    Best covenant in the game. Even when I feel like not killing the host a lot of the time I message them and ask if they want help and next minute i'm putting my white stone down and they summon me usually straight away. Quicker than if I just put it down in the same spot without organising it that way and I swear once you've invaded them it's like they're in the same lobby as you so you get summoned more quickly.

    That was a long sentence, i'm tired.

    I'm sure anyone that has actually been playing the game long enough probably has a Darkwraith character of some sort, there are some exceptions like those who just want to co-op, do just the arena, or invade as an SoV but the Darkwraith seems to be one of the most popular multiplayer covenants in the game.

    About the Darkwraiths

    Post by Paragon on Sat Mar 02, 2013 4:57 pm

    Darkwraiths are cool. I respect them quite a bit. But If you asked me if I ever wanted to be one myself, I would probably say no.

    I love the simplicity of invading via the cracked red eye orb and if the Red Eye Orb is anything like the cracked version, I feel like I would enjoy it as well. But for some reason the fact that the Red Eye Orb has infinite uses really turns me off to the idea of using it. I like having to trade with darkwraiths for their Cracked red eye orbs because it makes every invasion with those cracked orbs unique and special.

    I have a deep reverence for combat and I feel like being able to invade anyone at anytime for no reason at all cheapens the experience. For example, even though the Blue Eye orb is infinite their is a reason for each invasion. If I invade as a SoV it means that whoever i am invading to some extent deserves the invasion and that I have a right to battle them. If I invade using a Cracked red eye orb then to some extent I earned the right to invade and battle the host because I worked so hard to get that invasion.

    But with the Red Eye Orb the person im invading is innocent and I didn't really earn the right to invade them. In a sense with the Red Eye Orb I have no right to be in their world, i don't belong there.

    Perhaps one day in the future I might change my mind and see the light (or dark in this case). But for now yall won't be seeing "Dark spirit luvz2fight has invaded" unless im using a cracked red eye orb.

    That's generally the point. As a Darkwraith, you are essentially seen as evil and corrupt, so being able to invade unsuspecting players at will and steal their humanity plays well with their covenant. That is also another story aspect there... The fact that they don't belong there, makes them more of a menace. There's a lot of story elements that coincide with their invasion mechanic.

    Just like Darkmoons, Darkwraiths have a purpose. Darkwraiths are also there to balance the odds. Anyone can beat the game if they summon phantoms to help. Darkwraiths are there to bring that advantage down a notch, and keep this game difficult. Then, we get indicted and invaded, and our game becomes difficult. It is a perfect circle.

    If any of you like Darkwraithing, you should join our Darkwraith covenant, the Darkstalkers for invading fun. Link in my sig.

    After losing all my builds to a failed HD my #1 build is darkwraith. It's the first time I chose that over FH, and it's a lot of fun since you get to pick battles in different areas, and it's also great for duels/souls (invade into duels, wait your turn, get souls no matter what, sometimes a lot of them, win/win). It also fits my preference for 5-6 attunement slots and non-scaling magic since versatility is rewarded.
