Humanoids with eggs on their backs. If you attack one, the eggs will hatch and Vile Maggot larva will attack you, so it's best to just leave these alone as they are usually docile otherwise. Some very slowly crawl towards you and attempt to claw you.
It has a grapple attack that will infect the player with a Parasite Egg.
LocationQuelaag's Domain & Demon Ruins
Two can be found near Quelaag's boss fog, several more can be found near the first Demon Ruins bonfire.
Very easy to avoid, so don't panic and attack them.
They can be farmed very easily with the Great Chaos Fireball pyromancy, as it will kill the carrier and the larvae with a single cast.
Egg Vermifuge (rare)
- It is possible for the Egg carrier to glitch you through the floor when grabbing you with it's grapple attack.
- It is also possible for the maggots spawned after killing an Egg carrier to be untouchable by melee attacks and spells to undershoot them for no effect (unless they have a large AoE), but bows/crossbows will still hit them.
