      Its nice to have an incantation that provides magical damage, there arent that many, and pure magic damage is particularly strong on heavy armoured players in pvp, same with lightning

        What do you guys think of this incantation? on most occasions Agheel's fire does the same or more damage (like vs tree avatars) for less FP. If the enemy resists fire then you can just go with the scarlet rot breath instead.

          Been using this with the Marais Executioner’s Sword for pvp since both benefit from the magic cracked tear and scorpion charm, and have had a lot of success. Can easily one shot someone if their guard is down or they have low vigor

            Would this benefit from Ranni's Dark Moon magic resist shred? If so that would make it ideal for Int/Faith builds

              I like this incantation due to the damage, but its like setting off a flash bang if you play in a dark room…

                This is probably the best of the Dragon Spells for straight damage in pvp. Due to natural resistances and armor, MOST people will have lower magic defense than fire, as fire is attached to vigor, which everyone should have 60 of. While on the flip side, magic resistance is tied to Intelligence, and typically those who invest into the magics are squishier, so it should even out. When it comes to armor, magic is usually the second worst elemental stat they have as well, while fire is typically pretty good. The only reason to use Agheel's Flame over this is if you plan to make use of buffs/fire crystal tear in your physick, as Incanters are more likely to be using fire damage over magic (obviously), but in the odd scenario you decide to use a physick with magic damage attached, this will be extremely potent. Last but not least, it looks way cooler than normal fire.

                      Dunno why people hate on the glintstone breaths. I've tested them on a few normal (soldier of godrick, etc) enemies, and they consistently deal the most damage for me (not counting the scarlet rot/frost procs). And magic damage is actually great in this game (compared to other Souls games) as there are very few enemies, outside of Raya Lucaria, who are at all resistant to it. It also works with the magic-shrouding cracked tear, giving you +20% damage for 3 minutes. With a +10 dragon communion seal in one hand and a weapon with royal knight's resolve in the other hand, you'll literally melt bosses in one full cast.

                        What are some of you on about? This is among the best breaths especially against enemies with a weakness to magic.

                          This spell is very niche, as its base damage is lower compared to other breaths but it allows for access to magic damage for incantation users! Which is very good in some scenarions where the enemy is weak to magic.

                            From what I tested compared to the other breathes, this one is very bad. Even the basic ice breath deals more damage + does ice proc over 2 breathes, and rot breath is obviously the best.
