    Glad to hear of your impending return. And yes, there have been developments! We are evolving. twisted 

    When a thing or person (for that matter) ceases to evolve it soon dies.  Though, I must admit that the Exiled of Ariamis Covenant has taken on a life of it's own. A healthy, robust life! And it's Life-Blood is ALL of you!!

    Using base stats to be able to buff always works out, because you'll have a lot of points to work with in the end when it's all said and done. That's why i'm trying this OGS faith build for the arena. Very low requirements lets me have 50 faith. Might as well buff it.

    Leet, you are using the Obsidian Gs does not scale anyway, I has no stat points for that much investment into either str or dex.

    Yup. Plus the AoE will work wonders in the arena.

    I only use it during wake ups. The animation seems to last pretty long so when people try to dodge it tends to still hit them.

    it can probably be piviot parried. the dkga can be piviot parried with its aoe.

    you'll want to dead angle to avoid that, which exposes you to a roll bs.

    not at range no, same as the other aoe's.

    I haven't tried, but I see no reason why you would be unable to parry the actual downward thrust, and even if you can't you can still partial parry the wave to avoid the damage, which means you're still going to want to deadangle to avoid it, and should still be wary of a roll bs made easier because you've exposed your back.

    I strictly only do it during a wake up, or if i feel 100% confident i can get away with it. That build is for the arena. Basically if i bs someone, or parry someone, as soon as the animation is done, and i mean to the millisecond, i do the R2. Yes you can roll away from it if timed right. It seems as if the AoE lasts longer than it seems. I can't explain it. Like, if you look at the attack and flames go everywhere, even though it looks like you wouldn't take damage going near it, it still will hurt you. So people roll away from it but when their roll is over they still take damage. On top of that, when i DMB buff it, it does almost 1000AR.

    And i have yet to have someone even attempt to parry it. 99.9% of people roll away because it's riskier trying to parry a DMB buffed OGS than just getting out of the way. Maybe i'll do a test and see if it's possible.


    Also, i have to be 2 handing the weapon during the bs or parry because i have to do the AoE as soon as i can. If i have to 2 hand it, and then hit R2, they have a ton of time to escape.

    Do you know if AoE attack speeds vary? I'd imagine so.

    Greetings Exiled!

    I will be adding "ranking up" challenges. As usual I would like to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

    Give this some thought and try to be creative. Each challenge for ranking up can be multi tiered and increasingly difficult. I would suggest no more then a three-tiered challenge for each rank. Those ranks being: Rank 1: Disciple, Rank 2: Velka's Blade, and Rank 3: Lifehunter.

    As for the rank 3: Lifehunter, the next step up is Council Member as it stands now. I am looking at filling at least two CM positions possibly three. But I would also like to come up with another promotion option for the Lifehunter rank.

    Just remember that though fighting skills are very important (pvp/pve). A good pvper/pve'r does not necessarily possess effective leadership skills. However, those can be learned and should be recognized within the rank structure of a covenant.

    Chime in with suggestions!

    Thanks!

    I have an idea. How bout a challenge where you duel "insert covenant member here" using something like a +15 broken straight sword or something you'd never try to use in PvP. That might be a little hard of a challenge, but it's something. Or maybe just a weapon out of someone's comfort zone that doesn't do a ton of damage. Maybe a whip or something. 


    I was also gonna say they have to play Robs, but it's a challenge for me playing Robs even with weapons i play with everyday. Just a thought though.

    I'm trying to think of things that can be proven. You can't really say "Farm 10 dragon scales" because of MM and you can't really proved that person farmed them, already had them in their possession, or had someone give them to them.

    The most viable thing i can think of is something with dueling. Possibly play a member using a bare fist, instead of a shield (wouldn't make much of a difference, to me at least.) Maybe no armor, or no poise. Duel a member using nothing but parrys (that might be too much of a challenge for some, plus whoever their dueling will know they're only going for parrys.) Ummmm. Maybe kill a member using nothing but the dragon head. Kill a member using the pierce shield or crystal ring shield. Suck "insert amount of humanity here" from a member.

    Just trying to get the ball rolling, that's all i got for now. I'd like to rank up. Also, wherever it says "a member" i had Robs in mind the whole time. I figure he's the best candidate because he plays like a normal person, and is a challenge to duel even with your build of choice.

    i have one idea but with different options.

    what if we do a scavenger challenge.

    so there will be weapons around the fight area almost at their breakpoint, so close that after a few hits the weapon will break and the player will have to pick up another wep to keep fighting his opponent 'til one of them dies

    OR

    there can be three different weapons so after each fight the player will keep fighting until the matches are over ( the player with more kills will win).

    all kinds of weapons DEX,STR,MAGIC,FAITH etc


    i would also suggest that the player have to be naked only with wolf ring on and nothing more but thats just me devil
