    Bugged Estus Flasks?

    Post by BrotherBob on Thu Oct 25, 2012 6:00 pm

    So, I'm helping my friend along with Dark Souls because he has it on the PC and because I've played it through several times on PS3. He managed to get to Firelink Shrine before I started helping him along. When he loaded his character, I was surprised to see that he didn't have Estus Flasks in his consumable slot, so I told him to do that. He told me that he hadn't received Estus Flasks. When I asked him if he had spoken to Oscar at the Asylum, he said that he hadn't and just passed by him. He said that he simply walked downstairs from the room where Oscar is and walked through the big doors to the boss. Having played the game on the PS3, I know that this is impossible because if one tries to open the big door to the boss a second time, a message will appear: "Locked by some contraption". However, I can say with certainty that I looked through his item menu thoroughly and it did not contain Estus Flasks. And yet, he was at Firelink Shrine. Has anyone else seen this phenomenon on PC (or console)?

    I remember a thread somewhere else about people dropping their flask.

    Not sure if you are looking for help on getting him one, but did you have him check for it in the chest behind where Frampt shows up?

    I actually suggested that he delete the save and restart a new game. It would have been interesting if it did show up in that chest because not having Estus Flasks is sort of a game-crasher. I was just wondering if this was just some very rare glitch or if it had happened a lot to players on the PC version.

    That is definitely the first I have seen on this. Some others on the forum may weigh in on it though. I'm on PS3 as well and have always needed to see Oscar to get out of the shrine.

    Would be a heck of a challenge doing the game without a flask.

    You're right. That would be epic. Forget the challenge of beating the game SL1. Try beating the game without using a single Estus Flask!

    I think the easiest way to accomplish that would be to farm the Forest Hunter NPCs and level up until you're at 600-ish. And then take on the cruel world without a drink. I can see it now: Dark Souls - EA (Estus Anonymous) Edition!

    It is possible to drop everything in your Inventory (Including the Dark Sign and the Soap Stones) by using a glitch thats similiar to one in Demons .
    That way you could drop one Estus Flask drink your remaining Flask up and pick your Droped Flask up again and have two sets of Estus Flasks

    But luckylie it is fixed now .
    And no there is no way geting your Flask back once its gone .
