    What is the point of Hidden Weapon?

    Is there any real point in using this spell? Has anyone ever used it?

    It could be seriously devastating! Hidden weapon Smough's Hammer? Yeah...

    But I've never seen anyone use it. Have never used it myself either. I prefer Chameleon for the troll factor!

    never tried it myself. I forgot all about that spell. I might try it on those forest campers with BKGA or demons great machete. wonder if hidden weapon can still be buffed, wouldn't that be great hidden SLB or DMB on demons machete for the campers, what a surprise

    Pretty sure hidden weapon counts as a buff already. If you think about it, hiding a really large weapon can be really confusing for an opponent, such as a BKGA. given its speed and range, its really hard for them to figure out a safe distance. I've seen an opponent use it, and I have to say for the first half of te fight it was pretty effective. If you didn't get to see the weapon right after invading, you have no idea how to deal with this opponent until you've figured out from the moveset what they're using.

    Since it's properties are a bit different from other weapon buffs, can it still only be applied to buffable weapons?
    Amusing to use together with the 2HR2 attack of the Iaito while wearing the boar head, it makes the attack look more like a charging tusk attack.

    I'm not sure, but I think it still counts as a buff, which means no.

    Idea: hiding a dragonbone fist or claw, so you look like you're punching empty handed?

    it counts as a weapon buff and can only buff weapons that can normally be buffed.
    (so no, no hidden BKGA, but whatever you CAN buff CAN be hidden)

    It would be pretty sweet on a large club. The 1H R2 animation look like you're casting a miracle, so it would probably cause your enemy to charge you, only to get smashed in the face with the club.

    Maybe it is used to hide how small your "weapon" is.

    I've used hidden weapon on the Pyro Glove, surprised the hell out of an invader with Greater Combustion.

    Hmm. Sounds like a good way to use it. Only once though.

    you can hide the dragon king great axe while you charge up it's super move... wish there was a super critical damage dagger that constantly had that effect just for the lulz

    Surprise Element. The enemy doesn't know if you have a weapon/the true reach of your weapon.

    Hiding a bandit knife seems practical too. If you just use the R2 it'll look like a punch. And then when they let their guard down, a well times BS/parry.

    I don't think you can have both hidden body and hidden weapon active at the same time.

    But fog ring + hidden body + *** gold hemmed set in Dark Anor Londo already = invisibility!

    I played around with Hidden Weapon a little just now, and it's a really cool spell. Could be really fun while invading. Only caveat is that you can't apply it to weapons that can't be buffed with spells. So no hidden Smough's Hammer. But hidden Demon Great Axe = nearly as good! big grin

    Hidden weapon on a two handed Shotel is probably the most misleading combo ever. You expect the opponent to have something of range so you shield up... then get sliced through.

    Im pretty sure hidden body with fog ring does not work anymore, because pre patch used to have a lot of invisibility people. I got one shot once in normal Anor Londo, I was hidden at the darkmoon bonfire and I got backstabbed by nothing, then the guy appears with fog ring and a catalyst in the second hand. After patch I tried to use both and did not worked, they don't stack up anymore.
