Elden Ring's massive open world of the Lands Between is sometimes dark and full of terrors. With incredibly difficult boss fights and even the first "real" boss in the form of Tree Sentinel giving players a lot of trouble, asking for help shouldn't be looked down upon. That's where Elden Ring's unique multiplayer and related items come into play...well, at least some of them.

In this guide, we focus on all of Elden Ring's multiplayer (MP) items and their effects, from items essential to co-op play to PvP-centric items players can acquire.

First off, there have been some server issues resulting in players being unable to summon others in Elden Ring. Therefore, at certain times, you might not be able to utilize Elden Ring's multiplayer.  

To use most of Elden Ring's multiplayer items, players will need to learn how to use Summoning Pools via our step-by-step guide.

In short, to activate a Summoning Pool in Elden Ring, players will need to interact with small, grey Effigies. Once active, players can use most of Elden Ring's multiplayer items. Note that there are some that can be used anywhere, which is what the next section of our guide is for.
