    It could've been. I personally don't have any experience with a vagrant, so I might look vagrants up on the wiki itself.

    We suspect it has something to do with vagrants, or drift items, since items will only change if you are playing online.
    I can make these by dropping items and run so far away from the drop point that killed enemies in the area will respawn, then run back (no warping or quitting) and sometimes the item will be replaced with something else, I usually find lloyd's talismans (and I usually drop consumable items). It doesn't work every time either, maybe 1 out of 5 or something.
    Retro found that one of the shortest routes for making items change is by dropping them in Darkroot Garden, right outside the titanite demon room, then run to Firelink and back again.

    Nice, I can try do this =]
    I was sure that I died/homeward/warped before find changed item!
    Its a pity that only common items drop...

    Wondering if it works with dropped armor... I only saw with dropped rings!

    You can also make them by warping, but running back and forth is more reliable (at least in my case). I don't know what all the 'gift' items you can get in return are, I've mostly dropped consumables and in return I have gotten lloyds talisman, prism stone, titanite shard. I have no idea of why this happens either.
