Elden Ring Ash of War: Sacred Order Notes & Tips
- Due to the lack of Faith stat requirements, this Ash Of War provides the best option for players with low Faith stats to acquire Holy damage for their weapons. Though the Order's Blade Incantation provides a higher increase in Holy damage overall, and other Ashes Of War can provide the same access to Sacred weapon affinity, the additional buff from the Sacred Order skill in addition to the Sacred Affinity produces the best Holy melee damage without stat requirements.
- Adds 10 percent damage increase to both weapons

Buffs spell damage 10% All out going damage is buffed 10% actually, against any enemy. You do double melee damage to undead, 10% spell bonus to undead or other. 2.5% in pvp... which still beats a second golden order seal in pvp considering the seals bonus is allegedly bugged in pvp.
I cannot find this scarab to save my life. I have scoured the area marked on the interactive map, I have tried looking in both day and night, I have seen a message saying "skill ahead" but there is neither sight nor sound of the bug in question. Am I missing some crucial detail?
What weapons come with this AOW?
Seems like a worse sacred blade, but its real strength is that it can buff the holy damage of both weapons while dual wielding.
Sacred order off hand + sacred blade main hand lets you double buff the main hand. Make sure you've got both sacred infused for big numbers. Can slap on golden vow too for even more silliness.
It stacks when using two weapons.
if you're doing split physical and holy damage, consider sacred blade instead if 10% AR is less than 85 straight.
This AoW seems really good, even for high faith. If you want to infuse your weapons with flame art, therefore making orders blade unavailable, this will add free holy damage. Stack with FGmS and boom.
Secretly strong as hell. Boosts all weapon damage by 10%, regardless of type. Applies to offhand weapon if equiped. Stacks with Golden Vow, unlike Shared Order and Last Rites.
Even though Sacred Order looks like a standard holy weapon buff, it works more like a clunkier, holy version of Flame Grant Me Strength and buffs up all holy damage dealt for its duration.
Flame Grant me Strength buffs both physical and fire damage by 20% (15% pvp) while this only does holy at a measly 10%. On top of that, Flame Grant Me Strength can benefit from Old Lord's Talisman. I think that this either needs a buff to its duration or its strength to make it a viable alternative. Buffing both would be nice, but probably op.
60 seconds instead of 30 seconds would differentiate this skill as a weaker, but more convenient Flame Grant Me Strength. Faith builds that want to stack another damage buff with Golden Vow would get to decide between fire damage for higher burst, or holy damage for consistency.
Doubling the bonus to 20%(15% pvp) to match Flame Grant Me Strength would be a simpler buff that would still be great.
Lasts 30 seconds.
I wish it had a longer duration. Most of the incantation weapon buffs last for 90 second. I wish the AoW buffs had at least half of this duration since they are not really a spell and therefore shorter and less effective. Half the duration would be nice, so you don't have to reapply the AoW like every 15 seconds.
Thought i would throw in my two cents. This buff is better than people realize. Use this right before a fight and it stacks with Golden Vow (Golden Vow is a character bound attack buff, character buffs like that don't stack) Sacred order is a weapon buff which stacks with Golden Vow's character buff. Shared order is a character attack buff which overwrites and is overwritten by Golden Vow, does not stack. Also Sacred Blade can get you into trouble, it's a narrow line attack with a long wind up in order to get that buff. You're better off using sacred order and golden vow pre-fight to get max possible gains prior to your first strikes in melee range.
Use Sacred Blade. This buff, Sacred Order, is immensely inferior.
Sacred Blade Ash may be glitched proving far more damage than it should.
Tested at SL1 with two Lordsworn Longsword +0 on a Death Rite bird in Liurnia near academy.
Sacred Order: 161 damage with 232 AR (almost identical holy).
Sacred Blade Ash: 258 AR but was dealing 340 damage.
Clearly, despite the short buff duration Sacred Blade vastly exceeds the performance of Sacred Order, in this case by more than 200%. It also uses far less FP.
I'm not noticing any holy damage application, though I do get an AR increase.
the location is blatantly wrong. it's in the Altus Plateau to the north-west of the Abandoned Coffin site of grace.
Shared Order is strictly better than Sacred Order unless you need to absolutely destroy skeletons. Sacred Order lasts ~30 seconds, Shared Order lasts ~45 seconds. The damage buff both give is the same, the casting speed is the same, the FP cost is practically the same (Shared Order costs 1 more FP...) and Shared Order also extends to allies.
Also, Sacred Order only buffs your WEAPON. Swapping your weapon out will completely remove the buff. Shared Order buffs your CHARACTER. You deal additional holy damage with any weapon, even if you swap your weapon out.
It is called "Shared order" not "sacred order" in the game.
Sacred Order gives your weapon Holy damage, while Shared Order gives that damage to you AND allies. Sacred Order lasts ~30 seconds and costs 18FP, Shared Order lasts ~45 seconds and costs 20FP.
Both of these buffs scale with Faith, giving +30 damage at 40 Faith and +31 at 45 Faith (tested with Two Fingers Heirloom)
From my testing against the soldier next to the Gatefront grace and the Skeleton next to the Black Knife Catacombs grace, it looks like it gives the same amount of damage against normal enemies, but different damage against undead enemies.
For reference I am using a Sacred Uchigatana+8 (16 Dex, 45 Faith, no damage boosters) and using the guard counter maneuver. I also compared these buffs to the 20 second buff from Sacred Blade.
Against the soldier, I dealt 341 with Shared Order and the same 341 with Sacred Order. Without either buff, I only dealt 310 damage. Sacred Blade adds 80 damage, so it dealt 390 damage.
Against the skeleton, I dealt 630 damage with Shared Order, but 840 with Sacred Order. In both cases, the skeleton completely died. Without either buff, I only deal 382 damage and the skeleton revives every time I kill it. With Sacred blade I dealt 985 damage (the additional 603 damage is about 7.5 times the 80 damage that the buff should give).
Compared to Sacred blade, these both deal less damage at 45 faith, but last significantly longer.
This actually drops from the Night Cavalry next to the Altus Highway Junction site of grace. It is also called "Shared Order" NOT "Sacred Order."

Is this not the same as Shared Order?
