oh *****s
How can you rekindle this bonfire?
best way to go about lautrec in the next run, save him from his prison cell and then after getting your reward CAREFULLY kick him over the edge, practice kicking the air a few times so you don't accidentally hit him, another tip is sheath your weapon since one tiny punch won't immediately aggro him so long as its under 40
You have to kill Lautrec by using the Black Eye Orb to invade him in the area in Anor Londo near the Ornstein & Smough fog gate, then bring the firekeeper soul he drops to the dead firekeeper under Firelink
The bad news is you'll need to go to Anor Londo to do that.

The good news is you get some really good armor for your trouble. (Dingy Set)
you can skip the capra demon and gaping dragon by using the master key to unlock the door to valley of drakes from new londo ruins and then simply walk across the bridge into blight down, walk down and be very careful of the toxic blow darters, run over to the far side of the swamp and then go into quelaggs domain, you can do this before or after ringing the first bell, just be careful of being too underleveled, this is probably the easiest and fastest way to unlock frampt so you can split titanite and sell items
I accidently did this on my first playthrough and was quelaag was way too difficult and i died a lot
Booooo master key

But in all seriousness, it makes more sense for first timers to go through Depths to get to Blighttown. There's an ember in there they'll need and the enemies/bosses progress more naturally and give enough souls to upgrade and fight Quelaag without being totally intimidated by her.

My first playthrough I started with the master key and did Blighttown first. I was doing 20 damage per sword strike. Took literally 15 minutes to get her to 1/5 health. If you're not pretty good at the game already, and don't have spells or upgraded gear, she's a hell of a boss to start with. Pretty disheartening to do before at least Taurus Demon and Gargoyles imo.
After dying and respawning at the bonfire, I had a really weird explosion effect when I stood up. Does anyone know what that means???
Herpes
If someone else kindles a bonfire in their game, a little explosion will occur at the bonfire in your game and you'll recieve an additional estus flask. Probably just a coincidence that it happened when you stood up.
Can you light a bonfire and without sitting at it homeward bound to the last bonfire I want to know if I can light vamos bonfire without sitting at it and getting stuck.
Yeah you can light it but not rest at it to warp the last "rested at" one
If you don't rest at that bonfire you will not be able to warp to it later and you can work your way back up to Firelink Shrine without warping or using a homeward bone
Going to the Abyss before the Darkroot does not make sense.
This is gonna sound stupid, but... you can't just sprint straight to Four Kings from Firelink?
I think u can :D
Well, no, you absolutely CAN get to the Four Kings and the Abyss before going to Darkroot, but without the ring, you'll die immediately upon enetering the abyss, and since it doesn't carry over to NG+, it's just not possible to fight the 4 kings without fighting sif.
So I found that if I am near a bonfire long enough, the bonfire makes a kindling noise, and then I get +1 estus flask. I left my game on for about an hour and came back to find I have +6. So I guess it's +1 every 10 minutes? I'll check to see if it is just a temporary estus flask buff. I bet the number will return to the normal amount after I die. I'm playing the remastered version on ps4.
No, whenever someone else kindles the bonfire you are near, sometimes that kindling spreads to other players at that bonfire, and gives them a +1 to their flask, max of 20
To add to that, you don't need to be near the bonfire. You just have to be in the same area as someone who kindled a bonfire in their game. You can be right in front of a boss fog and still get extra flasks.
Catacombs has a third bonfire, in the skellyman blacksmith's chamber. It is warpable-to as well as from.
I have reached the third bonfire in Duke's Archives (the one before crystal caves) in Remastered and it is not listed in the warpable bonfires list. Has FROM changed it?
The one on the balcony? That bonfire can definitely be warped to in the Remaster.
If you are sitting at the bonfire you are attempting to warp to, it will not show up in the list. The Duke's Archives bonfire is still in the warpable list.
