Elden Ring Rain of Arrows Guide, Notes & Tips

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Rain of Arrows.
  • FP Cost: 20
  • This Skill is not chargeable
  • Can be cast even if you don't have 20 FP, as long as you have some
  • The Arrow's Reach Talisman can massively increase the range at which the skill can lock on to a target. (For example, this skill paired with this talisman can be used to easily aggro the Giant Crow that can be locked on to from the Palace Approach Ledge-Road in Mohgwyn Palace. )
  • If Rainbow Stone Arrow is fired using this weapon skill, the arrows' Rainbow Stone effect almost immediate disappears upon contact, although the arrows still produce the impact sound.

      I wonder if putting this on a longbow and storm arrows is similar (but smaller) than Radan's bow skill and golem arrows?

        1. Do not have a lot of runes when you attempt this, you'll lose them on your attempts to get down.
        2. When you eventually do get down, first go the the edge and get the ash you came for, if you dont know where it is , look at one of the videos.
        3. Sneak up on the golem to get the rune arc he's protecting
        4. Get killed by the golem (or beat him if your really good/strong) - anyway your still out of there with the ash - and the rune arc.
        5- Good luck. This is frustrating - but still good fun;-)

          An intersting quirk of this is that the arrows will spawn at a set height above the target unless there's an obstruction, meaning if you can catch someone under a low ceiling with this the arrows will spawn right on top of their head

            I did extensive bleed testing on the dragon in Fort Faroth, one thing I noticed about this ash of war is that each arrow in the volley has a 7/12 (~0.58) modifier on the bleed value of the arrow. This is still ok, because (assuming all land) it applies 7 times the status of the single arrow it consumes.

              Amazing against large bosses, and great with status-building-arrows. Not great against small bosses, especially fast-moving ones; most if not all of the arrows will miss.

                  100% didn’t need the 120K runes I lost dying to gravity trying to parkour dodgy tree roots after getting one shot by the death lasers.

                    Crosspost with the AoW-Page itself...

                    Costs 20FP and consumes one piece of ammunition per use. Fires a volley of 12 arrows, originating from right above the target (roughly 2,5 seconds after pressing the trigger button - spread is around 2,5m in radius, so it is best used again larger targets). The target area is determined the moment the arrow leaves the bowstring.

                    If no target is locked or the target is out of range, the arrows will instead fall down right above the player. The range is roughly 2/3 of the normal lock on range, but can be extended to further than that with the Arrow's Reach Talisman.

                    The type of ammunition shot is also used by the rain, meaning that this can quickly apply bleed, rot, poison, etc.

                    Most of the time it takes 3-4 volleys to apply the status effect to a boss (from personal experience - test subject being Radahn and the Magma Wyrm with a Longbow +13).

                      It's closer to the Dragonbarrow Fork, Minor Erdtree (I got confused with Caelid, Minor Erdtree thinking it was the one closer to Rotview Balcony)
                      On the cliffs there should be some large jars, if looking East from the marker, the left large jar has a tree root sticking out on that end, from there you can jump down to the cliff face, be careful it's a long drop!
                      Once you get down there, there should be a sleeping golem, it has an item near it be careful with that one too. And the spirit should appear on the same level.
