visions of pointless...
That thing should have been a red lump that refresh when resting, a single use item is so... useless.
"It is currently unknownif the item has any other purpose." Well you see you also need Ashina Lettuce, Mibu Tomato and the sauce from Fountainhead Palace. Use Flamevent on it 3 times, then consume at once to instant kill all bosses.
This item gives a speed boost that lasts until you die. Which, due to fighting Emma, wasn’t very f$&@ing long...
How is it better than Normal Red Lump?
What a wasteful thing to kill Kotaro or Jinza for
After finishing Doujun’s quest line, I got “Master & Pupil Red Bead” instead of this item. Please, can anyone tell me why this happened?
Sounds like a Philosopher’s Stone reference to me. -Ellegos
I think the main purpose of this item, as well as Jinzaemon's is to convey lore
The item description is kinda vague. I was thinking that maybe after you die while using it, you retain the less flinch ability but regain the resurrection ability. Anyone know if that is correct or is it just a one and done item?
Seems very useless
