      How my int/fth split build handles ganks in caves/corridors. Not much damage but it gets them off of me, is cheap, and can finish off the spam caster in the back of the gank who forgot to heal. It’s can be easily poised by heavy armor so don’t commit. I personally use prayerful strike to counter this spell and others like it in duels.

        Decent Spell , but not as crazy in terms of damage.... Regardless it is very good for Melee builds mostly. ( The increased charged duration can deliver more damage when hitting Large Bosses who dont flinch much ). While i know Communion Dragon Breaths are better , this however is pretty good if you wear atleast 2 or 3 Crucible Set pieces while having FGmS and Golden Vow.... And even regardless of the Crucible set , this is Handy in sticky and closed cave situations for how Mobile you are when casting it instead of Dragon Head Breaths.... For me its a decent 7/10 Spell both in terms of Fire Damage and Utility and Defense specialy in PvP encounters. ( Will appreciate this more if you run PvP mostly ).

          You can rotate decently fast and cast fire everywhere around you like an aoe. I don’t think the poise damage is very good so it’s not an anti-gank tool (plus it can be jumped over) but it’s probably good for pve.

            Let the DLC bring "Aspects of the Divine Crucible"... i want my wings... more holy damage and another awesome looking armor set! Wouldnt mind a better shield or some kind of crucible specific buff either!

              They should add an Aspects of the Crucible: Wings. Not as traversal, but would still be a cool incantation.

                Might be a bug but the first time playing the game I didn't know Tanith appears at Rykard's arena after you kill him so I went about the game and this incantation dropped from the first Crucible Knight you run into in Farum Azula. Might be the same thing as Nightrider glaive dropping from a troll for some reason in an early version of the game but it's still worth noting.

                  Who put down the "does very little damage"? It's dealing around 600 uncharged and 1500 charged to banished Knights in Farum Azula which is comparable to Flame fall upon them. Besides, this incantation does immense poise damage and can stunlock even bigger enemies into the entire cast.

                  • If you do have poise you can walk/jump into it and trade easily outdamaging but you'll need enough poise to tank through 2 procs unless well timed. It's a fun spell for casual pvp and at 80 faith it does do good damage 250+ per tick but the hits come fairly rapidly so it adds up fast. Once enemy poise is broken they have to get out of the flame or they get hit after every roll unless they timed it very well or... bloodhound step.

                      It's good if you use full crucible armor. Very good finisher in small places because you cannot really escape it if you were knocked down.

                        Doesn't do much damage, but it's a great finisher in duel when your opponent is very low and just rolls everything.

                          Found out despite not being completely able to be chain casted with Catch Flame or Bestial Sling, the damage that comes from the move still comes out when rolling->catch flame->dragonclaw, or double catch flame/bestial sling-> dragonclaw. The animation that comes out doesn’t do the move at all, yet if ur close enough to the enemy it will still hit them if ur arm touches them when swinging. May not be that at all practical but just a fun fact

                            Here the thing, now Tanith seems to have an unfinished quest because Patches gives you the " dancer's castanet " yet you need to give this item to Tanith.... and that's it. It's doing nothing at the moment (patch 1.04) maybe there will be some action with it in the future but .... It's very annoying though that you have to kill her for this spell...

                            • I wish it had more damage, but I say it does it's job pretty well in pvp/pve. It's a wide-coned flamethrower with decent range that can stunlock enemies aswell as players that dont roll correctly. It's really nice for free aiming, especially when dealing with players that like to roll around you. Highly suggested for use against Malenia as it stunlocks her for every breath tic. The incantation doesnt suck, it just requires a bit of thinking to use correctly.

                                I kinda wish it had more damage, but I say it does its job pretty well after some testing in pvp. It's a wide-coned flamethrower with decent range that can stun-lock players if they don't roll correctly. This is really good for free aiming too, especially if you're dealing with players that like to roll around you. Highly suggested for fighting Malenia as it stun locks her for every breath tic.

                                  Sucks that you got to kill a potentially important npc for a future questline just to get this guy to spawn.

                                    Considered both a "Breath" attack and a "Crucible Incantation", meaning it is buffed by the following:
                                    Any piece of armor from the Crucible set pieces. Roar/Breath talisman. Highlander Axe, stacks with two equipped. Fire damage enhancing effects, such as an enemy being doused in oil or "Fire Grant Me Strength" Incantation. Underwhelming attack, and honestly I understand why even the Crucible Knights themselves rarely use it.

                                      Like the other Crucible Knight incants, it's a lot better charged. Still wouldn't use it against anything besides mob enemies or particularly dumb NPC invaders, but it does a ton of poise damage and you can walk around and pivot while using it so there are some use cases.

                                        with a +8 erdtree incationthing and 40fth this does 330dmg to a stone imp.
                                        an r1 with a +8 crucial knight spear does 290...
                                        When you think about how long this spell takes... its horrible for pve, but a musthave for fashion souls or cosplay.

                                        but it sucks.. in pve, dont know about pvp.

                                          You don't have to finish the questline, as written here. Kill Rykard -> talk to Tanith -> go to boss room and kill Tanith.

                                              I'm holding out that in a future update that we can get the other two missing crucible aspects (claw and wings). Feels weird/ incomplete that we can get 3 outta the observable 5 aspects we see the knights use.

                                              Or maybe it's locked behind an incredibly hidden area of quest. Either way, fingers crossed and hoping.

                                                Can be found after killing Rykard, if you talk to the lady and exhaust all her options and then teleport back to the boss area she’ll be there consuming his corpse, if you hit her she’ll die and her knight will spawn, he drops it when killed

                                                  I need this like now tbh but have no idea where to even begin also does anyone know what other aspect one's are in the game cause I have the tail and horns I'm hoping for wings or a stomp or something and this breath sounds cool!!!

                                                    I got this after killing Tanith's Knight, To fight him kill Rykard > Talk to lady in the volcano manor, she will say she is leaving > Go to Rykard grace > Attack lady > Kill knight https://youtu.be/Wfg8FCkcqMk

                                                    • Anonymous

                                                      This is how you get it:
                                                      After you kill Rykard, Lord of Blasphmeny, you travel go to Volcano Manor, you speak to Tanith complete her dialogue, Once you complete her dialogue go back to where you killed Rykard, you will see her there talk to her again and complete her dialogue, and then you kill her. After you kill her, a crucible knight will invade you, kill him and you get aspect of the crucible breath.

                                                        after doing all of tanith's quests in volcano manor and after beating rykard, she will be eating his remains, kill her and a crucible knight will spawn, kill the crucible knight to get this.

                                                          Oh, the first it seems... So: Follow the Volcanic Manor quest line, kill Demi-God Rykard (the Blasphemous) then speak to Lady Tanith. Go back to the Bos arena, she will be devouering the corpse. Speak to her, slay her. You ghet invaded by her personal guard, the Tanith Knight. If you slay it, tada, you earned this spell (along a lot of other things along the way). Info taken from a youtube video.
