PVP INVISIBILITY
I'm so wigged out right now. I was summoned today to help a guy fight the dragon in the depths. He had summoned another person before me, so us two phantoms are to protect our summoner, right? Well, we got invaded by an assassin. He had double daggers I think. Problem is, I saw him, all three of us saw him, but then he would disapear completely. No outlining, no transparency. He was completely invisible. He would appear, then disapear, but I'm sure it wasn't lag because it was very fluid like and controlled (I think). He goes into the other room, we back out and move away. No sign of him, nothing, absolutely nothing. I leave to kill some rats thinking those two would be able to handle this guy (We're level 30s) and the next think i know, i hear that iconic "back-stabbing" sound, I stop what I'm doing and the very next thing i know I'm being back stabbed. It's like the guy teleported to me. I was far away from my party. He could have easily just killed the summoner, but he went for the two phantoms first. I'm so confused. He was invisible, I couldn't see him, and he was behind me with no tell-tale signs. What the hell? What sort of item makes you completely invisible? Isn't that cheap!? I feel horrid that my summonder died. I take pride in protecting my summonder. I know it was a bad idea to leave him, yes, that's my fault, I wont ever do it again, but come on. This assassin was so fast, so quick. It was only 3 seconds after i heard the first backstabbing that he got me. I'm wigged out, depressed, and sad. Has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone experienced a completely invisible invader???

Hacking aside.

The spell Hidden body can turn s.o "nearly invisible". That is, not completely invisible, but if it's dark and you're not concentrating really hard then yes, it's kinda invisible. With Chameleon he can turn into an object and move slowly around. Thing is, it's sorcery so I don't know if you see him wielding a catalyst.

Do you hear him running/moving? Then he could be using the slumbering dragon crest ring, which hides all sound from a player.
That's all I come up w/ for now.

Forcing massive lag from the lagswticher's end: turning on torrents full speed download/upload (depending on what kind of lag one wants), or some other way to choke the bandwidth. In FPS' and other games this usually results in teleports or some other kind of twitching of the player's character.
And when the twink wants to do something, he turns off the lag and he's back to normal.

my guess is he was a lvl 1 who used a trainer to boost his ♥♥♥♥ got into other system files and was making himself invis, lvl 1 can invade everyone if he was red, now if he was blue your summoner was in the book of the guilty and he was any thing higher lvl then your "30s" he could have been 250 just pwnin newbs...

He was red, no sound, and I was completely looking at the guy when he simply vanished. I love the full body and chameleon spells, I use them myself, but I'm weary that I can still be seen unless its dark. This guy was in one of the most lighted areas of the depths with no objects around (near bonfire actually). God... such a horrible experience. I stunted my level just so I could combat these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Get the greatest gear, enhance them, etc, and wait to be invaded or smmoned and destroy these ♥♥♥♥. Level 1 can invade everyone? That cant be possible. Are you sure?

darkwraiths invade without upper limit

That can't be fair
Ankkah Dec 23, 2012 @ 6:14am 
Yes it is fair, because on paper SL1 is drastically weaker than, say, SL120. Their health alone (if SL120 goes for the standard 30-50 vitality) has a difference of 700+ hit points.

Chess is fair game, dark souls is not ^_^

If I remember right, when you use Fog Ring and Hidden Body, you become invisible at a certain distance, that's probably what he was using together.

The wiki says they don't stack.

They used to.
Might have been patched, but in 1.05 they most certainly did.
