Talismans are wielded in order to cast Miracles. These items were not present in Dark Souls 2, but make a return here.  The most commonly found Skill among them, Unfaltering Prayer, differentiates them from Chimes and turns them towards PvP use. Not meeting the Faith requirement for the Talisman will drop the spell buff to a flat 60. (Please edit page with real numbers once faith requirement is met).

      Best talisman for 45 faith? Currently, I'm using a maxed canvas talisman but I want to know if there are better options.

        VERY useful tips: faith can be played as a super buff character, a support character or a heavy tank/nuke character there are of course in betweens. If you are not a tank/nuke chatacter i suggest going to the chime section. I have made some testing to conclude that for talismans poise wise sunlight>regular>canvas this was tested against the hollows outside firelink shrine using the heal spells since they can be held for as much as you like before casting. Anw sunlight tanks 8 hits. Regular talisman tanks 6 hits while canvas tanks 4 hits and at 45 faith for +10 catalysts testing on the big chainsaw guy in the undead settlement at the dilapidated bridge bonfire: sunlight spear does 672 up close using regular talisman 671 using canvas and 600 using sunlight. Note that for the sunlight spear tge extra melee hitbox is worth 67% of the original spells dmg if anyone is wondering so to conclude canvas has equal dmg to regular but has less poise while sunlight has outstanding poise but the other talismans do about 10% more dmg so eotger choose regular talisman or sunlight depending on preference please not this test was done in ng++ with absolutely not buff from rings any other spells. I hope this helps

          For those people still wondering:
          Talismans are the best catalysts for PvP spells. Their weapon arts will cast the spell and grand you hyperarmor for a fixed minor amount of FP.

          Not all talismans offer the same damage and hyper armor, however the Canvas Talisman is the best choice since it's the most well-rounded in terms of hyperarmor and spellbuff.

          DO NOT use talismans for buffing, healing or ranged miracles. Yorshka's Chime is WAY better for that. The only selling point of the talismans is their weapon art that allows you to trade even with greatsword users in MELEE range.

            Scaling is not that hard15 Jul 2016 11:00  

            scaling S or A doesnt seem to do much. an A scaling one got 200 spell buff in average and an S scaling 230<br/><br/>Remember in DS1 it was a huge differnce. Same for weapons:<br/>+4 at A and +7 at S.<br/>

                I can verify that the spell buff increases with the reinforcement of Talismans, Chimes, and other spellcasting gear, but how much it irises I cannot verify, nor which one has the best spell-buff endgame. Can someone testthese amounts for me and upload them? Can a column be added for spell buff to the talismans, chimes, catalysts' etc. upgrade tables?

                  Trivia: Inspired by "teru teru bozu"?22 May 2016 07:44  

                  I speak it out plainly: such things don't exist in europe. Never have. You would never find them in a game about knights, dragons and big bosomed princesses. So where does the inspiration came from? Well I saw something similar in an anime and it was called "teru teru bozu". wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teru_teru_b%C5%8Dzu

                      At this point, since I will only be using healing miracles, I will honor solaires memory by only using his talisman once I have recieved it, even if I want to use offensive miracles, do not care about stats anymore or effectiveness, just wanna carry a little piece of my old freind with me into battle with tarkuses shield and other misc memories, I will ride that struggle bus if I have too, I will bring my old friends with me to the end! Now who's with me!?

                        So it seems like, with the inclusion of talismans as well as chimes (and a couple other things too like "firelink shrine", blades of the darkmoon, etc), that they're attempting to bring DS1+2 together into a single narrative. I hope they can- they were basically two totally different games just with similar mechanics.<br/>
