    Havel The Quitter?

    Post by Dogwelder on Sun Apr 28, 2013 1:51 pm

    I started another playthrough of DKS recently and something odd happened when I paid a visit to Havel. I was fighting him on my own and got him down to a sliver of health, and that was when it happened - Havel suddenly stopped moving and attacking, and simply stood there, facing me. I watched him for a moment, moved around to see if he'd bite, but nothing - he just stood there.

    Eventually, I circled around him and finished him off with a backstab. Although I know the following was a coincidence, the timing was perfect - just as I backstabbed Havel, a message appeared below his feet. After he died, I read the message: "I did it!"

    You did what, Havel? Stood there and let yourself get killed?

    Man, going hollow made Havel even crazier than anyone realised...

    There is a glitch with the NPC's where they will sometimes just stand there. It's happened to me multiple times with the thief NPC in the forest. As for the message, I'd say that it's pure coincidence. Very strange coincidence, but one nonetheless.

    Apparently you can get into weird staring contests with Havel if you are right in his face and not moving.

    Takes a few tries though lol

    Any humanoid NPC has a chance to glitch up while fighting.
    The Forest Thief and Havel the Rock are some of the best examples.

    You sick sick man.

    Havel has been struggling with his anger issues for years now. His heart just hasn't been able to take it and after going through surgery his wife left him just as he needed her care for him the most. Broken he turned to lashing out at those around him, growing angrier and angrier. It ended with him disowning his daughter whom which he hadn't spoken with since, too stubborn to suck it up and admit his mistakes. His daughter lives with his ex-wife currently. Finally after isolating himself in a tower where he couldn't hurt others you come along, and literally attack him. He wants to give into his nature, but after enough time alone Havel has realized the person he hated was himself. Letting go he could finally apologize to his daughter and perhaps get on positive grounds with his ex even though their marriage was indefinitely over. For a moment there was bliss in his mind, his life could mean something again.

    During this he felt so happy he wrote a message on the ground to himself, something his therapist told him would be good. "I did it." It was going to say, "I did it, I finally saw myself for who I am and now I can stop projecting onto those around me and again be happy with those I love."

    It was going to say that, but no, you *** killed him!

    You monster!
