    Great magic barrier

    Post by Shakie666 on Wed Apr 04, 2012 9:40 am

    How good is it? I know it reduces magic damage by 90%, but i've heard from people that it makes the four kings a piece of cake because it (allegedly) reduces the damage from their blades as well. Does it? If so, it'll be make a better alternative to iron flesh. If not, should i fight at range? Because that would need a decent intelligence AND faith...

    It is glorious, better than iron flesh imho because you keep full mobility and can strafe faster. It also nerfs Seath, among others.

    Sounds good except... does it reduce physical damage as well? Or is it just magic damage?

    if a weapon or attack dose extra magic damage like astoras or moonlight gs that will also be blocked by 90% the spell itself is amazing and a grate way to troll cristal cannons and mlgs users....i think if u combine it with one of the slumbering dragon ring its affect will last 2x longer

    You didn't answer my question about whether or not it blocks physical damage... anyway, who cares about pvp? Invaders are almost all lagstabbing trolls anyway.

    Sorry, i didn't intend to come across as a ****, its just given my past experiences with invaders... well, i won't go there, ok? I was just wanted a straight answer to my question. Anyway, so if i were to use GMB against the four kings, i would have to keep my distance to avoid their blades, and tank their magic attacks? If so, then i'm screwed because i can't use sorceries much.

    Its great against 4 kings since it reduces their grab damage, their stupid forever chasing undodgable purple ****, and their area nuke. Dodging their melee attacks is a joke and they dont hit hard anyway.

    Why not try the spell & let yourself take physical damage. When I wanted to no how good Karmic Justice was I simply invaded someone used it & let them strike me. Just to save you the effort KJ sucks.

    I've heard that they are easy to dodge, but i am absolutely horrendous at dodging, the one time i tried killing them by dodging i still got hit every single time. Besides, on ng++++ their melee attacks still do about 600 damage with iron flesh and full giants, so without them (to dodge effectively) its 1 hit and i'm dead.
