      fun thing about this item is that you can backstab your coinvaders with a fist and if they get the hint you can heal each other if you are both low on flasks

        Somebody at FS looked at Aldrich's Ruby and decided to make it WAY better than it was. This thing doesn't leave my talisman slot for a good portion of the game. It's still great even late game where it's effect is diminished.

          One of the absolutely best Talismans. It synergize also extremely well with Poise Break Weapons like the Large Club.

          • Anonymous

            Actually I was half right. The Stone Club procs twice on certain enemies. On others the first hit just doesn't proc...

              All Colossal Weapons (NOT Colossal Swords, specifically the separate Colossal Weapon class) will get double benefit from this talisman. It doesn't appear to be tied to animation as both the Colossal Swords and the Colossal Weapons share the same critical animations. This also appears to be unique to just the Colossal Weapons as I tested it at Agheel Lake North for easy backstabs and parries for every weapon class and the only ones that doubled up the effect were the Colossal Weapons.

              Additionally, some enemies change the crit animation and will allow any weapon to double up on the heal but this isn't terribly common.

                Early game (pre godfrey and no caelid) if your even quality or strength I'd say this is THE best talisman. Pop this and even wooden greatshield and your guard counters will break stance and that crit will heal likely beyond the damage you took. Basically, this plus starter greatshield equals 100% damage reduction greatshield

                  The heal amount is 10% + 85. If you are only looking at %, at different HP values that number will change, but the formula is both % and flat amount.

                    I did some testing. It is based on a % of your max HP, but that % diminishes the more HP you have.

                    With 833 health, it healed 168 HP, which is a bit more than 20%

                    With 1805 health, it healed 265 HP, which is roughly 15%

                    With 2256 health, it healed 310 HP, which is 13.7%

                    Still a really good talisman. Very good when you're exploring or going through a dungeon and finding a good method of getting criticals on enemies, and still gives you a survivability boost against bosses if you go for stance breaks. I think for bosses the FP version is more valuable, especially if you're melee and use cheaper ashes of war and you don't have much max FP

                      How come this never works for me, I've hit countless and countless of enemies while wearing this talisman and my HP doesn't ever go up I'm sure I must've crit them once of the I dunno 500 fights I've had with enemies. My HP never ever never ever never ever goes up, backstab, while low on health and what soever, how do I get ti to proc.

                          This thing low-key turns you into Doom Slayer, you're invincible during the critical hit animation and it gives a hefty heal. There is also a blue version of this talisman that restores 15 FP on a crit located in the Blackknife Catacombs in northeast Liurnia.
                          Now to find the Dagger Talisman that increases crit damage...

                            You can get this early and its effect is great, will greatly reduce your flask use and also benefit going for backstabs, parries, guard counters... I'd say it's a must have especially early on

                              Insanely useful PvE. Saves a lot of flask uses. You can heal up just for doing easy backstabs from roaming hollows

                                This thing is so op. I got it early somehow, I don't even remember fighting the black knife assassin. And it's never come off, saved me so many times.

                                  To get this relic... consider using that same Uchigatana you probably found on the same catacomb, wield it in two-hand (if no shield without skill) it and use the special fast or heavy move to easily catch the assassin off guard. Parrying this rogue might be a bit hard, but doable.

                                    This heals for about 20% max hp, great if you can land consistent critical hits, ie: backstabs or visceral attacks. With all the different ways to stagger in this game, this is a good item for pve.

                                    • Actually did a quick test and it seems to heal about 17% with a few errors. Tried healing with a backstab one handed on a skeleton and I went from 589 to 753 (204 health gained which is roughly 17.5111% heal) then did another without my HP talisman and I went from 697 to 894 (197 increase being 17.1141% Heal).

                                      Seems like a fairly good talisman if you don't know what else to run, which could be the case considering how early you can get it.

                                        For anyone wondering why it’s not appearing in your inventory, I made the same mistake, this item is a talisman, not a weapon

                                          I killed this boss today and it didn't give the weapon has anyone else had this issue and is there a way to fix it? It gave me the prompt as if i had gotten it but the dagger wasn't in my inventory

                                            PLEASE ADD TO WIKI - if you kill the black knife assassin early in his secret area you will not be able to get this drop - you will get the cerulean dagger instead. Dont make same mistake i made
