Beckoning Bell

Beckoning Bell

Beckoning Bell

Great old bell discovered in the old underground labyrinth.

Its ring resonates across worlds, and the first hunter used it
as a special signal to call hunters from other worlds to cross
the gap and co-operate.

A human must use Insight to ring this uncanny bell, but the
benefits of cross-world cooperation are many.

Usage

  • At the cost of 1 Insight, ring the bell to beckon other hunters who have used a Small Resonant Bell into your world to assist you.
  • While standing still, rings will appear to pulsate around the user.

Notes

  • Beckoned hunters will be seen by the Beckoner as either Co-operators or Adversaries depending on the memorized Oath runes of both parties.
    • If the Beckoner has memorized Corruption and the beckoned hunter has memorized Radiance, the beckoned hunter will appear as an Adversary.
    • If the Beckoner has memorized Radiance and the beckoned hunter has memorized Corruption, the beckoned hunter will appear as an Adversary.
    • If the Beckoner has previously entered the world of and slain another hunter and the beckoned hunter has memorized Hunter, the beckoned hunter will appear as an Adversary.
    • If the beckoned hunter has memorized Impurity, they will appear as a special Co-operator called a Confederate.
    • If none of the previous conditions are met, the beckoned hunter will appear as a Co-operator.
  • Once used, the expended Insight cannot be recovered by any means.
  • Can only be used in areas containing a boss. Some areas require you to activate certain events before beckoning can occur.
  • A Beckoner can beckon a hunter that has a Level within a range of 10 + 10% (always rounded down) of their own Level.
    • i.e. a level 27 Beckoner can summon a Co-operator between levels 15 and 39, inclusive.
  • A Co-operator will appear in a Beckoner's world at the location where the Co-operator was standing in their own world at the time they were beckoned.
  • Co-operators will remain in a Beckoner's world until the Beckoner dies, the Co-operator dies, an area boss is defeated, or either hunter uses a Silencing Blank to end the session.
  • The item's effect will end if the user dies, exits the game, rings the Small Resonant Bell, rings the Sinister Resonant Bell, or uses any teleport mechanic (Lamps, Hunter's Mark, etc.).
    • If the user avoids doing any of those things, the effect will persist, allowing only 1 Insight to be expended to continuously beckon hunters in multiple areas.
  • While only two (2) Co-operators can occupy a Beckoner's world at any given time, the item's effect will continue beckoning new/replacement hunters for as long as it remains active.
  • Online Player Items require a fair amount of proximity between each hunter. If a Beckoner and potential Co-operator are too far away, the beckoning will take a while to occur.

Bugs

  • Connection Bug: If you suspend Bloodborne for any reason or set your PS4 to rest mode while Bloodborne is open, the game will not report as such, but you will essentially be offline, disconnected from the server. If you are spending a long time looking for a person to beckon or trying to be beckoned, this is the reason. Close the Bloodborne app, and restart the game to restore your connection.
