Feasting Branch 5

Preacher's Right Arm is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.



The dessicated right hand of a white-faced locust that rose from the abyssal swamp, that happens to perform as a catalyst for sorcery.

The white-faced locusts were meant to beckon men to the dark with sermons, but most of them are unable to think past their own stomachs, the unruly mob!

Skill: Feasting Branch
Use souls to weave a sharp branch to fillet prey. Can be used repeatedly.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Has 229 spellbuff at 60 Intelligence.
  • Has the highest spellbuff of all staves when used with 29-34 or 44-52 Intelligence.
  • Has slightly lower spellbuff than the Court Sorcerer's Staff otherwise, and lacks Steady Chant. This potentially makes it a bad choice for mages whose playstyle depends on these two things. It is more suited for battle mages however due to its Weapon Art.
  • Works well with Farron Flashsword for expanding its melee movesets.



 

Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: From the Ringed City Streets bonfire head into the swamp and head straight. Head past a few Locust men and head to the right of the huge Judicator enemy in the middle. There will be a corpse hanging from a structure here. Be careful as it is surrounded by hidden Locust Men.

      I'm surprised this isn't mentioned here, but the WA is incredibly powerful both in DPS and FP efficiency. If the opponent is stunned by it, you can just unload your whole stamina bar for a few thousand dmg - in other cases it's still a very powerful and very quick attack.

        My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink.

        I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up.

        I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.

          Does less dmg than farron flash sword but can be used in combination with it. The fact that this has limitless stun guarantees it will deal eventually more dmg than farron flashsword. Can be used to remove farron flashsword if needed and save 1 spell slot. Has maybe the 2nd highest spell buff in the game. Making it easily the most optimal choice for pure int builds. Spell buff is 2nd to court staff and moveset is second to immolation tinder. My personal favorite.

              Those locust guys are annoying, and have*****loads of health at NG +5. Five or six hits with a weapon at 1100 AR required to kill them. Annoying glue farting attacks. The aforementioned grab attack.*****ty branch stabbing rush attacks. ***** 'em. Even more annoying than the spinning miracle turtles. Ringed City is a great location for torturing yourself, true Dark Souls experience. Every enemy will ***** your***** up and mercilessly punish the slightest mistake.

                Gotta hand it to FromSoft, this is one of the oddest items throughout ALL of their games and also comes with a stick!

                  It would be amazing if you could grab players with these and bite them if you equip them in both arms.

                    Is there any reason for this to not drop from locusts? Why wouldn't we rip their arms off. What is stopping us?

                      I have discovered that with enough stamina and intelligence you can one shot any player. After this weapon, DS3 PvP was destroyed, or what was left of it anyways.

                        Use this weapon, and exercise your right to bear arms. If you use it, you're armed pretty well, but be sure to keep your enemies at arm's length with it. You should use heavy arm-or with it as well.

                          what if this was just both arms and they were int scaling paired hammers that couldn't cast spells but still do the weapon art?

                            How I think this went down: Miyazaki lifts his head from a Thai hookers ass covered in cocaine and screams "Severed arm of an insect PREACHER of the dark, stupid weapon art does MAGIC damage not DARK damage for reasons, usable as a CATALYST to cast SORCERY SPELLS and zero ability to perform MIRACLES or DARK spells because Preachers, outperforms a SORCERER'S CATALYST casting sorceries because Japan is best, zero scaling with FAITH that a PREACHER would actually have because the bugs haven't leveled up faith... MAKE IT HAPPEN! BANZAI!!!", then dives back into the cocaine. And nobody in the company has the heart to tell him it's a stupid idea because they've made so much money in spite of the stupid ideas he's already had...

                              If you wield 1 in each and the WA will alternate between left and right. Not sure if it does more damage but it looks funny

                                Weapon Art damage depends on Strenght, more than Intelligence. I don't think INT even matter for that matter.

                                  When offhanding the Preacher's Arm, one can buff their mainhand weapon and the Skill will benefit from the Buff; Feasting Branch becomes really quite lethal. Only tested this with Crystal Magic Weapon, haven't checked whether it will apply Poison/Bleed as well.

                                    For everyone wondering what the NPC flies say when using this:
                                    They quickly say ''I SHALL PARTAKE'' and with that they mean the ''and let the feast begin''.
                                    I don't know what they mean by that, but apparently they want to eat stuff / humans / everything and thats why they shout ''i shall partake''.

                                      Fun fact: Instead of the normal 2 hits combo, this thing's weapon art can actually hit your opponent 3 times before they can roll away. Good to know c:

                                        A lot of people are gonna hate this comment.
                                        So I was helping my bud through the pontiff area and it was the average coop souls experienced besides me making hand puns the hole time. I not even a soccer but I used this bloody weapon because its funny killing something with a decapitated arm, of course it was hard to get kills. Even harder because some reason has a summon My health was only like 500-600 (thats how it was even when I had a ring of favor +3 on) and I basically would get two shooted by everything meanwhile my friend has a full bar to 1100-1200. I'm confused why my health is so low did the recent update change the health for summons or some stupid*****. Did the ganking of low levels finally hit or is the game making it harder for me since my character I was using was soul level 198 and on new game plus 2. If someone knows why my health was so low let me know because I don't want to helping him out with aldrich with soul level 20's health bar.

                                          If you equip one of these in each hand and then use its art it acts more like the locust's alternating stab attack.

                                                    This weapon is broken af on a high-stamina 50+ int build. You can spam the weapon art repeatedly (which activates and hits the target in half a second) and does ludicrous magic damage, not to mention the stunlock potential. I combo'd the ***** out of the dual-greatsword Ringed Knight just by spamming the L2 button over and over and over. Good staff. 10/10.
