      For large enemies this should still do the damage intended and heal you but no grip animation it would make this a lot more fun and viable

        Someone should really make a list of the foes that this can work on. Might as well be me, so here goes:

        Alabaster Lord

        Black Knife Assassin
        Blaidd
        Celebrant
        Cemetery Shade

        Fallen Hawks Soldier
        Fanged Imp
        Fire Monk
        Foot Soldier (Godrick, etc)
        Frenzied Villager
        Glintstone Miner
        Glintstone Sorcerer
        Guardian
        Highwayman
        Kaiden Sellsword
        Kindred of Rot (Pests)
        Knight (Godrick, etc.)
        Large Oracle Envoy
        Lazuli Sorcerer
        Man-Serpent
        Marionette Soldier
        Miner
        Misbegotten (except flying variant)
        Misbegotten Warrior
        Night Maiden
        Noble Sorcerer
        Nomad
        Nox Monk
        Nox Swordstress
        Omenkiller
        Onyx Lord
        Oracle Envoy
        Page
        Perfumer
        Putrid Corpse
        Rotten Duelist
        Sanguine Noble
        Servant of Rot (mushroom men)
        Silver Tear (including the blobs)
        Skeleton
        Soldier (Godrick, etc.)
        Starcaller
        Thorn Sorcerer
        Twinsage Sorcerer
        Vulgar Militiamen
        Wandering Noble

        Note: I didn't test it on any of the bosses (because I was already half-way through the game when I started compiling this list), but it will definitely work on boss variants of the enemies I tested.

          This is an invaluable healing source for casters that invest the majority of their flasks into magic.
          It also works on far more types of foes than one might think: It will work on almost any foe that has two arms, two legs, and is shorter than twice your height.

            Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but Lifesteal Fist is incredibly broken when paired with infusions. There seems to be some sort of strange interaction between flat buffs and the crit modifier where the damage is multiplied in some way? I’m not entirely sure how it works, but after getting one-shot by somebody running Scholar’s Armament with it I decided to do some research; unbuffed, my Caestus Lifesteal Fist did ~600 damage to the Banished Knights in Farum Azula. Adding Holy Weapon alone gave me grabs for 2000+, and that was without the scorpion charm, Alexander’s Shard, etc… used right, this thing is busted

              Oversight: The grab is blocked by poise even if the attack lands. Fromsoft, please fix as soon as possible. This ability should not be affected by the target's poise in pvp.

                I don't understand how this skill works. On regular soldier it barely deals damage and on the spirit goat people from siofa river it does super high damage, one shotting them. Is this a anti spirit attack?

                • This skill doesn't work with the cerulean dagger talisman, although i'd need to do some more testing to see if it's not a critical attack, or it just isn't affected by that. Either way, good item to pair with this, because then you only need to backstab someone once to get back another use of it.
