    1/8 life down problem

    Post by Prempo on Thu Feb 02, 2012 8:04 am

    Hello guys!

    Here i come with my problem , i hope i'm in the right place to ask , and someone can help me.
    I just reached the depths and passed the butcher guy , found the fireplace kindled it and saved.
    Then a friend of mine passed bye and we spoke of dark souls and he asked me if he can try it out , and i said , sure why not , i had no souls he could waste or something and had anyways to go to postoffice , so i let him try. As i came back he had a really guilt-ridden face and said he is sorry , he messed up my save. I first couldnt believe him , what could he have done...
    And than piece by piece of gathering information , i understood that he had fought the froglike basilisks and got cursed over and over again not understanding what he was doing.
    I don't blame him for anything i guess i could have happen do anyone, but now i have a problem:

    How do get rid of my curse with just a brink of my life and enemies everywhere?

    I know theres e undead merchant above in the firelink shrine , but i can't pass he mass of enemies on the way.

    I understood that the update had caused the curse dmg dealed by the frogs not to stack but i can't update my xbox beacause it's not linked to xbox-live.

    I hope my save is not wasted and that someone can find the time to answer.

    Thank you

    Female undead merchant sells them (but at a high price i think) or buy some from oswald in the bell tower for 3000

    Ingward down in New Londo can heal you of your curse but you have to get past a load of ghosts.. at your level/situation not possible i think.. though you can hit the ghosts while you're cursed (thats about the only good thing about it.

    here's a link to the page in the wiki

    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/curse

    hope your game aint ruined permanently, annoying the first playthrough things like this always happen (my friend lost all 20000 of my souls after i beat boss by second bell first time, sucks lol)

    Thank you for the information , but the problem is , i can't up there because there are to many enemies , and with only 1/8 of my life i can't pass them all untill the undead merchant in the firelink shrine without dying.

    okay then try snuggly.. do you have all the cracked orbs from by firelink? you have to drop down an empty shaft of the firelink elevator at the bottom and get them, then go back to the undead asylum and trade with the little birds nest that talks

    My problem is i can't reach the shrine.
    I have the orbs but i die on the way beacause i have 1/8 of my life and that is a one hit kill for every enemy.

    okay.. are you in the depths I'm guessing?

    well the only way for you to heal your curse is to get back to firelink. Just take it really slow and block every attack before returning it. It's the only way to salvage your file :|

    The problem is the butcher who jumpes into the scene from somewhere when i try to go down the way back to entrance of the depths. But i see now that i have no other choice than try it again.
    Although it seems quite not possible to pass him, the dogs , the torch carrying undead...
    Well i shall try

    thank you anyway for your time happy

    that butcher jumps down when you're in the corridor before the stairs leading to the slime/bonfire hall right?

    you can see him he just stands above, bait him down shield up and strafe anticlockwise round him until he misses and attack, then backstab him. repeat or if you can do what i do chain backstab him every time he gets up..

    good luck anyway big grin

    Your best friend is now evasion and dodging, find the path, see which enemies will run you down and which ones will slowly chase after you, it could help to make sure you are at 1/4 your item burden too and roll out of most attacks. Or, you can summon a phantom and tell him to give you escort to the Depths entrance.

    Atleast he got it figured out, now he knows how those 'lvl 1' runners feel.

    It is done now, i'm out of the depth and the curse is gone , it was quite intensive playing but now i'm on my standards again.

    Thank you a lot for everything:)

    thats a learning experience NEVER let your friend play dark souls on your save

    learn from that mistake and if you are stuck why not start a new character and start from scratch? thats what i'd do

    I wanted to show my brother the game when he was visiting so I let him create a new character from the start and told him "let's see how long you go before you die".

    He managed to get the asylum demon down to about half health before he died.

    I had never met the curse stat and i didn't expect anything like this to happen and now thanks to Serious_Much i don't have to start again. Sure , i have learned from this experience , but i believe this could have happen to anyone not knowing the consequences of being cursed.
    Starting over is like...giving up and this game is about not giving up and there are not too many games alike around these times.
    The last game i had this fun was Monster Hunter Freedom on the PSP , then with every new monster hunter the games got easier and easier.
    The new games on the market are nearly beating themselves , finally one you have to chew around a little bit.

    Have you tried to put your shield up and just try making a run for it?

    What soul level are you if you don't mind me asking. It may be easier to just make a new guy.

    Meridam he's fine now..

    I thought that too, that starting a new character would be a waste, but actually, my second character is much much better than my first, better gear, weapons, and style.

    Seriously folks, just have your mates make a new character. I would never, EVER, let any friend of mine play my saves. NEVER.

    Your only choice is to run back to firelink and either buy a purging stone from the undead merchant or take the elevator to the church and run to the belltower right above it buying a stone from the merchant there.
