Elden Ring Cragblade Guide, Notes & Tips

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Cragblade.
  • FP Cost: 16 on use.
  • This Skill is not Chargeable
  • Upon activation, the user slams their armament (weapon) to the ground, then briefly uses gravity magic to encase the striking end of the armament in stone, before pulling it out from the ground.
    • This provides a temporary weapon buff.
    • The user is able to turn and "aim" when slamming the weapon to the ground, and when pulling it out. 
    • Both motions (Slam and Pull) deal damage if an enemy is close enough to the user.
      • They also consume stamina separately.
  • The buff increases physical attack power by 15%, Stance damage by 10%, and stamina damage against a blocking enemy by 50%
    • The Weapon Buff lasts for 60 seconds.
    • Buff is only applied to the weapon when pulling it out of the ground. If the user is interrupted before that, the FP will be consumed, but the buff will not be applied.
  • If used without FP:
    • The weapon buff is not applied.
    • Deals reduced damage.
    • Consumes 30% more stamina on use.

  • Effect duration has been extended from 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Physical Attack Power buff has been increased from 10% to 15%.
  • Stamina Attack Power against guarding enemies has been increased from 20% to 50%.

      YouTuber Chrightt confirmed the poise damage buff was reduced back to 10%. They apparently didn't like how cracked your stance breaking potential could get with weapons like great and colossal hammers.

        1.08 nerfed the stance damage buff. I wonder if they just reset it to the pre-1.07 amount, or if they settled on something in between?

          Wow this bad boy is the definitive ooga booga AoW buff for colossal weapons. 20% boost to physical and stance damage. Helped me beat a few Dragonbarrow bosses at low level. And even if I basically had 0 int, I slapped a Cold affinity to my Zwei+8 which procced surprisingly well enough. Godskin Apostle was always on his knees, getting riposted and frozen. Damage was no problem, but well those black flames were a whole different story

            Wish this thing increased Stance Damage by 50-100%, Not like it'll effect PVP. At least it makes the thing viable on smaller weapons to stance break enemies.

              Cragblade now is really, REALLY good. Throw this on an collosal and use barricade shield and go nuts with hyperarmor guardcounters

                Finally after patch, it definitely feels worth running. Braggarts roar is better, because of stamina and defense, but this one will definitely be more viable now. Unga bunga

                  If you like ashes that buff your weapon try this, my new favorite. Don't know how optimal it is, but the animation is very satisfying.

                    Puting this skill on anything with a quick double-hit in its moveset makes it much more effective. I love this thing or Rogier’s Rapier.

                      it does do extra guard damage. just a little bit, maybe around 1.25x. nothing compared to royal knights resolve, which was about 5x more stamina damage. what the hell.

                        Something of note, it would appear that you only get the buff if you pull the weapon out, but it takes your FP at the start of the attack

                          I know stance breaking is really good for pve, but does this have pvp benefits besides non split damage buff, more stam damage to blockers maybe? Hard to test

                          • With 80 strength, this buff takes a +25 Heavy Giant Crusher from 878 ar 1-handed / 947 2-handed to 966 ar 1h and 1042 2h.
                            Lightning Armament with 80str / 15 fth and +25 Clawmark Seal gets it to 962 ar 1h and 1031 2h, so it is slightly better but 1/3 the duration.
