      I'm making a bleed build that uses both claws and manikin claws, one in each hand, so I can swap weapon arts as needed and parry as well. I just 2 hand whichever is better at tthe moment. Because of constant and rapid switching, do u think using hollow gem and carthus buff would bad? I'm determining whether to use hollow gem or blood gem.

        This gem is crap. On weapons with already high bleed the increase is negligible and it prevents other buffs. Much Better to go with hollow and the carthus resin that increases bleed. (And a high luck stat)

          This gem does increase bleed proc...just tested the carthus sword on the 8 legged cage guy. it took 4 hits to proc bleed with standard. right after i did that i infused with the blood gem and it only took me three hits to proc bleed on those guys

              This is a rare drop off the guys (with the frostbite swords) who try to ambush you just down the stairs from the distant manor bonfire. Goodluck. Credit to "cute boy420" who posted a video of this on YouTube.

                Anyone know how much this infusion increases bleed? does it increase bleed build up on weapons that already bleed? if then how much? I'm thinking of making a ninja build that has high luck and dex. Trying to figure if bleed infuse is worth it or if I should just go with Hollow infusion. (50 luck with 40 dex)
