    Extra Estus Flasks

    Post by HumanSuit on Mon May 28, 2012 3:46 pm

    The other day a buddy of mine and I were doing some PVP in the forest. We were invaded by a darkwraith and either a forest covenent or whatever he might have been. I took the forest invader while my friend took the darkwraith. We killed both the invaders at the same time. My friend said something about the darkwraith dropping an estus flask. I was thinking he was mistaken and gained one because someone kindled at the bonfire he was at. A few minutes later he brought it back up and started thinking about it. I was confused because of the way he was explaining it. Apparently the darkwraith dropped an estus flask which my buddy was able to pick and equip and use. So now he has 40 estus flasks. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it just a glitch? Can it be done again.

    I have never tried.. though I don't think you should be able to drop your flask...

    Never seen it either, I think it could be from some sort of hacking or modding but.. that's just strange.. :|

    So no one else has encountered this? We were thinking maybe it had something to do with killing a darkwraith. Ive heard they drop titanite chunks. If this is true might it be possible that they drop other things too. My friend and I are going to do some tests soon, so if I dont get an answer soon, I might have something to report in a day or two.

    ^The NPC darkwraiths drop chunks, players only leave a bloodstain for humanity.

    Update: I was mistaken. The darkwraith actually dropped the estus flask and pointed at it for my friend to pick up. So I guess there is some way to drop them.

    It is not a hack it is a new glitch. A buddy of mine found it by accident, it allows you to drop your estus.

    But the good thing is that it isn't permanent. If you drink all of them it will only refill you back to the amount of your bonfire. So if someone wanted to abuse this they would have to constantly have someone do this for them. Which would be tedious.

    Everyone is just going to stick with glitched divine blessings.

    But it goes to show that there is still stuff hidden in this game that no one has discovered yet.

    This might be related to when I was invading for the forest hunters and when I invaded a message came on my screen the one that you get from getting the rite of kindleing.

    it happens some times when invading in the forest and then Im forced out of the game.

    I dont understand your wording. You said its not permanent but you can refill them at the # your bonfire allows. My buddy has 20 flasks at the forest bonfire, so wont it just refill both flasks to 20, giving him 40?

    This why I was so intrigued. I love that this game is still such a mystery to most people. Even if this is a way to cheat horribly, its cool learn something completely new.

    Thanks for your post.

    You can already theoretically get 99 estus flasks if 99 people kindled bonfires you had used.

    Not true. Your estus flask cannot exceed 20 flasks. Even if you have 20 and someone kindles your bonfire, you will receive no more flasks.

    Sorry I probably wasn't clear enough as I don't want to discuss the actual glitch method.

    But what happens is your friend should not have 2 sets of 20 estus. He should have one set of 40 or so I am told. So when he rests at a bonfire it will only allow him to refill it back up to 20.

    At least that is how I understand it, I could be wrong as I have not actually done it myself.
