    Discoveries you only made recently.

    Post by Rynn on Fri Sep 28, 2012 12:40 pm

    From the awesome, to the lame, just things you only recently noticed. I have 2.

    1: If i start to invade a world, and then kill an enemy/get souls from killing an enemy, i'll only receive 50% of my earned souls: as the game has already changed my earning rate to that of a phantom... so the time where it's going "invading another world" prior to the loading screen is actually a conversion time where the game is changing the relvant soul calculations, death penalty, etc...

    2: Holy Mackeral the Cresent Axe has an obscene range, why don't i ever see this beast in PvP?

    But the biggest revelation for me of late has to be... You'll enjoy the game a heck of a lot more if you do not set any limitations on your characters development, but simply allow him/her to evolve naturally as the game progresses. twisted

    Truthfully, up until maybe two months ago, I didn't know that you could get Big Hat Logan's armor. I didn't know about the chest spawning back where he was in the library after you killed him up where you first fight Seath.

    Here's another one that I recently discovered... a +5 Lightning Balder Side Sword is not the be-all and end-all of all weapons! :roll:

    Yesterday I found out that you can get an arrow sticking out of your hand. But it vanishes after a loading screen.

    Here's another useful tip, not so much a recent discovery, but when I worked it out for myself I was like...

    When in the Crystal Caves use cheap arrows or bolts, and not Prism Stones, to map out the safe routes across the invisible paths, as they are a heck of a lot easier to place.

    However, there is one problem when using arrows. It's the trip back after getting the slab. If you use prism stones, you'll already have a visible path. But if you use arrows, you'll have to map the path again with the arrows.

    I always, always homeward bone after getting the slab. That thing is too dangerous to navigate. Far easier to just retrace my steps.

    Same as, it may be way more expensive than mapping out your route all over again, but it is still by far and away the more safer option. twisted

    The last discovery I made a few days ago is that poison arrows won't inflict poison if your stats are below the requirements to wield the bow.

    How can you say it's expensive at 500 souls, when you're an advocate of the Lightning Avelyn at 2100 souls per trigger?

    Last week I made two discoveries in the Undead Parish:

    *If you go from the Burg to the first Parish bonfire and then go to the place where the Sunlight Altar is, you can actually see the Hellkite Drake flying away. It's such an awesome little detail.

    *At the place where the armored boar is, if you can get to the portcullis before the Hollow closes it, you can close it yourself and it will instakill any enemy the gate crushes. Would be awesome to kill the boar this way...

    I am notorious for being one of the last people to discover the Great Hollow or the fact that there was a whole section of Darkroot hidden behind a killable tree, so bear that in mind with these:

    -- You can do a coded drop attack onto the giant rat above the waterfall in the Depths (i.e. one of those ones where it looks like you're riding it before you jump off)

    -- souls spears/CSS (and maybe others) do a ton more damage if you hit someone square in the back

    -- It is possible to get Super Ornstein to commit suicide by jumping out of one of the big sunlit windows in the cathedral if he does his electric impale and lift attack right up against the side of the window and then clips through it on the recovery animation

    I can choose which direction I spawn facing when I invade by holding the appropriate direction on the joystick.

    I can often hit people with a jumping attack after a roar (really helpful with UG weapons).
    And if i roar before i shot with a bow, the arrow will do more damage.

    And for some reason, the dragon roar seems to be harder to roll through than WoG/force. I haven't tested this, but people rarely roll BS me (even though they can roll BS WoG).

    Not a recent discovery... But you can drop for the Forest into the Basin when being ganked 1v3 - this will stop the gankers being invaded for good. Also in the Kiln you can run to gwyns fog gate when being ganked, instead of turning left for his gate you sprint straight on and go around the giant block, you end up if you do a jump in what I like to call the batcave. Props to marcus - you can once down there snipe them with a DSB and once they come down there you can cast WoG/Force/Dragon Shout through the floor and destroy them. It also will stop anyone else invading them and ruin their 1v3 ganking action. I sometimes go here and just leave the PS3 on and end up spending more time with Nat or making dinner/tea etc;
