    I have been away from Dark Souls for a long time, and I don't know when I'll be playing it again as I no longer have the game. But one of the big issues I had when I still had it was that the GL covenant was not working very well. The wiki says on the GL page that it has been fixed after the last patch. Has it been fixed since the huge patch that changed the shops and stuff?

    I'll try and answer your question, however I have never been apart of the Gravelords, nor played online in some time. Overall the multiplayer has been boosted so that summon signs and invasions have greater frequency, so in a sense Gravelording should have recieved a boost, and from the posts I have read it's seems better. However I do recall a few of the Gravelords that frequent the board say it's still not what it should be, and it could still use improvements.

    I imagine after awhile some of our resident Gravelords can truely answer your question.

    I'm not the best person to answer this, because I don't have much experience with the Gravelord covenant, but until someone more knowledgeable comes along I can tell you that, yes, it works now. You can get a decent amount of activity as a GL now.

    Edit: ninja'd by knight, and neither one of us has a great answer... :|

    So far so good, at least from my experience I've been infected multiple times and I seen and successfully invaded some gravelords since Patch 1.05. Also I had a short (because I got bored) experience being a Gravelord recently with my slvl 42 toon at Anor Londo and I was getting invaded pretty often by Spirits of Vengeance that touched my sign (I killed them and they dropped an Eye).

    I wasn't around before the patch, but as a Gravelord I've had constant invasions through my signs in multiple areas at varying levels. I don't know how it was pre-patch, but currently I really enjoy Cursing areas.

    I've definitely been getting infected, although I've never seen any effects from it. I'll just be playing and I'll get the "disasters are gone" message (which was very startling to me the first time I saw it because I thought it meant that I was getting cursed)

    Well this is all good to hear. And Tolvo, before the patch, you were better off not being in a covenant than being in the GL's. It saved you from hating yourself for having hope that someday, you might get invaded. But only if the video game gods deemed that you suffered enough.

    Yikes, in high traffic areas I can manage to get an invasion every minute through my sign.

    Which makes me happy lol. When I get the game again I'll be super excited to use my GL.

    The trick is just being the proper level in proper areas. I've found New Londo to be very prime, the forest outside the bonfire as well, the painted world I've seen some success as well at low levels the depths is a gold mine. Interesting thing is too you will find a lot of newer players, so if you are new to PvP or getting back into the scene it could be a great testing ground. As well, it's great for introducing others to PvP I've found.

    Ya, I played for like a week after the patch, and went through the game as a GL. I was getting some invasions, just not as many as I wanted. But I bet alot more people are starting to be GL's now that its fixed, so it probably picked up since I've been gone. The depths was a hell hole for me when I was dropping my sign there. Griefers left and right with maxed pyro gloves,lighting katanas and what not. I even got one guy who hacked and made himself into an invincible douchebag with no dignity. My favorite place was sense fortress. You pretty much have to walk over a sign because it's a very linear area. I still only got an average amount of success.

    The gravelords do work (see our user cov and covenant help threads if you haven't been directed to them already) DxV04 and I and most other members of the user cov have had great success with them though it is a bit finiky.
