    Completely useless facts I find interesting

    Post by skarekrow13 on Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:22 am

    So between forest invasions tonight I'm smashing the wooden barriers in the burg. I chop them with an overhead attack the split and fall. I hit them from the right side with a sweep. They get pushed to my left. I hit them from the left with a running sweep and they they fall straight down like the overhead attack. So apparently they didn't make a destruction animation as if they were hit from the left side. Not sure how I lived without knowing this before

    Couldn't make a left-side destruction animation but they can put in an attack that stabs people who are resting in the coffin in the Catacombs, lol.

    I wonder what happens if you get invaded and get in and wait for 30 seconds. Do you go to Nito or does it just not work?

    And if it works can they follow you or do they go home?

    Another question is can you see summon signs inside there if Nito is alive? Would be a cool spot for FC

    You cant place summon signs in boss areas.
    I think they would go home but it would be cool if it turned into a secret area for them to explore.

    So you are in the actual boss area? Wasn't sure if the game considered it a different type of location or not.

    That'd be cool to test. I need to start invading people and telling them to run to the coffin

    Ok so another useless thing I discovered which is interesting. I have been using the ring of favor and protection and was experimenting with rings for the second slot. On my other slot I accidentally clicked on my equipped favor ring. It switched slots rather than breaking. Why does this fascinate me? Because in order for this to happen you would have to put the tip of the first finger (with the ring) touching the tip of the desired finger and slide it from one to the other so it's never "off." Think of your badass warrior delicately trying to fumble this trick. And yes, I did do this with my wedding band

    I should post a YouTube video titled "how to switch the ring of favor and protection without it breaking" and then have a video of me and my wedding ring switch

    How about the fact that the pierce attack on the DGM does Slash damage, even though the tip is blunt.

    Also, technically the DGA is a hammer. It's not sharp at all.

    I dunno. That sounds awfully close to practical knowledge to me. I didn't know the first one and yeah. What the hell "ax." What's your deal?

    Yeah, it's practical, but it was the first thing that popped into my head.

    I kid I kid. That's the kinda stuff I'm talking about. I got another one. Rolling is sufficient to break barrels and crates yet does not hurt anyone. Even if they're in the barrel you break.

    Well obviously you'r in the wrong armour silly
    The small trees in the forest, when they break they break into about 5 pieces. Only one of these pieces can be kicked around.

    A kick with a fist weapon changes the attack to a knee instead.

    That's pretty cool. This one would be useful if you decided to waste a few hours for nothing. Since I can't see anyone making this significant we'll call it useless. Hitting walls damages your weapon very slightly

    Here's a new one.

    There are only two creatures in game that can curse you: Seath, who's blind and as such has great hearing, and the basilisks, who have massive "eyes" and are deaf. They are opposites and yet the same!

    the massive eyes are actually curse mist sacs, their real eyes are below them near the mouth and are tiny.

    The location of the dark sign looks like it's right over where the heart should be. You can see it on the Weak hollows that tend to ambush you.
