        A couple of things I don't see here. Hyper armour aside, the putrid corpses that infest a beach at weeping peninsula were able to grab me AFTER I had cast the AoW and transformed into the thundercloud. I don't know if this is because they had target locked me, or whatever the mob version is, before I had cast it or if they can grab you regardless.
        Also, if you cast this AoW up close to a large enemy, like the giant octopus, it isn't one hit.
        The octopus prevents the thundercloud moving forward so gets hit multiple times pretty quickly and each hit does damage. I don't know if this triggers rotten winged sword because I saw counter intuitive results when I had it equipped.

          Best anti gank weapon imo. I’ve killed two people in one charged hit with this.

          Changing targets mid cloud form is also kind of OP.

          Also really poops on ROB if you have good poise

            Now, I know it says it’s a chargeable skill here, but I’ve also heard that Godfrey’s Icon does nothing for it; so is this talisman useful when charging the AoW?

              The damage immunity seems random.

              I'll he hitting with both magic and melee and they just randomly take damage using this aow.
              Hate how inconsistent elden ring is

                This skill seems to do insane damage with winged sword insignia and similar things vs. large enemies. Fully charging the skill at close range will have you hitting a big enemy several times in the air before the final attack since the thundercloud part of the attack actually has a hitbox, giving you the full successive attacks buff on the already crazy high damage final hit of a fully charged attack with this. I used this against Elden Beast and was able to do about 3000 damage with every skill usage with only 40 dex and rotten winged sword insignia. Literally made Elden Beast easier than Radagon on my first playthrough, beat it on my second try making it past Radagon.

                  If you can wield the weapon, this is great for chasing down people or gapclosing in PVP and during boss fights. Combine this with the hyper armor and high speeds, and you can even use this to escape fights.

                    this weapon art is absolute BALLER in pvp when you can land it LOL
                    if you using another weapon switch to this and track them
                    you're literally sending a warhead to their position

                    I've murdered countless hosts on accidet cause for one i didnt think it'd travel that far
                    situational asf but its GOOD

                      Very good against the Great Jar knights. Get in their face, let the lightning stagger them, then slam them to the ground. Spammed it, and got through all three without getting hit.
