      is this really any good? i've been trying to use it but it has 0 poise while casting it and it's so slow_ to top it all off you don't get the actual buff until you pull the weapon out of the ground and if you get interrupted before that you get no buff and just wasted 16 fp... even if you manage to get the buff up it only lasts 30 seconds

        Use this with a weapon with split damage for maximum damage output. If your a strength build use a fire enchantment, dex use lightning and so forth. Since normally you cant buff weapons with split damage this gives you a buff on said weapon.

          This is amazing on morning star, it allow you to boost its 2H running Heavy Trust attack from 132 poise damage to 145 wich allow you to poise break anyone with 133 poise.

            Checked this in Yapped:

            Lasts 30 seconds

            Increases Physical Attack Power by 10%

            Increases Shield Stamina Damage by 20%

            Increases Poise Damage by 10%

              Its interesting to note that you can stack this with Fire Affinity together Flame Grant me Strength and Golden Vow. Use it on high stance breaking weapons and watch as bosses stagger so fast in a few hits.

                This is conceptually the same skill as Ledo's Hammer but worse in every respect. There at least should have been an attack you could do to discard the rocks, again, like Ledo's Hammer. The starcallers themselves do this exact thing when they use cragblade so I dont know what From was thinking with this AoW. If it was a spell it might be worth using.

                  It might be just me, but cragblade is broken. If I have another ash of war on a weapon, use cragblade, it won't appear, but the affinity changes with what I chose for cragblade. So I can have bleed on something like hoarfrost stomp lol.

                    Would this on twin daggers, paired with the poise damage increase physik be enough to reliably stagger someone with the powerstance combo?

                    • Anonymous

                      I slapped this on a heavy thrusting sword and it works great. They already have decent stagger so if you catch someone with a riposte you can basically true combo with light attacks. Also breaks crystalian poise in two hits. Good stuff

                        Do this and roar skills attack power increases apply to both weapons when powerstancing or just the weapon the skill is on?

                        I'm trying to get a weapon buff that affects both weapons in my buff rotation while still being able to maintain fire damage on them.

                          Very creative weapon buff, I like it a lot. Stance breaking needs a slight buff frankly (not including jump attacks), and this AoW needs a slightly larger hitbox on both when you shove it into the earth and pull it up (it's a very, very small hitbox) and be slightly faster so that they effectively true combo, like Lightning Strike.

                            This should have been part of starscourge GS WA. You literally see Radahn doing this. Damn shame it wasn’t implemented to be together.

                              Sucks that this doesn't allow light bladed weapons to hit rocky enemies without getting deflected considering it literally covers your weapon in stone

                                This is meant to be used with attacks that already do high posture damage so use it with: Jump Attacks, Guard Counters and R2s, also two handing a weapon seems to increase it's posture damage.

                                  The stance damage appears to be a percentage based buff rather than a flat amount like other weapon enhancements. On both a twinblade and cestus-type weapon, it still took multiple full combos to stagger Leyndell soldiers with R1s with or without the buff active. Pretty sad, it would have beeen cool to stance break bosses with actual combos instead of spamming jump attack or weapon art over and over.

                                      Easily the best PVE buff for a weapon, **** the AR increase, the damage to stances is what makes this incredible, Elden Ring becomes Sekiro for 30 seconds, I can almost see those posture meters filling up.

                                        It's too late and I'm too lazy to sit down and add detailed info, but here's info that doesn't exist on the wiki I'll add from testing:
                                        Hard to say, but noticeable increase in stance break on shields. Testing was done on weak enemies since I'm too lazy and tired to thoroughly test on tough enemies.
                                        The both shoving the weapon into the ground and removing it from the ground are their own separate attacks. Their damage seems to be relative to special R1s like dash or roll attacks. That said, the stance-break on inserting (while buffed with cragblade already) was able to stance break a shield akin to a dash/jump heavy.

                                        Stance breaking is my favorite mechanic in this game, coming from history with From game where it was possible in DS3 and a focus in Sekiro, it's shaping up to be very nicely woven in. Would love to know how this stacks up against other Ashes for stance breaking

                                        For the record for anyone who bothered to read all that **** or skim here: Glintstone Phalanx is the TOP DOG for Ashes StanceBreak. I have tested on DOZENS of enemies with DOZENS of Ashes, charge attacks, jump attacks, etc, Glintstone Phalanx takes the cake for stance breaking. 1-3 breaks ANYTHING, I mean ANYTHING. If it doesn't it requires stance-break damage during certain animations, or is immune, it's that simple.

                                        • I would actually found this one exceptionally useful, if the bonus would apply to any scaling you choose for this ash of war. It would actually match with magic aand int scaling since gravity stuff is presented as 'sub genre' for spells as well. And then there's the Gravitas ash of war. This could've been a very interesting ash for any build.

                                            Location should be more to the left of where it is marked right now; The scarab is on the cliff right beside the big sword memorial site

                                              Wait what is that weapon in the picture? It isn't Radahn's Sword but it seems to be a similar large curved greatsword. Anyone know if that's an actual weapon?

                                                STR Scaling increase is quite decent! Sixty-Nine STR +19 Heavy Greatsword went from 752 to 827 when 2 handed! Interested to see how the poise damage and stagger buildup increase. It's speed being faster than the warcry class if I'm not mistaken could lend to it having a niche in both pve and pvp. Excited to see where this goes.

                                                  Cragblade can be found West of the Impassable Bridge Site of Grace (this page doesnt mention its a site of grace). The Maplink doesnt actually show either the site or the bug carrying the weaponart.

                                                    This increase the strength scaling on your weapon. However, it acts as a weapon buff , so it will overwrite anything else that you current have on it. For example, if you use scholar's armament and then cragblade, only cragblade will be applied.
