Forlorn Information

 

"Born of Aldia's Obsession with the First Sin, the Forlorn lost both their corporeal form and a world to call their own. Now they drift into other worlds, ever in search of a home. But without self, one has neither beginning nor end, and so the Forlorn have only to wander."

Strategy Tips

  • There are two variants of Forlorn that will invade the player. One wields a greatsword while the other posesses a scythe.
  • Like many invading NPCs the forlorn will make use of evasive maneuvers, such as rolling and backstepping, along with parrying and jumping attacks to bring the player down.
  • They can be stunlocked by sorceries, however if the player is unable to stunlock them or misses there is a high chance the forlorn will follow up with an attack while the player is vulnerable to deal massive damage.

Move Set

  • Among this forlorn's many moves, two of them have the potential to go pass your shield and do some damage. An overhead attack and the back sweep both can bypass the player's shield's defenses to inflict some damage

      Invaded in the forest of giants right after the freaking cardinal tower bonfire. Was NOT prepped for a greatsword build like that-- was only level 17, jesus.

        In sotfs, it seems like he spawns with the Greatsword in areas before Drangleic Castle and with the scythe in Drangleic Castle and beyond

          He invaded me after completing the Lost Bastille when I was upgrading at McDuff's. Thought it was a player at first.

            I've a suspicion that the key to make folron invades frequently is to be low on effigy. I completed the entire game with 0 invades of folron , having usually 20 effigy in my inventory throughout the entire play through. As soon as I did Darkdiver Grandahl's questline and used a bunch of my effigies plus in some places afterwards i dropped around 1-3. Since then within a very short ammount of time he has already invaded me twice. Now this isn't data that has been tried a thousand times but it might be useful if turned to be true

              How do you get them to spawn? I went though the game three times with the dlc but not single one appeared, Also had the game before the dlc and played before it. When I got the dlc's I also got all three key for each dlc area when I went back on, I play on the 360 version. Can someone help?

                I've had Forlorn invade all over. One invaded by the first Giant memory, another before The Pursuer's boss fight location, Black Gulch, Crown of the Ivory King, Huntsman's Copse, Brightstone Cove Tseldore near the blacksmith, and Drangleic Castle. The spawn points seem to be pretty random, and based on my play through its always been the one with the Greatsword. The only time the one with the Scythe spawned was in the Ivory King, however when I went back to Straid of Olaphis he only sold the Greatsword. So not sure if he only sells the weapon of the first Forlorn that spawns once you've defeated enough to get the full armor set?

                  Do you have to start all over again when you start NG+ or does the counter continue? Ie, if i killed three in NG, will it count the first that invades in ng+ at the 4th or the the 1st?

                    100% invade is only in Huntsman Copse near those big fat guys. His other invasions are totally random, he can invade almost everywhere, including DLC's. He can invade you even multiplie times in exact same area, example: He might invade you near every giant tree in Fotfg. He can invade you even after you defeat boss of the area or even after you clear whole area from the enemies. He's an asshole, but there's one thing to make fights with him easier, he block with sword/scythe very often, like about after 2-3 attacks/combos/hit-trades, he will block for some time, enough to guardbreak and punish, take that atventage.

                    IMPORTANT: There is one nasty place where he can invade you - it's in Shulva. Inside the sanctum in room, where are multiplie ghosts. Near hidden bonefire (the one you have to open with those buttons and jump for it), in room where there are cursed corpes of knights you want to destroy to make them valueable on physical side. The room where are two big holes and one little path beneath those, the corpses are on walls. YEAH, he might invade you in there with 3-5 ghost at same time. Here's tip, just run around and destroy a corpse at a time when u can, dodge, knights will eventually drop in holes, when u destroy all of corpses, kill knights first or try to make them fall, then kill him.

                      What if forlorn are the undead that chose aldias ending? Constantly wandering the world in search of something to call home. Born could mean made a new rather than created and if the undead doesnt take up the mantle of monarch to light the flame their world would end like in dark souls 3, forcing them to drift into other worlds.

                        Ultra Greatswords absolutely wreck Forlorn, as long as you always leave yourself a little stamina to roll away after you attack

                          I have a feeling that this forlorn dude is like a glass cannon powerful in Offense but bad at defense so he has to have weakness to something

                            I feel anyone wonder where he spawns, it's freaking everywhere, I've been invaded by him once went back and he didn't invade again, it's a random chance and it's nearly everywhere so be careful

                              They seem able to invade even after the area boss is defeated. One showed up in harvest valley after defeating the covetous demon
