    What's a good curse resistance?

    Post by Akatik on Fri Jan 27, 2012 1:40 pm

    My Black Iron set gives me around 70 curse resistance, if I throw on my BloodShield, then that will increase my curse resist by 100 or so. Is that good for a jaunt through the Great Hollow and Crystal Caverns?

    Great Hollow - Bow for the froggies

    Crystal Caves - that equip should be fine.

    Now, I'm wondering why exactly have 70ish curse resist at 0 humanity. I have full Black Iron +5 and the wikidot doesn't quite add up.

    Maybe its due to my high faith?

    How about in general? Say for a new character. At what point does stacking on more curse resist become redundant? I was thinking that it was at 100.

    best curse resistance is humanity. although i never could understand how people can even get cursed.
    but, if you ask about armor... paladin set

    If you want a good armor with good phys def a curse def, then you gotta use the Paladin set +5. It has the highest curse defense of the game.

    I agree with somebody_else humanity is the best for curse resistance. It will add greatly. You can also get the curse bite ring in new londo ruins. But as long as you have humanity on you will have good curse resistance.

    Cursebite Ring offers 400 curse resist if your base resistance is above 100 I believe. I found that against Seath, I didn't need to even use the ring. The only attack that seemed to build up my curse bar was his Crystal Breath, and even then once I learned to dodge it, the boost to my resistance seemed pointless.

    you have to try to be cursed if you ask me i've never been cursed because i never standed on the cloud of smoke like an idiot wondering that little bar with a skull on its end was

    cursebite ring its the best curse resistance

    humanity gives you curse resistance so having 10 humanity makes you have pretty good curse resistance

    blodshield gives some good resistance too

    theres that armor set (forgot the name) that can be found on the great hollow that gives off curse resistance

    putting on a certain ring is good, while having humanity helps too.

    Don't really see the point of this question though, curse isnt really bad unless you do something stupid, since it's build up is fairly simple to avoid... :|

    The Best curse countermeasure is not being in the situation that you need it..
