So first I was stuck at the last giant and first I grinded in the forest by the Bonfire but I discovered that the enemies in the Tower werent actualy that hard to kill so I started farming them instead. Suddenly however they stopped spawning Im on the Pursuer now and sure its nice to not have to face any enemies on my way to fight him but Im curious will all enemies stop respawning after a while?

If memory serves (was like 2 years ago) enemy's spawn 12 times (obviously some only spawn once, & I think a couple spawn less than 12 times) in total, after that you'll need to use a bonfire ascetic to respawn them (they'll be NG+ difficulty if you use an ascetic on NG), though using ascetics to respawn standard enemy's isn't recommended, use the ascetics for certain bosses that drop extra stuff on NG+ difficulty & above.

Yes, all but a very few enemies stop respawning after a while. The exact number varies, but it's somewhere in the 7-15 range. Assume you have opened the shortcut to the Pursuer? I just started a new game after finally (almost) finishing, and I'm at the same spot, so if you have any other questions, just let me know.

As the people before me said, the enemies do have a limited spawn capability; however, joining the Company of Champions covenant gives them unlimited spawns, but at the price of increased health and damage dealt to you.

Don't do that. Like Doc said, just join the Champion's Covenant. It'll make almost all enemies respawn endlessly (except intended one-time spawns). They'll be a little bit stronger stat-wise but mostly the same and you can kill them until your heart's content.

Then just leave the Covenant via the cat vender in Majula (there's no penalty for leaving) and it'll revert back to before with them all despawned.

Ah, forgot about leaving the covenant. Can you re-join?

Ah, but sadly vanilla doesn't have that farming perk.

Wow. A lot of conflicting info out there on CoC. I'm strictly PVE so don't care about a lot of it. Since you can go straight from the start to Majula, I may roll a new character and play around with it before I try it with my active character. Easy enough to test on the hollows in Betwixt

It does after the patch they did ages ago when Scholar first came out.
