Company of Champion Awestones help!

#1BurnTheWindPosted 3/11/2014 11:58:12 PM
Hey,

Was wondering if anyone knew how to get the Awestones required to level up in the Company of Champions. Really need to know how to get these, I thought you would get them by beating bosses but apparently not, maybe beating them in human form?

Also, I can't place my summon sign down and I was wondering if it's because I'm part of that covenant.

Thanks for the help!

That Covenant is the "Hard Mode" covenant which disables summoning and increases invasions. You get the Awesomes as random drops from enemies at a very low chance.

^^^Post #10 details a confirmation of an enemy that drops awestones.

Use Transvestite curses or the Ghost blades to damage them. Ahriman

Thank you so much!

I knew about the increased difficulty, it's impossible to miss haha! 3 bosses down so far but it's been rough to say the least!

Do you know when it starts being possible to get invaded? Still haven't seen it happen and In the Lost Bastille now.

So is the game game essentially running on NG+ difficulty or is it some weird middle ground?

Seems you "can" be invaded but the chances are painfully small in The Champions covenant(most people say they get one every 8 hours or so of play but I've done like 40 without a invasions.)

If you do get invaded killing the invader also drops a Awestone.

Oh wow! I want to get invaded then!

You get awestones from AI invaders. One comes before the rat king and one comes before garg boss .

I've heard it's about New Game +3 or so in terms of difficulty. Too scary for me, thanks.

heard its only x1.5
but then again, you wont notice anything if you join it before you even fight anything...like me
and I advise you not to start as Deprived, 2H fisty cuffing in the forest of giants for a good bit really really is lengthy.

Seems like it just increases Damage and Hp of enemies from my testing in and out same A.I. so I'd say the difficulty is just 1.1x to me the no summons is the bigger limit if your not getting hit you could hardly tell your in it.
