    Secrets in Sen´s Fortress?

    Post by Klosi on Mon Apr 09, 2012 2:03 am

    its obvious that one of the most fun thing about DS is the mysterious world, which seems to be full of secrets, waiting for us...

    first i would like to know,if someone here found out about THE GRAET HOLLOW by him/her self? i mean, this TWO illusionary walls are not suspicious at all... how the hack can someone roll through them on purpose? the first wall maybe, you can think: "a blank shield? wtf, something more has to be here..." but the second wall, after the chest? come on....

    second, for me its clear, that something is going on in SEN´S... someone allready pointed out that stragne balder, guading a sensless wall. i thougt about that as well. when you standing there, you can see a whole area, which you can not reach (yet)... and on the far left there is even a golem or something, waiting for you... ok, that area doesnt really look detailed, but whats about that golem? how to reach it? also, you can jumb on the platform, where the golem stands, which throws the big balls in to the hole... but there is nothing to do so far...i dont know how to get rid of this balls, but it seems like behind them is a staircase...

    what do you guys think about SEN´S? anything to find out there?

    ps. i am learning english since i am little and still suck sad

    Your english is actually pretty good. As for Sen's, I plan to go through and look deeper into that at a later time, like when i get the pendent later time lol. But yeah, i have a feeling whatever the Pendant is hiding is at Sen's or Duke's. I just haaaaate both those places so much and despise going there in general, but I must surpass my fear...for the love and glory of Dark Souls and the Sun.

    I will assume i can still welcome you to the forums even if you already have four posts, so welcome!

    Next, about the dead end in Sens: I personally think that From created this so that they could expand on the game if they wanted to. And with a possible DLC coming out... Maybe somthing could be going on with this wall in the near future.

    Ah Sen's. I've plummeted to many a death trying to explore the rooftop of that maniacal fortress. I still haven't found anything, though. sad

    personally i dont think that this wall will lead somewhere, since its a pillar, wich makes a door unlikely... maybe FROM does open the big gate behind the IRON GOLEM later... i assume that this place where the balder stays just shows us: see, there is something more...so check that out! since once i read an interview with the FROM-giys, in which they said, that everything you can see, you also can reach... and this is just so near! this guy standing there, not reachable really bothers me...i gonna make a picture later, to show you what i am talking about... i want to get to him, to kick his nuts...

    You know, it was theorized that Andre might be Sen at one point, a possible Blacksmith Deity. Maybe...Maybe I should try each of the Blacksmith hammers on every wall. I'll tell you the results.

    Welcome by the way, and that is one scary avatar. Your English isn't bad, it needs some work but as you said you are still learning, and I can understand what you mean. That's all that really matters on a forum.

    The golem that I'm guessing your talking about is the one that opened the gate, and you can in fact reach it. If you drop down to the bottom area of Sen's where the titnaite demons are, there's a ladder that leads up to the top of Sen's Fortress where you can kill the gate opening golem. If you were talking about the rock dropping one, you already seem to know that you can get to him so I don't really need to explain how to get there. I've been very infatuated with Sen's recently. I've always hated it so I speed run it every time, but I finally decided to spend time and explore as much of the area as I could. So far I haven't come up with much of anything, but I still like to explore the area

    maybe you also can try to knock that balls away, which are blocking the way to the staircase.... my character is to weak to use the hammers ... i also thought that the golem on the top which throws the firebombs could help me with that..but i allready killed him sad

    thanks for the welcoming btw happy

    Oh yeah by the way, this sort of stuff belongs in the Archives section of the site, I'll let a Moderator know to move it. Just for a future reference is all, the Archives is where all of our crazy secret and Lore searches go haha.

    At the top of that ladder will be a dead body with an item, than an illusory wall. Behind that is the second ladder finally leading to the top.

    Funny thing is German people usually don't mind my German, but I barely understand it. I have a friend who went to college for six years of Russian, and Russians hate it when he speaks their language. Probably because he tries to put on a Russian accent and just comes off as a huge racist haha.

    It's magically digressing!

    I've hit a decent amount of the walls but just got a bit under the weather while doing it, so in an hour if I'm not out registering for classes I'll get back to toiling away on those walls.

    After I jumped down to the boulder giant I've smacked those balls good with my +15 great scythe but never thought to use the hammer. I tend to land on the wall to his area too and spent a great deal of time trying to walk around/flip around/jump around on the wall but the very small rise in the bricks prevents your very athletically gifted hero from going anywhere. I also equipped fall control and jumped all over the place, typically resulting in death. My most hopeful locations were from the iron golem pillar to the stairs behind the balls. Prism stones say "Join our colors down here on these stairs that are very suspicious.....it's safe.....we promise." It's not safe. Then I noticed that the bridge to the Tarkus summoning room has no barriers to prevent falling off. Fall control will not save you, despite landing on bricks. I know Sen was devious but why did he have to add kill zones to all of the areas you should be able to safely land on.

    @skarekrow: Thanks for the update. For me, I also jumped down pretty much everwhere and died. only hope would be to somehow destroy that balls... ITS HAMMERTIME.

    @Tolvo: Danke. I am sure you want miss a wall

    Also, did you guys found THE GREAT HOLLOW by your own? Just curious. I would like to know how someone come to the idea, that that particular wall must be an illu one...

    Has anyone tried to hit the balls with one of the Iron Golem Weapons? It would make sense to me that one of those weapons would be the key.

    Yes I did find it on my own, I hit walls pretty much whenever I found a new area ever since the bonfire in Darkroot.

    Merid, I was totally already doing that...I mean, it's not like I overlooked something so obvious and am now trying to act like I was thinking about it all along.
