    must have consumables?

    Post by djgq42 on Mon Apr 23, 2012 1:07 pm

    what are your favorite/ least favorite consumables and why? what would you change about an item if you could?

    i am a fan of the homeward bone, but i'd like it if you had the option of which bonfire to warp to. kinda like a portable lord vessel.

    That would be neat. My favorite is the poison knives for harassing campers in the forest. After that it's prism stones. I like that they have a use (or uses) besides the Hansel and Gretel obvious one. I also grew attached to them dropping 1,000 in a spot to find the elusive eighth color. I never did sadly

    When I'm doing PvE, I usually only have estus and homeward bone. I'll equip purple moss for btown, but that's usually it.

    For PvP, I'm carrying grass, red and blooming moss.

    That would be cool!
    Homeward bone is one of my most used, too.
    Humanity too, as I'm an average-skilled player I usually find myself with 0 ready to use big grin
    Prisms stones, I only use them in the Crystal cave but am now curious abot that eighth color, going now to watch thousands of youtube videos and count the colors big grin

    The "other" wiki says they have found them and lists eight colors. It also says none of them are "rare." I literally did 1,000 stones in one area and never saw an eight. I'll link you here.....

    Divine Blessing.

    I seriously wish this item was more common, I'd like to use them in PvP a lot, and if they costed 1000 souls, I doubt anyone would consider them -too- cheap, since both players could receive a lot of them.

    After extensive research through youtube ad google images I hereby announce that probably the eighth color is the pendant .
    I read someone saying it's the white one, but I think white and light pink are the same color under different light

    did you know that once in a blue moon the homeward bones will fail to warp you and turn you white? it even mentions it in the description... i'll post that later unless someone else has dks in front of them now...

    What? like a white phantom, or just white color pallete? I have used something like 200+ bones and never seen this happen. Thats really interesting.

    Wait I just checked the item description, and its talking about the nature of the bone to warp you to bonfires, not the tendency to turn you white.

    "Bone fragment reduced to white ash. Return to the last bonfire used for resting.

    Bonfires are fueled by the bones of the Undead. In rare cases, the strong urge of their previous owner's to seek bonfires enchants their bones with a homeward instinct."

    Rynoa, I thought there were two greens until I adjusted the color. I thought pink and white were separate but haven't done testing in awhile

    the last part of the description is what i was reffering to yukon, the "homeward tendenciy' manifests as a white coloring of the character (armor and body) basically you get enchnted by using it, i've seen this happen once, nothing really impressive.

    Definitely homeward bone is one of the best. My least favorite probably would be the Distraction skulls or whatever they are called. I just have no use for those.

    They are pretty usefull against the boar, when you fist get them you can throw them down towards the fire, and he runs into the fire and kills himself. Thats what I did the first time.

    I use them now and then when I want to run through an area like in the bonewheel field.

    My most used consumable is also homeward bone, I was playing a game the other night and I kept thinking, man I wish I had homeward bones to get back to the town, so I don't have to walk.

    You actually can buy these from Rhea if you meet her at the altar at Undead Parish. She sells them for exactly 1000 souls. silly

    I love the sh*t out of the estus flask, jussayin.

    Throwing Knives are also fun to use if the time is right.

    I like the green blossoms, the pine resins, and the homeward bones.

    Also, on the subject of extra effects of items, has anyone ever gotten the blue lightning effect with the gold pine resin? My friend was playing and used it on his zweihander in I think the crystal caves, and the electricity was blue instead of yellow. It looked sweet as hell.

    They change too much from different screens - just now I counted:
    - green
    - yellow
    - red/orange
    - blue
    - purple
    - pink
    - white
    - light blue?

    Humanity! I'm running out of it on my current playthrough atm and that kind of hurts. Down to 2 now.. I'm in Anor Londo so it's kind of a long walk getting to a place where I can farm them. (Well, I guess I could go to Painted World but I don't really feel like it).

    Other than that, blooming purple moss. Ever been invaded by someone who throws torrents of dung pie? ...

    I threw some down last night and came up with the rainbow:

    red
    pinkish/orange
    yellow
    green
    blue
    purple
    white

    I still think there might be two green variations. I dropped all of the colors above (took over 30 to get a good sample) and then switched the color settings on my tv to cycle through all the modes just in case my tv was steering me wrong. It wasn't, changing color modes did the expected saturation and brightness changes but didn't make any crazy color changes or anything. If there are two greens (which would be lame as hell) then purple would likely be the "rare" color. A few times testing it's always the last color to drop for me. However, I did that last night and then did a quit/reload and purple was the first. So if others want to test anything quickly for my sanity's sake let me know if purple is the last color to drop for you.

    Back on topic. Prism stones have now been moved up a place and are my favorite consumable object.

    Maybe the one you call green is the one I saw as light blue?

    Back on topic: I'm going to buy a hell of a lot of prism stones tonight.
