General Information Edit
Restores the player back to human form, allowing their health bar to recover up to its maximum value and allowing the player to see and interact with summon signs.
Burning Human Effigies at bonfires temporarily decreases the player's world priority in the invasion selection process as well as disable the ability to summon other players except NPCs; this includes disabling the ability to use Cracked Blue Eye Orbs and Cracked Red Eye Orbs. It takes 30—60 minutes for the burning of a Human Effigy to run out. This only applies to the area in which the effigy was burned, and the player must remain in that area for the effigy timer to count down. Time spent outside the area will not reduce the timer.

Effigies can be difficult to aquire, but they are not the only way to become human again. These things can also reverse Hollowing:
- White Sign Soapstone: Being summoned as a phantom can turn the player human, but multiple sessions may be required. Defeating a boss is required.
- Small White Sign Soapstone: One session is enough to turn the player human, even if he's completely hollow. Killing a boss is not required.
- Shrine of Amana: The player can find a shrine above the fourth bonfire down a short path that will turn the player human for free. This method only works if the player has already used all the effigies they have acquired. Dropping effigies on the ground to remove them from the player's inventory will not meet the requirement of not having effigies.
- A Ring of Life Protection or Ring of Soul Protection will prevent the player from Hollowing after dying as well as other benefits, and can be repaired for a respectable amount of Souls when they break upon death.
- Unlike humanity in Dark Souls human effigy can not be used as a healing item.
