Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

After the first boss, you enter a new level (Firelink Shrine) and there is a knight sitting on a log nearby. I attacked this knight a few times and that apparently made him mad, so he killed me.

Now this guy is ridiculous strong, so I figured I'll just respawn and leave him alone this time. Apparently this guy REALLY hates my guts though because every time I respawn he immediately begins attacking me. 3 hits later, I'm dead and have to respawn. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. I realize Dark Souls is known for its difficulty, but infinite dying at a checkpoint is kinda lame.

I have tried reloading my save point, but that didn't seem to help. I'd rather not start over, if at all possible.

Here is a screenshot of the guy if that helps. enter image description here

NOTE

I found a cliff and got him to roll off the edge and die. I'm not sure if this is the only option though.

Unfortunately, there's no way of resetting the Crestfallen Warrior (short of starting over) after he's become hostile. See below for a way to actually calm him down. (I forgot all about Oswald!)

However, you are not penalized in any way for killing him/causing him to die. According to the Wikidot:

Be wary about accidentally making him hostile the first time you meet him, as he'll attack you as soon as you respawn at the bonfire.

It goes on to say:

As he doesn't drop any item nor does he have any effect on other NPC's story, you don't need to worry about killing him by kicking him off cliff as his "full reward" is only his souls.

Which is to say, there are no penalties for killing him, and you can snag a quick 1000 souls in the process!

You can pay Oswald of Carim in the Bell Tower to absolve your sins. It will cost 500 times your soul level to absolve your sins, but it will reset all angry NPCs to neutral.

a quick method of dispatching the Crestfallen Warrior is derived from his pretty slow attacks, try parrying and reposting his attacks while dodging his by rolling you can also circle him with minor difficulty and then backstab him... these techniques come in VERY handy for most small enemies in the game so this battle is a good training ground for your Parry/Repostes and your backstabs just remember your can always retrieve your souls before he kills you and you wont lose a thing providing that you are hollowed

hope this helps :)

oh and another little tip, at low levels try not to attack NPC's although they look helpless and pathetic (most of them) they are hard as nails to defeat haha

This guy's ringmail makes him a little annoying. I would say that if you're not even strong enough to defeat him (he is perhaps the weakest NPC in the game) then you're probably safe to restart your game.

Just roll off the hill and he should follow you to his and your death.

Does he not respawn if we both die? –  Batophobia Apr 1 at 0:35
