    A vagrant in my own world.

    Meaningful Black phantom enemies.

    The hardest level of difficulty on Dark Ponies

    Got one after about hour 1,100. I'd forgotten they exist.

    This is kind of related to the thread, so...: I just now realized that if you beat down a ghost with a divine weapon in the Catacombs, but a Wisp finishes it off, it regenerates at full health. All this time and I never noticed that.

    Never made a str build. Hell, ive never even wielded a weapon that requires more than 11 str.

    I don't know how people can min-max the game from the start.

    As soon as I saw the dragon bow my first toon got 20 str and 20 dex. Then I wanted to use Zwiehander, then I figured I should try the quelagg fury sword, then I thought I will just be a pure pyromancer.

    He ended with something like 24 dex (or more?) and 40 str. no faith and no intelligence, but 38 attunement, I am serious. This is why his vitality is only 26 or something.

    Needless to say the character ended with the most absurd stats, but I can use ALMOST every weapon. I still have never touched artorias sword, or sanctus or grant but I plan to eventually bring this character over 120, so I'll use them then ;P

    ^^ my first playthrough my stats were all over the place cause i wanted to try everything. Someone else mentioned another thing i have yet to experience also. a VAGRANT i have not even seen the less hostile one none the less the rarer hostile ones. i wish i didnt look it up on you tube if i ran into one of those without knowing about it i would pee my pants, especially after so many hrs of gameplay without ever seeing one.

    I only ever got to see a vagrant when my brother was playing in the archives. I have never had one in my game. I went online to ask what it was and someone was like GOD use the wiki.

    How exactly does one get the idea to search Vagrant after seeing a bubble that shoots volleys of lightening bolts?

    Anyway, I make a point of dropping a whole bunch of items around dukes and the parish whenever I am there. blacknight swords and halberds and whatever from farming. Someday I will meet the elusive vagrant.. if not atleast I hope my actions will increase their apperance for other players

    I think I heard its rare item drops too. But I could be wrong, either way I don't intend to keep my 5000 black knight weapons when I already have one of each at +5 so I just throw them down anywhere, when I get summoned I give them to the summoner or if I am PVPing i make a ring of them and fight within the ring of drops lol.

    Ponies and humanity .. the enjoyment I am getting from this april fools day is probably unhealthy

    Man, it's weird how rare vagrants are for some. The other day I saw two on one boss-run in New Londo. Second one 1-shot me from behind. (I mean, who ever heard of two malignant vagrants on one boss-run???)

    Oh, and I never killed Dusk. I'm sure I never will.

    I've played over 400 hours and have every weapon, armor spell etc, but have yet to see a Vagrant or get the Dragon body. I have enough dragon scales on plenty of toons but haven't got around to getting it.

    I've been killed by a vagrant 2 times. The second one was hiding in New Londo, where Beatrice's sign is. I came out, turned the corner to take out the Darkwraith, and was insta-killed. I turned the camera around and saw a vagrant hiding there. PISSED off, I was. :evil:

    Played over 500hrs, have yet to get past Anor Londo. Maybe I will, maybe I won't; having quite a bit of fun just running around the beginning of the game.

    Yeah, they have certain spawn points, and that is a common one in New Londo.
