        So, can I get the spear if i'm not +1 or do I have to join again and raise my rank to +1 ? Becauae I need to leave it for a bit and I want to know if I will have to co-op again to get the spear later ?

          Anybody know why I can't offer Gwyn's soul to the altar even though I'm in ng+? I'm Warrior of Sunlight +1 and have a few souls of Gwyn but I wonder if that's why. I got multiple souls before I entered ng+ because I helped a friend out.

            1. 10 sunlight medals needed to obtain rank 1 for sunlight spear

            2. Soul of Gwyn required for sunlight spear

            3. Only one is obtainable per playthrough.

            How is this hard I wrote this in 2mins without contradicting myself yet this guy can't seem to pull that off.

              What does that mean "you dont have to be +1" but then it states "soul + 10 medals"? Thats contradicting itself
