Sunless Talisman

Lore

Talisman given to the knights of the Sunless Realms, who serve the nameless moon.

Scales with intelligence, which is rare for a miracle catalyst, but makes it compatible with Dark. In the Sunless Realms, this fact is related first as an initial warning.

Skill: Unfaltering Prayer
Temporarily increases poise while casting miracles, preventing enemy attacks from interrupting prayer. Works while equipped in either hand.

Notes

Because it scales with intelligence, it has Dark scaling, making it the best talisman to cast Deep Miracles with, even if you don't have any investment into Intelligence at all.

Upgrades

Unique weapon. Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.

Damage:

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are A / B / C / D / E:

Each weapon has one or more Physical damage types:

  • Standard
  • Strike
  • Slash
  • Thrust

Certain enemies are weak or strong against different damage types.
See the damage formula for further details.

Aux Effect:

The Aux Effect stat dictates how effective the weapon will be at causing the effect. The Aux Effect stats for a weapon are A / B / C:

Critical

Damage multiplier when performing a backstab or riposte. Value of 100 means no extra damage.

Spell Buff:

Damage multiplier applied to the base value of a Spell. This value scales depending on the primary stat of the Catalyst, i.e. a Catalyst with Intelligence scaling will have its Spell Buff rise as the player's Intelligence rises.

By default the value reflected in the infobox and the upgrades uses 60 Intelligence and/or Faith.

Stats Needed:

The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The stats required for a weapon are A / B / C / D:

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Intelligence and/or Faith will reduce the Magic/Fire/Lightning/Dark damage of the weapon.

Stat Bonuses:

The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus damage you do with the weapon, based on the associated Stat. This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill). See Scaling for more information.

The Bonus Stats for a weapon are A/B/C/D:

Damage Reduction:

The Damage Reduction % of the weapon. It dictates how much damage the weapon mitigates while blocking. The Damage Reduction % stats for weapons are A / B / C / D / E :

Stability:

Determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack. A higher stability also allows you to block stronger
attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.

Durability:

The durability of the weapon.

Weight:

The weight of the weapon. Note that carrying over 70% of your Equip Load will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going
over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
