      This talisman isn't worth it in the long run, but if you want to use miracles without dishing out 5000 souls for a Thorolund Talisman from Petrus at the start of the game, and you didn't choose cleric, this talisman is free and available basically right away. All that to say that a regular talisman isn't COMPLETELY useless.

        "Recommended for Faith levels: There are better talismans available for any Faith level." so... useless then i guess

            Might be a little late, but who knows? Someone might be new to the game because of remastered. It’s not optimal on purpose because of its availability. If I were a starter class other than cleric, and got faith up early enough for Thorolund talisman to become obsolete, this would be the best you would have early in the game. If you know what you’re doing though, you’d never get use.

              So this thing is completely useless in every way? Seeing how the Cleric starts out with a Canvas Talisman, it looks like there is absolutely no reason to ever use this unless you REALLY love the way this thing looks and want to min-max your Fashion Souls.
