Flame of the Fell God is an Incantation in Elden Ring. Flame of the Fell God spell fires a ball of fire that explodes on contact leaving a patch of fire. Updated to Patch 1.07.

 

This legendary incantation is one of several that draws directly
from the power of the Fire Giants.

Releases a ball of raging fire said to be inhabited by a fell god. The
fireball floats toward enemies and explodes, setting the area
ablaze.

Arghanthy, the chief guardian of the Flame, had kept this incantation a well-kept secret until it was stolen by Adan. The fell god still lurks within the Fire Giants.

  • Fire Giant Incantation
  • Stamina Cost: 42
  • Deals fire damage
  • Can knock back enemies upon exploding, useful against bosses like Malenia.
  • High FP cost and only moderate damage make it not a spell to be thrown out casually. However, it can be a good setup tool when used skillfully
  • Note: Multiple buffs in Patch 1.07 - FP cost reduced from 42 to 34, stamina damage against guarding enemies is increased andthe damage detection time of residual flames was shortened.

      I wouldn't call this incantation a straight garbage but since its labelled as a legendary spell, it should be more useful. The only good feature this spell has is the knock back when it explodes. Either reduce the fp cost, movement speed or damage, otherwise i would not consider to equip this spell.

        they should increase its damage specifically versus players. if you somehow get hit by it you deserve to get oneshot

        • Anonymous

          it has a niche use in 3v3 free for all battles, just throwing it out into the chaos and seeing what happens.

          • Anonymous

            Pretty useful in that you can make it explode immediately by casting it into a wall, like the pillars in Caelid colosseum

            • I find it very useful for stealth kills in PvE. You can cast it and then immediately start casting another spell like Frenzied Burst to double tap them before they get a chance to react. It's great against tanky enemies you can sneak up on like Omens.

                can't even be used as a "get off me" spell because its super slow, has a very predictable explosion, and doesnt last long

                • Anonymous

                  Increase its lifetime and make it a tiny bit faster. That way it can actually be used as a fight starter/pressure tool.

                    This is true garbage. Even as a combo incant. Combo skills need a threat level. This can be outwalked. And it's not necessary a PvE... Fix faith legendaries

                      They can reduce the cost all they want, but as long as it lasts about as long as a wizard host during coop its gonna be crap.

                        Only good use I found for this spell is to cast it and flee in terror while fighting any erdtree avatar since the spell seems to work while you're facing the opposite direction from the target. Takes a nice chunk from its HP. Note: use Radagon's icon or you'll be swatted like a bug before you're done casting

                          Patch 1.07 stated that "charged spell damage has been increased" but the spell can't be charged so I'm very confused.

                          • It feels like this spell is more of a situational pressure tool than anything. Like you cast this, and then cast other spells to keep up the pressure. But I do agree, the spell as it stands isn't really that great. At the very least amp up the range of the explosion.

                            Conceptually, it does look cool summoning a floating sun to decimate your enemies

                            • Anonymous

                              I don't see this being talked about anywhere, but this spell detonates after colliding with enemies bodies or walls. It can detonate instantly on tighter walls/low ceiling places. Keep it for graves, caves or tighter spaces on legacy dungeons, and elden stars for open field (as the light flashes gets nullified when colliding with walls). But if you are not running a pure faith char, rot breath versatility might makes it a better option on pvp.

                                Okaaay....This spell isn’t that great. The giants seal boosts the damage, great. Said seal also boosts giants flame take thee! And flame fall upon them! Those two incantations are good. They also are charged spells, Godfrey Icon boosts those too. Flame fall upon them even got a buff in the recent patch. In other words, flame of the fell god, you’re not legendary

                                  Does this even compare to Giantsflame Take Thee in any way other than looks? I don't mean to **** on it, but it seems really sub-par for a legendary spell that requires pretty significant investment in Faith to even use.

                                    recommendations for re-balancing this spell, in order of priority
                                    1) Allow the aoe to damage multiple enemies
                                    2) increase the range
                                    3) increase damage
                                    4) lower FP cost

                                      To everyone complaining, this is a PvP incantation. Best paired with Elden stars and triple rings of light to overwhelm your opponent from a distance the same way mages use ancient death rancor, Rykard's rancor and stars of ruin. Less experienced players will try to dodge and eventually get hit by some of the many projectiles, more experienced players will close the distance at which point you switch to Radagons rings of light, Blackflame ritual or Wrath of gold, you can also respond with regular weapon attacks if you aren't a pure caster.

                                        Does extremely low damage for using 2 slots. Very disappointing to get the Faith stats to use it and then immediately go back to using other incantations because this one is so ineffective.

                                          I guess I need more incant scaling - because this does extremely little. Night Maiden's mist appears to be similar in end effect, but deals damage in the 1500 range, costs less to cast, and only takes one slot.
                                          Testing it on Albinaurics give very disappointing results.

                                            The only buff it needs is more range, as it’s damage it’s pretty decent, if they gave it that it would definitely live up to its legendary status and it’s two slot spell. As it is now, it sort of sucks

                                              I've been using this to take care of invisible scarabs since they die in one hit and the AOE pool is easy to set up. If this spell has any pve utility, this is a portion of it.

                                                The best buff they could do for this is: give it the same range as Frenzied Burst, it detonates waay too soon before hitting the enemy. maybe a combination of Duration and Range.

                                                  Cast this, Elden Stars, and Wave of Gold ash of war in quick succession. Laugh as your opponent dances and rolls frantically around the arena.

                                                    Best use for this spell is enemy AI that input reads. It only dodges on input, and it can’t detect the actual hitbox itself. For that reason it’s good against stuff like Malenia, Radagon, and so forth. I wish it’s damage was increased though so it does do the same/less than giantsflame take thee, a much more universally usable spell with more applications.

                                                      I love this spell, I don't care what others say. However, it doesn't really live up to its name as a legendary incantation.

                                                      • The flame itself also has a hitbox, I learned that the hard way when I lost 3/4th of my health with 60 Vigor trying to jump attack someone casting it.

                                                          1. Cast it safely out of melee range
                                                          2. Get in their face to keep them distracted, particularly with a shield
                                                          3. It explodes, staggering tf out of them
                                                          4. Go ham on them with your melee weapon.

                                                            I accidentally brought this to Godfrey's fight instead of Giantsflame take thee, that was a big mistake. Not only is it slower than molasses, it does less single target damage than giantsflame. Its AoE isn't that big anyway, so what pack are you gonna blow up with it?

                                                              of course she heals after that and im dying, but still a good spell

                                                                This spell can hit enemies hiding behind covers and corners, both above and below you. Just cast it and watch it slowly go up to them, then hit through whatever cover they're behind. At high faith it tends to instakill them too.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Knocks a lot of enemies down and does pretty good damage against mobs, but still terrible in PvP. Its way too easy to avoid and doesn't last very long. The opponent can see you cast this and just run a couple feet away, putting themselves in a position where the spell will automatically detonate before it can hit them.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

This thing is basically a reverse Forbidden Sun; instead of fast tracking with a generous explosion, its supposed to be this pressuring tool that can lead to big openings or damage. Problem is; it doesn't last long enough to reach most of its targets, doesn't track well enough to deal with nimble targets, is easily avoided in PvP (even post nerfed flies still beat it as a pressuring incantation), and worst of all: it takes 2 slots to even use it. It's going to need some speed and tracking buffs before it can compete with any of the other fire incantations; and even on the 2-slot fire spells/incantations, you should just use Giantsflame; Take Thee or Rykard's Rancor.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

You also need to be able to have two of these fireballs in play at any one time without your second cast automatically dispelling your first cast. Yeah, so basically give us the Fire Giant boss version of this spell please FromSoft.

                                                                                          I use this with Elden Stars and Pest Treads and the flame buff spell, if something lands it will make good damage
                                                                                          The oponent has to look for 2 slow moving spells and yourself

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              I like the idea of this spell and love it's visuals but gods does it need a buff.

                                                                                                People here are highly underrating it.
                                                                                                If you use a shield, you cast it - then go stand next to the enemy while it explodes, then they often stagger by the field of effect - and you can do whatever else you want to combo.

                                                                                                  The one execption is a short window where you knock down knights and the recast is just fast enough to knock them back down.

                                                                                                    • The range is too short, the cast time is too long, the projectile is too slow, it takes 2 slots, costs too much and you can't even chain cast them because the first one disappears when you cast the second. Easily a contender for the most useless spell in the game.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                          I disagree about this spell being 'useless' for pvp. While it's definitely not *great*, I think people massively undervalue spells like this which can be utilized as a 'smokescreen' for other spells. In this case, it offers area denial. If you start a fight with this spell, you can follow it up with a variety of other spells, even some that are quite difficult to cast usually, like Burn, O Flame!

                                                                                                          In the above case, the opponent isn't just going to ignore FotFG. When the ball is activated, it basically turns into a 'stay away from this area' for a good 15s. If they stay in to start with, they'll get blasted by the explosion -- and then for a while afterwards the ground is covered in stagger-inducing fire. Assuming you follow it up with another spell like Burn, O Flame!, you pressure an approaching opponent to either back off or get staggered into a fire pillar -- that combo alone is enough to kill a lot of people.

                                                                                                          Tl;dr, use it as a precursor to other spells. Having one of these fireballs in the air means that your opponent has to split their attention to make sure they don't get hit by it, and even after it explodes it gives you some area denial since most people aren't willing to take the chip damage.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

Honestly surprising they let this into the game in the current, useless state of it, let alone be a legendary incantation. The lack of balancing/testing is honestly astonishing.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

The casting time is atrocious, the faith requirement ridiculous, the damage lame, and projectile speed and distance pathetic, and the AOE nonexistent... The only thing legendary about this incantation is how utterly disappointing it is. Even worse than Surge, O Flame! From Soft really needs to rework most of the fire spells in this game, because only a handful are actually worth a damn.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

The entire giants flame lineup of spells is actually garbage. Slow cast, very little range, not high enough damage to compensate. Even regular flame and black flame have more useful spells which cost way less FP. These spells need a buff ASAP.

Knocks enemies down upon explosion and lays a pool of fire that seemingly has a lot of hit stun, but it takes awhile to activate, awhile to detonate and worst off the pool of fire doesn't do enough damage for me. I was wanting something similar to Chaos Fire Orb from DS3

Combined with Giantsflame and my Mimic also using the same spells and I can consistently clear her first phase easily. Her second phase on the other hand...
