      Currently doing a hunter tool (no weapons) build. My recommendations for absolute must grabs are augur and executioner. Augur is solid damage as well as is able to backstab for SUBLIME damage. Executioner is decent long range damage to function as a (kind of pricey) better pebble (Yes, I played the whole game until forbidden woods fist only)

        Man, I was thinking it would have been awesome to get something like the hand that the rite keepers use to summon fireballs. All these pyromancer enemies in the game, and we never once learn how to summon fire. All we get are lame molotovs.

          An easy way to get the whistle is Afro Valtr and have him follow as you take the elevator down and he will follow to his death the same goes for the hunter when you reload the area

            HOW CAN THIS GAME NOT GET PS4 PRO SUPPORT!!! IT IS LIKE KILLING AN ARTFORM!!! THE ALIASING IS TERRIBLE!!! If this HAD SUPPORT 4k native full stop; or 1440p w BETTER ANTI-ALIASING and betting frame rate would be FINE!! NO other graphical upgrades needed; just AA and resolution; and maybe FPS.. The game aesthetically is a WORK OF ART; ruined by the technology used.. SUPPORT PS4 PRO FROM SOFTWARE!!! YOU HAVE THE TIME!!!!!

              They really need to tone down the cost of some of these tools. Especially A Call Beyond and considering it's lack luster use outside of boss fights (and assuming they are weak to arcane). An arcane build is nearly impossible without massive investment in the vit stat to regen blood bullets. I'm hoping in future patches or dlc(?) that they would tone down the cost or atleast put a rune that lowers it so arcane builders can have something more than just high discovery. If their intent was to stop people from magic spamming, it worked

                Where do you actually see these in your inventory? Not an arcane user at all, so I never really thought about it until I saw the trophy. Now I just wanna see which ones I do and don't have

                  I'm in NG+ and I went to pick it up, except I got a kin cold blood. I've never picked it up before. Does that mean I have to make a new character for it? -.-

                    The Augur of Ebrietas is in the lecture building 1st floor. It is in a side room to the theatre with all the guys in it.

                        In case anyone's wondering, or hasn't seen the trailer, there's a new arcane spell which seems to be of the same nature of soul arrows. Apparently it's shaped like an eyeball or something, and it doesn't cost too much to cast, but I can't find the article referencing it for the life of me. With the new Moonlight Sword and Fire Hammer arcane looks to be a lot more viable class. Hopefully that means more variety in PVP as well.

                          This page is wrong, the one about the Whistle itself is right, could you please fix? You can just copy the thing. "Forbidden Woods, trade with Valtr or kill him. (Needs testing)" Is a prerequisite of the Whistle, it alone doesn't give it to you. Truth: You need to achieve the highest rank in the League (crush 5 vermin) for Valtr to die. After 5 Vermin, exhaust his conversation, and reload in the same area. Or kill him. The key here is just that Valtr dies, IN ORDER TO PROGRESS TO THE NEXT STEP OF GETTING THE WHISTLE. "Forbidden Woods, crush 1 or more Vermin, awaken at the Forbidden Woods lamp and kill the invader." Wrong. Truth: There is no invader. After Valtr dies, a hostile NPC appears near the close-by Lantern (you have to reload the game to get Valtr's item). Once you kill him, you get the Whistle. He uses a Hunter's Axe with Fire Paper.

                            Its requirement is 16, not 15. It's listed properly on its individual item page, but it needs to be changed on the Hunter Tool list.
