Phantoms are NPCs in Dark Souls 2. These include all invader NPCs and Summoned NPCs. These are invaders act as Enemies that may suddenly appear as you enter specific Locations. These invasions are when hostile NPCs invade your current Location and initiate in combat once within proximity. Once an invasion occurs, a noficiation will appear mentioning that you have been Invaded by a Dark Spirit, followed by the name of the invader. You may then seek out the invader and begin Combat. On the other hand there are also Phantoms that can be summoned and instead act as allies. These phantons, invade enemies in a way and aid you in battle. Some conditions and interactions might be required before they can become available as a Summoned Phantom.

Summoned NPC Phantoms

  • Note: These can only be summoned while in human form and you will get 25% less souls while you have a white phantom in your world!

 Pilgrim Bellclaire

Drangleic Castle. Just before the Dragonraider bossfight (Scholar of the First Sin only).

 Lucatiel of Mirrah

  • Sinners' Rise (Lost Sinner), after descending to the bottom from the lift. In the back right-hand corner. May have to talk to her at No-man's Wharf or The Lost Bastille beforehand.
  • No-man's Wharf (Flexile Sentry), near the shortcut gate in the house, appears after exhausting her dialogue near the bonfire.
  • Iron Keep (Smelter Demon), right outside of the boss room.
  • Black Gulch (The Rotten), near the hidden bonfire.
  • Grand Cathedral (Burnt Ivory King), up the stairs from the bonfire.
  • In order to complete Lucatiel's storyline, the player must summon her for at least three of the five boss battles, and survive all three. Doing so is the only way to earn the trophy/achievement for completing her storyline. This can apparently be done across all playthroughs or through the use of a bonfire ascetic to fight the same boss.

  • Forest of the Fallen Giants, speak with him before entering the ambush on the lower level of Cardinal Tower, and then again after you escape and kill all the enemies. His summon sign can be found just outside The Last Giant's boss fog. Pate will not leave this area, so he cannot be summoned to assist with the The Pursuer.

      I got invaded in Brightstone Cove selldora by a forlorn and it did not say that you get invaded in there just pointing it out

        Bashful Ray (SotfS confirmed) is in Dragon Shrine, in that hidden part before the Drakekeeper Tower Knight, that leads into the tower of where the Petrified Egg is.

          I just had a red phantom in the tutorial area. It didn't have a name but it was definitely there and it attacked me. Anyone else ever had this?

            Just invaded by a phantom (?) called [Death Incarnate] which I assume was an NPC. It was teleporting around and doing weird lightning and dark magic attacks I've never seen and are not on this wiki. I managed to kill it and got an effigy plus it dropped a soul of a great hero. Has this happened to anyone? Very confused

              Sorry, am I crazy? What about Fallen Avarice? In the hallway with all the skeletons before Armorer Dennis?

              That's his name in the Japanese version at least

              • I’ve found that an easy way to deal with invaders is at range with poison arrows. The poison cuts most of their health off and they can be finished off with normal arrows. This is especially good for those bullsh*t mage invaders as they don’t like to get particularly close to you

                  Got invaded by Dark Spirit "PODERO CASTIGA" in Iron Keep, in the same room as Oliver The Collector. I was Hollow so i shouldn't have been invaded by other players right? So then who was that? He just stood there on one of the platforms and did one of the gestures over and over with his back against me. I just walked over and pushed that button which cause the platform to fall and killed him.

                    You guys missed another Phantom, if all the torches in Things Betwixt are light then a red phantom will appear and fight you. When I killed her she dropped a Petrified Something. She was wearing the Imported Set

                      In Drangleic Castle, I just ran across a summon sign for an NPC phantom called Adeline. The summon sign was right next to the Central Drangleic Castle bonfire. Her main weapon is a kukri like weapon (possibly the Shotel), which she uses two handed only. Her secondary weapon is the Greatsword. She followed me through the whole map, up to the Mirror Knight boss which she helped defeat. Her attack pattern is very agressive, because she walks way in front of you, killing everything she finds (she killed all horse-like knights in the King's Passage, while I was still standing at the entrance of the hall). She is a heavy damage dealer, but doesn't have much health (an old knight could kill her in 4 blows). I don't know if I met certain stats for the summon sign to appear in the first place.

                        It's missing Gutter Denizen, the NPC that invades you near the 20 lifegem pickup only alfter you've lit all the scones

                          in Softs you can summon Piligrim Bellclaire for twin Dragonriders (Her sign is in front of the boss door) and also Sellsword Luet in Drangleic castle (I don't remember very well where his sign is, it's either in the room with the two manikins or in the room before the Executioner's chariot in Drangleic castle).

                            Maybe an update to The forlorn, needs confirmation.
                            Im playing Scholars of the First Sin and in Brightstone Cove Tseldora, after picking up the item you have to fall in the rock platform, and falling near the sand whirlpool, The forlorn invaded. I wasnt able to kill him and wasnt able to make him invade again, so im not sure what made him invade.

                            • Okay one phantom is missing here... after you light all the torches in The gutter a dark phantom appears and give you zullie's set but with the veil....
