Best ash of war, managed to beat malenia first try because of the backwards dodging this thing does
casuls: Why won't Fromsoft give us an easy mode?!
Remember Wolf Leap from ds3? This is him now
from the amount people spam this skill its surprising more people dont try to parry it
Since the update I have noticed that this weapon triggers bleed but before it didn’t
From using this skill, it seems the second attack teleports when two-handed but dashes when one-handed.
Make sure to grab the somber smithing stone on the chair immediately right side behind rocks after crossing the bridge on your way to the gaol. You can use the “secret” path around Stormveil later to rest at a site of grace in liurnia to be able to go to round table hold (probably will trigger at the one by the merchant). Then you can upgrade this sword right away.
There’s also a somber stone in one of the elevator shafts in the agheel mine. Don’t know if it’s a 1 or a 2.
Is Claw Talisman boost this skill?
One of the best weapon skills in the game. Follow-up attack teleports you in a direction of your choice, meaning that it can be used to evade most attacks if you’re about to be punished after using the first part of the skill.
this is broken, you get a HUGE ton of damage and iframes. Annoying thing to fight against
This has a SECOND ATTACK! If you use the Weapon skill then follow up with an R2 you get a BLOODHOUND DASH FORWARD and another strike!!
I must be doing something stupid, but sometimes it just doesn’t fire for me. Plenty of FP, stamina, no shield, but I pull the L2 and just stand there like a fool. Try quick pull and release, pull and move, … I don’t get it. Then when it does fire it goes off twice sometimes. Same thing happens using it 2H and RH. Any ideas?
Level 50 and I've taken out a few tough bosses only attacking with this swords special attack.
Its not hard to parry. Just listen for the sound of the windup. You can also parry the second attack as well.
Tried this once in pvp got insta parried and died, never touched the weapon again.
at lvl 50 and im still using this. so good...
Is it worth it getting more mana to spam this? I noticed that L2 R2 combo works with no mana as well, the only difference seems to be that the R2 dash is just a dash and not a teleport, which doesn't seem to make a huge difference.
So where can I find bloodhound’s finesse?
I found this ash of war around sellia town on a tree, drops from bug wjo can teleportates
**** man i love this skill but no ash of war for it >< REEEEE
This seems like a fun weapon to use in my build, currently using a katana but another option would be welcomed for variety.
What are the PS4 controls for the dash?
Best curved greatsword, prove me wrong
Does bloodhound’s finesse ay blood loss?
This is not only available on bloodhound's fang, it is also available as an ash of war found in Caelid.
This weapon skill has no business being this satisfying and fun
