    props to mrIwont4get for this
    just thought i'd drop this here cause havels GS is so rare when its buff is so good and i saw a tip that if you activate the buff then put on the sanctus the visual stone effect of the buff disappears.

    I have done that but with randoms you kinda need to be careful, whenever I try to buff with it most people immediately go for a bs, its fun though.

    >I don't think "nobody knows about it" is the reason this buff doesn't get used. The game's been out for, what, 18 months? By now there are plenty of people who've messed around with every piece of equipment in the game. The reason why this buff is almost never used is that it's 34 strength for a 40 second buff and most people are too lazy to hardswap before a match anyways.

    I have a 50 str dragonoid that uses this a lot. It's hilarious, you get crazy poise and deflection, while still fastrolling, and your roar makes the buff invisible (but still in effect). The only drawback is that it takes 300 cond from a 500 cond shield for just one use, so I ended up collecting 5 havel greatshields and then upgrading them to +1, +2, +3, +4, and +5 so I can use them in order as needed. It only costs twinkling and doesn't affect the shield stats anyway.

    Don't you mean "When DensetsuShun uses it during a cosplay event I'll go for a BS after he buffs?" silly

    Fin's old broadcast is gone, but this was a month ago, you were cosplaying a Balder knight. I didn't mean it in a bad way anyway.

    ohhh, well i cant do anything with those damn weapons if you have the buff so all i could do is either bs or parry you, i know you didn't mean it in a bad way. cosplaying is so damn fun, hopefuly from patches the flickering soon, i cant stand it.

    Yeah, if From patches the flickering I'd pop the disc in every now and again to join cosplay events.
