It's a good spell for when you're in a pinch and the opponent already knows all your moves. I use this from the beginning of the game just to master it I tend to always get to use in combat
"...spreading chunks that stagger opponents and do heavy poise and stamina damage"
-Implying that Poise even works in Dark Souls 3
It works.
"It works"
No, hyper armor does. Poise doesn't.
Hyper armour is based on your poise. It definitely works, just not the same as it did in DS1.
Working as intended™
Boulder heave+poison/acid mist super op in hallways and just about every where else
This spell single-handedly got me through the Pontiff Knights in Irithyll; was so tired of their seemingly unlimited endurance and sweeping attacks that I said 'to hell with them' and equipped this. Stunlocking them never felt more satisfying, and with enough INT/FTH you can kill them with three rocks to the face.
Turns Tsorig into a joke
It's the stone spell from kings field 1 (north America) and the disc throwing miracle is alot like wind cutter
Is it just me, or has the vertical limit of this spell been severally nerfed?
