So, how many of you guys joined the dragon covenant? After reading about the item you get for joining, I just couldn't resist. And, after a LONG and extremely painstaking trip through the Great Hollow and Ash Lake, I can now turn my head into a dragon's head and breathe fire. Hell yes. It doesn't do a ton of damage, but it is cool as hell. Anybody else made this long journey and joined up??

Assuming you have the master key, at the start. Just go down the elevator from firelink shrine, head right through the valley of drakes, down to the bottom of blighttown, left up the tree root ramp (with hidden walls) to great hollow and finally make a mad dash down the beach at ash lake. Did this on a new cleric with few issues. It's possible (likely) you will end up getting cursed on this route, so you may wish to at least wait until you open up the elevator from the cathedral so you can get the red orb shards to trade for the curse cure or until after ringing the bell so you can just flat out buy one.
*important note, if you're going to try it right away, do a few suicide runs in the valley of drakes to grab the gear before heading into blight town. You pick up a fire resistant and poison resistant shield plus some decent gear which help quite a bit.
*Important note #2, don't try and fight through, run and dodge everything. All the critters reset when you get to the bonfires.
