    Doesn't per-say "pause" it but you are, for Dark Souls standards, pausing the game.

     Still amazed by what can be found in the game so long after it was released. Well I got one but it has to be lag because I was RSS in the Butterfly area the host rolled through me and backstabbed me before I could move from a swing. Is that a roll backstab cause wow.

    I think Dibs refers to the menu stats item etc. I tried it and yeah he is right.

    If you swung, and he rolled through it and backstabbed you before you could recover from the swing then yes, that is a rollbackstab.

    If people are good at them, they will literally only use this one attack. Fights become pretty lame, pretty quick when you run into these people.

    You can't parry Artorias, but you can parry Gwyn, the most powerful God in the world.


    And don't try giving me that excuse "Gwyn is old lololol"

    I just found this out last night:
    When you are put in the cell after being killed by Seath, if you don't turn off the recording that is playing, you continue to hear the weird music in the entirety of the dukes archives.

    I think the point is that Gwyn WAS the post powerful God in the world. If you look at his face you see he's basically gone hollow, his purpose is to keep the flame alive and it's dieing. He doesn't even get an intro cutscene.

    Only you can see the light from your characters light-sources, and you cannot detect the light-sources of other players. These elements could lead to better stealth options in future gameplay if the developers make use of them.

    I discovered that the channeler trident 1-hd R2 actually hits three times when the trident points spin around, like a bonewheel shield.  I thought the weapon was a gag one with only marginal use from the dance buff, but it's actually kinda awesome.  If you get all three hits to land it powers through poise, and you don't have to connect with the opening stab for the spin attacks to land.  In other words, if someone rolls into the attack already in progress they will still take the follow up hits.  It's actually viable on an int build as an alternative to the butterfly horn.

    On a related note, you can use the triden'ts 2h r2 when you don't have enough int, but not if you don't have enough str. Not sure about dex.

    The everlasting dragon is also the only one out we can't ever talk to, so maybe it could reinforce estus flasks, but we just aren't able to communicate that to it, and maybe dragon firekeepers work differently then other types.

    I got the key and I thought that the music would stop when I got out of the prison area, but it just kept going. I didn't notice any effects of the music outside of the prison, but it would be cool to know if there were any.

    I discovered that Balder Knights have an affinity for leather undergarments.

    Recently, I decided to start messing around with a random playthrough.  Decided to do a kind of Conan the Barbarian thing, using only two-hand swords (no shields for defense, only blocks).  I thought I would wear only the first bits of armor that dropped from skellies in the Burg and Parish.  I was sporting the Fang Boar helm, Warrior Soldier armor, and Knight gauntlets that I came to first in the Basin.

    Then, one of the Balders dropped leggings.  When I put them on, I noticed that my loincloth was replaced by a set of sexy leather underwear.  Who knew the Balders were so stylin'?  Never really wore their gear before since it's kind of...meh.  First guy who summoned me kind of stood and stared at the outfit when I spawned in.

    Communication shouldn't be an issue as the fair lady can still do these things without you having to wear the Witches ring. Just smack him around a bit with your estus flask and throw the firekeeper soul at him, he'll get the message.

    In the church, right before the boss. You have two ladders to climb.
    On the first section (Where you summon Lautrec)

    You can hit any person with a WoG that is on the section right with the boss fog.
    But they can't hit you.

    I'm currently invading there against some Max level person. And he was camping up there and we ''traded'' WoGs. But he got hit while i was not.

    He was right over me too.

    I meant it more as they may have different social habits. So we may not be able to get our message across no matter how blatant it may be to us. 

    And just because we can't understand the fair lady, doesn't mean she can't understand us.

    We understand her perfectly. She just doesn't recognize that we are there. I personally think she might be blind.

    But with the ring, I think that she senses that you are Quelagg and begins talking to you. As far as reinforcing Estus goes, I really don't know. I assume you just shove it into them. Which is a theory as to that the Dragon is not a firekeeper, as was talked about two pages ago in this thread.

    She might be able to understand us but really, who knows. There is currently no indication that she does, aside from the fact that you can donate humanity to her(which again seems like you are just shoving it into her, as far as her and the eggs go).

    Maybe we don't talk to any of the npcs, they all just really really love to pretend we can communicate, I mean I never see Griggs talking to Logan, even though Logan is supposedly his idol.

    Today I learned that if you stand around in firelink long enough, Griggs will wander around:



    This is a lie. I actually learned that force is fun to use on NPCs and won't aggro them.

    Leeroy can't one hand the Grant.  Does he even Lift ?

    Also he's a major troll:

    A bigger troll would be saying that the player character stops his breathing animation if left alone for a few hours.silly

    Ghost Blade is probably the rarest weapon in the game.
