Elden Ring Ash of War: Black Flame Tornado Notes & Tips
- Will grant Flame weapon affinity by default, reducing base damage as well as strength, and dexterity scaling in exchange for adding faith scaling and fire damage.
- If used uncharged, the player will slam their armament into the ground after a lengthy windup, creating a high damage short-lived AOE around the player, knocking most moderate-sized enemies into the air.
- If charged, the player character will spin their armament to create a fire tornado around the player up to 5 times, with each hit dealing fire damage and applying the black flame debuff (Take damage equal to a % of your max hp over a short period of time) before slamming their armament into the ground.
