Roaming Soul Information

Guardian spirits lurking in the thick fog of the central Shaded Woods. Their identites are completely unknown as they barely maintain corporeal forms and are almost invisible against the mist. Are they fallen soldiers of a war long past, or the remnants of a clan that once dwelled in this ancient land?

Best fought using weapons with a wide arc of attack so that they can be hit easier. Player can not lock-on. Area of effect magic, such as Firestorm, is greatly helpful. There are two variants, one with a sword and dagger, and one with a crossbow and dagger. however, they can be marked with the hexProfound Still, if you lure them to the forest entrance.

      DLC Priestess Eye + Roaming forrest souls29 Aug 2016 10:56  

      Well, Im not 100% Sure, but I also don't see any reguards to it. But I was playing through SotFS and after I'd gotten the priestess eye, these guys were visable. Not sure if its because of something I did, or because of the eye, but they sure are visable, and I was absolutly terrified when they weren't. You just expect them to always be invisable-ish, and you never go through that area more than maybe two or three times as is. Someone wanna confirm its not just me bugging out?

        (Can somebody please confirm this? I've been leaving markers for every roaring tree I've hit. I'm confident that I hit them all, and I'm positive that I killed all the mist-shrouded soldiers as well. Nothing's happened. PSN: Mighty_Konz)(I tried this in NG+++ and nothing happened. Cleared all the enemies out and marked and hit every tree. Pretty sure this is inaccurate information. --Cav)(I tried it on NG+ with no luck. As Cav stated, this information may be incorrect. Perhaps there are additional requirements? ~Moonlight Matthias)(Does not seem to work in NG at all, even after killing all the enemies to the point of no respawn, also marked all the roaring trees. As far as other requirements go I have killed Nashandra and just about every boss, I've also completed nearly every NPC questline, so I am not sure what the other requirements may be, unless it's a NG+ thing. I'll be giving it a try with bonfire ascetics to see if that makes a difference in NG, since the other testing was all in NG+. -Kyadeli, PS3)(Update: After spending the better part of an hour killing the Roaming Souls at Bonfire Intensity 2 in NG (all 14 of them), I spent another half an hour wandering around the forest hitting every large, roaring tree until it yelled at me, and another ten after that just wandering in search of this Washing Pole wielder. No luck. It may be a unique enemy to a higher NG+ similar to how you have to go to NG++ to get WoG and the Chaos spell outside of covenant rewards. -Kyadeli, PS3)
