Really wish there was some miracle boosting armor, like Sorceries have Dusk's Crown
Is there a reason the Black Knight Glaive (Halberd) isn’t pictured among the Black Knight weapons that do a bonus 20% to demons?
I know it doesn’t actually drop from a Black Knight in this game, but shouldn’t it still count?
DS2 is way more varied on special effects items
I really like the garron greatsword but I feel dirty for using it
DS3 really screwed us in the weapon catalysts department, only good looking one is the demon scar, really miss the BLUE flame from DS2...
Ethereal Oak Shield also heals you at a rate of 2HP/second
Thorns Armor does not do bleed buildup
The Black Knight Glaive should be included in the Black Knight Weopens category
The Man-grub's Staff spell damage scales with luck.
The Dragonhead Shield deals fire damage.
The Ghru Rotshield is infused with a poison infusion.
I wish this list included more. Example, Havel's set reduces stamina recovery.
this page is missing Corvian Scythe, it builds up bleed on yourself with every hit
In game, the noticable poise difference for the lothric longspear is +6, not plus 15. Sad
While the Ethereal Oak Shield provides health regen, I don't think it truly counts as blessed infused, since its damage doesn't scale off faith, and white-eyed skeletons killed by it will still reanimate.
Rose of Ariandel + RoSFB + Morne’s Ring + Dark Clutch Ring + Blindfold Mask + Lifehunt Scythe = total, merciless agony
Do these items have to be used or simply equipped for the effects
I believe the Old Sages Blindfold boosts pyromancies doesn't it?
Anris sword gives a regen as well.
Spider shield increases Poison resist
Why is Symbol of Avarice not listed?
farron greatsword also deals bonus damage to abyssal enemies unless that has been proven otherwise
What is with the corvian scythe? It is building up bleed
Why the ***** is the only weapon that casts miracles dlc? What a gyp
Would anyone count spell parry as a 'special effect'?
Keep Up The Good Work
wheres yorshka's spear
First - thanks a lot for this page!
Second - Did someone tested the dexterity-scaling on pyromancies with Demon Scar?
what about the great corvin scythe? it inflicts bleed aux to the wielder with each hit...but nice work though! thank you.
Omg to the people that contributed to this page you are so amazing! Thamk you!!
Thank you for making this page. Was hard to find this type of info via google.
