      Should be 10% boost and lesser should be 6%.
      would make it more Viable we don’t need Ds3 level boosts because the base power of spells is stronger in this game than in Ds3

        Meanwhile in Dark Souls 3: Ring of First Sunborn (+20%) and Morne Ring (+12%)....

        Wtf is this pathetic +8%? Completely worthless.

          You can get the talisman earlier than it says. I just did the Millicent quest through the part when you kill the Godskin Apostle in Diminula Village, talked to Millicent after, killed her for her talisman, then came back to Gowry's shack and killed him for this talisman.

          • Anonymous

            I have played through Elden Ring and done Millicent's quest at least twenty times. Today was the first time I encountered Gowry crying. I hadn't seen him since before giving Millie the prosthesis and at this point I had made it to the Haligtree, ready for the sisters battle. I talked to him and bought Pest Threads but was unable to get the Desperate Prayer emote. I attacked him, he turned into a pest and disappeared. I could not get absolution. After fighting the sisters and claiming the needle, Gowry had reappeared. I exhausted his dialogue and killed him, and got the bell bearing and talisman like normal. So, if you attack him while he is crying or otherwise make him vanish without getting the talisman, don't lament, try just finishing Millie's quest and going back.

              bit ridiculous how far you have to progress in the game to get this, provided you don’t want to cut millicents quest short

                As of 1.10 you can still get flock's canvas talisman at least as early as giving Milicent the unalloyed needle.
                Exact steps just in case anyone else is worried about messing it up: Gave needle > rested at grace so she could heal up > exhausted dialogue and received prosthesis-wearer heirloom talisman > went straight to gowry without resting --- turns out he doesn't process her death until rest/reload, so received a pat on the back and restarted the game to him in tears > killed him and got flock's canvas

                  Still bugged in PvP with holy incantations (1.10). Same thing for golden order seal, radiant gold mask, Godfrey icon. My god, this bug was already known in 2022, come on!

                    If I had to guess why this talisman has such a low damage boost, it is most likely because of the fact that this can stack with other effects. If you wish to make a flame build, you can get the fire scorpion charm which raises 12% of, you guessed it, fire damage. This plus fire scorpion equals a 20% boost to fire incants, and it can go even higher if you include the incants' respective seal. Am I fine with what we have now? Yes. Would I be accepting of higher percentages for these talismans? Absolutely.

                      I helped Millicent, I kept going to Gowry waiting for him to cry and all he would say was this. He has his right hand on his head and says something like, Millicent, Malenia, do you detest us, so utterly. I thought I was too late cause he was not "crying" or what my definition of crying is. well I hit him with my sword and he died and I still got this Flock's Canvas Talisman and Gowry's Bell Bearing.

                          I’ve read the relevant wiki pages, but just to be extra-doubly sure, you CAN get this talisman after either betraying or helping Millicent, right?
                          You just have to kill Gowry after you complete the quest at the Haligtree, right?

                            This, the other Canvas Talisman, Godfrey Icon, and Radiant Mask are bugged in PvP and do NOT increase holy damage incantations.

                                8% sure is a waste of a talisman slot. Even if a spell does 4000 damage, this only gives 320 more damage or 480 with faithful's too for 12% and two wasted slots. Generally, this increase doesn't mean much more than a single more cast at worse when they are way better talismans. Meanwhile, Shard of Alexander does 15% and doesn't stack with Warrior Shard. Fromsoft really do hate incantations and sorceries users.

                                  If you were hoping to get her Prosthesis as well don't do what I just did and perfor a ritual killing of her than him at his shack. No Prosthesis. No pest threads. I gassed the commander and lost all my honour and stabbed my favourite maiden in the back with a rapier just for flocks.....

                                      Finished her questline, by helping her with the invaders. Beat malenia. Used the needle...now shes lying there in her clothes with rot blowing off her, gowry isnt crying, just sitting with his hand on his head....any idea on how to advance him to start crying?

                                        Quick tip: if you only want the flocks canvas talisman and nothing else from Millicent's questline you can get it very early. All you have to do is kill Commander O'Neil and give the needle you get to Gowry. After reloading the area and going back to his shack he will give you the fixed needle. Then you have to give the needle to Millicent reload the area by resting at the site of grace then kill Millicent and then go to Gowry's shack and kill him too and he will drop the flocks canvis talisman and his bell bearing. Hope this helped

                                          This should've affected the healing spells like Urgent, Lord's Heal or Erdtree Heal. Not the heal over time. To be precise it would heal 8% more of the total final heal these spells heal. Like if we take Lord's Heal, this spell heals a total of (Scaling × 4.20). So with a 300 scaling seal. It would approximately heal:

                                          300 × 4.20 = 1260

                                          If this talisman affected that 1260 hp then it would heal:

                                          1260 + 8% = 1260 + 100.8 = 1360

                                          Here 8% of 1260 is 100 (Not taking the decimal value). So the talisman would have effect to heal 100HP. Not much but still would've made it more useful for others. Since it's said to "Greatly increase potency of incantations".

                                            This really should've had effect on healing incantations like Urgen Heal, Lord's Heal or Erdtree Heal. Like it does 8% more of the total heal from those spells.
                                            For example, Lord's Heal spell heals "Seal Scaling × 4.20). So if we have a seal with 300 scaling, it will apparently heal.

                                            300 × 4.20 = 1260

                                            And if we this talisman affected the total healing you get, it would be like:

                                            1260 + 8% = 1260 + 100.8 = 1360

                                            Here 8% of 1260 is 100.8.
                                            The final effectiveness of granting just 100 hp more isn't much it would still make it useful for those spells.

                                            • If this stacks with anything else that buffs incantations then 8% might not actually be that small... depending on how the math goes, at least. This + F,GMS + BDC + Dragon Maw? idk just tossing ideas.

I killed her after exhausting her dialogue then went to Gowry who was crying and killed him for this drop. Interestingly enough, I could also buy Pest Threads from his Bell even though I didn't talk to him after giving Millicent the arm.

                                                    Tested 2x: I got Mellicent to Elphael, killed her and got her prosthesis, then went to Gowry and he was crying. I killed him and got the Flock's Canvas Talisman. There was no need to kill the tree spirit in Haligtree.

                                                    • I've only ever found Gowry already dead with the loot next to him. Then again I always forget to go visit him right away after completing Millicent's questline, so maybe he just dies after some time if you don't visit?

                                                      • Is not multiplicative with the Faithful's Canvas Talisman. Tested with Giantsflame Take Thee, otherwise unbuffed, using a seal with 347 Incantation Scaling. An uncharged cast (in stealth, to the same enemy every time) deals 1,219 with neither, 1,316 (8% increase) with the Flock's Talisman, 1,267 (4% increase) with the Faithful's Talisman, and 1,365 (12% increase) with both.

                                                        Some spell pages that list their available buffs claim that they're additive with each other, and they're correct. This page is not.

In the stat box (upper right corner) the characters in the hyperlink are "ncantations (" whereas it should be "Incantations". I hope this helps.

                                                                        • Anonymous

There's a weaker version of this called the 'Faithful's Canvas Talisman' with different art - the singers only take up little less than half the talisman art, while this version has them covering it near completely. Only weighs 0.7 compared to this which is 1.0.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

This talisman can be only useful a slightly better than +5 faith talisman(which is literally trash) only if you have 70+ faith. There's not really any talisman that can boost enough incacination except scoprion shits(really hard to use it in pvp)

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                          The damage of the lightning spear was 1072 without any talisman, 1115 with Faithful's only, 1158 with Flock's only, 1201 with both.
                                                                                          Tested on the Albinaurics in the Mohgwyn Palace using Erdtree seal +10 with 80 FTH.

It becomes so easy to feel like all 4 of your talismans are auto-pick, and then never experiment with anything else.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

You can do the good ending where you help her kill her sisters, she dies on her own, and go back to Gowry and kill him for his. I exhausted his dialogue first and then let him have it bc he deserves it lol

                                                                                                  • I can confirm, this does not work on healing-over-time incantations such as Blessing of the Erdtree or Bestial Vitality. Tested for both healing and duration, it has zero effect.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Right after curing her (so that she stands and thanks you and gives u the +5 faith talisman), I killed her. Rested at the grace site. Weent to Flock. Killed him and he droppeed this t alisman. So it can be gotten much quicker if you don't care about the sombeer stone or the other talismans you can get from milicents questline

He was simply acting normally as if I hadn't done Millicent's questline, and I couldn't kill him to get the talisman. I figured I might be locked out because of this bug.

                                                                                                          After patch 1.03, I went to check in on him and he was in the 'despairing' state like he was supposed to be in! I managed to kill him successfully and got the Flock Talisman! Seems patch 1.03 fixed this issue.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                            Got him to finally react to it; and killed him for the talisman. (post 1.03 patch)
