      lol, great for pissing off pos salty invaders. Keep crying about how you can’t ambush a player just trying to enjoy pve anymore

        Only had one successful summon with this so far. Had recently beaten Clifford the big red dog in the Raya Lucaria debate hall, went"that's a good doing point for tonight" and logged out. Next day, I turn the game back on forgetting I still had the ring on and immediately started getting summoned. I was in the spot near the beginning of Raya Lucaria, in the graveyard with the big wooden bridge. Invader was running across slinging spells, but my last character was a mage build so I was used to the patterns and ran past doing a jump attack with my scythe. The giant attack radius must've psyched then out because they panic-rolled right off the bridge lol

          Multiplayer is what kept dark souls games alive for years and this sh t is the reason why elden ring is dead.

            During the big afk scourge (like patch 1.03 or something) i used to dupe hand ballistas and explosive/lightning bolts. Id get summoned to some afk losers world and leave the items for invaders to pick up and use.

            • Did a sample of the beautiful hosts I've been summoned to defend today: AFK in Dragonbarrow, AFK in Liurnia, ganking with Fingerprint cooperator, AFK in Limgrave, dead before I got to them, gankers, killed the invader before I got to them, AFK in Limgrave, dead, and lastly, AFK in Liurnia.

              What's even the point anymore? I haven't had a single encounter from levels 20 to 50 where I was summoned by someone who deserved the help. Hell, I've spent more time helping invaders kill AFK hosts than fighting the reds. It just isn't fun being blue anymore :(

                (I have not verified this, and it was more than likely just a pure coincidence.) It seems that when you are talking to Ranni after defeating Royal Knight Loretta while this ring is active you will be prevented from being summoned if you are being summoned just as you placed into the situation where you cannot leave Ranni's Rise and are forced to talk to Blaidd, Iji, and Seluvis.

                  NOTE: turn the rings OFF if you want to co-op for a boss. Never had a problem with connections until I activated the ring. You will get a lot of failures when that ring is activated and will have a hard time finishing or joining boss fights.

                    Why would anyone even want to use it? You get literally nothing for killing invaders and you know you're kind of an a hole chasing a single guy with a host and his summons

                      I leave this activated and literally chill in popular points of interest and I'll get summoned a few times but infrequently so. Less often do I end up making it to the invader in time before someone important got hurt. In short, if you're wanting some pvp best to force invade in popular areas or taunters tongue or, if none of that works the academy main gates is always busy lvls 1 all the way up to 300 as far as I've seen activity

                        This item isn’t really needed. Hosts can just summon golds or charm strong NPCs. They don’t need another advantage fromsoftware. Y’all are wack

                          This item only works when I'm fighting a field boss and have him at low hp. 9/10 times the host is already dead by the time I load in, then it's back to my world where the field boss is back to full hp and, oh look, I'm all out of flasks.

                            My only complain is how fast the blues are spawning.

                            For instance, the time I reach the host, a blue is already summoned. And once I kill him or the phantom, another blue arrives in the minute.
                            Of course, if I kill the summon + the blue, and if the host runs away to re-summon, it will happen again. Same if they are already 3 and I kill one of the phantoms : a blue arrives right away.

                            I wouldn't mind if I could count on a co-invader but it just cannot happen.
                            So I'm just a bit sad and annoyed that invasions are a perma 1vs3, especially with the current balance of the game.

                                The only reason why fromsoft changed invasions is to make the game more fun for people who dont like to be challenged in any way... back in ds3 i just played offline until i felt i was good enough to take on invaders by myself

                                  I'm having it better than I did previously as a blue. I get summoned every once in a while but I leave the thing on which leads to more frequent summons compared to the painful waiting from the last two games.

                                    this is not affected by where you are you can still be summoned anywhere. i was in moghwyn dynasty when i was summoned into castle sol in the mountaintops.

                                      I use this to punish gankers and AFK farmers

                                      Gankers because I refuse to do 3v1 but will help in a 2v2

                                      AFK farmers because I lead the red to them and refuse to fight, it’s not much, but it’s honest work

                                        If someone active the Blue Cipher Ring, it means "I don't want invaders". After invading a bit with a fair build, I wanted to see what those who invaded with me looked like, and boy I got a good laugh seeing kids using all the OP things against me lol. I would like to remind people that according to Miyazaki, invaders are not meant to win. They should be an additional obstacle, not a random kid that pop from nowhere and one shot the girlfriend who tries to spend time in coop with his man. You know, if you're ruining the experience of others, they may block you and you will not be able to invade them again. If everyone blocks you, well, it says a lot about your personality. But don't get me wrong, I have respect for those who invade while being mature and respectful of others time. The times where I got killed in a 2vs1, I just thought "well played to them" and the host and his mate often bow at me because invasions are fun when the invader is fun :)

                                          This is possibly one of the singular worst additions to elden ring. So as an invader its already bad when it is a 3v1, but then you kill the 2 furled fingers and he just summons blues on the fly without needing to do anything. This turns regular invasions into a 5v1 and with some of the AOE spam on ashes of war, its just not survivable. Garbage mechanic.

                                            Why do reds get summoned semi close to the host but blues get summoned halfway across the map from the host? %30 of my blue invasions are over before i get to the host because it takes 3 minutes of running to get to the host. Not to mention being a blue feels less like a helper/defender as it did in DS3 and now it feels like an extra ganker or another fight club member. Because reds will only invade when having a host has a summon or using an item to be invaded on purpose, the rate at which I get summoned as a blue is about once per 15 - 25 minutes. SL56 in Liurna. Blue summons get very shafted in eldin ring

                                              I honestly to god think that this system was just a lazy recycle that shouldn't have been implemented into the game. Best case scenario blues in this game are either turning a 2v1 into a 3v1 or just restacking the odds further against invaders. Though the majority of the time it ends up just being someone trying to kill reds who are trying to knock exploiters off roofs or cliffs.

                                                Remove this **** and give us a Blade of the Darkmoon style system. Blues deserve to actually be more than an afterthought mechanic for 3v1s against invaders.

                                                        You get summoned to another world as a hunter: BINGO ADDITION

                                                        The host is already dead

                                                        You spawn in an inaccessible area or miles away from the host

                                                        You spawn in a mob of enemies (such as the caelid dogs, or that giant near first step) that immediately kill you

                                                        The invader is hiding somewhere or lost or something

                                                        The invader died ages ago so your wandering around clueless until the game sends you back

                                                        You have been summoned to fightclub (rare but nice)

                                                        Connection error

                                                        The host is hiding in an inaccessible area (such as the cliffs behind first step) to farm runes from invaders leaving or being killed by hunters. F U N.

Example: my PSN account is from the ps3 days. I never got summoned as a blue phantom. Made a new PSN account and got summoned every few minutes.

                                                            Wonder if its the same for Steam and Xbox. My old PSN account has yet to get summoned once again.

There are quite a few rock formations where not only are the invaders unable to physically get to you, but they don't even have an angle to hit you with arrows or magic (and often times you can still hit them).

I've been summoned 60 times across multiple level ranges so I have some experience. You spawn a considerable distance from the host and invader, you seemingly only get summoned AFTER the Invader has been present for at least a minute, and out of the 60 times I was summoned, 40 were me being sent back immediately because the Invader or Host died the second I spawned in, 15 times i was sent home immediately due to connection error, and only 5 times was I actually able to fight. ONLY 5!!! Just get summoned as a coop partner, you'll get WAY more action that way.

As someone below said, near 1/3 or half of invasions had hunter summons (other ones we died too fast or we were 4 already). now, I was gonna try some end game pvp since I reached the end credits and decided to try the hunter ring out. I went into the zone with most coop activity for my lvl range as showed on the map, which is haligtree as of right now and received 1 call in 30 mins. Maybe hunters are getting inflated because invaders got gutted ? or idk im just writing stuff.

The item does work, it's just not common for all conditions to be met. People who do a lot of invasions will note that hunters get summoned pretty frequently.

                                                                                      So instead of 2v1 it can be 3v1 for the extra noobs ... wow.
