Hollow Manservant Notes & Trivia
- As long as the player has not engaged the Curse-rotted Greatwood in battle, a certain Manservant will not attack the player and, approached from behind, can be prompted by the player to take them in their cage to the Pit of Hollows, where the player may talk to Hodrick and enter the Mound-Makers Covenant.
- All of the cages found in the Pit of Hollows belong to these undead.
- All Hollow Manservants can drop Great Machetes even if they never switch to it.

Does this guy turn hostile if you do fight Curse-rotted Greatwood, but haven't defeated it? Every time I try to get close enough to trigger the event of getting into the cage, he keep turning around to attack me.
Note: I did try and fight the Curse-rotted Greatwood, but homeward bone out after remembering about Hodrick. And since then, every attempt to get meet him end up with me fighting this specific manservant. Or he somehow manage to fall down from the cliff and to his death.
Why is the drop rate for the Great Machete not listed?
You can also get rubbish
The handsaw ones are insufferable. They have infinite stamina and spam a million combos a second with 270 degree coverage swipes randomly.
Can use “Rapport” on them. Just did that for fun before Hodrick spawned and it was pretty funny to watch. The Manservant got owned
they should have added a trapped hollow in the cage screaming and trying to get out and when you kill the servant the hollow breaks free and attacks
Weak to frost
The manservant who takes you to the pit of hollows also turns hostile if you kill hodrick when you meet him
"Stamina? that's bullsh*t"
"Staggered easily" lol wut
Uh, they use saws, not machetes
I don't want the stew, mom!
They drop giant cleaver I thought...
The non-hostile variant still attacks alluring skulls and the Allure spell. They died before its effects were exhausted so I'm unsure as to whether or not they remain hostile after doing that.
They're very similar to the kidnappers in bloodborne
Drops Titinite shards...
So I was practicing parrying the mansevant dude next to the dilapidated bridge bonfire, and from what it seems, and I kid you not, if that one dies from being riposted, he/she falls backwards on their back, AND from seeing up their kilt/dress you see a vagina. Please I urge you all to test this out and confirm this!!!
Where's the one that will take you to Hodrick?
Those cauldron hollows... a certain Kill Six Billion Demons story comes to mind: https://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/seeker-of-thrones-5-38/
pay to take a ride
Kettle full of meat is OP. Wish we could use them.
Jar wielding undead?
Not fully tested, but can be staggered (possible stun locked) with strong attacks (100% confirmed for Greatsword weapon type and up) leaving a more safer method of encounter rather than dodging wildly hoping for a opening, when there are few.
I thought it was a crucible...
