      i've been trying to figure out the percentages for the bonuses since they aren't listed. The consensus seems to be that it provides less damage than War Cry (~10%), I think it may be around ~8-9% attack power (hard to measure with all the different damage types and resistances), ~5% defense boost, and ~10-12% stamina regen (not sure if stamina regen is a % value or if it adds a flat amount of stamina regen per second). Overall, not a bad alternative to War Cry. For the same FP cost, it lasts longer (30 sec vs. 20 sec) and balanced by the longer cast time (3 sec). Unlike War Cry, this only changes 2H heavy attacks, which can be good for some weapons. I believe this is considered a weapon buff, so these smaller bonuses can still be useful if you stack with stuff like Golden Vow or Commander's Standard. The stamina regen is the kicker though - it's not as much as the Green Turtle Talisman but it's the only stamina regen buffs in the game in AoW form (and 1 of like 5 in general - GT Talisman, Greenburst Crystal, Great Turtle Shell, Pickled Turtle Neck, I think Flame Grant Me Strength gives a small unlisted stamina regen buff, and this)

        This is basically still a war cry and works like a warcry, only with some other buffs.

        It still changes your R2 exactly the same as war cry.

        The stamina recovery buff is significant and really good for a war cry build.

          This changes the moveset of charged fist weapon R2’s to a running charge followed by a long punch. Pretty useful for closing short gaps.

            Being a weapon buff and so changing weapons won't keep the buff, best I'd say is to use it on an left-hand weapon, it only lasts for some time but the defense and stamina buff is helpful (it's only that weapon getting buffed in DMG, main hand doesn't.)
            Personally been using on my double occult straight sword 80 arcane build with either RKR or Storm Stomp.
            Though using another ash of war is also preferable like thunderbolt or any ranged ash of war to catch someone off guard or like phalanx blades.

              This is seemingly considered a weapon buff, not a body buff, for some reason, as I realised because my freezing grease was dispelled a couple of times when using this. That means that enchanting your weapon will remove this buff and using this while your weapon is enchanted will remove this buff too. It also means that you can stack body buffs like Exalted Flesh, Boiled Crab etc. with this.
              This means you could use Golden Vow, Flame Grant Me Strengh and this all together for some nice physical damage.

                Seems to also give a poise bonus when using the charged R2's. I tested this with Highland Axe in subterranean shunning ground omens. When using War Cry and doing a charged R2 the omen was able to stagger me and knock me out of the attacks, but with Braggarts Roar the charged R2 was able to poise through the Oman's attacks.

                  So I decided to test how this works with Dual wielding. I used two Beastman's curved swords at +24, both with this Ash of War. It seems that the damage increase only effects one weapon, not both. So I two-handed my offhand, did the roar, then went back to dual and roared and that made the damage for both weapons increase. Interestingly, it also stacked the defense and stamina regen effects. Don't know how viable that is since it lasts 30 seconds and takes about 3 seconds each roar. Hope that helps someone!

                    This ash of war changed the charge attack style on the Omen Cleaver. Idk about other weapons. This could be very interesting

                      Tested to see if golden vow stacked with it and it does. Used the Leyndell Knight near the Artists shack.

                      Tested with one handed thrust attack

                      Braggarts roar only: HP 1581-1335=246 damage
                      Golden Vow only: HP 1581-1342=239 damage
                      both: HP 1581-1354=227 damage

                        Couldnt test with numbers, but naked the omen-cleaver dropping enemy in stormhold castle killed me in 5 Hits without that buff. With Buff it were 7 Hits. While the Animation my defense from sting damage dropped from +8% to -19.6%. While the Buff is active the stat Page doesnt Show a difference. So there is a defence buff, question is if it Stacks with golden vow or oneils commander buff.

                          Just tested the defense boost and it works. At the Artist's shack in western Liurnia, against the Leyndell knight and two attacks, the Shield Bash and the lightning attack where he slashes downward and you get zapped at range:
                          Against the Shield bash:
                          No Roar: 1503hp - 1079hp = 424 damage
                          With Roar: 1503hp - 1101hp = 402 damage

                          Against the Lightning bolt:
                          No Roar: 1503hp - 1178hp = 325 damage
                          With Roar: 1503hp - 1194hp = 309 damage

                          So non-physical seems to work as well.

                          Note: The Roar Medallion had no effect on the damage reduction. Weapon used was a Greataxe, NOT the Highland axe.

                            • My weapon's R1 attack power while two-handing is 789. With Braggart's Roar it becomes 848 (~7.5% increase). With War Cry or Barbaric Roar it's 864 (~9.5% increase). War Cry duration is 20s. Braggart's Roar duration is 30s. The time between pressing the button to use the ability and being able to move my character again is ~1.5s for War Cry and Barbaric Roar and ~3s for Braggart's Roar. Data is from patch 1.03. Added duration and cast time notes to this page.

                                Still only increases attack damage for the weapon it is used on after the update. Hopefully we will get that defense boost next update, boys.

                                The buff icon shows up though, but the numbers on the stat screen are not increasing. Could always be a visual bug ofc...

                                  It seems to only boost the AR on the weapon you used it on so dual wielding won't buff the second weapon.

                                    Appears to be bugged, does not increase attack or defense according to shown stats on status screen. Also does not change R2 in any way, cant see any use for it unfortunately

                                      Braggart's Roar affects two-handed R2s the same way as Warcry, turning them into charges, but leaves the original one-handed R2s.

                                      No idea how the stat boosts are, though.

                                        It doesn't say, but I'm fairly sure it affects Strong attacks the same way Warcry does, turning them into rushes.

                                          This ability is bugged. It gives attack boost and changes your charge attack into a running Heavy attack but does not increase Defense and Stamina Regen at listed. Basically it seems to be coded as War Cry since it is identical to that battle art in everyway.

                                            This ash of war can be found on Braggart's body.


                                            After finishing his questline, he will drop an iron ball and a seedbed curse as well as his bell hearing, this ash of war is equipped on the iron ball.
