Invasion Not Working Fix in Elden Ring

There are a number of things you can try to fix the Elden Ring invasion not working problem. The first one is to make sure that you’re character level and weapon level are not too high for the area you’re trying to invade in. If you’re level sixty-something and are attempting an invasion in the starting area, that’s probably not gonna happen. On the other hand, people between around level sixty to eighty might have luck in Caelid. Specifically, Dragon’s Cathedral seems like a good place to go, according to this Reddit thread. Another Reddit user recommended the likes of Redmane Castle and Siofra River.

Speaking of, another thing you should definitely do is try switching up your location. Again, that will depend entirely on your level, as far as we can tell. Regardless, there are some zones that are more popular for PvP than others. For example, the Dragonbarrow West site of grace seems to be a good area, as does Leyndell. However, your mileage with this Elden Ring invasion not working “fix” will also vary depending on the peak time of your server. In other words, you’re not gonna have much luck invading if there are not many players online at the time.

Lastly, we recommend finding somebody that is running the Taunter’s Tongue item, ideally if they’re also in co-op at the time. By that, I mean you should post in, say, the Elden Ring subreddit or some other forum and basically ask if there’s anybody willing to be invaded by you. Plus, the fan base is slowly starting to agree on which areas will be PvP arenas, so keep an eye on those threads, too. If you have any other ideas on making invasions easier, leave them in the comments below!

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
