    • So uhh, since this ash of war uses no stamina, in PvP you can put it on a greatshield and use it as you get low stamina from poking and blocking and you can completely avoid getting guard broken as long as you stack a lot of stamina regen. You can also reaction i-frame RKR jump attacks and roll afterwards and you will have close to 90 i-frames (60 FPS). You don't need to roll after using it either so it's not so predictable. Thankfully it has 2-3 frames at the start where there is no i-frames and you stand your ground so it's not as easy to use as BHS.

        this thing is basically your trump card against the opponent's trump card, and yes it works against grabs (you wont get grabbed). it will in fact cancel status effect buildup as well. so far the only move that didn't get stopped is mohg's nihil. anything that pisses you off or one shots you, like malenia's waterfowl, maliketh's golden blade attacks, godskin noble's roll, radagon's three big slams, elden beast's anything, just cast this up to three times and, with good timing, negate all those moves. it's not meant to be used for everything in place of the roll, it's for things that can't be consistently rolled. if you overuse it you will find yourself out of fp quick.

          This Ash of War is wonderful on a support build with the Carian Filigree Talisman and a high Mind Stat. My squishy healer can just stand and tank through boss attacks and sweeping dragon breath effortlessly. Throws invaders off as well when you just run up and let them hit you with their strongest 1-hit kill attack and just giggle when you walk through it unscathed. Great and fun Ash of War, though situational for sure.

            I think a lot of people are confused about the wording "invincible" on the page. It does not make you actually invincible, it gives the same kind of invincibility as rolling, and so can only dodge things a roll can dodge. Raptor of the Mists is closer to actual invincibility

              This desperately needs more i-frames simply due to not being able to move during and a lengthy time after casting it. Compared to BHS, which gives you virtually 80-90% invulnerability while moving faster than sprinting speed, this should provide more protection for the cost of movement.

                This does not show up in my inventory, but I have it and can attach it to a shield and use it. Very strange.

                  basically bloodhound quickstep without the movement. good for catching people off guard or for if you need to sit still instead of fly around

                    It's not even there anymore I've watched videos of people going to the exact place and it's not there for me. Maybe it disappeared because of progression or maybe they changed location in recent update?? if someone finds that it's a bug or patch pls give info

                          had a rickety shield with this aow on it in my second lefthand slot for melenias waterfowl dance, very helpful

                            Better alternative to blocking malenia's flurry of bullshit move cause with this she doesn't get healed from attacking you

                              Bloodhound Step does nearly the same, but requires a weapon instead of a shield, yet the FP cost is one quarter. This is a nice skill, but it should cost way less FP.

                                There are a couple good uses for this. Placidusax's dive bombs, Ancient Dragon sword swipes, the wide sweeping dragon breaths...you could probably even use it to dodge Godfrey's stomps if you're bad at timing your jumps/dodges. In the wake of Barricade Shield's tweak, this is a pretty good option for greatshields that might not have enough guard boost to stonewall everything.

                                  This badly needs to be an incantation as well. Not that it shouldn't be an AoW, but it'd be so nice to have a parry or no-skill shield and be able to cast a Divine Shield depending on the situation. Faith could use a reactive defensive like this.

                                    It seems this AoW was either nerfed or is not effective in Gelmir Hero's Grave. I've been using it to ignore the "Indiana Jones" traps, but the first chariot kills me despite being "invulnerable."

                                      i hate how some of these descriptions dont say what the items/abilities do. They just say what they are and that they do something but they dont say what that something is.

                                        If only there are some single shot huge damage attacks in the game. pop this in the right moment, comletely negates the single shot attack, then move on railing on the boss like playing ffxiv. The closest one is Malenia's Scarlet Aeonia but there are just too much residual dots after the blosom

                                          Spot on interactive map is a bit off. I found it closer to: -158.3, 59.9. ie a fair bit south. its on a small island in the middle of that pathway through the poison swamp channel

                                            Has a niche use for completely avoiding each of Malenia's flurry of attacks, since they go so fast that they all fit within the invulnerability window.

                                              It does NOT protect you from the chariots in the Gilmar Hero and Fringe Folk Hero Graves. I have tested it on both to be sure- save yourself the trouble

                                                This is SUPER useful on my sorcerer. There are attacks that are just too punishing to roll through, and I'm made of glass so can't really afford to take a hit. (For example: draconic tree sentinel's lightning strike)

                                                In this case, the shield and stats you have don't matter as much because you're invincible no matter what, so I went with a light fashionable one in my offhand for when it's needed.

                                                  The FP cost as of the current patch is 20 per use for anyone curious. A little expensive, but then again it does make you totally invulnerable for ~600ms or so.

                                                    It's niche, but I like using this on my great shield for when enemies decide to throw blue sparkly crap or start cosplaying Gwyn since I can't completely block none-physical. Makes up slightly for the fat roll if you're willing to give up using your weapon's AoW without two-handing. Wouldn't use on anything less than a great shield though since barricade is a thing.

                                                    • You can roll after casting it and you will extend the i-frames you get from the skill and combine it with the roll's. If you use the skill too late you may end up using mana, yet still getting hit however.

                                                      • It's niche, but it's basically a safer roll that can be used to iframe through very active attacks easily at the cost of a bit of FP. It's more reliable than rolling, and it keeps you in close range to dish out melee attacks due to your character standing in place.

                                                        I used it when fighting Radahn.

                                                            really niche use would be to i-frame exploding physick flask since you can't roll it. can't think of anything else
