    Lightning Ember Idea (spoilers)

    Post by Carphil on Thu Mar 01, 2012 3:41 pm

    Just one idea

    You know after beating Gwyndolin there are three chests in Gwyn's tomb. One has Sunlight blade, the other has the brass set, and the last one is empty. What if the last chest had the "Lightning ember"? Then you would have to give it to the Giant Blacksmith, makes sense no?

    I think that would reduce the amount of people with elemental builds, griefers, and also makes the game more dificult, because for now its too easy for someone just arrive Anor Londo and already make a lightning weapon with the chunks you get from black knights and crystal lizards earlier.

    What you guys think?

    I believe that 'empty' chest contains the Maiden Set if Rhea dosen't make it to the Archives.

    Why would it contain the maiden set?
    I got the maiden set in the archives long before I ever found her in ToG.

    Because no one really knows what is suppose to be in the chest and somehow early on maidens was mentioned and no one seems to really be able to disprove or prove it. Heck I myself keep forgetting to skip the set and see if it appears in there as I perfer to do Gywndolin before Gywn.

    Not a bad idea really, he can be an annoyance if you are not aware, and the implications of eternal sin fits nicely with it >.>

    I think it's a good idea Car, since it's a final level upgrade for weapons would make sense for it to need an ember, just like the Occult is nicely hidden if put in with the optional boss gwyndolin

    I have killed Gwyndolin before even getting the Lordvessel, as I joined with Kaathe before ringing any bell. I was so excited because I thought that by killing Gwyndolin, Gwynevere was going to disappear and the God of War would had given me the Lordvessel instead. Also I checked the chest and it was empty.

    I don't think the ember would make sense with the Giant Blacksmith's lore which heavily implies that he's always been able to make lightning weapons and that blacksmiths use the embers to "teach" themselves new weapon forging techniques. Reading the Giant Blacksmith Hammer it states that he specifically uses it because it's made of wood and would interfere with his ability to craft lightning weapons since wood wouldn't carry the shock of the weapons back into him. He is always seen with this hammer even the first time the player meets him, implying that he's always known how to make lightning weapons, or else he wouldn't need the hammer in the first place.

    That being said, I'm not opposed to there being a Lightning Ember. I like the idea of it being in Gwyn's Tomb in the empty chest. Would definitely make it harder to acquire the weapons for low-level twinks (at least those who don't abuse the BB glitch :|) and even somewhat makes sense in the lore (With Gwyn's passing goes the knowledge of how to manipulate lightning).
