      This + Dragoncrest Shield Talisman + Opaline Hardtear + Golden Vow = 60%+ phys damage negation with a medium armor.

        You need to farm enemies or pick up one time farm crafting materials to make madness, frostbite and rot curing consumables,and all other elemental defense buff items must crafted,
        meanwhile this guy has infinite defense buff crab that isn't even debuffed in pvp...

          I love the idea that if you give his Bell Bearing to the Twin Maiden Husks, that they just go like "Ah for ****'s sake, now we gotta cook this ****", so they can sell it to ya.

            Why would you lock such a powerful item behind a dude who doesn't talk to you after you progress the game... It's not like he's hard to miss, I didn't know he existed after clearing every corner of Liurnia (or so I thought) on five characters

              Can someone who has friends comment on whether this has a nerf in pvp? I’ve never felt tankier and no one I’ve fought who takes these seems any tankier. Meanwhile most defense talismans have a pvp nerf.

                Me: whats up my Man.

                Boggart: Marika tits you must be hungry.

                Me: give me the usual.

                Boggart: here you go 699 crabs.

                • Sweet ANOTHER amazing f*kin item im locked out of, I mean who actually f*kin doesn't kill this rude trash robber on sight!? Between this and the magic scorp talisman.. I now hate this otherwise great game.

                  • Crab is an extra 5% compared to prawn, both last 60 seconds, both cost 600 runes. Why would I ever pick prawn over crab? They're nearly identical buffs with one being outright better than the other.

                      You’re gonna end up like Rogier if you eat those crabs. They are infected with death blight and have the prince of deaths face growing on their backs. Take a look for yourself. Directly below that lake is the prince of deaths body. Miyazaki knew what he was doing when he put a shady crab vendor there. Everyone talks about Miquella or arena DLC but I know Miyazaki is hard at work on a death blight swamp DLC and you bet there’s gonna be consequences for eating crabs Who Live in Death from an escaped convict who is loathsome enough to do time with the Dung Eater.

                        You need to buy some of the other food before, that will unlock a new dialogue, since he likes you more when you buy more. After that, he will spawn at the outskirts of Leyndell (near the spot, where dung eater invades you/want you to invade) - you can click through his dialogue again, reload and find him there... (he ask for a fast dead and don't want to be abused by dung eater later on, so I killed him after a few seconds, so he can "be free" - and he dropped the bell bearing).

                          I’m confident this is nerfed in pvp, like the shield talismans. Never noticed opponents who use it were any tanker than before. I began using it on my tank and it seemed to do nothing. Meanwhile, I began using holy ground instead which gives 20% abs boost and I was noticeably stronger in duels.

                            Monch on some crab, slap on the Dragoncrest Shield Talisman, and suddenly Godfrey's looking tame. Boggart knows his shite.

                                Did some testing to see what buffs can be stacked alongside this. You can have a Boiled Crab active for Physical Damage reduction, as well as Pickled Turtle Meat for Stam Regen, Bestial Vitality or the HP Regen Crystal Tear to Heal HP per second, and even the Opaline Hard Tear to reduce elemental damage and they all stack. Throwing on any 'Fortification' spell like Flame or Magic Fortification will overwrite the physical resistance from Boiled Crab unfortunately. Unsure if the 'Blessing' Spells would stack just like Bestial Vitality since they share a similar HP Regen effect, but it seems like they would.

                                  I don't know if this happened to anybody else, but be aware a lot of my bell bearings (items for sale) disappeared after repenting my sins at the church of vows from the twin maiden husks shop.

                                    Stacks with Rallying Standard. For a short time with the right combination of buffs you can have very high physical defense with this stuff. Praise the Crab!

                                      Should probably have bought the necklace before I murdered him his bell bearing doesn't sell anything but the necklace now

                                        Fantastic item, especially considering how cheap & limitless they are. Whenever I've got spare runes I stock up on them.

                                          If you wanna be a tanky fellow, you gotta get a whole buncha this delicious stuff right here. With good armor, dragoncrest talisman, and a nice chomp of this stuff, you can half any incoming physical damage. Pair this up with the Opaline Hard Tear in your physick to buff your elemental defenses, and you become one seriously tanky MF.

                                            Do keep in mind that if you murderize blackguard when you first meet him his bell won't have these on them, you need to follow his questline to the point where he stocks these before you can get them.

                                                    This stacks with the golden vow spell. Combine these two with heavy armor and the physick tear that lowers equip load and you can light roll with 60% physical absorption for 3 minutes. Wow.

                                                      Lasts a full 60 seconds, same with boiled prawn
                                                      looks like this is an upgrade to the prawn with no downsides

                                                      Honestly this item is wonderful for the def boost and it only costs 600 souls. 20% doesn't seem like much but the difference is visible. I still use it for end-game and 600 souls is nothing

                                                        So basically a consumable version of Black Flame Protection? Neat, given it costs 600 runes. And you can carry like 99 of them at a time.

                                                            (So it's basically your "I don't do magic." alternative for a quick defense buff.)

                                                              Or one replaces another?

                                                                Does this stack with spell, perfume, or weapon buffs? The "iron flesh" perfume, dragonskin "faith based iron flesh" incantation, or the couple of ashes that boost AR/DEF?
