One of the fun ways to use the multiplayer options in Elden Ring, is to do invasion of other players. While the world of this game is already riddled with terrifying and powerful bosses, you can level up the challenge you are facing by inviting players to invade you and enjoy PvP fights. But, what if you don’t fancy being invaded by other players? Can you avoid invasions by turning the options off via Settings?
How to Avoid Getting Invaded in Elden Ring?
To avoid invasions in Elden Ring, you need to play offline. Head to Main Menu > System > Network > Default Behavior > Play Offline.
There is no particular setting available that lets you turn off invasions specifically and keep co-op options on. You can still enjoy the game, though, which is primarily a single-player title with more than 100 hours of gameplay. Players don’t have to worry about others coming in and killing you and the difficulty will stay.
If you change your mind and want to invade other players, you can do this if you are on the same platform. You need to use the Bloody Finger multiplayer item to attempt an invasion of another player’s world. If the invasion is successful, you need to defeat the Host of Fingers. You can use Finger Phantoms as items during invasion multiplayer games. Plus, you can also attempt to invade the same world you have invaded before.
With the Taunter’s Tongue, you can call for others to invade your world. You can get invaded without a Furled Finger cooperator present. It will also reduce the duration of re-invasion and let a second invader join in.
If you need help, you can use the White Cipher Ring which will automatically request a hunter from another world to help you out when you are invaded. Similarly, with the Blue Cipher Ring, the wearer becomes “ready” to answer if someone asks for help in another world.
