Elden Ring Lansseax's Glaive Guide

  • Stamina Cost: 55
  • Deals lightning damage
  • One of the Dragon Cult Incantations and is boosted by the Gravel Stone Seal
  • Long cast time followed by a large horizontal "glaive" swipe, with follow-up AoE damage. 
  • Should be treated as an AoE spell for dealing with groups, as the damage is mediocre for single targets.

      Sorry folks, should've specced INT if you wanted a good melee attacking spell with a projectile. Adulas moonblade even has cold buildup.

        Its great crowd control, pretty nice damage, pretty satisfying to use and its hard to get staggered out of it. Pretty great spell, though my expectations have been lowered dramatically after witnessing elden stars

          "high faith incantations lightning suck no dmg take too long to cast stuck in air full dumbass mode getting knocked down suck" -the comments. *Actual footage of me looking away as I return to my own business, one shot clapping players and the whole gank crew with scorcerous lightning of the 7 Gods with these slow wind-up incants that are otherwise useless and server no purpose*

          • i remember in my first playthrough I was an underleveled faith build that wandered into Altus. Got this from Lansseax and was pogged out of my mind. 15 levels of sub-optimal point spending later only to see it hit for half the damage of Frozen Lightning Spear that I obtained like 5 hours prior in the previous area in a random cave. Despair

              Needs more rigorous testing than I care to do, but it appears that the “glaive” hit activates the winged sword charm and its brethren.

                I fully agree with the comments about Hyper Armor, I have a sneaky suspicion that this spell scales off Dex and Faith, Might need some testing, but 80 dex would improve the cast speed and maybe run 80 faith with Gravelstone seal, I'm currently Dex arcane and I noticed when I increased my dex damage went up

                • If you can hit with the glaive and wave effect the damage starts to be respectable but good luck finding an enemy who will let you do that with how long this takes to cast

                    Thought this would be like Carian Slicer but electric. Turns out it’s an incantation that roots you to the ground and leaves you a sitting duck, at the great reward of dealing mediocre damage.

                      Takes too long to cast, so you want to cast this at distance, except the wave of lightning travels 2 inches. Still useless after the buff.

                        Still not good. People are too optimistic. Super armor comes up very late in the cast animation so you will still get knockdown combod by throwing knives for the first 2 seconds. The super armor needs to be expanded to be from the time you leave the ground for this to be worth anything, for starters. Secondly the damage is very low. You can do 7 honed bolt in the time that it takes to use this so the AOE is not even practical either. So it basically needs a doubling of its damage output OR quadrupling of its speed. Both of which I'd be very surprised to see. This on top of the aforementioned superarmor.

                          It’s viable now, but still feels a bit slow, maybe increase the fp cost in exchange for faster cast speed?

                            Ok. I tested it on a giant at secluded cell. This glaive does 1375 Fortisax does a whopping 2500 at 60 faith with appropriate gravel talisman.

                            However the glaive has more range in a 90 degree cone forward. I do believe this spell is more consistent though with a larger hitbox and you bulk damage reaches farther

                            Fortisax spears which hits harder if your opponent catches both bolts the AOE is a circle but blows out in a Cross so if people dodge diagonally from you they can avoid most of Fortisax spear. Where with the glaive your enemy has to get passed you to dodge this spell.

                            Could be worth combining the 2 starting with the glaive and then switching to Fortisax.

                              It's amazing how a little hyper armor and cast speed buffs can take an incantation that was sorely underpowerd, and turn it into a real powerhouse. So happy to have this thing be more usable; outside of niche situations.

                                This is amazing post patch, lightning builds should focus on good armor, buff def and abuse the poise now since this has knockdown can easily combo into Fortissax's Lightning Spear for amazing damage.

                                  With the new updates, I think black flame protection + golden vow can really make this skill shine on humanoid enemies since it does do a knockdown and then can combo into further knockdowns or other spells.

                                    At this point I wonder why From include half the incantations they do. If you know something is borderline useless, why a) put it in the game at all and b) replace a potentially valuable boss reward with it

                                      If we're going to have to cast it floating in the air, can we at least use it while jumping? Currently, if you get poise-broke while casting it in the air, it throws you on your back. I can't see why that would be a benefit at all if you can cast Moonblade from neutral stance while Glaive would get you surrounded while you recover.

                                        It badly needs to be reworked to be more similar to Adula's Moonblade, considering they practically do the same thing except this one is just plain worse (damage-wise less, animation-wise slower, not chain-castable, not combo-able, no status effect although it does lightning damage which is the least resisted damage type next to strike so that's okay). I really can't think of any reason why it shouldn't be. It's such a cool, damn spell too.

                                            This isn't meant for killing bosses, this is meant for cleaving through a bunch of trash mobs. It fills it's purpose quite well, tearing through groups of 6+ enemies with ease -- the problem is that there's not many situations where you're facing that many foes.

                                              Looks cool as hell, but like most high requirement lightning incantations its nearly completely useless. FromSoft please buff.

                                                Funny enough that this deals almost if not more damage than ancient dragon lighting spear while costing less and being easier to hit. Yep this is a comedy.

                                                  This seems to have a knockdown and a knockup at times, but literally without some hyper armor for the latter half of the cast you cant get it to happen 90% of the time. This is the one I hope they touch the most as lightning builds need a better skill.

                                                    Is this could just work like Dragon claw, in which it gives you increased Poise when you are in the Air then it would actually be worth it with the Cracked tear and scorpion charm. Not the strongest(still good damage) but its cool and flashy and does AOE. But like anything will knock you out of the animation. You can cancel into it with Catch Flame but it does not help much. Heck if it could at least do some decent stagger damage or something!

                                                      what a great incantation, it has so much damage, good charge up attack, deals a type of damage most enemies arent resistant to, obtained mid game but not too late, fun fight to obtain. I love using the Lightning Spear.

                                                        Could use slightly lower fp cost and allow a chain cast similar to adula's - this should be the equivalent of that.

                                                          At first I thought this is absolute garbage (It actually is). But if you hit with both the sword and the lightning wave it does decent damage. A bit higher than the frost lightning and more so than lighting spear. But if you miss with the sword, witch isn't that hard. It's just trash, the wave does less than half the total damage, putting it at about half of lighting spear damage, it got short range. Stupidly long animation and a long after cast recovery, high fp cost and high faith requirement. Someone can literally just casually walk behind, avoid the whole thing and backstab you.
                                                          At least it does have hyperarmor once you are in the air.
                                                          Every single dragon incantation, except for the magma one, is just better than this in every.

Excellent option against groups of enemies on top of being able to do good damage against single targets if you hit them in the sweet spot. Chunks most bosses for huge damage per swing, and easily procs frostbite for large instantaneous damage and increased damage from further hits.

                                                              This spell is great on bosses when you have a summon as a distraction or in multi-player.

                                                              I feel it is superior to Ancient Dragon Lightning Spear and Fortissax's Lightning Spear because of the massive reach the glaive gives you. Rather than smashing the ground below the caster it swings out a substantial distance from the caster while also adding the lightning bolt wave aftermath that is iconic for these spells.

                                                              In multi-player I tend to Rotten Breath bosses then use Lansseax's Glaive to stagger them making them easy targets for a Flame of Fury attack.

Did from even test this thing?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

It's an ok AoE spell since it covers alot of range but against single target you could do more damage within the same time frame than this by just casting lightning spear twice uncharged.

                                                                              • long wind up, mediocre damage, and leaves you completely vulnerable while casting to the point you can easily be knocked out of the cast. Not worth the 40 points of faith is takes to use. Needs at bare minimum a damage buff and hyper armor.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              The lightning bolts coming from the skill are pretty weak. Maybe it s good in water but I didn't test.
