    Greatshield of Artorias - blocking bleed?

    Post by Zechk on Thu Jan 19, 2012 9:26 am

    Does the Greatshield block bleeds the same way it does poison and toxic etc?

    I can't test this at the moment.

    I have seen other people say that bleeding still affects you even when blocking with the GS of artorias, but I can't test it really either right now..

    Yeah same. Anyone know for sure or care to test it? I won't be able to for at least a few days.

    Would be easy, just have to go to firelink and poke the skeletons sad

    The GS of Artorias blocks all negative status effects except those caused by Area of Effect.

    Does that include dung, or is dung an area of effect? I was tossing dung at an artorias turtle last night, and I really couldn't tell whether I was just wasting time (and dung). He didn't get toxic'd but he was jumping around like he expected the dung to affect him.

    does this include swamp? Because if I can kill the poison from the swamp then I know what I'm forging first.

    I wish you could stand on it and paddle about using a Demon's great axe as a punting pole big grin

    No, it does not block swamp poison as it's an area of effect type thing.

    no, it doesn't. you should try to use Ring of Evil Eye for negating swamp. simply kill mosquitoes with bow regularly and the only effect of poison is that annoying sound. hp bar will be full most of the time.

    It's environmental. I don't think anything can completely block dat stuff, like lava, poison swamp, ect.
