      I'm getting insanely frustrated with this.. I have a dried finger buff active permanently on my account, even dying fast traveling and creating new characters doesn't fix it, getting 3 V 1's in ever single area with no cool down. any way to get rid of it?!?

        So, if me and a friend want to summon a third person(who's a random and not a friend, just to make that clear)
        Do we have to remove our password to find his summon sign? Or will we still be able to summon a random phantom without removing the password?

          For those wondering, you can use this item infinite times. It will allow you to summon a third phantom in most areas, but also allows you to be invaded by another. You can summon up to 5 dark phantoms if you use it. It loosens SL restrictions, making it so you can be invaded by someone who is around 70 levels higher than you. In Anor Londo and the Crucifixion Woods, you can only summon two phantoms, although the 5 dark spirits can still be summoned just fine.

            I tried mulltiple times to host a fight club. But i can only summon 2 phantoms and i popped the fingers before that. It is a bug or something?

              If you use it in a low level area (High wall of Lothric) you can get people invading you with end game gear, seems to remove Soul Level Difference. Tried and tested

              • Three invaders in Anor Londo21 Apr 2016 04:29

                My bros and I discovered that if you use this item in Anor Londo, you can get invaded by three phantoms, usually two Aldrich Faithful and one red phantom, but we saw that in the inverse at least twice. <br/><br/>side note:<br/>If you want some decent PvP/ganking, get a good crew and wait at the bottom of the ladder at bonfire with the Crocodogs. Drop prism stones (we did this in an arrow) to let invaders know where to go, pop a seed, and just wait. Invaders will usually stagger in one at a time, and won't really be able to escape. We had 17 kills, 4 people who quit (all of them hard quitting or using the crystal), and 2 who were killed in PvE, in 30 minutes.

                • Some locations only allow for 1 other phantom(?)18 Apr 2016 01:08

                  So I think this item has a condition to it in some areas. I had a party of four on Xbox and we were trying to get together as usual and it seemed to not work as intended in the Road of Sacrifices. We could only summon a second phantom AFTER we used the Dried Finger. We thought maybe it could be connection based but after multiple attempts, the same result was replicated. I really don't know why this is, either it was a bad time to try and summon three phantoms or the person who wrote the items description didn't get the memo that certain areas only allow for one other phantom.<br/><br/>Can someone else confirm this?

                    It is possible to play 4vs2 (4 friendly vs 2 enemy)<br/>If you want to play 3 Friends you have to do it this way, Summon two of your friends first with password. Then Use the dried finger and then remove your password and let your friend place his sign somewhere hidden so you can find him first. It worked for me

                      In the online information section it says...<br/><br/>It is possible to have anything from a 3v3 to a 1v5 scenario.<br/><br/>But it does not say in what context this can happen. Can you please add more information in each section to add more context to the mechanics when possible?<br/><br/>Such as how the 1v5 can happen, 3v3. I'll be checking covenants to check more out about this. :3
