Similarly to Homeward Bones, the Darksign is used to teleport the player to the last bonfire lit or rested at. When activated from the items menu or the player's quick slot, the player's character crouches down and is encircled by a red ring before being teleported. Once the player has used the Darksign, the souls that were previously held will be gone forever and no bloodstain will be left behind; however, the player will remain unhollowed. It takes a few seconds to activate, so using it in front of an enemy can be dangerous.
- The Darksign is automatically activated upon death.
