    Sen's Fortress Cage Elevator

    Post by Elevander on Tue May 22, 2012 4:11 pm

    If this is known/has been stated before, my sincere apologies!

    When following the pathway parallel to the rock giant and taking a right, there are two cages in the middle of the room suspended over a pit, the left one can be unlocked and then ridden down like an elevator (it drops you off on the walkway that has the first set of swinging blades).
    Once activated, the effect seems permanent, thus creating an easy shortcut to bypass the blades/boulders section of the fortress.

    welcome to the forums!
    I think this is pretty well known and I also think it is on the wiki, but nothing wrong with spreading the word, there can always be people who have missed it happy

    Wow, yeah, just went to reread that section, and somehow I skipped over the whole paragraph mentioning that and how to get to the rock giant, now I feel like a dunce lol I found it strange not remembering reading about that, seemed somewhat obvious lol!

    Xbox, but I'm playing offline, 'cuz we have a a crappy router, so I keep getting booted off of online play (and getting the "not properly quit" message, which I'd rather avoid, knowing it can potentially corrupt my save data); and my wife keeps getting booted off of Diablo, so I know it's not my game disc or 360 f'ing up.

    *sigh* The woes of modern technology...

    If I ever do, I just might happy Going to go NG++ or +++ before I try to go online, so I can say I fully enjoyed the solo part of the game in case my data gets corrupted after all.

    Hello & welcome. Did know about the elevator as a matter of fact. It's very handy. I just love the way it stops on the walkway right in front of a Serpent Guard though. Still it wouldn't be Dark Souls if things were too easy. I've found that's it's easier to cast Fall Control and equip the Rusted Iron Ring than try to fight it on the walkway. Just leap off and leg it as quick as you can to the ladder in the top right corner but watch out for the lightning attacks from the Serpent Mages on the ledge above.

    I am glad he did,I consider myself a bit of a buff on Dark Souls knowledge.
    I did not know this.

    So kudos to you OP for making me a little bit wiser.

    Thank you......

    I can Imagen it does friend,this is such a relieve to find out.
    I usually do not have any trouble with Sen`s Fortress although you just never know,one day I may have a bag full of souls and make that wrong footing and fall to my death.
    Not now though as I have been shown the path so to speak.

    Haha, seeing that I'm not the only one who missed that makes me feel slightly less like a dumbass for posting it lol And sorry if I don't reply real quickly, but I have two little ones running around, and between them, cooking, cleaning, etc, and actually playing DS, I don't always have the time to do more than glance at the new posts.

    Oh, and Bio, we use Charter, but hardwireing through the modem doesn't give me issues, just using the router does, but we have to many wireless laptops in the house to not use one.
