    Random Rubbish

    Post by ZikoLogiKa NL on Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:00 pm

    It happens on very rare occasions that I find a random rubbish laying around on the floor somewhere , it always appears as if another player actually dropped it because it looks like the golden moneybag before you go to pick it up.

    Yesterday it happened to me during the Gravelord Tour in the Parish. When I died and came back to recover my stain ,

    once again there was this mysterious random rubbish laying in the vicinity..

    Does anyone know what causes this to happen ?

    It can't be that an invader dropped it because it would've dissapeared during my resurrection if Im not mistaken..

    Its a drift item. If you didnt pick it up it would go to a few other worlds before becoming a vagrant.

    Aah damn ,

    Do you know if drift items cause friendly vagrants to spawn , as opposed to failing to retrieve your own stain causing evil vagrants to spawn , or is this random ?

    When I was cursing Anor last week , an invading SOV told me he was killed by my Black Phantom Sentinel on the stairs before he was able to retrieve his stain from dying earlier.

    Minutes later he reported to have seen an evil vagrant on the walkway near the 2 SK archers ,

    assuming that one was spawned because he couldn't retrieve his own stain.

    So the origin of that drift item doesnt have to be from my world , even if I saw it , so it's more or less like a WSS which rotates through the player group ?

    Yeah the tiems goes through a whole bunch of worlds before changing. Dont know about the bloodstains vs drift items but Im pretty sure humanity and twin humanity make evil vagrants.

    What exactly are considered "drift items"? I drop weapons and armor constantly and I've never had any weapons or armor drift into my game from other players who I assume do the same thing.

    This game mechanic is a bit hazy, since it's pretty rare, but players have found bags with rubbish, lloyds talismans, titanite shards, etc.
    It doesn't work the way intended without a dedicated server, just like message rating and synergy rings. Afaik the intention is that dropped items drift into other players worlds and changes.

    So far all encountered Vagrants supplied me with regular humanity , Except for one evil one , who gave me twin-humanities upon killing him.

    Is it true that there are no Synergy Rings visible on PS3 at all ?

    On XBL we have them , and message rating works , but sometimes it might take up to 2 hours before I can see an up rating which a friend gave me.

    More or less non existant, which is a bit odd since other online features kind of works (like petrified victims of curse, player ghosts, bloodstains, messages). I think I saw a few rings when watching early gameplay from the asian version, before the game was released in us/eu. So it could have been changed in a patch, or the resources from it could have been redirected to anther online feature.
