      The nerf was obviously well-deserved, but at this point an occult nagakiba with double slash works just as well if not better, it does similar damage but with only 1/3 of the fp cost and no damage falloff

        This feels like cheesing but it’s truly not because it’s so easy to punish and it takes so much stamina that it’s just as easy to get absolutely destroyed doing it as it is to melt the boss

          when i use corps piler i just do a flip slash and not the ash of war that should be used (not the x slash with blood) does anyone know why i cant use corpse piler

            the actual blood part of the attack is still very good for rollcatching, it just no longer does a bajillion damage and bleeds them out 4 times in the process.

              I can do a bleed build with double slash and I’m pretty sure that I’ll mimic corpse piled with out the nerf

                This skill is useless, double slash consume less FP and with a blood or occult infussion is far more powerful, in order to make a true balance this skill should use less FP, tested with the haligtree knights with 70 arcane I used the skill corpse piler two times meanwhile with a blood infused nagakiba and a occult flamberge I only needed to use double slash one time, in conclusion this nerf is a joke there is no logic in this "blance" changues, this was a good skill because of the blood wich gives range but now since you need to hit with the blade to make it work this is now a double slash that consumes more that double FP and do less damge

                  Even as of 1.06, this skill is still insanely overpowered at 80 Arc and meeting the minimum physical requirements on ROB. Testing on Malenia it took ~4 full combos for 1st phase at varying distances, with 2nd phase being roughly the same (maybe 5 or 6 full combos) while mostly staying out of actual melee range of the sword. Hopefully it's been nerfed a bit more when it comes to PvP (the patch notes do not make it clear if it's just been nerfed in online play), but as for PvE it is still ludicrously powerful.

                    Just got hit by a nerf, the weapon's damage and bleed buildup gets weaker the further away the enemy hit is.

                        Fire greatswords with bloodhound laugh at this, smashed a lot of people trying to do fancy stuff using just brute force

                          Does anyone know what percentage of damage of the weapon art is physical and how much is fire. I’m trying to work out if flame protect me is better than black flame protection to counter this. I’ve won atleast 900 invasions and the prevalence of double or triple Rivers of Blood is starting to get to me.

                              Not even worth using, it doesnt do enough damage and bleed buildup. Wish FROM would buff it as its basically useless.

                                They should quadruple the focus requirement to make this thing impossible to spam, or it can drain hp, both would work fine

                                  This skill is the latest meme. It's so significant amongst all available skills people actually took it seriously and begun to develop counter builds, just for RoB. Hilarious.

                                        Kinda wish they pulled a Chaos Blade with the weapon art where it causes bleed buildup for using the weapon art. Would help ward of the RoB weapon art spam.

                                        Oh well down the path of other Soulsborne weapons getting nerfed into the ground.

                                          My idea for balancing it:

                                          Damage per hit reduced by 33%

                                          Bleed build-up per hit increased by 20%

                                          Reasoning: This ability can 100-0 you within the first few hits. It's ridiculous. It's a bleed weapon, not a oneshot weapon, so reducing its damage while increasing its bleed frequency should keep it viable but also fair. There are abilities in the game that are harder to land that are less rewarding than Rivers. Part of that problem is that the abilities need buffs (Scarlet Aeonia and Death Lightning) but part of the problem is also that Rivers is way too strong.

                                          These changes would also make it a highly potent anti-shield tool, since Bleed continues to stack even if the hit is shielded. As it currently stands, Rivers is a potent anti-shield while also being...anti-everything.

                                            Cool skill, feels good to use. Shame that it's exclusive to a cringe weapon that only weeb nerds use. Wish this was an ordinary Ash of War.

                                              Just something to consider: a Nagakiba w/ double slash is a bit shorter range, but much cheaper in terms of fp cost. A Cold or Blood Nagakiba are both good options in terms of affinity. Pair a Cold Nagakiba w/ Rivers of Blood, and use the Nagakiba on main hand to apply frost, then use Rivers of Blood's fire element to reset the frost so you can proc frost again. Obviously both will also be applying bleed. Of course, spamming Corpse Piler should still be stronger than what I suggested if you aren't worried about the fp cost

                                              • If anyone wanted the same skill to put on weapons it's called Double Slash (Don't let the name full you it does the same full combos if you keep pressing minus the blood)
