I had a question for everyone. I'm new to dark souls and have decided to start on the 3rd installment. I just recently received the Red Eye Orb, so I've been using it to invade people. Here's the kicker: Instead of fighting with them, I take the opportunity to scout out the area before I proceed(since mobs won't attack), then I go back to my world. Does anyone else do this, or am I lone wolf?
Indeed I have, too. However, I wasn't an invader.
My friend, who was new to Dark Souls, was lost in Irithyll Dungeon, which I had already completed myself, but I wanted to help him out somehow.
So instead, I wrote down my Red Sign Soapstone and acted as a guide for him, and eventually led him into the Profaned Capital bonfire. There are always workarounds!
