You can use the Voodoo Doll to provoke activity from the evil spirit to help in your quest to identify it and exorcise it.

How to Use the Voodoo Doll in Demonologist

You can use the Voodoo Doll by following these steps:

  1. Find the Voodoo Doll on the map
  2. Pick up the Voodoo Doll
  3. Push the Nails into the doll one by one.
    • This will cause a reaction from the ghost. However, what part of the Voodoo Doll the nail goes into when pushed is random. If a nail hits the doll’s heart, then you will trigger an instant haunt.

To protect yourself from the evil spirit should you trigger an instant haunt, you want to have a Crucifix nearby before you start pushing in nails. To use the Crucifix during an instant hunt, you need to equip it. The Crucifix will be destroyed if it protects you from an evil hunting spirit. However, it only has one charge, so grab another if you use it.
