Red Sign Soapstone is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Red Sign Soapstone

Not all Dark Spirits  are unsporting, or they wouldn't make use of this Soapstone.


Red Soapstone Usage

  • Leave a red summon sign for PvP play, where a host summons you as a red phantom.



Red Soapstone Locations

  • Drops from the white worm that doesn't attack you (at your right when exiting Rosaria's Bed Chamber bonfire). 
  • Watch the Fextra Video at 2hr 43mins 30secs
  • Red Soapstone Location





  • Phantoms summoned via red sign remain in Ember Form, not taking a health penalty.
  • Can still be summoned into worlds where area boss is defeated.
  • It is possible to summon Red Soapstone phantoms without being in Ember form.
  • Mound Makers will appear as mad phantoms and their sign will be purple. It is recommended to use the Red Soapstone over the White, as being summed from the White Soapstone will make PvE enemies agro on you. Red Mound Maker signs have a slight red hue to them, which lets hosts know the mad sprit won't have to fight PvE.
  • Sunlight Warriors will appear as a red phantom with an orange aura. Their signs will also have a bright orange aura. However, the sign itself remains clearly red, and can only be confused for a white Sunlight Warrior at a distance.
  • Some players in the community have decided that the community password is "vinnco".

      How does one get summoned into a players world and still be embered? Because sometimes when im summoned im embered and sometimes im not. Would appreciate if someone could shed some light on this dark soul.

        I've played this game for almost 200 hours and I never knew this item existed. I never killed that enemy because he wasn't hostile.

          When someone invades, i just stand inside the boss door and throw dung pies at them. Most bosses don't get activated if you stay a step or two beyond the door and invaders can't do a thing to you.

            Host, two phantoms and then a password summoned Red. Jesus, FromSoftware, get something right for once.
            Should of just made it to where if you have a password summoned Red = you can't get invaded if a Dried Finger is active. Then the hosts get their undisturbed fight club and us invaders don't have to deal with this cancer.

              I've now seen multiple clearly yellow signs which look identical to the warriors of sunlight phantom summon signs, but when you click them it says summon a dark spirit and summoning them lets an invade into your world. Is this a known bug or what I just don't know how you can have your invasion signs yellow/orange

                If I put down my red sign with, say, the aldrich faithfull, can I still be auto-summoned to invade?

                    Just summoned and defeated a dark mad phantom in the area outside the Sulyvahn bonfire while Mound-makers was equipped, did not give a shackle.

                      I killed the worm in the article and it didn't drop02 May 2016 11:35  

                      The worm dropped Xanthous Crown (even though I already have one) and something else, but no red soapstone. Is this a bug or intended?

                          Is the range for a red soapstone the same as invading as red? There's no info about this on the wiki.

                            If I want to farm vertebra shackles can I play with a friend? I give him my password so he can summon me with the red sign soap and then kill him, is that possible?

                                    Does anyone know if you can summon more than one Red Phantom from a Red Soapstone? 2. Then with Dried Finger, 3?That would be fantastic for Fight Clubs.

                                      I didn't want to make an account, but can someone add to notes that souls gained from defeating a host or being defeated are equal to a little over 1% of how many souls the defeated held (1.078% in my limited experiment, though it may be tiered how many you get based on how many they had, higher percentage for more souls or vice versa). BUT if you don't have to be ember-ed to summon a friend, and you become ember-ed for winning as a summon. So if you are running low on embers, you can have your friend summon you, you kill them, they pick up their souls, and as long as they weren't ember-ed neither of you loses anything. HOWEVER it is impossible for you both to become ember-ed in this fashion, as the host dies in real life. All in all they did a good job of preventing any big exploits, but I wish they would have made it a little more rewarding to win PVP, but with the summoning password system it seems anything more would be too prone to abuse.
