I'm not *** but..
Fun fact: Andre actually comments on it if you dark hand him
This was senator armstrong back in ds1
*home depot theme intensifies*
I’m so glad he tears my chest open with his bare hands in Elden Ring
pls help i accidentally hitted him and i need to calm him down
Andre died after I beat the butterfly boss, what can I do to get him back? Or do I need another blacksmith?
I always get bricked up when i imagine him pounding me with his BIG hammer.
If you are buying something with him and just head out he will ask where you're going thinking that you've gone hollow
My question is: How come Andre doesn’t disappear when he dies, unlike other NPCs who DO die? He just flat-out falls on the ground & moves like a rag doll.
This is what peak performance looks like.
Good boi, especially when you give him embers. Can make your weapons extra thicc
I love this guy!
I think he is secretly everyone's favourite character.
How is the toughest blacksmith to kill the one that doesn’t even use weapons?
ok so I accidently attacked him do I have to kill him?
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!
What a nice guy :)
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
i just accidently hitted him, and i dont know how to un agro him, time to replay all again *CRies*
has a blacksmith hammer yet will punch and dropkick the everloving **** out of you if you mess with him.
Prithee be careful....
amazing chest ahead
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 accidentally aggro'd both him and oswald and had to deal with them, i have a +5 divine uchigatana 26 faith and sunbro miracles is the anor londo boss gonna be impossible?
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.
"Now let's compare his hand to size of my head! Andre the-" *Died*
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?
Check the weapon he is smithing. Asshole, I've been trying to farm that for two hours!! Give me that or at least sell it!
This is old news, but I'm surprised it's still not listed here. In early drafts for Dark Souls, Andre was scripted to be Gwyn's firstborn, until they came up with the story of betrayal and instead relegated him to the role of a mere blacksmith of Astora. Perhaps that explains his... unique character model, which happens to bear some semblance to Gwyn.
I'm in bromance with this guy,he's so helpful
if i kill this andre,how i can revive him?
what about that one dead andre looking corpse after the moonlight butterfly
It seems that he is the only NPC in the entire game with lip sync...
I've been confused on how to get to him from fire link shrine. Can anyone guide me on how to?
