    Red Dragon Glitch!!


    Ok so I stumbled across a nice/horrible glitch about 10 minutes ago, basically I killed the big Red Dragon on the bridge with 1 arrow :stare:

    What happened is; (I have already got the sword from shooting the tail) after I went across the underside of the bridge with the dragon above you, I went through the room with the 3 rats in it and climb the ladder. Went straight up the steps in the tower to encounter the Black Knight, killed it and then went to the top.

    From the top you can see the back of the Dragon so I shot it, it then jumped forward and disappeared like it was just too far for the character/game to see if you know what I mean.

    I then got 10,000 souls and the dragon is not there any more....
    I didn't get an item or anything and I'm just wondering if anyone else has encountered this and if I have missed a valuable item?

    Don't worry

    I got the official guide by Future press. It says, the only thing HellKite Dragon drops is Drakes sword (need to cut the tail). So don't worry.

    Happened the same thing BUT not a single shot shot was fired by me!!! And yeah, according to the official guide Drakes sword is the only item drop.

    Ok so what happened with the Red dragon in my game is that while I was doing the easy 300 souls-in 30 seconds exploit (with the shortcut ladder already active), I was on my 15th run (after bonfiring) and for some reason the dragon was walking on the bridge and going berserk. And as soon as he breathed fire out of his mouth, he either killed himself OR got hit by ONE bolt (lmost the same as yours) by one of the 2 crossbowers. And there went my easy 10,000 souls lol. God for me too coz I already got the Drake sword so I knew for sure that I did not miss anything with its untimely demise .

    Try quitting and then reloading your game and see if its orb appears for you to pick up the sword. I know it's a long shot but hey, who knows???

    300 souls is basically just let the dragon breath fire from the monster in the bridge then go down to the bonfire near the beginning then repeat it.. hope this actually helps..

    Yeah what zero21 said

    But to be more specific: what you wanna do is start at the undead berg bonfire then run upstairs. Instead of making a left towards the undead parish shortcut, head straight up the stairs infront of you and then bait yourself until the dragon breathes out fire. You get easy 300 souls. Now the tricky part is keeping the process at or under 30 seconds.

    You can either ran as quick back down the stairs as you can OR run to the farthest right corner of the guardrails. If you have high enough vitality, you wont have to worry about these as you can just let yourself burn and then get up and run down the stairs. SOmetimes enemies will converge by the stairs so you have no choice but to be roasted with them.

    Sprint back down to the bonfire and rinse and repeat.

    Yea, about that.... I'm already about 10 hours past reloading my game and hoping it'll pop up.

    As long as there is NG+, I don't mind. If not......

    This exact thing just happened to me last night...

    I broke the tail a day earlier and later thought i would go buy arrows to try and kill it... i shot a few arrows at it but the dragon took VERY little damage so i just moved onto bigger and better things... later after i killed a boss or two and unlocked the basement and ran around down there for a while i came back up and the dragon fell from his perch and dropped 10k in souls... i then killed the 5 enemies on the bridge and went to the bonfire that the dragon was protecting (there was nothing else that the dragon was protecting so maybe he is meant to just bleed out after a few shots???).

    anyway... kinda a blessing and a curse because now i cant go back and kick its butt using skill... but on the flip side i got a good amount of souls for virtually nothing and now i don't HAVE to go back and kill it, lol...
