      For all the twink invaders running around at rune level 1 invasions with full bull goats and rot pots: why

      • Anonymous

        No arcane scaling, but this pot does stupidly high SR build up. Proc rot in two hits for late game bosses like maliketh or godfrey, actually quite a good cheese item for melee builds which don't have faith or arcane. SR dealt with this pot deals less damage to bosses than that dealt with rotten breath.

          my thought process is, since its a 2v1 and i could also just instead make a 1 shot moonveil/rapier build, i shouldn't feel bad for using this on my perfumer build.

          • Anonymous

            this is downright stupid at low level. if it doesn't kill you instantly just from landing, the immediate rot tick afterward will usually do the job.

              Absolutly broken in pvp and should not inflict SR in one hit, especially because you can bearly dodge them

                Should scale with stats instead of do such high build up, another item that would be balanced if duping didn't exist.

                  From my testing it looks like the Scarlet Rot inflicted by Rot Pots is identical to the Scarlet Rot inflicted by weapons, that being (Max HP * 0.0018) + 15 per second for 90 seconds (as opposed to spells like Rotten Breath which inflict (Max HP * 0.0033) + 13 per second for 90 seconds.)

                  Furthermore, the damage dealt by Rot Pots aren't boosted by the Jar helmet or Companion Jar talisman.

                    Really like how you can't dodge these. Really fun to run into an invader throwing these around in Limgrave because I don't want to cheat in every consumable like everybody else on PC.

                      I like the fact that the butterflies are limited in number, because it lets you know that the person who uses them in pvp is almost certainly a duper.

                        Spoiler warning -- I chucked 7 of these in a row at Radagon and he didn't give a ****, bosses seem to resist these significantly more than their resistance values imply. It might be the cloud-like effects, poison/frost mist ashes of war seem to have the same weakness

                          If I'm not mistaken, the recipe can not be obtained until Radan is dead, because that's the only way into the rot swamp, right?

                            Any idea on how much buildup does this apply? The problem: is throwing all 10 pots to malenia (1481 resistance) at a steady pace enough to apply rot to her?

                            • 2 rot pots inflict rot on fire giant in 2nd phase, unluckily he is left with a sliver of health when the rot runs out so you can't completely cheese him with this, you need to do 2/3 more attacks with your weapon to kill him, still pretty easy kill.

                                The recipe for this can be found due west of the massive temple entrance in the Lake of Rot. Exit the temple north from the Grand Cloister grace and head to your left. Look for a small intact structure -- the chest inside of it contains the recipe for this item.
