    Darkstalkers Invasion Guide- Oolacile township

    Post by billy_bayonet on Fri Nov 02, 2012 10:13 pm

    Introduction

    Hello all and welcome to The 4th Darkstalker guide to invasions, I shall be uploading the Video to youtube tonight and shall add it to the OP of this post so you can see what i mean in certain points, The reading may get a little heavy as i will go into depth about certain areas and The great chokeholds this unique level design has.

    Basics

    Well first things first a well organised inventory is key to any invasion, Grouping your weapons together so you can swap between them is key, I.E. My Chaos uchi above that is my Chaos pike and below it is my chaos Claymore so if i wish to swap to a spear i can do that in an instant, Obviously this is common knowledge to those who Invade on a regular basis but this is the basics and as anyone will know a master of the basics lays a better foundation for the Advanced stuff,

    Inventory slots are a must i personally have the Red eye orb in the first slot, Green blossom in the second Lloyds Talismans in the Third, Poision throwing knifes in the Fourth and the fifth is usuall healing items if needed.

    Location

    Choosing where to invade from is one of the most important Parts to any DS member, Should you invade by the first bonfire you pop up right at the start of the level, Now this is good as you may find a lone host waiting to summon help Or a Duelist looking for a fight It also has its downsides as You can easily get 3v1'd Now invading from the Oolacile Township Dungeon bonfire will land you In The cavern of the abyss, Pay attention to any numbers appearing as you spawn as this will clue you as to wether the host has reached this spot yet if not start your climb to catch them on the way.

    Strategy

    Now we all have different strategies when invading, but i shall stick to mine if you dont agree with it or think its too complex feel free to dumb it down for yourself,

    Upon Invading Sweep the camera round no one wants to get Spawn jumped If the host is waiting for a duel kindly oblige but remember Somethings arent allways as they seem and a White or gold idiot could BS you at anytime, From the first Bonfire there is a Rooftop next to the ladders used to agro the Bloated heads in PVE, if you can lure a host or his phantoms hear try to be agressive to force them into rolling usually to there deaths Also pay attention to the lift if it down you can kick them down the hole, The township is a very deadly place to invade as there are lots of ways to fall to your death, And the mobs are very hard Obviously if its just the host do not be a coward let them kill the mobs before engaging, if they are thick and just keep going for you then kill them,

    The bridge to the mimic Can be very usefull As it force single file combat A well placed Firestorm can destory a 3v1 in a matter of seconds, Same as running to where the Silver pendant and the Dark orb are to set up an ambush as it leads to the Stairs from the mimic Remember you can stalk a host through a level and attack when you think they are most vulnerable,

    The dark Mages Can be very helpful as most hosts/phantoms will not rush you and risk being attacked by there high damaging attacks Use this to your full advantage A very easy way of Getting kills in the township is by using a greatbow and taking people off the ledges (I wouldn't recomend this as it gets quite boring) Once you hit the Dungeon Things can get very interesting If you get the jump on a host get yourself to The crest Key as most people will go for this first You can usually get a host seperated in this part of the level So use it to kill them or you can hunt his phantoms, There are plenty of ledges and drops available to an invader placing ambushes is a great skill to have.

    Once you reach the lift that takes you back to the township, Look for the mobs near the stairs if they are there and you havnt encountered the host yet take the elevator back to the top you may have missed them on the way down, if they are dead quickly make your way to the Chasm and prepare for some fun.

    Advanced

    Now i have touched on some very common knowledge to invading and i havnt yet gone into detail about certain Tactics and Choke holds But now i shall get into Those, Once the video has been uploaded you will see exactly what i mean by certain choke holds i shall also Edit this with the times they appear in the Video To help you better understand.

    First point of interest is the Winding path Down to where the First Dark sorcery is located due to its Design it promotes single file formations, A well used Fire tempest here will end most people same for any big AOE attack, If you can Use the OGS then the r2 can be great as most people will roll, forcing them to fall over.

    Second point of interest is Bridge After the Mimic now you rush to here and place an ambush there the Bloated head is to get a bs or OGS attack, the most number of kills i have gotten in the Township is by making people roll to there deaths Most of these are risne and repeat tactics but dont fall into your trap, Take the hit instead of rolling and get ready to parry the second hit.

    third point of interest, The room with the Dark fog Sorcery as i have allready said you can get to the crest key to set up an ambush but if you have a big enough head start you can get to the Ledge with the Dark mage and Start popping arrows into the host try to poisin him before dropping down and finishing him off while he tries to stay out of range of the mobs, You can force him into agro range of the Dark mage to get some free damage on him.

    Fourth point of interest, The chained prisoner guy thing Whatever it is This seems to be the most favoured spot for Gankers to hole up, If you see a lone host just stood there be careful there is usual somone hiding who will bs you the second you enter, Unfortunately there is no way to Flank them, If you believe its a setup Run into the room and immediate to a 180 Almost like trying a counter BS before its even attempted you can end up behind the Bs'er And get the upper hand Usually the host will come swinging so get ready to parry As it will almost allways result in Success if you know what your doing. If the chained prisoner is there the host is fighting him on his onsie well id recommend just watching, maybe use poisin on him to put some pressure on him, If there is 3 of them then Have at it.

    That concludes The Township Invasion guide, Once the video is up you will see more what i understand Some of you may allready know this Or have other things you wish to contribute i am Allways happy to Add stuff that other people use if they think it will help the guide.

    It's ironic. I"m up to 21 in a very short time, have many parries under my belt, and am drunk to boot. Go figure.
