      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?

            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.

                "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?

                        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.
