    Unusable Painted Guardian Weapon :( Tolvo, you should read.

    Post by Chaos Spectre on Thu May 03, 2012 11:38 pm

    I was on my way to the painted world for some PVP, and I decided to kill the Painted Guards. I was fighting my last one, and they switched out their weapons with the shield and something that looked like a thick blade, and I was so confused. The weapon did good damage to me, and it was a different moveset than the regular painted guardian sword. So I killed them, and flipped their body, to see they had no weapon in hand, it was their armor.

    Excited, I equipped their armor, and attacked an enemy, to see a 2 pop above their head. I frowned with great dissapointment, that glove looks legitimately like a blade, and I wanted to use it so badly, but it didn't work. This is soooooo upsetting, it looks so cool.

    Actually when an enemy dies their weapons vanish into the ether. I don't get why, but every time I kill the hollowed warriors in the parish I see them ragdoll and all there weapons vanish as they touch the ground. I'm curious as all hell about that weapon the Guardians' hide now though.

    Look at the tip of the hand, the metal tip on the sleeve is what they were attacking with. I wish I could record video.

    It looked so cool, I was so upset when I couldn't use it. I would make a build strictly based on it if I could.

    Hmm... I usually wear gauntlets when I wear the Painting Guardian's shirt, so the sleeves are always rolled up and I never noticed the tip looked metallic.

    Was it completely the same moveset as the PGS, or just the R2? Could it have just been their PGS glitching and going invisible, or are you positive they were actually attacking with their sleeve? Just trying to clear this up! Admittedly, it would be really cool if you could attack bare-handed with the PG shirt on and it would attack with the sleeve, dealing damage similar to the Dragon fists.

    I fought them again last night, and it was their sleeve. The attack angles were based around that blade on their sleeve. I'm gonna wear the full set tonight and try again, being all I wore was the shirt and gloves. This would be insane if it worked.

    I'm pretty sure it's just a graphical error really.

    And the PGS can be used, it is pretty weak, but hey I still amanged to host in the guild while dual wielding them. big grin

    I've seen them use it before, often when they switch out to their shields.

    I've seen it before fruit. Its damaging your equipment, kinda like acid surge.

    And I tried to full suit, and got nothing. Oh well, it looks cool when you punch though.

    its weird the serpant mages do it so rarely. i have done tons of playthroughs 10+ or more and not once seen them do it. Sens is one of my favorite areas too so im surprised from all the times going through it and invading i never once saw it. this game is strange like that when it comes to random occurrences.

    i went to anor londo to check out the painted guardians and they wont even pull out a shield or do anything besides dual wield the pgs. i feel like i remember seeing them use a target shield but i forget. is that the shield they use?

    About the Painting Guardians: I fought them today and paid attention, I'm pretty sure it's a visual glitch where their PGS isn't showing up. It's the exact same moveset as the PGS. I saw them do the R1 attacks, R2, back-step R1, etc.--all the PGS moves. I'm pretty sure it's not their sleeve (would have been cool, though).
