    Invasion glitch?... A weird amount of souls awarded.

    Post by BrotherBob on Wed May 29, 2013 12:03 am

    I was doing some Darkroot Garden Darkwraith invading on my SL25 build and ended up in a duel with a player that I didn't that was very high in SL. They had ~1500HP and their arsenal certainly wasn't capable of 1- or 2- shoting me. I ended up winning the duel and, to my surprise, was awarded over 700,000 souls. I find it impossible to imagine that I had dueled with someone that high in SL, since their health and weapons weren't overwhelming enough to qualify that. I messaged, asking what SL the player was, but didn't get a response. So, I'm asking here: is this a glitch? If so, does it happen only to Darkwraiths, as my Darkmoon Blade never experienced this?

We will not rest until their blood flows into this very ground.

    I doubt it's a glitch. I bet it was just a high level player f*cking around without Ring of favour and protection and with maybe some not fully upgraded weapons.

    If OP is only sl 25 he can only invade a 35 correct? I'm not sure how souls are determind but if the guy had like 999 mil maybe that's why you got 700k

    Darkwraiths can invade and SL above them (they do invade slightly below them too). I've taken out a 713 with my SL 6.

    700k in souls is about 654 SL for an invader.

    What reim said. Darkwraith invasions have no upper limit, I've killed people upwards of SL200 at SL5. Odd that the HP would be that low but most likely it was around 1900 and you just miscalculated.

    @Juutas: Huh, well it makes sense. I sometimes just experiment with weapons I would never use when I happen to actually invade a ~SL25.

    @reim0027: Nice! That's awesome.

    @Ghadis_God: You're probably right. It was a couple days ago, so I might have just mucked up the details in my head.

    I'm about half way through my forest run. I've kept tabs on the SL of every host I've beaten. Right now, I'm at 365. When I get to 400, I'll post the list and stats. This is for catbros, but maybe it'll help you too.
