Encounters

  • Found inside a cage in Sen's Fortress.
    • To reach him you'll have to rotate the "boulder machine", so the boulder crushes a wall behind a sleeping guard.
    • The key to unlock his cage is found at the top of the castle. Jump across the broken walkway, that leads to a lone tower, then descend the stairs. Kill the guard and pick up the Key. (Or simply use the Master Key.)
    • It is not necessary to have freed Griggs of Vinheim.
    • Shortcut: (You will need enough HP/def to survive a single attack of a lizard guard and a weak enough weapon not to one shot the guard) After the first room with swinging axes, you will come to another room with a sleeping lizard guard below you and to the right. This is the same guard as mentioned above. From the ledge above, target the guard, roll towards him, and do a falling attack. When he awakens he will try and stab you and his attack breaks the wall. Try to move behind him if his first attack misses, sometimes his second will break attack will break it. This works about 85% of the time on the PS3.

  • Back at the Firelink Shrine, Logan will teach you various advanced magic spells, but only if your intelligence stat is 15 or higher.

  • Later in the game, when the golden fog doors have been opened, you encounter him in a big jail cell in The Duke's Archives
    • Attack Seath the Scaleless in his room, he is invincible and you will be cursed or killed. (note: perfect use for rare ring of sacrifice) Upon revival you wake up next to the 2nd bonfire of the Archives, trapped inside a cell. Kill the snake guard through the bars to grab the key to your cell off of his corpse. From the bonfire, turn right out of the cell and head all the way down the spiral stairs to find Logan in a large cage at the bottom, guarded by a group of blue octopus things.
    • The key to opening the cage (Archive Tower Giant Cell Key) can be found in a chest in the room with the collapsible staircase on the bottom level of the main building. (The room before the crystal golem garden that leads to Crystal Cave.)
    • Either after you have rescued him from his cell or after you have defeated Seath the Scaleless, you can can find him behind the shortcut bookcase that you opened to gain access to the crystal golem garden. Pass through it and he is on a small alcove in the left of the library.
      At this point he will sell you crystal variants of the original spells along with the originals. You can also talk to him for hints on how to defeat Seath the Scaleless. Note that you MUST buy all of his spells or he will not become insane.
    • After you buy all of his spells and defeat Seath the Scaleless, Logan will not recognize you and tell you not to bother him, which leads to triggering his final appearance. (You will have to buy all the spells again on your next playthrough.)
    • Talk to him several times, and you'll notice that he's clearly gone mad. Now rezone / reload again (may take two reloads) and he'll have left that spot.

  • His final appearance is in the original room where you first encountered Seath the Scaleless.
    • Logan has gone insane and starts attacking you with his spells. You will have to resort to killing him. For this you will get his drops.
    • After you kill him, go back to the room where he sold you his spells. You will find a chest in his place with Logan's Catalyst, as well as the remainder of the Big Hat's Set.
    • (Note: You will need to reload the game before each of these events if you have not done so since defeating Seath the Scaleless.)
