      Since Law of Regression is so slow, and costs more FP than BoG, the best way for you to counter this as an INT build in PvP is to just not look like a mage. If you're dueling, or invading a gank/bonfire duelist just don't have any sorcery **** on. Put your staff away as you approach, make sure you're not wearing a wizard hat, and to complete the disguise you should have some kind of melee weapon out (this is a good thing to have anyways as a caster). No one will ever cast this spell on you, and they'll more than likely eat a crab instead lol

        i love the fact that you can buff enemies during invasions. i cast this on the crucible knight in leyndell and watch the puny mages run in terror

          i downgraded to magic fortification because I felt too bad outright deleting mages from the game. could probably deal with a slight drawback like how dragonbolt blessing makes you less resistant to lightning.

            If you wanna pull some trickery in duels, make yourself look like a mage (hold a staff, wear a robe) and then when barrier of gold fellers summon you, whip out your melee and obliterate them. Works better If you're a hybrid build

              magic spam mfs that only level int when I cast this spell (the game is unbalanced and totally not their builds)

                The palpable smell of fear on any 'Duelist' that specifically summons a Mage to fight then pre buffs with this is quite pungent. Bonus points for T-bagging if they win lol

                  I love when people use this spell in pvp against my hybrid just because they see me using a staff.
                  Only for me to swap to sacred seal and start whooping their ass with melee and incantations lol.

                      In pvp, this is a huge counter against int builds specifically.
                      Str and dex builds can deal a lot of different elemental damage, Faith has access to phisical, holy and flame, and Arcane can deal damage with status procs. But int can only really deal good damage in the form of magic damage, be it with magic or frost affinities.
                      However keep in mind that this can be nullified by law of regression, which most int builds DO have access to.

                        Mages have been getting absolutely insane damage lately. 60 vigor tree sentinel armor and nearly one shot by single stars of ruin then finished off with a carian slicer. How is that even possible? Send help.

                          This bs is getting a pvp nerf 100%. Literally game breaking in pvp to get a 60% resist buff for almost no stat investment.

                            A lot of mages now employ Law of Regression. Two options, land a free jump attack during their long recovery from their spell OR reapply your buff and then rush them to stop their second cast of Law of Regression. They are intelligence builds and it’s up to them to use their spell intelligently and not where you can hit them. Punish them harshly if they smugly cast regression in a very unintelligent position.

                              I use this on my anti-mage build along with Erdtree greatshield, and I only summon mage duelists in the Academy area. I can tell you, mages hate this spell more than anything.

                                For everyone complaining about this. Easy fix, don't run a pure caster build, use dual stat scaling and run a weapon buff build. You will hit like a truck while it wears off and if they recast you can barrage them with sorcery. Let's think a bit guys. If you want spells that can melt ppl in 1 or 2 hits expect others to counter it!

                                        It is also possible, albeit incredibly incredibly difficult, to get the large gargoyle near the west capital rampart sign of grace while using its sword, to do the overhead smash that makes a huge beam of light follow out of it, to kill the scarab and give you the incantation. The only reason i know this is possible is because i did it by accident.

                                          High damage spells balanced around high FP or slow recovery are the one that get the most punished from this. I would recommand using fast spell such as Carian Slicer or you could have the stats for a seal and cast Law of Regression to take out their barrier, it does not have any Faith requirement.

                                            Your directions on where to find it are incorrect. It's after the fight with Godfrey's golden shade NOT Godfrey first Elden lord.

                                                As a mage I think you guys are complaining too much. Its just because you guys use very inefficient fp-to-damage spells like stars of ruin and you guys all run Lusat's staff and the crystal helms. Carian slicer and piercer do a lot of damage and dont cost that much. Also the regal scepter has a good skill for a staff and doesn't eat fp like its nothing.

                                                  This spell immediately turns you into a sorcerer-slayer if you have a large weapon or great shield with decent magic damage blocking. Really good with a Magic Greatsword.

                                                    I use this in every single PVP encounter on my incant account. Do not feel bad about it. I had enough invasions of int grug spamming stars of ruin either as invader or as co op. Now I edgewalk them while my character swallows glintstones. The sorcerers will know fear. You will run out of FP before I run out of HP.

                                                      I play mage. Defeating an enemy with this buff in a 1v1 battle is almost impossible. You can defeat an enemy with a mage under this buff only if he is not experienced in pvp.

                                                        But if they are cheap enough to spam stars of ruin, swift shards or moonveil then they 100% deserve this.
