      still bugged even in 1.07, on her second location at Mt. Gelmir. very sad I'm gonna miss on a Somber Ancient Stone because of a supposedly fixed bug

        So what is meant by Ogress in her description? I mean in-game universe. I haven't found any other reference to Ogre or Ogress anywhere else only for this NPC

          It's cute the way she spams Wild Strikes even when I'm 30 feet away from her, which can be avoided by just casually walking away from her.

            Mildred is like patches. She is immortal and travels across fromsoft universes through time and space itself to re-incarnate herself in a different form.

              They must have added the Ancient dragon smithing stone in a later patch. In earlier versions the 3rd invasion she only dropped a furcalling finger remedy. So I always ignored her third encounter.

                If you're having trouble finding her: ride the troll caravan, she will invade you. The western cart specifically

                  Isnt a finger maiden the same as fire keepers in previous games, the one who levels you up, just like Melania at the start of the game? and is anastasia the finger eater wears finger maiden attire, does that means she is an evil copy of Anastasia the fire keeper from DS? i mean a version of Patches is here as well. something to think about.

                    I killed the snowfields putrid avatar before getting to this invasion and it didnt spawn.
                    After beating the game and not going to NG+, i returned and they spawned.
                    There has also been a patch since then too (not sure if i checked since then), but i did come back and check a few times before completing the game, where they wouldn't spawn.

                      Was looking for her forever in Consecrated Snowfield, turns out the map was kinda way off on her location. I know the map isn't exact, but it was further from it than I expected. She's not right under the big rock, shes on the frozen river south of that, in between the grace and the wolves chasing the invisible scarab. if you're having trouble (and if its not a bug), try running around the river just NW of the grace until you are forced to dismount. This is for patch 1.05, have only killed stray mimic and yelough tunnels boss, astel 2. Have not killed putrid avatar.

                        Today they rolled the patch out and they fixed her invasion for Consecrated Snowfield. She appeared on my save where I've already killed the Putrid Avatar and Great Wyrm Theodorix.

                          Is her non invader counterpart the lady at volcano manor who asks you to join? I can't find who the volcano lady is and it's kinda extremely frustrating

                            I just had her invade right after defeating the Putrid Avatar in Consecrated Snowfield so maybe that's fixed now.

                              One of if not THE Worst Npc Invasion questline, and it’s only because of the fact she has a Max tier Smithing stone as a reward, oh and she can Bug out and just never trigger in the Snowfields location

                              They honestly need to remove or at least fix the “won’t invade if all area bosses have been killed” as there can be multiple bosses, at the very least that description SHOULD include the Catacombs, Tunnels, etc. bosses as well since technically those bosses are apart of the area as it’s only accessible via arrival in said Land the caves are located in

                                Quitee frankly i have done her invasions in diffrent order - Mt. Gelmir -> Consecrated Snowfield -> Smouldering Church and acquired only rewards for first and last kill, she dropped only remedy when killed in Snowfield. That kinda pisses me off but hey! at lest she spawned apparently :D

                                  Anyone knows what causes her not to spawn on the 3rd invasion? She spawned for me but I am curious as to why she doesn't spawn for others.

                                    Still not spawning at the snow fields. I got the Sanguine invader, but then I killed the putrid tree guy before trying this invasion

                                      Like many here Anastasia didn't invade in the snowfields for me, bummer, there are only few ancient dragon smithing stone. But i wonder, is it just glitched, or is it an intended "feature" ?

                                        So like fromsoft to gather all the worst features from their games and keep them. Literally the rarest single piece of crafting/upgrade material in the game - ancient somber dragon's smithing stone, and you can't get it because you accidentally bonked some stupid fat blob with a health bar.

                                          Never got the Butchering Knife drop. On my third playthru, I know for sure I didn't sell the weapon. I've killed her at all three spawns.

                                            Actually got invaded by her first in Mt. Gelmer, since I didn't visit the Caelid spawn point beforehand. Killed her and got the Talisman. Later went to Smoldering Church and got invaded by her again, but she didn't drop the Butcher Knife. Now in Consecrated Snowfield she won't spawn, I have killed Fire Giant.

                                              When it comes to Anastasia, at least, the whole not spawning after killing area bosses only seems to apply for the third invasion. She still invaded me the second time well after I had already killed Rykard and the Fallingstar beast.

                                                For people not getting her to spawn at the Smoldering Church, make sure you enter the structure from the main entrance. Going from either sides won’t trigger her spawn, unless you exit and walk a bit around the front of the church.

                                                  Wtf why doesn't she spawn if you kill the Putrid Avatar that's stupid. Especially when they put a sending gate before you reach Anastasia that teleports you right to the Putrid Avatar.

                                                    She isn't invading for me at the smoldering church somehow. I'm on NG+ and haven't done any caelid bosses yet either.

                                                      I’m still on my first play-through and while I adore this open-world twist on Dark Souls, I also felt punished by exploring. 30 hours in, I was absolutely giddy to finally stumble upon my old pal Patches… that is, until my overleveled tarnished inadvertently slaughtered him. Or when I wasn’t invaded by Anastasia at the Corpose-Stench Shack because, I learned, of the route I had taken and some of the bosses that had already fallen in my wake.

                                                      Suffice to stay, I’m still miffed about Patches, but I am happy to report that moments ago, I was riding my horse towards the Corpse-Stench Shack in Mt. Gelmir when my Tarnished abruptly dismounted from her horse and was invaded by Anastasia.

                                                        I can understand a stone or spriti enemy not being weak to dex/slash weapons ... yet you have literally a human enemy not weak to slash and bloodloss but apparently strike damage type.

                                                              • for anyone who's having trouble with her spawning in the Consecrated Snowfield, causing her to invade you have to be on the Southwest side of the river for her to spawn on the Northeast side. the interactive map shows where she spawns but it is not where you have to be to trigger the invasion.

She will not spawn in the snowfield no matter what I do. I have confirmed the same thing with several friends. Please report the bug to Bandai Namco so they can fix it. It's very easy.

                                                                        • Several articles on the wiki state that invaders won’t invade if area bosses have been defeated, yet this was an issue that Fromsoft has addressed on several different invaders now. Prior to patch 1.03, people were having issues with Bernahl not invading in Farum Azula after all the bosses were defeated, but this was changed after Patch 1.03, so he’d invade regardless of the bosses. Then, in Patch 1.04, which was just announced today, the same issue was addressed with both Edgar and Vyke not invading in Liurnia after the area’s bosses had been defeated.

                                                                          I really hope Fromsoft addresses Anastasia’s obvious issues as well, it really sucks to be locked out of a somber ancient dragon stone purely because of a glitch and not actual game progress.

She invaded me on 2 different characters both of which had already killed that boss. It needs to be removed. She is just buggy for whatever reason.

I can dodge all her attacks and easily defeat her but the dog runs up behind me locks in place for a sec a Anastasia does a combo move. This dog is not ok... :(

So it's definitely not her third invasion granting you that, just simply her invasion in the snowfield.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

I lured her back to the long ladder up the cliff-side, had her chase me up it (I found that I had to stay on the ladder for her to continue climbing it), then kicked her off from high up it. One plummet later, one knife awarded.

So I waited there and am just on my phone looking for a fixed and she ran up and attacked me after 5 minutes. Idk if it's a bug but I feel like her ass runs all the way from then minor erdtree to the position on the map.

Make sure you are going to the correct spot. She invaded me while I was walking towards the corpse in the chair with the stonesword key.
