  3. Killing NPCs! Worth it?
4 years ago#1
Since I am easily gonna play through DkS over 5 times, in DS, in one of my repeats of the story (NG++) I killed every NPC possible just to get their unique items they drop and other things. Is it worth doing that for one play through in DkS? (Not killing literally everyone but killing covenant leaders, etc).


I want to get this task over with in my first completion.

if you have Dark hand some of them give humanity so no reason NOT too unless you have weird morals that cause issues when you kill fantasy characters.

Yes, there's no reason to let them live if you're planning on immediately going to NG+

Alright, so by the end of my run. Before the final boss, I might as well just kill them all. But what's the point of having dark hand, can you expand on that?

The Dark Hand, the entry item for the Darkwraith covenant, is capable of stealing Humanity from human enemies and players when equipped in a right-hand slot. Though it makes for a cool shield, statwise it's not great, so it's humanity-stealing ability is all that it's really good for.

Dark hand(from darkwraith covenant) has an R2 Grab that steals humanity so you can use it ON an NPC and if they have any humanity you get it and then they sometimes drop MORE! Rhea for instance will give you humanity (only used grab once so idk if you can get more then 1) and then drop 7! the 2 respawning guards if you kill Gwynevere also have 3 humanity to Dark hand away each

And how do I get to Darkwraith?. I currently have the vessel and I am currently trying to defeat 4 Kings.

Doesn't killing NPCs give you a lot of sin and Darkmoon players will invade you? Sin carries over into NG+ right?

You haven't talked to or given it to Frampt then?

Kill the four kings and Frampt's brother will show up. Give it to him and join the Darkwraith covenant from there.
