          This doesn't count as a jump attack for purposes of the Claw Talisman but the front flip DOES count as a roll for purposes of the Briar set. The Briar set does damage before the attack so it will pop a bubble in time to let the real damage connect.

            Putting it on average sized weapons instead of great weapons and colossal weapons is rather comical, there's something really funny about a basic little short sword pancaking an armor clad knight.

            • Anonymous

              I put this on a short sword. You won't think a 3 weight weapon can have hyper armor and flatten anything it hits.

                can anyone confirm LC is lost for that playthrough if the lion guardian is killed by a spirit summons instead of the player? I tried a test just to see, LC can be removed from the original weapon it was on and replaced with a different AoW, but even though I had wild strikes on the claymore LC wasn't showing in the menu for me to be able to put it on a different weapon. the only LC showing in the menu is on great stars, and it has the symbol in the corner that shows its already on a weapon. I have no idea what's happening here, I know I can take a non unique weapon art off one weapon and put it on something I prefer to use, I've done it quite a few times, but LC is the only skill that hasn't been available in the AoW menu after being taken off the weapon it was originally on. does anyone know why?

                  this on great stars with bloodlfame blade absolutely destroyed both duelists on the path and right outside the Colosseum in leyndell.

                    someone says they didn't have this drop from the lion guardian at fort gael, I haven't been able to reply directly to the anonymous comment, but they think they are locked out of getting the lions claw AoW for their playthrough. that is not the case, the claymore found in castle morne has lions claw as its default skill, it can be gotten much earlier and much easier than from fort gael, it isn't a unique skill it can be removed from the claymore and put on any weapon you choose.

                      so what exactly is hyper armour? does it mean you won't take any damage or that you can't be knocked out of any given action that has hyper armour? or a little of both, less damage and less chance of being interrupted? I used this on the crucible knight past the golden shade boss in leyndell, it patrols the same walkway the invisible scarab that drops barrier of gold is on, they hit hard but it wasn't able to stop me using this AoW on it, I think I did take damage when I was hit in the middle of it, but I'm not sure if the damage was from it hitting me before I could get close enough to it to use the AoW on it.

                        WARNING EVERYONE!
                        If you yourself don't kill the lion guardian it doesn't drop the ash of war and the enemy doesn't respawn, I came here late game and thought it would be fun to see if one of my spirit summons could solo the lion and it did and now I'm locked out of this ash for this playthrough

                        • Did some research on the type of damage this Weapon Art would do. Although the Description says, "Somersault forwards, striking foes with armament," it is actually going deal the same type of damage as the weapon you are using. Examples:
                          -Zweihander and Greatsword will deal "Standard" damage.
                          -Large Club and Great Mace will deal "Strike" damage.
                          -Pickaxe and Rusted Anchor will deal "Pierce" damage.
                          -Uchigatana and Nagakiba will deal "Slash" damage.

                          I referenced this from an ER - Motion Value spreadsheet where it also says that this attack has a Motion Value of 240; For comparison, the Colossal Sword Crouch "Poke" has an MV of 107. With the right weapon setup, this Ash of War should deal some absolutely ludicrous damage. A funny example is that those "Pierce" weapons, such as the Pickaxe or Rusted Anchor, will deal absurd damage on top of Counter Attacks and a Spear Talisman.

                            This on the Guts greatsword is a powerhouse in pve. Nearly all pve can be easily done on a two-handing str build with guts using lion's claw or flames of the redmanes as appropriate, starscourge greatsword, and a bow or crossbow (mostly for pulling when it's needed).

                              I use this on my offhand nagakiba with thunderbolt on my main hand one. It is insanely good as a trade punish. Crouch poke spamming greatsword users get BTFO. The hyper armor on this is literally unbreakable from my experience. It can also cover the distance of a roll. The amount of duels I win specifically with lions claw as my last hit is crazy. I'm shocked at how rare this AOW seems to be. I barely see anybody use it against me. It looks cool and it's great in PVE and PVP

                                  This thing on the greatsword is insane. Currently doing 1700 a hit while breaking poise extremely fast, and it’s spammable as heck with the 1.04 update.

                                    It got buffed, the animation is quite faster now. It became much more viable to use during fast paced boss fights after the patch 1.04.

                                      has a bit of higher FP cost compared to other ashes but definitely worth it. You gain so much hyper armor during the animation it's ridiculous. It also deals a ton of poise damage which means most smaller enemies will be have their guard broken.

                                        I like the artorias attack just wish it did more dmg or added iframes during the jump or something cuz I can't really figure out what the main benefit of this is over royal knights resolve which costs less fp, does more dmg and is much more flexible.

                                          -If you're looking to get this early, get some runes, and go to the isolated merchant east of the temple in Caelid and buy however many you can get.
                                          -Get a bow from starting class, serpent bow if you have the stats, or buy it from the merchant in Limgrave on the beach.
                                          -Get to Fort wherever who cares is, go along the right and kill the guy before the ladder.
                                          -Quit save and reload because holy **** purple archer funny, kill guy setting on the ledge or backstab if you can kill him.
                                          -Jump down and left to the little ledge/precipe and hide in the room there to get your bearings/talisman.
                                          -Stand on the ledge and shoot at it while it attacks. It can also be hit rather easily here as it dodges into the wall usually and can be hit rather easily this way.
                                          -About three applications of poison will kill it relatively safely but be wary of its jump attack as it can hit you or put it on the ledge with you, if this happens you can always save/quit to put it back or crouch and wait forever for it to bumble back to its starting location.

                                            The hyper armor and poise damage this skill has is ridiculous; even on a twin-blade, it can poise-break enemies that would require multiple hits from a great weapon. If you try to use it without FP, you don't get the hyper armor, the extra poise damage, or the increased attack damage, but it's still a cool flip that hits about as hard as a jumping strong attack.

                                              IMPORTANT: this skill gives you nearly infinite (or infinite) poise. I was able to cast it through the barrage of attacks that enemy with many arms does. (You know, that enemy weak to healing spells, has a ton of arms and attacks super fast)

                                                put this on a blood greatsword right as you are about to bleed someone out then let the Lions claw do the heavy slam and inflict bleed and you can pretend you splattered your enemy, on top of the fact that its probably gonna do alot of damage given that Lion's claw hits like a truck. Plus its part of the Guts Roleplay.

                                                  does it do more damage if you 2h it on a GS? and if your shield doesn't have a skill, will it count as 2h damage?
