For the Dark Souls III variant, see Red Eye Orb (Dark Souls III).

The Red Eye Orb is an online play item in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Online play item. Invade another world. (Only Covenanter can use the item while Hollows cannot)
Defeat the master of the world you have invaded to acquire humanity.
The Darkwraiths of Kaathe use this orb to seek humanity and plunge further into dark. Perhaps they are more human than we?


Granted to the player by Darkstalker Kaathe upon reaching Darkwraith covenant level +1.

General information[]

The Red Eye Orb is very similar to the Cracked Red Eye Orb, in that players must be unhollowed to invade another world where a player is present in the corresponding area. However, it has an infinite amount of uses and requires membership within the Darkwraith covenant.

The level range for invasions by Red Eye Orb is 10% lower or any level higher than that of the player's. Only those that are unhollowed and have not defeated the area boss may be invaded.

Connection requirements and tips[]

Method of connection Invade other player's world.
Covenant restricted? The player must be in the Darkwraith covenant.
Other conditions to use The player must be in human form (reverse hollowing).
Conditions to find players The host must be in human form and the area boss in host's world must be undefeated.
Spawn location Corresponding spawn location.
Tips for successful use The player cannot invade others much further below their level, so they might want to restrict their soul level.
Other Has a fairly high success rate and is considered one of the better invasion items. Cracked Red Eye Orbs work the same way, but are not covenant restricted.
