    EVENT 7/13 - 7/14: Invasions 101: Invasion of the Lowbies

    Post by reim0027 on Fri Jun 07, 2013 12:28 am

    I'd like to invite you all to a Lordran Invasion Event.  Many of you have seen this topic: Who can create the most powerful fair low level build.  Well, we've finalized the rules and dates.

    Here are the official rules.  Every attempt has been made to balance build diversity and low level fairness, almost to the point of handicapping the invader.  Low level invading is a blast.  Everyone should try them.

    The time goes from Saturday, July 13, 12am GMT - Sunday, July 14th, 11:59pm GMT.  World Clock Time


    The Rules:
    Sl 10 or lower

    • All spells/miracles/pyros can only be obtained in New Game only.  So, no doing 3 runs to get 3 combustions.
    • Max weapons upgrades at +5, and armor upgrades to +3 (so,only use titante shards)
    • Can use up to 10 twinkling titanites,
    • Can use only 1 Dragon Scale (the one in the Blighttown pit).  All others require killing a boss/enemy that is not meant for this low of SL.
    • Can not obtain anything by beating Kellog or Hydra.
    • Items may be obtained from only the following locations:

      • Firelink Shrine
      • Undead burg
      • Parish
      • Lower undead Burg
      • Lower B-Town (as defined from the location you enter using the Master Key)
      • Great Hollow
      • Darkroot basin
      • Darkroot garden
      • The Depths













    • Black Knight weapons are not allowed, they are too powerful when Twinked out.
    • Weapons upgrades only thorugh Andre
    • Merchants: Male undead, Female undead
    • Trainers: Griggs, Rickert, Petrus, and Laurentis
    • Exceptions: RTSR and Brigand's are obtained in Valley of the Drakes - those are OK.
    • Humanity.  Must start at 0.  And, you must earn every humanity through host kills (so, no healing during the fights).


    Official Weapon/Armor/Ring/Items List

    The goal of this is to be fair, almost to the point of being handicapped.

    If  a phantom or the host has an elemental weapon, or crown of dusk, then you can pull out any weapon/armor you want (so have them in reserve).  This includes a host or weapon that is clearly way above the average level for that area.  So, if you see someone wielding a BKGA, slap on a HR and a raper and give them the what's for.

    That last paragraph is subjective and will rely on your own discretion.

    The Rewards:


    • PS3: The person with the most kills will get 198 Cracked Red Eye Orbs, 1 of each titanite Chunks, and an honorary membership into The Darkstalkers covenant (minimum of 20 kills required for membership).  If the winner is already a Darkstalker, PM me and I can gift you another item of your choice.
    • XBox: Same as the PS3, except for the covenant membership.  Items will be provided by Lord Ash's Trader store (Thanks for helping out Lord).
    • PC: Sorry, I don't have rewards for you, other than recognition


    The participants:

    • reim0027.  PSN IDs: reim0027_2, _3, _4, and/or _5

    PC



    Invasions can be anywhere in the game.  For those of you who need Cracked Red Eye orbs, I can give you some from my SL 6.  Ideally, you should show your dedication as a Darkwraith by joining the covenant.  This will be a challenge, but well worth it.  I'm sure many of our members can help each otehr out.

    We've done our best deciding on these rules.  If you find discrepencies in the rules, please let me know and I'll fix them.

    p.s. - if anyone is good at formatting this so it looks pretty, please PM me.  I suck at these things.

    I hope to see you guys there as we welcome new players to the game!

    When you sign up, include your PSN ID, XBL GT, or PC GFWL ID and your proposed build (if you have one decided).

    And can E or Fex add this to the Calendar please?

    But Soris, Oscar's items aren't allowed.

    Crest is in the Asylum, and the Dragoncrest and Astora's are in Valley of the Drakes.

    I'm up for this.

    Wait the crest can be obtained from the elevator in the Parish and the astora sword can be obtained by the basin to the drake valley. Eh if not I'll go knight for the crest shield.

    The crest can only be obtained by killing hollow astora in the Asylum (which is off limits for items).

    Is Dragon's Crest and Astora's off limits?

    This seems like a lot of fun, but Elite Knight's is the armor I'll be using, I can't use my swagalicious Witch Cloak, so I have to make do with what I have.

    Both of those are ok. I removed crest shield from the spreadsheet. I do my best to filter these, but there will be some errors.

    I've got something made already.

    Pyro knight, go!

    But shouldn't the Gargoyle's Halberd be allowed? You can get it from the Bell Gargoyles, who are in the Parish.

    Rules on armor upgrades? Can I upgrade +10 path armor to +3 with regular titanite? Also, can I use an elemental weapon to kill white phantoms, and do those kills count for the event?

    EDIT: Why aren't the Claws allowed!? You need to go to the garden and lower Btown to get them, both of which are legitimate locations under your rules.

    EDIT#2: Forgot to add, count me in for sure! I already have a build for just this reason.

    Hey if we win do we have to accept the rewards? I'm for the cracked orbs, but the membership doesn't interest me at all.

    Tolvo, it's an honorary membership. If you win you are one of us in spirit anyway, is the point.

    I don't want to be associated with the Darkstalkers, so I don't want an honorary membership even in spirit. But the cracked orbs sound nice.

    I have never done low level invading. I think the lowest level I've ever invaded at was 55.
    I guess it's time to try something new. Sign me up.

    Something which seems to have been overlooked: How exactly will we keep track of kills? Will it work on an honesty system, or do you have something else in mind?

    That seems odd, you don't want anything to do with the darkstalkers, except use their power to enter other people's worlds.

    The rewards wont effect me, it's a weekend long thing and I can't marathon play in my current state. there's just no way for me to compete against people who can invest the time.
