      I love pvp and have used this item a lot. I would set white signs down while popping dry finger to pass time (what ever comes first) my main question is how can I provoke and get more invaders? I love the challenge and want to find out more to get more red phantoms. Pls help

          Using a dried finger should eliminate the invasion cooldown timer altogether. The timer makes perfect sense with a solo host or a host and just one phantom trying to grunt through the PvE, but anyone running 4 players against PvE designed for one should have to contend with more than just an extra invader followed by silence for the rest of the level.

            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
