Having finished up most of the invasion covenants (barring Aldrich Faithful since I'm SL30), I can say this is the best covenant to wear when you're invading for fun. The main appeal for me is the worlds with more phantoms to kill, and the fact that if you die, the host gets a covenant item out of it. It's a win-win; either you get the satisfaction of taking out a host and their crew, or the host gets Estus refills and one less Shackle to farm down the road.
Being a friendly White Sign purple in Cathedral is also cool. One build I had worked around being a "tour guide" of sorts, with a Torch and Talisman to cast healing miracles (and totally not Force). My offhands had a parry shield and a Fire Dagger, while I had the Hornet Ring and Untrue Dark ring equipped. Even in basic clothing, I got great results from critting Thralls, Cathedral Knights, and invaders who wanted a piece of my victim. Every time we opened a shortcut back to the bonfire, I'd signal that it was time to fight, and even though my results were 50/50, I always got resummoned.
The amount of friend requests I'd received at the end of my few days on this character genuinely makes me happy. There's really no reason to have anything else equipped if you're playing general multiplayer, unless you're pure co-op and want to Praise the Sun at the end of a great boss battle.
Take care, folks, and best of luck farming or playing <3
