    Curses on my!

    Post by joemann on Sat Apr 27, 2013 1:48 pm

    For the first time in a long time (since my 1st playthrough of my 1st toon) I got cursed twice in a row in the Great Hollow.

    This got me thinking: There are weapons, items, spells, and resins that cause bleed damage, poison damage, fire damage, etc, but there is nothing with which the player can use to cause curse.

    Why is this? Would it be considered OP for a player to be able to curse another player?
    Would a pyromancy that causes curse be too OP? Something similar to the poison mist but cause curse instead.

    I've thought about it, and came to the conclusion that if a player got cursed by another player, then it is their own dumb fault for staying in the cloud too long, or what-have-you.

    I also don't see how having a weapon or item or pyromancy/spell or resin would be game breaking.
    Having the ability to curse other players might actually add another level of play to the game.

    If a weapon cursed on each hit bleed would have no purpose in the meta.

    Curse is a stronger bleed with an aftereffect.

    Cursing would be op. I wonder why hackers haven't evolved to this yet... :suspect:

    They have. I've seen videos of people getting killed in one hit because of weapons that have cursing properties.

    It was probably coded, but scrapped at the end of the game.

    I think because Curse instantly kills you, they decided to scrap it.

    On the other hand, since Curse got nerfed... I don't think it'd be too OP, and it'd pwn those Infinite HP hackers.

    There'd have to be incentive to not use the weapon, otherwise I imagine Curse weapons would be the only weapons used, but I think they'd be awesome.

    Don't forget, you can't cure curse until you either ring the gargoyles bell or unlock the short cut to depths. Undead berg has probably the most invasions in the game. Getting cursed that early would ruin that toon because alot of people don't boost vit right away. So trying to fight gargoyles or even getting past the bandits in the basement with under 250 hp would deter noobs from playing at all.
    Having a cursed weapon would imo ruin gaming for people.
    Look at demon souls when people used lag switches to win PvP matches. Cheaters ruin the fun for the serious gamers

    Curse is on PC. haven't experienced it but have heard of it and seen a vid. For some reason it only seems to be applied to kellogs furry sword.

    Is pc game play different from ps3? If not, it would suck being cursed with a new toon
