    Crimson skirt OP?

    Post by ICEninja on Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:38 am

    While I realize the 0 poise can be crippling for some builds, I find that this item has significantly better defenses than anything in its weight class, and even a few weight above it.

    Yet to recent memory, I can't recall looking at any build that utilizes it. I personally think it looks awful, but am having a difficult time finding something to replace it without either putting me in mid roll or tanking some of my defensive stats.

    What are other people's thoughts on the crimson skirt?

    Good defenses, but that deep crimson is pain for the fashionistas to mix-and-match into good looking attire.

    Crimson Skirt is the best 0 poise armor that upgrades via Twinkling titanite. The body is Sage Robe and the gloves are Witch Gloves.

    Sage robe rocks. Xanthous Waistcloth is even better than Crimson.

    Xanthous always was, and the Painting Guardian legs are much better than the chest in terms of across the board defense for no poise. Maiden/Dingy Skirt is still up there I think, along with Wanderer Boots for physical resist.

    Dingy top might overrun everything else for poiseless armor, but it upgrades via normal titanite, I was talking about Twinkling titanite, since 10 Twinkling titanite is more affordable then a Slab.

    Even at +9 most good stuff is still better than twink stuff. Dingy robe +9 still has well over 70 Mdef and around 50 Phys.

    I found a calculator online. Apparently in order to maximize my defenses and still have some poise with 11 weight I need Logan's set, and the sage robe. According to the wiki I need to buy all of his spells in order to do that.

    I'm a strength build and I really don't want to do that. Is there any other way to get it?

    It's hands-down the best piece of resist armor in the game in my opinion, ESPECIALLY when it comes to curse. I have never been cursed in the game when wearing JUST that one piece of resist armor (+5 ofc) and as stated, it's the probably the best piece when it comes to upgrade costs because 10 Twink. titanite is soooo much easier to come across than 10 Titan. Shard + 7 Titan. Chunk + 1 Slab...I can have 10 Twinkling in less than 20 minutes....from the start of the game almost lol.

    Bloodstained skirt (Dingy) I think is the best with defences + has great bleed resistance if I remember right.
