Commander's Standard is a Halberd in Elden Ring. The Commander's Standard scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity, and is a good Weapon for those users with high-Strength builds. 

 

A beaten red battle standard is furled around this time-worn
halberd.

Even after his lord was fled, Commander O'Neil continued to
brandish this flag in the devastation of the rot-eaten field of battle,
the sole veteran who remembers this battle with pride.

      Pure speculation of course, but I think O'Neil was with Malenia's forces. First, his frostbite twin guards the passage to the Haligtree. Second, O'Neil's lord "was fled". The wording implies that "was fled" by someone, not "fled from battle" by himself, or at least that's how I understood it. Malenia technically did not fled by herself, but was fled, i.e. carried away, by Finlay.

        nice weapon for buffing....
        but why use it as buffer when you can use it as a poking stick... yes this thing was Long.... really long adn heavy...

        10/10 would poke Malenia again

        • Anonymous

          I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna use this thing as an actual weapon and not a really heavy power-buffing stick.

            Incredibly comfortable weapon. Sucks only against the biggest bosses and smallest mobs, which is when you whip out a sidearm or spirit ashes. It's comfy like a nice cup of hot chocolate after a long day. Literally just build to the min requirements, then dump everything into Vigor, and you too can play on "Games Journalist" difficulty.

              I second the notion of this being the best PvP halberd, it's the only one I have used since the early days of this games PvP. Yes the ash is basically useless in PvP, but the damage is only outclassed by the nightrider glaive on a strength build. But, this halberd has a better moveset for PvP when compared to nightrider, and it is the longest halberd in the game. Compared to banished knight, it does more damage (on a strength build), has the same moveset, and is noticeably longer. Plus let's be honest, for fashion this weapon is significantly more stylish than banished knight.

                best pvp halberd. hear me out, I cannot lose in duels with this thing. it has the good poke moveset and the longest range of all halberds, and even though its raw damage is lower than ones like nightrider and its aow is useless in pvp, the force and pressure you can put on your enemy makes its normal attack set strong enough alone. I love being the commander!

                • Given that malenia defeated godrick make him lick her boots and launch an invasion on radahn territory, with the fact that in game lot of godrick footsoldier and banish knight is seen hanging on redmane castle it seem like both commander was part of godrick army who serves under malenia. With their storm moveset it seem like they are indeed belong to stormveil castle.

                  So in conclusion they serves under malenia but previously serves under godrick. With one of them allies with cleanrot knight in cealid and the other guarding path to haligtree, While summon lot of exile and banish knight they are in fact godrick army who serves under malenia after godrick defeated.



                  Their attack have lot of wind involve and they jumping with wind seem like they belong to stormveil castle.

                    The buff is nice but I wish we got the scarlet rot/ frostbite tornado attack instead so this weapon had something going for it other than “cool poking stick”

                      I know its a nitpick, but its kinda lame they made the buff essentially just golden vow, instead of a stance ash of war where you could cast either a strong defensive or offensive buff

                      • Anonymous

                        The damage resist on this thing goes super hard (in PVE) (I mean it's 20% resist vs Golden Vow Spell's 10%) (but it's super nerfed in PVP obviously). I just beat Sewer Mohg and also Morgott, at level 81 and 83 IIRC, and wearing just the Cleanrot Knight set, Dragoncrest Shield Talisman +1, and this buff, my physical resists were 50.24% / 48.73% / 51.99 / 53.76%. Felt nuts how decently I could face tank Morgott's attacks as long as my buff was still active. Also as a side note, I checked the frame data and by far the soonest thing you can do after the buff is: dodge. The dodge window is the earliest window by far, so you should probably always dodge out of your buff to get moving as soon as possible.

                          Anyone got opinions on an armor set that matches this halberd extremely well? Looking closely at it, I'm struck by its bronzish coloring (but still with a silver blade) and also obviously the red and gold banner. I'm not sure if the insignia on the banner corresponds to anything/anyone else, but the color scheme and red make me wonder if it looks good with the Cleanrot Knight set (somewhat ironically given that you get this from someone who as far as I can tell fights against the Cleanrots). Might also look good with the Crucible Knight/Tree sets.

                            Also it looks super cool, I definitely prefer its slender proportions and pretty red-and-gold flag over the Golden Halberd's more extreme/cartoony proportions and monotone color palette. Previously I was underrating this weapon cuz I thought the damage didn't scale well unless you were super high level (compared to the Nightrider's Glaive in particular) but damn it the damage scales well enough and the extra range and weapon buff and visual design are all very cool.

                              I just tried this out for the first time after enjoying the normal Glaive a pretty large amount but wanting to find a similar weapon that did Standard instead of Slash damage. Fittingly, this Standard does Standard damage. Halberd Running R2 is one of my favorite moves in the game (such a big wide strong slash and you can do it from a sprint and unlike Colossals it's still a controlled enough motion that you're not just slamming your weapon into the ground) and this is the longest halberd in the game so it's got the craziest Halberd Running R2. It helps that its damage is also very high tier on a strength build before even using its buff, and the buff not only makes your damage nutty but also makes you more durable. Buff's definitely expensive for the duration but hey you don't have to invest in Faith at all to use it. Golden Halberd may or may not do more damage vs many targets (who aren't holy resistant anyway) but Commander's Standard is still the longest halberd in the game and has great damage numbers and a great big running R2 slash.

                              • Is it the strongest halberd in the game? No, though it honestly isn't that far off. It has very strong competition. Is the Ash of War the best? No, but it's definitely not useless. Does it look awesome unfurling the banner and screaming a buff upon your fellow Tarnished?


                                You bet your sweet cinnamon buns it does. Scream forth, tiny human, and then hope your opponent doesn't attack within five seconds or you're eatin' a metallic snack.

                                  At 80 strength the Nightrider Glaive has 777 AR. The Commander’s Standard passes this at 80/40 STR/DEX and the Nightrider Glaive can’t keep up by switching to Quality, so beyond 80/40 this is the superior damage halberd. Truly a Commander’s weapon.

                                  • I once fought Radahn while using this and the host and other furled finger seemed to know exactly how it worked, we went it and stayed fairly tight but kept loose in order to divide Radahn's attention but when the buff wore off we quickly regrouped to top it up. We finished him in just under 3 minutes including running up to him and his phase transition.

                                      Coolest looking Halberd

                                      Wish more of the Halberd took that simpler style

                                      The other are kind of overdesigned imo, like the Golden and Nightrider

                                      But sadly it's really not that good of a Halberd in comparison, the buff is cool but the movement and scaling makes it average at best

                                      Really piss me off because I love how it looks, with a cool shield it could be a God tier fashion statement

                                        The lord mentioned in the description is very likely the storm lord, given by how he uses wind abilities to fight you, and we know that the storm lord was fled.

                                          Me when using this in the Radahn boss fight: Hear me! Ye Tarnished, mighty warriors who have gathered here! Though we may be rivals...or from completely different eras, we must stand together now! My true name is Jeanne d'Arc! In the name of the Elden Lord...I shall become your shield!

                                          • My headcanon is that malenia and radahn battled each other while godrick was watching and grafting popcorn, but malenia did a little trolling and nuked caelid thus leaving godricks army turned to red acid

                                                Honestly this and the banished knight halberd have boring movesets. Like literally just all thrusting for light attacks and a spin for heavy. Although the roll/crouch attack is cool.

                                                    According to hitbox data, commander's standard here has the longest range of all halberds in the game. Plus it looks cool, has a good moveset, and does excellent damage on a strength build. Despite this, I almost never see it used in PvP. The only downside to this weapon is you can't customize its ash, but the one it comes with is simple but very useful.

The Haligtree and Leyndell sets match the color scheme, but the Raya Lucaria set has feather accents and is my favorite.

                                                          If you're looking for raw damage and you have the 12 faith to wield the Golden Halberd outdoes this despite the buff on this being stronger. at 50 str, +10 upgrade and min requirements for the other abilities, with buff on, Golden has 948 AR and this only does 799. Not to mention that Golden Vow lasts 45s while this buff lasts only 30s.

                                                            One of the best and most underrated weapons in PvP. I swapped out dual Guts Greatswords for this & Nightrider Glaive halberds.

                                                            I’m doing almost as much damage as the colossal swords thanks to the superior buff on this weapon (vs. Golden Vow), but with much faster swings and less stamina drain.

                                                            With Royal Knight’s Resolve on the Nightrider Glaive, fully buffed with Commander’s Standard ash & Flame, Grant Me Strength, Claw Talisman/Raptors Black Feathers, jump L1s hit for 3.2k @ 60 Str (2.3k w/o weapon/FGMS buffs).

Niall's really cool moveset when using his makes me wish the Standard got something similar somehow just because it's so cool.

                                                                  • Anonymous

There seems to be a glitch when using rallying standard then trying to use waterflow dance with hand of malenia. It’s doing almost no damage after using the buff! I can’t figure out why, the regular light/heavy attacks are doing more damage from buff, but the ash of war goes to almost no damage. Only weapon I’ve seen this do it to

The halbs with this kind of move tend to have slightly lower damage versus the 'chop' type halberds, but the Commander's Standard is probably the highest damage of the thrust halbs. While it doesn't keep up damage wise with Golden Halberd, the thrust moveset is easier to use, the hitbox is active for a bit longer, and it's very comfortable for roll-catching in PvP. I often have Commander's or Banished Knight mainhand, and then one of the higher damage halbs offhand.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Did a little bit of testing with this weapon and it seems the Jellyfish Shield buff and the Commander's Standard buff DO Stack. Non-upgraded with no buffs the AR was 205, with the Commander's buff it raised to 246, with the Commander's and Jellyfish Shield buff it raised to 295.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Cannot Stack with Golden Vow, as it will overwrite the prior buff.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          This weapon is clearly for high STR build at +10 STR is B while DEX stays at D.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Solid weapon for a strength build, really good range and decent attack speed. For someone like myself who mostly tries to use colossal weapons, this is an excellent strength alternative to that. This weapon really came through during the crucible knight duo where colossal weapons are pretty much off the table because they're too slow to use against them without being countered. Also has some utility in PVP, not flashy like other weapons due to it's AOW, but works well enough.
