So you’re new to Dark Souls PvP and have heard of this “honor code” but don’t know much about it? Then this guide is for you!

Here is a list of some of the dos and don’ts in Dark Souls PvP:

1. Always bow before and after a fight. Proper bow is preferred.
2. Try not to do more than one backstab per fight. Backstab fishing is frowned upon.
3. Don’t use rude gestures.
4. Do not use toggle escapes, they are considered cheating.
5. Do not use hornet ring, the extra damage is unnecessary.
6. Do not dead-angle.
7. Do not stack poise when using a dexterity weapon.
8. No chain backstabs.
9. No dark magic.
10. Use your whole moveset, nobody likes boring fights!
11. Don’t turtle too much.
12. Don’t r1 spam.
13. No wrath of the gods.
14. No roll backstabs/reverse roll backstabs or barrel rolls.
15. No mask of the mother but using the ring of favor and protection is fine.
16. No backstab escapes, take your punishment like a true Sunbro!
17. No healing.
18. No stunlocking.
19. No combustion spam.
20. No excessive poise. No more than 32 poise on fastroll and nothing greater than 56 on midroll. Cosplayers and fatrollers are exempt from the poise restrictions.
21. No spears.
22. No ganking.
23. No tranquil walk of peace.
24. Red tearstone ring is allowed since it only activates when on low health, unlike the hornet ring.
25. No min maxing.
26. No gold tracer.
27. No katanas.
28. Don’t use the hollow soldier waistcloth. Using wolf ring is fine though.
29. No crystal weapons.
30. Backstabs can only be used to punish a really big mistake.
31. No ghost strikes.
32. Don’t interrupt duels.
33. No flip ring, it’s i-frame abuse.
34. No running into mobs.
35. No twinking.
36. Always wait a short moment after bowing to allow your opponent time to grass or buff.
37. No tumblebuffing.
38. No moveswapping.
39. Never punish grass, even if its midfight and you're right at their back.
40. If at least one of these rules are broken by your opponent, you are free to heal. Divine blessings are preferred.

That covers the basics. Best of luck on your journey on becoming an honorable player. Praise the sun!

lol no. If you both bow, no healing. No Ganking or interupting fights. No attacking while gesturing. Thats it for honor. The rest of that has nothing to do with honor, just bad playing and crutches.

It's also good sportsmanship to back off and let the player kill any AI enemies that aggro during your fight.

I prefer not to bow, in its place I use a warriors salute. 2-hand my sword and block briefly, 0.5-1s is sufficient.
Feeling low? Watch this.

I like that idea!

It's neat, it raises your blade to your face and looks like a salute.

This is dumb...every one knows you must bow 3 times or honor allows for the other guy to disconnect and start sending honor mail.

This was cute. :)

Excesive backstabing, healing during duels (except Miracles), ganking, attacking me while I try to deal with mobs, and hackers makes me want to shoot a Crystal Soul Spear right through your f***ing face. Everything else I can deal with though! ^w^
I've been called the Hero of Kvatch, Chosen Undead, Bearer of the Curse, Dragonborn, Courier 6, and the Arisen. But just call me Brelen.

This is silly, but was an amusing read none-the-less.
I'm the new guy with the awesome GT apparently...
