    Strange Enemy in NewLondo

    Post by lxtab on Mon Feb 27, 2012 9:59 pm

    I was watching my friend play NG in the drained area of New Londo ruins, and he came across an enemy I've never seen before. It was a glowing see-through orb thing with scuttling legs and two large pincers. Like I said, I'd never seen it before and my friend immediately killed it out of surprise(it was hostile) so I can't be more descriptive. It gave him two humanity.

    Does anyone know what this was?

    It's called a VAGRANT. And he is very lucky, I've never seen one before. Here is the Wiki:

    I know this is off topic but, awesome Princess Mononoke avatar, love the kodama big grin

    Yes they are extremely rare, in 300 hours of playing I have seen four, three being online and one offline.

    So what do they drops? Armor? Weapons?

    I know the wiki says it'll drop things based on if it's a good or a bad Vagrant, but what kind of things will it drop exactly?

    Four in only 300 hours?!

    That is not rare. You are off the charts lucky.

    I am approaching 900 hours now and have seen exactly one. .... In someone else's world no less.

    I invaded in the demon ruins and there it was right next to the spawn point. The host was way over near the large flame ember and I sent him a message telling him to get over to the damn thing, lol.

    He had no idea what I was talking about.

    To be fair I have died many times with over 30 humanity and not able to recover, I'm pretty sure that is one of the requirements to get one to spawn.

    I have seen one of each; the passive running one once before the patching, saw him at the Gargoyle Cathedral behind the archer, only for half a second and I had a WTF moment and it was gone. The second I just fought this week in the Demon's ruins. I was trying to just run after the Large Flame ember, had only two shields equipped and suddenly light spears from the tentacled evil one! I bashed his head in for 5-6 minutes. Got 6800 souls and three humanity.

    Their nice to see but their definitely a rare occurrence.

    I think your probably right, well it would make sense in my situation anyway as i died with 37 humanity in sens trying to drop to the bottom and died before recovering it. Though i hadnt reached this area before i lost all my humanity so cant confirm if it was already there or not
