it gets stronger the more levels you have from the covanant, and you also get the dragon body stone on the second level, and 3rd level is max but takes 80 in total dragon scales.

It doesn't really tell you anything. It's like here are the controls, ring some bells, good luck. And for the next 50+ hours you get your skull caved in.

It also has solid gameplay and an amazing community, it also has an incredibly well made PvP system in which you could be naked, with a small sword against someone fully geared, and if you're good enough you can still come out on top.

you'll reach a part where a big-ass red dragon swoops down and sits his jolly ass over an archway across a bridge. you progress by going under him, but if you edge yourself to where you can see his dangling tail from under the bridge, and shoot it with a bow (start with one as a ranger, or buy one in the area near the bridge otherwise) it'll eventually fall off (the tail, that is). it takes about 20 to 40 arrows, depending on your strength. once the tail falls off, you get the Drake Sword.

when you push left trigger or L2 you do a move with your shield that if timed right will throw the enemy off guard and then you can do a follow up move which dose massive damage.
