      also known as "Bonk of Haima", this spell is pretty useful in different situations because:
      - it has a follow up attack, meaning that if the first hit misses there's still a chance for the 2nd one to do the job;
      - it stomps human-size enemies on the ground, giving you a bit of time to either recover/gain distance or even prepare another attack;
      - gives a decent amount of poise once the cast is half way, wich can be useful for trading in PvP.

      • Probably my favorite magical weapon sorcery along with Carian Slicer, both for PVE and PVP.
        This spell is especially valuable in low poise mage builds in PVP , since people never expect a lightly dressed mage to be able to poise through their attack and trade for half their health, and that is exactly what Gavel of Haima allows you to do.

          bonking insta proccs rotten winged talisman and possibly other consecutive hit effects in one cast, and allows you to combo into carian slicer to get 1-2 buffed casts for free as the enemy is trying to get up

            It's weird that you don't get this from the sorcerer in the graveyard near the church of plague. Nothing even mentions the guy there ether despite him being quite challenging to beat yet dropping nothing and only guarding beast blood

              With the purge of chaincasting, this spell is ironically the only one to benefit from the removal of chaincasting, particularly because the second cast is a few milliseconds slower than the first cast. This means that you'll whip out Haima much faster now at the cost of it not chaincasting anymore. As well as the spell having great recovery frames, you can easily cast into a Swift Glintstone Shard (or any other spell) and then back into a Haima without proccing the slower second cast of Haima.

                They gave this way to much hyperarmour can run a 10 poise setup and hyperarmour through so much things. I'm not saying a damage nerf the damage is fine just the hyperarmour is a bit overtuned.

                    There a glitch that if you cast 2 spell and then cast this nothing will happen and you lost fp. At first i think it's bad glitch that make this spell wasted, But I accidently glitch this while fighting mob and it's flattened to the ground with addiotional 1k damage without animation.

                    2 slicer then instant hammer!, Now mage have our own rockslinger lightning like combo.

                      With the nerf to the Adula's Moonblade, this is my new favorite spell. Completely destroys human-type enemies by just chain-stomping them to the ground. Really good for invaders, the Black Knife Assassin-types like Alecto, and the knight-type enemies (especially ones without a shield). The hyperarmor you get while casting is just fantastic.

                      • Testing this in PVE against larger mobs like Omens, the follow-up attack on this is not useful as it will not chain stagger/knockdown the target. Instead I found it best to cast it once for the knockdown and then quickswap to Slicer for DPS.

                          When an earlier comment said it staggers nearly everything, that includes Crucible Knights. Just used it to help a summoner for Crucible Knight & Misbegotten Warrior and every swing staggered him. So have fun with that all you Gavel Chads.

                              just wanted to provide some notes after 100 pvp matches using this :

                              - perfect for aggressive opponents if you don't want to rely on something like storm stomp - even with 8 poise, the amount of hyperarmor allows you to tank anything but colossals - the pancake will usually result in players rolling away, giving you opportunity to chain the cast into something else

                              - a good set up with this is after the first cast, COMET can be chain casted right after - the amount of noise and blue magic on screen acts as an effective mask to hide your quick casts and is extremely difficult to dodge if it isn't expected

                              - you're also able to cast the followup attack after something like adula's,slicer,etc - the followup has a delayed windup that seems to catch panic rollers often - pair this with something that will force a roll into you

                              - the forward hitbox on the gavel's aoe is more extended than you think

                              • Anonymous

                                Spellblade and Battlemages rejoice! After the buffs it recieved, it grants over 100 Poise while casting and does more damage than Comet for the same FP cost, but in an AOE with massive stagger.

                                  You can roll catch people with it after the storm stomp AoW - and if they try to hit you instead of rolling you now have some hyper armor! Absolutely love this thing after the patch.

                                    I don't know about before 1.04, but as of right now, this spell DOES get the bonus from the Carian Glintstone Staff ("Boosts Carian sword sorceries") but DOES NOT get the bonus from the Carian Glintblade Staff ("Boosts Glintblade sorceries").

                                      the amount of poise you get while casting this is pretty bonkers. at 84 while casting I don't get interrupted by banished knights

                                        Before patch 1.04: this spell is cool but not very practical, you'll either get hit out of it or it'll just be too slow to hit what you're trying to hit
                                        Reading the 1.04 patch notes: That's it! I'm gettin me mallet!

                                        • 1.04 patch made this spell an absolute planet-crusher. Seemingly infinite poise when casting it and it knocks down/staggers nearly everything. Might be an auto-include for all mages now.

                                            As of patch 1.04 this spell is still bugged as of chaincasting. For some reason this spell will still bug out if you cast a different spell twice and then using Gavel will bug into the default casting animation instead of casting Gavel. I speculate it's because the game is trying to recall the next attack for Gavel but bugs out because Gavel does NOT have a third chain of attack. This is similar to the Shatter Earth bug, another spell that has two chainable attacks, where the game tries to recall the next attack for Shatter Earth but fails to do so because it too lacks a third chainable attack.

                                              This spell is bugged when you use it with Carian Slicer. If you use the slicer once then the gavel it will chain normally, but if you swing the slicer twice and then the gavel it will cause the animation to play like you're shooting a pebble with no visible gavel, and if the tip of your staff connects with an enemy it will deal the damage and slam them into the ground.

                                                  Even without poise, you can still use this spell to deal with certain situations, such has slower bosses, like the avatars, which have long recovery windows in which you can use it to break their stance reliably, or you can use it on a group if timed properly to mash them into the ground.

                                                  It can be used has a poise breaker for close range, but likely wont work as well on fast bosses or aggressive ones.

                                                          For any INT players in the Triple Crystalian fight, this is a good spell to bring. The best poise breakers seem to be Gavel of Haima, then Cannon of Haima, then Greatsword Phalanx in that order. Gavel breaks the fastest but requires melee range very FP efficient though, Cannon takes a few hits but can be cast from a distance AND stuns/knocksdown Crystalians BEFORE POISE BREAK, GSP is OK but it can miss the jumping Spear Crystalian.

                                                              This spell has great AoE damage for its cost. However, it is lacking in the hyper-armor, sadly. Basic wolves can and will interrupt the animation.

Turned the putrid crystallians 3 hour nightmare of mine into a 1 try.
