Great spell when using the sanctum mace.
Stacks with Poisonbite Ring and Ring of Resistance. Makes areas like Harvest Valley and Black Gulch much less of a pain.
oh boy! it's like wolf knight shield's passive - or the flesh bite ring from ds3, but on a spell.
I thought it was temporarily added poise, to be honest. :/
For optimal results pair this miracle with the Ring of Resistance, it definitely slows down the status effect buildup.
Update: Idk why I couldn't find this before and this page doesn't mention this (the contributors/editors of these wikis don't care anymore it seems) but I got this piece of info from the wikidot page for Perserverance: "Increases resistance against Poison and Bleed by 150 points, Petrify and Curse by 300 points, for 120 seconds." I guess when I "tested" it I barely had any poison resistance (from my armor and stats).
I still don't get what this does. Even if you answer me years from now someone please explain to me what it does? I thought it made you temporarily immune to status effects like poison, toxic, and bleed but nope I still got poisoned with this miracle active. I have done plenty of faith builds (dex-faith, str-faith, quality-faith) but I only ever used this once and that was to test it out.
