This is a player created guide by CyberneticHFX. The goal is to help you grinding your covenant items (for Achievements/Trophies) in your first journey, since enemies get harder in NG+. Before finishing your first game cycle, but after completing all the tasks recommended before moving onto NG+, you should follow this covenant items pve farming guide.
30 Vertebrae Shackles Guide
The objective of this guide is to boost your luck to the max to allow easier farming. You should not do this is you still need to fight bosses or such. You will revert your stats to normal once you finish farming.
- Before making the changes, take a screenshot of your build so you can revert to it later.
Important: You can completely bypass any farming difficulty if you just boost the shackles with a friend by summoning each other and allowing yourself to defeat each other.
At Rosaria's Bed Chamber (Cathedral of the Deep), reallocate your Character's Attribute Points in the way instructed. Doing this will likely break any build you have so don't expect to go PvP while you hold the luck stats.
Manually apply your attributes like this:
|Intelligence||21||Increase gradually with Faith; increase greater if you desire; increase further once Luck is at value of 99|
|Faith||21||Increase gradually with Intelligence; increase greater if you desire; increase further once Luck is at value of 99|
|Luck||x||All the remaining Attribute Points, plus future ones when Leveling up further, until value gets to 99.|
- When grinding for Items specifically, always use a Rusted Coin or a Rusted Gold Coin, in order to increase Item discovery per 50 or 100 points. Their status effect's duration is 65s.
