    sl 80 player earns 1.7 million Souls...

    Post by Micha369 on Tue May 07, 2013 4:19 am

    hello folks,

    My playpal and I started new chars together to play a little pvp. We both have the Red Eye Orb and do some invasions. At appr. sl 80 he told me that something strange happend to him. He had a fight in Anor Londo and won and got 890000 souls! Then he went to the forest and invadet another guy and this guy somehow died without having seen him at all (maybe he fell from a cliff). And again he earned 870000 souls!
    With 1,7 millions he could of course level up to sl 100 on the spot. He stopped at sl 100 because otherwise we possibly couldn't play together anymore (level cap). But of course he could buy everything that is possible to buy. (incl. Pyro Flame +15)

    My question is: how can the game let this happen?
    I thought there is a level cap! And just yesterday I was explained from experts in this forum that I get 10% of the souls the host need to level up. That means the host needed 8.9 million souls to level up??? On what level he must be?
    Where is the level cap?

    Maybe in the forest in is possible (because is is said that there isn't a level cap). But it should't be possible in Anor Londo, should't it?


    A second thing was weird:
    My friend invaded in my world but I saw a different player name and so he did! (we recognized each other because we both were carrying very specific equipment).
    After our fight we looked under Players in the menu of Games for Windows Life and could not see a record of this fight. Normally one would expect to see a players name, (in this case the name of my friend) and the time I last met him (in this case appr. 2 minutes ago). But there was no entry of this fight at all.

    These two things look to us very buggy! We play on pc (Dark Souls Prepaire to Die Edition)

    Does anybody have an explanation for this?

    On what level I must be that I need 8,9 million souls for the next level?


    Many thanks for your reply.

    Best wishes

    Dark wraith can invade infinitely up, but the range only kicks in when invading down. So you could invade a SL712.

    2nd one no idea.

    BTW you do know the pyro flame can be upgraded more to ascended+5 by queelana down in the swamp?

    Do you know how many souls are needed for leveling up at this sl region?

    Yes, I know that. Queelana appears from the point I have a Pyro. Flame +10.

    Because I don't know the exact value of souls he got (it was 890k in A L and 870k in the forest) I tried the 8949476 you wrote down. But the answer given by that excel sheet is:
    #Unknown_Error!
    But it must have been a character of a sl higher than 711.
    Because you need 8236435 souls to get from sl 711 to sl 712!
    And 10% of this is approx. what he got! Is this correct?

    Looks like the excel is broke. According to this, it's 8.8M to go from 711 to 712, so 800K+ souls would be about right.

    List of all soul levels and respective souls needed. Yes 10% if you invade, i've seen people equip the silver ring just as they kill to get 20% onto the total.

    Yay! The calculator is back up. Now, I can get back to my Growing Up in the Forest charting.

    In order to reach the MAXIMUM level, you'll need 1,375,374,132 souls total, more than you can even cap the soul counter at (it stops just shy of a billion souls, this is 1.4 billion).

    I have actually had both of these happen to me before. When I was invading as a lvl 130 I invaded a man duel wielding a spear and scimitar in Ornsteins armor.(probably spelt his name wrong.) Now, I was in full Havels with a tower shield and Black Knight Great axe. So I knew he was dead right when I saw him. I just wailed on him, noticed he had a bit more health than usual but paid it no attention. But when I killed him, I got over 1.2 million souls. It was ridiculous. Spent it all buying Twinkling titanite.

    Another time I invaded a guy and no name appeared. No big deal with it. But still. Weird.
