      This thing got such a big nerf from the original. In ds1 power within could be acquired practically as soon as you got out of the asylum, and it also had better effects. For this one, you have to progress through most of the game to get it, and it only increases damage dealt by a lower amount than ds1. Still a pretty good spell though.

        Wait... does this increase spell damage as well? Only AR is listed, but I swear that this spell increases the damage of my other spells.

          Even though it's had a 20% nerf from Dark Souls 1 (which increased ALL damage by 40%), this spell remains one of the best in the entire game.

            Cheap, powerful and let's you really hit hard and fast. I wear the lingering dragoncrest +2 ring to get as much mileage out of it as possible. This spell rewards ruthless in-your-face punishment. The kind that makes chuggers weep and dc. Pair it with perseverance and you can trade profitably with almost any weapon in the game.

              if you use these while dual wielding greatshields of glory they actually become manageable because of the stamina regen and extra ar

                Pretty fun as a bloodlust type spell for Ultra's, since they can get insane damage and badly needed stamina regen at the same time.

                  My favorite spell in the game, good for literally any build, since that pyromancy flame doesn't take up any weight, and the requirements are close to nothing.

                    Why nowhere is anything about the stamina regen? I mean ingame.) here you wrote it. I never knew. Just testet it in compirson to deep protection (made a weapon and Pyromancy dmg tests) And omg its almost double as fast as with deep protection. Just wrote normal is 45 per second, and this gives you 30?! wzf that's veeeery nice! :)

                      blessed +10 Lothric Knight Greatsword + blessed +10 Rapier + Sun Princess Ring + Sacred Chime of Filianore WA + Bountiful Light with this is quiet good. I used this combo for all the PVE and PVP.

                        So this spell has nothing to do with the spell buff. If that's the case then I'll use it with white hair talisman to use it then heal myself.

                          Tips for any fellow glass cannon bros use replenishment and cast power within 2 times, once after replenishment, and once after first power within runs out and you won’t die. Then repeat the process if necessary.
