    The best ally I've had in an invasion.

    Post by IceIfrit666 on Sun Jan 22, 2012 12:21 am

    I just had the funniest/best invasion ally ever.
    Two guys were farming us Darkmoons in Dark Anor Londo and we ended up on the stairs in the area before Ornstein. I went up to the area before you get the Dragon Bow and I saw a gift sent from Gwyn himself, a Vagrant. Not just a Vagrant, the most badassed Vagrant you will ever see.(Pardon the language.) It launched a Homing Soul Mass and killed the Phantom instantly. Each time the host used a CHSM the Vagrant went between us and tanked the damage.(This happened three times!) Eventually the Host got tired of the Vagrant and went after it. I ran in and with a BKGSword and hit the Host with a 2-hand running attack killing him instantly and saving my buddy, the Vagrant.

    Once a damn unlucky guy invaded me right after I had summoned iron Tarkus on top of Sen's Fortress...Iron Tarkus is the most badass ally I've ever had in an invasion...but that vagrant thing...that's too awesome.

    lol Iron Tarkus is trash at PvP! I've killed him at least a half-dozen times when invading as Darkwraith! My win ratio vs Tarkus is literally 100%. silly

    Same for Solaire.

    I will say though: Tarkus is the man when it comes to taking out the Iron Golem. I'm pretty sure he does impossible amounts of damage with his greatsword.

    Did I mention hate mail? There was hate mail.
    It stated that I am a homosexual, noob, and a coward that would never be able to kill him in a 1v1 fight.(Real message not being posted in fear of being banned.) Unsurprisingly, the next time I found him the two rushed me, the Phantom dying in one backstab and the guy I killed normally.Oh overconfident hosts, you so silly.

    That's an amazing story. If only you could have caught it on recording.

    Must have been a sight. A shame the hosts were so bratty about it, it could have been funny on both sides.

    Yeah, that's my only regret with that fight(and other awesome fights), but honestly I find idiot hosts like that all the time.

    some one said "giant vagrant" do they vary in size? the only one i've seen was the size of a crystal lizard. and it's attack reminded me of the stormkings squid shot from demons souls...

    as far i know they spawn when you're getting close to the area (a bit far you could say) so no you can't if you see one on the ground they're setter for that size and power :/

    There's a list of locations on the wiki.

    I don't think farming them would be a very viable tactic anyway! They're quite rare, you know... Skele babies, on the other hand, are abundant.

    This is the page:

    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Vagrants

    It's vague about the drops though. I'm pretty sure they only drop humanities or twin humanities, but I've only ever faced one, so I could be wrong...

    The most helpful ally I've had so far was one of two guys I summoned to kill the Bell Tower Gargoyles. I've done this fight loads of times and all the pair have ever dropped are humanity, homeward bones, Gargoyle Tail Axe and Shield. It had never crossed my mind to de-tail the second gargoyle. Suffice to say I love my Gargoyle Tail Halberd a lot. So thanks that guy. God knows how powerful he was, he one shot the gargoyle as he removed the tail.

    the second gargoyle starts out tailless... he just has a higher drop rate on the halberd than the armored one.
