There is no ascetic roof loot after the Prowling Magus and Congregation boss.
So if i use Ascetic the place where i use it is Hard or full game get Hard mode.?
only the place. Each bonfire has its own enemies and boss (most of them)
Really wish I knew that burning one to respawn giant lord would affect all memories of ancients... Had to get all the giant souls on ng+18 difficulty in regular ng lol
So the effects of an Ascetic are only useful in one area?
Try reading the article.
Don't they also up the chances of invasions?

I think not. Ive never heard of this.
There is a glitch with these where if you kill an invader and then immediately burn an ascetic (before you get an effigy) then it will perform the animation for burning, but there will be no smoke and nothing will actually happen, but your ascetic still gets used up. Happened to me after I killed Gully outside the hidden bonfire next to the Rotten and immediately burnt one. (Xbox One)
