    Shortcut in Sens Fortess

    Post by Oh_the_Humanity on Tue Feb 07, 2012 11:43 pm

    After hundred + hours of gameplay I just recently found the shortcut in sens fortess that lets you skip the whole inside area. It's a huge help especially before acquiring the lordvessal.
    For those who may not know (or maybe Im the only one who overlooked this)
    The shortcut is in the upper part of sens fortress where the 2 cages are.
    You need the cage key that you use to free Logan, but once you do, one of the cages drops down next to the first bridge you cross just before the last giant swinging axe, and it brings you all the way up to the 3rd level in upper sens!

    Am I the only one who's missed this?

    I know about it from first playthrough, but its not really that helpful.. I only go to sens once and after never have to revisit it as i get lordvessel.

    suppose it's useful if you die in sens without using the bonfire in there or if you wanna leave it for some reason..

    I love this shortcut, very useful when I need to get to Andrei as I haven't decided to take out O+S yet.

    Keeping the area open to PvP while also partaking in jolly cooperation!

    This has helped me twice with helping players as a phantom helper. They usually do not know how to survive the traps within Sen's Fortress. I made a good amount of friends here, actually.

    I did not know about it and I find it very useful. Only found out about it recently.

    I had to use it only once, on my first playthrough ever. I couldn't kill S&O and I had 0 humanity so I stick in Anor Londo for nothing. I used the shortcut to go b to Andrei, upgrade some weapon, find some humanity and go back to Anor Londo. It was alot of help back then but right now it's useless when you're already familiar with the game and went through Sen's hundreds of times ;p

    the key to the cage is actually at the bottom of the tower that house's the merchant. Goto the bottom. The key is guarded by a single duel flamberge wielding snakehead. Thats the key to open the cage for the shortcut.
    And the shortcut is very useful for getting to that merchant later in the game.

    I have always known about it, but never used it. It is pretty useless for me because I go through Sens only once each play through. It is by far the place I hate the most.

    When I need green blossom I warp to the Anor firekeeper run up the stairs go to Sens boss area then to the merchant

    idk about you guys but although i knew about this shortcut and had activated it i never actually used it. I mean in early levels you may as well call it a shortcut to death ...once you land you have a serpent next to you banging you on a narrow bridge, flying axes on the other side so you can not run quickly, and a mage serpent above your head shooting lightning on you... yeah ok, i'll wait for the lordvessel, thanks!!

    And remember, you can use the Master Key to free Logan, but you need the actual "Cage Key" to open the shortcut.

    I found out about it eventually, but I at first I just thought that key was for Logan's cage, and the other one in his room.... I never thought that it would unlock a bada$$ shortcut. Anyway, I use it a LOT after I get to Anor Londo and before O&S when I wanna modify my weapons at Andrei from 5-6, and 10-11. It's VERY useful until you get the Lords Vessel. Just wish I found it earlier......

    when coming down in the cage just keep your shield up and walk backwards under the bridge and just kill that one cobra. then your good for the walk back to the bonfire. you can run past the two cobras guarding the entrance. just side step the floor trap.

    It took me around six toons to actually find out, I was just going to the Iron Golem one time and saw a sign on the ground that said, "Shortcut?" It was right in front of the cage, and I've opened it many times. I thought, "Huh?" I opened it like usually, and nothing happened. Then I accidentally rolling into it after getting out of a menu and it brought me down, what an odd shortcut.
