I ended up with two DIFFERENT estus flasks (+2 and +7). Will this break my game?

  • I ended up with two DIFFERENT estus flasks (+2 and +7). Will this break my game? Amy

    Does anyone have any info about what this will do to the game and the best way to handle it? I found it in the chest at Firelink Shine where you're supposed to get back important dropped items. I opened the chest out of curiosity and it doesn't tell you what you're about to pick up (it just says "loot chest?" or something). The item was estus flask +7 which I NEVER DROPPED. (But I did have temporarily for about 5 min)

    I used a game save editor to try and improve my survival. I gave myself a set of slightly better armor (Gold-Hemmed Black set) a better weapon (Ghost Blade) and a fire keeper soul (intending to upgrade flask later). After reading that cheating fire keeper souls messes up your game, I went back to the editor and replaced the soul with something generic. I hadn't read anything about cheating in a better flask causing problems with this editor, so I just went ahead and replaced my full +1 flask with a +7 flask. Then I discovered I could not pick up items. I changed the flask back to a +1 and everything worked fine again. (playing the game, I upgraded the +1 to a +2 the normal non-cheating way) ...But just now I picked up the +7 flask out of that magic recovery chest by accident. Now I have two in my inventory and they both filled at a bonfire. Google is not helping, using "2" or "two" (flasks) gives me results for "dark souls II" instead. Other searches bring up the concept of how many refills you have. I dropped a random item and was able to pick it up. Does that mean I'm fine? Is there a way to make sure I do NOT have the "can't pick up items/keys" glitch?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Of course there is no way to know 100% that your save game is not corrupted after modifying a savegame, but I have had multiple Estus after modding my save multiple times and never have had a problem with it.

    It is to note that the game considers different Estus to be different items from one another. When you upgrade your estus, your +1 estus gets deleted and it loads a +2 estus in its place. This explains how it is possible to have two at the same time.

  • I found a Fire Keeper Soul in Undead Parish. Later, I went back to Firelink Bonfire, and a NPC offered me to upgrade my Estus Flask in exchange of the Fire Keeper Soul. I didn't pay attention, and accepted. Now, I can see a +1 sign near my Estus Flask and it seems to give back somewhat more health. So do the Fire Keeper Soul item have other uses? Are they better or worse than upgrading the Estus Flask? How many time can I upgrade the flask, and how much do each upgrade change the HP regeneration?

  • I have noticed while playing that sometimes there is a loud cracking noise and my character glows white, after which I get an additional Estus Flask. Why is this happening? Is it related to being near areas where there are bosses? Example: I idled right before the entrance to the Gaping Dragon boss fight. During that time, I gained two Estus Flasks for a total of 12. Another time I was fighting one of the knights in the Undead Burg church below the Bell Gargoyle area when this happened.

  • In Dark Souls, the undead can replenish their health by drinking from an Estus Flask (an undead favourite). I assume these are dull, green, flasks which contain something called Estus. What is Estus? What is the lore behind Estus? Please annotate any potential spoilers.

  • Since I'm a sucker for mystery gifts in Dark Souls, I chose the "Petrified Something" as my starting gift. Knowing what I knew about the Old Witch's Ring in Dark Souls, I figured that the item's usefulness (if it had any at all) wouldn't become apparent until much later in the game. Imagine my surprise, then, when I came across the birds' nest in the tutorial area that enticingly asked me... starting gift only minutes into the game, it makes me curious if I've now missed out on anything else I could've used it for instead. Does the Petrified Something have any other uses than to trade
