    Four Kings and a blue drake?

    Post by bunnywink on Wed Jul 25, 2012 1:27 am

    Ummm... So I was playing in New Londo Ruins tonight and got summoned to fight the Four Kings. When we dropped into the Abyss, there was a frozen blue drake there. We were so distracted checking it out that we all died pretty quickly, because... you know... priorities!



    Must be a glitch, right? I took a quick photo with my phone as I was dying!

    Has anybody encountered any bizarre glitches as of late?

    That's a pretty freaky glitch.

    Were you able to hurt the drake at all?

    We tried hitting it, but it didn't do any damage (or move). It was weird.

    I remember someone mentioning this glitch before. Maybe the drake fell into the Abyss from the Valley of Drakes?

    Yeah, that's probably what had happened!

    I was in Anor Londo yesterday as well and one of the BK Archers had fallen into the walls. But we were still able to jab at him and kill him.

    We weren't able to hurt the drake at all. Maybe because it can't traverse the Abyss and died/froze when it fell... What a strange night I had yesterday.

    Well apparently he had it on, otherwise he would've fell through the abyss and the players weren't able to see him winking

    Maybe there is some lore to this occurance. Anybody care to weave us a story?

    Although I've never seen nor heard of a Drake winding up in the Abyss, I've noticed that in co-op, you can almost always hear the sounds of a Drake moving around (the loud steps) when you approach the Four Kings fog gate. You can also hear it standing near Beatrice's summon sign.

    I'm fairly certain you cannot hear it if you are playing solo, and no amount of noise making in that area will catch their attention. This means that some bug in co-op must somehow cause one to aggro, or start moving around. Whichever drake that does that is probably the one that managed to clip through the floor.

    It's cool you managed to get a picture.

    Hmmm, now that you mention it, I always did wonder what that loud noise was. I do a lot of co-op in New Londo Ruins and I have noticed that noise every single time, but I always thought it was something below (and too lazy to investigate).

    The head makes me think of the Bridge Wyvern more actually. Then again, I haven't looked that closely at the Drakes before.

    I wish I had gotten a better picture. It was... planking, for lack of a better word. Like, the drake's neck was extended forward with the spine and tail aligned in a straight line. If I recall correctly, the blue drakes go into that stance when firing off one of their lightening blasts?

    It was much smaller than the bridge wyvern though. Again, I wish I had gotten a better picture for scaling purposes.

    Stupid thing, doesn't it know owling is all the rage three months ago? I'm not in tune with hipster news sadly, so I'm stuck in the past with my knowledge. But not as badly as that thing! Drake/Wyvern!

    Co-op in general makes most monsters act funny. For example, the Hellkite Wyrm. Typically if you aggro him by standing in the safezone across the bridge from the stairs that lead down to the shortcut to the bonfire in Undead Burg, he will fly down and shoot fire forward.

    He always does this, I've snuck by him hundreds of times and he has never once altered his strategy. Yet when I was playing with my friend he suddenly changed strategies and was flying around spitting fire downwards, and he even turned around and spit fire into the bonfire area behind him. He did that for well over 5 minutes and almost into 10. But eventually he flew off.

    I don't know what it is, maybe the developers were trying to make monsters change their strategy to suit the increased number of opponents. Either way, it really does make some funny things happen with the creatures. I should actually take the time to run a solo and co-op separately and try to aggro monsters in various ways to see how they react. Sounds pointless I know, but when you've done pretty much everything you tend to find ways to entertain yourself lol.

    In co-op, I've had Darkwraith Warriors fall down there with me, instantly dying. I once fought the 4 kings with 3 corpses in the pit.

    The worst one is the one where the Four Kings spawn after you die...At the bonfire you were resting at. My poor Crestfallen warrior.

    AHAHA! Really?
    That sounds like a -really- fun bug to replicate... a fight with the 4 kings throughout all of lordran.

    Everyone died as one of the kings was about to spawn. I've never managed to duplicate it though.

    Tolvo, that must've been really chaotic. Did you end up killing them in Firelink?
