Anyone know what the helm/gauntlets in the vid are? I haven't seen them yet in my playthrough.

Does anyone know how invasions work in the Remaster? Do invaders get buffs if the host has phantoms or are we just getting invaded by NG+ people or something? Everyone that invaded us in Sen's had more then my 1500 health and dealt out more damage then my quality build friend and had several high level spells attuned. In other words every invader we had was a master of all trades it seemed.

Helmet is called Morne's helm. I don't know about the gauntlets.

It should work the same way it does in Dark Souls 1 with the exception of Weapon Level matchmaking being added.

in DS3 i've just finished going through farron keep, which was probably my lest favorite part in the game because of how often you were forced to move at a snail's pace. i last stopped at the catacombs, which isn't as bad but i've still got quite a way to go. once i get it i'm going to play through the rest of the game with the demon fist and fist my way to victory.

Must be just people that optimized entirely for PVP then and some bad luck then. To put in perspective I got invaded by a fully kitted out Giant Dad in the depths of all places.

Did they fix the Gravelord Covenant or is it still NG+ only for some reason?
The Black Phantoms from the gravelord covenant still only appear only on NG+. Their weird choices for covenants are still there, the only real change is that you can turn in multiple covenant offerings at once (which is a good thing at least). I understand why but it's still kind of upsetting because Dark Souls 1 had some of the most baffling decisions when it comes to the covenants. Like Princess Guard which doesn't even have leveling up in it or actual rewards for joining it, it just enables you to find two miracles you find elsewhere in the game. But they needed to make it a Covenant for some reason. And of course the good miracles that you'd want to go FTH for (Sunlight Spear, Darkmoon blade) are covenant-locked i.e you can't switch from the covenant the miracle belongs to or you can't use it.

If you've got a weapon with a Quickstep weapon art(like a dagger), you can spam that and move through the bog at a reasonable speed. Should work even if you don't have FP I think but you just don't get any invulnerability frames on the quickstep.

While not strictly "Souls", there was a new 2-minute trailer on Sekiro, the upcoming action game by FromSoft at the Tokyo Game Show :
https://twitter.com/sekirothegame/status/1039136410941485057 (japanese with english subtitles) . The trailer does show footage of 3 bosses, two of them new to this trailer so if you want to go into the game completely blind, then it may not be for you even though they don't show a whole lot.

I know this is super late, but the gauntlets look like the Sellsword Gauntlets, starting gear of the Mercenary class, otherwise found between Road of Sacrifices and Farron Keep, in the area with the Black Knight and the Farron Coal. Near the entrances, you should see a set of stairs leading to a ledge above the Black Knight, where the item should be, if not under it.

This is probably old news by now, but the idea of ceremonies being tied to invasions seems like it'd have been closer to Bloodborne's invasion system, if a bit more convoluted in terms of execution, when compared to how Bloodborne was a simple as summoning an allied player to open oneself to invasion.

Makes me wonder if certain locations would've been in an Eclipse State, as Bloodborne had the Nightmare Frontier & Nightmare of Mensis, where Chime Maidens that could summon invaders were spawned by default.

So I'm playing the dark souls remaster basically for the first time (I've gotten past the Bell Gargoyles on PC but then my Ds4 program goes all fucky and I can't control the camera anymore) as a knight, and I swear I read somewhere in the depths of the thread suggesting leveling VIT & END to 20 and then start working on the other attributes.

Is this a good plan for the knight? At SL 19 and just got to the Andre bonfire.

VIT and END are always good stats to invest in IF you don't know what to invest in. If you want to use the Zweihander or whatever then STR would be a good stat to invest in as well.

Just for gods sake don't invest anything into Resistance and you're fine. Getting Havel's ring as early as you can helps too.

Yeah, so I'm pretty sure the Taurus Demon glitched in my playthrough. He didn't wait until I got into the arena, he's standing right at the door with those FUCKING DOGS. As soon as I clear the fog he stun locks and then flattens me.

I'm glad you don't actually have to beat every boss, but it's kind of disappointing because I was looking forward to the fight I'd heard so much complaining about.

Nope, that's just his boss fight. He does that to EVERYBODY. Its why nobody likes his boss fight.
