    Cool!!
    But I think I'll stick to the female merchant area so I can just buy another 99 when I'm out and continue big grin

    Probably so you cant map it out properly and find its limits.

    Here they are....I'm gonna put them in spoilers so they don't necessarily take up the whole dang page.

    First we have five of the eight colors prominently displayed: red, blue, purple, white and one of my greens

    Spoiler:

    Where's the yeller? Right here. Again.....very obvious colors

    Spoiler:



    Next up we have pink. I included it in a picture with white and red to demonstrate that there's no mistaking these three colors in my tests.

    Spoiler:

    So far there's seven easily distinguished colors. Should be no problem right.....here's why I couldn't conclusively say "there's another one in the green spectrum"

    Spoiler:



    All of this gave me a complex with my tv so I adjusted all the settings I could and I still got roughly the same colors unless I did something really crazy with the color balance but then every color in existence was thrown off. The last picture I took was to show all seven colors together (luckily got exactly one of each green) but also to put a couple reference points in. I started thinking my tv was wacky but the orange sign and bonfire look pretty consistent with pictures I've seen others take of the game. I went around a few places (near Firelink for example) to compare the blue and green palette to online pictures and these are also fairly similar to what others posted. So....I have no idea why my greens are this crazy. Anyway....last pic from the ledge above the fire

    So the video didn't wanna work well on the last post so here it is. The audio is the PS3 fan and the resolution sucks but the colors on the edges of the explosion appear to fluctuate some.

    Screaming stone

    On a related note.....I always intended to check out the colors Patches dropped to compare. I made a list as I progressed down to the area with Rhea and counted seven stones with each color noted. Then I fell off a cliff in the dark, saw the color of the stone near the pit had changed and confirmed that all seven had changed upon death. Conclusion? He doesn't have anything special going on with the stones.

    P.S. I probably have more interesting videos on my channel if you decide (rightfully) that this one is garbage.

    New Experiment:
    Blue: 23
    Pink: 14
    Green: 22
    Yellow: 17
    White: 16
    Red/Orange: 20
    Cyan: 18
    Purple: 12
    Total: 140

    The results are disppointing, purple is losing right now but when I was around half red and yellow were almost missing...
    So I've got to say no rare color right now.

    I also tried throwing like 50 in one spot and got this huge white fireball glowing in all colors but nothing more big grin

    Something strange did happen tho. I did the experiment in the same exact spot of the other one, the one from my pic. Only this time the stones got UNDERWATER and all I could see was the sparkling but not the stone itself.
    Is the water level rising/lowering??

    Creepy with the water. In my video you can see a large white pyre of 100 stones in one spot. Like, I was hoping that if I could just mix them all together it would do something special.

    Yeah me too, instead it just made me blind :cyclops:
    The water thing is indeed a little creepy, I'll go back there some other times and check it!
    Did anybody else notice it?

    I'm sorry to bring this back from the dead, but I've read the few topics on prism stones and this seems to be the most relevant - the 'eighth colour' seems to me to be a cheeky nod to Terry Pratchett's Discworld. Taken from the Wikipedia page:

    Octarine
    The colour of magic on the Discworld, also referred to as the eighth colour. This fictional colour is strongly indicative of magic and can only be seen by wizards (who sometimes describe it as resembling a fluorescent greenish-yellow purple) and cats. As in conventional human colour vision, colour opponency prevents the perception of reddish-greenish or yellowish-bluish colours; it would therefore be impossible to perceive a colour as "greenish-yellow purple".

    I'm not sure how big Pratchett is in Japan, but it could be that the 'rare' part of the description is just a reference to octarine. Of course, the similarities could just be coincidence!

    It'd have been a nice touch if the eighth colour only appeared if you were wearing , say, Big Hat's set!

    Edit: Or those wearing the Cat Covenant Ring. Heh.

    @Rynoa- Nice job. Have you thought about trying this experiment in the abyss after beating the Four Kings, as the darkness should give you more clarity?

    Edit. Forget that I've just read one of your earlier posts that show you've already tried this, only to find the Abyss swallowing them up! sad
