Lazulite Shuriken


 Shuriken blessed with the favor of the Fountainhead Lapis Lazuli. Costs Spirit Emblems to use.

Its piercing edge heavily damages Vitality, and damages Vitality and Posture even if guarded. These blades do not slow down, even after striking an enemy.

The lazulite blue trail of light it emits in flight is reminiscent of a shooting star.

      Strangely enough, fully charged attacks with either the Phantom Kunai and the Lazulite Shuriken may perform more or less effectively depending on the enemy and I assume this is the same for their uncharged attacks. In conclusion, this upgrade does not necessarily deal death less efficiently than the Phantom Kunai and, in most cases, the Lazulite Shuriken seems to out-class the Phantom Kunai.

        In my second play through, I used this against the chained ogre mini-boss near the beginning and he cowered in fear like I used the flame vent or something. Unsure if it has a little flame effect or I staggered him.

          This is basically gouging top with slightly higher damage. I've never directly benefited from the piercing aspect and only the last hit pierces but it's my go to shuriken. Arguably the most worth lazulite upgrade

            Still does chip damage, but a pretty good amount. 16 charged attacks of these can basically get the Demon of Hatred down to about 60% hp, so they're very useful for dealing damage if you're too far away while he's doing a fire throw attack. Also good if you're just a couple of hits away from depleting a health bar and low on health.
