    Which is faster?

    Post by Dibsville on Thu Jun 13, 2013 3:34 am

    I just kind of thought about this, and I don't really know the answer.

    Which one is faster, drinking two Estus or a single Humanity?

    Obviously, one Estus is faster than a Humanity, but which one recovers faster when you have two sips?

    I think it's Humanity, but I have no clue.

    Dibs, I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure two estus chugs are faster than a humanity.

    Again, I have no clue on this one, so I can't say against that.

    They seem extremely even, but I'm curious as to which one is faster.

    I have to say maybe two estus flask but by a very small margin of time. Estus and humanity are had to tell which is faster without testing, so I may be wrong.

    Are we assuming estus is +7? Because if so, than estus is faster.

    The rank of the estus effects speed?

    It affects how fast you're going to fill up your health bar.

    If we assume you do a double chug, the initial animation is played out once. You'd have to run some tests and check frame by frame which animation lasts longer, but I think chugging twice is faster.

    I also think two Est chugs are faster, but they recover only 1600 HP, so if you're a HP tank, Humanity is better for you.
    Or do it like me, use Divine Blessings.

    I am almost certain two estus chug is faster then a humanity. I ran into a persistent host the other day, who kept flasking. I decided to heal up too. I began popping a humanity, and a little under a second, he drink two estus flask. He was ready to continue the fight approximately the same time as I, even though I started out with the humanity consuming.
    Everything went so fast, however, so I could easily be mistaking.

    To chug or not to chug?

    For while those that truly know the taste of Estus, you know the burning of your throat as it slips down into your undead stomach. You know the confusion of fighting one hundred pinwheels half of which are there by magic and the other half because you're drunk... and to still win. You know the headaches after indulging in an uncountable amounts of estus, even though you swear you only took 20 shots. Then, after it all, you know the true wrath of Gwyn as the sun beats you're already obnoxious headache further into you're skull.

    And for those that know the sting of humanity, you know the addiction. For those that consume the humanity grow numb after the first 50 hits but you still want more and then all of a sudden you're going through Lordran on you're fifth run looking for under every nook and cranny for humanity because your mind has started to fade. It's only on your seventh run of Lordran that you've realized that you want more and that's when you meet the Darkwraiths, they promise you free humanity... at the price of a life. At that point in time, you're cracked, you've already given up on kindling the flame for the thousandth time and that's when you start to invade. You start to murder others trying to get by in Anor Londo and Blight Town all for your addiction until you become less and less undead and more hollow.

    In the lesser of the two evils, I would go back to the estus. As while it was dangerous riding armored boars through the parish while chugging it was nothing like invading for the craving of humanity.

    Sidenote: To the OP I believe chugging two is faster than popping a humanity, however chugging three is slightly longer because of the animation time of popping humanity.

    Okay after trying to test what I think is close to impossible without keen eye sight. I am very close to say that without a doubt that two chugs is faster than a humanity. I kinda think that the humanity animation of the hand raising takes a few more seconds than the second sip.

    Sometimes, when I invade into TWOP ganks, I feel like that cat in the horse head picture.

    Two chugs is definitely a better option when it comes to speed.

    One humanity = around 2.5-3.0 seconds roughly, not sure on exact time
    One Estus Flask = about 1.5 seconds, give or take

    So assuming there's no start-up on the second chug, it's around 2.0-2.5 seconds for two chugs.

    How the hell do you upvote someone anyway?

    Anyway, like everyone else i am pretty sure two estus is faster. And since you (that means mostly me btw) rarely have builds over 1600 hp... Etsus is better?

    Unless u invading, then you don't have much of  a choice
