      With proper timing, this can sometimes confuse the chariots into not following you. Cast when in a bottom niche and chariot is at the top. Drop down and run away, chariot should stay on upper track.

        How to make this spell not complete trash:

        1) Increase its duration to 60-80 seconds

        2) Reduce the FP cost down to 10

        3) Give it 11% critical damage bonus (Effectively 10% more damage when doing crits)

        4) Make it so that Backstabs are silent while this is active (So you can sneak around and stab someone without alerting all enemies withing 14 miles... So you can sneak around and stab someone else too... Which is one of the problems with stealth in this game, you only get to sneak up on 1 guy and then his 200 buddies come charging at you)

          I don't really get why this incantation even exist, at least with its actual stats
          don't get me wrong, the effect in itself are definitively useful, at least for the stealth part (check discussion about assassin's approach and/or soft cotton to see how the "reduce fall damage" part is generally useless)

          why i think this incantation is useless is because of its costs versus what it "should" give in return : the effects are roughly the same as if you used soft cotton and equal or less duration

          If we compared their costs/requirement : we can get the recipe for soft cotton quite easily and without the need to fight anything, just travelling, then it require "rowa fruit" and "smoldering butterfly" two of the most easiest/common material you could get in the world, so by no means it is difficult to craft dozens of those

          let's now see what require "assassin's approach" : either chosing confessor as starting class or 3 stone sword key in total to get the prayer book, then require one memory slot and 15FP to cast (one urgent heal cost 16 FP and also one memory slot, so you're basically sacrificing one self heal for the effect of a common item)

          either fromsoft should reduce its FP cost/upgrade its duration or give this incantations other effect (like long distant invisibility or bonus for the next backstab) because as it is now, its just too costly when you have much cheaper options/alternatives and also available earlier (when going anything else than confessor)

            I rarely need this. Crouching works fine. And when crouching doesn't work, this incantation doesn't work either. Example: the room with a page and two perfumers in early Leyndell. I was trying to find a way to take out the group one by one with poison. Or backstab. But they are hyper-alert, and even if you approach one from the back, they will aggro. This incantation doesn't make any difference. Or maybe the 15 seconds wore off? Barely enough time to get into the room and in position. Worthless.

              It also works when you cast it on Torrent, making him completely silent, and with unseen form also cast on torrent you are invisible and silent.

                Everyone saying that this is a pointless incantation because they can just crouch walk don't realize how much more stealth options being able to not only jump but sprint jump in complete silence opens up.

                  damage nerfed and fp cost increased 12 > 15 with the shadow nerfs of 1.03 patch

                  why from. why. this is literally worse than soft cotton. why.

                    This is really bad. All it does is remove the need to crouch so you can sneak faster, but it only lasts 15 seconds.
                    The fall damage reduction only reduces the damage you can take from falling; it doesn’t allow you to survive further falls. And the window between no damage and instant death is incredibly narrow anyway.
                    There’s a talisman which outright removes fall damage at all times, and even that isn’t useful.
                    This should have a much longer duration, at least.

                        Actually useless since many enemies are scripted to notice and attack you once you get within a certain radius, regardless if they’ve seen or heard you.

                          The only place I’ve been able to find this spell useful is at the divine tower of caelid to get to the bottom. Other then that, it hasn’t really done me any good, and I’ve been running it up to Altus.

                            Duration is around 15 seconds, so if you want to use it regularly consider taking the talisman that gives FP on critical strikes.

                                You can cast this while on your horse to greatly reduce fall damage of the horse itself. Can get you in some... interesting places.

                                  I'm so happy to see this spell finally be useful. Even though it's still a bit gimmicky, it's so much fun to sprint around enemy camps and backstab everything
