Darvo Event Stalker

Recommended Posts

I noticed that almost everyone said they encountered the Stalker in the Darvo alert. I only noticed once flicker then he appeared. Luckily an army of Moa's helped me kill him. After I defeated the Stalker he dropped a pink orb. I remember the orb drops being removed from the game awhile ago. So is this intentional? I didn't get to see what the drop was nor did it show up in my foundry afterwards. Has anyone else experienced this?

I've done this mission 8 times trying to get a blueprint (yes you can redo if you can find someone who hasn't yet done the alert) and he hasn't dropped anything.

It's a trap! Seriously, he showed up without any warning. Dropped an orb too, but I saw no blueprint in my foundry.

TFW I got dread from that pink orb.

 

Thanks stalker chan <3

The lights flickered once...

Stqlker appeared without saying a word...

Without any sound..

He caught me offguard and slash dashed me..

I shot him twice with my Brakk, and he fell down and died.

Oops, I broke Stalker.

You'll notice the whole mission is about how Darvo knows the Stalker is there. Several times during the mission he's like.

 

"So.. There's nothing strange going on in there? Just Corpus defenses.. Nothing.. Else?"

 

"Did I hear something strange over there? No? Okay. I'll just carry on then."

 

Then at the Last terminal he says: "Yes.. Yes here we are, I'm going to see if I can't lure.. I mean find the target."

 

And then when he shows up, Darvo is like. "There you are, Thought you could hunt me? I brought a tenno."

 

Etc.

Honestly he exploded so fast that I didn't even see him.  Was kind of embarassing - I was looking forward to getting the scan.

This. I was expecting a challenge, after hearing all these U11 horror stories about him.

 

I didn't see him at all through the mission except for the slash dash effect. I just spewed a few flames in that general direction, saw numbers go everywhere as he and all of the robots around him caught fire, and he was gone. No voice, no exiting squat & poof & flicker, nothing. Couldn't even find a body...

this version was meant to be easy. since it was story based. makes me wonder if stalker is officially dead.

The stalker in the darvo mission is way weaker than the randomly appearing one in the rest of the game. He is about half the level of the normal stalker thus the low difficulty.

Indeed. You could stand still and only his skills would kill you.

I didn't see him at all, at some point I got the "Good, that freak's been tailing me for weeks" message, but he never attacked me and I never attacked him, and nobody else in the mission mentioned him at all. Kinda sucks for me, I've been trying to get a Despair since it was released....

I experienced a very different issue with the Darvo event stalker encounter. While I would chalk it up to a series of glitching due to lag, it was an interesting thing to watch.

 

What happened was the lights flickered of course, then he appeared, yet a couple things happened at first: He was invisible/non-existent for about a minute or so, but I knew he had spawned because he was actively and repeatedly dispelling my iron skin as usual. During this time, no one else in my squad was experiencing any attacks/abilities, yet I could hear him slash dashing all over the place. And I'd like to note he was not targeting me. Once he actually DID spawn and the other players could see him, everything went as normal, and luckily we got the kill pretty easy.

 

Like I said, this odd occurrence was most likely due to the lag I was experiencing, along with not being able to stomp after the first time I stomped because it said "Power in use" for the rest of the mission, so my encounter really is not all that relevant. But it was fun to watch nonetheless, even though I was scared out of my mind for a while that the Stalker had learned how to be invisible too. :P

Event Stalker is only level 20. Stalkers attacking you in the field will generally be higher. I believe the formula for Stalker level calculation is the max level of the enemies in your current level OR the level of your highest gear + 15.

 

So if I were just bumming around in Mercury with a level 30 gun, chances are I would encounter a level 45 Stalker.

I was busy crushing moas when my niece said stalker, I had no time to react until she was slashed.

And then I was the same, I saw nothing but the black smoke once I was revived.

Lol. My team almost got wiped in my 1 run. We finished and I found a random Hate bp chilling in my foundry. <3

He showed up in my mission as well, and it seems he was after a noob on my squad. Just killed her in an instant, and left. Didn't even bother fighting me.

Just finished this with a friend, his blueprint orb doesn't tell you what you get when you pick it up, or in the display screen. But you can find it in the foundry. Unforunately, we got the blueprint he already had, Dread. I really hope this event gets followups though, I find I really like Darvo and seeing how Stalker retaliates would be interesting. (If this event effects Stalker appearance rates I hope that it brings them up, not down, to show him fighting us harder since we got in his way, rather than saying we beat him so he has to recover.)

I met him aw wee. No flickering or anything i realized stalker is there only when my clanmate said that stalker is attacking him. I killed him with synapse in a blink but he DIED, instead of Vanishing!!! Like what does this mean along with new stalker lore

I believe that might have been the real stalker...
