That's an interesting proposition. I'll test the Chikage and ruminate... Thanks for sharing. ^^

I've been out of it for some time. Which barrels did he mean?

And this might just be because of a trace +5 fire damage.

On the other hand, Firearm damage is Blood damage, so that may be why Blood damage is supposed to blow up the barrels.

Forgetting all that, there's the possibility that this fits the "Bloodborne Blood is Dragon Blood" hypothesis.

I bring that up as well. Pthumerians have some knowledge of pyromancy so I attributed it to her Cainhurst/Pthumerian roots.

+ 5 fire damage? does the chikage have it naturally

i was talking about the barrels in the hunters nightmare where nomaly there would be a old man but he is a bomb, we usually just roll to break the barrels but he decided to do a running attack and they exploded in his face

I tested the exploding barrels in The Fishing Hamlet.

It's Blood damage that makes the barrels explode.

I'm Pretty Sure The Reason The Chikage's Blood Attacks Set Of Explosives Is Because It Scales With The Bloodtinge Stat. The Bloodtinge Stat Directly Affects Quicksilver Bullets And Firearms.
