This should have had way more rot buildup. Two attacks with the antspur rapier does more rot buildup, plus its buffable.

What bothers me is that putrid avatars *don't use Erdtree Slam* - when they ground pound in combat it isn't holy damage, instead a bunch of corrosive scarlet diarrhea sprays out from underneath them.

However, I can see why they didn't make that its Ash of War.

I believe both putrid avatars in Elphael have a chance of randomly dropping this, on top of the first one always dropping it. The one that normally has this as a guaranteed drop just gave me two of them, instead of the usual one.

confirming this, just had a second one drop from the corpse after the first guaranteed drop happened

If you're optimizing for butt slam damage, use the other staff.

I've seen this drop randomly as a cooperator on two separate occasions.

Honestly strange, staff of the avatar has B tier faith scaling and A tier strength scaling, this weapon has rot but just doesnt get the same numbers as staff of the avatar in the end, should have A tier str aswell with maybe C tier faith scling?

You found the point. They trade off damage for rot.

Kind of fun offhand w the antspur, you can surpise ppl with it if youre patient enough. Not a stellar weapon generally speaking.
