      In a game that has katanas that shoot laser beams, staves that creates gravity wells, and the ability to summon F*CKING METEOR SHOWERS….. you decided to throw rocks. I can respect that.

        Shreds enemy stance and puts them on their knees. I had Mohg kneel to me twice in his fight. At this point I don't care about the damage, stance breaking by itself is a huge incentive to use this incantation.

          wish it had slight tracking maybe a bit more aoe splash otherwise solid. great in pve and decent in pvp if you learn to free aim it

            Does anyone have any tips for hitting enemies at long distance with manual aim consistently? I killed all the silver tears around the giant skeleton on the throne at night's sacred ground before the chest holding the fingerslayer blade from up on the cliff where the ancestral woods grace checkpoint is. But I had to use maybe six cerulean flasks to do it, I needed a lot of cast to find the range for each group and it helped that they move towards where the rocks land then get hit by those following. Unlike arrows shot from a bow far out of its range with manual aim that do no damage when they hit their target, the rocks were killing the silver tears just as effectively from that big a difference in elevation and distance as they were when target locked up close. But I can't find any consistent way, like lining up my helm with landmarks to hit what I'm aiming at without using a load of FP to find my range first, so I'm hoping someone here will have more experience and ideas how to best go about this.

              Even after using it for a good while and knowing its a stunning incantation for shredding poise, stamina and for breaking even a strong enemy's guard leaving them open to a critical hit and knowing how versatile it is it still isn't easy to recommend this because the hassle of getting six deathroot might outweigh its value to a lot of players who haven't seen what it can do.

              I wouldn't say this part anywhere else, but I think everyone who already has it will know. I messed up some npc quests by not reading the steps I needed to follow, after that I'm not sure I got to the boss this incantation surprised me with the most at the intended level because of my determination not to bollocks up doing what I needed to get the dung puppet summons. Once I had him squared away I followed Ranni's quest to the letter and got to Astel naturalborn of the void at the grand cloister and before anyone says I was over levelled the baleful shadow was killing me in three fast hits until I got my timing right.

              I summoned dung as soon as I was in the boss room and promptly got knocked flat on my arse by Astel's beam attack for half my health bar, it was the only hit it landed on me. Dung was tanking the hits like a champion and kept getting up for more, I was able to keep at a safer distance and target the weak spot of the boss's head with stone of gurranq I don't think anyone on Astel's wiki would believe me but between that and dung it destroyed him, I only had to use one crimson flask from that first hit. Exactly the same tactic worked to kill the version of Astel in yelough anix tunnels at consecrated snowfield later as well but that one did land plenty of hits, but again this incantation and dung killed it first time. I thought it was worth saying here in case anyone who already has it maybe hasn't thought to try it on those two bosses.

              • Not sure if this is already known, but if you land a stone indirectly ing pvp, the stagger is enough to have a guaranteed followup r1 for atleast greataxe and below at max cast speed

                  I roleplay as Ifan Ben-Mezd from Divinity Original Sin 2 with this OP incantation and im having a blast! I posted the build on my yt page if anyone wants to check it

                    I made a comment on 26th July 09:02, I wouldn't normally go on and on about the same thing but the enemies involved are strong contenders for the most c**tish in the whole game so if anyone found a way to make dealing with them a little easier I'd want to know about it.

                    I said how enough hits from this will knock the T-Rex dogs down and open to a critical hit in my previous comment. It does the exact same thing to those giant crow f**kers as well, but it's not as straight forward with the crows as it is with the dogs because of how quickly they can close the distance between them and you, so it's not going to make them an easy kill but it does make them an easier kill.

                    Bearing in mind this is only available after giving Gurranq six deathroots as well as the places and enemies that need to be dealt with to get them, it is easier to avoid the T-Rex dogs and giant crows than it is to get this incantation just for an advantage in dealing with those two enemy types, but seeing as most reading up about this incantation are likely to have already been given it by Guranq I thought it was worth making a comment about this being good for those two specific enemies.

                      This thing has really surprised and impressed me. I haven't used any of the incantations given as rewards for the deathroot. I've been wanting the perfumer Trisha sprit ashes for a while but its a nasty boss fight with her buffing a misbegotten leonine warrior. This incantation made them both my b***hes, summoned raya lucaria soldier ash as soon as I crossed the fog then cast this repeatedly at the misbegotten. It really f***ed it up, and Trisha can't last long on her own.

                      That's not all either two or three hits will put the T-Rex dogs at mountaintop of the giants down and open for a critical hit, I really like this incantation.

                        Either needs a bigger hitbox on rock or faster travel time (even regular enemies can walk past it...) as is the damage to fp is quiet nice, also deals physical/poise damage, oh and deals enough poise damage in pvp to interrupt even such high hyper armor skills as waterfowl dance of Malenia katana...

                          I love this one, it's really fun to free-aim it into far away enemies or bonk shielded knights. Also the implication with clawmark str scaling that this is less of a "spell" and more just that you're such a chonky quasi-werewolf that you can hurl random boulders with ease.

                          • Considering that this seems to be the incantation equivalent of Rock Sling, it certainly doesn't deal much poise damage and its range/targeting ability just sucks. That said, it DOES still work quite well for many things.

                              this spell ****ing destroys rennala if you rush to get it before fighting her. it's so funny just bonking her on the head with a giant rock.

                                Great incantation to open up with on larger enemies in PVE because it deals massive poise damage. With radagon's icon equipped, chain this into black flame ritual, and you should have lots of room to attack.

                                  been messing around with this and found that it might be one of the incants most benefited by max cast speed, having the radagon icon and offhand azur’s staff gives a massive decrease to the cast time of both the initial rock throw and the follow up chained ones as well, and I suggest that anyone using this either for pvp or pve get to max cast speed to use this as it helps a ton

                                    This is not the first move in my arsenal, but it's often my last. Every enemy which has beaten me to the point I bring out the rocks embodies rigor mortis.

                                      The stun from the rock allow a true combo with catch flame, bestial sling and honed bolt, its really good with chain casted honed bolt, throw a lot of people of guard, also does over 133 poise damage, great against poise stacker since it force them to roll into you so you can cast chain casted catch flame or bestial sling to catch their roll.

                                        Does Radagon Icon make ya chuck Rocks faster? Trying it out and I FEEL it's a bit faster using the Radagon Icon but wanted to know if there was anyone who crunched some numbers on this?

                                        • it really doesn't matter too much as long as you play really smart with it, but this thing could really use a buff to give it even the slightest amount of tracking to help with actually hitting some enemies that are even slightly slow-walking sideways so it doesn't fly over their shoulder and miss completely. even with it's funkiness, this is easily my favorite spell in the game, and my most utilized in both pve and pvp.

                                            At this stage it is completely outclassed by lightning spear in every way. Travel speed, cast speed, and damage even on the uncharged cast. Still, nothing like throwing a big ass Boulder at your enemies. This should probably do a ton of stagger damage against bosses instead of getting straight damage buffs.

                                              it's decent but that's about it. Early it's good vs most regular enemies, but vs late game bosses or tougher enemies it's suboptimal even with fully optimized build for bestial incantations.

                                                Almost impossible to hit in PvP. Occasionally misses stationary enemies in PvE. Still manages to be one of the most fun incantations to use.

If your sacred seal scales off of faith alone, it's going to increase damage. If it scales of int/faith/arcane all of those will increase damage too. I increased my incantation damage much more with a Flock's Canvas Talisman than I did with just increasing my faith with a Two fingers heirloom. Wacky huh?!)

                                                      Excellent for using without target lock..it may take practice, but it's range is superb, bulkiness covers a decent area while flying and landing.
                                                      Target lock has you throw overhead and the rock goes downward after a short distance, hitting the ground if theyre just a bit out of it's reach.
                                                      Ive practiced at Castle Sol near the boss gate, free throwing these at the wolves and big Pheasant and the thing does not dissappear till it hits something solid, far far away.

                                                        Getting out-traded? Throw a rock at them and make them back off.

                                                        There are almost no scenarios in which throwing a rock at your opponent is a bad idea.

The tracking can be a little wonky because you cast it from above your head so it has a tendency to miss, but it staggers like a mofo. Great to use with mimic tears ash it's enough to make anyone start singing the cross fire commercial music. Stone the nobles!

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

"Death of the Demigods" aka wielder of the rune of death...and we fight the "beast clergyman" before officially fighting Maliketh. Gurranq eats deathroot because he has a hunger for death--so that none other than he can hold the power of death to prevent something like the night of black blades from happening again...

                                                                                              Oh and it staggers like a MOFO. Legit can just chill back and stone shiz to death if you want to. Beat a few harder bosses just doing this. 10/10 would stone like a peasant again.

Cheap, decent damage, fairly quick, good poise damage. Unless you are fighting that boulder puncher this works good against mostly everything.

Wish it were a little bit faster to fall in line with the rest of the "you cast spell? You no get spell! Me throw rock!" theme bestial spells have going. Damage is not bad and deals immense poise damage. Impossible to land on anyone with half a brain that isn't stuck in an animation. With 13 faith, 30 strength and a +25 Bestial mark this deals around 500 ish damage and staggers practically anyone, regardless of their poise. Getting hit by it a few times will stun them. Worth noting this spell is VERY limited by the humongous stamina cost to perform it, so even though it can be chained in theory you never will be able to.
