    Prepare to die edition - speculation on some details - SPOILERS

    Post by Alocas on Sat Aug 18, 2012 7:57 am

    Hey guys,
    I’ve been checking the
    forum for quite a while now and I’m more than hyped for the ‘prepare to die’-
    Edition.

    That’s why my first
    post will be some speculation about what I expect from the add on.

    SPOILER ALERT

    I’ve been watching
    both the gamespot and gamesradar videos where one of the Bandai/Namco guys
    explains a bit while playing pretty poorly as well as the new Gamescom-trailer.

    From the various sources, I had some ideas in mind, that I wanted to share and discuss, since I
    believe this forum is the best place to do so and the people around here know
    their stuff.

    First of all, I noted that all of the time he is playing there is one ‘buff’-symbol under the
    stamina-bar. I’m pretty sure that this is the boot-symbol for the Artorias-Ring
    that lets you traverse the abyss.

    I believe that – just like you have to wear it for the Four Kings fight – you will have to wear the ring to access the new content in the Darkroot Basin and for the Demonic Hand [that
    is believed to belong to the Darklurker (The 3rd mandatory new Boss?)]
    to drag you into the Abyss and/or the new content.
    To my mind it would be very clever if you were in the abyss the whole time and that time-travel thing is more like an ‘image’ that the abyss shows you. Furthermore it would be very
    smart to let us wear the Artorias-Ring the whole time so that we are forced to
    only use one buff-ring. This would make the already seemingly difficult new content
    a lot harder (Which is basically what we all want, isn’t it?).

    The other thing that I spotted was the magic that some of the new enemies will use. It really seems like they shoot Humanities at the player and that they use the Beatrice’s-catalyst
    for that. In one of the pictures that were posted (by Baal, I believe) the
    contrast of the image was raised and by that we could get a better look at the
    Darklurker-demon. I think that he holds such catalyst in his right hand (the
    one that doesn’t drag you in the darkness). If that was true, he could be
    something like the humanity-keeper, if you will, that reigns over all the lost
    humans. In that regard, it is quite possible that the abyss is the place where
    all of the lost humans (Humanity) are sent to after they have turned hollow or
    undead (Which is basically backed up by the picture with the humanity sprites
    that are hovering in the darkness).
    In one of the videos (I believe it was the new trailer) it is also mentioned that Oolacile has
    brought the Abyss upon itself. This probably means that Beatrice or somebody
    else tried to create some kind of dark magic by using humanity or sacrificing
    humans.

    There are also some things
    that I am really unsure of.

    It seems like in the
    Artorias Boss fight, he has a VERY similar moveset as Sif the great grey wolf.
    And if you watch the new youtube-video by EpicNameBro, there is a link to an
    image that shows Sif, surrounded by some humanity sprites in some kind of rite.
    Does that mean that Artorias gets turned into Sif or is reborn as Sif?

    Oh and in the gamesradar-video the narrator receives the soul of Artorias… What the heck is
    that used for? We can already get both swords and the shield? Cursed
    Greatshield of Artorias maybe?

    He also says that you
    have to find the armor-set of Artorias. I personally believe that you will find
    it in the lair of the Darklurker…

    Tell me what you think
    about all of this guys. I love to speculate and discuss.

    I really think Dark Souls is a masterpiece for that.

    Is it confirmed that Gough is blind? Or is it just speculation, because I was thinking this too.

    Namco Guy from Gamesradar video says that the forth boss was not revealed yet, the others 3 are the black dragon, the santuary guardian and Arthorias, so we can conclude that the Dark Lurker is not a boss, i think he is a lore explainer or a new covenant chief.

    Yeah I'm kinda in this mindset too. Why would they post a picture of last boss, if it's such a huge secret?

    So could it be that the Darklurker said 'Oolicile has brought the Abyss upon itself'? I think he's the first boss of the DLC. Because it's obvious that it's his had that drags you in to the past and then fights you.

    I highly doubt it, the voice isn't fitting or dark enough. The first boss of the DLC is the Sanctuary guardian and it has been confirmed to be immediately after you enter the DLC content. The creature is going to have a big role in the DLC but I doubt it's the last boss...and I actually hope it's not because I was hoping to see some iconic Dark Souls lore character to make appearance as the last boss.

    This is still unclear. Some guy who previewed the game said that you can form a covenant with Elizabeth, but I've seen lot of footage of Elizabeth dialogues and I haven't seen the option to do so (only the option to choose if you help to rescue Dusk or not).
