      A very reliable spell for both PVP and PVE, a little less damage than lightning spear, but more FP efficient and you can shenaniganize it to your liking.

      • Anonymous

        This spell has been a surprise hit on my Sword of Night and Flame hybrid caster build, the boomerang effect has proven to be very useful, infact during my first try at the Commander Nial fight on my most recent playthrough I had it hit one of the Banished Knights on the way out and hit the boss himself on the way back. I'm looking forward to the upgraded version, even if it won't be the most useful due to the fact that Holy damage is crap in the endgame.

          It’s actually very good, though niche, in pvp. For an actual fundamentalist just use triple rings but this single ring is good for faith builds who chose 13 int and very high fth like me. This can cause chaos in conjunction with elden stars or crucible spells. My favorite use is to cast this then cast barrier of gold/regen in the middle of a duel. Yes bestial sling is better but bestial sling is cheese. This is honest and allows some very interesting frame traps when it comes back. It’s also easy to free aim since people will just walk left to dodge instead of rolling and eat it.

          • Has unlimited range on return, and will still penetrate all enemies, but it still goes away on contact with terrain. Could be somewhat abusable, if there were any way to travel faster than it, which there isn't, as far as I'm aware.

              As of 1.04, the cast speed on this thing is still too slow to be useable. Also given its small shape compared to Triple rings, there's nothing about this spell that really shouts "yes, this has clear reasons to use over other spells."

              • Anonymous

                After the buff, this is now the most damage/fp efficient spell in the game on single targets. It's not that close, either, hitting between 150% to 200% as hard as other contenders like Slicer, Pebble, Sling and Catch Flame thanks to hitting twice per cast. It has longer range than all of them, too, and it's even better against crowds. The downside of this is that the cast time and dps are bad compared to the other workhorse spells, and by the time you can get this you should have more than enough flasks to stop caring about pure fp efficiency.

                  Yes, this is missable, but the triple rings of light look a lot better. Seems to be the same cast time and the triple rings cost 23 FP, whereas this costs 11. So it's less than 3x the cost for 3 rings and the triple rings are bigger, too. That spell is found in haligtree.

                    (PvP) Cast this a couple times then chain into triple-rings when the opponent tries to strafe, they have the same animation so you'll catch them off guard. Funny little trick although will probably only work once

                      MISSABLE!!! in my playthrough i found corhins bell bearing on the bridge where goldmask once stood. and now i cant buy the disk anymore!!

                        75 faith +10 golden order, Discus of light does around ~1600 damage if it hits twice to enemies without any crazy holy resistance. Great against slower enemies / bosses, especially for its FP cost.

                          Really good against flame tanks. You can just throw it at their front and the boomerang effect will hit the driver.

                          • Bored and was messing around with the erdtree GS, apparently you can parry your own discus of light once it returns back to you. Had 35 dex so I was able to cast 2 and parry each one. Works with carian retaliation as well.

                            :/

                              Still pretty much outclassed entirely by lightning spear in both PVP and PVE, and that's even if it hits twice, or once for that matter. In PVP it can't be used to combo with anything bc the combo breaks down the second the target decides to strafe. Triple Rings is much more useful for setting up roll catch combos.

                                As of 1.04 it does great damage, low FP cost, can be spammed, holy, and a low INT requirement you can meet with Marika's Soreseal. It only does like ~5% less damage than Radagon's Rings of Light which has less range and the 3 rings usually can't hit the same target at the same time.

                                  This spell can be missed unintentionally. Isn't sold with his ball bearing even if you progressed his quest beyond him meeting with goldmask at altus plateau. Didn't buy it at the time bc it was pre-1.04 and read it was not great, now went to purchase it with the ball bearing I got at the end of his quest and it isn't in there.

                                    This spell can be cast for free using ancestral horn talisman + primal glinstone talisman + sacrificial axe in off hand. The damage is respectable but since it hits twice it one shots a lot of enemies while exploring giving back all your fp.

                                      After the latest patch Im gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the best spell (both sorceries and incantations) in the game for general exploration. Here’s why I think that.
                                      1. It hits twice at good range effectively doubling its damage.
                                      2. It’s is boosted by golden order seal making it the go to incantation for any int/faith hybrids (which I am, also using prince of death staff)
                                      3. This is the real reason why it’s the best. It can be cast for free.
                                      That’s right. Free.
                                      Because it only costs 9fp, if you use the ancestral horn talisman + primal glintstone talisman + sacrificial axe you cast it for only 7fp and get all 7 back when you kill the enemy. Now normally a spell with such low fp cost couldn’t 1 shot most basic enemies, however because it uniquely hits twice it is capable of doing it consistently with that setup.
                                      Anyway, hope you all enjoy the int/faith hybrid best spell.

                                        Does not prevent Those Who Live In Death from reviving, despite being a Golden Order incantation that deals Holy damage.

                                          something people have not mentioned: pre 1.04 you cast speed with Discus of Light was fighter when you used the seal in your right hand or 2 handed it while in your left hand. the cast speed is now uniform.

                                          • Anonymous

                                            Not to overstate this but if you build for holy damage this is probably the best damage-to-FP ratio in the game. At a whopping 9 FP one disc is hitting for 1600+ on a single godrick soldier outside the gatehouse Grace (this is with +10 golden vow seal at +373 incant scaling, flock canvas talisman, and sacred scorpion charm)

                                            the 1.04 buff was insanely kind to this one. Faster cast speed, much more damage, lower FP cost. Folks, with the buffs to triple rings and radagon’s rings Fundamentalist builds might not just be viable, but be meta

                                              Holy cow the damage was increased by 41%. Triple version increased by 21% if only this buff came earlier in my int/faith playthrough.

                                                Sorry for the convoluted wording i just want to be as clear as possible and couldn't think of a similar wording without confusion:

                                                As of patch 1.04 damage is almost 30-40% more, i want to say 40 but i couldn't accuratly recall how much i was doing last night but it was in the 250-300 range and now its in the 400s.
                                                For cast buffs:
                                                the speed your ring goes out and you can act out of the ring is only a bit but very good how much?. (This is with radgon's icon and 14 dex so 44 cast dex) Last night i tried to use a ring of light on a heavy archer between shots. I used the incantation immediately after sidestepping an arrow, i was hit by the next arrow just before i could roll from endlag. Now i can safely avoid the next arrow after firing the ring.
                                                Without radagon icon (so only 14 cast dex) i can only barely dodge in time before getting hit by second arrow. If im able to dodge the next arrow without a 30 casting dex bonus then having it equipped ore patch and still getting hit means i have 10% less commitment, but the patch notes say there was reduced endlag so the cast time buff is probably not 10% since some of it is coming from endlag

                                                  There are a lot of cool potential holy damage incantations in the game and we're stuck with useless stuff like this.

                                                  I've noticed a few:
                                                  -Pillars of Light from big annoying flowers
                                                  -Holly shooting spheres from Erdtree Avatar
                                                  -Radagon's holly spells
                                                  -Some of Elden Beast's spells (I was really hoping we'd get a holly damage incantation from its remembrance)

                                                  I hope we can make use of Sacred Scorpion Talisman while buffing both weapon and useful incantations damage someday.

                                                    This could have been a great incantation but they just somehow made it terrible, like why do sorceries work so well and this is what holy gets? I love the idea of a faith/int build around this but its too underwhelming damage wise.

                                                      Beyond mediocre incantation, especially considering the array of other more useful options available to faith builds. The only redeeming thing about this incantation is that the cast animation is kind of goofy.

It’s slow, easy to dodge and weak as hell. Sorry faith users… this isn’t the spell you’re looking for.

If you're looking for a spammable spell honed bolt does its job much better as it has some basic stagger and cost about the same fp AND deals its damage straight up. I really like the spell, but gotta be honest it's just not great. But use it if you really want to.

                                                                            • Would be much better if this had tracking like almost every sorcery projectile spell.

                                                                                        This spell needs one of two things:

                                                                                        1. A damage increase

                                                                                        or

                                                                                        2. Much faster casting time

                                                                                        As it currently stands the damage is very meh and startup casting time is a bit too slow.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          One of the incantations of the Golden Order fundamentalists.

                                                                                          Produces a ring of light and fires it forwards. The ring of light returns to a position close to the caster before disappearing.
                                                                                          This incantation can be cast repeatedly.

                                                                                          A gift from the young Miquella to his father, Radagon

It is Holy Damage, has decent range, can hit twice and casts can be chained together. Just don't expect great damage. Definitely more of a spell to deal with flying enemies or poke something at midrange.
