    It would be more appropriate to be called kill face, as you kill anything without discretion.

    When I was a grave lord I got some serious pvp action even more so when I combined it with the dried finger which speeds up invasions. Also when your GL-ing you can’t summon any backup so it keeps people honest but I would have like crazy 3 v1's its epic. If I had a capture card I could put most YouTube videos shame.

    was invaded 21 times in 20 minutes and was killing them as quickly as they came.

    10 of those times were by the same 2 people I guess that when they die the sign doesn’t disappear or it might have something to do with the dried finger.

    Another thing I noticed was that the ones that invaded via the GL sign were lower leveled than me.

    SL 66
    VIT 24
    END 38
    STR 24
    DEX 13
    FAITH 12
    INT 10
    RES - BASE

    Im guessing some of those numbers because im at work now where I have access to the forums. I am currently using GL sword +5 Dragoncrest Shield and Full Wander's Set except I have thief's hood on. RoFaP and havels becasue otherwise im not in the 25%. I need one more endurance to be under 25%.

    Reunify hollow shirt, hood, as well as wanderer gloves and trousers. Will look better than wanderer with just hollow hood as well. Not a good match between grey/green and brown.

    For a good Gravelord Armour, if you have a skinny female character, try this:

    Crimson gloves
    Holy pants
    Priest hat
    Hard leather shirt

    Will look good with your Gravelord smoke. Trying another curved Greatsword such as server or the giant skeleton's weapons will help as well.

    If you use the miracles, try to give as much eyes to Nito (80 being good) and use it when surrounded by enemies from around. The swords overlap and spread randomly, so be warned.

    If go for other curved Greatswords, try weapons such as flame or divine. Will be good for ya.

    Trying to help a fellow Gravelord. Only Gravelord areas if you see white signs as well, otherwise you may get possibly none infected.

    ther are only 3 curved great swords:

    the GL sword

    the Server which requires 24 str and 13 dex and scales at C in dex and...

    the Murakumo which require 28 str and gets B/A dex scaling depending on how upgraded it is,

    the benefits of each besides scaling are as follows:

    GL is the only weapon in the game that can inflict toxic (one club can do poison but not toxic.)

    the server restores the wielders health by 7 hp per hit (whether you hit their shield or actually hit them it heals you.)

    the murakumo has the best scaling and higher base damage than the server.

    Also the server and murakumo have an identuical moveset while the GL has a unique thrust r2...

    i really like these weapons and wish there were more.

    So a Murakumo/Server with fire or Lightning would be a better weapon than the GL+5?

    For a flame server plus 10, I think it is 299/299 in both physical and flame. However I think If it is not, the flame portion does more than 299.

    As for lightning, stick with fire on server; it fits it well.

    As for the other curved Greatsword, looking in the wiki can help.

    Put on evil eye, and NG+ and up it will be your lifesaver.

    If you aim for +15, then yes aim for it. However it would be better four you to make the server faith/elemental than physical due to scaling.

    If aim for +15, the Mukarurou will be your best friend, however does not have specials like Gravelord and server. +15 will work on both weapons, but the muka would be better at it.

    Does Gravelord Greatsword Dance Benefit from higher Faith stat? I am building toward Pyromancy but I am wonderign if I should go more faith since Sword Dance is a pain when I need to switch my glove to a talisman every time.

    depends on your talisman, the spell itself is strengthened by the magic adjust of the talsiman which in turn is USUALLY increased by faith, however there is a talisman that scales with inteligence that can also be very powerful.

    WyrmHero also pointed out that the gravelord miracles scale with the gravelord covenant rank. The gravelord miracles can also be effectively cast by an int build with a Velkas Talisman, since they have no faith requirements.

    If you are doing a +15 Murakumo build (28str/40dex), there will not be enough points left over for Faith, for a viable pvp build. This build will also get the most out of the Gravelord Sword. If you add faith, then make elemental weapons instead (chaos, fire, lightning), but only raise str/dex to 28/13 (24/13 for the Server). With a faith build you can also make divine/occult versions of the weapons.
    Murakumos can be farmed to create several upgraded versions, but you only get one Server each playthrough so be sure to make the right upgrade choice for that.

    Not at the cap limit that proletariat set for themselves, no. As a Gravelord, your job is to infect as much people as can. As they limit themselves, so should you.

    Not with high Faith as well, since most of your available points goes towards str/dex, but you can do 10 Faith and the Torolund Talisman. The gravelord miracles are not the best choice for pvp either, but they kind of belong to a gravelord build. I'm assuming level 120 for the +15 Murakumo, a lower level build should benefit more from elemental weapons.
