Have you ever encountered a Vagrant?
Indeed, at least twice. I'm super familiar with pretty much the entirety of Dark Souls at this point, but anytime I've seen those I've just kind of screamed in surprise. They kind of scare the shit out of me.
Screen of my last encounter with one: http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/454030618391181733/981642742BBEE8F881766DC695124190A07C2887/
Yeah, I completely forgot about it. It was weird at the time. In the church under the bell gargoyles near the altar. It scared the shit out of me since I hadn't been to the Blacksmith's bonfire yet and had never seen one before: which is usually when you die in Dark Souls. It went down pretty easily. I seem to recall it didn't drop anything special.
I was wondering what the hell that thing was!. I was on the rafters in Anor Londo when I saw what looked like a Black Phantom standing on the ledge under the Gwynevere statue. I couldn't really make it out too well from that distance, but I thought it appeared rather crab-like and unlike anything I was familiar with in the game. Once I got a little closer it pulled aggro and walked right off the ledge to its death before I could figure out what the hell happened.
Had no idea these were a thing.
EDIT: After reading about them, I realized that I actually have heard of these things. I remember around launch hearing about the items you drop being moved on to other online players. I guess they were so rare that I just assumed they were never actually implemented and I forgot about them. This is the sort of weird shit @patrickklepek would really appreciate about this game.
Weird, I actually just saw one about 20 minutes ago. It was red and it was on top of the tower in undead burg with the one crossbow sniper. It freaked me out, so I attacked it before I could get a good look at it. The weirdest thing though is the wiki page says it's an online only thing, and I definitely was not online. I had unplugged my ethernet before playing because I wasn't in the mood for being invaded.
Didn't know what it was until just now but yes. I saw one on the terrace running up to the Dragon Bow archers in Anor Londo. I didn't have time to do anything about it. I thought maybe it was a super rare form of the crystal lizards or some weird thing.
It was weird. Only seen it once. No idea evil or good or any of that so I cant answer your poll.
Yeah, he had a bottle of Wild Irish Rose that was basically full, so I backstabbed him for it.
Why is this in the Dark Souls forum btw?
Because its about Dark Souls.
Hey man, some people get dealt a bad hand in life. Don't be judging their souls.
I must be slow tonight. I just got what you meant in your first post. Doh.
I've played through the game at least four times, 200+ hours, have all the achievements, and only just saw one recently in New Londo Ruins. I was sure I was losing my mind because I'd never seen one before. I still don't understand what the heck it is or why it showed up.
JUST PRAISE ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
yes those things drop 20 humanity if you kill them by knocking them off a large height which results in their death becouse of FALL DAMAGE (NOT falling into the dead zone)
the only way to collect the 20 humanity is by ponching yourself in the face as hard as u can while pressing A and moving the analog stick in circles just like mario part 64
Yeah, once! Think it was a red evil one. It appeared in the worst possible place, namely on the bridge with the archers in Anor Londo. Swung my axe, hit it and it fell down into the chasm. Then I got hit by one of the Dragonslayer arrows and plunged to my death too. :(
I've seen a few of them, I think one was in the forest, another was in Duke's Archives, and another on the path leading up to everyone's favorite archer duo. I died by an invader, I think, by the archer duo one. Or I died because I wasn't expecting it to be there....
