    • A good combination I use is the Roar Medallion and the Spear Medallion. Use the Lance and give it the War Cry Ash of War. Use it to trade with your opponents and deal an unholy amount of damage. The Spear Medallion only affects physical damage so it’s best to run primarily physical, but that means it can be hard countered by physical defense buffs. It’s give and take, more damage but a harder counter, or a fire infusion for just more consistent damage overall.

        Looking at the Hitboxes for the Dragon Communion spells, they do have a modifier for "Breath Attacks" but there is no special effect that increases Breath Attack damage. So From at one point planned to have these attacks be boosted by the Roar Medallion but it was excluded either for balance concerns or maybe it was just forgotten.

        • If i had a time machine I'd go back in time and tell the guy who wrote the description of this to change the word breath to shout just so 99% of comments on this page would vanish.

            Everyone is mentioning how it doesnt work with dragon breath attacks.... but... have you guys tried to see if the Torch weapon skills are boosted by it..? Thats pretty much a breath attack

            • Works really good on early str builds, exceptionally with axe talisman and spiked crystal tear damage buff will be big. However even description is false this talisman SHOUD increase damage of greyoll's roar,howl of shabriri and regal roar

              • Anonymous

                this talisman is pretty useless when you realize there are far better combinations that wont use it, and especially since they don't buff dragon communion spells. Starcaller Cry is also the only skill that people widely use that gets buffed by this, and you're better off with magic scorpion, shard of alexander, ritual sword and claw/axe talisman for either jump or charged attacks.

                  Is there a list of all spells, talismans, and abilities that work with the roar medallion? I wish this page was a little more fleshed out. Does it work with the earth shaker weapon art? does it stack with jar shard and red sword talismans? Howl of shabriri?

                  • Anonymous

                    increases breath attacks!....um but not dragon breath attacks! those are totally different and should never be confused with non dragon breath attacks! this isn't at all confusing!

                      I remember when I did my first playthrough and ended up doing dragon incantations and rocked this for so long. Turns out it has nothing to do with incantations. I understand Fromsoftware wanting to be esoteric with their storytelling, but cmon, they need to be straightforward in describing what weapons and talismans do.

                        The description needs to be changed or clarified in a better way if it does not increase Dragon Communion breath attacks. Or it should be buffed to do so.

                          Description says "Enhances roars and BREATH attacks." But doesn't work on LITERALLY DRAGON BREATH ATTACKS common From you can do better than this

                            Tested it and it works with the first half of Radahn's Greatswords weapon art! Very nice in pve for yelling entire rooms to death.

                              besides buffing war cry this thing is damn near useless, it needs to actually stack with dragon breaths and some other things.

                                If you stack this, with the highland axe buff, spiked cracked tear, and axe talisman, your charged war cry or barbaric roar heavy attacks get a whopping 56% increase.

                                  I've been trying a roar build since you can get so much good for it so early. Spiked cracked tear, war cry AOW, axe talisman, roar medallion, and highland axe are all in Limgrave, and I've been using the Greatsword from just over the Caelid line. Killed Nerijus in two hits, knocked Patches down with one, killed Alberich in three and he was helpless the whole time. Pretty fun! However, fighting Margit was miserable. When you can't do the charge attacks you have to go right back to the traditional ER colossal weapon play style of jumping like an Italian plumber.

                                    Which breath attacks does it enhances if not the DRAGON BREATH??? is there any other BREATH in the game? I know there are many roars but BREATHS???????????????

                                            Can confirm this doesnt raise the damage of Godfreys Axe WA "Regal Roar", Same damage with and without this talisman. It gets boosted by Shard of Alexander tho.

                                                so from my testing, theres only 6 things this has any effect on:
                                                -war cry: the heavy atttacks that are altered by the WA
                                                -barbaric roar: the heavy atttacks that are altered by the WA
                                                -the shriek of milos: the heavy attacks that are altered by the WA
                                                -beasts roar: the projectile
                                                -starcaller cry: the AoE damage
                                                -trolls roar: the AoE damage

                                                this does not work on:
                                                -any incantations: i had no increase for dragon incantations, and neither for howl of shabriri as one comment here claims. not even the aspect of the crucuble: breath.
                                                -the storm related ashes of war: a comment here claimed their damage increased, but i was not able to replicate that.
                                                -the axe of godfrey: neither the AoE (like starcaller cry) nor the changed heavy attack (like war cry) had an increase in damage. this one actually really bothers me, because it goes against what we saw among the things that actually do work.

                                                this means my conlcusion here would be:
                                                it works on any weapon art where the created blast deals damage; and on the heavy attacks following any weapon art that changes the heavy attack pattern. with the axe of godfrey being the exception to both.

                                                    Can confirm this strengthens the special R2s of War Cry, Barbaric Roar, Braggart's Roar and Shriek of Milos. It also boosts the damage of Troll's Roar (not sure about the followup R2), Beast's Roar and Howl of Shabriri. Based on my limited testing of Dragonfire and Greyoll's Roar, it does NOT work on dragon incantations. Need to test whether it empowers the skills of Steel-Wire Torch, Starscourge Greatsword or Axe of Godfrey.

                                                      In my testing this buffs R2 and charged R2 damage by a multiplicative 15% for War Cry and Barbaric Roar. An R2 with War Cry and this talisman active will do therefore do 46% more damage over a baseline, totally unbuffed R2. This if course stacks with the Axe Talisman and Spiked Cracked Tear on charged R2 attacks, which get a total buff of 72%/97%.

                                                      Other attacks are NOT buffed, including R1 and jump attacks. Only the modified R2 and charged R2 combos are affected.

                                                          • I've been wearing this for my entire dragon build playthrough and never thought to check the damage with it off... Probably the most poor and misleading item description in any fromsoft game yet.

                                                              Idea for a build: Two Highlander axes, which strengthen roars, one with War Cry, the other with Beast's Roar, and this medallion. War Cry to increase your damage with your dual-wielded axes, and then punishing with a beefed up Beast's Roar if the enemy tries to escape. Would be a fun barbarian build.

                                                                Attacks this improves include all the storm weapon abilities. On a +3 Banished Knight GS the Storm Blade attack went from 166 to 206. I assume this means it improves all "wind" special effect abilities, which includes the beast roar special effect, and roughly can be seen from all war cries. Might improve vacuum slice and storm wall.

It doesn't increase it either lol, kept doing 239 damage for me on the banished knight outside the Cathedral of dragon communion.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

Secondly, the point of testing things like this is to find an answer. don't be a jerk because someone else got something different from you it's part of the process. If their wrong let them know, but realize you could be wrong too.

                                                                      For my test I used the giant west of the Church of Elleh and Ekzykes's Decay, I timed my attack to hit while the giant stands fully upright for a few seconds after spotting you. This is minimize multi hits.

                                                                      without the medallion I did exactly 400 dmg
                                                                      with the medallion it did 400 dmg

                                                                      I made sure to check the dmg number before scalet rot started dealing dmg

                                                                      I also noticed that when it critical hitted the giant (the head/eyes of the giant) the attack dealt 401 then immediately after landing 200 more. so that may be the discrepancy some are having with their tests besides the attack multihitting.

                                                                      Equipment/status:

                                                                          • Dragon "Breath" spells are incantations from the dragon communion cult, so if you want to get extra buff on those attacks, you need another talisman, called Flock's Canvas Talisman.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • I did some testing on the giant directly outside of the Third Church of Marika. I can confirm that this talisman does NOT work with dragon incantations. 1 tick of damage from glintstone breath did 430 damage with or without the talisman equipped.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                      • breath attacks were going up by about 300-400 dmg just from using the roar talisman with 55 faith 45 arcane. idk what all these anonymous comments claiming it doesn't work are about... if you 1 shot the enemy with it it's gonna look like the same amount cuz you're doing the enemies max hp.... you need to test it on something you ARE NOT ONE SHOTTING.

                                                                                        • Anonymous
