actions.
    For me the most beneficiary covenant to be with. Althought collecting 80 ears is also pain in the ***.

    Just my 2 cents

    Hold on tolvo, I was asleep when OP made the topic.

    I'm a darkmoon for similar reasons to op. It took forever to get anywhere due to a constant barrage of wraiths in maxed gear. People picking on others who had no reasonable way of defending themselves. Its bullying and I've always hated bullies (got in lots of fights at school protecting people) so I invade as a dm to give what wraiths i can find a taste of their own medicine.

    I also chill in areas like the burg and wait for the least lucky griefers in the universe to invade me then pimp slap them around for a few minutes so they can feel what it is to be helpless.

    To avoid becoming what I despise, I never invade before Anor londo, unless i'm sl 120+ so i'm getting ng+ers not sl 60 newbies.

    I also enjoy pvp but take no pleasure in "trouncing weaklings" and dming after sens reduces my chances of catching beginners.

    Takeno - The ability to invade while hollow is great. No need to worry about having enough humanity (although I use Queelag's fury sword most of the time so I need to keep 10 humanity active).

    Forum - I think as my PVP improves my intentions will become more noble (anti bullying as opposed to a vendetta). For now I pretty much invade wherever I happen to be, which includes the UP and UB, but my sl of 120 makes it highly unlikely that I will get a true noob. I would say that less than 1% of the people I invade end up being easy wins for me. Lately I've had a lot of double death results.

    In other news I landed my first PVP parry/riposte last night. A glorious moment. Then I lost. Stupid target would not let me do it to them again...

    Now don't be rude to him, he did a bit of Necrobumping, but he's new. I know you guys are paling around, but remember he doesn't know you guys yet so he might take this the wrong way.

    Lol when youn invade down no it bloody well isn't.

    Im primarily a DM because I hate DW's due to being a Gravelord so long.

    To me an invading spirit who is not invading due to my sign is evil as hell.

    Other than that I orignallu joined because I had false notions of justice about this cov back when I was starting out.

    Then I just realised I was a DW in blue.......

    Viral we can only invade down based on sin; unless they have a lot of sin aka pvp a lot the level difference won't be that big.

    I know how it works but that doesnt change that we invade down. How ever I don't care because Im punishing those who the game tells me deserve it.

    I became a blade of the darkmoon because they have the best talisman in the game silly and because it made gwyndolin even more indignant when I walked in and whooped him silly

    Funny because my DM at sl 106 just invaded a 120. .1*106=1o.6 106+10.6=116.6. Next theory.

    On my DM's, I've never gone above 10%, a common number many have found through their testing. Similar to the Dark Wraith invading 10% downwards. Please do try and be civil.
