And here's something that's bothered me for quite some time. In the Catacombs of Carthus, the second skeleton ball can explode, like the first one that also leaves a bone shard, but this one leaves a small crab behind. No clue as to why this is, but I find it humorous.
I have yet to find any connection to why or how the crab got there, but hopefully someone will notice something to provide some in game context. I'm curious to know if it has anything to do with the embered giant crabs in the nearby Smouldering Lake?
And why are some enemies embered anyways?
