      PSA about this thing:

      If you use the Homeward Idol at the very beginning of the game (before getting disarmed by Genichiro), you will return to the well you've started with a FULL VITALITY BAR, thus saving pellets and a single Gourd use if you want to beat Genichiro for the first time.

        Yeah, I learned about the lack of i-frames the hard way trying to bail out of a fight with a Headless. Should probably go see a proctologist

          Using Homeward Idol removes any of your active balloon buffs, making it a bit of a pain to use on farming runs for fast return to your idol.

            Using this item does not make you lose experience points or sens — contrary to Dark Souls or Bloodborne.
