    New Discovery: Possible hidden Gravelord NPC

    Post by Chaos Spectre on Sat Apr 28, 2012 7:37 pm

    So, most of us have seen the text dump and have seen the whole section where it names all the bosses and at the end, it says "Gravelord Servant". Well, it might just of been discovered to be real.

    My friend got dark souls from his friend, and he entered the painted world. He is on Vanilla and is playing offline, and somehow, Black phantom infected undead started showing up. He asked me why they were there, and I was puzzled. Here is how he stated they started showing up.

    "Enter painted world hollow, die a couple times, go human, see black phantom enemies, die, stay hollow, but still see them, die again, and they vanish."

    He doesn't know how he triggered them, and by the time he texted me, they were already gone. Hes gonna try and spawn them again so he can hopefully track down the summoning sign, but either way, this might prove that the "Gravelord Servant" Boss exists. To the painted world I go.

    EDIT: He was also in the way of white.

    I know from has done things to simulate online play, like dw invasions from leeroy and Kirk or summoning Beatrice or solaire. So maybe this is a gravelord stimulation.

    some people have posted about getting gravelorded while palying offline so it might be true, hopefully if you find the sign you let us know.

    The EXACT thing happened to my friend, and the phantoms disappeared at some point for him.
    I brought it up in an old post but no one answered. Thank you for shedding light on this again!

    Maybe it is a simulation that was always a little glitchy so the patches eventually got rid of it.

    Well, hes gonna keep trying and I'm gonna be trying it too. If this actually exists, then being Velka has a big connection to the painted world, maybe some of those rings that were cut still exist.

    Whiskey had this while playing offline in Kirn. She got BPs playing offline with no online connection. It happens when the absence of online is there, perhaps

    My friend said he was gonna test it some more when he got the chance. We think the summoning sign might be at the top of the stairs in the harpy arena

    Just offering my opinion here but as some are saying it may be built into the game. I recall my first playthrough (which was entirely offline) and getting black phantom pinwheels in the basement under the well. I was human first, died of course. Everytime I was human they were there until I went in as a hollow they were gone. This kept happening until I defeated Priscilla. Than I got no BPs anywhere in painted world even as human.

    If there is a sign could it be anywhere in the level?

    I think they wouldnt be that cruel, likely has a trigger place and a sign somewhere like the other PvP simulations.

    I would bet the sign would be before the BPs. The BPs are meant to discourage progress in the level and send you searching for the sign so I think it should be before the BPs in the level. Then again if FROM just wanted to be **** they'd put it after lol

    I believe if you get infected online and the Gl exits the game the BPs stay in the area until a GL is defeated there. That may be your problem.

    If you get infected by a Gravelord and they sign off its possible to be infected with no sign to invade through. You need to hope a GL in your player cluster gets killed or you find a different GL sign to invade. Other wise the BPs will go away eventually but exactly how long that takes isn't certain.

    Did you co-op at anytime and have them appear after you finished co-oping? Cause Ive been gravelorded while co-oping.

    There is no message that you've been cursed. You only 'notice' is getting ambushed by BPs you weren't expecting. Then you get a message when the BPs are cleansed by someone defeating the GL.
