      Although I suspect noone will believe I want to share the weird bug that happened to me. I got a second soul of pontif after I defeated him in the very same NG cycle. I wanted to hunt some shackles in the area and invaded as a mad phantom. On one such occasion I was spawned in the VERY moment the host entered the fog. My char was not even loaded only the swirl on the ground. It was also the spawn behind the altar where you find the Ring of the Suns Firstborn. It just showed on screen that the host entered a critical battle and that I'm send back and right below that the message and picture when you get pontif soul. I just thought this a message bug but back in my world i checked the inventory and there it was. Transposission worked also and now I have both swords on a lv 50 character. Has anyone ever experienced such a bug?

        I find it interesting that Pontiff's soul shares the same sprite as Wolnir's. Not really surprising, considering how similar they are as gruesome tyrants, but interesting nonetheless

          Profaned Greatsword is definitely better for PvP, and there seem to be more enemies throughout the game that are weak to fire than there are enemies weak to magic, but for those select few that DON'T like magic, the Disco Sword of Judgement is incredibly powerful. Compared to the Moonlight GS, GSoJ's attack is more focused on physical damage, though with a significant magic attack output that reaches close to the same output as Moonlight GS when buffed, giving it a slightly higher AR with the same lightwave attack, though it's reduced to a weapon skill and not a strong attack.

            Just got put of the fight. Had anri and pale shade (i think that's the name, he had the spiky sword) anyway barely had to do anything. Went in with 3 sunnyD and 1 blueberry and still had 1 of each left at the end of the fight

              Alrich devoured gywndolin that is why he has his appearance and moves. Also notice Aldrich theme has parts from gwyndolins theme back in dark souls. He could have devoured into aswell seeing as how there parts from his theme as well. Also Aldrich is weilding a halberd quite similar to nitos

                Aldrich and The Nameless King have Similarities to Gwyndolin and Gwyn, Aldrich has similar voice acting to Gwyndolin's and look slightly identical and The Nameless King has a VERY i repeat VERY similar appearance to Gwyn the such as his crown, armor, and well it just kinda spells out Gwyn to me all in all!
