    Really, if you're cooping, and you see a Vagrant, don't kill it right away, they are unique beings that happen to spawn in extremely rare ocassions. Just let your host see it, or vice versa, share the experience, then kill them in Jolly Co-operation Don't be a jerk (Vagrants) 639795459!

    This is because I'm sad I've never seen a Vagrant myself, even though I have +3000 hours in Dark Souls. I once had the opportunity, was in Darkroot Forest, summoned a guy to kill Sif, we went to kill the Giant Mushrooms, took a while, then suddenly the phantom started running to Sif's area, or at least that's why I believed. I saw that before he reached the bridge, he turned to the left, I followed him, mad because I don't want him to lead.

    Then I saw it, can't remember how much, but I got some souls, I went to where my phantom was to see what did he killed, and then I saw some loot on the floor. It was monster drop loot, because monster drop loot looks like a yellow/blue orb, instead of having an icon. I picked it up, Twin Humanities. I then realized what he just killed. I raged, and I BCed him out.

    Don't be a jerk.

    I killed a host's Vagrant once... he was level 15 in the parish. He was fighting the Beraknight thingy, and the Vagrant shot a ton of missiles and brought him down to like a sliver of health. I made a split second decision to get rid of the vagrant before it got rid of him.

    Strange as it may seem, sometimes (often) the host can't see the vagrant. They can grab its humanity once you kill it though. I led a host in the burg up the crossbow archer's tower to show him the harmless little vagrant there and he had no idea wtf I was doing. He's like, yeah, nice view, can we go now?

    In New Londo I've been thanked twice for giving the host humanity after killing the vagrant that spawns near Beatrice.

    I've only ever seen one in my entire playtime.. he committed suicide into Ash Lake before I was able to kill him =[

    I really wish FromSoft would revamp the Vagrant system as I really think it would be awesome to see them a little more often. I wouldn't want them to be common, of course. But seriously someone who plays 3000 hours should have run across them several times, imHo.

    It's better to die, than to miss a mostly-unique opportunity, he could just recover his souls and humanity, and he could summon you again.

    I actually faded a guy in Dukes and he was in the mimic room. I'm searching for the guy and notice something on the bookshelf by the bonfire. Look Skyward

    I led the guy to the vagrant with prism stones, let him kill it, then obliterated him with a flamberge. So I'd say my karma balanced out.

    I've never ran into one while I was co-oping, that would be cool but no. I've only ran into 3 after over 1000 hours of gameplay.

    Well why would the vagrant still hang around when the host die?

    If the vagrant is so rare,even with 30 online deaths per minute,there should be a reason.
