Insolent Spirit (Insolent Dark Spirit)

Enemies >> Undead Crypt

Description (Spawn-Information from the Dark Souls fandom page, since the info here was outdated)

Found in several areas within the Undead Crypt after lighting a certain hidden brazier. From the Undead Ditch bonfire, make way to the shortcut bridge that lies along the path toward Velstadt's room. Drop to a platform barely visible below (Silvercat Ring recommended) and light the brazier found there. A whole party of Insolents will then spawn throughout several rooms within the whole stage.

  • A total of eleven Insolents will appear:

    1. Right behind the brazier used to summon them. Intended to take the player by surprise from behind.
    2. Up the ladder in the first graveyard which leads to a Leydia Witch guarding the second one.
    3. In the next room after the second graveyard.
    4. Inside a hidden room with a metal chest. From the main hall, enter the third graveyard and interact with the left wall to reveal a Pharros' Contraption. Activate it and another wall will open directly on the opposite side. The Insolent can be found hidden inside.
    5. In the main hall, right outside the first graveyard and to the right.
    6. In the lower level right after exiting Agdayne's lair. Can be lured to the upper floors with ranged attacks.
    7. Near the entrance to the hall that leads to Velstadt's room.
    8. In the hall that leads to Velstadt's room, hidden behind the series of mausoleums on the left.
    9. Near the far end of the room with two  Leydia Witches and several Undead Laborer.
    10. Near the entrance of the same room mentioned above. Has a guaranteed drop of a Fragrant Branch of Yore.
    11. In the first room when coming from the Undead Crypt Entrance bonfire.

    In Scholar of the First Sin, there is another one who spawns after lighting the brazier located at the middle of the bridge in the main hall. This Insolent does not drop anything, though, and acts more as a tutorial fight.

      Honestly... just... why? This is the most annoying farm i did in any souls game, even 50 loyce souls was more fun because at least the enemies were somewhat predictable but these guys? They just yolo cast AoE spells that one shot you and you have to run trough literal Hell every time you try farming them.

        The statues which lit up after lighting the sconce apparently represents the number of insolents left....More spirits u kill more statues' flames go off

          its absurd that non respawning enemies need to be farmed just make the set 100% drop chance because grinding to bonfire intensity 60 is just annoying especially when its on a bonfire near a boss because now u gotta clear the boss every time who thanks to intensity can kill u in one hit good job from soft outdid yourselves on this one :D

Additionally, they don't despawn even if you're killed so no worries. 1 near the syans in the entrance 2 in the room with the Lydia black mages 4 in the dark corridor 1 near the black mage and the treasure chest in the Ditch 1 in the room with Pharros contraption 1 in the left hallway going to vendrick
