should have been usable on twinblades imo
No longer applies buffs such as black flame blade after latest patch
Pretty good for NPC invaders, they'll dodge the swing and usually just let the ring hit them.
even after 1.07 patch
Sacred ring has around a half of travel distance of Miquella ring. And we still dont keep in mind the damage.
of course we can use it on PHY affinity and buff it with any grease or spell. but as AOW it so badly compare with his elder brother.
This seems generally worse than Sacred Blade. Tested with both a +25 Gargoyle's Greatsword and a +25 Clayman's Harpoon, Sacred Blade deals 1548 damage to the same enemy (Both get B scaling in faith with Sacred affinity). Whereas this has worse range and deals 1075 damage to the same enemy on a +25 Clayman's Harpoon. Basically, this should always deal about 2/3 of the damage. It also has basically the same range and the projectile comes out a lot slower on this, as well as not providing a buff. However, this can be chain-cast? I guess that's sort of relevant, but most enemies will be on top of you very quickly before that.
Apply poison armament to mainland pole arm, poison affinity to off hand cleanrot sword. Fire rings of light when people retreat from your rot paladin to cure status. Cleanrot fashion of course
flashy but useless, just like everything else
Behind the Commander's Boss Arena
The affinities are wrong. It is only possible to change to standard and holy.
I found this ash of war in liurnia of the lakes on a scarab near folly on the lake with one character. But can't spot it with a different character.
Maybe if you want the best version of this spell, just go straight for the Halo Scythe. If every AoW was the same as their fixed skill counterparts, people would enchant normal weapons with [X] AoW instead of those [X] weapons.
907 damage to my test dummy pumpkin head at Saintsbridge with +25 weapon, 99 faith, Golden Vow and Order's Blade casted on my weapon with a +10 Erdtree Seal... Lightning Bolt does 987 with absolutely no buffs. Hmmmmmm....
This thing is supposed to be Halo Scythe's abilities weaker form, I understand that. It doeals less damage, and that's cool and all. But holy hell this ability has no effective range at all. It's almost melee.
bloodflame blade on this could hypothetically be powerful
Hmmm it doesnt seem to be spawning for me, went to Youtube to double confirm the location and its not spawning
Very easy to obtain early game after the trap chest in dragon burnt ruins.
Something worth noting when comparing this to the halo scythe version is that this (along side all non-buffing ashes of war) will take on the effects of any buff applied to the weapon. To my knowledge, the only other projectile AoWs capable of this are Beast's Roar, Glintblade Phalanx and Flames of the Redmanes. Of these, Sacred Ring of Light is the only one that scales with faith, and there are a lot of weapon buffing incantations to choose from. Only have experience fighting against it rather than using it myself, but blood flame and black flame blade seem to combo really well with this.
Go back from Heart of Aeonia grace and you'll see it near some mosquitos on land (not swampy area). It will explode when attacked.
If your thinking you found the halo scythe's ash of war and can finally have that broken op krillan disc on a different weapon for once... Think again! Besides doing less damage and having worse tracking the real and most significant nerf this spell has over the halo scythe is it's effective range! The fact is you can run into a boss room and begin shotgunning halo scythe rings at a boss and kill like 90% of bosses long before they ever get to you! It's the only holy spell that even remotely has respectable range besides the one sniper madness spell. Well this ain't that spell buddy! This spell half like half that range and when you go to cast it you quickly realize why all that range was important because the first flick has an actually long wind up. Thus you realize this weapon art is in fact Garbo and so you slap on lighting slash and forever give up your dream of a long range faith user
Just a quick note - this is NOT the same Weapon art as on the Halo Scythe, which is called Miquella's Ring of Light. That one costs 11 FP and seems to do marginally more damage on a weapon around the same enhancement level, though the projectile's hitbox on this one is smaller and seems less likely to get caught on walls, the floor, and objects; but it also might miss a bit more. Neither tracks nearly as well as the Cleanrot Knights with the scythe when the projectile is actually out, but the initial swing will follow very well - just keep in mind that the animation for said swing is nearly 1.5 ~ 2 seconds, and can be punished easily by enemies and players alike. The ring is deceptive, as it changes speed during it's flight, and can catch players off guard depending on the distance they are when it's thrown out.
Both are excellent weapon arts, though, and perfect for a mix Faith build (though the scythe does somewhat favor Dex...)
Hey guys, I have a question: If I were to obtain the Black Whetstone Knife, and give the weapon I put this skill on the Occult Affinity instead of sacred, how would the damage scaling work? Is it just based off of weapon damage, or is it based on faith scaling?
for those who want to spam ring of light for better damage and longer range...just get Halo Scythe, this one has shorter range if put on any weapons
found near the heart of aeonia site of grace, dropped from a dungbeetle east of the cite in an area with giant dragonflies.
Proud to say that I'm the first to report this.
To get this, you need to kill a scarab that is on the east side of the Aeonia Swamp. Either head due east of the Aeonia Swamp Coast Site of Grace and listen for it, or travel south and east of the Inner Aeonia Site of Grace.
east of the Commander O'Neil site of grace. in between the dragonflies.
you know you're getting close when you get a heartattack because of the valkyries (which aren't valkyrie mommy in hindsight) that start flinging those rings at you.
