    Stuck In The Great Hollow

    Post by Tolvo on Tue Sep 10, 2013 12:56 pm

    So I'm stuck in the Great Hollow and have no way of getting out.  My game glitched or something, because one of the branches leading out has an invisible wall on it I can't get around.  From the bottom, taking the ladder up, then the next ladder, there is a branch to go up that is yellow with green on the sides.  At the end of it is an invisible wall I can't pass, I've been able to go through it on other characters I just tested it on, this one it is impassable.  Is this a glitch we have not seen enough and has never been reported?  What is happening?  I can't warp out or anything either, I rested at the bottom then ran into this on my way out.  Do I have to reroll my entire toon because frankly this on top of many personal issues and forum related ones are making me think I should just quit playing Dark Souls, the stress is getting to me.

    I died once also, only once, and it left no bloodstain.  I had 10,000 souls since I rarely ever die in the Great Hollow and that is pissing me off too.

    Is there anything possible that I can do to remove an invisible wall, or am I just completely screwed?

    Well I don't know about the wall but I can help you get back any stuff you had if you want to, im in the process of making space for new characters anyway. Maybe there is something wrong with that character save, did you pick up any items recently from an unknown player? I know that people can mod items to break your game. Still I don't think that would explain the invisible wall.

    I think I may have the same wall-I've died there many times. It's by where I think the last crystal lizard is, the last wooden floor between branches before the one with two ladders. To get up it, you have to do a sprinting jump within a certain distance before getting to the ledge of the platform-if you do it right next to it, you won't go over it.
    I've ALWAYS had this wall, before and after I got my ps3 online. (it was unpatched before I got it online) While it's obnoxious and little difficult, I can get past it.

    Of course, this is assuming that we're taling about the same spot. We may be havnig issues in different areas.

    I wonder if we're the only two (or perhaps just me) who has this wall, or if everyone is and they just always warp out so they haven't noticed it.

    On another note, I once fell through a hole in last platform with basilisks and landed on a tiny branch in the middle of the hollow. I lost half my health and was stuck on a tiny branch that I think wasn't even meant to be able to stand on-I'm actually surprised that I didn't just phase right through it. I fell off doing my best to leap to the path way further away than I could have jumped and lost my 900k souls and 50-or-so humanity because my bloodstain was on that branch.

    I had to wait a bit to let my dirty mind laugh at Tolvo being stuck in Great Hollow. big grin

    Now, to actually try and help you.
    Seems like you're screwed. If nothing, even rolling and jumping can be done and you can't warp, then I'm afraid you have to delete the toon. I wouldn't give up just yet though. I got stuck on some sort of invisible wall in there as well, but I thought it was patched. As stupid as it may sound, what helped me was to do a backstep. That somehow got me through.

    Thanks for all the advice guys, the backstep didn't plainly work.  But for some reason, doing the reverse backstep, the Ravioli step, worked and got me past it. *** the Great Hollow, never again without the Lordsvessel.

    Yep; I walked out of the Great Hollow once. I always wait for the LV so I can warp out.

    The worst is running past the hydra without the Lordvessel at a low level and no stealth abilities, and then getting stuck on the other side when he does his jump...

    Nice to see you got out. I suggest doing what I do. I get twenty estus flasks from Firelink then go get whatever I need in Blight town and the great hollow. I'll only rest at a bonfire for farming slugs. That way, just home word bone all the way back. Screw that entire area.

    Tip for the future, just keep walking against the invisible wall and move left. It looks like you're going to fall off but you get up on the platform first, can do it just running or sprinting.

    I also got stuck there the first time and spent quite some time trying to jump it which rarely works. You literally float on air when going left, looks daring. See for yourself:


    But there is an even nastier spot in Blighttown, I call it the troll border Prostration . Oh I loathe this spot so much, it really tries to pull you sideways off the branch as soon as your feet touch the planks:

    I found that for that Blighttown spot I can more reliably traverse it if I run rather than trying to walk slowly and carefully.

    I usually just run through that blight town spot and don't fall.

    So, Am I the only one who doesn't have too much a problem with the actual platforming in this game?

    There is a difference between problems with the platforming, and problems with glitched out invisible walls that should not be there in a place that trying to go around the wall means falling to ones death.

    They were talking about blight town. Maybe I misinterpreted what they meant then.

    Blighttown tip. Ignore the branch, or whatever it is path and climb up. On the floor with the enemy, you can jump down and reach the place you would need to cross the branch to get to. Once there, do what you must and to get back, use Homeward.

    I used to do it your way magey. But, I did it unpatched testing out the DH glitch. I always went with 10 eustus on the bf at the top of the trees just outside the swamp area, (probably the one you mentioned). Do what you need to do down there and DO NOT touch the 2 bf's on the way to dragon.

    It isn't an invisible wall, instead the tiny bump that connects the branch and the platform acts like a piece of terrain that's like the "no go, slidey" pieces of terrain (still with me)
    It always gets my characters stuck and I just run and jump between the branches, towards the platform float for a second or 2 and then my character just rolls onto the platform as usual.

    I hope I explained that well enough.
    Also I'm not sure if leg armour plays apart in the dodgey stump.

    If it's the same spot that Mental Gear posted a screenshot of, I don't think you're necessarily stuck. I've hit that invisible wall spot too. Try running around it slightly to the left. It'll look like you should fall, but keep hugging the side of the invisible wall and you should probably make it around. If that doesn't work, maybe try unequipping your armor (or put more on) to see if your burden has any impact.
