    There is no way to counter it, except to assume under all conditions someone has done it.

    You know though, most people don't even know they've performed the exploit, they have no indication anything was wrong on your screen.

    I have never encountered this problem, but I have encountered invisible invaders when co-oping in the forest. Literally, my friend and I were trying to get to Sif, and he tells me he is being attacked by a red phantom. I look at him to see whats going on, and I dont see anything except for his health draining. I didnt even get a notice that we were invaded.

    It used to, but it was patched. It may still work sometimes, though.

    All I can say is be prepared for it if you invade the same person again.

    Yes it does, if you've cast a spell 30 seconds prior to being invaded, it has no effect on your opponents screen.

    I don't think it works with crystal soul mass and I have been using the dragon eye in township for the past couple of days and this has happened on 3 separate occasions and it gets really annoying

    This may be through the use of a glitch, however it can simply be a connection problem.

    It is possible for a phantom in the world to not connect to another phantom. I've seen it a decent amount in FC. There is nothing to do about it either, because even if you swing at them and where they are, the hit won't count. It's possible for someone to connect to you as well without connecting to them. Thus they are invisible to you. It's pretty game breaking though it should be a rare sight.

    i've been invaded by invisible dark wraiths in the Darkroot Forest and in Anor Londo, thankfully the time it did happen they had a visible aura otherwise i wouldn't have known they were there. i didn't get any messages about being invaded either.

    i've had times where i get the "invaded" message and immediately start taking phantom damage as if i'm being attacked, only to have a dark wraith spawn after i was already dead.

    i've been hit by invisible spells, i couldn't say what they were because i couldn't see them, but from the OHKO i would guess it was dark magic of some kind. the host would just turn around to face me and bow, then i would die instantly … it was probably pursuers.

    i've seen players swinging greatclubs and zweihanders as if they were straight swords.

    i've been summoned as a dark wraith through my white soapstone. appear as a spirit of vengence when invading as a dark wraith, been summoned through my dragon eye remnant even though the host neither summoned me nor had any dragon scales.

    because sometimes weird **** happens.

    I'm pretty certain it doesn't work for body buffs sadly.
    But you can hit them with a surprise DMB or CMW if you've good timing.

    Any idea what took off about 800 HP and didn't break any poise about 2 full seconds after I blocked pursuers with great magic shield?
