    Pendant use confirmed by Dark Souls creator.

    It's a prank!

    http://kotaku.com/5957886/dark-souls-secret-revealed-director-was-pulling-a-prank-on-players?post=53998422

    There is a Japanese guy somewhere who's put 5,000 hours into Dark Souls.

    He is looking down at his hands, and he is weeping.

    It kinda made me weep, and I only invested a small fraction of that. I spent at least one play through, which was a good 40-50 hours, just trying pendant experiments

    You're back! Hurrah

    As for the Pendant, it's just an unfunny joke I think. :pendant:

    If we could actually realistically organize something like that it would definitely be a pretty funny statement.

    Yeah ok. No way any of us aren't buying that game Day 1. Most would give their first born to get it early. Some of us already have.

    I think a new Souls game would be the only game I would go to a midnight release for on a school night, knowing full well I'll only get about 2-3 hours of sleep. As far as the pendent goes, I never really put much time into it, but I always kind of hoped it would be something big

    Alright! Bring on the next bait!

    This the best thing about the Souls series. It forces you to learn how to take in the pain, love it, and crave for more...

    I can't help but laugh. I spent two builds going through NG++ on each one hoping something would happen.

    Nothing happened.

    All I can think about is how he might have been lurking the forums laughing every time someone added to the conversation of what the pendant does.

    c'mon guys you gotta laugh!!!

    Many gamers have grown up thinking every 'item' simply HAS to have a use in a video game, and he played on it beautifullly, even saying himself numerous times it had NO use!!

    Dark Souls is one epic love letter to *** with your mind, he actually put 'rubbish' in there for a start, and how many of us thought 'oooh, I wonder what this does?'. . .suckers!!

    aswell as being a grand master of design, the guys got a sense of humour too!! top man that Miyazaki, I like him even more now!


    also. . . the reason he would pick the pendant from the start then? just so the game could be played through as he intended, unaided, no help, raw. . . . Prostration

    really?


    checks wiki. . . .

    aaaah titanite chunks!!!! well, thats fair enough then, another attempt at subterfuge perhaps?


    I spent ages wondering what the pendant does, theres something quite nice about being fooled though, its like having no idea how a magician does his trick. . .it makes you feel human,

    . . . .fills you with with humanity even. . .

    . . . . surely not!!! winking

    Everything in DkS has a use. Except the pendant.
    Btw can we stop saying its use has been confirmed and say its unuse has been confirmed?

    Now that we know it's a hoax it'd make probably the most fitting item to use as a pvp item drop trap.
