They should increase the duration, 15 seconds are a joke
Its because it doesnt take off life from you, like DS1
Apparently you didn't read the page or spell... PW removes 30% of your max hp over its duration.
Power Within was my favorite buff in DS1 and seeing it return in DS3 was a great surprise.... till I saw the stats. 15 seconds is way too short and the damage buff is minimal compared to a sacred Oath + Deep Protection combo. Plus the later lasts much longer. Increase the duration to 30 seconds and I will consider using this spell again, otherwise it is a waste
Power Within stacks with Tears of Denial tho, while the miracles don't. This is invaluable for Morion + RTSR PVE. Most fights will be over in like 5 secs anyway.
15 seconds. Seriously.
I know right. Because 15 seconds in a 15 min fight is worth risking dying.
Basically, it runs off before even landing a hit. They need to buff this thing to at least 40-45 seconds. I'm surprised it doesn't requires 2 slots.

''Removes 30% of your hp over the course of the duration.''

This can be used at low level builds if you use your stats right: https://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls3/120701

TLDR: Always have 10 vigor and unembered
Max heal while in power within 10 hp per second: Bountiful Sunlight, Sun Princess Ring, any Chime weapon art. (invasions at around undead settlement because level 21)
Nullify power within damage the cheapest way: Bountiful Light, Sun Princess Ring (invasions in high wall of lothric because level 11)

I did not put blessed weapons in there but they wont heal you almost at all because you need to upgrade them to make their healing delay better. You can also wear full thorns armor but hey that's just being an *** Kappa

Tfw you can't make paragraphs in wiki comments section apparently FeelsBadMan
10/10 would use on giant dad build
For the extra challenge of getting gud of course
This spell is great for invasions. I found that victory in an invasion was more about applying enough damage at the right time than who can drain the most estus. Invaders don't win the battle of attrition, they need overwhelming force. This gives that. Between the stamina buff and the damage boost, if they don't run, you can easily drop someone in fifteen seconds.
Buff to 45 seconds and make it drain 45% health and 30% bonus damage and it would actually be worth using
How bout 45%? Might as well continue the pattern.
its really good as is with great weapons, be glad noone uses it or noobs would complain and From would nerf it to the ground like they do everything
This thing got buffed. Lasts very long now and doesn't suffer from diminishing returns. SL 35 +5 weapons power within + Lothric Knight UGS w/ Gold Pine and I get 632 AR. Great Club I get 501...pure physical...SL 35...+5 weapons...GG.
