    One derp, one discovery

    Post by Dj-B-Man-Jr on Tue Mar 20, 2012 8:02 pm

    After about 500+ hours on this game i've only just realized that oswald isn't floating!?!? I always thought he was blessed by velka and had powers and such. For this reason i never attacked him for fear of him flying around and punishing me for my sins.

    Thats a pretty big derp on my part haha silly

    Today i also discovered that dusk moves her sign around. I was always used to seeing her sign right infront of the rock before the lake and was really surprised when i saw it in the water.

    Just 2 things i'd thought i'd share. lol!

    He might as well. He's a fairly tough hombre first time you face him with that rapier and its unique move set.

    I never attacked him, dunno why. In my next playthrough, before going NG+ I will attack him to see what he does. Prob wear velkas rapier in right hand and velkas talisman in left hand

    I guess you could call it a derp, but after *I honestly have no idea how long I've played but it's at least multiple hundreds of hours*, I only just now realized that you can open the shortcut to Lost Izalith from the other side (the side with Solaire and the titanite Demon) regardless of your covenant or rank. All that time wasted farming Demon titanite and Red Chunks/Slabs :|

    Just approach it while it's closed from the Lost Izalith side instead of the Demon Ruins side and you'll get an option to open it that won't result in a "locked by some contraption" message. At the time I did it I was in Way of White, so I doubt rank or covenant matters, though it could use more people to confirm if it's legitimately "anything goes" or not.

    Ahh...I think I may have just gotten people's hopes up a bit much with this, since something I've just thought of might have been an issue in getting it to work. It happened on my Gwyn build that I had done something special with a box that has no limit to what it can carry so as to acquire certain gear for role-playing purposes sooner than most players could recieve it, so maybe the something special interfered with the memories of what covenants the character had belonged to or not and allowed it to work

    (really trying to avoid mod wrath by not saying specifics here...)

    Reaper, I opened the shortcut from the lost izalith side with my first character. No chaos covenant, no glitch, so yes it definitely works.

    I can also confirm it works as long as you do it from the other side. Really I just read to much, given enough time I can literally become a living wiki....

    Weird I always assume doors can be opened from the other side in this game always well minus the crest shortcut at forest.

    I've only ever gotten it to open from the bridge/titanite demon side. Even with Chaos +2 I don't know how to open it from the kirk corpse side, heh.

    Another door you can't open from the back is the door from the Depths into blighttown. You can climb all the way up from the bottom of blighttown, and then I think it gives you a message saying it can't be opened from this side.

    Does this mean that if I opened the door from the Izalith side in my first playthrough, it will be open in my second. I hope so.

    Only time I attack Oswald is on my speed run. Otherwise, he's much too valuable an NPC. His ability to de-agro other NPCs is invaluable.

    Since Siarii is still nowhere to be found, I feel this forum needs someone to start another one of those. I say go ahead happy
