Frenzied Burst is an Incantation in Elden Ring. Frenzied Burst spell releases concentrated blasts of the flame of frenzy. When charged, the blast can easily penetrate the enemy's guard. Updated to Patch 1.07.

 

Incantations originating from the maddening Three Fingers.

Releases concentrated blasts of the yellow flame of frenzy from the caster's eyes.
Charging enhances potency, enabling the blasts to penetrate the enemy's guard.

In times past, every single person who attempted to control the flame of frenzy succumbed to madness after a desperate internal struggle. This incantation is testament to a meager victory.

Elden Ring Frenzied Burst Guide

  • Frenzied Flame Incantation
  • Stamina Cost: 33
  • Deals Fire damage
  • Charging the blast deals 23.5% more damage, penetrates enemies, and deals massive stamina damage to shield-blocking targets.
  • Long range (similar to Glintstone Cometshard), fast travel speed, and moderate damage make this an excellent long-ranged tool in a Faith user's arsenal.
  • This spell also does not trigger enemies' auto-dodge animations (most often in NPC invaders) similar to an uncharged Lightning Spear.  Very useful in builds that are leaning more towards fire incants instead of lighting incants.
  • Inflicts Madness buildup (90 normal/105 charged) on opponents and also (20 normal/30 charged) on self.
    • The self inflicted madness is fairly negligible, but that also means it is not useful for triggering the Black Dumpling effect.
    • Note that all but a handful of enemies in PVE are immune to Madness.
  • Note: As of Patch 1.07 Poise Damage and Attack Power when charged has been increased.

        Charging makes it penetrate targets, you can line up shots to kill 2 or more enemies at once. Lock on to the last target in the line. Try it out at the Rampart Tower in Stormveil against the stormhawks.

                Overpowered. As a pure faith user doing a co op playthrough with a friend using a pure int build I think this spell outclasses anything low to mid int range by an absurd margin.
                Loretta's bow doesn't do nearly as much damage.

                  one of the best pve incants in the game, ng+7 and it allows you to one shot most large enemies the main component to making it work is having the frenzied seal

                    I affectionately call this the "Schizoflame Railgun." Its minor spiraling occasionally makes it catch a nearby surface and get blocked, and some enemies will accidentally sidestep it, but good lord it can shoot from so far away. A great tool for dealing with annoying sniper enemies or eliminating some otherwise annoying but really agile enemies like those damned hawks or strays.

                      I'm disappointed with the damage from this.

                      I thought I'd try and build specifically for it and in NG+ with 2 frenzied Flame seals, ritual sword Talisman, Flocks Canvas, Godfrey Icon & Fire Scorpion Charm it takes 2 charged attacks to kill the banished knights in stormvale.

                      Combining the lackluster damage with the slow charge time makes it feel like it's not worth bothering, but maybe I'm missing something.

                      Obviously the madness aspect is nice for PvP but how often are people realistically going to get hit by spells in PvP?

                              This is the only Frenzied Flame incantation that a PvE player is likely to find useful. Darkly fitting, since the description text implies that is the only Frenzied Flame incantation that is safe to use.

                              Perhaps the final effect of succumbing to Madness is to being turned into a PvP player.

                                This is brilliant for deleting Banished Knights, since they usually do a slow-walk to you with their shield raised when you're out of their range. Charged version = shield is basically useless. :D

                                    If you need a safe way of killing Gideon and managing the fight once he starts spamming spells, look no further than this. You can snipe him from clear across the arena with it without him being able to land a spell

                                        I've noticed that if you use this on the dragon with low health that's spamming the lighting bolts near the end of Crumbling Frarum Azula, he will fly away and not come back, or sometimes just disappear. He'll stay gone until you reload the area. idk if this is a bug or what.

                                          range is much higher than comet, tied with loretta bow sorcery. High damage, penetrates enemies and shields, builds up frenzy in human npcs and can't be dodged on pve.

                                            Randomally deleted both NG+ Moongrum and Gidion for about 18000 damage with 2 Charged Frenzied Bursts cast with a 301 Incant Scaling Dragon Communion Seal. No idea why it did so much, seemed almost like the Inescapable Frenzy One-Shot set up but with a piercing long ranged attack. Not exactly complaining but can't seem to replicate it against the Flame Guardians in the Guardians Garrison, so unsure why it happened at all, let alone twice now.

                                              Absolutely shreds Crucible Knights with enough stat investment and the right distance. Pierces straight through shields. Might be one of the best spells in the game for dealing with tanky knights

                                                This spell is really good against Malenia's first phase on a faith build. She can't dodge it and she's too slow and passive to close the distance.

                                                  Has anyone noticed 'frenzied burst' is missing target locked enemies even if they are well within its range and not at a tricky elevation?

                                                  I know if an enemy changes their elevation either jumping down or jumping up to a ledge or whatever FB can miss, but I've never had it miss a mounted knight the way it has been earlier on today. I didn't think to keep count of the casts that hit and those that missed, but it wasn't the odd miss here and there it was missing three or four casts in a row. I'd appreciate it if anyone else who's been seeing it lose its pinpoint accuracy replied to this commentt.

                                                    This spell is responsible for the nerfing of the whole family. Seriously, only this spell and the fact that the madness affliction could be chained needed to be nerfed. No reduction on Frenzy build up from the Howl of Shabriri, Flame of Frenzy, and making Inescapable Frenzy do mediocre damage compared to how hard it is to land.

                                                        someone mentions frenzied burst no longer passing through one enemy to hit a target locked enemy behind it. I was farming for poison-blooms outside morne tunnel yesterday, target locking the giant flowers furthest from me then lining up so the frenzied burst would pass through one to hit the other. It definitely still works, I was casting from the same distance every time, to be sure the poison cloud AoE couldn't reach me, and it was consistently hitting both flowers in one cast and doing the same damage to both.

                                                        • Starting a new pew pew character. Does arcane still affect this significantly when cast from the dragon seal? Or is it better just to double up on the frenzy flame seal for the extra 20%?

                                                            One thing I just noticed that I haven't seen mentioned is hitting an enemy seems to reduce the range of the rest of the follow-through. I'm seeing this when farming the 3 Stormveil birds just outside Rampart Tower grace. When you leave the doorway, 2 of them are lined up. If you lock onto the furthest of the two and fire through the closer one, you won't hit the one you're locked to. But if you fire another from the same spot, you will hit it.

                                                            • Really funny how after the fix I haven't seen a single person in pvp use this over like...what, 1000 fights? Looks like everyone only wanted a cheap stunlock to death and now no one cares about it. Still fun for pve tho.

                                                                One of the best PvP sniping options - it scales well and is easy to stack damage boosts with, unlike greatbows/ballistas, the charging animation is easier to conceal than Loretta's Greatbow, and it's easier to aim than Cannon of Haima.

Godfrey's Icon, Fire Scorpion, and Flock Canvas Talisman, will multiply the charged blast damage by a total of 40% on top of the innate 20% charged damage.

Previously, you were able to proc madness in two hits on every seal, aside from Dragon Communion Seal, and now it ranges from 3-4 to accomplish the same thing. The issue is that this spell isn't easy to hit twice to begin with, and the fact that you potentially must hit it four times makes it nearly impossible to pull off. The best fix would have to completely remove arcane adding madness but keep the spell as is, and in the best case scenario they figure out a way to make it not add madness on rolls.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

The range and esthetics of it is still awesome. I'm glad unreasonably powerful stuff is nerfed, although i still want there to be a diverse meta; so if one powerful element of the game dwindles into obscurity I'd kinda want the same for everything else. Of course not everything can be meta as it ruins the satisfaction of progressing into something grand.

If they have something like 80arc/80fai and charge it to full, you might need around 600 mind, although this is a massive investment in arcane/faith and charging it is not optimal in most situations. 425 mind will resist 99% of frenzied bursts, you just need the talisman and some fire prelate armour pieces.
