"Sacred chime forged from the soul of Nadalia, Bride of Ash. Nothing appears sacred about the frightful design of this chime, but it does have the benefit of raising one's faith.
The oozing, frozen iron forming the bell seems to anticipate a scream."

Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforced with Petrified Dragon Bone to +5.
  • Balanced B starting scaling on both Lightning and Dark.
  • Increases Faith, the lower the Faith stat, the higher the increase. (5 Faith grants a +8 bonus, 50 Faith grants a +3 bonus).
  • Has a cast speed of only 25 resulting in spells taking about 5 times as long to cast compared to other chimes.
  • Recommended for low faith Cleric (approx 5-20 faith) for simply wielding it while casting miracles with other chimes wielded with another hand along with other faith boosting items.

The higher the player's [Str, Dex, Mag, Fire, Light] stat, the higher the [Attack Bonus: Stat] is (found on the player status screen). The higher the scaling letter, the higher the percent multiplier applied to the [Attack: Stat].
This resulting bonus damage is added to the base physical damage of the weapon and is shown in the equipment screen in blue numbers as a "+ X".
Durability: The weapon's HP, when the durability hits 0, the effectiveness of its attacks become weakened to the point of almost uselessness. When an items durability is low, a message will come up saying "Weapon At Risk!" at this point the weapon does not perform at it's best.

Stability: How well the player keeps stance after being hit
Attack Type: Defines what kind of swing set the weapon has.
Regular(R), Thrust(T), Slash(Sl), Strike(St)

      They should have just given it low faith requirement. It has abysmal slow cast time so might as well save you the equipping of another chime on your other hand and use that weakness instead. It's only real use is to allow you to cast non scaling/already high base effect buffs and heals with another chime on your other hand with low faith. You can also min max your damage but it's too finnicky.

          Greetings fellow Dark Souls players I have finally found a use for this terrible chime, ever wanted to look like Gwyn? Now you can, just cast sunlight spear with this chime and imagine epic music playing in the background as you cast it.

            The Faith boost it gives only works in the first slots of the right and left hand, and the faith stat boost is different depending on your faith, because when I was at 20, it gave me 6, and when I was at 35 it gave me 4?
