      Does a higher scaling of bloodtinge increases the chance of stunning / parry enemies? I think about my beloved Evelyne. (Sorry for bad english, german)

        the rosmarinus is in the area before the big alien boss, room with many werwolfes on the right in a small passage (the cosmic eye watcher badge). also allows to buy poison throwing knifes, i think.

          To the Wiki Host - The Flamesprayer is acquired after the (SPOILER ALERT) Cathedral is accessed. From there, return to Gilbert who states the reason why he is ill, not to worry about him and on the second conversation (meaning you have to talk to him twice) he will give you the weapon. It isn't after the Cleric Beast but after the Cathedral is accessed. <br/> <br/>- M

                Help?05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                I'm still a fairly new player(level 50), my character is mostly a close-range fighter, meaning that most of my points are on stamina, vitality and strength with only ten bloodtinge, also i rarely use firearms unless i'm facing an enemy that's larger or is equipped with a gun as well, but the hunter pistol is becoming less and less effective as i move along. Anyone have any advice as to which firearms would be best for my character?

                  Very Lacking05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                  It's unfortunate the firearms were done so poorly. The Cannon was more or less overpowered, thus the patch. The Flamesprayer and Rosmarinus feel somewhat sloppy for a fast-paced game. Evelyn and the Hunter Pistol feel almost identical. I think next time they should really add magic to your left handed weapons if Bloodborne gets a sequel. Perhaps they could have also added different types of ammunition too like fire-based bullets and explosive bullets or allowed firearms to be used in your right hand too. Disappointing really. Sigh ...

                    • Rollshot and "third person shooter"05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                      Since I can't edit the page I'll just add this here:<br /><br/>A bit of interesting trivia, not much, but you can perform a rolling attack (or rollshot) if you shoot and projectile firearm (piston, canon, blunderbuss etc.) after a roll. Your character will be recovering from the roll animation and will stand on one knee to shoot the weapon. This does not add any special properties to the attack and can only be performed when rolling meaning that you need to be unlocked, so isn't too practical.<br /><br/><br /><br/>Another bit of trivia is that you can use the Monocular and still shoot with your gun, you even get a reticle, turning this into a third person shooter almost. This is useful if you want to hit a specific target like aggro a moving target or Patches in the nightmare.

                        Bloodtinge05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                        When I first played bloodborne, I knew there were guns, but I didn't know that they were tied to the bloodtinge skill. So when I saw it, I assumed it would be some kind of awesome new blood magic mechanic where you got different kinds of sacrificial daggers or something to sacrifice some of your health for amazing spells or buffs, you know, since the game is based on the fact that the Old Blood is all powerful. But no, just some gun mechanic. Guns are nice and all, but just so boring. I wanted to see more things like the Chikage in item form or something like that. At least I can look forward to new DLC...
