    Yes, Vagrants infecting the worlds of noobs, oh the joy... Almost as fun as killing gankers in the forest for free souls.

    So I randomly just drop random objects in random spots hoping those vagrants will be randomly spawning in some random player's world?

    Thats the basic idea... And if we can get, 40+ ppl doing it in the same areas over a few days we can increase the vagrant swarm.


    2 ppl dont know what vagrants are.....

    I've seen exactly 1. It was in the world of a ganker unlucky enough to have me, bp mushrooms, another invader, and an enormous vagrant in his world.

    I remember the first one I ever found. It actually came from where my camera was looking at me from, so one moment I was just looking at my toon sitting at a bonfire, the next? GIANT FREAKING DEMON CRAB MONSTER ATTACKING ME! It is literally the only thing that has ever scared me in Dark Souls, I'm on board.

    When you say giant, how big are you talking about? compare it to a black knight. or a boar.

    I have seen small ones and I was under the impression that they are asupposed to be able to get big.

    I have never found a vagrant in my world until experimenting with wiskey. We found a good amount rapidly, totaling about three or four at different times. I found blue ones and red ones, which says that there are different vagrant types. Now the difference between red or blue is uncertain, but the blue ones use ranged attacks, and never found a red on use em. Different sizes of crabs we found.

    Well, they both attacked me. Strangest thing, their were times when either me or whiskey did not see a vagrant, but one of us did. These vagrants if I remember were always blue. However there were times when we both saw a vagrant as well.

    oh that is interesting. I have only seen a few red ones. I was not aware that the ones with the crab hand appeared as blue also. The good ones now tha I recall do not have a pincer. Although I have never seen a good one.

    by the way, acidic. The vagrants you saw, where they spawned by you or wiskey?

    We never spawned anything, they just came. Mostly they were found in my world, however I think I saw a vagrant in whiskey's world once or twice in tombs. we did not do anything, they just came to be. All the crabs had pincers, both the red ones and blue ones, the blue ones did not have a blue pincer, but a red one. The red vagrants either had red or white pincers (if I remember correctly).

    Yes! Do this, I still have not seen one and I play online all the time.
    I have heard conflicting causes of what spawns them. Some say it is item drops and some say they spawn from bloodstains that have not been retrieved. If the latter is the case then humanity plays a part in the spawning of vagrants.

    Acidic, the red ones do shoot volleys of lightening. I ran into one the other day and fell off the ledge near the firekeeper souls where the darkwraiths are thinking I could avoid it, It started raining lightening down from the top of that ledge while I battled a darkwraith.

    I've never seen a blue one though. Yesterday was my very first vagrant encounter.

    Alright cool. Never saw them shoot at me thou... Maybe the vagrant forms due to the item or possibly the skills laid by lost bloodstains and items.

    This event would be a good time to test it out haha. Have 40+ people mass suicide in dukes or new londo silly

    I think it has to do with weapon drops, but I don't have any proof. I just spent a good amount of time in newlondo disposing of my repeat weapons so.. Shrug I'm inclined to believe its items/weapons because if it were bloodstains we should be seeing way more.

    Maybe it depends on the amount within the bloodstain. A good amount of souls and humanity might need to be sacrificed.

    But you are right, it seems to more so point to item drop than bloodstains. Otherwise, we would have seen more indeed.

    My strategy guide has the locations of all the posible vagrants. I can give you guys the list if you want, we just go to that locations and drop a large number of cheap items (poison knives).
