The Rose of Ariandel is a unique weapon that can be useful on any type of Faith build.
Despite being classified as a whip, it actually has the Club moveset, and as a consequence exchanges the range of its single-tailed cousins for a much shorter delay before attacks. However, despite using this Club moveset, it cannot be parried, like other whips.
Its strong attack will cast Miracles, making this tool a hybrid weapon. As a spell catalyst, the Rose of Ariandel is very strong, possessing impressive Spell Buff that scales strongly all the way up to 40 Faith. However, past this point its scaling drops off significantly, meaning that it is easily overtaken by other catalysts at 45 Faith and beyond.
Its skill, Awakening, buffs the wielder at the cost of HP, increasing the damage of all offensive Miracles by 25% for 2 minutes. This allows the Rose to cast powerful Miracles in its own right if the wielder's Faith is 40 or lower, or to be used as a casting aid to boost the power of other catalysts at values of Faith above 40.
