No, typically invaders (red phantoms of ill intent) are there to do everything EXCEPT help the invaded. Not sure if invaders can even damage mobs because in the many times I've been invaded, I've never seen one try. At most, they'll try to kite you into mobs to make beating them that more difficult as they don't aggro mobs like the invaded does. And As far as I can recall, invaders can't enter a fog wall, so can't be in a boss fight with the invaded regardless of their intentions. Not to be mistaken with other "phantoms" that aren't invading, but were summoned into your game to[i/] help and can enter boss fights with the person who summoned them.Random Souls question (I know), but I just saw this
And it made me wonder if it's common, if even possible, for an invader, to HELP the player they invade? I know you can just call for help, but was curious if invaders, following "proper invader etiquette" will actually try and help you out with douchebag bosses.
I never understood the whole "etiquette" thing with Dark Souls' online play. The community decided at some point that you're supposed to bow or something before initiating combat, but it's like "fuck you, dude; I was playing my game peacefully, and YOU decided to try and fuck my shit up; I owe you no courtesies or formalities. Invasions aren't a gentlemen's duel; they're effectively a breaking and entering, and I'm protecting my shit!
