      I combined this with dark blade and pontiff's right eye with with a +6 sharp sellsword twinblades against the dancer boss, and got her down to half health in like 10 or 15 seconds. Just goes to show that with the right setup and the right player behind it, you can really dominate the competition.

        it also appears to be over written by Oath of Sunlight (Sunlight Straight Sword skill) (tested myself in the shrine. all buffs were removed including buffs from sacred oath when using oath of sunlight)

          Multiple effects and relatively low fp cost, but its effects are very small. Use only if it gives that extra push needed to with any of its effects (if it lets you live with a sliver, reduces hits needed to kill by 1, etc). Don't use in casting builds since you will deal more damage by casting an extra spell with the fp cost used.

            It says that it increases all damage types, does that also count for blood/poison/frost buildup or damage?

              Does this stack with War Banner buff? If so, does it matter what order I cast the buffs in?

              (for example, with SSS's buff, I need to cast that first, and then cast the War Banner buff)

                Deep Protection also stacks with Sunlight Straight Sword's buff, Oath of Sunlight. You only must cast Oath of Sunlight first.

                  sacred oath, except sacred oath is still there and this stacks with it so it just becomes ds2's sacred oath.

                    I don't like buffs. They don't last long and if you try to rebuff in the middle of a boss fight, it may cost you your life no matter how careful you are, plus it's time you aren't fighting it. is it worth the risk?

                      Hello, for some reason deep protection isn't stacking with carthus beacon. In fact each removes the other I have found some people who've noticed the same, is this acting as intended now or is it more likely a serious bug? Nothing on any offical page saying that deep protection wont stack with carthus and I always used to do it and all my buffs stayed, first thing i noticed was the 3 green arrows from deep protection dissapearing after carthus beacon was used.

                      Thank you for your attention in this matter.

                      Kind regards
