so I have just returned to dark souls so i was planning on some builds so im playing the game and eventually i get invaded so I already summoned a guy so he was coming . I noticed he had the cursed great sword of artorias and kills me and him in one shot. then on another character i get invaded same thing one hit dead but this person used pyromancy used great or black flame. so are more people going through the game staying at their lvls or is there a new glitch?
im pretty good at pvp or was, took on this guy who had gravelord sword and had the grass crest sheild got quite a bit of backstabs on him and nearly killed him with the schimatar and wanderer armor and wood shield. And this one time got 6 or 7 backstabs in a row on this one guy.
They play through the game without leveling up that character, or staying at an extremely low level, in order to invade areas like the Parish, Depths or Blight Town before their prey can get equal level gear. Of course, they have near-endgame level equipment, if not maxed out completely.
They aren't glitching or Hacking, but its still frowned upon. If you see one, summon a phantom and let them fight 1 on 1. Many times the invader will leave you alone, so long as you don't interfere. They might even leave a present if they get bored.
