        Séria muito bom se essa se dessa alma pudesse ser feita alguma magia Dark, como os espectros vermelho que ele usa na batalha.

          judging by the game title "Dark Souls" i bet the title told us about the story of many dark soul bearer. then it mean every pygmy descendants have a fragment of lord soul named the first dark soul. then come gael looking for blood which born from dark soul around the world till nothing place left but the ringed city which located at the end of the world. gael manage to slaughter everyone and grow stronger for every dark soul he consumed. he literally manage to collect every dark soul existed and he didnt realize that he actually combine every dark soul to become a dark soul which close to comparable with first dark soul acquired by ancient furtive pygmy. thus explained why gael so immensely strong despite his background which no more than ordinary slave knight. although burdened with dark souls and he still have a sanity albeit a little mad for him slaughtering every human in the world for the sake of hope for new paint world free of curse. then the ashen one came from the past with the help of fillianore artifact, the the ashen one kill him then take gael blood and soul. and give the blood of the dark soul to the painter to crate a new world named yhaurname...maybe. so dark souls is actually a humanity! when we play dark souls 1 if we play players or humanoid npc we got humanity. and if we kill a lot of hollow (accumulated around 20 iirc) we got one humanity. from this i take conclusion that if furtive pygmy descendant have enough souls then automatically it form a new humanity in their body, it happen the same with gael, gael is same with player which originated as no one and become stronger with enough strength and formed humanity. but ashen one is different, they are nothing but ash, they dont go hollow when they dead because they have no humanity in them. unkindled is nothing more than gwyn's desperate last measure to prolong the first flame, they formed from waste of flame wether it from 3 lord soul descendant or from pygmy dark soul descendant(remember that dark soul is actuallly from flame) that explained why there is unkindled with huge body like gundyr and there is a furtive like ashen one. since the game titled dark souls so we play as furtive. eventho they have different posture but still both of them the same essence and that is an ash. and both of them is nothing more than pawn in the gwyn's grand scheme. so thats why firekeeper always support us and told us to become heir of fire. if we chose link fire ending then firekeeper accomplished her job. if we chose end of fire ending then fire keeper said that ashen one should keep secret his grand betrayal(betraying ashen one very purpose which is a pawn for gwyn's scheme to link fire). but despite that fire keeper choose to walk together in their traitorous path. firekeeper have some affection because of the times they spend together or maybe firekeeper felt sympathy after seeing hoe hard ashen one struggle. or maybe both. if ashennone choose usurpation, then ashen one must absorb dark sigil which transformed them to become an undead with humanity, they become hollow if they dead. only after ashen one become proper descendant of furtive pygmy and after ashen one have dark soul that they qualify as lord of hollows thus gain support from kaathe and sable church the true loyalist suporter of pygmy race. oops never realize that i type a wall of words. its a waste to delete all of this so i left it here. feel free to critics, i'm happy to hear any kind of souls theory

            Guys, guys. The Dark soul is in the Blood, not Gael's soul. You give it to the painter so she can paint a world with the dark soul. That's the whole point of the DLCs. And its awesome!

              The great sword is good but if your trying to get weapons that are good for PvP then go with the crossbow

                sore fool, he has the dark soul in him, all along, but only at the end of times when facing the protagonist, he finally released that "THE POWA WAS IN YOU ALL ALONG))))))))" (dark souls is it). Bleh.

                    Anyone wonder why there is a Painting Guardian protecting Fillianore? Maybe she is the one that keeps the painted world of Dark Souls afloat...and why stuff gets dire in the end

                      Is there a reason everyone is so upset with the fact Gael is the final boss, Everyone is like ¨Oh we just met him bad boss¨ news flash, every other boss in the game was new also, we had newer seen them before yet they are good fights. What about Friede and ariandel, never seen before the dlc yet for some reason everyone's fine with that boss. Okay I do understand that this is the last boss for the souls series but hell miyazaki started to run out of ideas after Dark Souls 1. It´s pretty clear in this game. So just let the series be done already.

                        It's possible to get Gael stuck in a pillar, I pulled it off with another person however we put Gael into his second phase just a few seconds after.

                          I really hate that all you get out of it are strictly pvp weapons. I hate that kind of pandering bullshit.

                            Just so you know. If you give gaels soul to the painter in the ariandel chapel after beating frieder; she has more dialogue. Not sure what happens after that but if anyone wants to persue that further be my guest

                              The Cosmos OF COURSE! What if the whole world of Dark Souls is another universe's painting? What is the conclusion? Infinite creation? Is then Bloodborne the world that was painted using the Dark Soul?

                                is there Anyone who's consumed the soul, instead of transposing it? does it change anything, seeing as his soul is most close to the Dark Soul?

                                  Anyone know what the sword Gael has in the Ashes DLC is called? I've seen people with it but can't find it.
