      This is best used if you're entering a long dungeon with lots of mobs like Sofia River. It allows you freedom to use spells and skills more as you're regenerating FP any time a mob dies regardless of time, place or who killed it. This pairs very nicely with an abundance of Warming Stones and it's best suited for long coop plays. I've played a lot of Stormveil Castle, Sofia River, Redmane Castle, Raya Lucaria and Volcano Manor runs which should've ran most phantoms dry without any more flasks but since I've been using ancestral horn, blessed dew and warming stones I would usually fight with all my flasks available even when we go through multiple minibosses like tree spirits and grafted scions. Highly recommended for coop and solo dungeon runs. But reconsider to other FP options depending on where you are (enemies that stagger often will make cerulean dagger talisman better or if there are no mobs then use the carian seal)

        bad for casters, good if your only fp use is a little bit on a weapon art (sorry, ash of war, totally unique and different) now and then

        • Anonymous

          For the cost of a talisman slot the FP regain sure is poop. Might as well just carry a few blue estus, and maybe use the crimson seed talisman.
          From please just release the DLC and give us passive FP regen items already.

            It's worth noting you get fp with this for picking off animals, and better yet, those enemies that die for no apparent reason off in the background somewhere.

            • Anonymous

              so carian slicer costs 4 fp. grab a sacrifical axe and offhand it and you can infinitely slicer if you one shot enemies with something that does dumb dmg or at least lose so much less fp when using the best sorcery in the game

              • Anonymous

                I only chose this from the remembrance because I'd beaten the boss for and I saw nothing useful from the weapon art on the greataxe, I can debuff attack power with acid spraymist if I really need to calm down how hard an enemy hits, for bosses dung has his own debuff and he isn't afraid to use it.

                The 3 FP obviously isn't great but it isn't hard to see why infinite FP, unlike the HP return from the taker's cameo and blasphemous blade would make mage builds OP. The benefit even from using both the cameo and Rykard's sword can quickly be lost against hard hitting enemies or if you get caught out by a pack, the HP from those you kill is unlikely to see you survive and is worthless against one powerful enemy. But I haven't come across any enemy, weapon, spell or incantation that can rip the FP away from a caster which would force them to fall back on melee unprepared for it. I know there is an incantation that can dispel buffs but it's found late in the game and has pretty high FTH and INT requirements to cast.

                I wouldn't use this in areas with strong enemies, the talisman slot can be put to far better use but it is handy as a discount on the cost of killing with an incantation or weapon art and if its used with the Carian filigreed crest it does have some value.

                  This talisman is for people who want to keep an indefinite weapon buff, not spam ashes or spells. You use a flaming strike, to fire buff your weapon, getting 5 kills within 20 seconds lets you keep up that buff indefinitely, hence just clearing areas of trash with unlimited mana.

                    3 FP per kill doesn't seem worth wasting the remembrance on. If the greataxe is not up to much either its better used for the runes.

                      Wish it was just the blue version of the Godskin swaddling cloth. Even if it only restored a % of max fp plus the flat 3 it would be decent.

                        Honestly this talisman becomes a solid choice for those who mainly melee with some spells or incants on the side. Cerulean dagger gives more FP, but not everything can be hit with a critical (dogs, animals, the smaller giant rats, slime, etc), so the 3 Fp can add up quick. Plus sometimes its just easier to kill something than try to go for the crit.

                        • Anonymous

                          Considering the blue dagger talisman gives 15fp per critical hit this would make sense if it was 3fp per hit instead of per kill , as it is now there is literally no reason to waste a talisman slot on this

                            If you use this Talisman with Sacrificial axe and cast Carian Slicer, you can get a little free FP for each cast on a mob kill. Its a good way to conserve FP for a mage if they do this for trash mobs or just use the Axe and get more. Heck you line up your mobs right and almost any casting could be free.

                              Three fp restored, how generous! Typical FS, when they use words like "greatly" and "vastly" they mean like 8% or 10%. That's called "shitly," vastly in the actual world as in "vast sum of money" isn't $8 or $10.

                                I disagree with most of you saying it's under tuned. This is to mitigate your FP use not sustain you forever. You kill one trash mob with storm blade for 10-3=7. Beautiful. Now his buddies are aggroed. Surprised Pikachu face! You also kill his trash mob buddies. The way it stands now it's to make finishing kills cost you less. If it takes you two storm blades to kill one enemy that's 17fp. Not cheap if you aren't running faith or int to need a high mind stat. If it was tuned to say 1% of your FP it would make it viable across the board imo. It's never going to let you run around forever with 81fp but I don't think it should. It takes away some of the risk that anything can kill you at a moments notice unless you have unlimited blasphemous blade because forever heals

                                • The fire cannon things in redmane count as enemies apparently, so breaking them restores fp while wearing this. Haven't tested it on the batista type enemies but it probably works on those too

                                    Destroying the fire cannon things in redmane counts as killing an enemy, I haven't tested if this works on the batistas in stormveil

                                      If you only want to dedicate one talisman slot for fp regen, just equip great-jar's arsenal+sacrificial axe instead of this.

                                      This set up regens 4 instead of 3 fp, provides an additional aow, and has extra carry weight for more build flexibility.

                                      You can't powerstance non-axes, but 2-handing your main and off-handing sacrificial axe ignores that issue.

                                      • Everyone talking about how this sucks on casters. Well with an ultra greatsword or similar weapon ideal for mass-murdering hordes of trash mobs like zombies, this is actually pretty great.

                                        • I get the view bloodstain trick that allow you to restore infinite fp, but I'd rather they remove it and let this restore some viable fp point per enemy defeat like taker's cameo

                                            Yea i get it, i play a caster and reading 3fp per kill is Laughable, but then i read this

                                            The talisman restores FP when viewing bloodstains of Torrent dying. You must wait for the group bloodstain's red phantom to die and be within the vicinity to receive FP. The effect is infinitely repeatable off of a single bloodstain.

                                            Now that sounds interesting. just play logged in, and click any of those red stains from lunatics jumping off anything higher than 3ft and you can get Mad Fp.

                                              Took weak tbh, 3 FP is TOO low, 6 FP or something would be far better, i tried running this several times and it just isnt worth it for a caster build, not even hybrids.

                                              Youre better off using the Blue Dagger for 15 FP instead.

I might have to change up to this + paired sacrificial axes + cerulean dagger. Cast some spells and then it's time to get choppin

                                                  When I first tried this out thinking it would be really useful I legitimately thought it was bugged cause I couldn't see the fp gain on my Hud. No, its just miniscule. 3 flat. Not even a %. 3 flat fp as a boss reward. Glinstone pebble costs 7 fp, so you need to kill 4 enemies to regain the fp to cast it once. I don't expect it to remove my need for cerulean flasks, but I do expect it to make casting more efficient.

                                                    When i first used it with a pool of 150fp i thought to myself, okay, did something happen? Never used it again. Needs a buff up to 7-10fp per kill. Or scale it, the bigger the enemy hp pool the more it restores.

                                                      Does this stack FP gain on kill with the Sacrificial Axe? In DS3 when in a large zone with no fire/rest points I’d often switch to Executioner’s Sword(FP on kill) with the FP regen shield on my back and find some trash mobs and or swap to Executioner for killing blows to refill my FP bar instead of using a pot. If you do this early and often in a zone where you can’t rest it adds up over the long run.

                                                        I only see FP return on a bloodstain if the other user died on horseback. Works for falls and apparently grisly one shot kills. But only with a horse. Maybe it’s Torrent’s death generating the FP.

                                                          Doing a mix of a caster and a melee build. This talisman was pretty useful for a while, but it does start to lose usefulness in later levels as your magic bar gets bigger and you get access to stronger and more expensive spells. For spells that don't cost much FP like Carian Slicer, this is great, but for beefier spells, you'd be better off just chugging a flask.

                                                          Definitely don't sleep on this like some comments suggest, but if you're heavy into the caster side of things, you'd probably be better off looking for talismans that improve the power of your spells or how many slots you have.

                                                            I really like this talisman, because I can spam ashes of war in any strong enemy while getting back some FP which in the end it's some kind of a FP reduction for you. Once you run out of FP you can just kill weak enemies by doing normal attacks and farm some FP until you can use again your ash of war.

                                                              Overall, after many hours with this talisman, I no longer think a stronger variant is needed painful as a "mere" 3 FP per kill may be. It is perfectly balanced as is.

                                                              Between this and the Assassins' Cerulean Dagger one is presented with tactical choice. Invaluable whilst being summoned for co-op, it works well in areas with lots of trash mobs (e.g. Subterranean Shunning Grounds, with its many rats and slugs to feed off). Naturally, in areas where you'll want to fish for backstabs, like against hoards of zombies, the other is higher risk, higher reward.

                                                              Any who'd say this isn't for mages has err'd. This, along with the Taker's Cameo, is for basically anyone who seeks to earn their Rune Arcs through Jolly Cooperation. Solo, your flasks should easily be enough under most circumstances. I write this now as a 60 INT mage (2nd playthrough) who just guided a new guy through the entirety of the Subterranean and its boss (whilst backing off two invaders no less). Best rune arc I earned yet, and couldn't do it without this trinket.

                                                              Get tactical.

                                                                But if you're in an area facing trash mobs with high poise or low health you can't backstab this could have some use. I like to be FP neutral

You must wait for the group bloodstain's red phantom to die and be within the vicinity to receive FP. The effect is infinitely repeatable off of a single bloodstain.". Although, I do agree that this Talisman needs some buff or added effect to be worth using a Talisman slot. At this point it seems too situation, or dependent on external factors.

Places where FP starts to matter don't have packs of enemies like in Limgrave and Liurnia that are there to just die in 1 hit. I hope it gets buffed in the future, otherwise there are infinitely better ways to use a talisman slot.

Darkmoon greatsword (or other buff based weapon skills) and this can work well with Carian Filigreed Crest (reduces fp usage of weapon skills).

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Unfortunately this item is complete trash for actual casters. Endgame enemies have so much health you can easily spend more than 50-100 FP to down one with spells. It's useful for builds that are primarily fighters that use some light spells on the side so they don't need to divert flasks or stat points to having FP available, but to an actual caster this is a joke.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Quick tip for anyone looking for another item with FP on kill: "Sword of Milos" (Greatsword) gives 5 FP on kill AND it stacks. Meaning with this item here and the sword you get 8 FP per kill.

                                                                                            • This is great option for a paladin, as the urgent heal only costs 16 FP. So 3-4 enemies down and you've already replenished enough FP for a heal cast. Talismans are situational.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                • Anonymous

You know how many weak enemies you mow down with a sword between spells as a spell blade? Kill 10 enemies and I get a free cast of most of my spells. If you use this right it'll give you a lot of benefit for any one who isn't a pure caster, and for those who are, it's easily an extra spell or two before having to use a flask to top up.
