Elden Ring Greatblade Phalanx Guide
- Carian Sorcery
- Stamina Cost: 20
- Summons 3 large sentry glintblades, at 80 Int with a Carian Regal Sceptre, each one will deal 374 magic damage before damage negation, totalling 1122 damage if all blades connect. Compared to the Glintblade Phalanx (224x5=1120 dmg) and Carian Phalanx (179x9=1611 dmg) spells this spell does just slightly more damage than the former and loses to the latter by a mile. However, each blade deals a whopping 101.75 poise damage (305.25 total), vs the other spells's 10x5 and 10x9, making it a supreme posture breaking tool for mages, maguses and spellblades.
- However, the Glintblade Phalanx Ash of War will do 100x4 poise damage, outperfoming this spell, but of course taking up the skill slot of a non-staff weapon.
- The blades will break upon coming into contact with any geometry, including enemies. This unfortunately means one cannot prep themselves with phalanx before passing through a boss fog gate, and must take care after casting to not accidentally break the blades on any surfaces to not waste any damage.
