    Alluring skulls

    Why did FROM ruin alluring skulls? Soul remains were amazing in demon souls, but in dark souls alluring skulls can't even attract large skeletons. I mean, seriously? Why did they make them completely unusable? Plus, they only last now for 3 seconds or so.

    Don't know and to be honest I have never really used them, I somewhat found the skulls to be a worthless object and have no use for them. If they were actually useful I might use them more.

    They only attract the enemies which are easy to kill. They have no effect on black knights, drakes, large skeletons etc. Kinda stupid seeing as in demon souls soul remains attracted pretty much any non-boss enemy.

    Soul remains made farming pretty easy their counter parts in Dks just suck

    i have only found a few moments where they were useful, and that was if i even had them in my inventory. I have a feeling its because in dks there seems to often be many more enemies at one time in certain areas. if you were invading and threw one at the host and it worked as well as demons souls...well it would be pretty damn powerful. i still think that they should have kept it like that. Its not like theres not already powerful strategys in dks so more would be a good thing imo.

    well, if you don't BB glitch like some people, they are usefull in the begining, in church in same room as the wizard, you can useally get problem with those undead things if they come to many at once at you,

    Throw a skull, they all run there, throw 1-2 bombs, and it's all done happy

    good point lol, but yeah, that spell is basically super alluring skull. It is possible to get it before you get to the church if you have the master key

    I think I've used alluring skulls only once. That was when I first got them near the boar. I threw one in the fire and the boar followed it. Easy kill bounce

    I use them for the Parish boar because I have a hard time getting the crit on it. Otherwise, I never use them. The only actual instances I can see them being useful in are New Londo, Valley of the Drakes, the Catacombs, and Painted World.

    It works for a quick diversion for Capra Demon and (especially) the dogs. The ninjas fall for it, too, but it doesn't last very long. A quick bomb throw will hurt them.

    I think it's pretty useful if you're running away from a mob with barely any health, and you're going "oh crap oh crap oh crap oh crap" then throw a skull really fast, heal up, do whatever, then continue. You can also throw the skull fairly far, meaning even if it only lasts 3 seconds, they still gottah run allll the way over there, then alll the way back.

    Never really used it, but Aural Decoy does allure the Drakes. I know that for a fact.
