    I own the New Londo Ruins!

    Post by Gazman0169 on Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:44 pm

    This morning I decided to revisit the lower levels of New Londo to do a spot of farming, and this time around after only my eighteenth run through I finally managed to blag myself a slab! Up until this point I had all but given up hope of ever seeing one, outside of the Stray Demon drop, and so the elation I felt when all of my hours of trying finally paid off was pretty overwhelming I can tell ya. big grin

    Now if I can just blag myself five more, I'll be one very happy little demon hunter! twisted

    "Umbasa!" cheers

    Awesome feeling. happy

    I have had two Darkwraiths drop a slab for me.

    Have had FOUR white slabs drop from the pinwheels!

    Never had a red or blue slab drop, (have never once killed a butterfly in the crystal caves though, so that last one is no surprise).

    It's very rare, and so you have to be prepared to stick with it.

    I've had a DW drop me a slab on a finished build that had zero use for it. It dropped while I was making first and only run to the 4 Kings. It's a bad feeling, trust me. Also, the Siegmeyer questline, if you do it properly, gets you a slab.

    If you're looking for slabs, and haven't done that yet, I recommend you go to the Great Hollow and kill the 10 geckos there. I've gotten as many as 3 slabs in a single playthrough from there. Always make the detour to the GH for the geckos, it's worth it!

    Ten geckos! There are ten geckos in the Great Hollow?! I knew there were some but I didn't know there were ten. I've only managed to get one or two. Fact is I'm hopeless when it comes to getting these things, just not quick enough and I'm usually too busy trying not to fall off the tree branches and getting cursed by the basilisks to worry about geckos. Of course that's the difference between an average player like me and a great player.

    Bah, the trick is just to quit and load a lot! Gecko got away? Quit and load! They don't always appear, but when you know where they're supposed to be, just quit and load until they appear. You'll get all 10, eventually, this way.

    gecko locations:
    There's a guide on the wiki, and videos on youtube (helps greatly!), but I'll list the gecko locations roughly:

    From the bonfire at the top of the Great Hollow, look toward the inside of the tree. On your left is a branch going down, and on your right is a drop. Fall down the right onto the branch bellow, and walk up that branch. If you go all the way up the branch and fall to the ledge bellow, you'll reach a tunnel. There's one gecko at the mouth of this tunnel, and another at the end of it. Kill the 2 geckos and make your way back to the bonfire (you can homeward bone).

    Drop down to the right and head up the branch again. Part of the way up the branch, you'll encounter another ledge. Drop onto it to find 1 gecko there. Go down the tunnel to find another gecko in it, and at the end of the tunnel you reach a platform with 3 geckos (one on each side and one in the center). Bellow this platform are the basilisks. Kill the 5 geckos, then drop off the platform on the left side to fall on a branch. Go up the branch and you'll exit the basilisk room, then go up the branch on the left. This branch, at its top end, is joined with another one that heads up in the other direction. Stand where these branches meet and quit/load, and a gecko will appear on the branch you took up from the basilisk room. Now you've killed 8 of the 10 geckos.

    Now you need to head a ways down into the great hollow. I can't explain exactly where they are (I just know it when I see it...), but the last 2 geckos are on the same platform, a few branches and platforms lower than the basilisk room. If you spot one, go stand on that platform and quit/load until you manage to kill both.

    Chances are you got at least 1 slab if you did all this!

    Oh yeah! Two in Two days! I blagged another this morning. big grin

    Afternoon BLA1NE, thanks for the tip, but I'd prefer not to return to the Hollow anytime soon, on the count that I keep falling to my death every time I venture there. :evil:
