    • This Ash is just underwhelming in all departments. Its range is short (shorter than Piercing Fang), its stamina usage is extremely high, its damage is low, its poise damage is low so it can’t actually stagger anyone to get hit by the rest of the attack, and it’s recovery is very high. At least two of these things need to be adjusted in order for this Ash to see use in PvP.

      It’s a very well-balanced Ash of War, I only wish the people that balanced this Ash handled the balance of the entire game. In an unbalanced mess like Elden Ring, a balanced Ash like this is useless.

        My soldier of god, rick build ruined by not having this ash of war be allowed in my weapon.

        How are we supose to honour his Legacy if we can't experience his adventures are selfs (T_T)

          What I want is a version of this where you can perform a heavy attack to swing around you. Like Gundyr's halberd in ds3/

            A tremendous shame you can't apply it to greatswords. I guess my Rick cosplay will never be quite complete.

              This needs to be applicable with colossal swords. It has to happen for dlc or even in next patch if that's possible. Idk I just think it would be really cool for colossal swords

                There are a lot glaring issues with this ash of war, 1. It’s stamina cost: This cost way to much stamina if you charge it fully. With 35 endurance, Radagons soreseal, and eardtrees favor +2, this ash of war still took more than half of my stamina bar.
                - The stamina cost needs to be reduced in order to no be severely punished for using the skill.

                2.) long wind: It takes about 3 seconds to fully charge this skill, seems fine on paper but that’s pretty bad when considering players have more than enough time to gain distance and punish you.
                -Reduce the start-up of animation and increase the distance of the uncharged variant.

                3.Finally, the active hit boxes and poise damage are not enough for this skill due to how latency and poise works In pvp. A player who is very laggy can roll straight into you and not get hit a single time, and even on a good connection if you managed to clip some with this skill they can just poise through it and punish you.(I know this has more of an issue with the mechanics of the game rather than this Ash of war, but it’s still a problem regardless.)
                -Add A LOT more active frames and increase the poise damage.

                This ash of war is fine but how poise and latency works in this game it’s only really useful at chasing down low poise spell casters, besides that it’s pretty mediocre.

                  Description is wrong. As the other person in comments stated it is "above" and not "below" the poison pods. It cannot be locked on, like they stated as well, even after clearing the pods and any amount of jumping. A bow or crossbow is mandatory to get it down. After that I recommend swapping to magic to finish it off since the angle makes it nearly impossible to deal with via melee due to having to be backed up from the spot it will fall at.

                    It's located north, slightly east, of the Fallen Ruins of the Lake grace. The scarab is hanging under the bridge above a bunch of Land Squirts (poison pod enemies). I think it was out of lock-on range, so I used a bow to knock it down.
