What are resonance signs though?
Seems like a good Patch. TWoP is still effective, but worse and you can lock-on to RoF users now (for those who can't take the time to learn how to not lock-on). Vow of Silence was a good one to boost, but Homing Soulmass and stuff nerfed?? I could barely ever hit anybody with those......
Glad to see the Giant Blacksmith sell Large Titanite, I hated running from Firelink to the Merchant in Sen's to buy them..... although the Twinkling is a bit of a bummer to see.
Glad they nerfed those waayyy to good Normal Shields, they were too good for what they are. I'm disappointed with the Crystal Ring Shield nerf though, it seems barely worth using doing only 250.......
I think they handled the Scaling Vs. Elemental weapons thing very well. They made it so Elementals are still viable, but scaling is better. I'm wondering which weapons get the upgraded Scale letters......
Overall the online changes seem to be good. Cracked Red Eye doesn't break if 'Failed', Host gets full Souls for a Boss, Invasion Restrictions changed.... made it like Co-Op hopefully, within each others SL range.
I'm really glad they fixed all the glitches and the 'Input Delay' bug!!
P.S. Resonance signs are something that shows up if another player used a Miracle in their World. If you see it and use the Miracle (not sure if it has to be the same one they used??) it gets an 'Upgrade' and performs better. So a Heal would heal more HP, Lightning Spear would do more Damage, etc.
