    Nah don't bother.
    I could also check all armour pieces on wiki, if I've had the time.
    It was more of a "why so few" and not "name all" question.

    I do read the descriptions. But maybe I've asked the question the wrong way.
    What I've had in mind were things that have aditional efects that are not shown on the details screen. Things that other games would call magical armour/shield.
    I was always wandering why there aren't many magical effects on shields and armour in this game. The first time I've found Doomhall and bought his set, I've spent some time trying to figure out it's magical properties, afaik there are none.

    I see. Well, I've got a couple more weapons that probably fit what you're looking for, considering you mentioned Havel's Shield.

    Grant, it casts something similar to WotG.
    The Stone Greatsword can cast TWoP.
    The Stone Greataxe has an AoE damage move.
    The Channeler's Trident has a dance that gives you a damage buff.
    The dragon tail weapons (except Priscilla), they too have offensive casts.
    Some boss soul weapons have casts too:
    Crystal Ring Shield
    Dragonslayer Spear
    Golem Axe

    Then there's the cursed weapons, that can hit ghosts. This includes the Ghost Blade, the Jagged Ghost Blade and the cursed version of the Greatsword of Artorias.

    Other stuff:
    The Chaos Blade inflict damage on you when you hit something.
    The Lifehunt Scythe raises your own bleed bar when you hit something.
    Smough's Hammer and the Server heal you when you hit something.
    The Greatshield of Artorias prevents all status ailments caused by blocked attacks.
    The Manus Catalyst gives you better Strength scaling when using dark sorceries.
    The Shotel has a strong attack that ignores blocking.
    The Dark Hand can drain humanity.
    You cannot parry whips.

    Some hidden ones that I missed:
    The Dragon Bone Fist gives a bonus to magic and fire def by 30.
    The Gargoyle Halberd increases Bleeding, Poison and Toxin resistance by 25%.

    Only Gwyn left to kill today,
    I'm going to start a new game with Cleric.

    So here comes another noobish question.
    How does vow of silence work in PvE?
    Does it stop things like drake lightning?

    Question!

    Does the Server have a different description if you make it Chaos, and what does it say?

    Don't black knight weapons get a buff against Chaos demons? Or was I lied to?

    I happen to have made one just to check that out, way back when silly The exact description remains the same, except the word "occult" is replaced with "heretical".

     Elifia you mentioned ghost blade, curse artorias and jagged ghost kill ghosts. do you mean they kill without using those things, (sorry forget name but they green and you get 2 of them in NL before the bridge).

    Yep thats what she means.

    The green things are transient curses, but yes, certain weapons will kill the ghosts without them.

    My Str=10, and Dex=14. Any ideas for a low-stat-requirement weapon that will do good damage against Super Ornstein, because my lightning claws +3 do only 39 damage (my fire claws +5 do even less. Isn't Orn weak to fire?). I have no pyromancies/spells/miracles, and my internet connection here is too sucky for co-op.

    p.s. @Mr. Tart:
    Love the avatar/signature/location! L is awesome.

    Thank you. I actually prefer Light over L(Light as in not Kira), but L looks more badass as an avatar.

    I'm not entirely sure what you would have to go with, but I'm pretty sure lighting isn't the best option for that boss. Try leveling up once more and get 11 str so you can two hand greatswords or if you follow a build, you could go back to Undead Burg, kill the undead merchant and get the Uchigatana. You wouldn't have to level strength to two hand it. Also, it causes bleed.

    My plan was to do an elemental claws-only run, so I don't want to raise str/dex higher than their requirements. I'll try the Uchigatana, thanks. I think I can get it to +10 pretty easily. I'll see if it does more damage.

    Well, I only did some testing on mugenmonkey, so I can't say for sure. However, I'm fairly certain bleed affects Ornstein.

    The Uchi did almost twice the damage, and it worked like a charm! Thanks.
    Also, I wasn't watching the damage counter to confirm, but once in a while I'd see blood spurt from Ornstein. I assume that's the bleed affect, confirming that he's vulnerable to it.

    No problem. Glad I could help. Feel free to use this topic if you have more questions rather than make topics. Maybe others will too. silly
