      regarding strength scaling

      Using uchigatana with a str/dex build-> if I am leveling up dex, will flame of redmane's still increase because the uchi scales w/dex? or will it only increase w/str?

      • Was quite effective against flying enemies before 1.08, now I would say don't bother unless you can one-shot. It doesn't poise break so it doesn't knock them down. Usually one is all you can get out before bird talons are within kissing distance

          Reduced? Poise damage has been eliminated. Looking for another suggestion for light weight poise damage skill. Spectral Lance?

              Another thing lobotomized because Miyazaki doesn't like seeing people easily beat his games, so rather than give it a slight nerf, he flat out kills it. RIP to Flame of redmanes, the ds3 sunslight swagsword knows your pain.

                I'm on my first playthrough and chose to play Katana and Misericorde. Suddenly I can't stagger and crit bosses anymore. That sucks.

                    I feel like they should have nerfed it only to 25 Stance damage. With the Stonebarb Cracked Tear the Stance damage would be 32.5 (can someone confirm if the tear affects FOTR).

                    Most bosses have around 80-120 Stance health, so with 25 stance damage FOTR could have poise broke most bosses with 5 uses without tear tear, 4 uses with the tear.

                    I get that 40 Stance damage might have seem a bit high for an ash of war that could come out really quickly, but 10 Stance damage, it's just too low man.

                      Flame of the Redmanes' poise damage was nerfed way too hard. It should have just been lowered to 30, not lowered BY 30. Please From Software, give Flame of the Redmanes 20 stagger points back.

                        Did they really have to nerf it that hard? I'd get if they halved of from 40 to 20 poise damage but to 10? Way to nerf it into the ground, not that they needed to nerf it in the first place. Couldn't they have just nerfed its effectiveness in PvP and not ruin it in the PvE?

                          Malenia was first try with this AoW in my first playthrough. They nerfed it, but I still first try Malenia on my NG+ with Lion's Claw + Ultra Big Hammer. So everything is gucci my friends.

                            So, how is this for damage on a proper strength build?

                            I like the animation and theme, but always ended up avoiding it due to how funky all that posture breaking was

                              People complaining this was overpowered clearly forgot how busted doing 20k damage with Night and Flame was. Fun detected: fun removed.

                                I will admit that this was way too strong, but the nerf might have gone too far.

                                Going from 40 to 10 stance damage will quadruple the hits to stagger, meaning this is likely inferior to Flaming Strike from a damage perspective. It will barely stagger anymore, so most of its damage will come from the WA itself, which Flaming Strike does better via buffing.

                                For those looking for alternatives to this for a stagger build, the Glintblade Phalanx AoW still does 40 stagger damage, if slower and less spammable, and Square Off deals 40 stagger on its Heavy input. There are still options, just not as simple as rushing Caelid for the AoW.

                                    (note: this NEVER scales with faith, only strength).
                                    This ash of war is OP for critical hit builds. It has the highest stance damage per second of any ability. Not only is it fast, it's cheap. At only 14 FP, it's the only FP-costing move that costs less to stance break most enemies than you get from critting with the assassin's cerulean dagger talisman (restores 15 per damagign part of crit animation, so you can do it indefinitely. Everything else costs >15. Glintblade phalanx is 18 (combos well with this tho). Everything else is way slower and more costly.

                                    Its a shame, because this overshadows a lot of potential crit builds with little effort. Stone of gurranq, aspect of the crucible: tail, heavy finisher, and trolls roar are decent alternatives if you don't want to use this meta junk or spam jumping heavies, but it won't be a very clean build.

                                      Does the poise damage scale with weapon upgrade? I used this now on Istvan (a humanoid NPC) with a +0 caestus, I hit him four times in quick succession and no stagger.

                                        Definitely needs a nerf for PvE. unlike other overtuned strats like comet azur/ metorite of astel + infinite fp (which can only be done once before resting) or lion's claw/ giant hunt on gugs or other colossals (which require a dedicated strength build), or bleed builds (also requiring a dedicated build), this thing is universally useful, can be applied to any build, can inflict bloodloss via bloodflame blade, and combined with misrecorde, makes it so that you basically don't even have to engage with any of the core mechanics of the game (i-frame dodges, positioning, guard counters, etc.), since you can just stun lock bosses to death.

                                        Increase the damage scaling with the weapon's AR (25% or so), make the stagger damage be like half or a fourth of what it is currently. It retains use as a decent stagger and crowd control option for mobs on builds that aren't speced into the spell caster stats, or don't use heavy weapons, and gives them elemental damage in addition.

                                        The stance damage on this doesn't make any sense, a small cloud of flame shouldn't be doing more stance damage than artorias-flipping with a hunk of steel the size of a bike.

                                          Hoo boy is this thing massively overtuned. Breaks Elden Beast's poise in four hits, and less against most other bosses in the game. Allows for 3-5 ripostes you would never have gotten otherwise. On top of that, it does decent straight up damage, comes out fast and costs little FP. There are basically no drawbacks to this.

                                            This is ass in PVP, which is the only place nerfs should be put in place. Taking away people's ability to smash bosses with intended game mechanics is petty.

                                                "It seems to scale only with the weapon AR."

                                                I dont think so: for me it seems to scale with the strength scaling of the weapon, at least strongly modified by it, because (60 str / 60 fth build) I got more dmg out of it with a heavy affinity, than with a flame affinity. Tried several weapons.

                                                    I killed the omen king first try with a miséricorde +14 and this ash of war, use margit shackle, then 2 woosh woosh, critical hit, 2 woosh woosh, critical hit, drink when you need, I just got damaged when he phased transition, otherwise yes I didn't see much of the moveset. So op. It would be nice to have something in between having a sh*t weapon that tickle bosses (at level 1) and this lol. When it's your first rl1 you might want to try several weapons but the most important bell bearings are AFTER this boss....

                                                            Even if they resist the fire damage you deal with this, if they are a staggerable enemy, it will still break their stance. Tried it on Man serpents that are immune to fire damage and it still broke their stance.

                                                              Just so you know, Square Off's heavy version also deals 40 stance damage. What makes this skill infinitely better in my opinion is its range and spammability. A banished knight in Stormveil will be stance broken in two hits from this or square off, but you'll have such an easier time with two of these than two square offs.

                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                This is the most powerful weapon skill in the game in my opinion, and even as a sorcerer I find many enemies, and even many bosses, easiest to fight using this skill instead of sorcery.

                                                                But anyway, for those wondering how strength affects it, I did some testing with two characters that both have a +16 misericorde. With a strength of 12, the skill typically did 505 damage. With a strength of 53, it typically did 650 damage. So while strength increases damage a bit, you do NOT need high strength to utilize this ability even if you just want it for AoE fire damage. Also strength had no apparent effect on poise damage, which of course is the raison d'etre of this skill.

                                                                • Anonymous

Additionally to boss resistances it is totally useless against bosses on a horse bc they are way too fast and just jump over it and don't get hit by it at all. So Night Cavalry, Tree Sentinels, Loretta etc. are unbeatable without having a plan B using some other stuff. Just saying.

                                                                  • Anonymous

Most bosses are staggered in 2-4 casts, you can cast it pretty quickly and it doesn't even use much FP. Not to mention the flames themselves do decent damage on their own. Combining this with the Dagger Talisman can absolutely SHRED bosses, if they aren't too quick and agile. It is slow enough that really fast bosses are tough to hit with it. But besides that, this thing is OP. I'm actually going to stop using it unless I'm really stuck on a boss because it's just that powerful.

                                                                    • Anonymous

Malenia has low enough poise to get stunned by a curved sword (so long as she doesn't have hyperarmor), but she has the stance/posture of a large enemy so two hits from this skill would put her in a brake/riposte state, while it would take many more hits from a curved sword to do the same.

It consistently staggers every single boss in 2-3 hits of it, and it’s got great range, quick use time and low FP cost. This thing trivializes most bosses in the game.

                                                                                  Very powerful on S scaling Str heavy weapons with high AR. I found it to be most useful on the Giant-Crusher and Watchdog's Greatsword. You get high damage with the weapon art, weapon's R1/R2, and the crit after stance break. Colossal weapons in general just got a huge buff to 2hand damage and blocking, so you literally have a massively damaging, high blocking, stagger machine with great AoE and hyper armor heavies.

In multiplayer this is one of the most disappointing useless hot garbage u can ever bring to the party. Singleplayer Godrick breaks in 3 hits. Multiplayer Godrick breaks in more than 8 hits. You are much more useful with a high damage, or status AoW than with this useless garbage(in multiplayer).

I’m at 22 strength and 63 dex running twin Noble Slender words and I usually hit for 1400+ On Farum Azula Beastmen running a keen infusion. What are you guys getting for damage? I know most use it for stagger ability but was interested in what everyone else is getting damage wise and stats invested.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Lol stop saying this will be needed or you’ll curse it to happen. It seems unlikely to me since the damage is lower then hoarfrost ever was, you cast it slower then most other Ashe’s of war, and you have to be in the perfect distance to get it to work. It’s not as spammable nor is the range nearly as large as the area affected by hoarfrost. The poise damage is absolutely amazing, but it seems to be perfectly balanced imo. Not everyone can properly use this like the hoarfrost being easy mode impossible to miss, this one is very possible to mess up on casting.

And does it benefit from scholar's armament? And if yes for that last one, does it benefit even more from Clayman's Harpoon + Scholar's Armament?

Using dual scimitars as a secondary weapon to my mist raptor claw jump/crit build, and I randomly decided to slap this on the scimitars. The decent damage of this paired with the high crit damage from my misericorde afterwards has this doing some of pretty nutty damage, and overall it has been a pretty fun experience. Not as fun as the jump claws, but definitely one of my favorites. Also a pretty decent art in pvp, nice damage to players and pretty wide/long range that can help a bit fighting against ganks. Overall I'd recommend it.
