    Yeah, gankers can be bad if they know what they're doing, but a smart player makes use of his surroundings to separate a host.

    On my Lautrec build I invade in Anor Londo, whenever I see gankers I run to the main hallway, and usually the host and his phantoms get split up by the Royal Sentinels and the Archer.

    Then it's a matter of ganking with the AI to kill the host.

    Yes, very true. But, don't forget to kill the accomplices after the host is dead. Some of them event quit after the host dies -- I never do. twisted I've even killed both phantoms after the host has died before. It's a great feeling not to mention absolutely hilarious.

    I like Lati's advice. However, I like to scout my prey early in the level if possible. I'll try to set up a trap before then and fall back to the Sentinel's if it doesn't work out. The silver knights are not to be taken lightly, especially with a distraction. They can back-stab people and they're difficult to parry in multi-player because their AI will 'spaz out' and they'll change their attack at the last second... not to mention lag. Try to make sure the giant shortcut in the main hall is open, too. I found myself all alone against three people in the main hall, but retreated to the Sentinels outside and was able to kill all three.

    In an attempt to fuel my blade's desire for the blood of sinners, I was apprehended by thine most cruelest of cowards: those that wait for us Darkmoons with their accomplices, the Gankers. Much worse was that they were experienced in the most sinful use of the Dark Magics, and even tainted the Miracles and Sorceries they hath wielded again mine blade.

    I shall rest mine wounds by my Knightess comrade's bonfire, and hope for a better hunt Tommorow.

    A good idea against gankers is to try and run. Take up as much of their time as you can.

    if you take up an invasion slot no one else will invade meaning no souls for them.

    Send them taunting messages while you hide. Chameleon and twop and Hornet ring are excellent tools while doing this. Dark magic as well if you have it. make sure you hunt your prey carefully. Go for quick kills when they panic and split up.

    A quality kill like this is better than killing 10 solo sinners in my opinion.

    Well this is the night I can play again. So much but I think I will return to my home of the Painted world to make it mine once more for the summer. This time I think I do something I never done before....invade and hunt without honor to make it my home and the bane to sinners. I plan to take a quote from a fanfic of a game series I have and place this into my bio. A simply edit from Remilia Scarlet from the Fantasy Kaleidoscope episode 2 to make it sound Dark Souls like: The Painted World will surely become my land...Humans, hollows, your fate lies upon my palm. With the power to control the night, feel free to grovel at my feet!

    To evil?

    I learned the power of a Silver Knight tonight.

    I actually invaded a guy and Silver Knight bro took care of it without me needing to intervene at all.

    Then a mimic killed a guy.

    Post by DarkMoon Kaiser on Mon Jun 10, 2013 1:13 am

    Uhmm... As... odd, as it may sound, I will be unable to join at the current time.
    In my desire to pay my respects to our Lord, Gwyn, in proper, I seem to have... Uhmm... angered Master Gwyndolin...

    Yes... Lets put it that way...

    Apologies for the rather... brief update... I am recovering from the shock of having been forced to kill mine Knightess friend...


    ((So yeah... I may have gone and become a completionist, so I wanted the Brass Set and the Sunlight Blade Miracle...

    Aaaaand then completely forgot I needed to kill Gwyndolin after entering the fog gate to get them.

    Look Skyward Prostration My bad Prostration Look Skyward

    I'll still join, but any Darkmoon activity is delayed until Playthrough 2, since I made a new character.

    And yes, I have a thing for the Darkmoon Knightess/Lady of the Darkling))

    Also messed up rather badly... I forgot to get the 'shrug' gesture from Petrus before I slaughtered him in NG, so I had to join his pitiful little covenant to get it just now in NG+ sad But I should be back up to Anor Londo shortly, at which point the massacre of faithless sinners will resume!

    No big deal you two we all have to break the rules at least once for covenant for the brass set and the sunlight blade, and getting back to the covenant is easy on a new playthrough. You guys can still make it for the fencing event right?

    I know about it, I just want to get a better Rapier for my build.

    Right now I have Divine Ricard's +10 but the damage output is sub-par.

    I'm thinking about going with Lightning.

    I'll see if I can get a hold of my estoc again. I used it before and if by chance and there may be a chance for invaders I'll use it again to kill them. Just like old times before the dlc came out.

    Oh yeah, the fencing event is... quite a ways away lol. I'm planning to make an entirely new toon for it actually, since I don't have any that are DEX-y enough to really be effective.

    Enough time and enough rapiers to use in game for the event. I am a host for the xbox side so I'll get there when I can and see what can be done.

    Lati why not try Occult. Depending on who you are fighting and your faith I find Occult amazing. Divine I only use on undead and crystal golems/skellies. Occult in PVP too happy
    I got an occult ricards rapier just for this fencing event. happy

    Soris Ice Goldwing wrote:Back to business so what has been going on in the game?

    I'm finding invasions slow the last few weeks. However, I've been extremely efficient. I honestly expect to win every invasion. And unless a lot goes wrong (usually terrible lag) it pretty much goes that way.

    Here are a few recent exploits(check out both; I double-posted). I also had a couple of cool comebacks recently. First, in dark AL by the first gargoyle I run into a katana and a tracer; I end up on the stairs with about 1/2 of HP and all but 1/8 of my bleed bar full. nail biting I rolled out of the bleed (blind luck -- I was just trying to dodge) and went to the top of the stairs, curled back along the railing to shield myself momentarily, dropped down to the higher ledge and popped a humanity. I've used the pacman analogy to describe the hunter and the hunted switching roles -- this felt like that, but these guys rushed down the stairs and charged right in. However, they had to stay in single file on the ledge... a MLGS R2 sent the white into the blackness of dark anor londo. The host survived another R2, but not the following R1s. cool

    I found myself taking a beating from two guys on the other side of the moving stairs in dark AL in another invasion. I ran onto the staircase and jumped down to the stairs and ran up (it's quicker than going around). The both tried to do a plunge attack on me, so I again ran around a railing and used it to shield myself while I popped a humanity. I put DMB my claymore and soon was the only one left standing. Railings OP need nerf! :razz:
