Recusant Finger Guide for Elden Ring

  • Using the Recusant Finger attempts invasion of other player's world.
  • After successfully invading, the goal of the invader is to eliminate the host of the world.
  • If the invader is successful in killing the host, or the host dies while the invader is present, the invader is rewarded with 1x Rune Arc and 1x Furlcalling Finger Remedy in addition to runes.
  • If the invader fails and dies during the invasion, they will drop their runes as if they died in their own world. ( Runes previously resting on the floor before the invasion will be lost)

 

Elden Ring Recusant Finger Notes & Tips

  • If they host enters a boss arena, the invader is sent back to their own world.
  • The invader does not need to strike the killing blow on the host of the world. If the invader is simply present in the world when the host dies, the invasion will be considered a success.
  • Invaders are considered allies by normally hostile NPC enemies. This can be used to even out fights against hosts with many summoned players.
  • If the host dies shortly after dying as the invader, the invasion will be considered a success and the invader will be rewarded and not lose any runes.
  • Killing any summoned players will grant additional runes.

      from what i can see, this makes you a litttttlllleeee bit less red when you invade, compared to the bloody finger items. though maybe im just stupid and its the exact same.

        You can invade as a recusant or a bloody finger. You can be summoned to invade as a duelist as well. There can only be two red phantoms if the host uses the taunters tongue while a finger remedy is active. The taunters tongue also allows the host to be invaded regardless of having summoned a co-op. The max number of players in any one world is 5. 1 host, 2 co-op (gold or blue), and 2 adversaries. The blue and gold phantoms can be attacked and killed by npc and red phantoms. The red phantoms are allied with enemy npc, but not to each other red phantom if present. Some red phantoms don't want you to have any part in the rewards for killing a host, as you may encounter a tag team.

          Kinda seems like they originally intended for there to be covenants.
          Recusant finger - aligning with Volcano Manor; hell you even get rewards doing the ai invasions
          Bloody finger - Varre / Lord of blood faction; pretty much Rosarias fingers
          Hunters - obviously blades of the darkmoon, hired help pvp cov
          Furled fingers - coulda made them white but nah, sunbros. Just no medals this time
          Frameworks already there for covenants but for whatever reason it looks cut at the last minute and all the rank rewards were scattered into the open world

            *Recusant vs. Bloody*
            Currently functionally identical.
            Gives you the title of recusant during Invasions. Appears to have been added to ensure the player had access to a reusable finger, had you killed Varre early on.

              "An heirloom of the lord of the Volcano Manor, bequeathed to Tarnished who have become family." Considering how many recusants have become family, Rykard really has a lot of fingers!

                Wait so if you use this, will it say "Recusant" instead of "Bloody Finger" before your name to people you invade, or do any red phantoms show up as "bloody finger" to the host?

                  why can someone summon something other than a co-op partner after i have invaded. i should only have to deal with hunters after taking out a furled finger.

                    Does anyone know if both a Recusant and Bloody Finger can invade you at the same time? If so, can they fight each other?

                      Maybe I'm imagining it, but it feels like my invasions with the Recusant Finger are more likely to have me facing Hosts that are using Taunter's Tongue. Really seems that I get more solo hosts and more obvious gankers. Again, probably my imagination, but hey, you never know.

                        Should be able to invade players who use a rune arc, as it stands now all pvp is just a gank fest. Seriously why is it even allowed to have a host, 2 summons and a hunter vs a single invader, having 2 summons should at least prevent a hunter from spawning, leaving that space to another invader, and it should be impossible to disable the effects of the taunters tongue when currently invaded to prevent gank traps, and over leveled summons need to be nerfed more when summoned.

                          Spamming this def gets u invasions faster, pretty sure, alternating bloody and recusant does that instantly

                            are there any story conflicts if I get and use this item to invade players, but don't advance the volcano manor story further than just acquiring this item?

                              The description says you drop your runes in hosts world, if this is true then there’s almost no point since you can invade as a bloody finger and not lose anything, can anyone confirm if this is the case?

                                Difference between this and bloody finger seems to be the reward. Bloody finger invasions reward a rune arc and a remedy. As a recusant you also get runes.

                                  I’m not sure if I understood the situation right, but I invaded someone with Recusant finger, but there was already a Bloody Finger there and he was attacking me, for some reason? And yes, if I remember correctly, his attacks were hitting. So I’m assuming the difference between the Bloody and Recusant fingers is like invading as a Dark Spirit and Mad Spirit in Dark Souls 3. Unfortunately, there’s no color difference between the phantoms in this game, but I believe it provides the same function as the Mound Makers for DS3

                                    one potential difference between this and the bloody finger is that this not only shows you as a "recusant", but it also allowed me to invade the same world as another recusant, and i was able to attack the other recusant as if they were an enemy. unsure what killing another recusant gives or if the same could be said of the bloody finger

                                      About the confussion: Bloody finger and Recusant serve same function - allows you to invade players that HAVE USED Furcalling Finger Remedy. As of 03/07/2022 there is no functonal diffirence. There might be with patches/dlcs in future, if previous games is something to go by then we can expect factions to be implemented. Upon use of either finger you will be searching for eligible worlds to invade, note you will be invading same "area" your character is located in. Hence why you, most likely, will see host and cooperators instead of having solo 1v1 invasion experience. Hence you are most likely to get fast invasions near boss rooms, as that is where most people apply remedy in order to summon other players prior attempting boss. Note that upon entering boss room, usually, host will transfer to a new area, canceling your invasion.. I am not sure, as in where is "gentleman's club" for pvp, as in how ds1 had the forest and ds3 had the balcony behind pontiff (area where community "decided" people would loacte themselves in order to easily mathmake pvp). I personally had quite good luck in Caelid in shrine of beast, place where Black Sword Kindred boss is located as it seems high level people frequent that area for pvp. I might need confirmation on this, but I would assume it is possible to invade as recusant a world invaded by bloody finger and vice versa, yielding 3 way battle instead of 2 way (2 invaders should be hostile to each other, I think)

                                        If this is reusable as the comments say, someone should probably correct the infobox
                                        (Not gonna bother registering, myself)

                                        • are we still not healing in pvp? This game is different than dark souls. You get 2 shot regularly, fights only last like 10 seconds, I think healing should be done when possible in every fight.

                                              This says you invade as a Recusant, and the Bloody Finger you get from Varre says you invade as a Bloody Finger
                                              They both let you invade repeatedly, so I don't know what the difference is between invading as one or the other

                                                Question. Does the host still need the summoning pool thing to be active in order to be invaded? And if so.. if you dont enable them am I right in thinking you can just.. Never be invaded?
