      Tried a dried finger run at SL125 meta as a solo host hoping for utter madness, and High Wall was amazing - never went more than 3 minutes without two people trying to halt my progress. But then after High Wall it immediately went almost totally dry until Pontiff. And Pontiff is just Pontiff, usual meta***** - none of the craziness of trying to clear a level with actual major challenges in the way. I'm not sure if doing a dried finger run "normally" from low SL and progressing up will yield more action and just no one is invading at the meta anymore, or if the dried finger just doesn't do much for solo hosts. In both cases, sort of sucks. Popping a finger should swarm you with invaders whether you're solo or not.

        This item is useless on an sl1 run, no one ever invades and you never see any summon signs that aren't NPCs.

          Using the dried finger also boosts your hidden stats quite a bit. When you're in a tough area give it a try

            Does this have any effect on my summon sign? Does it allow me to be summoned by a greater range of users?

              Only the manliest of men can use the fingers in the crucifixion woods and clear the area. Way of the blue is acceptable for this challenge

                I cannot buy this item, it shows up as out of stock at the handmaiden and I have not previously purchased it, has anyone else experienced this glitch?

                  I for one am tired of everyone that summons me using this stupid finger only to get two phantoms and then getting invaded 5-8 times in a row, please PLEASE don't forget that you get invaded easier using it! I only have at most half the estus you have and I am NOT ready to fight through every invader on the planet.

                    Does it work if you have already defeated the area boss? Wanted to fight invaders at Ariendal chapel to see how long I could last but remembered you can't be invaded after killing the area boss. Does this solve that issue or do I need to NG+ and get there and not kill Friede and Father Ariendal?

                      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.
