Elden Ring Carian Retaliation Guide, Notes & Tips

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Carian Retaliation.
  • FP Cost: 8
    • Only costs FP when successfully parrying a spell (not a physical attack).
  • Carian Retaliation has 4 start-up frames and 6 parry frames at 30 FPS. Double the values for data at 60 FPS.
  • Creates a blue field in front of your shield. If a magical projectile enters this field, it's absorbed and converted into a glintblade arch above your head. Parrying a regular attack costs no FP, while parrying a magical projectile costs 8 FP.
  • Works on your own projectiles as well, such as the ones from Glintstone Scrap or Wraith-Calling Bell.
  • The glintblades' damage is affected by the affinity and upgrade level of the shield.
  • See Parrying for detailed information on the mechanic and a comparison of different parry skills.

      I have been on the recieving end of this invading. I am not complaining, use whatever you want since I am invading you. Not supposed to be fair anyway. But then I am also gonna use it to Parry spell spam and kill the summons. I can't deal with spell spam so this is my go to glitch or not. I will never self proc.

          Is it fair play if I pull this out against gankers and parry their spell instead of bugging it out with mine?

          • Anonymous

            I found a Bug with Carian Retaliation. If you are under the effect of Rallying Standard from Commander's Standard's weapon art. Carian Retaliation will deal no damage. I don't really know how to report bug but if anyone interested enough can you guys report it?

              absurdly broken, at 70 int with a +20 magic carian knight shield, i could easily chunk malenia for whole quarters of her health in ng off of a self-proc

                "In the western part of Liurnia is the Temple Quarter Grace Site. Directly to the northwest of it is a small island surrounded by flying beetles upon which is a beetle that drops this particular Ash of War. One can get to this location with little to no fighting of enemies, particularly if they skip past Stormveil Castle."

                No, it just dropped a somber smithing stone.

                      Fun fact : this scales off your shield damage. On a shield with good scaling for your class, this can literally one shot any other player. Stupid broken for PvP idk why I don't see anyone use it

                        Is there any reason to use a regular parry over this once you get it? Other than the slightly annoying particle and sound effects, anyway.
