And I have no qualms about using every dirty trick I know because every dirty trick I know, I know because an invader used it on me! XD On the other hand, I don't hang out alive in the Forest or the Kiln. If I'm alive, it's because I'm trying to summon and make progress in the game. If I get invaded, I deal. *shrug* If I get invaded when I have phantoms with me, then the invader has to deal. I'd be perfectly happy for them to use the black separation crystal.
I got invaded earlier while making my way through Anor Londo, but a minute later, I see the "invader vanquished" message. He hit me up on PSN a few minutes later, saying "with a name like yours, I just couldn't do it." (pills4louis) Finally, that stupid, impulsively-chosen name paid off. Way overleveled now, though. I beat Biggie & Smalls in under two minutes, and the night before, I beat Priscilla with seven 2-handed hits. Didn't even get her tail, and that was the fourth time I fought her. I was SL 70-something. The first two times, she killed me. Third time, I got her patterns down but avoided killing her because I wanted the tail dagger. Fourth time, I still wasn't hitting the tail enough by the time she was almost dead, so I ultimately said "fuck it" and finished her. SL 84 or 85 now, I think. Up for any co-op, if you're within that range?
