Lower: SL – 15 – ( SL * 0.1 )
Remarks: Affects Blue Sentinels and Blades of the Darkmoon
PvP Dark Spirit Invasion SL : Invader Level

Remarks: Mound Makers
Covenant Invasion (defend territory) SL : Host Level
Upper: SL + ( SL * 0.1 )
Lower: SL – 20 – ( SL * 0.2 )


Legacy Table (pre patches)

  • Min/Max is given as the Host's min/max level relative to the invader's or phantom's level.
Condition Min Max
Summoning a White Phantom, Warrior of Sunlight, Mound-Maker or no covenant Host - 20 Host + 20
Defending Summons of: Blades of the Darkmoon or Blue Sentinels Host - 10 Host + 30
Territorial Invasions by: Watchdogs of Farron or Aldrich Faithful Host - 10 Host + 40
Invasion from Warriors of Sunlight or no covenant Host - 10 Host + 30
Invasion from Mound-Maker Host - 10 Host + 35

 

Weapon-Based Matchmaking

Dark Souls 3 uses Soul Level + Upgrade Level to determine multiplayer ranges.  If  a player has a weapon at +10, they can be matched with players who have +7 or more. If a player has no upgrades, they can be paired with players with up to +2 weapons.
Players have deduced that weapons that only go to +5 operate as double their numbers. So +1 is +2, +2 is +4, etc.

*Even if you no longer have a weapon of the max level you managed to upgrade, the game "remembers" what is the max upgraded level you had.

Host Highest Upgrade

Guest Highest Upgrade

+ 0

+ 1

+ 1

+ 2

+ 2

+ 3

+ 3

+ 4

+ 4

+ 6

          " If a player has a weapon at +10, they can be matched with players who have +7 or more."

          I think it means +8. I thought it was -2/+2.

            Why have they not fixed rewards for playets who summon those using a red soap stone? If you win you get nothing, if they win they get depending on covenant. shackle, ect. The host should get the same type of reward based on covenant. Keep in mind the client can be embered and have the same health and flask or more being 20 plus higher level. Now why would anyone bother. Go to the pvp session if thats your thing.

              If you want to summon a friend, decide and use a password and wait your or their sign to appear. If it's not appearing, you or your friend are not embered, the password is misspelled on either ends, you're accidently offline somehow, or the area boss is already defeated. The host cannot summon anyone if the host already defeated the area boss. If you or your friend is signifiantly a higher level and has a fully upgraded weapon, their attack power will be scaled down bit so they won't one shotting everything. Got any more add?

                    I spent several hours getting to the end of the game as a SL 20 to become an anti-twink, just to have a +2 mailbreaker and now needing to restart.

                      This is horse crap... i have a lvl 422 cant be summoned or summon. I think this system is annoying. At least make a patch to nerf the game if you solo bosses. Well 345 hours i wont get back

                        Does the matchmaking table round up or down ? For instance, if I'm at sl134 the lowest I can go is sl120.6 wich is eitheir 121 or 120.

                          I'm still not following the table, say someone is level 160 would they be able to play with 140's and 180's PVE and PVP? And is it limited in any kind of way via like convents that I'm looking at? I mean I don't understand the formula at all never been amazing at math so. Anyone got some insight? Appreciate it ahead of time.

                            Does applying a password still lift the weapon based and soul level matchmaking ranges? I wanna play with a friend that just recently started the game but we were unable to find our summons.

                              Are the weapons an additional filter on top of the Soul Level or are weapon upgrades integrated into the overall calculation with Soul Levels? I.e. someone with full weapon upgrades can be matched to players with no upgrades but a higher SL.

                                I dont know about rings after the patch, hopefully they included them because they are the main, and really only, items that give low lvl hand-me-down pvp'ers a real advantage. I tested a lvl 35 build w several end game armors, one of my favs dragonslayer...and paired with friends to compare numbers. The difference in these "boss OP" armors and the armor you can start the game with was only about 10 dmg roughly with base wpns/+1s. The way you build those first 20-40 levels is MUCH more important than equipment (if both wearing heavy armor, ect..not saying eqp. isnt important, but if comparibly wearing same stuff build has more significant impact). Rings and pots, however, can completely ruin pvp. I miss the old days when potting took time, pvp is a challenge; you vs them. I think only 1 pot should be allowed when vs another. Where's your honor? Anyone can win popping 8 pots....stop being a #%@, stop mob hiding all day, stop potting (I never pot unless the other person does), come face me as a man with what hp we start with and thats it.

                                P.S. Bragging w emotes when you kill someone is part of the game, but when its 3v1, don't get carried away...it was 3v1!
                                Good hunting everyone

                                    Oh, the defend territory calculations are off. From apparently increased the upper limit a faithful/watchdog can invade. I was SL 48 with a +6 and invaded a host who was SL 80/+8 as an Aldritch Faithful.
