I have been going through some of these in preparation for Elden Ring, clearing up final achievements. |
DS3 is done, farming for covenant items is not that bad when you put luck to 99 and get all the gear and coins going.
DS2 is a bit of a shitter though, as the items don't drop. Luckily, there seem to be a lot of players still active.
Going to need to do blue and sunbro covenants to max level to get spells.
Going to roll a cheap ass pyromancer with a rapier. Thrust weapons are so broken in this game for PvE

@Akumer you can max covenant items offline. Sun medals drop from the falconers in shaded woods. Not a bad drop rate.
Oh ok, I was reading a wiki last night and it didn't seem like they were item drops. That's good news.
Though I might try to get the majority by helping people on bosses, just because it's more fun.
Whats a good SL and boss to farm? I haven't played this in a good while.

Might start this next actually. Done nioh, b.b., sekiro in a row and currently early on in DS3. I wish eldin ring would hurry along, I want that new "omg where the hell is the next bonfire" feeling again.
@Akumer honestly not sure. Worth soul memory etc i never knew where i was with online. I did my platting all offline though so it's totally possible. You can farm the mad warrior to level up bell bros for example. Takes a while but i honestly thought the ds3 farming was worse.
Well that's good news then. It only took me about 2 hours to farm all the DS3 ones. Must be quicker because no luck stat?
@Akumer Lucky bastard! Ha ha I'm not going to tell you how long it took me to farm Silver Knights in AL. 3 days. 4?
DS2 will take longer than 2 hours but I think the worst one is the mad warrior farming as he doesn't always spawn.
@wuntyate Yeah the silvers were probably the worst. I had a few from being summoned and the one or two you find in the world, so 2 hours was probably for 20 of them.
99 luck and all possible boosts from gear and items.
I also reloaded the game whenever I got one, as someone online said it resets something. Seemed to do the trick.
Never doing it again!
@Akumer Likewise. It was horrible.
I don't remember having to farm anything in dark souls 1. That's really easy to platinum. I think you can do it on one character in a couple of NG+ cycles.
Plus you can get to anor londo in an hour once you're over levelled.
@Akumer Yeah DS1 and BB have been the most enjoyable. Then some distance down DS2, then a MASSIVE distance below that, DS3. Especially all those fucking rings.
The rings one was bullshit. Having to go through NG+ to get the plus versions was daft.
And the wolf ring from the covenant.
Covenant achievements can just fuck off.
