A promotional DLC is happening in chest in Majula's Mansion basement with promotional items. Its respawns and closes every week until launch day of DLC. Follow the link to the items that appeared inside the chest (In English and Portuguese). This promised in the launch day of DLC the FROM SOFTWARE will put a secret item in the chest. I advise hitting the chest first, since it is rumored that the chest can handle a mimic.

Huh, this is...odd. Don't know if this is a good idea, given the nature of Dark Souls 2. Having timed extra items just seems wrong somehow.

It's not like the chest has anything remotely useful, though.

My main concern is just that secret item. I just hope it's something cosmetic rather than a real game changer.

Lol, I have a hundred or so ascetics from all the runs at Darkie :)

Agreed, this is really lame. Atlus world tendency events were actually meaningful. It was either play offline for a good long while or WT event.

They should give us dual ancient dragons. Or 10 dragonriders. Or something. And a cool hat to show off for it :)

Or free arena matches. Those would bring a few people back. Or free invasions?

Something meaningful.

Petrified Something and Twinkling Titanite are genuinely useful. Also, the thought they they would one week just have the chest be a mimic is hilarious.

Cheap shot! It isn't about free stuff. It is about do they know how to keep a community energized and interested. And from what I see in the list above there is a lot for them to learn.

I had no idea about the chest, but it looks like I already missed several half of them. I assume the thing on July 22 will open up the path to the new DLC.

Actually would be funnier if it was some kind of surprise Mimic boss that immediately wipes the floor with you, but you're probably right.

And yeah, I was going to say "man what great timing for me to be getting into Dark Souls 2, but most of this is over. Also not like it's entirely unique stuff or anything, but still...

Also, Amazing Chest Ahead!

I only learned of this just recently, wish I had gotten the twinkling titanite. The ascetics aren't bad either.

Aside from the last thing this is all super pointless.

Can anyone confirm what the item from the 22nd was? I checked after then and all i got was an Ascetic?

Yeah I am glad I found out about this after the good items are no longer there. How you guys can bitch about 3 petrified something and 2 twinkling is beyond me. That said something is better than nothing so I will loot the heck out of it.

I am curious if it will be a mimic on the 22nd though. Imagine newbies to the game going in there and instead of being one of those seeds it is a mimic and they get one shot killed. Laughs will be had.

@karkarov: I feel like that's a Miyazaki move, there's not nearly enough dev trolling in Dark Souls 2. Or rather the trolls just aren't as clever as the previous games.
