Concealing Veil Effect in Elden Ring

Concealing Veil hides the wearer while crouching away from foes.

 Some info about Concealing Veil:

  • Distance to trigger invisibility: About 5 medium weight rolls.
  • Things that do break invisibility: removing the talisman (others seem to be fine, may depend on talisman), standing up, dropping from a platform/falling (causes you to stand up), any offensive action (such as shooting an arrow, spell, or weapon art), consuming an item, warping using a Phantom Bloody Finger.
  • Things that don't break invisibility: moving (while crouching), rolling, changing equipment (other than this talisman).
  • Re-applying invisibility in PvE: Once spotted, you must crouch again to trigger it.

      To those saying this doesn't work in PvE, go to Ordina wearing this and thank me after; or you can remove it, and get sniped from across the map.

        The black knife assassins have a waaaaaaay better version than this one.

        What you say? You use the black knife assassin armor? That doesn't work with this veil though! cause it has a buff that silence your movement , and there for cancels this veils effect out.

        You need to alter the armor, and remove that effect in order to play as an black knife assassin. However it doesn't have the silence now. :( how to fix that you may ask? Simple use an ash of war named assassin gambit. (Somthing black knife assassin don't use) to silence your movement "TEMPORARILY" for 30 seconds. But what about that talisman called "crubis veil?" Doesn't that fix the issue with the concealing veil? No that also has the same effect as the unalterd black knife assassin armor. And btw assassin gambit it also allowes in pvp to be temporary un-lockable, if combined with unseen form (that also grands 30 seconds of semi-invincibility)

        Meanwhile

        Lesser invisible Black knife assassins: (laughing at you for the amount of sh*t you had to peform, only to try and cosplay them temporary) you shouldn't try to imitate us, if you can only temporary become invisible like us brah. All we need to do is veil on, and we ladies are invisible forever! unless you have a torch with you that counters our effect. none of that bs, that is only temporary for you to use tarnished! ROFL

          This talisman does not work in PvE at all. Any improvements to stealth are just from crouch walking by default. To actually get the concealment buff to work, unseen form sorcery or assassin's gambit ash of war properly apply.

            I did some testing using the impassable bridge before redmane castle and the troll throwing giant pots in the center of Caelid. This talisman does not alter agro range of PvE enemies at all more than crouching by default does. If you want to do so, unseen form and assassins gambit apply the same buff but actually work with the addition of not having to crouch.

              FYI - the concealing veil does not work in pvp if you are also wearing a trick-mirror talisman. They will be able to see you. Trick mirrors also break the mimic veil, which you can clearly see on your own screen.

                I did assasin build and Tried using this. im using it correctly, but every invasion host just runs to me. They even see me from very far away. is this thing glitched?

                • Anonymous

                  Seems to still work while standing, enemies lose sight of me and give up when I get far enough away while standing with. Like I'm still within distance to where they would continue chasing me but they seems to lose sight. I think someone needs to look into this

                    idk if I'm just using this wrong, but it seems to do nothing.
                    from everything I've read, it seems like it works fine, and I'm using it fine.
                    it just does nothing. the veil status icon appears under health but no visual effect happens.

                      I love to use this for invasions and just follow the host and their crew. I don’t do anything and I like to think it gives them some kind of anxiety lol. I also leave little goodies to bait them into finding an item in the dungeon/area. But I honestly wished there was some visual effect on the character from the wearer’s end, like give it the unseen form visual for the wearer but still remain invisible to everyone else.

                        But what if you have a torch in your hand? is the light invisible or not considered to be a part of the torch? which would make sense, but imagine a shining dude to just glow into existence with duo torches. I would ruin my pants

                          This does have uses in PvE, I used this in Ordina and the archers were no longer sniping me from across the entire map.

                            Yep, yet another cancer PVP build. First we had the mooveil bros, then the ROB bros, then the bloodhound-stepping (ice skating) dual cross-nagitana bros, and now it’s the invisible gransax / jar cannon bros who run away and crouch if you look in their direction. Sigh.

                                IMO this is the most effective talisman for PVP, invasions specifically. With ER's system of invading only a host + cooperator, you have to deal with a lot more ganks than any other DS game. I've been using this talisman in every invasion, crouching as soon as I get into the host's world. I've also used this talisman to escape spell ganks. I'll never be getting into an invasion without having this talisman equipped.
                                Also, haven't tested it but I bet you could use this in conjuncation with the Darkness incantation to make for a stunning sneaky escape ;)

                                  Amazing in PvP. I've faked out so many host by using this, in combination with phantom bloody finger, you can confuse the host and any phantoms of where you are. Great tailsman if your going for a PvP assassin.

                                    Doesn't seem to be mentioned, but you can use light bows and regular bows and fire them while crouched without losing it me and a friend tested this

                                      It says "makes you invisible", what it MEANS is that I, think, it lowers aggro distance on enemies. Similar to hidden body, fog ring, etc. ANyway, if you don't think it's reliable you can get Assassin's Gambit for less effort and I can personally vouch for Assassin's Gambit's efficacy in PvE. Ordina, Liturgical Town pissing you off with all the snipers that use anti-material homing arrows? Try that.

                                        works wonders in PVP you can definitely get far closer to targets without them seeing you if you dont spawn in there face

                                          Tested on the llyndel knight outside artists shack. Used a convenient message to make sure I stayed in the same spot. Tried both day and night. He reacted to me at the same points whether I was crouching with the talisman on or without. As a side note, I also tested if he notices you faster if your crouching instead of standing, and crouching does nothing in terms of open concealment, so if you use crepus's vial there is no reason to ever crouch (unless there is a low obstacle in the way, maybe?).

                                            wtf this doesn't work, at all. Tried using it at Stormveil front gate and just got pounded by bolts, thought I was meant to be invisible?

                                              There appears to be some confusion still with this talisman. No, it's not particularly effective in PvE, but it DOES do something. Or, it did. Seems at some point an update broke it. An archer outside of Ordina spotted me from a significant distance with this on, it is definitely not currently functional. At least in PvE.

                                                Ok, so, unless I'm mistaken, this is actually very useful against casters who like to distance themselves to get casts off in pvp. If they try and get back and away to cast something like Stars of Ruin or Honed Bolt or a Dragon Breath, you can just crouch to get them to unlock from you by going invisible.

                                                        Works okay in pve. Using it to farm the Duelist set in Leyndell at a very low rune level. Only doing 400 damage per but you can easily alternate backstabs on the duelists and one will lose sight of you before you make it to the other one. If it looks like they're searching for you, they can't actually see you and are only looking at where they last saw you, you can easily circle around unnoticed and go in for your next stab.

                                                            The Concealing Veil WILL NOT conceal Ritual Sword Talisman auras, which likely means it also WILL NOT conceal Wondrous Flask of Physick.

                                                            • Can you stack this with crepus's vial or the black knife armour? Both make you silent which wouldn't do tons since you have to be crouching to use this talisman, but they would give you silent rolls, and feel a lot sneakier.

                                                                As far as I can tell this currently does not work for PvE. I've been testing it on imp statues. They notice me from the same distance while crouched regardless of if I'm wearing the talisman or not.

                                                                • Anonymous

Recently whenever I invade, hosts/phantoms acknowledge my existence even when i'm way more than 40 meters away from them, crouching, and without any aura effects active, as if I don't even have the talisman equipped. Is this something that anyone else has experienced? Not sure if it's a bug or intended balancing mechanic.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I can’t actually tell if it works or not or how well it works i feel like I’ve had much more success sneaking since using it but that’s just speculation on my part. Wasn’t expecting total invis while crouching- well actually yeah I kinda was at first that is what it says in the description- I think maybe it’s a decently shorter detection distance but only for some enemies?

Real good in PvE to make enemies de-aggro on you instantly when hiding. As an example, there was that giant that kept aggroing me and would not let go while fighting the Draconic Tree Sentinel. I squatted behind a rock by the cliff, he kept shooting, equipped the talisman, he turned around instantly and forgot about me. Tried in many other circumstances with annoying enemies just aggroing/following for the longest time, and it works really well. Pretty handy tbh.

                                                                                                                I use this pvp regularly and it works well for getting in the first hit with ranged magic or incantations. It does have a range so if pvp enemies get to close you will appear.

                                                                                                                Tips for use in pvp: keep a fair distance and approach from behind your target, most of the time thier camera cannot see you once you decide to attack.
                                                                                                                Watch for terrain as even a slight ledge or level ground impairment can make you stop crouching.
                                                                                                                If you spawn and are immediately spotted, try breaking light of sight before entering the stealth and immediately reposition.

                                                                                                                Additional: I'm unsure if the crouch sprint breaks the cover as I haven't fully tested it but I haven't had trouble with it so far. Also opponents with higher ground tend to spot you easier I find.

                                                                                                                This item pairs well with: the black knife armor set because enemies with good headphones on can still locate you by sound.

                                                                                                                Hope any of this helps - zally

                                                                                                                        Currently only works for up to a few feet of an enemy, not even sure if it's "working" or if its just normal sneak doing its job

                                                                                                                        • The invisibility in ER doesn't work like DS (which allows you to walk up to an enemy's face without getting noticed). It only conceals you up to maybe 10 character models distance and it's mostly for passing through areas heavily guarded by shooters.
