The name engraved ring doesn't seem to increase summon range for me. A friend and I have played through together, but I'm consistently 2-4 tiers above him, and depending on what it's at at the moment, I have to use the small soapstone to connect to him, even when using the ring. PC SoTFS, if that matters. Did they change how it works? I don't see any mention of it anywhere.
If your friend has defeated the boss in the area then only a small white soapstone can be used to co-op with him in that area. Its not perfect but at least the small white soapstone w/ engraved ring does allow for you to continue to show him around the area for hidden secrets/items long after a boss has been defeated. Hope this helps answer your question. Cheers!
Your friend also needs the ring I found out the hard way

This entire summon range thing is simply lazy work to avoid the effort of adjusting player attributes when summoned. They could've very well re-adjust every summoned player to a similar stat range of the host, but they chose to simply restrict the range of players that can be summoned. If you want to play with others (especially now that DSII has fewer players) you aren't allowed to farm pretty much anything. 50 Loyce souls easily grant you 1-2 mil. in the process in NG. The best part is that the soul lost at death is also counted into SM. So you can't 'dispose' the souls you don't want by dying. You gonna actively wear that damn ring in order to keep yourself on track. You know what I'm actually glad that the Soul Level range thing is back is DSIII. It's also bad, but this is worse.
Well, if gaining souls is a problem, you can wear the Agape Ring. It absorbs the souls that the player should gain, and you don't increase your soul memory.
That sounds really inconvenient, though? What with vitality and adaptability being the difference between a functioning warrior and an actual tortoise
I've came from dark souls 3. I liked this game too. but in this matchmaking system I can't use arrows or any consumables cause of getting into a disadvantaged tier.. how could you made a such bull*****system fromsoft? and why didn't you fix it yet.
Fromsoft didnt make this game so dont bm.
They did, Miyazaki didn't participate.
I'm playing SOTFS on PC. My nickname is King_Havel. SL 41 (16 million souls). Please reach me out if you need to farm sunlight medals or help me getting some for myself. Cheers!
disculpa sabes en que nivel puedo jugar mas rapido pvp
Holas!! Quisiera saber si tiene alguna clase de parche online para poder disfrutar el DS2 con amigos. Gracias!!
luckily for me, I don't use any consumables to pvp, so I just put the agape ring on and I'm safe from going to high in sm. I just save a few souls in case i break any of my gear.
Teir 44 I'm level 339 44,000,000SL cwaynekush add me I've got tons of stuff to trade , can farm, pvp, dlc, bosses, it's all good hit me up
can u help me
What r u using
Can anyone help? I cant summon or get summoned by my friend we are two tiers apart using small stone and name ring for both. No effigies burned, haven't used the separation crystal and did not join the champion covenant.
mb you finished the area boss? then you can't summon other in that region
Because they are using small they can summon but if it's royal ray vanguard they can't because it is technically still majula.
The information containing in this wikia is probably not true, because I, with 3.000.000 souls could not summon a friend of mine with 3.990.000, but he could summon me, even though we are supposedly from the same tier, and were even using Name-engraved ring We've tried for a least 3h straight... But of course, the reason could be another other than the wikia being wrong about tiers
Maybe u killed the boss
Does it work the same with scholar of the first sin?
yes
