Elden Ring Ash of War: Glintstone Pebble Notes & Tips

  • The damage of Glintstone Pebble scales with Int, upgrade level, and weapon affinity for the projectile, as well as weapon's Int scaling value and weapon's AR for the magic-imbued thrust.

      It is a very good ash of war but it is very punishable if you arent being overly aggressive/ greedy. Strafe the pebble and get an easy parry off the follow up thrust. Or use the funny golden dinner plate shield and reflect the pebble for +- 1000 damage and guaranteed panic for the pebble user.

        More like Glintstone Tactical Nuke. Yes, its hard to land, but one single mistake by an enemy, and this will oneshot litterally everybody, unless you are like 99 Vitality, Embered, and wear full Bullgoat.

          Another unbalanced ash of war, I couldn't poise through this or survive with full bull goats armor and bull goats talisman, with 60 vigor, and erdtree favor plus 2

            Don’t see it noted anywhere, but I’m using misericorde and there’s a unique heavy attack immediately after casting this with it

                  For me this thing one shots everyone in pvp. And my character is like level 160 and every one has at least like 50 vigor and still one shots. I have only seen one person tank this ash of war ONE SINGLE PERSON. I can’t tell you how much this helped me kill gankers. Best ash of war for int builds hands down.

                    This is THE ash of war for mages in pvp. Extremely high damaging, but be sure to time it right or you will be punished.

                      When i played full int playthrough ive got taken by surprise how much dmg this ash of war did. Never had to use normal attacks at close range, only spam Glinstone Pebble

                      • After further testing, I have found that the thrust portion of this AoW scales both with weapon AR and INT scaling value.

                        Tested with Rogier's rapier and Cleanrot sword, very close AR values of 579 and 581 respectively. While Rogier had a tad lower base AR on Magic infusion, it has B scaling on INT instead of C, resulting in 1368 damage on thrust over 1304 for the Cleanrot. 5% difference.

                        Tested with Cleanrot sword and regular Rapier, both having equal scalings and C on Int with Magic infusion. 581 base AR for Cleanrot, 573 for Rapier. 1290 damage on thrust for Rapier, 1304 for Cleanrot. AR and thrust damage differences are not fully equal (1,38% diff for AR and 1,07 for thrust), but base AR definitely plays a role in this AoW combo damage output.

                        I would say the output trade-off is 1 level of INT scaling (D to C, C to B and so on) against 5% base AR increase. The Pebble part doesn't care about either though.

                        All testing was done w/o character buffs, on 46/55/80 Str/Dex/Int. With 25% damage increase from stealth (although % differences are the same without it), on a Troll outside Secluded Cell.

                          sure...blocking you from pulling my pants down doesnt take away from the absurd thrust to my balls immediately after. pvp spammers who run into mobs and act awesome when winning are scum, running away 1v1 is even sadder. but my 75 vigor tank shouldnt be staggered than one shotted

                            Another stupid imbalanced Ash of War with a true hit combo that deals over half of your maximum hp while being 100% staggered while wearing Bull Goats Set + Talisman. The balance of this game is such a mess.

                              I like how with flaming strike you can easily roll out of it if you get hit by the first part but this one stuns you into a giant thrust that almost guarantee's death, good balance.

                                I'm surprised I don't hear more people complaining about this skill. At least Rivers of Blood can be parried, and Moonveil isn't too difficult to dodge, this thing is quick, high range, and OH GOD the damage, the damage straight up feels unintentional. I've just never survived this attack, in my 600 hours of playing this game, not once have I had enough health to survive it, I use 55-60 vigour with Erdtree Favour and Crimson Amber Talisman and it kills me through that every. ****ing. Time. Everyone who uses it just fishes for 1 shots without a care in the world, yes half of them play like **** but even then you slip up even slightly and boom, get hit by the pebble, get hit by the blue tipped nuclear bomb up the ass.

                                  While this is great fun to use in PVP, it definitely needs a tone down.

                                  I tested it in the Omen at the underground roadside (NG). Full combo hits around 2500 dmg at 50 Int, with shard of Alexander.

                                  I've not encountered anyone who wasn't one shot by this with that setup.

                                  But even the projectile does about 700 dmg (on players) about twice as much as the sorcery, which doesn't make any sense.

                                  • This one definitely feels overtuned. 80% of someone's HP is less of a pebble and more of a glintstone high-caliber rifle. The first part of the ash of war should be toned down a lot in damage but I think the follow-up lunge makes sense.

                                      The pebble part needs a hard nerf to its dmg...

                                      Its absurd that the pebble alone can do nearly half if not more of players HP with 50+ Vigor

                                          Been using this as one of my swaps on the godskin stitcher. It is 100% OP in terms of damage. Even on just a heavy infused stitcher the true combo does well over 1000 damage to some people. I think the true combo should stay, but the damage should be scaled back. Even if this did half the total damage it would still be very effective. The only saving grace is that the pebble isn't too hard to dodge but it can catch players off guard and if that happens they take a ton of damage. I'd imagine this does even more damage on an INT build as well.

                                            It honestly feels like when fromsoft was just about finishing development on the game some random intern must've accidently applied a 500% damage modifier to every ability in the game.

                                              poise is absolutely a joke in ER i swear. this **** breaks my 73 poise and true combos my 60 vigor with Erdtree+2. to death (NO Scarseal or Soreseal or any damage income increases)
                                              Power Stanced Katanas deal MORE poise damage than a colossal weapon
                                              this is why people run Targoth gear with Horn Talisman because of this **** (someone test if this Ash of War can poisebreak Bullgoat, prob can)

                                                    I do think it does need a damage nerf in particular the pebble part. No way the pebble part should do colossal greatsword poke damage maybe just make it deal as low damage as the normal glintstone pebble but keep the stagger so the 2nd thrust still hits and deals huge damage.

                                                      I am running on a new build relying on magic affinity weapons. Lordsworn's Greatsword is the only GS with 110 crit and this ability combo with the heavy attack staggers so hard and hits so hard making you stunlock enemies hard. It's so broken both in pve if you get the hit down its automatically 1k+ damage on the combo with a riposte to finish.

                                                        This stunlocks you if you get hit and then there is nothing else you can do as you watch your 1800 HP disappear instantly.

The most terrifying thing is that there are so many ashes of war like this one, and all it takes is a little bit of fame for it to become the new RoB. Waves of Darkness, Glinstone pebble, quickstep, sword dance, and even lesser known ashes like spinning slice are all extremely powerful, if not broken, when used right.

                                                              • Granted the damage on this is maybe a tad too strong, but I don't think it's super busted. This weapon art isnt "spam the whole field around you for 10 seconds" like rivers, it's a tiny pebble that has small range and if you can dodge a pebble from a sorcerer, you can dodge this.


                                                                That's What I like about this weapon art, and why no one talks about it yet complain when they die to it. It's not cheese spam. It's to catch the cheese spam, or the people who.wait forever to hit you like they are ds3 backstab fishing. Believe me, if you just spam this, you'll get punished fast.

Everyones saying how high the poise dmg is but even 7 hit pebbles in a row do nothing against normal bosses. The thrust afterwards is also stupidly slow, what on earth am i missing? why's everyone saying its so great?

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                          Then you learn it poise-breaks most normal enemies (and some bosses) into a true-combo with its thrust for something like 5-10x the damage of the sorcery.

                                                                          Shorter range than some "casting" AoW options (e.g., ice spear), but very high damage and reliably poise break for the FP cost, in my experience. Bizarrely powerful for its relatively unassuming appearance.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              • Quite simply one of those most slept on Ashes in the game (from a pvp perspective). This scales with Intelligence and weapon upgrade level. It will be boosted by Shard of Alexander (both the pebble and the follow up attack) and anything that scales magic damage. The follow up attack will benefit from Spear Talisman if you hit during an attack animation. I did about 150 PvP matches with this on a +25 Magic Nightrider Glaive and a Glintstone Kris (to compare their Ashes). I used a set up of weapon minimum str and dex and 80 int, Shard of Alexander, Ritual Sword Talisman, and the magic boosting physick. The pebble into R2 is a TRUE combo and is insanely lethal with this set up. I encountered one target that was able to survive the combo, and I can't be certain of his setup but the combo still hit for about 2300 damage. All the rest it connected with died in one combo. I went more in depth on the differences the Kris offers compared to this version but the TLDR is the Kris offers a further distance follow up R2 movement and a charge aspect on the pebble for mixup potential but the standard version won out heavily in overall damage considering much harder hitting weapons than daggers can equip it. Hope this helps.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

The pebble looks like it should only sting, but so many people just sorta try to tank it only to have it do like almost half their health. Downsides are the range is a bit short on the projectile.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    Open with Pebble and surprise them with Moonveil when they try to close.

Enough people don't expect it to hit as hard as it does, especially followed up with the thrust (and the amount of people not leveling vigor) meaning lots of quick kills. But you have to get used to the range, I still sometimes fall just short with it.

Can stunlock many enemies, fulfilling the role of a nice quick parry or creating an opening for opponents that are blocking.

                                                                                                        Wasn't expecting much from it initially, but its a huge utility piece. They are both different and serve different functions. Kinda wish they gave the AoW a slightly different name to reflect that, would be less confusing for people.

                                                                                                              Weapon base damage does not seem to affect ash of war damage. glintstone pebble will do as well on daggers as greatswords.

                                                                                                              Glintstone pebble seemingly continues to scale with int (as you might expect) even if you change the scaling of the weapon to something else.

                                                                                                              But having the weapons scaling match the ash of war does seem to give a damage boost.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                I assumed it was flatly inferior, but if it has good stagger then it might be useful.
