      Ah, the black salt crystal, the invader's equivalent to the alt+f4. Only to be used in the hotbar for bad invaders who know they can get dumpstered easily. You know exactly who you are

        If an invader uses this to ditch a gank squad then its totally fine. Still run into salty invaders though who, on the brink of losing a duel, will run home so I cant get an ear; *****in sucks.

          While I am not A blue sentinel or darkmoon I still think that if an invader uses this item the blue should still get the covenant reward while it is a scummy thing to gank it is an even scummier thing to black crystal out on a blue (or even send a blue home)

            General tip: best used when the people in the world suck, not when they're better than you. Hiding host? Group of dedicated gankers (there to kill phantoms, not clear a level)? Summoned by a useless player? Summoned a useless phantom? That's the use. Please ruin less duels with this because you were outplayed, just take the loss with grace

              Seems like some fails to fully read the description. This item doesn't remove invaders, but only summoned players (blue or gold). This also allows you to return to your own world if you have been summoned or if you invade another's game. (This is why you can use it when invading as Aldrich Faith.) On console, when using it with only an invading player in your game as the one living, a pop-up appears telling you that there's no player to disconnect. With that said, I have seen plenty of PC videos and post that state that, on PC, people are able to use the BSC to disconnect even invaders. (I also see a lot of comments about it being an hack/mod)

                  I like making gankers chase me all the way the the Aldrich faithful boss door and black crystal out to waste their time.

                    Anyway a red could use this mid-fall after hes been pushed over the edge to avoid dying? Just had one get pushed off but he somehow "returned to his own world" before he was supposed to die

                      The description should say "Made from black salt, this crystal activates when a dark spirit throws their controller at a wall."

                          I was invading in the area after Pontiff and found a guy who was standing unmoving. Obviously, it was suspicious so i went to him expecting a trap and i was right, as soon as i tried to gesture he attacked. we traded a few hits and then he chugged so i did the same and then he ran away. after a while i find him again standing still. i also stood there and we spent a minute without moving and then HE USED BSC AND KICKED ME OUT OF HIS WORLD. can anyone explain me what happened? its the first time i see something like this.

                            *****ing hate this item. I've had so many hosts summon me just to help kill a red then immediately send me home right afterward. Or I've summoned phantoms and had them BSC out in the middle of a boss fight. They need to make some changes to how this item works.

                              So I get invaded by a red phantom in the cathedral of the deep chapel. We were both primarily sorcery casters. We battle it out 1 v 1. I start winning. He starts chugging estus. The jokes on him though, because I have twice the estus that he does. After he finishes all his estus, he runs through the doors, hides around the corner and black crystal's out. I was so mad - the least he could do is accept his loss. Red phantoms hardly risk anything when dying; a host can lose his embered state, his souls & have to waste estus (when PVE is your current focus)

                              It is unfair that an invading phantom can crystal out, but a host can't send him home. It would be more fair if a phantaom that has taken a certain percentage of their max health from player damage, that the crystal is disabled for the duration of the invasion.

                                I summoned Holy Knight Hodrick on Road of Sacrifices and he used the Black separation crystal immediately once summoned. I have no idea what happened and have never seen an NPC do this before. Anyone care to shed any light as to why he did this?

                                  This is a pretty controversial item (obviously), so here are situations where use of this is valid (or at least somewhat valid)(invaders apply to Red Soapstoners as well).

                                  General: dark spirits/phantoms have bad connection, Hst has bad connection, keep invading/being summoned to the same person over and over, and generally not wanting to be there.

                                  As an invader: when being ganked, Host is hiding, or keep invading someone you particularly do not like.

                                  Phantoms: Host is doing something random and non-productive, Host sucks balls at staying alive and keeps dying and summoning you.

                                  Host: phantom is doing nothing

                                    Was earning Sunlight Medals the other night helping out the Dancer battle when the d-bag I helped black crystals me right after I deal the killing blow to the Dancer. I go home with no souls and no medal...What a d-bag move!

                                      It's *****ing dumb that you can be staggered out of this, the amount of times I've tried to black crystal out of a gank and just been *****ed is unbelievable

                                        A hacker removed my black separation crystal from my inventory (along with all my pale tongues). Is there any way to get them back?

                                          Feels good to do it to blues when I waste their time going through the level for ten minutes and luring to enemies. Especially with the new update that summons two blues. Invasions aren't all about winning people, it's all about slowing the host down and stopping their progress.

                                          Plus I just like denying smelly ganking blues their ears.
