Last Rites is currently bugged and makes some spells like catch flame and the frenzy incants. do no damage while it's active.
Stacks with Sacred Order Ash of War, and this damage boost carries over to all weapons and catalysts even if you are cycling through weapons. Unsure about the 25 holy damage to Catalysts as that should not impact the spell multiplier at all, but it seems to work due to some spell interactions I've noticed. The 25 Holy Damage greatly impacts Elden Stars when using it in PvP. The chip damage from the bolts does relatively minimal damage on its own, but with Last Rites active, I seem to do over 350 damage to players with the chip damage consistently (Normally I would be doing 120-140)... and on top of that, the Regal Omen Bairn is also impacted by this ash of war, though it is still notably bad considering the massive FP cost of the item and how slow it casts.
Now if only PvE enemies didn't have such high Holy Resistance, this would actually boost Holy to being high-tier if not for half of the bosses having 40-80% resist. Ah well, at least Deathbirds become trivial... Wish Holy had more of an impact against more "hollow-like" enemies like the obvious zombies in catacombs and the common-folk who are unable to die.
Does the bonus flat holy damage apply to bows?
Does this effect spells/incantations? Given how infrequently such buffs effect casting, I'm skeptical, but the wording makes it seem like it does.
Since no one commented, as the buff is on the character and not on the weapon, you can swap to the bow to eliminate a certain skeleton in a particular terrible spot in the same catacombs you've found it.
This goes with Sword of Night and Flame like peanut butter and jelly.
very good buff against anything undead
Strangely it affects Omen Bairn and Regal Omen Bairn. The +25 flat dmg applies to every bolt individually, aswell as the initial aoe. Which adds 200 and 375 extra damage respectively, beyond the 10% buff. Making it the most effective aura buff to amp their damage. The added flat damage is further increased by other dmg buffs, like sacred scorpion etc. For the few who feel like any of the Bairns are important enough to decide which buff to use based on em.
I suppose amping the flat dmg applies to regular weapons as well. Flat dmg buff is better the faster you hit. if it can be buffed as well that might be useful. I gotta go back to my Labs Between and look into this buff further. I will get back on this.
Apparently this also buffs Holy Water Pot against Undead. Making me deal several thousand damage against Skeletons and Deathbird.
I combined last rights with the treaspear AOW sacred order and it was doing over 1300 damage for a light attack on a undead while it was just level 15
This aow is bugged as well as Shared Order aow. Aow like Storm Blade does 0 damage in pvp and pve when buff is applied. Waterfal dance does reduced damage too when the buff is applied. Fix it.
I don't know if it's due to the 1.07 patch but last rites makes enemies inside the cloud from sleep pots take damage tiks
There is a strange glitch while you have this buff active. If you summon the spirit wolves and go near enemies your character and the wolves will start taking 1HP of damage for some reason.
Does not boost spells, unlike Shared Order.
Which is strange considering they basically do the same thing and override each other (because both are aura buff, just like Golden Vow)
I tested with all 4 element basic spells: Glintstone Pebble (the sorcery, not the skill) for magic, Flame Sling for fire, Discus of Light for holy, and Lightning Spear for lightning.
Shared Order adds damage to all these spells, but Last Rites do nothing.
Both skills add holy damage to melee attacks as expected though.
does the buff to allies include spirit ashes, or just human allies?
The buff gives an extra 25 holy dmg, but is not needed to permakill skelis, the weapon has this ability already.
This is the only skill in the game that uses the Haligtree incantation motif, the same one you get when you use Miquella's Needle.
Also prevents undead from reviving again.
If you apply this buff to yourself and have a weapon with the Ash of War Vacuum Slice. The blade projectile does 0 damage (but will still do posture damage). Probably a bug.
This skill is noteworthy in that it applies Sacred Order as a self buff rather than an armament buff, so you can change weapons freely. I don't think any other skill or incantation does that. Super helpful for areas with large numbers of undead enemies, as Sacred Order stops them from reviving.
What a stuoid weapon description, miyazaki is so lazy
Sacred Order - Provides the Sacred affinity, which adds Holy damage and Faith scaling, decreases physical damage, most damage negation.
Source - https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Ash+of+War:+Sacred+Order
It buffs attack power +25 for 45 seconds and you can switch to main weapon without it disappearing, like I've noticed with other buff weapons.
Just for everyone asking, it has a Holy affinity and Sacred Order infuses Holy on everyone’s weapons
What does the buff do?
So what does it do exactly stat wise
