    Summoning specific players

    Post by Turbo H on Thu Oct 04, 2012 4:40 am

    Sorry if this has been covered, I skimmed the forums for the topic but did not see a thread related.

    I would like to know what the requirements are for summoning a friend on the 360. Facts on soul level requirements, locations and things that will prevent seeing each others signs would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance - again, I am sure its been covered and is common knowledge, I have little experience with co-op/pvp in Dark Souls.

    Fantastic sight btw, very helpful.

    The formula for summoning someone is that his soul level should be 10+15% around the host's Soul Level.

    White Sign Soapstone

    Use

    An online play item. It creates a white soul sign that another player can use to summon you into their world for cooperative play.

    To cast a sign using the White Sign Soapstone:

    You must be connected online.
    It does not matter if you're human or hollowed, or if the area boss is alive or defeated.

    To see signs cast by other players:

    The player must be in human form.
    The area boss must still be alive.
    If a member of the Warrior of Sunlight covenant uses the white sign soapstone, their soul sign will appear as golden or yellow instead of white. This is the only covenant to have an effect on the color of the white sign soapstone.

    The white sign soapstone can also warn players of impending invasions. If you meet the conditions for being invaded, online-use items like the soapstone will become temporarily disabled a few moments before an invasion occurs. The item will appear 'grayed-out' in the HUD, indicating that it cannot be used.

    Availability

    Available from Solaire of Astora in Undead Burg, when you answer "Yes" to both his questions.

    Online Matchmaking

    The player who casts a sign can only have their sign seen by others who are within "co-op range" of their level.
    Co-op range calculation: Your Level, +/- (10 + ~10% of Your Level). This means a level 100 player using the White Sign Soapstone can be summoned by others who are between the levels of ~80 to ~120.


    Red Sign Soapstone

    Use

    The Red Sign Soapstone is an online play item that allows players in human form to lay down a red soul sign.
    Another player may interact with their sign to summon them as an invading red phantom. The winner of the battle will receive souls and a single humanity point.

    To cast a sign using the Red Sign Soapstone:

    The player must be in human form.
    To see signs cast by other players:

    The player must be in human form.
    The area boss must still be alive.

    Availability

    Found at the highest point of the Painted World of Ariamis at the very top of the spiral staircase in one of the buildings near the Undead Dragon.

    Online Matchmaking

    The player who casts a sign can be summoned by others who are within co-op range below their level ( - (10 + 10% of the player's level)), and any level higher. This means a level 100 character using the Red Sign Soapstone can be summoned by others between the levels of 80 to 713.
    It is believed that higher priority matchmaking is given to players of closer levels. While it is possible for the red sign to appear for other players of a much higher level, it is more likely to be seen and activated by players closer to your level.

    ^Or not

    I believe in Patch 1.05,the formula changed and is not 10+10% but 10+15%!
