    What affects how many souls you get from invading? RESOLVED

    Post by ROOSTER330 on Sat Jul 14, 2012 12:32 am

    Making a new character yesterday, had 4 red orbs from the graveyard. Sl 40 something, half upgraded equipment making my way through anor londo. Got bored with no one summoning me, so i use up the red orbs.... fight a guy, good fight, edge out a win. I got over 900k souls for it. Just getting into invading lately, never got that much souls before, especially at a lower sl. So why did i get that much? What decides how much you get?

    As an invader you get 10% of the souls it would take for the host to level up.

    If you're the invader, you get ten percent of what it costs the host in souls to level up again. If you're the host, you get fifty percent of what it costs the invader to level again.

    Lol, well at least i got the same answer from you and both. Sorta like a confirmation. So i must have got a bug or something to get that many souls from invading, he couldnt have been that high to have 10% be 900k. Thanks guys

    Beating a max level player will net you just under 900k, so it's entirely possible that you did in fact beat a player at that level.

    Idk, he was good, but not that good... beat him by stunlocking him twice. Unless he had really crappy equipment on or something like that. How did i invade someone that far outta my league anyways? He would have to be in the sl 700s, i was like 46?

    Not that im complaining about getting a ton of souls for basically nothing.... just strange

    If he was in the 700s and you wer 46 then he was probably PVE and probably truly was not looking for PVP. I understand the game will only grab a match that far out of range if there are no options closer to your own level, so he may have been one of your only options. Good job on such a huge soul grab though.

    That makes sense siegfried, and thanks! It certainly made it easy to level up to where I wanted!
