The second one, while STILL is in the same area, it's just a big darkened place, you only get to see a giant fog door at a wall, and the ground where I'm standing on because it's certainly very dark. There are no story spoilers there.
So, I will first show the (second) secret/bug that does not contain spoilers (only thing you see in the background is a giant fog door and nothing else, I DON'T even show new weapons or spells or anything):
How to perform a Shield Bash with medium shields (and possibly light too); now this isn't the normal shield bash you do when you equip it in the right hand, that it's an attack, this I'm showing is the a PROPER SHIELD BASH, much like the one BLACK KNIGHTS DO, and will BREAK GUARDS:
I can't confirm if this works whether or not in consoles. This was made in the PC Prepare To Die Edition of Dark Souls.
Text-based guide (no spoilers or anything):
- Equip a Bow in your right hand and a shield in your left hand. 2-hand the bow, and then press L1 or whatever to zoom in the view. Now, DON'T SHOOT, just go to the menu, and go to equipment. There, change your bow for another weapon, immediately when this happens, you will attack with your left hand, in this case a shield, and thus doing a true shield bash, that cannot be done in other way.
Now the other (first) secret is the one that some may considerate spoilers, so, while I don't think it contains spoilers except for showing a new enemy and a very small part of a new area, and some info I wrote that you pretty much have guessed by yourself but oh well. It's a Secret/Hidden Area watch it at your own risk:
So, I discovered an ILLUSORY WALL that leads you to a groups of Humanity Enemies imprisoning Sif the Great Wolf (or the puppy in this case), Sif is shielded by a magic aura from them, when you kill them all, Sif disappears, and a shield is dropped. My game is in Spanish so I don't know the exact name but here is an approximate: Purifying Great Shield (you notice the icon of the shield looks very much like Artorias' Great Shield). You can see it's stats in the video. I consider this a Secret Artorias Shield. So it's 1 for how to find Sif and another for the Secret Shield
When you read the description of the shield, you realize it is Artorias' Shield, and that before facing the Abyss, and realized he was losing his mind, he (before being defeated by the Abyss) enchanted his Shield with a Magic Aura and gave it to Sif to protect him from the Abyss. What a honorable guy:
Here is a translation of the Shield's description by me:
"Great Shield made of steel used by the Knight Artorias, who succumb to the Abyss.
Artorias, deeply marked by the Abyss, used it to create a Magic Barrier to protect Sif, his arms-comrade. This dried the shield (referring to the Shield's Magic), that still keeps his great magic resistance."
