    The Gold Tracer...Oh Boy...

    Post by Jester's Tears on Mon Oct 29, 2012 3:57 pm

    Almost Instant Bleed. Easy stun-Lock. covers pretty much 180% of the player. Rapid swing. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME A REASON ON HOW THEY DIDEN'T *** UP THAT WEAPON?

    I don't see how the bleed is a big problem. But it's certainly a pain if you wish to use slow weapons, as it can quickly interrupt most slow attacks. The bleed isn't too bad though, unless you've got a low resistance?

    Yeah it can be very menacing but I don't think it's THAT OP. Sure it can stun lock somebody easily if they allow you to wail on them like an idiot. Also, it can't be buffed so luckily it can't be made any stronger without having to scale. It's a great weapon, don't get me wrong but it is not funked up by any means, just different. Also, it's a weapon that is meant to be used in combination with the Silver Tracer and that makes it a far more interesting weapon, that takes time to master in dual wielding, no block situations.

    bleed is meh, with my gear each hit builds up about one eight of my bleed meter so thats no problem at all and even if all of a sudden im about to bleed out i can just roll out of the bleed since its so damn easy(i got dks day one and ive only been bled two or three times). i usually stunlock people that just go in there spamming r1 with that thing in the forest.

    Doesn't it just have a standard bleed effect?

    Yeah it's a standard bleed but with 40 endurance you can swing away with it up to 6 or 7 swings until it completely depletes your stamina. It breaks poise after 2 or 3 hits on most players when two handed, giving 2 to 3 swings after of just pure damage and bleed build up.

    Monster against: Low Poise builds. Low Bleed resistance (I have 1500HP and the constant bleed up screws me over everytime.) . Low Vitality builds.
    PEOPLE THAT BLOCK.

    For me, fighting a golf tracer user is like fighting a buff build. I know they are going to spam, so i'm very defensive and choose my attacks carefully. Occasionally punish the aggressiveness with a backstab. I have bleed canceled so many times lately that it's becoming funny.

    It's not OP but it is dangerous.

    The bleed will get even if you're Blocking. And it builds up so fast WHEN blocking. I DON'T LIKE BLEEDING.

    theres bleed damage (whats listed on the weapon) and bleed buildup how fast it fills up the blood gauge, and the tracer has a higher than average buildup. and a great shield of artorias (from sifs soul) can negate bleed so.... your options are parry (pretty easy) or turtle with a specific shield thats conmsiderd one of the best greatshields anyway. plus spears out range it, i can roll through its spam and parry or simply blast them with spells.

    It's also good to have the bloodshield lying in your inventory.

    He said it happy

    It's a nice trick against chaos blade, lifehunt scythe and now, the gold tracer.
