Lambent Stalks were massive plant-like structures appearing similar to roots and trees that seem to spawn from deep in the ground, presumedly from the source of their mutation, Imulsion. Appearing around 16 months after the sinking of Jacinto, they can burst out of the ground, or from under the oceans of Sera. The Stalks can release from their branches and bases, Lambent footsoldiers like the Polyps, Drudges, Lambent Drones, Gunkers and even Lambent Berserkers from the pods that the stalk sends out. Adam Fenix believes they are the fruiting body of imulsion.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Lambent Stalks have first been seen in the Ashes to Ashes trailer- a few Lambent Stalks can be seen in the far background. Lambent Stalks are not necessarily a new enemy for Gears of War 3, as they have no way to directly attack the player. Rather, they are more of a way of introducing the Lambent into battle, similar to the Emergence Holes in previous games.
Lambent Stalks will appear first. They are easily hinted by the screen vibrating and will pop up in a live Lambent-like color. They will also summon several ejection pods, which shoot out pods which will usually contain Polyps, Drudges or Lambent Drones. They will never spit out Lambent Berserkers or Gunkers (apart from a few cases). Once all the pods are down, the stalk will freeze up and die, having a grey like color.
