    That sounds awesome about the kiln.

    Recently I discovered the Firelink Shrine ambient music and the Nexus ambient music are almost the same.

    That looks like a serious bug.
    I'm going to use it in the future against gankers.

    Not a bug, much like the Forest drop to the Basin - it just seems to be a difficult jump. Perhaps similarly to the jump from rafters in AL to the fog gate.

    Anor Londo's jump is intentional, there is a divine blessing you get in that manner.

    Thia leads you to a glitched slice of land.

    I wouldn't consider it a glitched piece of land... There are many supposedly glitched pieces of land which probably the designer made just as a more secretive location - Shrug

    I don't want to make a new thread about this, but I just noticed that halberds does inconsistent damage to the four kings. When you hit the king for 300 damage, the 'boss health bar' on the bottom of the screen will only be hit for 250 (or there about).
    Anyone know what causes this? (Am I overlooking something, or is it the PC version only?)

    I've only seen it once. It was a 3 v 1 against Super Ornstein, and we backed him right up against one of the big windows in the middle of the cathedral. With his back basically square to the window, he landed that electric stab and lift/electrocute move on the other phantom. As he threw the guy back to the ground and then started to stand back up, he popped directly backwards through the window and visibly fell outside (including with my target lock dropping all the way down). The funniest part is that it took a good 5 minutes for him to finally die afterwards, and we were all just milling around aimlessly with that battle music going the whole time.

    While it's not all too recently i really wanted to share it.
    A couple of months ago, i hit my third playthrough on one of my characters, and i saw these Black Phantom mobs. I assumed it was part of the third playthrough. Later on i googled it...

    And that's how i found out about how the Gravelord Covenant works. Shrug

    I always do the Basin jump when I'm being ganked in the forest. Then I go with my stone guardian buddies and chill.

    My last discovery was the soul of unknown undead in the asylum ...
    After almost 1000 hours never knew about it...

    I'd call it a half bug -- presumably unintended, but it looked awesome and actually sorta fit with the fight since he'd backstepped his way to the window under pressure. The only thing that broke up the illusion (in addition to the window not shattering) was the death delay, but I think that was just because it took a while for him to hit the ground. I've had over 300+ S&O coop wins and this was the first time it happened so it's not easy to do for sure.

    I didn't know that earlier until I was like, "I wonder if they drop golden pine resins...hmmmmmm" backstabs small mushroom. "Huh didn't know that...oh I therfore can backstab the big ones too!"

    There's a long moving bridge in Blightown that leads to a humanity... didn't find that until my 3rd playthrough. Doesn't have much of a reward but it made me curious why they weren't used more. Freakin' lethal first few times you come across it, lol.

    That you can see the Stray Demon before he descends upon you in the Asylum. Didn't catch that until I was watching my girlfriend try and play.

    Lautrec's summon sign in the Parish and the Witches summon sign below the Butterfly.

    And, only through finding a poll of worst enemies in these forums did I discover black phantoms. I had absolutely no idea and had
    never run across one in all my time playing. I've had the Gravelord Curse many many times and thought it only made the enemies stronger or something.

    Lautrec's summon sign at the Gaping Maw Dragon and the Parish. I didn't realize he could be summoned at all.

    Black Knight Halberd does significantly more damage than the Black Knight Greataxe, despite the BKGA showing +104 more damage output.

    I haven't got the pc version. I checked some older clips as well, and it's the same on the console version. Could just be an overlooked bug, but kind of strange if it only happens when using halberds.

    If you're speaking of that homing missile-ish attack, it's not instant kill. I've taken damage from it lots of times without dying.
