General Information

  • Increases all damage by 40% and stamina regeneration, but constantly drains HP at the rate of 1% of your max HP per second.

  • Damage taken per second does not increase as you upgrade your Pyromancy Flame
  • If you are using the Ring of Favor and Protection, Tiny Being's Ring, Mask of the Mother and/or being Cursed, the damage received per second will be based upon your modified max HP (i.e., your base max HP plus/minus the bonus(es)/penalty from the ring(s)/mask/status). For example, at 50 VIT with 1500 HP, equipping the Ring of Favor and Protection will increase your max HP to 1800. This means you will lose 18 HP (1%) per second until the duration ends or you die.
  • You can use Power Within to increase your damage output so that you can trigger the Overkill mechanic for a 20% increase in souls obtained from enemies
  • Although the buff is working, and you will do extra damage, the "Status" menu does not reflect this. Example: Right hand weapon 1: 320 damage. When you cast Power Within, Right Hand Weapon 1 will still show 320, but you will be doing more damage.
