          Overpowered for Vilhelm; Makes him roll-spam away from you, so just put him between you and the cliff and you’re good.

            For anyone wondering, the line about pine resins over riding the buff isn't true if you're buffing a main hand weapon with the banner in your off hand.

              Ok, check this out:

              The weapon art takes the slot of a weapon buff, so go ahead and infuse this. Because it gets an "s" in faith with blessed, and blessed adds physical, I went with that.

              Then it stacks with sacred oath. Then it stacks with deep protection.

              So, with all that up, +9 cause I'm stingy with slabs, my character with 37 strength, 20 dex, and 45 faith (weird numbers, I ran out of respecs for this play through) I was getting 441 pure physical AR.

              Add a Leo ring and black iron greatshield to ensure I can get counter hits on deflections, and I think this is a very respectable poke weapon. I'd still rather use my Lucerne for style points, but this is good for a buff build.

              • The buff seems to apply to the non-hostile undead between where you meet the pyromancer Cornyx and the boss door. This could be attributed to the non-hostility towards the player just as NPCs are buffed until they become hostile. However, both black knights within Smouldering Lake receive this buff even while they are attacking you. If this points out something intentional, then this could be material for lore.

                  Will it override an ally buff? Say your friend uses a pine resin then you WA, do they keep the resin buff?
