Do I must join a covenant to finish the game ?

Postby blaaaa » Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:57 am

Hello everybody.

This is my first time on this forum. I play the offline version of the game, and I understand that the covenants are mainly for the online game, but I'm not sure how not joining a covenant may effect my game.
or if I can even do the covenant quests offline.

Does the covenants have any effect on the main story line ?(not that I feel there is one, all I do is die and kill. In that order)

please be careful with spoilers.

Thanks in advance.

You don't have to join a cov but you can get most if not all cov rewards playing offline.
The truth is what is, and what should be is a fantasy. A terrible, terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago.

Covenants are entirely optional, but they do give neat stuff. It's easier to rank up in covenants online using their individual multiplayer functions, but it is not impossible to do so offline. In some cases it may be much harder, though.

No not really, there's really no incentive to join one offline unless you want the trophies or something specific from that covenant, like the rewards for ranking up. You will find offline friendly npcs on your journey as long as your human to assist you though. ;)

Chaos Servant opens up the lost izalith shortcut that has multiple benefits. Other than that I can't think of any.
