      Long Bleed Weapon (scythe prob best) with Frost. Spin at the feet of giant enemies. Instant win. Outside that? Almost anything is better.

        It is deceptively powerful for casters. If you're running a pure Carian Regal Scepter build, just cast, and when they come close, AoW them in the face. They will die.

        If you prefer the weapon variant, you can apply a buff to the wep first before spinning. It requires close range, but it does shred.

          Use this interchangeably with Ice Spear on the a Cold Twinned Knight Sword. Procs frostbite super quickly and does good damage. Would 100% recommend this for applying status on stunned enemies.

            The only niche use for this that i've heard of is using it in conjunction with Scholar's Armament, which applies its INT-based damage per hit. It can deal a decent punch, but takes some setup and is easily outclassed by the Slicer.

              There's a weird little glitch when you use this while crouching while moving. Crouch and start moving, then use Spinning Weapon without stopping. Once the attack is done, you'll be doing this weird walk where your legs are bent to crouch but you keep your upper body straight up

                Why is this literally the only Ash of war we can use on a staff? It's useless when we can just use a Carian piercer, or dodge. Much rather be able to Equip Bloodhound's Step

                  I don't know how to use this. Is it just not great to use early in the game with a +7 straightsword? It feels insanely weak, it doesn't have any poise in pve or pvp, and the status build up (using grease) is more likely to kill the target before the status is applied

                    Pretty underrated ash of war. If you put it into the right weapon, and use it at the right timing, this skill can melt boss's poise and hp effectively. Its only weakness is the attack range, as you have to be very close to the enemy every time you use it.

                      This ash of war on something long like a pike or a twinblade can destroy that multihit illusory wall in the volcano manor in one single use. You don't even need to meet the stat requirements for the weapon and that makes the weapon art not cost fp. Probably good for mass checking walls for the sturdy versions of illusory walls if there are more out there.

                        Does anyone know how this works with weapon buffs like electric armament? I assume each hit would apply the full damage of the buff, but I just wanted to be sure.

                          seriously underrated aow. put this on godskin peeler with cold infusion and watch it wreck everything. come out fast, recover fast, only downside is you gotta be in a melee range but you're meleeing anyway. sometimes simple is best.

                            I use this on a cold pike and it's quite effective in pve and pvp :)
                            Winged sword talisman is a good match.

                              Very good against mounted enemies. It’s hits both horse and rider, and stuns the horse for much of the duration.

                                cannot be used in off hand with a staff when main hand has no skill(golden order seal) kinda not fair but hope they can give the dual wielding mechanics a look over

                                  Ok after struggling with crystalians as a spellsword type build most of the game, just used this and it absolutely WRECKED the raya Lucaria cave twin crystalians. Broke poise in one use.

                                    Best use I have gotten from this is putting it on a heavy banished knight halberd, standing under a dragon's legs and shredding their underside. Should theoretically work on anything large enough to get underneath.

                                      I used it because on a scythe with bloodflame blade it looks like a light show, but I've caught people with it using swarm of flies as a stagger button, and it usually bleeds them twice, but not really consistent to pull off, for me at least. Also works well on big and slow enemies.

                                        Are "small swords" daggers and "medium swords" straight swords? If not I can't use it on greatswords like the claymore.

                                          What's the point of this?
                                          What does it actually do? It's no good as an attack becuase i t has no range and the start-up is too long. You'll get knocked out of it.
                                          Does it function as a shield? It doesn't seem to.

                                          At the moment i'm using this just to get Magic Scaling on one of my swords, but the actual weapon art seems completely useless.

                                            Description is wrong, its "polearms and twinblades, greatspears excepted" and most staves count as polearms for the purpose of spinning
