    Gargoyal Tail Axe, bleed/toxin resistance?

    Post by FruitPunchNinja on Sun Jul 29, 2012 12:36 am

    I dont know why but i was thinking about ways of using the weapons like the drake sword,gargoyal halberd, the ones that give you status bonuses. Well anyways i noticed that the gargoyal tail axe gives twice the amount of added resistance as the blood shield. The blood shield gives you 50% more resistance, while the G tail axe gives you 100%.

    I know everyones going to say "you can roll dodge bleed, which is easy and i do it every time cause im pro". But maybe there might be someone out there who thinks maybe offhanding that while using the lifehunt scythe might be usefull. I can actually see it being a rather good weapon in the off hand, but you would obviously have to be careful against roll bs. So what do you guys think, worth it?

    I'm surprised I've never seen someone actually do this >_>

    Oh that's dang cool, I didn't know it would be so great (the Halberd only increases it by 25%). I think it sounds like a great idea if you can afford the extra 2 EL, it makes perfect sense to use it on your back instead of the bloodshield. I don't think its extra protection is worth it against bleed or poison otherwise though, maybe if you can attack with it, it may be.

    It would be good to surprise roll-bs fools too, if you lock off and swing at them.

    Do you really need 2008 bleed resistance?! Or would 476 be enough?

    LOL, i actually just wanted to see how high i could get it. I think the max is if i had the black iron helm on, its like 2035 or something. Im actually curious as to how big the bar is with that much resistance. Oh, and something that actually goes against my idea that this might be viable. I didnt notice but the G tail axe actually "slightly increases status build up" so it kinda counteracts the benefits. I dont think the blood shield does this, so its a toss up. I havent tested anything, so it all comes down to if thats even a noticeable increase.

    The bloodshield will protect you from 92% toxic/poison/bleeding. If you are fighting someone with bleed, its probably better, but when you are inflicting bleed on yourself, I think the ax is better.

    Wouldn't it kind of defeat the purpose of raising your resistances, if you just fill the meter faster anyways? What if it increases status buildup on your opponent? :o

    Edit: i agree blaine, fromsoft tend to do that. "OH an interesting way to use a weapon no one uses,......nevermind"

    Sage robe chest, smough's gauntlets, maiden/bloody skirt, Gargoyle helm and THEN you'll have the highest bleed resistant armor.

    and you can get 6000+ poison res by wearing the painting guardian set with gold hemmed black skirt with the poison ring and dual tail axes.
