Elden Ring Storm Blade Guide

  • This is an Ash of War Skill, associated with the Ash of War: Storm Blade.
  • FP Cost: 10
  • Heavy Attack FP Cost: 6
  • This Skill not Chargeable
  • Usable on Swords (Colossal Weapons and Twinblades excepted).
  • While only dealing moderate damage, it can nevertheless be an effective early game ranged tool for melee-oriented builds
  • This Skill is unaffected by the base damage and scaling of your weapon. It has its own base damage and Strength and Dexterity scaling, which increases with upgrade level and can be modified with infusions.
  • Deals no additional damage if both the weapon and the projectile appear to connect.

NOTES: This Skill was changed with Patch 1.07 as follows:

  • Motion speed and range of the blade have been increased.
  • Damage detection to the weapon part has been added.
  • Delay between the end of various actions (like using items or attack animations) and being able to perform the skill has been reduced.

      Really good for my Banished Knight build. Since using their greatsword one handed with a shield feels pretty clunky (and two handing it gives you the fancy moveset) it feels nice to put this skill on my sword and give my Banished Knight access to a lore-accurate skill none of the others have. Makes it feel more unique and less like you're a sad cosplayer.

        As of current patch, Storm Blade is bugged and does no damage when the Ash of War version of Golden Vow is active but does still do damage when the spell version of Golden Vow is active.

          Cheese. It combos 2 or even three times in a row with a head shot. Absurd damage stacked on head shot means this can and has face tanked collosals. Imagine if actual sorceries did that? Nerf it into the ground, it was too strong even before the silly buff.

            I love this ability and it's one of few that wants you to invest in strength and dexterity. I hope they keep it in other games because it feels solid in both PvP and PvE. It also looks good when using it. As of right now I can confirm it is still bugged when Golden Vow has been applied to you, it literally makes you do 0 damage no matter what just like someone said in another comment.

            Anyways, I hope they keep using these animations to other games because it is very satisfying using this. =)

              DMG difference is only a few percent between the different physical affinities... unlike beast roar, which scales more like elemental infusion but with a dex based ranged AoW

                It deals extra damage when you hit with the blade now. Not by much but if the weapon has an infused status effect, you'll be able to proc the status effect.

                  Golden Vow/Rallying Standard makes this do 0 damage... it has been this way for multiple patches, up to and including 1.06.

                    Important to note that only the initial cast costs 10FP, you can keep spamming it afterwards with much shorter windup and only 6FP cost. Very good damage to FP efficiency and it's also ranged so you can attack from a distance.

                      Has anyone noticed that this skill does zero damage to some enemies like they're immune to it? No one seems to be talking about that anywhere on the internet.

                        One of the top 5 range ash of wars for a melee build imo. With golden vow or scholars armament you can easily start at 900 damage and stack, 1800, 2700 etc. Perfect ash for a melee build using their skill as range. Scale great with anything. Gargoyle Greatsword is great if not the best. Maybe most underrated late game ash and you get it very soon. Only down side is it doesn't stagger so don't get greedy but took down every main boss by spamming this skill.

                          Love this AoW, whats even more interesting is that it has the casting "sigil" effect that spells have where it flashes the insignia of the school of spells as you cast it. Implying that storm ashes were either intended to be their own school of magic or will be expanded on further in the future. I hope so cause I love the look and feel of the them all.

                            I'm starting to think Rallying Standard causes it to do no damage. I've been having several instances where it did literally nothing but blow wind into people's face. The only constant is that this only started happening ever since I got and use the Commander's Standard.

                              Any Ideas on how the game distinguishes the damage from this Ash of War? I know its not "slash", as it does way more damage against armored enemies than my Scimitar is able to perform.

                                Honestly one of the strongest while not being broken, Using it on my Lordsworn straight sword to get some more range on my attacks and it hits harder than a charged heavy. Pretty quick to use and has a okay-ish range. If you get the hang of that, great for roll catching and punishing mage builds since it's faster than most hard hitting sorceries.

                                  Does anyone know what scaling/damage options this applies to your weapon? I assume it lets you scale with Dex, but haven't been able to confirm.
