    Not able to upgrade past +5 from Andre?

    Post by Alor on Sat Sep 21, 2013 2:17 pm

    I had no knowledge that the first Large Ember would allow me to get to +10, so I had not given it to him. I then acquired the Very Large Ember. He asked for the Very Large Ember first, then the other second. I can not upgrade my weapon past +5 still. Any help?

    Have you tried resetting and talking to him again?

    I have rested at the bonfire above the blacksmith if that's what you mean. I have also quit game and retried, though still nothing. :\

    Do you mean you can't reinforce your weapon or you can't ascend it? If it is the first one then you cant directly reinforce a +5 to +6 you need to ascend it to +6 first. If you cant ascend at all then I really dont know.

    Sorry, this is my first character and I haven't spent much time at blacksmiths. Where do you ascend a weapon at?

    Go talk to Andre again, choose the option "Weapon Ascension". You should be able to upgrade to +6.

    All I can do is make my +5 Shortsword (Doing it do use a demon soul at Giant BS) and turn it into a Divine Shortsword (middle tab) and if I got to the right tab I can Undo Ascension to the Lighting Spear.

    The first tab shows nothing in it.

    I undid the Ascension to the Lighting Spear, and I can upgrade it to +11, but my +5 weapons aren't showing up. I gave the Very Large Ember first, maybe there's a bug if you do this?

    Yeh, I think its some kind of a bug, he should not even ask you for the Very Large Ember if you didnt give him the Large Ember yet.

    You need to find the Large Ember (or however it's called) first, you find it in the Depths .
    That Ember enables you to upgrade from +5 to +6 while the one you have allows +10 to +11 .

    This isn't true at all, it doesn't matter what ember you have in your inventory first, he always goes straight to the dialogue option directly associated with the given ember

    Note from the wiki (http://darksouls.wikispaces.com/andre-of-astora)



    • If you give Andre the Very Large Ember before the Large Ember you may not be able to upgrade past +5 or to any Raw weapons

    What's not true? confused

    The OP had both the Very Large Ember and the Large Ember in his/hers inventory and Andre asked for the Very Large Ember first which shouldnt happen, since there is a glitch in the game where cant upgrade past +5 or ascend to Raw if you give the Very Large Ember first.

    I suppose I didn't see that the OP said they had both in their inventory at the same time. And I'm just going by experience of it didn't matter which order I would bring him the very large ember and large ember he always accepted both. That's my fault for not reading enough Ig :p like I said I just went off my personal experiences

    My advice for the OP is to check his inventory and ensure that he actually gave the Large Ember to Andre the Blacksmith and he has the +5 weapon on his person. Modify from +5 to +6 should be available in one of those tabs if you have the +5 weapon in your inventory (rather than the bottomless box).
