Elden Ring Golden Slam Guide, Notes & Tips
- This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Golden Slam.
- FP Cost: 22 on use
- This Skill is not Chargeable.
- Upon activation, the user briefly crouches before leaping into the air with holy power, falling down and creating a shockwave at the point of impact.
- From activation until landing (assuming terrain is completely flat), it takes 2 seconds for the Weapon Skill to deal damage.
- Compared to Ground Slam, it does about 20-30% more damage (tested on albinaurics at Mohgwyn Palace)
- Consider, however, that Ground Slam deals physical damage, while Golden Slam deals Holy damage. Many bosses are highly resistant to Holy damage, and it may be more effective to use the "weaker" Ground Slam instead
- Has a high poise modifier, allowing the player to not be staggered by most attacks
- If used without FP:
- Produces no shockwave on impact.
- Deals less damage on hit
