I intentionally kept all the coins I found for my hunter to keep after the end of the game. I know it has no effect on the ending, but I imagine our dear protagonist is quite out of sorts when morning comes--having some cash on hand will help them get back on their feet.
Very Shiny. I approve
Should be noted that you can place an infinite amount of these, unlike other soul's games.
I was hoping they maybe made drops more frequent, but sadly no
Good for winding chalices that try to make you go in circles, or do that annoying thing where you fall through the floor into a big room you've already explored
"Or, one could save them until morning, if it ever comes." This encouraged me to not only seek a deeper meaning into the item itself but buy up as many as possible and get the Sacrificial Ending to see if anything would happen concerning them.
Super useful in chalices
Any significance? (Spoiler) Ending 1 let's you wake up from the hunter's dream to a sunrise, perhaps this is referring to an impact in NG+?
Does anyone noticed that the coins are copper gold or a silver coins
I planted some of these coins on the edge of the cliff where the Monocular is found in Cathedral Ward, then went down to the bridge leading into the Tomb of Oedon. I looked up and I could see the coins hovering in mid-air, pretty much directly over the ladder next to the Brick Troll that pushes the flaming boulder at you.
They serve no other function, there's no secret. They just light a path. They're also fun in PvP, they really throw off invadees.
So how do you get the messengers to sell you the coins? They were available to my on my first playthrough but when I made a new character and beat the game the never showed up.
It's not complicated. Mark your trail with them. Super useful in the nightmare boss fight.
how do you use them to light the path?
