Brotherhood of Blood is a PvP covenant in Dark Souls 2. It is a dueling covenant that is focused around 3 dedicated arena venues.

Covenant Leader : Titchy Gren
Location : Undead Purgatory

How to Join Brotherhood of Blood

The covenant leader, Titchy Gren, can be spoken to in a small area found after the Executioner's Chariot boss fight. The player must have a Token of Spite in their possession before speaking to the covenant leader in order to join.

 

Dueling:

Upon joining the covenant, players can queue for duels at the three statues near Gren. Again, a Token of Spite must be present in the inventory in order to duel. The token will not be expended; it need only be present.
When facing the statues, the three arenas are as follows:

  • Left statue: A relatively long bridge that connects one side to another. Falling off the bridge will result in death.
  • Middle statue: A labyrinthine arena with two levels. There are stairs in the four corners of the arena which lead to the second level.
  • Right statue: A large circular stage with wooden scaffolding in the center. There are steps that lead to the top of the structure.


Note: If no one is currently available at a chosen arena, the player will be paired with a duelist in either of the other two arenas.

 

Rank

To improve rank for this covenant the player must achieve victory in the dueling arenas or vanquish blue phantoms summoned by members of the Way of Blue  during an invasion.
Being defeated in a duel will result in the loss of one rank point. However, according to Namco Bandai customer support, it is not possible to lose rank by failing an invasion.

  • When invading, defeat the Blue Sentinel summoned as help,
    and the devotion to the covenant will go up +2. (Added with Patch 1.10)
  • You do NOT gain rank from successful invasions.
Rank Requirement Reward
0 1 Token of Spite Crest of Blood
1 50 rank points Curved Twinblade ; aesthetic red aura as a dark spirit
2 150 rank points Crescent Sickle ; aesthetic neon red glow as a dark spirit
3 500 rank points Great Chaos Fireball, Gren Set

 

Notes

  • Using the 'Talk' option with Titchy Gren, after reaching rank 3 in the covenant, will cause him to give you his scythe and armor set.
  • If both players have full health when the duel timer ends in the arena, the duel ends in a draw, and the message "STALEMATE" will appear.
  • It is recommended that player record their own victories and defeats in dueling arenas, because the game does not.
  • As of regulation 1.08, healing items and spell restoration items such as Amber Herb can no longer be used during a duel. Repair Powder can still be used in order to counter corrosive weapon, or for infinite casts of special attacks.
  • You still can heal by casting healing miracles such as Great Heal or the healing pyromancy Warmth, or by certain equipment like the Ring of Restoration, Loyce Shield, Crown of the Ivory King, but also upon each successful hit of Butcher's Knife.
  • While fighting in the arena, with a duel that ends in both players defeat. The victory will be given to the player who died last.
  • Unlike other pvp, covenant arenas do not pair players up according to soul memory. Players can be paired up with anyone in the same play through. [I fought the same guy two times in a row using two different characters (150SL and 200SL). So keep in mind that Soul Level doesn't mean much here.]

          My name is Mr. JOHN ALEX, I am 33 years old and I based in Canada. I want to notify the general public how I was helped by Illuminati temple in regaining back my business position after been sacked for about a year and six months. I have been in pains and trouble since when I was sacked from the company where I work called Canada Deposit Insurance corporation in Ottawa (headquarter) in Canada as an agency executive. I have been hopeless, financially down through out that year. But one day as I was browsing through the Internet I came across the post of Mr. John an Illuminati agent saying you can be famous, rich and successful in life by been a member of the great Illuminati Brotherhood, immediately I contacted him and I explained everything to him and he recommended me and he helped me by initiating me to the Great Illuminati Brotherhood and also he gave me all the guidelines and told me their place of worship. With the help of Mr. John I was able to go to the temple and there I was initiated fully as a complete Illuminati member. Surprisingly 40 hours after I was initiated, I receive a call from the company that I have been accepted back again as the agency executive of the company at first I was shocked and surprised but latter regain myself, I was told to resume work the next day by 7:00am. Starting from that day I and my family had been living a joyful and a luxurious life.

                When you're only a SL65+ on NG and you join in the arena with a person that's probably SL200+ with a Crypt Blacksword infused with Dark and his first hit does 90% of your health so you just accept death and let him finish the job

                          Is the arena still active? I only ever spent a day or two dedicated to pvp in this game and I really enjoyed it, dueling at the iron keep bridge about a year ago to get the dragon armor was one of my favourite times in souls and I feel like going back to this game to make a new build and pvp with it

                                BrotherHood of Blood? More like Brotherhood of bullshit.

                                Im always paired with SL500 Metamancers with*****ty internet on my SL150 characters.Its almost impossible to get a 60% winrate.

                                I need something to work with here, not a goddamn Havel assface shooting hexes, dealing 1/6 of my health with a straightsword, and running and healing when I get close to winning.
