      Wish this spell was more buff-focused. Give it the same or similar cost/duration as Golden Vow, change it to an aura buff so the two don't stack, and as a bonus, give a smaller damage buff with no downsides to allies in range who have accepted the frenzied flame, similar to the frenzyflame stone. Maybe +15% like GV, without the damage negation. Not a fan of Howl's niche PvP status right now.

      • This would be good in PvP if it didn't absolutely shred your defenses. Basically a guaranteed madness proc if you catch someone in it but it doesn't seem to get any hyperarmor and the recovery animation from casting it is so long you can't effectively capitalize on getting them mad. The best way I've found to use it is cast it from afar to get the damage buff and then nuke them with Giantsflame.

          It doesn't need a lower faith requirement. We don't need another Flame Grant Me Strength that everyone and their dog can throw onto their build no matter what their playstyle is. It's allowed to be an oddity and faith builds are allowed to have buffs that you actually need to be a somewhat committed faith build to cast.

            the increased damage taken is not worth it especially on ng plus 3 and above. rallyingstandard and goldenvow is much more safer.

              Old Lord's Talisman impacts the duration of the buff
              I timed it with and without (from the end of the howl, when you can move):

              Without: ~18s
              With talisman: ~22s

              IMO very worth it to use the talisman if you're going to try to run a PvP glass cannon build with this.

                I feel like this would be a better spell if either A: it has a smaller faith requirement, or B: Lasts longer. If given the Black Dumpling and proc Madness on yourself with this spell, you’d get one of the strongest boosts in attack power in the entire game, but to counteract this you also get a penalty to your defense, and also having to deal with the stun time and lost FP from proccing Madness on yourself. Those two things balances the pros and cons nicely.

                But the cons outweigh the pros. It’s high faith requirement is a bit high for a buff paired debuff of equal value, like put it down to 20 faith, so more people can use it and complain about how they die so often with it.

                And the duration is just abysmal! 20 seconds! Even Flame, Grant Me Strength, who’s only downside is its low duration, lasts 10 seconds longer than this! This is comparable durations to War Cry, Barbaric Roar and Braggart Roar, but unlike HoS, it is applied instantaneous, can be used by anyone that means the weapon requirement, and you don’t even get a defense penalty! And making it last longer wouldn’t be that making it OP, because you’d also be keeping the defense debuff for just as long if it was ever extended.

                Sure it can do damage and builds up Madness to nearby enemies, but that isn’t the point of the spell, it is the buff you get from it.

                So in my opinion From should either lower its Requirement to something like 20 Faith, or extend the duration to 45-60 seconds. And if you think that is too long, just remember the Boilblood Aromatic lasts 60 seconds and is exactly like HoS with attack buff and defense debuff.

                Anyway thank you for listening to my TED Talk.

                  Pretty sure the dmg number is wrong, as it gives 20% increase damage and not 25%, at least in the tests I've done.

                    This spell looked cool as hell so I whipped it out against my friends once. It did 14 damage and got me oneshot during it LOL

                      Does anyone know if increasing the potency of this incantations ha any effect on how much madness buildup on yourself you get?

                      • It's so strange that this is meant to be a body buff, but makes absolutely no mention of any buff, damage increase, or stat effects in the description or anywhere! While doing my first blind playthrough with my FTH caster I literally just thought this was a super weak AOE damage spell for madness based characters to use!

                        I know FROM can be pretty vague about game mechanics sometimes, but I've never seen them not even HINT at what a weapon or spell's primary usage is supposed to be... Which leads me to think it was surely accidental oversight or missing part of the item description.

                            One thing I'm not seeing mentioned is how handy this can be when co-oping if you want to draw aggro. It gives you the same effect as Shabriri's Woe, and enemies will target you over other players. I've used it a lot when co-oping with my buddy who plays a sorcerer so he doesn't pull aggro as soon as he casts two spells.

                              Something interesting to note, Ive been doing quite a few tests and I have found that the Madness build up is tied to your Framerate.
                              All the Frenzy incantations seem to adhere to this, but this one is the most prominent.

                              At 452 focus wearing the Clarifying Horn Charm +1, Nomadic Merchant's Finery (Altered), Preceptors Gloves, Page Boots, and Commoners headband (Altered) and testing at the Castle Sol Rooftop site of grace.
                              If I move slightly towards and look exactly North East from the site of Grace, facing a corner of the arena with walls, the madness gauge leaves alot of space left until it procs.
                              If I look in exactly the opposite direction, towards where the rest of the castle is down below having it rendered, the Madness gauge fills all the way and procs madness on me. I can reliably get this to repeat in other areas of the game where I have frame rate differences and the results are pretty consistent.

                                I like this spell a lot, but it's duration is what hurts it the most in comparison to other buff spells. The 20 second duration, plus having to play around it's absorption shred, makes it hard to justify over other options if you're fighting at close range. But when you aren't, though, it's great; I think it's probably one of the best options for faith casters. But even if you prefer melee, it's still a reliable buff in any situation where you need to punish something from a distance. Additionally, if you have the black dumpling, you could probably cast it with low enough focus and proc madness for even more damage.

                                  Tested it on a +5 Dragon Communion Seal and the buff lasts around 20 seconds. This was with 33 FTH & 22 ARC, not sure about the Talisman that buffs the spell duration however since I lack it on a fresh character.

                                    The amount of madness this spell applies is only effected IF you cast it with a Seal that scales with Arcane (dragon seal) and your Arcane stat. Be warned though, it also increases the amount applied to YOU as well as the enemy.

                                      Shabriri must have been a real piece of work to be the most hated man in all of history, even more so than Rykard or even the man only known as a literal DUNG EATER.

                                        Self madness increase is 100% dependent on seal not sure why the wiki disagrees. Using my +10 dragon seal will always cause full madness buildup and stun me whereas if I use gravel stone seal or golden order or frenzied flame seal I never get stunned and the madness amount changes with each seal. Irritating cuz dragon communion is my main seal and I wanna use the buff on this but I just swap to another seal to cast it.

                                          Would be really nice if the spell description bothered to mention the buff and debuff. It's much easier to decide what spells to use if you actually know what they do, after all.

                                            If you use other madness spells against players in PVP, then you can trick them into getting close enough for this to hit. After they see you have this, they'll be a LOT more reluctant to punish your frenzy spells.

                                                  For the record, I’m working a Carcosian of Hastur build, and this incant works best on NPCs/players who come near you AFTER you’ve done the scream. You’ll be finishing up your animation while they, if they got hit, will be stuck in the madness afflict animation, allowing for more prep. It also does insane damage vs Tarnished compared to enemies, I almost one shot a duelist with +10 frenzy flame seal at around 40/40 lvl 120ish.

                                                    At +4 with the Black Flame Seal it always procs madness w/ one click. I’m level 60. Maybe is just not viable for me at this level.

                                                      This spell currently makes the madness afflicted to you also scale off of the upgrade of the seal you use. With a basic finger seal without any upgrades it afflicts me with around 60% of madness. With my +10 dragon communion seal I get afflicted before the Howl is even 30% done with the animation. Practically gives me full madness 2 times over.

The self inflicted madness buildup almost seems to be random; sometimes you'll proc it in one cast, and sometimes you'll only fill up around half the bar. Anyone have any ideas as to what factors might contribute?
