Attempts invasion of other player's world

Bloody Finger is a Multiplayer Item in Elden Ring. Multiplayer Items allow players to interact with each other in various ways, including leaving messages for other players to read, co-operative gameplay and competitve gameplay like PVP.

 

Item for online play.
(Can also be used from the Multiplayer menu.)

Attempts an invasion of another player's world.
If successful, you will arrive as an invader (Bloody Finger) with the objective of defeating the Host of Fingers of that world.

Glistening blood has been siphoned into the nail of this finger. Its sickly pale skin feels nothing now, but the nail still aches with sweetest pain.

 

Bloody Finger Location in Elden Ring

Where to find Bloody Finger:

  • Travel to Rose Church After defeating Godrick the Grafted and visiting the Roundtable Hold for the first time.
  • Speak with White Mask Varré in front of the church.
  • White Mask Varré will give you five Festering Bloody Fingers and ask you to invade other worlds.
  • Invade at least 3 times. You do not need to successfully defeat the host; simply leaving with the Finger Severer is enough.
  • Return to the Rose Church. Varré will give you the Lord of Blood's Favor and instruct you to soak the cloth with a maiden's blood.
  • There are multiple ways to complete this step;
    • Option #1 - Chapel of Anticipation
    • Option #2 - Church of Inhibition
      • Travel Northeast, shy of the Grand Lift, to the Church of Inhibition.
      • In the Church of Inhibition will be a dead maiden.
      • Interact with her corpse to soak the Lord of Blood's Favor in her blood.
    • Option #3 - Killing a Maiden
      • Find and kill Hyetta.
      • Soak the Lord of Blood's Favor in her blood.
  • Return to the Rose Church and speak with Varré.
  • Hand over the Lord of Blood’s Favor.
  • Video Location

Upon completion of the questline, Varré will grant you the Bloody Finger.

Elden Ring Bloody Finger Guide

  • You can attempt to invade another player's world.
  • If you successfully invade, invasion multiplayer will begin, with you as a Bloody Finger.
    (Your goal will be to defeat the Host of Fingers). 
    Killing the Host of Fingers will grant the invader a Rune Arc and a Furlcalling Finger Remedy
  • During invasion multiplayer, you are provided three Phantom Bloody Fingers. Using these will spawn you at another location in the same session.
  • Doing the quest and consequently receiving this item makes your eyes slightly redder. This effect can be disabled in the mirror in Fia's room at the Roundtable Hold.
  • The maximum number of invaders is 1 unless the host is using the Taunter's Tongue.
  • By default, invasions can only occur once the host has summoned a cooperator. Solo invasions cannot happen unless the host has used the Taunter's Tongue.

      You do NOT need having killed Godrick The Grafted to get Varre to spawn at Rose Church. You only need having killed your first demigod.
      For example, I skipped all the bosses and most fights, grabbed both half seals to Dectus, going straight to Altus Plateau to trigger the festival to fight Radahn, I'll then need any one other of the demigods downed in order to reach Leyndell in order to proceed further, besides the point however.

        Either I'm insane or the eye alteration effect for doing this questline was different a few months ago because I remember my character having pitch black eyes with red pupils, not this reddish hue we have now.

        Can anyone else confirm?

          Nothing like using the finger, waiting to finally invade, wait longer for the load screen and after all that your stuck trying to get to a ruin farmer. Lame

            In my playthrough Irina got killed. Any way to use her blood when she is already dead in order to get the bloody finger?

            • Edited this page to remove mention of this item being involved with the “age of absolute” ending. It is not a real ending, and as per Garden of Eyes’ video on the subject, was just an alternate name for the Age of Order.

                  I made a +3 RL 40 to invade stormveil, SPECIFICALLY to avoid carians and moonveils, but apparently they dont care if your invading ng+7 or not >:(

                    Does anyone know if what "other" things besides level are things for invasions? Like does weapon level or picking up certain weapons push you into higher level ranges like in DSR or FS3?

                      So I completely skipped stormveil castle in my low lvl pvp character because I wanted to be able to summon in that area and idk if its like past fromsoft games where when the boss dies co-op is turned off, I killed morgott and got a talisman pouch, then the bossfight was just missing from infront of stormveil. The bloody finger dude was there without me killing godrick so I guess if you really dont want to you can completely skip godrick, he doesnt move after godrick dies just after you get a great rune or two?

                        i thought the red eyes from doing varres quest would be glowing, similarly to the dragon or frenzy version, but they don't.
                        My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.

                          So there is no difference between this and recusant finger then? I just did a couple 9f invasions and the rewards were the same.

                            They made it way too hard to get. Unfortunate, I'm a vet at these games and I'm losing my patience now trying to soak this stupid cloth with no easy way to get to any of the locations

                              How many souls do you get for a successful invasion? I know you get 1/4 of a bosses souls for co-op so I am assuming the same thing for pvp.

                                  Buying Festering Bloody Fingers is not necessary to complete Varre's questline, as he gives you 5 of these when he asks you to invade players.

                                    Am I the only person who invades to scout the area when i'm stuck since other enemies cant attack me? Thats how I find some stubborn graces in the game.

                                      Do the 3 invasions part of the Tanith questline count for the 3 needed to get the bloody finger from Varre?

                                          Is it possible to get this if I don't want to invade but do want the red eyes to overlay the dragon eyes? I specifically want the eyes from this, not standard red eyes. And will I have to use cheat engine if I killed Varre when he gave me the first 5 fingers?

                                              Elden Ring was my last hope for a good PvP game... after finding out how invasions work, and playing through some, I now know it's over. No more good PvP games left.

                                                Man invading in this game is awful. Who wants to 3v1 every time with people spamming moonveil and rot breath.

                                                  Phantom Bloody Finger is only available while in a Host world. You get 3. You use them as a last resort to get a “redo” or something like a “second round” against the same Host world you were just at. It’s like a respawn so you get essentially 3 tries if you are really having a hard time beating that particular Host + Phantoms

                                                    If invading from Scenic Isle in Liurnia, there’s a good chance you’ll invade the world of an NPC named “threadhewn fool” who uses a flail, great shield, bow, and rapier with extreme skill. He dodges almost all projectiles and is proficient at guard counters. I know it’s an NPC because he does the same emote and drops a rainbow stone on your corpse when you die. I’ve tried beating him a few times now and it’s always the same spot, same tactics, same emote.

                                                        You can also just pick it up in Mt. Gelmir in Volcano Manor (long room, where you pick up your assignments). You can reach the place without any fight on a brand new character, just get the Dectus medaillion and use the huge elevator in Liurnia of the Lakes.

                                                              • Fromsoftware clearly does not want players invading anymore.

                                                                I've been playing since Dark Souls 1 so trust me when I say the Reds have never been at this much of a disadvantage. The Host has infinite summons plus blue phantoms on standby, you can get hit by mobs sometimes during their attacks, not to mention good squads can just whittle down your stamina with magic (which everyone seems to be using for some reason) and constant pressure until you're a sitting duck. Pair that with constant disconnect issues and it really seems like there's no point to invading other than trolling.

                                                                You aren't even rewarded with much if you kill the host. Just a Rune Arc and a pitiful number of Echos. You get more out of helping people kill bosses. Invasions are dead.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

After the guy by the rose churc gives you five, just use 3 or 4 of them and then he'll give you a white cloth. After that go to the north western area around there. There should be a place called the 4- something or other. Open the highest waypoint and kill the boss. Just after that will be a dead body you can use to bloody the cloth he gave you. Turn the cloth in, join the covenant and then hell give you the finger.
