    I love Power Within

    Post by wolfboy on Sun Nov 11, 2012 5:02 am

    I've been having a blast tonight in the forest with Power Within... I've never used this spell in PVP until today- it's awesome! I'm surprised I don't see PW more often...

    Its probably the pursuers that make PW seem good, most people who've come at me with melee always seemed to have killed themselves without any effort on my part.

    me to, its one of my favorite pyromancies in the entire game. when i use it with crown of dusk and bellowing dragoncrest ring, i can do over 1000 damage with a great fireball and 600 with the great scythe's two handed R2. this thing is OP.

    I may start using it as a last resort sooner or later. I like it at times, but it seems to get me killed more often than not.

    You can't underestimate what that extra boost can do, I've been killed through a stone Gshield by a PW with full CMW Dusk crown Bellowing ring combo. If you plan to win within 30 seconds PW is a game changer, If the fight lasts over a minute your dead.

    PW is awesome in the Forest, since most gankers are super aggressive (and overconfident). If they are turtling, have an elemental shotel as backup.

    I've been using power within lately and it works well for me. Usually the opponent doesn't turtle too much, especially if they're using a buff themselves.

    Its most useful against gankers something about being in groups makes them want to kill you as soon as possible and not wait you out like a lone player would.

    I have some dream about hitting someone with a PW boosted tempest with bellowing + dusk or some such. That would probably OHKO a lot of builds and is possibly doable in the forest.

    But I don't like the slow death aspect at all, especially as an invader.

    I obviously don't use it all the time... but in my opinion sometimes it is useful to be able to take someone or something out in one hit- especially in fights against gankers... If they're ganging up on you, PW+Dusk Crown+ most spells can take out a phantom real quick to even the odds...

    I also figure in most ganking situations I'm probably going to get killed in less than the amount of time it would take for the spell to kill me anyway...

    Power within is best against either Gank squads or high vitality characters. Beyond that, the effectiveness of it is how well you can actually dodge. The only thing is that gank squads will rarely ever let you get it off, quite a few are far too paranoid.

    If someone walks into a spell like Tempest, they probably deserve to die.

    But it IS pretty fun in a 1v2, because it then becomes a 1v1, with some soiled pants for the guy who just lost his teammate.

    PW and melee can be effective you just have to be hyper aggresive and have a shotel ready for turtlers!

    Its also pretty fun to use RTSR with PW....you really scare the crap outta people when it triggers!

    I don't usually use PW unless I'm in the forest...but I did have some fun with it in the burg one night.....

    This

    If I see any sort of buff (PW, SLB, DMB) I back the hell off.

    By the end of one minute the PW guys are usually down a significant chunk, and more often than not will also pop/try to pop a humanity/estus. Look Skyward
