      Take it with you to meet Placidusax, or don't. It'll help if you get hit by its lightning a lot. That's pretty much it.

        Use against lightning incantations. Do not use against lightning L2 users, use protection of the erdtree instead. The latter are dex builds and have the absolute best spells in the game via L2 and cover all damage types except sacred. They have access to better pyromancies, glintstone, and frost spells along with better lightning than your faith build. And beast roar even gives them a pure physical spell to spam too.

          Is there a page listing which buffs don't stack? I'm also not that sure about what is classed as a body buff. Are body buffs like the transparent sphere after eating boiled crab or anything that has an effect on the body or armour like golden vow and dragonbolt blessing?

            Correct me if Im wrong, but, isnt this using the picture for "protection of the Erdtree"? The golden Lightning Fortification picture has electricity all around it and smaller bubble

              There's a bug (no pun intended) where that beetle either doesn't appear or never reappears after escaping once.

                As of 03/15/2022, you receive the full benefit of this spell during PVP
                (as opposed to how gimped the Drake Elemental Talismans elemental damage negation gets when in PVP)

                W/ no armor, Lightning damage WILL reduce by 60%
                (If you're wearing armor, of course damage negation is multiplicative so it won't add a flat 60% extra, but it will work as you expect in PVP as it does in PVE)

                  This is actually dropped from a golden dung beetle in farum. After the dragon temple lift site run across the courtyard and drop down to the area with a sleeping dragon, the beetle is there.
