Need serious help.

So I joined the company of champions in a drunken fit. Well I finally figured out what it does. Looked up online and everyone says if I quit the covenant I can resume normal play, summoning, being summoned, etc.

However I talked to the cat and I quit the covenant and yet.... I still can't place my summon sign. WTF

^I haven't touched DS2 in a long time, but that's weird.

All I seem to find is that you should be able to use your sign once you get out of the covenant. Aren't you maybe using your sign in some places you can't be summoned at all? There's small places like that in the Souls games.

Nah I was in good places.

Here's what worked... unplugged my modem and router and did all that. I tried rebooting the ps3 twice before that and nothing.

technology is weird and we have no idea how it works

Is the download of each DLC really only 100kb? The download I had to make yesterday was pretty big to only be a patch. I am only buying access to all that by buying it on PSN?

Hope the Crown of the Ivory King is not that big of a download.

The patches include most of the files from the DLC whether you own it or not, to maintain compatibility. This way, you can still play with anyone even if you own the DLC and they don't, and vice versa.

Ah, alright. I'll have to be careful with the small space I have left on my PS3. Wouldn't be bad to check if I can make some extra space of any game or download I don't need or use anymore.

Thanks.

I think you can be pulled into the DLC zone if you're playing as a blue guardian even if you have the dlc or not.

On a recent run I found greater soul arrow. NICE

Should I upgrade my basic sorcerer's staff?



This is super late but yes you can upgrade your sorcerrer staff and it will noticably increase your spell damage. However, I like to get the lizard staff by farming the necromancers in the executioner's chariot. If it doesn't drop just exit the game and when you relog in you'll be right next to the boss fight entrance. Then just repeat till it drops.

I'd also strongly suggest upgrading your STR to 12 so you can use both the Royal Kite Shield (bought from Blacksmith in The Lost Bastille - requires items from the Iron Keep to unlock this blacksmith) and the Magic Mace (you can find this mace in the huntsman's corpse).

Early on I'd suggest using the fire longsword and 10 STR for the Silver Eagle Kite Shield bought from the armor merchant in Majula.

Buy early sorcerer spells for the merchant in the no man's wharf. Unlock the Pyromancy merchant to supplement your magic spells with fire spells asap. Once you get it, the Magic mace and Fire Longsword will serve you very well. You can literally beat the game with them though you might want to invest further into STR/Dex for better weapons.

Weapons of note: blue flame sword, moonlight greatsword, watcher's greatsword (these are either late game or new game+ weapons though)

Heck, a Large/Great Club infused with magic will do a lot of damage. A Claymore or Halberd infused with magic works almost as well. Crushing damage is just so useful vs armored opponents, you'll always want a hammer type weapon with you just in case.

I upgraded some scimitar to +10 and cast the miracle buff on it. That helps.


For PVP I have a +10 pyromancy flame and just lob great fireballs at them. No amount of dodging lets them completely unscathed from the blast damage. That and some poison mist too.
