Soooo... a flail ey...?

So, is it a mace with a little rope on the end, or is it considdered a whip?
If it is the former, then heloooooo new main weapon
A flail is depicted as a chained ball of blunt or spiky death but in this case it seems to be more of the whip that very religious devoted people in the olden times would use to repent for a sin.
someone said in another comment that it's classed as a whip but has a club moveset for the R1. so in that sense, it's akin to a flail
It appears to be a cat-o-nine-tails, though I haven't bothered to count said tails.

For anyone wondering:

It's classed as a whip but uses the R1 of clubs (doesn't have the new mace/club hyperarmor, though)
The R2 casts miracles
The weapon skill costs 25 FP, hurts you twice, and boosts miracle power by 25-30% for two minutes
The weapon skill isn't bound to the Rose, and will apply to any talisman and chime
Nice. Thanks for the infos. Other question : What are the requirements and stats scaling ?

10 Strength, 12 Dexterity, 17 Faith. When fully upgraded at +5, it has C Strength, E Dexterity, and A Faith scaling. The Faith scaling adds physical damage, as with Blessed weapons.
Aaaah, finally a weapon that scales amazingly with faith. That's amazing.

Thanks a lot.

Don't get your hopes up. It's strong for a whip, but that's like saying dry paper makes better armor than wet paper.
Is the spellbuff decent compared to yorshkas (like 242 at 60faith)?

Spellbuff at 40fth is somewhere around 198. I don't know how much it has at 60fth, sorry. The spellbuff isn't terribly high compared to other talismans and chimes overall, but at 40fth it only has roughly 20 less than the rest of them.
that seems pretty good, as with only 40 fth that spellbuff is comparable to the sunlight talisman at 60

how much damage does the WA do to yourself? the WA seems pretty good, as it either frees up a ringslot used by Ring of the First Son or they stack to get you like 45-50% extra damage

Looks to do about 1/5th to 1/6th of your HP in self damage. The animation takes a long time, but the long duration should be worth it.
Since this is classified as a whip but has the move set of a mace, can it be parried?
I would assume moveset takes precendence over the weapon classification
"Princess required ahead, therefore Praise the Praise the Sun!"
Interestingly there is a kind of rose known as Mariandel Rose
Does anyone know if the miracle boost applies to weapon buffs?
Nope sorry
So it does boost weapon buffs or no?
Probably not, since the boosting rings that currently exist have 0 effect on weapon buffs either. it doesn't buff spell bonus (which buffs scale from), just the outgoing damage of your miracles
Bdsm weapon art (Lennyface.exe)
i think that you have to get the flail then go ng+ then somehow give it to ariandel because in the trailer we saw him whiping himself
that is true and he searching for it ... wierd
But we can hear him whip himself, before we move the statue...
