    Iron Tarkus/Golem Fail

    Post by Whknight on Fri Apr 27, 2012 3:50 pm

    So I've been pretty bummed and a bit ragey at Dark Souls the past two days. I had decided I would save my souls (80,000) so I could buy Twinkling and upgrade the Silver Knight armor to being somewhat decent. Well, I had to go through Sens still and I seriously thought, "This shouldn't be so bad, as long as I keep my wits about me with the walkways, Tarkus should beat the golem and I'll be fine." I was only half right. Getting through was a cakewalk, but when I entered that fog gate with Tarkus at my side my luck dropped all the way to the core of the Earth and out the other side (Yes I know gravity would prevent things from going out the other side...)

    Short version, no one did what they are suppose to and I've lost all my 80,000 souls and all of my humanity and it makes me sad sad

    Full version:

    Spoiler:
    I run up and we both started attacking, but he was being a trooper and not becoming off-balanced. Then out of no where I get grabbed, and before "Oh crap!" leaves my mouth I'm on top of one of the broken pillars near death. I flask then try to jump down to finish the fight, only to be grabbed again and thrown off the edge to my death. Well, that was... akward? Pretty much one of my first deaths against him and it was a dosey. So now here I am at the bonfire, with no humanity at all, pondering what just happened and what I am going to do about it. Being in a slightly upset mode I head over to the tower knight and smack him around and get rewarded with a humanity! I turn human, go back to Tarkus, and about to enter the door when a thought crosses my head. "I should play it extremely safe and use that rare ring of sacrific I just got since I don't have any others." With ring on I enter, and we charge again.



    I sidestep right to the point there is no more bridge, hoping to let Tarkus get the golems attention while I attended other matters. Well I got charged instead, I raise my shield against an oncoming axe slam, and go flying off the edge from the recoil.... At this point I'm fully dumbstruck and now just want to murder that hunk of scrap metal. Enter again with Tarkus and forgoing safety we charge and Tarkus's first hit offsets it... I stare angerly at my screen then wail away till it's dead. I quicky run over to my bloodstain is, only to find out I can't access it, nope it's on a higher plane and I can't reach it. Attempted several different methods trying to get to it all ending in failure, I swear if I had or I would have spammed them. I did do hoping it would obey my commands and come down, but no.:|

    Oh man, if that ever happened to me, my controller would have been out the window. That really sucks. I would drop you some souls, but I'm on PSN. sad

    Anyways, I hope you make all your souls back over time, so good luck.

    Which playthrough you on? You're pretty well poised to get those souls back pretty easy if you want. But seriously.....that's wicked lame.

    Sorry to hear that I make about 500,000 souls every 3 hours of play and I usually by tons of materials and hand them out to people who are nice.

    Was a new playthrough, and no it is completely unreachable, if you enter the area from the fog gate, go all the way to the center and look slightly to your right, you'll see a decent chunk of pillar on it's side, my bloodstain is on the top of that.

    AWW MAN! That SUUUUCKS! Good news: Souls will always be back happy

    I'd say "co-op to get your souls back" but the main co-op area is Anor Londo =/

    So, instead, get 20k, open up the gate to the forest, and glitch the heck out of those NPC Forest Protectors! 6k every run ain't so bad haha!

    Ahhh... I remember the days of glitching in order to farm souls.

    I'm just kidding haha! If you for serious want to glitch for souls, I can totes send you a tutorial thingy, but I'd advise against it.

    That's frustrating. I've often wondered why they don't make boss areas a special zone where your bloodstain always appears right outside the fog gate if you do die, rather than in with the boss. Particularly in ones where the boss changes position if you die the first time, like how Seath can park on top of your bloodstain in the middle in subsequent fights.

    I'd also just put your sign down outside his entrance and coop on the golem for a while, you'll earn those souls right back in safety, and from the same foe that owes you in the first place. There's actually pretty good coop traffic there 'cause people usually go human to get Tarkus anyway.

    I'd be opposed to that befowler. On my first playthrough every fog gate was a decision because I knew it could mean a boss or death. Every time I would have to say to myself "do I go back and spend these souls or am I comfortable gambling with them?"

    Heck ya! I actually didn't have the opportunity to have Tarkus with my pyromancer sad I was playing the game through with a friend, and we grabbed another online player. I did get to use Tarkus on my dex guy. +5 Uchi isn't as awesome as fireballs, but it gets the job done XD
