How to get Endure

 

Elden Ring Endure Guide, Notes & Tips

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Endure.
  • FP Cost: 9 on use
  • This Skill is not Chargeable
  • This Skill cannot be Parried
  • Upon activation, the user assumes a stance with their armament (weapon), providing them with a brief buff.
    • The stance assumed depends of the weapon class used. This also means the activation and recovery times are different.
      • "Large" armaments (Great and Colossal tier, excepting great spears) need a longer recovery time before the user can perform another action.

  • Increases all absorptions by 45%, and provides increased poise against all attacks.
    • This buff lasts 3 seconds and remains the same among all armaments.
      • The absorption and increased poise buff start as soon as the user consumes FP, regardless of the animation.
    • Some minor attacks can bounce off the user upon hit, such as spear attacks used behind a shield.
    • The increased poise allows the user to become immune to stagger from most attacks
      • Attack that count as headshots or knockups can still stagger and interrupt the user.
  • If used without FP:
    • Absorption only increases by 10%
    • Poise obtained is decreased, allowing heavy attacks to stagger the user.
    • Buff only lasts 1 second
  • Note: This Skill was changed with Patch 1.07 as follows:
    • Effect duration has been extended but then Shortened again in Patch 1.07.1 as the adjustment had much more impact than expected.
    • An effect that prevents staggers caused by blood loss and frostbite status effects has been added.
    • Time between skill activation and being able to perform actions other than attacking has been reduced.

      Thanks to fromsoft turning elden ring into ds3 hyperarmor greatsword spamfest this ash has become the new meta. Don't fix what isn't broken.

        Are you a ds3 player upset that poise cast no longer exists? Think again!

        Slap this bad boy on preferrably a smaller one handed weapon, equip to your right hand with your casting item on left and boom! Just hit L2 followed by L1 and you now have poise cast. All those long winding aoe spells are actually usuable now. Not to mention youll never be interrupted charging a spell again

          Fastest way I killed Godfrey (gold shade) and least heals used: walk to his side, endure aow, charged R2, repeat. if got hit: walk to side, endure aow, heal. I'm not sure if I even rolled?

            Honestly this skill in it's current state just makes me sad. The patch that gave it a couple extra seconds of uptime made it amazing for an "I'm about to do something crazy" sort of attack, allowing lighter weapons like straight swords or daggers to actually close distance and chew up a chunk of an enemy's healthbar. As it is now, reshortened, it doesn't serve much purpose, since you'd have to pop it pretty close to the enemy and then immediately book it towards them. Even then, it still often runs out too soon and you get knocked out of your attack. Not to mention the incredibly slow animation on heavier weapons makes the effective duration of this skill about one second. It really needed that little bit of extra time to be good.

              If you are having difficulty landing a big AoW that lacks hyperarmor, or just takes way too long, use this on the smallest weapon and swap to your big AoW stick and press L2, togethaaa

                How much poise does it increase by in pvp? Will it make you poise through everything, like powerstanced greatswords?

                  Guy even though it duration got reverse, it's still a buff, you can't get stagger by blood loss and frostbite anymore, it's big.

                    Use this if you want to actually cast some of the cooler stuff in the game, pair it with some passive regen so you can heal chip damage too.

                    The only boss I wouldn't bother it on is with Mohg because he will kill you instantly if you stand still too long.

                      Something fun to do with this is to get Aspects of the Crucible: Tail, and then go to Gatefront and make the hornblower blow his horn to rally everyone to attack you, and then run into the thick of them and do Endure into Tail to blow them all away. Presumably also enables various other big slow spells that you might otherwise get hit out of.

                        This is a very strong ability right now. Using it essentially sets much of the game to easy mode. If you think it needed to stay buffed, then you aren't using it right.

                          This needs to be buffed for pvp now that the colosseums are out. At least give us 10 seconds. How the heck are those of us who don't use high poise or meta builds supposed to compete with ashes like Giant Hunt or Lion's Claw? Or all the annoying players who just run around spamming stagger pokes the whole match?

                            absolutely hate that this became meta but now laughing at the people crying about it being reversed to its original state. It was already useful before and still is, stop whining because you want to avoid all stagger at all times lol.

                              What's more broken than endure is the dual weapon power stance

                                What I don’t understand is why they don’t just separate the skill into two groups with two durations. That’s what they did in ds3 and they even do something similar with certain ashes of war. Weapons considered large could have the longer duration while small weapons could have the shorter duration. That prevents people from throwing it on a dagger or something to get the strong effect with low weight

                                  Patch notes for 1.07.1 say "shortened duration" without saying how much.
                                  For anyone digging for numbers, this just reverted the 5 second duration back to the old 3 seconds.

                                    Bruh this things buff is amazing. Great for anyone. 5 seconds of no diminishing value in resistance or poise and a lil better recovery time... Can fit on any build and works wonders giving you actual time to make a play or bolt

                                        I used this before patch 1.07 and wrecked with it. Now it lasts 66% longer and bleed/cold procs don’t even stagger you.
                                        Want an easy time in pve?

                                        Power stanced clean rot knight swords. Rotten sword insignia, Millicent’s prosthesis, spear talisman, and whatever else.

                                        I completely face tank bosses without rolling, prebuff golden vow and flames protection, physic, summon perfumer Tricia when entering boss room, get in bosses face, endure, L2 till dead. Reapply endure as needed.

                                        No health potions needed. No dodging needed. Straight easy mode. Tricia keeps you bubbled and the boss just dies so fast.

                                          In DS3 this was probably the strongest weapon art for PvP. How different it is in ER? I haven't tried it myself yet but I don't really see anyone using it

                                            Endure on a dagger when paired with a faith caster is so extremely busted in pvp, you can use it to secure casts of things like wog and unendurable frenzy for free, not to mention that you can backstab **** like the stormhawk axe thunderstorm and the ballsack hammer spinny. Very very underrated.

                                              With the right setup and weapon you can make this viable in pvp. Currently using on my blood infused urumi with no poise on my character so i can have fun with a light load setup while also baiting poise monsters into the WA. Bull goats lose their brain once they see you’re next to naked (no poise) and expect to win out on the trade and stagger, completely ignoring me charging my R2 directly in their face. It hits twice, fairly quickly, and most times bull goats STILL don’t learn and will roll around you to keep pressure while looking for an opening. So charging the recovery R2 after landing the initial charged R2 is also a good option. Sorry for long post, just couldn’t believe nobody has left 1 positive comment about this WA. It can be good and provides utility that no other WA can.

                                                I may be wrong but perseverance from DS3 can be used faster after hitstun then dodge roll. But this version can not. Every time i try cancel hit stun to L2 i get punished. That's disappointed.

                                                  So I pair this with mace for obvious reasons. Tanks roll in behind my spells to punish me but don’t expect to get yanked by an astrologer. Same for pve. Regen means damage doesn’t really matter if I’m not wreck less.

                                                    As of today, patch 1.04, endure works on a weapon that you don't meet the stat requirements for. You still get the damage negation and the poise.

                                                          This move is weirdly inconsistent. Sometimes it lets me poise through hits from a colossal weapon yet sometimes I'll still get staggered by a katana.

Damage absorption still there but you're still staggerable. Tested it out and no matter when you use it (i.e. right before an enemy hits), you cannot trade at all.

It is just about short enough to cast it, open up menu and see your deffensive stats lose their buff. If either of you can verify the values of poise it gives I would like to see it as for it has to be within the initial duration of casting, lingering deffensive stats buff does show up on menu, while poise bonus doesn't. is extremely cheap in means of FP cost. Overall, I see the point of this is if you have stamina to roll, maybe there is a way to boost it, but I fail to see how something as short would be useful over iframes from roling.
