    Wow - 2 titanite slabs in a row ! (darkwraith drops)

    Post by Shabbalaba on Sat Jul 28, 2012 6:22 pm

    Yea !!! What are the odds of that ?

    Ironic how my last playthru i farmed the darkwraiths in new londo for what felt like days - trying to get a slab (which never dropped btw ! And now, the First 2 darkwraiths i killed drop titanite slabs !!!!!

    So yea, it can happen

    (i imagine the weighted ratios on a Slab drop from a darkwraith is prolly 1% - so this is my lucky day!)

    FWIW:
    - i was Human - 410 item discovery - 10 humanity 'active' and the serpant 'item discovery boost' ring equipped

    The above happened on my first time entering New Londo Ruins in this playthru.

    Yeah, on my latest playthrough I went to New Londo, not even expecting slabs, I was just farming chunks.

    I got 2 within the space of around 20 mins.

    I had the gold serpent ring, and zero humanity. I got lucky i guess.

    You both got pretty lucky. I ran twenty two runs through that godforsaken place with 10 humanity and the Gold Serpent ring, and all I got were chunks.

    Exactly ^

    I would honestly estimate 2-2-1/2 hours of nothing but killing darkwraiths on my last playthru...and i never once got and slab to drop.

    I got two slabs once. It was after I riposted two Darkwraiths during my I first arrival at the lower level New Londo (immediately after draining the water), every other Darkwraith dropped chunks, too bad I got killed by the stupid, slimy, puking thing before grabbing one of the drops (might have been another slab.) I had zero humanity, still in my hollowed form, and only have Havel's Ring and Hornet Ring equipped at the time. After that though, even when I equipped the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring and got 10 humanities in my (character's) bowel to boost the discovery rate up to 410, sometimes I still couldn't even get anything, much less a slab. And it's even worse when I don't have any humanity and the Serpent Ring equipped (the drop rate is ridiculously rare.) So I hypothesized that the drop rate is somehow drastically increased immediately after draining the water but I never really care to check it as I care more about the ridiculously rare drop rate of the white slab (I never even got one from those Pinwheel Servants, the heck!?)

    You lucky suns of biatches. I have still yet to ever get a slab drop from them, and i have never seen a vagrant either. This is with thousands of hrs of gameplay, i do love that the game has a bit of randomness when it comes to rare things like that. I still have yet to get a pure bladestone drop, so i think i might just be unlucky lol

    The game knows, it can read your mind and gives you what you aren't thinking about.

    I only saw a vagrant once on ps3 and 2 times on my xbox version. In more than 250 hours of gameplay. But I know they are rare. Not many have seen them much. That is also due to the mediocre online system. winking

    I saw two, actually.

    The first time was when I tried to reclaim my souls on top the tower in the Taurus Demon's area, after being killed off by it after standing around thinking I can't be hurt from up there (then it jumped up and quick shot me.) Anyway, the Vagrant gang-banged me to death together with the other two hollowed soldiers before I can touch my bloodstain. I came back and the thing was gone. Unable to exact vengeance, I raged for a good ten minutes after that.

    The second time was inside the church where the elevators are. I just came running back from the bonfire at Andre's place and here it was, going crazy on me together with the Tower Knight. I managed to dodge around and killed the stupid thing, just to get sniped by the freaking Channeler and smashed to death by the Tower Knight...

    I saw a Vagrant once.
    All I got was a purging stone.
    I don't think they're really worth seeing. lol

    I've seen 7, 4 in mine, and 3 in others. It always dropped some amount of humanity or twin humanity. Personally I think its totally awesome when you see one, and usually put in the trollest of places (behind a titanite demon, GLHF!), and they look really cool. Too bad no on knows 100% how to make them.
