    OMG NEW Dark Hand Stuff!!

    Post by GkMrBane on Thu Nov 15, 2012 10:44 am

    Ok I don’t want to gloat but I totally deserve all the credit for MY discovery.

    You can use the souls drain attack for the dark hand (wait for it) IN THE LEFT HAND!!!!!! Da! DA!! DAA!!!!

    Ok so its do-able however its not really effective and is more than likely a bug here is the setup I was using to give you an idea.

    http://www.mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=282023041890989936


    Note: I have my inventory optimized so that I can switch between items my character is holding soooo here we go.......

    1. have a great bow ready to switch out with your faith talisman

    2. switch to you G-bow and prep an arrow but hold it make sure you zoom in for manual arrow shot

    3. (quickly) fire the arrow and zoom out of the manual aim ONLY once the arrow has been fired.

    4.(QUICKLY) before the animation is over go into you menu and switch to your talisman (make sure to only press the button to select your talisman ONCE)

    5. Now press the button (B) xbox or (X) ps3 or whichever button you use to back out of the menu TWO times only

    6. and then the animation for the humanity drain should start except in your left hand (the animation looks like it was meant to be there)

    Now I know its nothing to fancy and I haven’t tested this with other easier bows to use or what not but its really neat. happy

    It does dmg to hollows like it would in the right hand but haven’t tested to see if it will drain from NPC's or other players.

    Now I discovered this while waiting for PVP (hosting) in the Berg and I would snipe the hollows on the rafters with my bow in between invasions. It happened that I got invaded while doing this, so I switched back to my original setup as quickly as I could and the result was a humanity drain attack which made my invader think I was a baddie hacker to which he threw himself of the bridge.

    oooohhhh we laughed about it later. Thanks.

    This is actually how the shield bash glitch works. Interesting, I think others may have known about this but I actually didn't think to try it with the Dark Hand.

    The way i do this is: have dark hand in the left hand ( obviously ), have a sword in the right hand ( in my case was the abyss greatsword ), then you change to the two handed stance and hold the block button, while holding the block button you go in the equipment menu and take the sword off and if it works your character should do the move with the dark hand.
