    Something that might be very obvious but I discovered until very recently: you don't have to carry your ore around, you can use it to upgrade weapons and armor even when it's stashed in your Bottomless Box.

    So I start my umpteenth character last night.

    2,000+ hours of Dark Souls.

    I always fine-tune the facial features with the character creator but have never been too impressed with how few options it has.

    I hit the d-pad on accident and... HOLY **** THERE'S A 2ND PAGE TO THE CHARACTER MODIFICATION OPTIONS????? All this time, all the characters, and I had no idea most of the options (nose, mouth, jaw, whatever) have a 2nd page.

    I can one-up you. I only discovered the Character Modification Options last month. I never saw the customize button.

    I recently noticed that the axe's jumping attack stagger. I thought that that they didn't have it, since the halberd's jumping attacks don't stagger. This is not important in any way whatsoever

    I totally forgot about one of my biggest /facepalm moments recently. I kept seeing you all talk about the BB glitch but I didn't know what it was so I read up on it. Until then I had no idea you could have more than 4 characters. I'd never scrolled down to see that there are more character slots. I've deleted many a character cuz I thought I was limited to 4.

    LOL/cry

    I also didn't know about using ore from your Bottomless Box or the 2nd page of customization options...

    That some equipment offers bonus stats. Found out last week i believe it was, when someone on these forums posted a build with Crown of Dusk.

    You mean Gwyndolin right? Cause if you mean Gwynevere you have to share it!

    Kill gwynevere and bugger off out the room before she actually dies. The cutscene won't play until you go back in and stand in front of the giant couch.

    This is totally pointless but it's a new discovery, none the less silly

    LOL, thanks.

    +1? Not sure I understand about that... *goes searching through the forums

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Another one... I didn't know up until I was researching creating a SunBro character about a month ago that Estus flasks heal your summoned allies. I hadn't summoned many people up until that point, but man... to those few who attempted helping me when I didn't know I could heal you, THANK YOU!!! ..and I'm sorry...

    I've only tried this once,. I cast the miracle and the extra messages showed almost the entire turn in the invisible path. I just merrily walked to the the blue slab. cheers

    Apparently this does not always work. I just tried it a second time and only two messages appeared.

    I want you to write more messages.

    Also, dragoniods look like nude humans when you touch their sign.

    I learned that the Avelin existed :I and then lost 70 humanity in a quest to have it lmfao

    also learned you dont have to be in the dragon cov to use the chest stone lol

    also ALSO!!! learned that you couldn't see the status bars of the people ur inflicting a status on (>_<) I ignored the gravelord sword for too long cause of this (mental thought at the time: damn broke sword full of lies...)

    super also: learned that you dont have to kill Gwynivere to fight Gwyndilin >_<

    more also: you can zoom in with bows

    also for justice: you can kill the basin Hydra without removing every head

    ive learned a lot in the last 3 month ;-;

    That merchants won't sell certain things if you've already had certain dealings with some of the other merchants in the game.

    Perhaps Pendent meant some things can only be bought once. If you by the repair box from that guy in Undead Burg, then you can't buy it from Andre.

    Yes, repairbox, both smithboxes, bottomless and master key can only be acquired once each playthrough.
    But I assumed that Pendant was referring to buying spells from Dusk and Elizabeth?

    Havel's shield gives you a buff instead of bashing someone in the face with it. I was wondering what it did so I pressed LT, when my guy stood still I was confused...when suddenly..rocks all over my body!

    I think the invader pissed himself when he saw me approach him in this form.

    A host and a white / yellow phantom can parry each other.

    My friend got summoned by someone, and they were horsing around waiting for invaders. Then they discovered this.

    Power within is actually good.

    PVP is fun.

    I'm good with spears, or at least better than i am with most greatswords.

    The crystal cave is bigger and has more walkways than i thought.

    Invading as a darkmoon can have me invading people far lower than my SL.
