    Quite a few people have seen them. I've only seen one, and that was while I was sunbroing. I killed the thing before the host even saw it (sorry, host!), because I didn't want it to get away. In my case, it looked more like a sphere with legs than a crab. It died in one hit.

    Youtube them. Seen a few vids showing them. They are basicly crab like, at least the ones I've seen on there. Haven't run into any myself. guess that means I'm not lucky or that people recover their lost souls quickly....or don't drop things really.

    My understanding is that the spheres are generally harmless but tend to run away, while the crabs will attack with soul arrows. Neither are "friendly," per se.

    Seen it three times now, two of the red type and recently a good type while offline. Not sure what I did but was neat.

    If it's red and crablike it will fight, if it's small and egglike it will try to run away and I think go underground like the lizards, at least that's what the one I saw looked like it was trying to do.

    Where did you see the two red types at?

    I killed one in parish near rhea, I could not really see how it was because it was doing damage to Rhea, but I remember it was yellow and looks like a crab

    First one was in the parish by the firekeeper soul, second one I think was in the same area. I don't fully recall I just blew it away without thinking about it ._.

    I recall a theory that they had set spawn points and a list of them somewhere, don't know if it's true but I've read 2-3 posts about people finding one at the firekeeper soul there.

    Someone said that if you drop an item you can make vagrants after dying but I'm not sure

    If it's true that they spawn from either a players bloodstain being in a spot for too long or if a dropped item is, by the keepers soul would make sense do to the iron knight waiting for any unlucky adventures there. They might die, unable to recover their souls and bingo, spawns.

    Maybe, I haven't kept tabs on it much but it really comes off as a great mystery that has yet to be fully resreached on.

    I tend to recover my bloodstain all the time and if I have no use for something it gets dropped. That's all I've encounted, never even seen a drift item.

    Try to drop an item in some hotspot, use 3 humanity, use one to turn human, and die. Don't get the bloodstain back, then after a time check to see what happens

    You know, I would say the forest would be a good place to maybe find one with all the hunter (players of the cov) killing off other players...but the bloodstains are easy and quick to recover.

    Actually, the parish by rhea and the soul, I'd wager that would be the perfect testing spot with the sightings. I'd also like to see offline testing, would be interesting if the conditions change any.

    Ugh I'm having nightmares all over again. Thanks for making me relive my FFXI days ._.; If no one messes with it I'll try and cobble some data during or after the way, but honestly I don't know. They come off as beyond stupidly random in my eyes.

    I havent seen vagrants in my game. and when i drop items im usually near the bonfire or at a blacksmith. for some reason thats the only time i usually manage my inventory and not when your in the open where enemies might kill you.

    And that probably what most people do too why you we dont get to see them often.

    I saw an unaggroed one in a hosts world when I invaded them in the forest. I immediately thought "Hmm... so that's what they look like."
