    The problem is really that people don't like dms. We have a terrible reputation. I am, and a few others are, quick to jump down throats when its mentioned here, so it isn't talked about much, but general dm hate is widespread.

    As a dm exclusive cov, your biggest problem will be finding active dms, will to admit to being a dm, who also want to join, for whatever reason. Thats a tall order,

    I'm only aware of 5 dms on this forum, and the recent (highly illogical) surge of dmb (the buff) hate will only make things tougher for you. Not sure what I advice I can offer.

    Umbasa. Would you like to be a part of this covenant?

    If so, what console and build.

    I'd like the members to be more active too, you don't have to be on all the time but post here once in a while to let me know you are still around when you join. It seems like my other members aren't on much. (Although they are awesome for joining)

    @Forum. Why do people hate Darkmoons?

    Lots of reasons. We invade down, even if its fairly uncommon to invade very far down.

    The phantom color switch glitch has had wraith griefers invade sinless players as blue phantoms, falsly discrediting the sin requirements and leading people to believe the sl 20 griefer wraith was actually a much higher sl dm.

    There are fewer dms, so the griefers stand out.

    Misplaced hate of wog, which most dms have and pair with dmb.

    Resentmen for dmb being the strongest buff in game and dm exclusive, despite the prevolance of easy ways to reduce magic damage where few are present to reduce the lightning damage of slb.

    Viewed as "cowards" because we can invade hollow, apparently we're afraid of losing. I attribute this to envy because dms can choose the conditions of their fights better than wraiths.

    Many co-op players use cracked red orbs in their spare time and don't like dealing with dms when they want to co-op or feel dm invasions against them are unjust.

    Based on that list I've determined that most DM haters really suck at the game. Why should we care what they think?

    I have a darkwraith sorcerer and deal with WotG using and DMB buffing DM's just fine.

    Its not that they suck, necessarily, but that they're misinformed, envious, or possess some moral or fairness based qualm with what and how dms do things.

    I'm not saying you should care what they think, but as they comprise the vast majority of the community, dms are extremely scarce by comparison. This will make recruitment more difficult than it is for other covenants.

    I see. Do you think I would get more members co-oping and looking for people using DMB?

    Of course. I am laying out my build right now and will link it when it is finished. It will most definitely utilize a Greatsword, Dark Moon blade, and be very aggressive.

    PS- I'm PSN.

    Looks good Umbasa. I have a 200 Darkmoon, maybe we could invade forest or dark anor together and get the same people once in a blue moon.

    What is Your ID? Mine is Amadeous313 add me.

    Possibly, recruiting randoms is bound to work eventually. Setting up a chat and messaging dms you meet asking if they're interested is an excellent idea, especially if you direct them here and make the op nice, organised, informative, and (for lack of a better word) fancy.

    The NK and gravesworn ops are good examples. They contain enough lore to allow role playing, but don't require it either, they're well put together, and make the rules, goals, and activities readily apparent.

    Organising events is also a good incentive, friendly competition encourages improvement and cooperation, and periodic meetings contribute to a sense of unity and purpose.

    I would actively recruit here as well

    Its cool Dough.

    I thought a cool idea for this covenant and I don't know if the others do this, is continuously expanding lore. More lore arises for every chapter of the covenants history with every war and such. Even some plot twists might release eventually.

    Oh and I can work with the expanding. I don't want to bother you with new lore every month. I have this thing written in my head like a Shakespeare play.

    Some others do, but its done in a separate thread to prevent clutter.

    Sort of, kind of an uneasy alliance lore wise because the Noble Knights hate our methods of killing.

    I saw the OP and it's better now. Remain in the good ways and stay away from the evil then the Knights would consider the messengers of Velka as our messengers to our enemies winking

    I invaded A sinner in the forest the other day dealing with a Darkwraith. Prime example of a Velka invasion. I watched the sinner retreat to the top of the stairs by fog gate while The wraith was at the bottom turtling.

    Wraiths are sinners too of course. I waste the Darkwraith at the bottom of the stairs. The sinner thought I was his friend and dropped me some items. Costly mistake. When he faced the edge I went patches on him.

    If you are a sinner never trust someone in a Velka mask twisted

    I unfortunately need to back out of this covenant for a short time. My free time is dwindling and I have pre-existing promises to a different covenant.
