      Okay, big man, here is my suggestion: I won't let myself be killed, because nobody wants me to become a hollow and you are now finally forging the Balder Swag Sword on your anvil!

        I didn't mean to swing my Black Knight Halberd at him, I actually thought I'd accidentally one-hit him but no. He's a real tough fella. I'll go speak to that one sketchy dude so I can request absolution. Love ya Andre. <3

          It's my first playthrough of dark souls and I decided to attempt getting every item and I don't want to kill Andre is there any way to get the hammer otherwise

            Toughest character in DS1.
            I stayed with no reaction for about 5 seconds because it really caught me off-guard, like a fool wanting to "taking the candy from a baby" and the baby turning out to have a gorilla punch. XD

              is there anyway to revive him that won't get me banned online? it's really *****ed up that this one guy deals with 95% of all the embers in the game, why does rickert even exist, seriously, just to sell you the repair box?

                  I went back form Anor Londo (Pre Ornstien and Smough) to upgrade something to plus 10 and litteraly out of nowhere I pissed off Andre for no reason he just started attacking me for no reason

                    Shana_Cayde: i regret killing him too, but he wouldn't accept a bonfire respawn as a form of "i made a mistake please forgive me sempai". I'm only glad that i bought all his key items before accidentally (purposefully because he wouldn't calm down) killing him. I'm just hoping there is some miraculous way of bringing him back without NG.

                      Not completely sure but, he has unique dialogue if you afk while in his menu. He says something about if you went hollow.

                        "I'm just an old smith, I would give my left arm for a gem like that (Very Large Ember)" I felt like an ass when I killed him in the first NG cycle for his weapon.

                          I smoked him in the head accidentally and now he's out for blood. Reeeaally hoping he forgets after a while lmfao

                            There seems to be a glitch where he randomly disappears from the Undead Parish. This might be a purposeful game mechanic, but he came back after I reloaded the game so I doubt it (and I had also never seen it happen in my previous 230 hours of playing). I'm playing on the Switch version, if that helps understand the problem.

                              Dear God! I accidentally killed him early on and now I can’t kill the boss in Anor Londo because I can only get a 5+ zwiehander! Is there any other way to get a 10+ weapon to give it a lightning enchantment?
