    I just can't do it!

    Post by SlakeMoth on Thu Feb 09, 2012 7:18 am

    I've checked the wiki for advice on what to do before you meet Gwyn in the kiln and go to Newgame+. One of the things they tell you to do is kill all the NPC's.

    This may seem lame but I don't think I can bring myself to do it, especially the Blacksmiths. Dear old Andrei, the gentle Giant in Anor Londo. O.K. maybe I'll waste that arrogant Vilhelm guy in New Londo ruins and Vamos because he's not exactly friendly but amongst the other NPC's, there's only Patches and the snivelling merchant in the Undead Burg (and even he's got a pet 'mop' or something) that I've really taken exception to.

    Does anyone else fell the same or am I just a wuss? (Yes, o.k., I'm just a wuss)

    I see no reason to harm any of the non-hostile PCs unless there are any that you flat out dislike. I usually tend to RP a bit in my head when I play Souls games though, so depending on my character, they may or may not kill NPCs. I only have one character on Dark Souls, who is "good", so the NPCs shall remain alive, even when I go to finish the game. So no, it's not just you. silly

    You dont have to kill anyone if you dont want to. The wiki suggests killing them so you get humanity or some unique items that they drop, like the blacksmith's hammers for example. If you 're going for the trophy you will need all weapons, if you really dont care about the trophy - like i did- let them live. Most of them drop small amounts of souls, and the humanity they drop you can get easily by farming anyway. Up to you!

    I got this same advice before finishing my first playthrough, I decided to kill the White Witch first for a firekeeper soul. I wanted to check if there was any dialogue I missed so I equipped the Witch ring and talked to her. I left her alive for what I believe is obvious reasons, I just couldn't do it. I'm too damn nice. Patches though...I obliterated him with Chaos Fire.

    Just FYI, you don't need the blacksmith hammers for the unique weapons trophy. I've never killed any of the blacksmiths. I wouldn't mind killing Vamos, but no way could I bring myself to kill Andre or the giant. I love them both. happy

    You do need the crescent axe that Patches drops, but I think you can buy it from him. I don't mind killing Patches, though. Patches, Petrus, Lautrec, sometimes Oswald--I try to let the other npcs live.

    Don't kill them if you don't want to, but what I would suggest you to do is to stole the hunanities from them using the dark hand and that eon't turn them hostile... And actually you just can do it with some npc's though.

    I have only ever killed Petrus and Shiva (& bodyguard of course) and I felt like $h!t every time. Can't imagine killing the others but I imagine I will at least have to man up & kill the firekeepers before going to ng+, which will be happening very soon.

    I'm playing as a Sephiroth cosplay. Which means I'm killing Rhea in the most fantastic and spectacular way possible.

    You know what I've just read has restored my faith in humanity and gives lie to the belief that games can turn people into wanton killers. Well played.

    Confession - I have killed Patches, The Undead Merchant, Big Hat Logan's sidekick (felt terrible,hated myself, quite rightly) Oswald of Karim and the Firekeeper in Anor Londo but only because she attacked me after I killed Dark Gwyndolen. I feel awful. No more wanton slaughter of NPC's for me.

    I always kill shiva & bodyguard, Patches, chain mail guy, Lautric, Petrus and the magic sidekick. Petrus definitely deserves it though. I spent several hours making a Dex/Faith build and he ended up killing Rhea before I bought WoG off of her. Now I'm at a distinct disadvantage in PvP.
