    Darkwraith Invading.

    Post by Tharacon2 on Tue Dec 11, 2012 3:13 am

    So I was In the Kiln going to Gwyn on my level 50 int toon and I get invaded by a guy. So I go attack mode with all out Soul spear (Logan glitched me out on this playthrough so no crystal magic except dragon breath), MLGS everything. this guy had around 2100 hp? After about 10 minutes of dueling with this guy, I thought t was some sort of hack or giving the benefit of the doubt a vit gouge, I beat him. I sent him a message asking what his level was just out of curiousity, and he said 524 and he had 99 vit, and if I recall the darkwraiths can invade anyone higher level and only 10% less than the players level so was this some sort of bug or was I just extremely unlucky orsomething? It just confused me! Lol

    Thanks and yeah the guy and I ended up exchanging a few messages with eachother, sharing build ideas and whatnot lol. But during the duel it was insane I hit him with a SS that did 700 dmg then followed it up with a strike from the MLGS which did 350ish damage thinking he'd die and when he didn't :shock: it was crazy and when I got the kill it was cheers lol

    Off the top of my head http://mmdks.com/ftq thats what my build looked like, I'm not home so probably a few mistakes there but that's the gist xD I don't know what it is with me and low vitality lol!

    I've done a lot testing of level ranges, and I've never been able to go below 10% of my level when invading with the Red Eye Orb:
    http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t14670-all-of-the-exact-level-ranges-matchmaking-formulas-for-the-multiplayer-items

    So yes, something is very unusual or wrong for a level ~500 Darkwraith to invade down to a level 50 host. I wonder if, in the same way that you can sometimes be summoned or invade as the wrong kind of phantom, if the level ranges can glitch on rare occasions. I've never encountered that, though, in hundreds of invasions where I kept track of the levels I invaded (which always fit within an expected level range)...

    What system are you playing on? Is it possible the player was hacking and wouldn't admit it when you contacted them?

    I've invaded a few SLs down, but that is insane. I thing retro's right. It is the only thing I can think of.

    maybe he was a Darkmoon that glitched red phantom when he spawned?

    ive turned blue/white before when invading as a DW

    That's possible Glute, my only other thought is that sometimes it glitches and you might invade down. I never DW at very high levels anyway, so I don't have the experience of invading someone significantly below me.

    I am on the Xbox and what Glute said makes a lot of sense seeing as though yesterday through my WSS I was summoned up as a dark wraith 2 times in a row!

    There also used to be a rumor that Cracked Eye Orbs could ignore level ranges. I don't think it's ever been confirmed or denied.
