      This thing got buffed. Lasts very long now and doesn't suffer from diminishing returns. SL 35 +5 weapons power within + Lothric Knight UGS w/ Gold Pine and I get 632 AR. Great Club I get 501...pure physical...SL 35...+5 weapons...GG.

        This spell is great for invasions. I found that victory in an invasion was more about applying enough damage at the right time than who can drain the most estus. Invaders don't win the battle of attrition, they need overwhelming force. This gives that. Between the stamina buff and the damage boost, if they don't run, you can easily drop someone in fifteen seconds.

          ''Removes 30% of your hp over the course of the duration.''

          This can be used at low level builds if you use your stats right:

          TLDR: Always have 10 vigor and unembered
          Max heal while in power within 10 hp per second: Bountiful Sunlight, Sun Princess Ring, any Chime weapon art. (invasions at around undead settlement because level 21)
          Nullify power within damage the cheapest way: Bountiful Light, Sun Princess Ring (invasions in high wall of lothric because level 11)

          I did not put blessed weapons in there but they wont heal you almost at all because you need to upgrade them to make their healing delay better. You can also wear full thorns armor but hey that's just being an ass Kappa

            Power Within was my favorite buff in DS1 and seeing it return in DS3 was a great surprise.... till I saw the stats. 15 seconds is way too short and the damage buff is minimal compared to a sacred Oath + Deep Protection combo. Plus the later lasts much longer. Increase the duration to 30 seconds and I will consider using this spell again, otherwise it is a waste

              Went from SL 190 to 208 farming these proofs (ítem discovery 471). I'll consider that the bright side because i only so it for the achievement.

                This hasnt been tested and it may not work at all so if someone could test it that would be great. The game isnt avalible to me right not to test it but ive done some research online. <br/><br/>Ive been trying to find a way to use this in my build without taking any damage and i think ive found a way:<br/><br/>reqirements:<br/>1000 hp (no more, but less is okay)<br/>3 att slots<br/>a lot of faith, 35 at minimum <br/>any chime <br/>a blessed weapon +10<br/>sun princess ring<br/>lingering dragoncrest ring <br/><br/>After (or before?) casting power within, cast bountiful sunlight and then cast gentle prayer with your chime. For this to work you will have to keep the chime in your hand until power within runs out, then you will have to cast power within and the prayer again but the main miracle will keep going. By having all the things above equipped and the miracles running, you should be replenishing about 17 hp per second and losing 15.

                  15 seconds is too short. Reduce or remove the stamina regeneration and make it a 60 second buff like most other buffs. 30% HP loss is fine if its over 60 seconds.
