    As an invader your character still breathes.

    Hey guys im Shabba - this is my first post but ive been reading these forums for
    Months - you all are awesome (well most, who know what their talking about)
    Anyway, heres a little silly fact to add -

    Symbol of Avarice - as soon as the mob is killed quickly equip the helm and cheaply snag the 20% extra souls without taking the hp reduction debuff for fighting while equipped :

    Fight without a head gear on - kill a mob - press start, go into your equipped gear - head slot - and equip Symbol of Avarice - exit out - watch to make sure the additional 20% souls gained - remove the helmet - rinse & repeat

    ...i hope the above does not classify as a "glitch" - more as pushing the games mechanics to see how far they'll bend -

    ok..its a cheap move but it works!

    360 gt- Shabbalaba

    Welcome to the forums Shab. We are aware of that. It is also possible, and a lot easier with the covetoues silver serpent ring.

    I just want to say that the blacksmith giant is my favorite for his endearing dialogue. Just keep talking to him and he'll show that he basically has the psyche of a sweet dog. Also, if you're invisible, the dark hand shield doesn't show at all

    Another of my faves, soul spear can go through the cell bars in the asylum and kill the hollows trapped inside

    The anor londo sentinels do the shrug emote when they die. Kinda like "Oh well, Im not real anyway happy"

    You can see the Iron golem area from the bell tower, but not the iron golem.

    Lol. Maybe he's napping. That's really what that Balder Knight by the weird wall is guarding. The Iron Golem napping grounds. It's a tight fit but he likes to feel snuggled when he sleeps.

    He's actually detachable. You know those 6 towers around the arena? HIs legs, arms, and body split into 2 each hang on one while his head rests in his bed.

    Another useless detail I noticed last night was that fire/chaos weapon can leave residual flames on objects you hit with it, but only if the object is flammable. For example, I was smashing all the wooden tables in the archives with a chaos sword, and the resulting lumber and books would smoulder briefly. But it doesn't work on anything metal you can break, like the astrolabe thingies around the edge of the room.

    Anything any NPC's or piece of gear says to us, because it could be lying. Just like Kaathe saying we had our memory wiped to hide who we are. :x

    -------------->>> :bas:

    Point Up DAMN IT JIMMY GET BACK HERE!

    How bout how those two knights in Dark Londo wear armor from Balder? Meaning that the Balder Knights made it to Anor Londo just like the fire keeper did.
    (I follow the "Berenike was king of Balder" approach)

    It says they are ancient, which is a bit odd if you ask me.

    But then what Knights made it past Sen's? A Berinike I can believe because of Tarkus' corpse, but the Balder? King Rendel is claimed to still be in Sen's, though maybe that time distortion goes with that too.
