Creates shadow that lures the aggression of foes of human build
Shadow Bait is an Incantation in Elden Ring. Shadow Bait spell casts a shadow that serves as a distraction to unfocus your enemies.
Incantation of the Two Fingers' servants, who once served as the
assassins of the Roundtable Hold.
Creates a pale gold shadow before the caster, luring foes of human
build and attracting their aggression.
This incantation can be cast while in motion or crouching, and
will still affect foes that are already in a combat state.
It is said that those beguiled by the shadow see within it a hated

If only this made a laughing sound like Familiar's Prank does in Demon's Souls.
As of 1.07, works in a similar fashion to Mohg/Margit shackles in Catacomb Dungeons. Casting this anywhere will also activate traps within the dungeon.
Works well on unaware opponents. Clumps them up for nice and easy AoE spell massacre.
Bamboozles for the fool-zles!
would've been cool if this and Darkness messed with the targeting of other players. Like this forcing targeting in pvp to the Shadow until broken or something, would kinda mess with casters. Darkness could prevent targeting as it does for mobs. Sadly they do nothing. Even if they were a lot worse than my "from the top of my head"-suggestion it'd still be fun, and someone out there would find a way to make a weird invasion build from it. Breaking their targeting momentarily to get just the slightest window needed to do some stupid OP status effect proc or w/e. The extensive toolkit of weird stuff you can do is what i really enjoy with these games. its a shame when they leave stuff like this that has potential to be completely useless in pvp.
This can lure omen into fighting each other. Certainly helps in the sewer.
Does it not work on bosses bc I’ve tried it on Radagon and it does nothing, and I’m pretty damn sure he’s of human build, so pretty unsure about the spell,I’ve tried when I first get in the arena, after I’ve been fighting him for a min, or after I use a spirits ash, nothing works, I’m just trying to see if there’s a way to put Radagon in a time loop of sorts
It doesn't work with Bell Bearing Hunter. Bug?
Sadly does not work as an invader.
Can this be used in invasions to attract enemies to the host?
Does it have any effect in pvp? Like forcing the opponent to switch the locked target or someting? Or is it just a fancy mockery?
this is bait lol
When I got to the location there wasn't any loot on the corpse, I've never been there and I've obviously never picked it up
Casting time is too long. If only it shorter.
Shadow Bolt, oh wait... It's just a Bait. :C
Equip a cerulean dagger talisman and you can literraly infinitely stunlock so many pve enemies by constantly using shadow bait → backstab→ shadow bait → repeat. Hell, with stun aoe like earthshaker / flame of the redmanes you can def stunlock huge groups as well. Crazy good incantation.
Probably one of the best PvE spells, control and distraction for casters is amazing. Drop one or two of these into a pack and throw in your big AoE/high damage spells.
This is bait
Haven't seen anyone else mention it but it has uses for farming human enemies obviously, I am sure people are aware of the farming method in the Mohgwyn Dynasty underground area, specifically the Palace Approach Ledge-Road site of grace where people shoot the large bird and kill many of the little Albinaurics. If you toss this spell out to the middle of them they will all swarm on it and then you can knock them out all at once with a large AOE(I use Cannon of Haima).
Some human enemies are quite stupid as well and will follow it off a ledge to their deaths.
How does this work in pvp? Does it just not work at all?
Helpful with commander Niall, packs in Crumbling Farum Azula, packs in Sewers under Capital (where you find the spell), overall very good utility PvE spell, not very cheesy, just balanced.
used few times and enemies don't do anything continuing to aggro me.
Has some niche uses.
Works on big knights, fat ogres, fire monk commanders, etc. haven't tested on human "bosses" yet.
Very short duration, but can give some breathing space in combat, creating an opening for long cast spells in or easy backstabs.
For example, with the Assassin's Cerulean Dagger trinket equipped, you can cast this, then backstab, ad nauseam til the enemy dies, recovering the cost of the spell with each backstab.
From the Underground Roadside Grace under the capital.
Head down the ladder, keep on the upper level and go through a doorway guarded by an imp throwing knives.
The spell is guarded by a big mutated creature.
where to get?
