I was going to summon her because I didn't have any great ranged option at the time, but when I checked under the stairs/destroyed the bush her sign wasn't there. I don't particularly need her help with 4 kings, but will her corpse still appear in Valley of the Drakes if I never got the chance to summon her?
I was not wearing the Cat Covenant Ring. Does anything else effect whether she shows or not?
Reasons for not seeing summons signs are: -You are not human -you are not online (online summons only) -you are not looking in the right place -you have already summoned the NPC phantom and crystal'd them away, or you summoned them and they died. Both require resting at a bonfire again for some reason. -you have already defeated the area boss. -you placed your own summon sign
