      If Oolacile sorceries simply manipulate light, perfect invisibility should be possible, because you're bending light around yourself, not altering your metaphysical composition. Yet the spell description claims perfect invisibility is impossible due to the risk of dissipation. Nevertheless, you can turn your weapon completely invisible, and furthermore Crossbreed Priscilla can turn perfectly invisible without any risk of dissipation. How would merely refracting light around yourself cause you to dissipate, especially if you can do it to something else, and other entities can do it? So... either Oolacile sorceries actually do alter metaphysical composition - which, though giving an explanation to why you can perform it to inanimate objects and not biological ones as well as why Repair is an Oolacile sorcery, is contrary to the stated lore and doesn't explain why Priscilla can do it flawlessly at-will - or the description is lying, presumably to give a faulty, lazy reason why complete invisibility is denied to the player (which would be avoidable by allowing one to be invisible while still and transparent while moving/attacking, a sophistication in coding that even the original platforms were well beyond capable of supporting). It's just another instance of several inconsistencies, flawed logic, plot holes, and poor development in Dark Souls.
