How to utilize and the best talismans

A great choice for a surprise in PvP duels. The Tooth Whip is best used in Power Stance with other weapons of this class. This is because it will allow you to observe the enemy from a distance while dealing massive amounts of poison. As for the second whip, my top picks would be Hoslow’s petal whip or Thorn Scourge for their ability to apply blood loss.

Like all whips in the game. The best talismans for those who want to utilize the Tooth Whip are: Diapers made of Divine Skin, Winged Sword Insigniaand Rotten Winged Sword Badge. While the former will allow you to heal after performing subsequent attacks, the latter two will escalate the damage of continuous attacks.
