      You can hyperarmor through moonveil with this. It’s also really fun to make rot breath spammers part of the landscape.

        Good luck in the next duel if you get hit by this. Lost almost 2k HP with 28% absorption today, almost broke my neck irl

          Rotten greataxe, this ash of war and frost damage are great together. Takes some time to get used to it, but atleast Mohg goes down fairly quickly

            This Ash of War will not benefit from Claw Talisman, but will benefit from Alexander's talismans (10-15% versions)

              This is a literal win button on colossal swords like Greatsword. It pairs perfectly with the unbreakable hyperarmor, staggers more than most of your attacks, does a decent chunk no matter what enemy you attack and it's almost as fast as the other Ashes like Impaling Thrust or Unsheathe. One of the best strength ashes in the game and you can slap it on any weapon and it would still be effective.

                The stance Motion value of of this is stupid high, it is 600, basically it multiply your normal light attack stance damage by 6, so a giant-crusher that does 16.8 will end up doing 100 stance damage, this will pretty much break the stance of any ennemies in the game in one hit, and bosses/giant type ennemies in two, add in the amazing damage, hyperarmor, and little recovery frames, and you have one of the best pve ashe of war in the game, its also really effective in pvp since it pretty much can't be punished easily thanks to patch 1.04 buff.

                  Halfway through the game on my Str/melee character I realized I had stopped actually trying to learn patterns and started just kind of lazily trading hyper armor Lion flips with my CGS until I won every fight.

                  Great PvE skill, turned me into a filthy casual, 10/10 would flip again.

                    Does anyone know what this skill actually does to your damage? like is the damage here similar to a fully charged heavy attack or is it more then that? is there a specific calculation for how it increases your damage? Also does this ability scale in damage directly with your AR like eochaids or is it more like normal ashes and only based the stuff listed in the wiki?

                      Quick question
                      I've used it on my current moon axe, such a quality of life
                      What will be your recommended weapon to use it if want to have a decent reach?
                      What is your go to when rocking this for ur fun time?

                        This thing is a PVP trading nightmare. If somebody does literally anything that relies on breaking your poise and staggering you, do this first and it is a hard punish

                        • It should be noted that this weapon Art retains it's some of it's poise damage and HA even when used with no FP, all it seems to lose is the high motion value on the attack.

                            This AoW is perfect at what it does now (a close range punish). Amen. The ONE suggestion I'd make is to give it those jumping i-frames when you flip so you can use this, when timed correctly, to punish thrusting weapon running attacks or some such. Partly because it'd make sense, and partly because that'd be some of the damn coolest outplay potential.

                              Fun fact: this still works when out of FP. It deals reduced damage, but said damage is still roughly equal to a heavy attack. It also benefits from Alexander’s shards even when out of FP. I was testing with the Golem’s Halberd and it’s genuinely phenomenal, I don’t even invest in mind anymore

                                Is the poise damage the same regardless of the weapon? I wanna know if I can break poise of bosses faster with a colossal weapon or if a katanna gives the same effect (when using the skill ofc)

                                  Does it have the same posture damage with different weapon type? Like, Claymore and Greatsword will perform the same amount of guard break with the AoW?

                                    This or Stamp (Upward Swing) for a PvE Zweihander character? I feel like I'm getting the same utility out of either (hyper armor and then a big chunk of staggering damage).

                                        Usable on "Swords" includes the Twinblade by the way. Fun way to give that weapon a single strong attack to break poise with.

                                          Amazing when somebody’s trying to heal and thinks they’ve distanced enough, only for you to pull this **** and one shot them

                                            Killed an imp 10 times with, and without, the claw talisman to test if it counts as a jump attack. It does not seem to give any more damage as it was the same amount of damage all 20 hits.

                                              I used this against one of the NPC invaders (late into Ranni's quest line). Dude was outclassing me in damage and health by a ton - it was basically a boss fight. However, this art pancaked him every single time, it was hilarious. Find out where an opening big enough for this is, pop it, boom, combo broken. It's not as powerful as other arts (like Hoarfrost Stomp) but the stopping power is legit.

                                                The ash of war is my favourite in the game high range flip
                                                I’ve got it on the giant crusher so both L2 and R2 are just flips

                                                  This thing feels very balance.
                                                  Decent damage/poise damage, alright tracking, has huge hyper armor (I don't think you can be knocked out of animation), can stun most enemies. The downside is the long wind up animation so prepare to trade damage.

                                                  There're more broken things out there? Yes. But if you want a no bullshit melee build, totally would recommend this.

                                                    Identical to Artorias's signature slam attack, except that it's slow as hell and you only move forward about a foot...so..not really that great.

                                                      You can find this at Fort Gael it is not too far from the Impassable Bridge and Caleid, dropped by the lion with a bladed arm. It's strong, but spirit summons can be used to face off with it.
