      I still find it fascinating how, in their hollowed, mad, hopeless state, they still retain their faith (evident by how they can use their miracles). Faith and hope often coincide on another, and hollowing can occur via lots different things: one of them being hopelessness. Perhaps they're not entirely gone? perhaps there's hope for them to reverse their hollowing?

        That buff they give is a stronger version of sacred oath(and it stacks with sacred oath) and you can get it by using rapport on them while they cast it.

          The part regarding the increase in dropped souls might simply be a case of overkill payout. I think that if you hit a certain percentage above the max HP of the target in one blow, you get like 20% more Souls.

            Someone should add on the page that the Sacred Oath like buff they grant is way stronger than the regular Sacred Oath. I had one of these guys buff me as an invader and my weapon AR went up by 20% and my absorption by 25%.

              These priests saved me when I was invading in lothric castle, healed and buffed me the second my hp got low

                These have the absolute best looking swords in the entire game. Why, just why didn't From make them dropable??
                I really wish I knew how to model swap for my offline playthrough...
