    Solaire w/o killing 9 bugs?

    Post by PhlyingDutchman on Thu Feb 09, 2012 10:01 pm

    Add another strange way to get Solaire alive in Lost Izalith...

    I'm on NG+ and was determined to save Solaire.
    I joined the chaos servant covenant without an egghead, but with the old witches ring (I traded my sunlight maggot from NG with snuggly early on in NG+). I offered 30 humanity and got level 2. I killed the Demon Firesage, opened the shortcut to lost Izalith, and found 8 chaos bugs. I killed them, but got no sunlight maggot. Figuring I must have missed one, I homeward boned back to daughter of chaos, and then took the elevator back. Two more times, and I'm convinced that there was no 9th bug to kill. I didn't cross into Lost Izalith. So I went and killed the Centipede Demon. With him dead, I ran back to the shortcut (still hadn't seen the words Lost Izalith, nor approached the Lost Izaltih bonfire). Again, 8 bugs.

    I killed them aggressively without crossing the border into Lost Izalith again. Now maybe I was just running quickly after them and didn't notice him at first, but after killing all 8, there was Solaire, sitting in the tunnel, human, saying the normal "was it worth it?" speech. I didn't have to leave the area and come back for him to appear, so I'm guessing I must have run right past him. Cool, I've saved him, but now I need a sunlight maggot.

    I went into Lost Izalith via the centipede room, all the way until I got the area change text. He wasn't near that bonfire, and when I went back to the shortcut, there he was, sitting among the 8 hopping bugs. Killed them again, still no maggot. The dang 9th bug won't show up!

    Am I screwed? Does the 9th bug not show up if you enter NG+ with a sunlight maggot in your possession? Did I have to trade it in NG? Anyway, Solaire is alive but I'm dreading Tomb of the Giants without my trusty headlamp.

    Any advice on how to get the 9th bug to show up would be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think you can get the sunlight maggot without killing him....

    There are total of 9 insects on both sides of the shortcut door, the one with the red eyes will drop it.
    It can only be received once each play-through, since the ninth bug will not respawn.

    Hey Phlyingd,

    First off gz on actually pulling that off i felt bad have to kill off solaire a second time in ng+ since i didnt need anything off him ill be sure to try what you managed with my other characters. Very cool if it works seiously happy.

    Ok for your sunlight maggot helm, if im not mistaken use the covetous serpeant rng and one of the bugs should eventually drop it. If they dont and you dont want to tear through the TOG all ghetto with a trusty skull lantern then get the spell cast light or whatever its called a few uses should have you cruising in the tomb =).

    Hope this helped thank you for the solaire save, very cool m8 silly

    Yeah I remember the red eyed one from NG, but he's definitely not there now. I hope he didn't fall of the edge- but maybe there's an item sitting down in the lava... that'll be fun to retrieve...
