So, I heard/read about two summon signs in front of Vordt of the Boreal Valley. I already killed the boss, but, how do they appear? I´m very confused with how to summon or find Lion Knight Albert and Master Sword. I read all you need to do is kill the dude with the katana that is just left to Firelink Shrine – I did that – but neither of them were there. Am I missing something? I don't care to fight with the boss, I just want to know what I did wrong since I´m a completionist.
Sword Master's sign will be right outside of Vordt's boss room after he's been defeated at Firelink Shrine until Vordt is defeated.
Lion Knight Albert's sign will be further up, available until Vordt is defeated.
Neither will be available for summon after Vordt has been defeated (until the next NG+).
Keep in mind you must be in Enkindled mode (ember restored) in order summon help to your world.
