      I wish this buff lasted as long as golden vow but didn't stack with golden vow. Less reapplying buffs, less buff-stacking, more enjoying the benefits of one good buff for a fight.

        Anyone else think it's weird that buffs have such short duration? Why not have buffs take a chunk away from your maximum hp/fp/stamina, one or a combination of them depending on the buff in question? Now there's a real cost to buff-stacking. Applying a buff or two for a boss fight would feel good because you know it will last for the whole fight. Buffs would be used by more players based on synergy and cost/benefit for their build, making their use a more deliberate build choice. All told, it would expand the use of the various buff spells beyond the typical nukes, glass cannons, and people watching Fextralife guides.

          Insanely good for obliterating any boss weak to fire. With this plus the flame physick buff you can destroy erdtree avatars in seconds by spamming catch flame, and it only gets stronger as you get the flock talismans and fire scorpion charm. Plus if you're a strength build you're already disposed to physical+fire, and the 15 fth requirement will also give you Flame Cleanse Me and a host of handy buffs along with the entire Beast incantation line.

            you know **** is about to go down when someone applies this. its the equivalent to taking your jacket off before a bar fight

              Is there any int or some other equivalent boost without faith investment? I'm trying hard to make a meta character but started as a Bandit.

              • I feel like this incantation alone makes so many above average setups and builds teeter over the edge closer to top tier. (PvE) Like there is nothing that can compete with giantsflame or agheel's flame spam at NG+ because you can buff fire damage more than any other element. On even higher NG+ levels, you can just use black flame incantations instead for the HP% damage...it boosts arcane weapons which are already very strong, it boosts blasphemous blade, yet another top tier PvE weapon. It boosts physical damage of gravity sorceries, it boosts the damage of pure dex and pure strength builds. It's just a bit silly how many high damage setups this thing enables across the board with only a 15 faith req. For example, scroll back up and look at how many Fextralife build videos are embed on this page. All of them are using it. It's so pve meta-defining.

                  I came here to ask if 'flame grant me strength' works with the frenzy incantations damge and if it stacks with the "Frenzy Seal" damage (PvE)

                  • Anonymous

                    A little bit disappointed that it seemingly cannot be used alongside any pure phyiscal damage nullifiers such as Black Flame's Protection, or even crab meat. Either one of those things will nullify the effect of Flame grant me strength, and vice-versa if you use them before casting Flame grant me strength.

                      quick question, when the description says it "enhances physical and fire affinity attack power" that does mean it boosts any melee attack with a sword, axe or whatever and bows, even if no fire grease has been put on the weapon and if no fire arrows are being shot from the bow, yes?

                        I don't do pvp so I'm only asking out of curiosity, does 'flame grant me strength' buff frenzy incantations? frenzy obviously has a fire component, you see this at caria manor when the finger creepers are hit with 'frenzied burst' or 'the flame of frenzy' incantations they flop about a bit, they sort of roll around as well, its the exact same effect that 'surge o flame' or 'flame sling' has on them. I'm killing the tree guardians at dragon barrow right now, I have faith boost, incantaion boost and fire scorpion talismans and the physik that boosts faith and fire attacks. I can kill all the tree guardians scattered about up the hill with one hit from frenzied burst before my physik runs out. But I've just been messing about with 'flame grant me strength' because I don't usually want it taking up a memory slot, my go-to buffs are always golden vow and dragonbolt blessing. I came here to ask if 'flame grant me strength' works with the frenzy incantations because I'm getting mixed results, on a single run up the hill I kill some enemies with one cast and some take two hits with a noticeable drop in damage on the first hit, some casts are hitting for over a thousand and others hitting for seven or eight hundred. I have no idea why this is happening and I'd appreciate it if someone who knows why this is happening would explain it to me.

                          As someone who uses blood flame blade a lot, I'd recommend just using physick buffs instead. flame shrouded tear + a knot tear provides pretty much the same benefit for a whopping three minutes instead of 30 seconds. This incantation is only really useful if you want to stack the two for pve.

                            Mainly pve player, im psyched for my flock canvas, blood exult, fire scorp, RoB, and this build. Oh and giants talis for the fire magic.
                            Pop this and pop physick with fire and hidden, throw down some bloodfire or corpse piler, and let the party....ehem, slaughter, begin.

                              This may be the most overrated spell in the game. 30 seconds is an incredibly short duration of time, especially when you see people start to stack buffs along with this. 20% damage buff to both physical and fire damage may sound nice, and dropping to a 15% may also sound okay in pvp, but the issue is that nobody has to fight you during those 30 seconds. Timing out buffs is lame, most people can agree with that, but the way this spell is, it makes it extremely easy to accidentally time people out since it has such a short duration. In DS1, Power Within lasted 100 seconds, taking 100% of your health over that time period. If you made use of Lingering Dragoncrest Ring, it lasted 150 seconds, while still taking 100% of your health over that period. That is a negative that is extremely easy to offset, while still gaining a huge benefit. For those who don't know, Power Within gave you a 40% damage buff. 40% to EVERYTHING you did. This spell only affects physical and fire, where in DS1 any build could use this and increase their damage by 40%, as pyromancies had no stats directly related to them. I would honestly be okay with the damage numbers staying at what they were right now if we had a duration of DS1's Power Within, even with the penalty attached. In my opinion, a buff needs to be at least 45 seconds for me to consider using it, or a weapon has a buff baked into its moveset. Alternatively, I believe that Fire's Deadly Sin could turn into a stand in for Power Within, as that spell is currently worthless unless you are using it for glitches (which is incredibly scummy).

                                If I see someone apply this buff... I’m confident I’ve already won. 30 seconds?! Lol get real, the math means this is only a good idea if you’ve got something extremely high damage coming. Meanwhile the average duelist who applies this will play passive that entire 30 seconds. Makes me wonder in advance if they even leveled vigor. I bet this would be really good with one eye shield or with actual pyros who can reapply safely throughout a fight.

                                  Wow this community really b*tches about everything don’t they. Exalted Flesh boost physical damage by 20% and isn’t reduced in PvP, has the same duration and it’s a consumable that doesn’t require stat investment that occupies the same body buff slot. Only reason you would run this over flesh is if you’re going for a faith fire damage build, you’re using RoB or Eleonora’s Poleblade and you already hit your dex/arc softcap, or you’re too lazy to farm items. The reason so many people run this on all of their builds is because they copied the latest *BrOkEn BuILd* clickbait video by people who also don’t know what they’re talking about and put this and golden vow on every build because they think think big AR = OP. To top it off, boiled crab or fireproof dried liver gives more negation than this does damage. Of all of the legitimately overpowered things in this game, people choose to complain about this.

                                    Should be nerfed for PvP or should have higher faith requirement. This incantation is run in basically every build other than mages. Defensive talismans such as the dragoncrest greatshield talisman increases physical damage absorption by 20% in PvE, and 5% in PvP, losing 75% of its efficiency in PvP, while this goes down from 20% to 15%, losing only 25% efficiency.

                                      This **** doesn't last long enough. They should either make flame strike last 30 seconds, or make this last at minimum 45

                                        I hope they add element increasing spells in the future. As it is now fire is the strongest element simply because of this spell.

                                              So, I don't know if this is correct, but I did some testing using the base damage; Golden Vow; Flame, Grant Me Strength; and both spells together. The few tests I did were with Magma Shot (just the base hit), Roiling Magma (both the direct hit and explosion versions), and Black Flame. I also used the Sword of Night and Flame R2. When comparing to base damage, you get the normal numbers you can just look up on the wiki for the two buffs individually. The multiplicative stack number I came up with on all of these when compared to base damage was roughly a 38% increase (again, comparing base to having both buffs simultaneously).

                                                  My comment got deleted somehow so i'll repost what i've discovered while using this incantation.

                                                  Whenever i used this, i had an additional buff icon besides the "Sword up" and the "Spell up" i also had a "Turtle meat up" the same kind of icon that you get whenever you're using turtle shield, turtle talisman or simply eat turtle recovery energy meat.

                                                  Not sure if it's a bug or just because it has the same icon doesn't mean it's the same effect, but i just wanted to share what i saw.

                                                    Something i discovered while just buffing around, whenever i used this, i had a turtle icon buff just like the one you get from using turtor shield or turtle talisman. I suppose not only it does increase dmg and fire affinity it also boost energy recovery speed?

                                                        It does stack with vyke's dragonbolt you have to do vyke first then flame.
                                                        I go from 518 to 630 to 734.

                                                        Bonus: it stops the red lighting but not on your weapon, once the flame are done only your weapon has an effect.

BUT, when i try it on a boss (Godfrey), Golden Vow seems to override FGMS (damage are exactly the same when i do GV only or both, and the order DOESN'T change anything). FGMS alone works normally.

If only Old Lord's increased it to 90 seconds but no, only 9 extra seconds. This isnt fun gameplay to have to reapply 6x+ in a boss fight and feels more like a 1 shot mechanic setup for over leveled characters.

                                                                            • Anonymous

When I use this Incantation and Golden Vow I receive a very significant damage boost to my Rotten Breath skill... I use this to farm the Mohgwyn albinauric area for runes. At 99 arcane, 60 faith, +10 dragon communion seal, along with blue dancer charm and ritual sword charm and no armor equipped, i get over 1200 damage per hit from rotten breath... not including any scarlet rot damage.

                                                                                To compensate with the short duration they could raise the casting speed? I'd rather it be spammable like Black Flame Blade with shorter duration then this. Like I want to use it in PvP, but the inevitable square-off stage would've burnt through 1/3 of the duration, and if you reapply it it just gives them an opening. Have to test if it synergizes with flame art.

                                                                                  After testing it with base faith to cast this incantation (15) and using a finger seal with no upgrades and then a +1 finger seal I can confirm that the sacred seal makes no difference when you're buffing. Good for builds going for low-investment but high damage buffs.

                                                                                      This allows you to gain the damage buff on your weapon and Flame, grant me strength without the drawbacks of Vyke's.
