Dialogue

 

Talk:

Ahh, a new face, are you? And an accomplished hunter... it would appear. *chuckles* I am Valtr, Master of the League. Members of the League cleanse the streets of all the filth that's spread about during the hunt. Like any half-decent hunter ought to, you know? Haven't you seen enough of these wretched beasts, freakish slugs, and mad doctors? Sentence these fiends to death. With the help of your League confederates. What do you say? Why not join the League?


Edit - Upon joining the League:

"Now, there is one thing you must know. By the oath of the League, those who bear its rune will see vermin. Vermin writhe deep within all filth, and are the root of man's impurity. All vermin are to be crushed. The League exists to expunge all vermin, ridding us of any trace of human corruption. And so, until we are rid of all vermin, you must continue to hunt and kill. This bloody fate is ours alone. Do not expect the world to grasp our work... But remember, the confederates will always have my blessing... And each other. Always."

Join The League:

"Yes. As a hunter well should. Commit this to heart."
Our own Caryll rune, symbol of the League." ( Obtain Impurity


Refuse: Nothing happens.
Valtr requests you to reconsider.
You can talk to him again to join. 


"The night brims with defiled scum,
and is permeated by their rotten stench.
Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content!"

When attacked:

"Well, how quaint... You scoff at the League?
Then you are yourself a beast! A defiled mess of rotten flesh!
When you are dead, your rank blood will curdle with vermin!"

When player is killed:

Male Character: "Vermin writhe and squirm... You vile lout."

Female Character: "Vermin writhe and squirm... You no good wench."

 

 

Lore

A Yharnamite's favourite tale tells of a group of constables, who once chased a Beast back to Yharnam, all but one were killed. It was said he killed and ate the Beast in vengeance. This is implied how Valtr earned his title "Beast Eater".
Source: Constable Set Item Description

Valtr long ago lost the ability to see Vermin.
Source: Master's Iron Helm description

Other Notes:


After crushing 5 vermin, return to Valtr's location to pick up the Master's Iron Helm.

Once you pick up the Master's Iron Helm Valtr will no longer be wearing it when he is summoned by the Old Hunter Bell.
His name will also be represented as "Valtr, Beast Eater", instead of "Valtr, Master of the League" when summoned. This implies that he is no longer the master as he has passed the title on to the player by leaving them his helm.

Easy kill: Attack him and quickly run down to the elevator you've opened up and activate it, he will plunge to his death trying to follow you (this method also works for the hunter that spawns after Valtr's death or departure) just beware of your enemy pulling a plunging attack as they fall.

Bugs:

  • Spawning into the Forbidden Woods lamp Vlatr dies, the aggressive npc already spawned. The why is not yet known, and his death is random.

      I don't scoff at the league. I scoff at how you ram yourself down an elevator shaft and get killed by gravity.

        I made a character based off this guy and for some reason that was the character that allowed me to win the game.

          I CANNOT exaggerate how useful this guy is as a summon for ludwig he actually does damage and doesn't die in 2 minutes

            So lemme get this straight; The leader of the Co-op covenant is a guy who sits infront of the hardest boss in the game wearing a stupid looking hat, swinging around a giant stupid looking weapon he found, and then using said stupid weapon to easily mulch the mf whenever you need him?

            Cause that is a shockingly apt description of any dedicated dropper of summon signs in any dark souls game

              Valtr literally solo-ed the horse cuck while my underlvl ass run around baiting. Called him my in-game daddy since.

                Lore thought, Is the eye of a blood drunk hunter valtr's eye, In the impurity rune it is stated that the healing church searched a man and found vermin (and the impurity rune) It also states valtr lost his ability to see vermin. A better take on this is in this video

                  The voice acting is f’ing perfect. The rage when he speaks about beasts and vermin followed by the maniac laughter when he talks about the mission to destroy it all.

                    He actually changes his name to "valtr, beast eater" because he finally got the bucket off his head and is hungry from having it stuck there all night

                      I actually felt terrible after killing him to get the Madaras Whistle since he was such a badass character and helped me with Ludwig.

                        I have a strange issue...I was trying to summon Valtr for the Laurence battle and realized I suddenly could not do so. Reloaded, still not working. Traveled to the forbidden woods and his helmet was in the exact location he normally stands, and the hunter attacked me when I tried to exit. I killed him and reloaded, Valtr is still gone. Returned to the DLC, he still cannot be summoned. I want to add that I did not kill more than two Vermin, so I have no idea what happened. I heard him say some dialogue I've not heard before, but I can't remember what it was. Did Valtr somehow die?

                          Valtr is a freaking beast. In my ng+ cycle he killed ludwig with a visceral attack. Can't say the same against laurance. Valtr went in the lava and died. Still thinking that laurance isn't that strong. I beat him at the first attempt. The orphan is such more hard

                            I'm rather confused at this npc. I've summoned him twice now for Ludwig and both times he's clipped through the floor. A good 10-15 seconds later I'll get the notice he died. Is this a common glitch or something? I'm not really seeing anything on it.

                              Valtr never appeared on my world. I think he was there when I first went through the FW, but I didn't notice him. When I went back there a bit later, he wasn't there. Has this happened to anyone else?

                                I have constantly tried to get the Impurity rune by joining the league, however he does not hand it over. I took my previously equipped Radiance rune off and everything. I decided to not try the dlc until I got to NG+ and joined again. He still did not give me the rune, also, I can still see vermin in the Hunter' Nightmare. With this glitch, it is impossible for me to beat Ludwig, unless I farm until my hands fall off.

                                  Valtr is very usefull against Laurence. That combat, for my playstyle, is very difficult more than the Orphan. With Valtr, it was a cheese. Valtr attacks Laurence constantly, allowing you to devastate the ...s of the First Vicar. The only thing to pay attention is when Valtr has a low health bar; in that case, you must take the attention of Laurence, allowing Valtr to heal himself. I don't know against Ludwig how Valtr works, I defeated the crazy horse solo.

                                    In order to get the One Eyed Helmet after having completed his quest, you have to attack him in a new game cycle without talking to him. Otherwis, If you talk to him you will be given the Master Iron Helm.

                                    Its worth nothing that the helm looks slightly identical to the Iron Helm from Dark Souls

                                      In the Old Hunter's Edition, you need only crush one vermin to complete his questline. I don't know if it also applies to the Game of the Year Edition.

                                        This guy is such a damn monster against Ludwig. He just chews his hits and knocks him down left and right. Can't say the same against Laurence, but then again, Laurence destroys us all

                                          Before we enter the nightmare, the messengers gave us an eye of the blood drunk hunter. Valtr came in with the Dlc if I'm not wrong. I read somewhere that his description is one-eyed despite his npc having two eyes if summoned. Could it be that it's his eye? Considering how he talks about vermin in his dialogue.. kinda sounds blood drunk to me.

                                            Should it be mentioned anywhere that he lost the ability to see Vermin a long time ago?
                                            Like it's stated on his helmet.

I think he spawn when player consume a vermin then talk to Valtr. that hunter really powerfull I cannot deal with my 42 level char but build kinda sucks (arcane build)... he uses Hunter Axe also he buffs his weapon with Fire Paper... He wear a new attire comes with DLC...

His bucket is trash (literally) in every possible aspect and the whistle from the other npc is not viable at all. The only thing it was good for was to kill myself over and over again in dissappointment while wearing an idiotic bucket on my head. The dlc better not be such garbage...

All my characters were able to get the rune, staff, gesture, helm, and whistle from npc fight no problem except my last 2 characters. With my last 2 Valtr will give me the rune and I'll keep it on, crush some vermin, and go back but he won't give me the staff or gesture and the npc with the whistle will never show up. No matter how much vermin I crush (with rune on). Anyone else getting this problem?

He killed me in 3 hits and now every time i spawn he will rush out the wind mill and attack killing me. Any tips to end his aggression?

Went to the Hunter's Nightmare and before the first boss, there's a sign outside from where you can summon him. I did and he appeared without his helm. I thought this was standard until I was summoned to another player's world and he had summoned Valtr too, but he had his helmet on.
