    Well I just had the most bullshit death in history. I'm in Sen's fortress looking around and I find a chest so I go open it and its a mimic. It killed me in 1 hit. I lost 10000 souls
    That happens to us all. At least that will teach you to poke each chest just to make sure its not going to nom your face off when you open it.

    Edit: Oh hello Pageking. I have content for once.



    I have so much Dark Souls stuff lately...

    I suggested a friend of mine to buy this game, he is a pretty good player but it is so much fun to watch him play the game. I went to him several times giving him a few hints and such.

    He died to the mimic in Sen's Fortress, although he had some great luck, he gets really rare drops and he killed the Iron Golem so fast by throwing him down, I did not know that that was possible. At first I thought that it had glichted but it is a real animation.

    Better than leaving it there, I guess.

    Edited:

    It was really useful for making SL 120 PvP toons though.

    Bottomless box was mostly used for Ps3.
    Xbox had a program on the pc to make your own character with any limit of stats and all the equipment you would need.

    They used a USB for a darksouls save and chucked it on the pc while using the program....So in a way the bottomless box is useless even if they left it in pc version.

    Ps3 could do it aswell but more time consuming since you had to take out a laptop Hard drive instead of a plug in plug out usb in 10 seconds.

    Those are the worst. I wish there was a way to store souls but then the game would be easy and did anyone else freak out when they saw Frampt?

    my worst death was this:


    You know how you have to use the curses to fight the ghosts in New Londo Ruins? While on my New game+, I had taken the curse, but had to do something IRL. I just stayed on the ladder while I was away from the controller. When I come back, my curse had worn off, but I didn't notice. So, I go and try to fight some of the ghosts and end up getting damaged and unable to defend myself. I am now running away with my inventory up trying to get to the curse (I didn't have it in my Dpad thing). As you can imagine, I fall to my death.

    Not so bad I guess, I can just go and get my souls/humanities back right? Maybe if I wasn't retarded.


    On my way back I forget to apply the curse AGAIN and I AGAIN am running with the inventory up trying to get to the curse. Then, I fall again. There goes 90k souls and several humanity :(

    I was going from Sen's to Anor Londo to lightning up some of my weapons. Was previously farming for souls in Darkroot before heading up to Sen's right above it.

    FYI you can store small amounts of souls using dungpies. You can buy them for 200 souls and you can "sell" them to frampt for 200 souls.

    Also a good reason to store up on souls is to save them for expensive bulk purchases like spell buying or simply so that if you are ever just short of being able to buy something you don't have to bother grinding.

    Has there been any word of a pre-load? 8gb takes me about 10-18 hours to download depending on how moody my connection is. Would like to get it ready before the game is out.

    Also just curious wouldn't it be possible to get permanently stuck in the abyss if you used that bonfire before you acquire the lordvessel. As it is possible to kill four kings before getting the lordvessel this should be possible.

    Maybe Kaathe just brings you back to the Kiln prematurely?

    I don't really know to be honest.

    Even if you got brought to the kiln you would be stuck in the kiln instead of the abyss not really changing the situation.

    No, you'll get the warp option if you kill the Four Kings in the Abyss even before getting the Lordvessel.

    You can also use a Lloyd's Talisman around mimics and it'll turn them into regular chests. I'm not sure if it works if you've already attacked them though...

    It does, you can actually stock up on them and keep hitting the chests with a weak weapon and use the talismans over and over to grind for the symbol of avarice.

    What does avarice even mean? Greed? Hunger? Insatiable?

    Does grinding L and R triggers when you're grappled help at all?
    I've noticed a difference between doing it and not doing it, with the most notable sign being that my character is immediately on their feet once it ends and not flat on the ground.

    I love how dark souls gives you a classic rpg feel in those kinds of things. I mean, "you gotta check the chest's chain!" Or "you gotta use divine weapons to kill the skeletons!" Really nostalgic stuff.

    I usually just attack every chest I see. If it's a Mimic, I got the first shot. If it's a chest, no harm done.

    Edited:

    No harm aside from feeling kind of silly that you just thwacked an inanimate object as hard as you could, I mean.

    Going to try keyboard and mouse controls first. Judging from the manual they don't seem all that bad.

    I'll definitely record a video of me playing through to at least the Firelink Shrine with keyboard controls. Depending on how people like it, I might do a whole Let's Play.
