Elden Ring Whirl, O Flame! Guide

  • Fire Monk Incantation
  • Stamina Cost: 26
  • Deals fire damage
  • Creates a column of projectiles that pass through enemies dealing damage multiple times and hitting additional, lined up enemies.
  • The projectiles won't pass through walls. 
  • Has high damage potential against large or non-moving enemies, but comes at a high FP cost, and slow cast time.  It is available very early on though, and can be a fun alternate ranged option for Faith users
  • Note: Buffed in Patch 1.07 - FP cost reduced from 21 to 19, while it does more stamina damage against guarding enemies and is more likely to stagger enemies in general.

      While it may just seem like a less efficient Flame Sling, this has a handy niche of being useful in corridors and tight spaces where you won't be able to properly lob a fireball, or if you can corral a bunch of enemies into approaching you single file.

        I've been playing a pyro build and while I'm only at midgame (and this is all PvE), this spell grew on me. I disliked at first, but it's much better than something like flame sling/black flame at hitting mobile enemies and it seems the new 1.07 stagger can be handy too (will require more testing). Most importantly, this spell is a bit deceptive as it seems very short - but when you fully charge it, the range on it is actually really damn long, lingers and is very difficult for enemies to dodge. Use from distance.

        Sure, it's not gonna be my pick for DPS, or a lot of other situations, and it might be one of my least used equipped spells. But every time I do use it I'm really glad I have it.

          It's actually quite useful against shielded enemies as it damages past there guard, I used it on early game crucible Knights when I realised this spell is actually only partially blockable.

            You don't know how to use this spell. Using it from longer range rather than point-blank deals much more damage because to flames that end up further away from you linger and keep damaging. If you use this point-blank range it deals no damage yes.

            A decent alternative to Flame Sling to use against big bodies. Not bad but not great either.

              use this to make yourself look like a clown lmao. trash spell idk why they add a lot of fire spells that barely deals more damage than a +1 dagger's basic hit.

                Not bad for pve at all. Get more dmg out of one cast of this than flame sling on bigger enemies because it lingers/hits, with more range because it dosent lob. If youre a pure pyro like me it stays in pve rotation. Not a pvp oriented spell however.

                  Incredible to me that after having this spell suck in DS2 and DS3 they decide in elden ring to make it suck again.

                    It’s ****. No range, super telegraphed, locked in place. It’s the “Please back stab me for free spell”

                        Not a very good spell. There's just too many other better spells foe AOE like flames of frenzy, lightning storm or even any of the dragon breaths

                        • Not a terrible spell, very similar to the Fire Whip pyromancy, but I don't remember Fire Whip having anywhere near this range. It still kinda locks you in place but the column of fire can at least hit things a few times over. I've seen it proc at least four hits on a giant as the flames travel through it and it can hit things behind the initial target. The projectiles are so slow moving that they linger in front of the caster for a time, which I could see being potentially useful. This one doesn't really stay in my load out, however, it can be pretty useful in caverns and corridors though.
