    That is crazy. Do you kill all of them in the great hollow? I am 90+% sure that it is an automatic drop.

    ....unless I am the luckiest player the game has ever seen. Because I go kill them on EVERY playthrough, (dozens by now), just to "get the slab". It has never not dropped for me.

    I've not seen people get slab drops from the lizards, although it is possible. You're just the luckiest DkS player in history.

    Lextune, that's how I thought... Until I killed them all last time, I didn't get one slab. =[

    I've never gotten a slab from the lizards. I wasn't even sure they could drop slabs ._.

    Really? Does that apply to mimics as well? Will they drop their headpiece? You can drag Solaire down to the mimic with Havel's Armor.

    That would be quite convenient, but wouldn't that mimic just drop the occult club?

    I wonder if you can lure him into fighting crystal lizards. That'd be the biggest farming exploit in the game. I'D HAVE SLABS GALORE! twisted

    If you hit a mimic with a Lloyd's talisman it will de-aggro, if you aggro'd it, and allow you to loot it without engaging. After you kill it you have a chance of getting another drop. I just got 2/4 in Anor Londo with 173 item discovery. The drop rate seems to increase if you do it that way. Supposedly, it will occasionally allow you to loot it twice with the Lloyd's trick. But, I lost interest in trying after a while.

    edit: I just tried it in Duke's Archives... it worked! Hit it with Lloyd's, then hit it with a fist or catalyst (so you can do it several times without killing it) and hit it with Lloyd's again. You have to let it stand, though, so be careful.

    Probably common knowledge for anyone...
    The boar near the church doesn't have armor on it's a**. Probably because of that, it can be backstabbed.

    About Solaire killing things for 100% drop rates, just tested it on the channeler in the depths, nothing happened.

    You aren't lucky you are just mistaken.

    Crystal Lizards outside of the Great Hollow CANNOT drop titanite Slabs at all. Zero percent chance.

    I'm surprised i don't use this topic more often. Apparently i know a lot in this game. :|

    Or maybe i just never learn...

    Either way, i just found out that the Dragon Tooth can be buffed.

    . The Great Hallow lizards giving out 3 in one run is generous but nowhere near impossible.

    Your mistaken or lying about the slab in the burg

    Someone provide a video or screenshot of it and I'll eat my hat.

    No really, they CAN drop them. I've gotten a slab from the Darkroot Garden one... so... Yeah, that is all.

    Undead Warriors can drop slabs too! Totally saw it once!! Promise I'm not lying with all my hearts!!!

    But seriously, it seems a little odd that this is the first time I'm ever hearing of this and I've never seen one personally after killing every crystal lizard I ever saw. I'm too lazy to farm Twinkling so I always go after them.

    But if you guys are super cereal then go change the other wiki: http://darksouls.wikidot.com/crystal-lizard

    When they ask for proof, just tell them it's on scouts honor.

    Hahaha... "scouts honor". Seriously though, video footage is the best. You know the rule: Pics or it didn't happen.

    On the other hand, no need to be so venomous. This needs to get back on topic, so I discovered... that... I'm a better PvP player when I think I suck. It makes me take risks because "I'm going to die anyway." Then I run through some fat-*** who's dead-angling with is MLGS and backstab him. lol!

    I got pretty salty from back when the lore thread about the Braziers was active and people were straight up lying saying they had seen one or more lit. It made a lot of nice people waste a lot of time trying to get them lit on their own end.

    But this really doesn't matter. Slabs are really easy to farm now and you get 2 per play through guaranteed with 1-3 more from the Hallow. Plus even if they do drop from the lizards it has to be less than a 1% drop which makes it not really significant.

    Don't believe that you suck, if you believe it enough it will come true. Just be humble and take your success/failure for what it is.
