    I have two things that will eat time for me on Saturday (12pm-2pm and then again from dinnertime into the evening), but will get some games in that day and most of Sunday.

    Just as a question are you allowed to use the estoc in this challenge because while that is in an illegal area it can be gained easily with just a little explanation.
    I ask this because the new build I was planning on using was this:

    Got the blood of 20 hosts on my hands (4 twinks, 1 very high SL) and spiritual remains of 8 phantoms (1 twink). 
    I managed to die around 20 times as well, mostly to Hellkites breath upon spawning and few times to twinks.

    With that, I'm calling quits and returning to do my work. Maybe I'll do some more invading later.

    Great event and I must say I never had such smooth invading with so many legit players like today. Well done Reim. cheers

    Here's the stuff I used if you're interested.
    http://mmdks.com/34m9

    I was told that I can't use this gear, but I wasn't told why, except for no changes to the list, so I still used it anyway. I have issues with allowing Jagged Ghost Blade, but nobody said anything about it when I mentioned it, so...
    Black Sorcerer Cloak is from Sen's, but has lower resistances to physical attacks then the normal Sorcerer Cloak, while has higher resistances to elements, so it's perfect. Domhalls stuff is non-upgradable, so it provides low defences and it gives me exactly 10 Poise, which is sweet.

    EDIT:
    My lady threw me out from the PC, so I did some more invasions. Adding 10 more host kills (5 twinks), 5 phantoms and 8 more deaths for me. Damn that Hellkite. big grin

    I think I also ran into a few guys trying to ruin the event. There was one who had Ring of Fog and was hiding from me. To no avail, if I might add...twice big grin. He got kicked from the Black Knights tower and plunge attacked. And few high SL guys spamming Dried Finger with closed gate by the Sunlight Altar. They were obviously aiming to farm invaders.

    Also, I met one host with a phantom who must have been completely new to the game. They had no idea what they're doing and didn't even know what the hell I am until I attacked them. Kudos to the phantom for trying to buy the host time, so that he can go to the boss. That's very rare. Most people just gank me without a second thought.

    I have 5 kills, all single hosts, all most likely on their first playthrough. To compliment this, I have between 10 and 15 deaths, ranging from single competent players on NG+ to full on gank attack, to a couple of guys with crystal magic weapon who OHKO'd me. 

    My build if anyone is interested: http://mmdks.com/2u3u

    It's not all bad though. In my final invasion, I met a guy who was a little more skilled than me, but was using an unupgraded rapier which was doing about 10-20 damage. We had a great fight, and I eventually emerged victorious, my faith in my own abilities slightly bolstered, regardless of the fact the he hit me far more times than I hit him, and that I have a base level rapier to thank for my success. 

    On another note; I backstabbed a guy in full Solaire armour for 50 damage! only 50! Each hit did about 20 damage. Needless to say, my demise was as swift as it was expected. when I saw '50' pop up, it dawned on me that I was doomed...

    I'll be logging on later tonight, hopefully there are still a few lowbies alive. And, avenger, the Estoc has already been on the list.

    At current I have about 20 host kills, Unfortunately I forgot to get a twinked weapon and so have no way to kill a few of these guys.

    My total, including the previous post from me:

    57 Hosts / 3 Twinks / 2 High SL (580k Souls one and the other was around 150k Souls).
    19 White Phantom / 6 Twinks.
    4 Sunbros.

    That was from 99 Cracked Red Eye Orbs. I got no CREOs left, so that's the end of the line for me. It was fun.

    btw
    Who ever had the bright idea of allowing Ghost weapons deserves a slap from the host I tested their damage on. In Parish, those things are OP like hell. Ghost Blade does DOUBLE the damage of Dagger +5 and Jagged Ghost Blade does roughly 30% more damage than Reinforced Club +5. Might be ok in Depths, but not in Parish, nor Burg guys.
    I ended up buying Reinforced Club and Hand Axe +0, because even +5 weapons were OP sometimes. More than HALF of my hosts had +0 weapons when going to fight Gargoyles. New players, perhaps?

    I usually don't bring out the ghost blade unless there are phantoms or twinks. But, it is powerful. Maybe if we do another event, it will not be allowed.

    I give Hornet + Chaos Dagger +5 to twinks and high SL guys.

    Both of Ghost weapons are powerful. Ghost Blade is useless until you land a Critical, but Jagged just destroys people in Parish. Typical Gold Tracer spam. I can swing it only four times with my SL 1 Stamina, but it was enough to take out two players at one time. Higher damage than most +5 weapons, with this speed and Bleed to boot.
    I was trying to show my lady why I think it's OP. big grin

    I'm amazed I didn't ruin into any trolls. I was warned in the chat that some guys plan to twink host, just to ruin the event.

    Oh yeah! I met one hacker.
    Don't ask me how, but he had COMPLETELY invisible body, except for his head, which had Domhalls, Black Knights and Mask of Father at the same time. It looked ridiculous! His infinite HP was a bigger problem then invisible body though. -__-

    That's why the Jagged Ghost blade is out. And, yeah, the regular Ghost Blade's crits are better than the dagger's. That's why I ditched the dagger and have the Ghost Blade as my backup for ripostes.

    Well I've not been playing 2 hours and got about 14 host kills and a number of phantoms I havent counted, but have had more guys pull the plug on me than kills. Also my housemate keeps resetting the router so I am getting kicked out of my game half the time. Some people just have no courtesy at all! Its just gone midnight here so am going to pack it in until the buzzard goes to sleep and have an early start tomorrow.

    That's strange. I do get plug-pullers, but they are the exception and not the rule.

    I only had a few PP on me.  I had some circumstances come up on me such that I was only able to play a bit over 2h today, but I got to 21 host kills.

    I had forgotten to take this character into NG+ to get a regular zweihander...so my original build wouldn't work since the one I have on me is chaos +5 lol.

    So, what I've been using is this:

    http://mmdks.com/3502

    Except the +15's are obviously +5's.  However, I don't just have the reinforced club +5...oh no.  I have:

    - reinforced club +5
    - longsword +5
    - broadsword +5
    - bastard sword +5 (pretty impressive weapon actually)
    - spear +5. 

    My elementals are chaos zwei +5 and lightning spear +5...and I have a light xbow +14 with heavy bolts too.

    I will often remove the knight chest piece, giving me 58 poise and fast roll.  I swap weapons around based on what I think gives me the best matchup big grin.  The kick is REALLY good in these low level invasions.  It's always good, but at low lvl people don't have the stamina or stability to take them, so you can threaten guard break and make setup parries impossible (1st block on weapon attack breaks guard, very nasty).

    By far, the nastiest weapon has been the reinforced club.  People just don't have the health to survive getting staggered by it, hit 1 more time, then BS'd lol.  Maybe one of the more threatening builds in this would have been to just go str and 2hand a hammer, with any weapon of choice as a backup X_X.

    So, within a few minutes, I get both hatemail and a friend request (from 2 different people).

    1. Hatemail: upset that I used a weapon with bleed (Reinforced Club). Called me cheap. At first, he accused me of purposely invading someone 50 levels below myself. Well, I'm a darkwraith at SL 10. So, when he realized that excuse didn't hold water, he then went on the bleed excuse. I told him he could have parried me. In fact, he didn't attack at all. I asked him if he needed help with the level. He said no thanks. I told him I had better not see him using any kats, scythes, daggers, knives, tracers, maces, reinforced clubs, as well.

    2. Next invasion, I fight someone who was obviously new. He was one of those people who spammed R1 and ran and healed (his weapon did minimal damage). After I won, I sent him a PM asking if he needed help beating the level. He thanked me, even thanked me for whooping his arse, and sent me a FR.

    I guess some people just don't like getting beaten. As soon as they die, they rationalize how the other player cheated/played unfair.

    Oh!  I forgot to mention a really interesting story (oddly no hatemail at all after 21 host kills on xbox...)

    I invaded into parish, and there were 2 other darkwraiths already, one in giants.  This isn't a situation where a SL 10 needs to be shy about equipment, so on goes the chaos zwei.  Since it looked like host + 1 of them would tag team me, I ran back up with the mobs.  One wraith followed, and I dead angled/stunlocked him to death (he fished way too predictably) --> 33k souls.  Okay, so he's about SL 100 I guess.  Pretty reasonable.

    Fought the next darkwraith, with hosts trying to take pot shots at me with magic too.  Lots of crystal soul masses X_X.  I did some good damage to the darkwraith, but really I'm not build to fight such high lvls (would need chaos rapier + hornet or something).  Host eventually caught me with CSS...but I hurt the DW enough that he also died.  I got 1.4 MILLION souls?!  So, this will be my quality build after the event, since getting to 120 is instant now.  Jeebus.

    Lol @ Reim
    I've had 2 friend requests thus far, no hatemail just indictments. My best FR was when the mobs went for all 3 questers and I jumped off the ledge to double back around them and take them out one by one. The host PM'd me with "Well done, Sir" lol

    No luck no kills. I couldn't kill the 4kings so I went forest hunting. Two situations I get. A: Low sl with +15 gear or any armor that makes a plus +5 broadsword do 56 damage or B: sl 120s with +15 gear. I think the 120s took pity to see a thief as they did not make fun of me.

    I told you I'd help you with 4 kings, and so did someone else.  This event made me sooo much better at them lol.
