The Estus Flask is so ugly like why did they have to make it that ugly orange color? It should be a dull green with an orange glow when you use it like the original. And they got rid of the Estus dripping animation...like whyyyy
This is ds1, not 3
"Estus" is derived from the latin word "Aestus" (Heat, Ember)

Aestus Estus is also the name of Saber's (Extra) sword

This is actually great to know.
thats pretty cool
why do people leave toxic comments on people who make good lore connections?
imagine saying that dark souls 2 becomes easier because you have so much healing from gems, disregarding the clear reality that you can just offer 3-4 humanity at a bonfire to get a whopping 20 estus uses. Ok im bout' to head out.
20 estus doesn't sound like much compared to the hundreds of healing items you can very easily get in dark souls 2 also most players probably wont even know what the Rite of Kindling is or where to get it the first time playing the game and even if they did they probably wont be able to defeat pinwheel. basically Dark souls one makes acquire 20 estus an extremely difficult thing to do while dark souls 2 throws dozens healing items at the player and has merchants that sell infinite amounts for a relatively cheap price

not to forget that unupgraded estus doesn't heal that much and there is only 1 obvious Firekeeper Soul in the game. You'd have to either kill some Firekeepers or find the hidden Souls in Blighttown/New Londo/Dukes Archives to actually heal a reasonable amount. And 10 Estus+1 is a significatly different story than 20 Estus+7...
What do you mean, "Most people won't make it past pinwheel? He has some dangerous attacks but he dies before he can use them!
i just used the first fire keeper soul i found i didnt know u had to find actual fire keepers lmao rip
Dont worry, I played with flusk+0 even after ornstein and smough and almost finished the game with flask+1, wont make big difference for ng

You can clear your first game cycle easily enough with an unupgraded flask, but later cycles it becomes an issue of needing to heal to prevent being killed by a second hit, so an upgraded flask becomes critical.

The estus flask upgrades to +7 likely because there are only seven unique fire keeper souls. One in Undead Parish. One in New Londo Ruins. One in Blighttown. One in Duke's Archives. And then one each for the three surviving firekeepers (Firelink, Anor Londo, and Quelaag's sister). It is possible to fully upgrade the estus flask without killing any firekeepers with just two game cycles, in fact you can go from +4 to +7 at the very beginning of NG+ by using the master key reverse shortcut path. You will need to kill Quelaag to get access to her sister though as collecting both the Blight Town and the Undead Parish firekeeper souls will trigger Lautrec to kill Anadtacia before the bells are rung.
The souls are unique to each character, not to each NG, which means if you pick up a fire keeper soul you cannot pick it up again, ever. To get +7 you'd need to kill all the keepers to get their souls and use them to reinforce on the next NG cycle.
What's the frame data for the estus flask, like how long it takes to drink one.
