    modifying (solved)

    Post by gnowhere85 on Sun Feb 19, 2012 4:22 pm

    hi DS forum, just gave the large ember to the big old blacksmith near darkroot basin (i can't remember his name), it's supposed to let me modify normal weapons to +10, but no weapons appear on the modify equipment menu, am i missing something?

    is your weapon +5? if not then it won't appear. once you modify a weapon to +6 it can be upgraded like normal in the upgrade tab to +10 keep in mind that you need large titanite shards for +6 - +10 and if you get the very large ember you need titanite chunks from +11 - +14 and a titanite slab for +15

    so you had a longsword +5 (just plain +5 not fire or anything) you talked to him and he asked for the large ember and you press yes to give it to him. he gets all happy and the modify tab works but you can't get your longsword +5 to appear there? unless you did sum thing different I'm not sure what to tell you

    yeah, i'm carrying a few +5 standard weapons without any other mods but nothing comes up on that tab as if i need something else or havn't spoken to a certain npc? do you need to be on a second playthrough for further modification? sorry i'm not making sense.

    Have you tried another item? I'm stumped on this too, you may have stumbled upon a bug. I'm sorry for a really late and pretty useless reply, it's 5 in the morning and I'm about to crash. If you haven't already I suggest using a search engine and seeing if you can find any other instances. If I get a chance tomorrow and can remember, I'm pretty good at finding hidden stuff and may find an answer for you. I wish you luck on getting it working, being stuck with +5 is quite a problem sad

    You need +5 for that, then you go to modify equipment, one of the options will be to turn it into a Magic weapon for a green titanite shard.

    Wow Google is being totally useless for me right now. I'm sorry my brain isn't totally into it and I'm about to get busy editing the wiki. I should be able to poke around later tonight and maybe I can figure out what's happening for you.

    I'm sure you can ask people to drop you some upgraded weapons in this section, some may want payment but I imagine a few may do it for free if it's something easy.

    ohhhhhhhhhhh! i think i gave the blacksmith a very large (m)ember ( lol! ) not the large ember which means i need to get the large ember to modify to +10, then i can use the very large embers' +10 to + 15. i'm really sorry forum!
