I really wish that they made it so that there were no NPC quests that REQUIRED you to take part in the online elements of the game. Like this quest matters quite a bit and yields some access to a good area early, giving great advantages. It forces players that might not even have access to online features to miss out. I am not sure I can remember that happening in a souls game before. Maybe in Dark Souls 1 where there was a quest that involved being able to obtain the Ring of Fog, where I think you had to invade 3 times for a covenant. However, there was an easy alternative that was able to yield you the Ring even if offline. And the quest was of very minor importance in that case.
I really hope in future updates that consider giving an alternate path to players that prefer to not engage in the online elements of this already classic masterpiece. It's fine if there are certain trophies and accomplishments that require online play to gain certain achievements, but not for basic story elements. Anyway, I hope they give this consideration or someone discovers a workaround, or both.
