Cracked Red Eye Orbs are online play items in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Defeat the master of the world you have invaded to acquire humanity.
The Cracked Red Eye Orb allows players to temporarily imitate this ability normally limited to the Darkwraiths of Kaathe.


General information[]

Cracked Red Eye Orbs are identical to Red Eye Orbs, except that they are single-use items and that players do not need to be in the Darkwraith covenant to use them. When one is used, the player attempts to invade another person's world as a black phantom. Like Red Eye Orbs, the player must have reversed their hollowing in order to use a Cracked Red Eye Orb.


  • The level range for invasions using the Cracked Red Eye Orb is the same as the Red Eye Orb; 10% lower than that of the player's or higher.
  • Level range is not accounted for when invading players within the Darkroot Garden forest, so care should be taken when invading there at low levels.
  • One Cracked Red Eye Orb per playthrough can be traded to Snuggly the Crow for two Purging Stones.
