      Does this thing black list you from the world you leave by using it ? I was trying to invade a friend during his playthrough, i made sure all the requirements to invade him were always met, i once used the black crystal to leave his world and i could never find him again, despite being both overlevel for the area so i couldn't find anybody for minutes. Eventually i did found other people, often 3 to 6 times the same people in a row actually, but once i used the black crystal in their world i never found them again too.

        Unironically takes more skill than just just plug pulling. At least you need to create some distance to pull a BC off.

          Man I’m just trying to get Darkmoon Blade. Once I do I’ll never do pvp again and you’ll have one less “gank” or whatever tf it is in the community. This game’s pvp sucks balls and the community is toxic af for a game that’s 90% pve

            Whenever I get summoned into a fight club, I strip and show that I'm only using a bow. I drop an Ember for my would-be opponent and the host, and then I bow and crystal out. I know I've got virtually no winning chance being bow-only and unstable internet when more than three people are there, so I'd rather leave peacefully than subject everyone else to that annoyance. If I can help with a single invader for someone else, I'll gladly do so, but I know I'm beat in a fight club lol

              If i ever find myself summoned into a gank squad, either i let myself get killed or bc out of the sht that ruined pvp. I can help ppl get through a difficult/tedious area or boss, but i ain't babysitting them. So many advantages to the host makes me wish friendly fire was a thing.

                Reading the **** in this comment section makes me want to use this item out of pure spite for the people here. Comment sections on the internet are a disgrace, I swear on god.

                  Anytime a host tries to black crystal an invader out of their world, a loyal darkmoon knight goes hollow. Think of the knights, don't be a ****ing dumbass.

                      "ThIs ItEm Is OkAy BeCaUsE iT lEt'S yOu LeAvE gAnKsQuAdS". A common defence of this items I hear when I get annoyed at dark spirits sprinting the **** away from a 1v1 in to mobs to bail because they got absolutely dumpstered. You only have this item in your hotbar as a cheap bail option when you're getting outplayed and you know it. And I don't even get the whining with invaders rolling up in to gank squads. If you can't adjust to the varying nature of the pvp in dark souls, what are you even doing here? In my personal experience while invading, gank squads are way more entertaining to roll up in to because it requires you to be able to think on your feet and have some level of competency in the game, as opposed to fishing for 1v1s with your meta build you stole from some youtuber where you don't even understand why its good. TL:DR meet every invading challenge as it comes and take a loss with dignity without resorting to the coward separation crystal

                        Was a sunbro helping people through bosses. Had a guy black crystal me immediately after beating Oceiros for him, denying me my precious sunlight medallions. So I put my sign down at the Untended graves, confident I would see him again. Sure enough he was the first person who summoned me there, and as we passed through the gate, I sat down in the path of the dragon and watched him fight. As it dawned on him that he was now fighting a buffed boss solo, he tried to kite the Gundyr into attacking me, again and again, but Gundyr knew what I had been through and denied him, yeeting him into the graves with his foot. In his final breaths he was met with my hot dungpie upon his face.

                        Don't be like this to cooperators.

                          So, ganking somehow is ok but black crystal out of a gank is wrong? How about your alt + f4 once your 3 phantoms dies? We don't talk so much about that, huh?

                          And blues, fck off with "i can't get the covenant reward" bs, you ll only get what you want after you work for it, not before. It doesn't matter how much you wait; if the host already has phantoms, use this and get out.

                            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 cant use this item when im invading as watchdog, but weirdly enough when invading as aldrich faith, i can use the item to return.

                                        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."
