      I think this incantation doesn’t fall off into late and end game. It does crazy frost build up and is quicker to cast than ancient dragons lightning strike. It’s also a lot quicker to cast than Ancient Dragons. Don’t sleep on this, it’s also a good role catcher in Dulles if you catch someone up close and force them to either run, and get caught by the outward strikes. Thumbs up!

        This does great damage on bosses that I've used it against, and sometimes clustered enemies. I love it, don't regret the effort to go after it at all (admittedly it wasn't much but still). People who try to use it like Ancient Dragon's or Fortissax's Lightning Spear incantations are using it wrong and will be disappointed because it doesn't work the same way.

          it sucks that this is such a stat hog. can't do a pure ice lightning build without an atrocious stat spread

            Kind of wish the Gravel Stone seal had dex/fth scaling, and the frost + red lightning weapons removed the str requirement and added some faith scaling so that all lightning-based weps/incants could be dex/fth... I mean, since frost lightning is different from yellow/red, maybe give them a different scaling, perhaps treat it like Gravity where you instead need small investment in faith to give it good use (since the sword and halberd have a pretty good base damage on the buff anyways).

            Unrelated: Since I bring up changing stat scaling, give all Holy Incantations pure faith since none of the Holy weapons have int scaling anyways, thanks.

              I have no idea why people are saying this is crap, but JUST to spite you guys, I used ONLY this spell to defeat Fortisaxx the Lichdragon. And you know what? I got it on my third try.

                holy damage users, have you tried using frostbite on the endgame bosses to see how much it reduces their holy defense? if it's by a lot, that might make this incant a must for holy builds.

                  I've only just got this and I wasn't expecting too much from it after reading some of the comments here, but I've just killed one of those op giant lobster things in two casts.

                    This incantation is why I'm there now, after reading the comments though I don't think its worth the bother of killing the boss that drops it.

                      Those saying this spell is bad are put of their mind. If you land the initial slam and followup lightning on an enemy you can get upwards of 1800 damage depending on your FTH and choice of seal. They sped the animation up considerably and added a fair amount of poise also. For FP consumed vs damage ratio, this is a pretty efficient spell.

                      • When I cast this, it has me plunge the spear into the ground, and it would do damage then (usually around 500ish) in the area right around where I'd stabbed. But then sometimes, the trail of lightning shows up once or twice in seemingly random spots. It never reliably sends out a wave of lightning strikes.

                        • I really want to like this spell, but frankly it sucks, I switched to Lansseax's Glaive as it can reliably hit through walls with predictable AOE, (great for ambushing Imps)
                          FYI if anyone is frustrated by a Powerful regular Mob in the game, start Hunting it. Figure out what it's weak to and when you see it you'll be relaxed about it.
                          I hunt Royal Revenants all the time now. From software needs to Either make this a Straight upgrade to Lightning Spear, with maybe a but grater range (same spell but Frost Lightning Spear). Or seriously buff it, it has zero poise and is slow as mud.

                            This spell needs better tracking. maybe the wind up is a little slow- but where this thing suffers is the fact that when you try to adjust your trajectory, your turning in such a slow manner, that its completely useless.

                              I found this spell really shines for the very large(long) bosses like Regal Ancestor Spirit. Their body engulfs most of the path of the spell and they get hit by almost every bolt. Regal Ancestor Spirit was pretty much done in 2 casts.

                              • Coolest lightning spell imo. I'd looove to see more ice lightning incants. I take this one always with me. It's part of every incant build I've made. Love this thing so hard

                                  This page says it inflicts 90 frostbite but i have never seen it proc. Can some one confirm it does frostbite

                                  • Anonymous

                                    Spell is good and has a very nice niche within the relatively large range of Dragon Cult incants.

                                    It has good damage with initial throw and good AoE afterwards. It definitely shines against either very big enemies or groups of smaller ones. The only other long range AoE would be best dragon girls Lightning Glaive.

                                    Downside of this spell are
                                    1. The Frost build up is a bit low. 90 sounds good but tbh I have never seen this spell proc frost outside of giant bosses. Maybe that's intantional, but I still don't like that.
                                    2. The AoE comes out a little to slow. Would be a little better if thr delay was only half as long.

                                    Anyways, really cool spell, nice damage, Poise, Okey FP cost and with a nice little uniqueness to it.
                                    If you enjoy lightning builds, definitely give this one a try!

                                        It's decent with the super armor but the delay after striking the ground should be removed completely. Then the speed would be appropriate.

                                          I believe this spell always follows the same travel path, at least on flat ground. This means that if you know it's length and such, you can always pinpoint where it is going to land and create consistent followups.

                                            The range on this is kinda weird it either feels or short or extends very far in some arenas like the caelid apostle fight

                                                The damage is ok but the cast time is a bit long without poise and the hitbox is kinda weird. There seems to be some small gaps between instances of lightning bolts where enemies won’t get hit. It’s also easy to miss the shot completely when the enemies are up close to your face. Wish there’s a explosion effect from the initial hit that can hit enemies in a small radius to solve this issue.

                                                  Fantastic spell for PVP. Don't lock on. Sometimes gets stuck on uneven terrain since it runs along the ground.

                                                    So this incantation only runs along the ground, even though the animation goes into the air. This makes no sense given that the lightning is coming DOWN. Tested on great dragonflies that were head level with character, lightning goes through them, no damage.

                                                        This is one of the most consistent of the higher level lightning spears, at least in my experience so far. The cone that gets cast in front of you is wide enough to catch 3-4 mobs as you close in for melee and long enough to get even more if you place it right. It will also get multiple hits on bigger enemies and the damage isn't half bad. It looks like it even builds up and procs frostbite. You'll need to pick your time and place because the cast animation takes a bit but it's not overly long, maybe 2-3 seconds.

                                                          From the stake to the aoe this can multi hit.. and being aoe hit multiple targets too.. and it slaps.. let's face it lightning (aside from base spear, honed bolt is trash) is mid to melee range this go round... Don't be fooled though this is very good and can hit very hard

                                                            Of all the AoE based lightning spells this one feels the most consistent to me, once you have the timing down you can easily land the initial spear on target and then the speed pattern after just feels the most optimal on most bosses and mobs compared to the others. Usually land a couple of the aftereffect lightning strikes. Plus it’s blue and looks cool lol.

                                                              Probably still my favourite lightning AoE spell, seems to land the most consistently out of them all with its pattern spread on large targets. With proper timing it’s not that hard to hit things with the inital spear either.

                                                                This spell is worthless. Honestly Lightning Spear and Horned Lightning are the only good and practical lightning spells until you get the Dragon Cult book in Farum Azula lol. You may as well use Godslayer stuff instead as you get it in Stormveil and Godslayer Seal will be better with other stuff like Wrath of Gold and the giant stunlocking fireball I forget the name of.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    This is one of the flashiest spells in the game, and it actually does more damage than other "posy" lightning spells (the red ones). The thing is that the way it works now, without any added poise whatsoever, makes you very vulnerable while casting. Jumping helps, and you can actually stand still in the air during the cast. And the concept is that the lightning spear you throw to the ground generates a radius of lightning charge (in a cone in front of you) that will hit EVERYTHING within it at the moment of impact. That means that it's more useful against large bodies enemies, like dragons, since it will actually hit all of the lightning sparks at the same enemy, doing insane damage (and likely procing frostbite). It can be very strong as AoE against mobs too, but it takes some set up (either them being anaware beforehand or doing some poise-breaking stuff like Elden Stars). By the way, Elden Stars followed by this makes you the flashiest caster of all time haha

                                                                    • Anonymous

With gravestone 41 faith barely did 1k damage and that is on the large lava lizard. Could be that it's resistant to frost or the lightning but it just doesn't cut the fat for me.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I can't seem to get it to proc on much of anything. I did get it to proc on one enemy with a single use though once, sadly I forget what enemy that was. I think they just happened to have no 'Robustness'. Most stuff seems to die before it can proc. Bosses tend to be too aggressive to get multiple uses off to proc it. But it technically does apply frost buildup.

                                                                                          This spell can hit multiple times on large creatures like dragons.

                                                                                          I've seen 4.5k damage numbers via multiple hits. Seems consistent to hit 2-3 times.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Why does it need faith? If the dragonkin where poor copies of real dragons and were created in an entirely different context, WHY WOULD THEIR MAGIC NEED FAITH IF THEY WEREN'T REAL DRAGONS?

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              the lightning medalion boosts its damage so the damage must be lightning and not ice, maybe it builds up ice status?

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                As fun as this move is to use in a group of enemies, the lack of any additional poise given during the move means you can be bumped the wrong way and get knocked out of it. Pretty much useless against any enemy closer enough for a dagger attack

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  Can completely destroy bosses, especially if you are using a good defensive spirit to tank and distract them when casting. Also very good for large groups even solo since it can travel from an elevated position to the ground below, making it very safe.
