      Wing of Astel’s Nebula is for sure better vs large and slow enemies. But this Nebula is much better against faster, humanoid enemies. Also this weapon has better Int scaling than WoA.

        So the imps in all sorts of catacombs, got no absorption to strike dmg and lesser to magic dmg amongs elemental dmgs

        Guess its very good having a cat toy if needing to repel little roc furries

            Sure Wing of Astel might be better in most cases, but on the other hand this looks like a big Cat Toy, imagine the embarrassment your enemies would feel getting beaten by an idiot who uses an oversized cat toy/baby rattle as a weapon.

              this flail is not worth to get IMO, both for pve and pvp. just go get its curved sword variant, the Wing Of Astel.
              the curved sword move sets is superior, and the skill, Nebula, somewhat can dealt more damage even on very large enemy like dragons. and its can be cast faster and recovers faster.
              i will glad if someone prove me wrong.

                I literally could not land a single hit on Crucible Knight duo with the L2 special, even if they were standing right in it. Think it might be bugged.

                • Anonymous

                  I just started using this in pvp and it works really well if you combine it with one of the phalanx spells. Ive been facing away from other players to avoid triggering the spell then I hit L2 and lock on to them. I can also follow up with Carian piercer or greatsword but no one has survive up to that point so far without running out of range.

                    Be aware: While wearing Deathbed Dress and using Bastar's Stars weapon RT attack with charching (flail spins few times) it causes very small aoe damage to atleast Torrent and summon ashes. I didn't test it with merchants after I accidentally hurt Torrent and mimic with that :( Patch 1.04.1

                      This thing's weapon art is a little busted in pvp due to it's range and attack frames making it very difficult to dodge. To be fair, most people don't see it coming to begin with since no one uses it, but this is definitely the go-to for anit-player situations (the wing version on the other hand works much better on mobs)

                        The WA on this is incredibly inconsistent and unimpressive. Astel's Wing has a way smaller area of effect but will hit enemies many more times than this. Even using this on a large enemy with multiple sections of its body within the hitbox of several explosions, they just sometimes do not seem to have active hitboxes and even though the animation will explode multiple times, a large enemy will get hit only once or twice. Once while farming the larger Envoys, I have had one of them walk through the explosion and take not even one hit from the explosion. I wish this weapon was more rewarding to use but its very short range on heavy and normal attacks with inconsistent WA make it feel not worthwhile.

                          It's a lot of fun and kind of funny to run an Int/Dex mage and powerstance this with a magic Nightrider Flail. Bonk smarter, not harder. ;)

                          But seriously, both scale pretty well with both stats, and since they do magic damage they benefit from magic buffs like the flask you're likely already using. Smash the heck out of stuff and nuke the rest with a glitter bomb.

                            I’m really lost af on how to use the nebula skill with this weapon. I can only do regular strikes with R1 and R2. What do I need to do to use the nebula skill?

                              Does anyone else have a problem where the flail does like 10 hp self damage when charging the heavy attack lmao I am not even kidding. It keeps breaking the ritual shield

                                At first I upgraded this weapon bc I thought it looked cool and mostly ignored the weapon skill bc it felt difficult to use. Now I have a build centered around the weapon skill bc it is SO FUN!! I recommend practicing on some ez low lv targets then once u feel confident, watch endgame mobs' hp melt away. The star explosion deals huge damage (as a mage with 99 int at least) it just takes maintaining the best distance to unleash the weapon skill. Its about 1 roll distance. The skill will cause u to do the animation with 0 fp without any stars so be careful to watch your fp bar otherwise u wind up being prone while doing the jump animation without the high damage star explosion.

                                  I really wanted to love this weapon, I'm happy with everything about it, except I can't get over the flail held R2 charge attack. Super slow (ik I can just release sooner but why not just jump R2 then?) and really short range without a decent step forward on the swing.

                                    I don't underestand how people can complain about this wepon's ash of war. It's slow but has really large range and deals much higher damage than the wing if both the wepon and the mist hit which requiers some skill I guess. Not to mention the fact that multiple explosions can hit one target which makes this wepon a true awatar and dragon killer. It's obviously good against groups of smaller enemies not just because of good damage and range but also stagger potential. It also costs almost no fp and goes thrue walls. The main downside it that it's mostly useless against faster bosses like malenia and morgott

                                      kill larger foes like nothing else. harder to use than astel but you just gotta know how to position yourself. astel is better if you just want to spam press buttons though.

                                        Practically worse than the Wing of Astel. the weapon art orbs have tiny explosion radius and will not hit unless each one is inside enemy hitboxes, so having a full circle compared to the wing's cone is very not worth the extra wind-up/down time, significantly lowering its boss dps, and sometimes leave you no safe window to use the weapon art while the wing can. People say that this works well on large enemies but they only have a few points connecting the ground, or are so large that you cannot be personally inside their hitboxes.

                                        However, everyone gotta have a strike weapon, and this is the int one.

                                        • This weapon isn't actually too bad, requires some skill to use but it's easy to learn, decent in PvP but Wing of Astel is still better, art is really good against large bosses and the initial jump can be pretty useful as well. Doesn't have a cool charged attack like Wing of Astel does though much to my disappointment

                                            This version of nebula is very slow and too spread. Wing of astel is 100 better than this garbage. I've tried both of them+9 against late-game enemies. There's no play.

                                              There is an initial "leaping" strike, followed by a series of explosions forming a semi-circle around the caster. Therefore, you have to have some skill to use this weapon. Without practice, the initial strike from the weapon art fails to connect on many occasions, but if you get the distance down, you shouldn't have a problem. This is THE striking option for Int users. The beefy AoE takes care of mobs and the striking damage takes care of the Crystal bosses and the like. Such a great weapon. I +10 immediately as a secondary to Moonveil.

                                                  This weapon is not very good but it looks cool. It's decent damage but the skill rarely works as intended as the delayed hitbox often whiffs. It's not trash but it's nothing special.

                                                    What I don't get is why it and other flails are dex weapons. I think swinging around spiked balls on a chain requires more strength than dexterity

                                                      Im so in love with this weapon. The weapon art is a thing of beauty and has a really good damage output coupled with decent range as well.

                                                        I love this flail so much but I have just one tiny gripe: just like Freide's Scythe in DS3 it has a high pitched tinkling sound when you move while it's equipped (the scythe is all times because of the frost.) I equip the silencing talisman or blacknife platebody just to run quietly while using it.

                                                          Weapon art on this thing slaps, amazing damage and CC vs enemy groups. I haven't tried it on a large boss to see if the explosions can multihit yet, if they can it might be insane as a dragonslaying weapon

                                                            For anyone out of the loop, it's pretty much required in the game to have a "Strike" weapon in your back pocket. This one is probably one of the best for Dexterity/Intellect builds due to the WA being very good on the type of targets you would use it for.
