    Tips for trading items

    Post by morte on Thu Feb 21, 2013 5:04 pm

    A friend and I were starting new characters and I agreed to transport some of his stuff to a new one, something like 15 slabs and mad good stuff like that. Anyway, we met to give me the stuff for transport, but I haven't been able to find him online during invasions, summons, etc. to give it back :affraid: Any tips on how to invade/summon him when we're both online?

    What levels are the both of you? Where are you trying to trade?

    You want areas with low traffic, for my trades I tend to use the Ceaseless Discharge area since you can skip him if you can tank the lava.

    You'll need to be of similar levels to connect easily, or at all if using the White Soap Stone.

    There are also little tricks like dropping your sign, then putting it down again and waiting 5-6 seconds. Remove the sign then put it down again. This should cause it to refresh and show up in more worlds. Note, you need to actively remove it after the 5-6 seconds by pressing the interaction button while over it, the other times you need to just drop your stone. I'm not sure who came up with that but I learned it from one of our mods, Befowler.

    Thanks for the tip, tolvo. Really hoping to get the stuff back to the poor guy, the time it must have taken to find all those titanite bits, boss weapons and +15 things is immense, although he did get some from a kind soul that gave them to him. I'd feel bad if they sat there in my defunct character's inventory.
