    Strange Glitch?

    Post by Jenkmaster on Thu May 16, 2013 8:19 am

    I am on my first playthrough of dark souls and I get invaded by a guy with a blob on his head he hit me and then I turned into a feathery scales creature with a blob on my head and then he couldn't hurt me. So I have no idea what that's about if someone could tell me that would be great.

    Alright, I've actually heard of this before.

    They have forced you to become a dragon, and given you an egghead.

    The dragon body will not benefit you without the stones, and the egg head causes you to get less souls from kills.

    So then, the dragon body should disappear if you die. The egg head needs to be removed with an item called the Egg Vermifuge.

    How far are you into the game?

    I'm afraid it will be a little while until you can get the Egg Vermifuge then, but at least you can get rid of the dragon body by just dying. I'd suggest not playing in the online mode if that is possible for PC for a time at least until you can get this fixed. You should also know you might not be able to wear helmets, I don't have the PC version myself so I'm not entirely experienced but I do hope this helps. After Blight Town you should be able to buy them, or if you go into Darkroot and kill the tree lizards a ton eventually they will drop a Vermifuge which should remove the head.

    Keep in mind this sort of hack may be unremovable by normal means. I should also mention you definitely faced a hacker not a simple glticher.

    Seeing as it was his first run early on, it was probably to try and ruin his current run or make it a lot more difficult, or to just freak the player out.

    IF you don't meet up when you get to the church take a right and run down the steps, use the bonfire and move on down to the forest(run past headless dude). There's tree serpents in there that drop the egg that heals egghead, drop rate is decent enough on them. You'll be getting less souls while in egghead form.

    Probably because he needed advice on what to do, but would have died anyway so telling him to go kill himself to get rid of the dragon form. lol!

    I relieved that guy yesterday. Not only he had eggs planted on his head, he also was cursed and therefore unable to summon. So i had to guide him from sunlight altar all the way to female merchant via gfwl msg. He did it and we finally lifted the grudge cast upon him by a lousy hacker. Read this you puny little griefer. We do not succumb to those like you!

    Just don't post it, that is against the forum's rules. I'm glad you got that all fixed and good on you Zyr for helping him out, if I had a rep to give left I'd give you one for being so helpful to him. If someone is reading this feel free to throw him one.
