      If you have problems with the Bear, just use a sleep pot. One is enough to put him to sleep.
      Use one again on your way back and you are free.

        Just putting your poise up high enough to tank a two hander swing isn't all you are trying to do. Being able to get staggered less from trash mobs doing one handed lights here and there is a HUGE quality of life consideration. This talisman works in any build with any armor IMO. Not just to stack poise on your bully tank. But hey, having no single hit in the game stagger you must be cool... too bad I may never find out cause you know... Fashion Ring drip > Function.

          Is it just me or does the fact they put that this trinket after that rune bear feel like a joke? Cheers to anyone who through themselves at that runebear repeatedly.

            This is an interesting change for FromSoft. Before the wolf ring would have diminishing returns, the higher your poise, the less poise the ring gave you, but this ring does better if you have more poise.

              Wow my version of Elden Ring doesn't have Bull Goat Talisman and so many others items, I don't know why that is.

                love being forced to wear ugly **** like veteran's and bullgoats set just because from decided that it'd be a good idea not to make this a flat poise boost like wolf ring

                  Sad that having a viable tank build completely relies on a talisman, unless you plan on being over leveled.

                    Reduces incoming poise damage by 25%. This means a 33% poise increase. If you have 30 poise and get attacked for 40 poise damage, the poise damage is reduced by 10, which would be 33% of your poise.

                      Pretty amazing talishman, the true benefit does not lie in the fact it stops staggers with smaller caps as we saw with new discoveries but rather that it turns "heavy" staggers into "weak" stagger.

                      • Anonymous

                        Interestingly, the +33.3% poise is basically the same thing as reducing incoming poise damage. 70 poise x 1.333 = 93.31. A Reaper does 93 poise damage one handed, 93 x 0.75 = 69.75. 70 poise to not stagger, although the game would probably show us 93 poise but 93.31 would leave you with 0.31 poise left after getting hit. It would have been better to leave the decimals like in DS3 so we could at least know exactly what we have. They probably didn't want to overcomplicate it and have us reducing poise damage by 25% and ending up with decimals on everything but damn it if that's how it really works then just reflect that.. From hates us figuring out their math

                        • It's been discovered that the Bull-Goat's Talisman reduces incoming poise damage by 25%. This is big. This means that you can rest easy at lower poise thresholds with the Bull-Goat's Talisman. Take this 0 poise super armor example. With 0 poise, super armor gives you (0/2) + 30 = 30 poise during your super armor. See, without the Bull-Goat's Talisman, you wouldn't be able to super armor through a dagger 1H R1 (that's 30 poise damage). But with the talisman equipped? The dagger 1H R1 now does 22.5 poise damage (which probably gets rounded down). What's more, with the talisman on, you can even super armor through a dagger 2H R1 (normally 33 poise damage, now 24.75 poise damage).

                          Now onto a higher poise example. A paired katana L1 does 20 + 40 poise damage. 60. Without the Bull-Goat's Talisman, you can poise through that at 61 or super armor through it at 62 poise. But with the talisman on, the poise damage becomes 15 + 30. 45. You can now spend less weight on armor and poise through that at 46 or super armor through it at 34 poise.

                          The Bull-Goat's Talisman is now a crutch talisman. And yeah, they kind of had to display the effects in that way (wrongly increasing poise) because how else would they display less incoming poise damage?

                            Decreases incoming poise damage by all attacks by 25%. Doesn't actually increase your poise even though the stat listed changes when equipped. Can tank higher poise damaging attacks with very low poise using this, especially considering that collosal weapons and the like will give a minimum amount of poise during attack animations. Way better than it has the right to be, and just as misleading as expected from Zaki the man

                              This ring is a communist, it enriches the people who already have enough (poise) while starving the people who actually need it.

                                So unless I use one of those ugly heavy armour sets this wont be as beneficial? What does From have against fashion souls who want some decent poise? Why must I get punished for having drip while those copy pasted veteran and bullgoat people get to enjoy this on top of their already high poise?

                                  Its actually better that it is percentage base rather than a flat rate. If your poise is low then you probably shouldn't be investing in this talisman. The reason it isnt flat rate is because it will not benefit the builds that do have high poise. Sure a flat rate would be better for really low poise but you'd get stunned, staggered, and get rekted anyway due to low poise. 33.33% is a very high value; if you want to get the most out of this talisman then invest in some endurance so you can equip armor that give you more poise.

                                      Y’all are probably new to souls games. Miyazaki hardly does any weapon balancing in subsequent patches. The game goes the if it’s not broken dont fix it principle. You can do min-max, but it’s not the game is designed for. The only exception is Ringed Knight Twinned GS, that **** has become too absurd that Miyazaki himself has to step in

                                            Everybody complaining about how this talisman works better when you already have poise, that's the point.
                                            The trade off for poise is having to level endurance to use it, losing a talisman slot doesn't compare to 40 endurance levels.

                                              Really should be a flat boost, the trade off really should be chonk armour vs losing out on a talisman slot
                                              Or just beef up the poise on lighter armour a little, I can understand mages getting splattered but I do still want my fashion souls (Blaidd really doesn't look like he should be staggered by a couple knicks hmm?)

                                                I understand the argument for percentage bonus for high poise builds, but I'd rather It gave flat bonus, so I could have more fashion souls options without being staggered by everything

                                                  I don't have any stats to confirm it's related to this talisman... but I noticed that with a poise of 133 and using the fingerprint shield, I got hit so hard by the golem dude in the capital that it made me do a somersault backwards and I just landed on my feet without missing a beat. My other characters it would have been like an ant holding up an acorn while getting stepped on by a fat kid.

                                                    This moves poise breakpoints from 51, 56, 63, 111 to 38, 42, 47, 83. If you have 42 poise without it, it's worth using to be able to roll out of a single heavy attack or animal bites. But jump attacks, great weapons, charged attacks, getting hit more than once, most boss attacks will still stagger you.
                                                    Great Epee charged attack does ~100*2.5=250 poise damage for instance, often guaranteeing a follow up. Two daggers hits should be around 63.
                                                    In most situations, using the great-jar talisman and heavier armor should be better.
                                                    Fia's Blessing, Poise Physick, and Ironjar Aromatic last 15/10/40s.

                                                    I'm only using it to wear a cool looking hat and armor + heavy greaves and gauntlets and still have 56 poise.

                                                      my vote is make this give a flat 30-40 poise but make it unreasonably heavy. like 5 or more miyazaki's or something.

                                                        If you're looking for Poise to stop getting interrupted during spells or swings: I recommend the Ironjar Aromatic (perfume item, craftable) or the Leaden Hardtear on your Mix Flask. The 10~ 20~ Poise you'll get from this won't change anything.

                                                          Would be great if poise did anything in this game. They totally destroyed heavy weapons in this game because there is no hyper armour worth mentioning to begin with, and every boss staggers you no matter what.

                                                            That means that the more poise you have the more you get out of this talisman.
                                                            So the people that have low poise and want a boost with this talisman wil get less out of this talisman then players that have the tankiest armor in the game making themselves even tankier.

                                                                        In which case, you'd want at least 39 poise in order for this talisman to give you any noticeable benefit. Otherwise... Maybe use something else.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          SL 150 dex builds can casually hit 100 poise and turns the meta into a giant dad ninja bleedoffs, complete with the poise flask and complimentary talismans.

That's exactly the point, it's actually well designed because they made it so it will benefit those who are already engaged in a high poise build. This is fair because having high poise requires stat investment, this talisman rewards the players who have invested in high endurance builds. It wouldn't be well balanced if someone with 20 END could have similar poise as someone with 30 or 40 END. Not to mention strength investment which goes hand in hand with high endurance builds since larger weapons have higher hyperarmor thresholds. Dex and caster builds have their own sets of benefits that strength builds don't, it's reasonable that such builds shouldn't have similar poise to strength builds.

PCs who will benefit most now are the ones who already invested in the endurance and probably another talisman to wear the armor with high poise, and even for them that bonus will never be as high as 40. It is fair.
