      The part regarding the increase in dropped souls might simply be a case of overkill payout. I think that if you hit a certain percentage above the max HP of the target in one blow, you get like 20% more Souls.

        Someone should add on the page that the Sacred Oath like buff they grant is way stronger than the regular Sacred Oath. I had one of these guys buff me as an invader and my weapon AR went up by 20% and my absorption by 25%.

          These priests saved me when I was invading in lothric castle, healed and buffed me the second my hp got low

            These have the absolute best looking swords in the entire game. Why, just why didn't From make them dropable??
            I really wish I knew how to model swap for my offline playthrough...
