      Best Body Incantation.... Ever... You gain +35% Physical Defense for 91sec when equipped with Old Lords Talisman. ( With Erdtree Blessing HP regain you also gain the same amount being Bonus upto total 1404HP in 117sec , for 12HP per tick ). This means only and ONLY HP and FP Flasks are reduced... So any HP/FP regained from Talismans , Weapons , Arts etc. Are not effected ;) 10/10 Spell for me its a must specialy in NG+6 and MaxNG+.

        Does this reduce the healing from Lifesteal Fists, Blood Tax, and Taker’s Flame? Or Taker’s Cameo, and Rykard’s and Malenia’s Great Runes?

          Black Flame's Protection+Golden Vow+Opaline Hardtear+DragonCrest Greatshield Talismán+ Holy Ground= Ultimate Defense (69 Naked, 80 with Bullgoat set)
          Add some Regen and You got an Amazing build

            I've cleared the Haligtree area, I've defeated Malekith AND Gideo. I was not gifted this incant when speaking to Gideon not is it appearing in the Twin Husk inventory for purchase.

              Incredibly useful on high NG+5-7 cycles where late game bosses and enemies can easily one shot you (especially Godfrey, if he grabs you in his 2nd phase it's almost always a one-shot even at 99 vigor). Reduction in healing is meaningless if you're not alive to heal.

                Crazy strong resist, can go up to 70% mitigation with Golden Vow and Dragoncrest Shield. If you use this, you almost have to consider how much mitigation is too much, and think about pruning away other defenses that you don’t need anymore.

                  This + Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman help a lot against Malenia & Godfrey, especially if you happen to miss Rya/Blackguard questline for the boiled crabs.

                    dragoncrest greatshield talisman + this + decent heavy armor + 50 vigor = Facetank Malenia's waterfowls without breaking a sweat.

                      The Godslayer seal does NOT boost Blackflame's Protection. I just compared the numbers between Godslayer ,Gravelstone, and Clawmark Seals. They are exactly the same.

                      • This is a perfect buff incantation for duels, since most of the time neither you or your opponent will be healing, making the debuff effectively null.

                          It also doesn't stack with: Magic Fortification, Fire Fortification, Lightning Fortification, Divine Fortification, Lord's Divine Fortification, or Protection of the Erdtree.
                          The additional damage negation is nice, but keep in mind for tank builds that Blessing of the Erdtree is brought down from 12 HP/Second to 9 HP/Second from this spell.

                            In the past, i have used Iron Body pyromancy, Butcher's Cleaver, and every healing talisman to drain tank PvE and PvP.

                            Sad to see it nerfs healing in this game.

                              It DOES cut the healing from HP over time effects. That I tested, it cut Blessing of the Erdtree from 12 HP/tick to 9 HP/tick, and notably it cut the Blessed Dew Talisman from 2 HP/tick to just 1 HP/tick. Which means it's the expected 20% cut, but rounded up to the next whole point (it never varied, in case you were wondering if you'd get the accumulated remainders). I'd say that's a heavy-handed but fair way of balancing it. In summary, this spell is a great 15% net gain in survivability against physical attacks (35% negation - 20% all-healing penalty), but drops off quickly if you're also receiving lots of unmitigated elemental/effect damage.

                                you do not have to have the medallion, you can get this from him if you visit Miqulleas hagletree, which you can get to with a jump from the giant zone near a shack

                                  Confirmed this is in the same group as Vyke's Dragonbolt as well. You have to pick this, Flame Grant Me Strength, or Vyke's Dragonbolt.

                                  Interestingly, the weapon buff from Vyke's Dragonbolt remains when replacing its body buff with this. In case you wanted a red lightning weapon without the red body lightning. Though without the body buff, Vyke's Dragonbolt is directly inferior to Electrify Weapon.

                                    The miracle gives 35% physical negation to all physical types for 70 seconds, regardless of what seal you use to cast it. It doesn't seem to stack with any meat (so probably doesn't work with crabs/prawns...turtle necks seem to be the exception)

                                    The 35% it gives is stacks multiplicatively with your:
                                    1) armor
                                    2) talismans
                                    3) golden vow or commander's standard

                                    So if you are at 50% damage negation before applying the buff, the buff will give you 17.5% damage negation. If you're at zero damage negation, you'll get the whole 35%.

                                      For anyone wondering, after some testing the Godslayer Seal, unfortunately, does not buff any aspect of this incantation, not duration nor resistance. Only offensive incantations get enhanced by the seal it seems. The only way to buff its duration is through the Old Lords Talisman which brings it from 70 seconds to roughly 90 seconds.

                                          As of 03/15/2022, you receive the full benefit of this spell during PVP
                                          (as opposed to how gimped the Dragoncrest Geatshield Talisman's physical damage negation gets when in PVP)

                                          W/ no armor, physical damage WILL reduce by 30%
                                          (If you're wearing armor, of course damage negation is multiplicative so it won't add a flat 30% extra, but it will work as you expect in PVP as it does in PVE)

                                            Gideon has "about the secret medalion" option as soon as you get the first part, but by choosing this he just gives hints on what to do further, meanwhile he gives you this incantation after not only reaching the snow area after the lift, but also by traveling through sending gate locked behind barrier in that area town to a giant tree place.

                                              So, it obviously cuts healing down quite a bit, but how does it interact with heals over time like Bestial Vitality or that HP regen talisman since they're so low?

                                                This is bugged, it also reduces the amount you get from Flask of Wondrous Physick if you use the 50% healing tear.

                                                  This also does not stack with 'Protection of the Erdtree', probably because similarly 'Flame, Give Me Strength' does not stack with Protection of the Erdtree aswell.

                                                    Info is wrong or people are doing something wrong(?). When you get one of the medallions you get invaded by Ensha upon returning to Roundtable Hold and he mentions the medallion, to which you get the dialogue option "about the secret medallion". He did not give me the spell. Later, I returned with both medallions and it changed to "the secret medallions have been reunited" or something similar, and again - no incantation and the dialogue option disappeared.

                                                      Didn't get it after selecting the dialogue option, is it during the quest you get this spell or is the info just wrong?

                                                        you have to reach MIQUELLA'S HALLIGTREE first, then talk to Gideon Ofnir. if you don't reach there, cannot find "about the secret medalion" on dialogue option.

                                                          Are these numbers correct? I have 40 physical defense normally with Dragoncrest Greatshield talisman, and after using this one i have 60, not 54 as i would if it buffed defense by 35%.

                                                            Got to 65-68% negation with this one. Pretty useful I would say. Holds on for about 1-2minutes. Flask recovery is reduced but you also take less so I take it.
                                                            If you know an enemy only deals physical I would say this one makes it pretty much a cakewalk.
