    Curses: a weird PvP experience

    Post by PlasticandRage on Sat May 12, 2012 10:47 pm

    So last night I was PvPing in New Londo and something really odd happened that I've never seen before. I had invaded and spawned up towards the undead slaves that don't attack, and was cruising around looking for the host. I rode the first elevator, the shortcut down into the large room with the 3 DWs, and when I got to the bottom the host was standing in the doorway waiting for me with a Havel's Shield up. I blew an Acid Surge at him and quickly rode the elevator back up in order to prepare a Toxin Mist for my next trip down. So I hit the button for the elevator to go back down and just before I reached the bottom I heard a thud and saw a piece of the top of his Smough's helmet appear through the floor of the elevator. A second later he died and I got his souls. Now I'm guessing what happened was that he got a little too close to the elevator entrance and when I brought it back down he was pushed into the hole and died. That's not the weird part though. The weird part is just as it was happening I started getting cursed. My curse bar came up and quickly filled about a quarter full, then when he died it just disappeared off screen. What could that have been? I was under the impression that none of the cursed weapons actually cursed other players, or even enemies for that matter, and anyway I'm very familiar with everything he had visibly equipped and none of it is even remotely related to curses. He was wearing Smough's armor combined with the Catarina set, had a Havel's Great Shield and a Black Knight GA. Any ideas?

    I'm also under the impression that there are no enemies in New Londo that can cause curses.

    It has happened to me as well; triggers when I kill an invader, but not all the time.

    I guess it's a bug.

    A very scary bug.

    Even in death, the Bed of Chaos wants us suffer.

    Yeah it scared the crap out of me. Because I was trapped in the elevator shaft when it started happening and I didn't know what he could be doing that would be cursing me

    Do you know how much humanity you had at the time? And what did you invade with?

    Always happens when you kill a host and when you defeat a DW and retrieve his bloodstain. It's like you get a bit cursed for taking a life away.

    It's your curse resistance going up.

    Ah yeah, as your humanity increases your curse resistance increases too. Silly me, but made a bit sense lol.

    It went up pretty radically though. It wasn't like a little sliver. It jumped up to at least a quarter full really quickly. I had 22 humanity and I had invaded with a cracked red orb.

    I've also killed quite a few people in PvP and never seen that before.

    Not saying you're wrong, because it does make perfect logical sense. I just can't figure out why it would have happened then and no other time.

    It lagged on the death message prolly. You wouldn't exactly notice it with the whole "master of the world killed" taking up the center of the screen. That WAS an unconventional death after all.

    that's true. Definitely the first time I've ever killed anyone that way. I also should mention I was PvPing a Japanese kid. Which definitely backs up the lag logic

    Don't those 2 muck-balls that spit out the exploding heads have curse? Maybe he was close to one when you invaded...

    I don't think they do. I could be wrong though? I think the only things that curse you are basilisks and Seath.

    And regardless I was an invader so his enemies wouldn't have been able to hurt me anyway.

    i had a very weird glitch occur in pve with curse build up. i was in the great hollow trying to get ores and i had already done a few runs and past the curse frogs. i had closer to 30 humanity(adds curse resist) and was wearing dusks robe(amazing curse resist) and each time i ran through and killed the frogs my curse bar was huge. then one one of the last runs i was running through that area and since my bar was so big there wasnt a need to avoid the smoke(or was there?). My curse bar somehow changed from this massive bar to the same size as if you had 0humanity and no armor(with curse resist). i instantly got cursed and died. this was the first time ive been cursed since my first playthrough.
