        Got invaded but Creighton earlier. As he's spawning in I attack the red eyed corvian and run back to where the invisible dudes were. As I turn back around, I see Creighton fade back into the visible obscuring ring range as he sprints off the cliff he spawned in on. Took out the corvian while laughing my ass off about Creighton wandering off the cliff.

          He would not invade me until I fought him with Sirris on the bridge, this page does not list this as a requirement though, so perhaps there is alternative condition(s) that stop him from appearing. It would make sense if his invasion was revenge for protecting Sirris though.
          Also, he's a pushover. With a fast-ish weapon and enough stam/regen, you can just stagger him with one r1, and pause long enough for your next r1 to interrupt his retaliation/roll/estus. Felt cheesy, but invaders should get no sympathy right?

            At SL 5 with +0 weapon I just poisoned him with rotted ghru dagger and slapped him silly with dark hand. So easy.

              On NG+4, attacking Creighton with Sirrus is the equivalent of attempting to cut someone with a foam sword; you do pretty much no damage. Creighton has two estus flasks, and a divine blessing, allowing him to heal 3 times. Don't forget about Sirrus, glass of the Sunless Realms, who will take more damage in a single second than you in your entire playthrough.

                  Ok he is pretty easy if you do this.
                  Just a +3 lucerne with great magic weapon will stagger them long enough for you to keep on hitting em and if you do it right you can kill em before they heal

                    I talked to Anri, went down, Creighton invaded, I dodged and felt over the cliffs :-( ... After reloading, Anri was gone, I went down again, used an ember, but Creighton did appear anymore. ... Because Anri is gone resp. dead?

                      Did I have to be online to make him invade my world!? Cause I swear I'd done every single possible thing of the quest:
                      - Talk to Anri: CHECKED
                      - Talk to Sirris: CHECKED
                      - Dreamchaser's Ashes: CHECKED
                      - Give to the Handmaid: CHECKED
                      - Talk to Sirris 2: CHECKED
                      - Kill the Beast: CHECKED
                      - Lit all Bonfire nearby: CHECKED
                      - Defeat Creighton: CHECKED
                      - Talk to Sirris 3: CHECKED
                      - Area Boss Killed: UNCHECKED

                      And all I can see at the giant grave is nothing so mind helping me a little bit here? Oh, I also kill the assassin at the Church BOnfire too, did that make any consequence!?

                        Invaded following these instruction this time. But not the previous playthrough when I missed the mould maker Covenant. Maybe a requirement.

                          This pisses me off, between the two of them it was CREIGHTON who canonically survived? The guy who fell into Pate's trap like a dumbass? Maybe they just didn't want two patches in DS3 at once? But i liked Pate as his own character, not just as a spiritual nod to patches... They totally could've made patches's storyline SO much cooler/funnier if they'd made a competition between the two. Maybe they end up asshole friends in one of the endings, maybe in one ending one disappears and is implied to have been taken out by the other? Though i guess it'd have to be pate that dies since Patches makes it to the ringed city? Though there isn't really any evidence that the ringed city is in the future, right? "A few trees appear when Filianore awakens!"? Ok... so maybe her illusion was covering them? Nobody assumed sunless Anor Londo was in the future when Gwyndolin's influence was removed... "everything's dust!"? Okay, the world is canonically reaching it's end at the start of our ashen adventure, maybe all the areas on the outskirts of the Kingdom of Lothric's boundaries are turning to dust? We see Lothric castle in the distance and Lothric castle is where "the lands of lords are converging", so maybe all the lands that are converging are all that's left of civilization and are PHYSICALLY being pulled towards Lothric (like entire pieces of land are moving towards a center, maybe has to do with tectonic plate movement?) while as everything on the OUTSIDE of this circle being pulled towards the center is just barren dust?

                            Sirris is super weak, so you know what I did to destroy Creighton? Took my Refined Lothric Knight Greatsword and infinited him
                            In case you're wondering the way to infinite thins with the LKGS is simple: fully charged 2 handed RT/R2, and then walk over to them and fully charged 2 handed RT/R2 again, repeat as many times as necessary, if done with enough time in between each attack it'll keep doing the thrust attack, and that attack knocks most enemies down, just keep repeating and their ass keeps getting put on the ground before they can even get up. Stamina is an issue though so a Chloranthy Ring and/or some Green Blossoms will certainly help, but as long as you can keep using it ASAP, you use it. I've infinite'd Havel before with this strat too, though Stamina is obviously an issue so he's gotten out of it because I backed up to regen Stamina.

                              I highly recommend using some weapon that deals poison. It will it him alive, when I killed him was with poison dagger and a frostbite sword. Worked wonders.

                                This son of a b**** INVADED me during the Twin Princes boss fight, killed Sirris, killed Orbeck and and let me fight the boss all alone after I finally killed him. Guess what happened then...I have no idea how, even after I've done all Sirris quest line and killed him several times, this b**** came back from the deepest hell to haunt me! So if you intend to summon Sirris for this boss fight be carefull.
