Takes a long time to charge and is easily canceled when you get staggered. You need a lot of poise if you want to consider making use of this ability.

For PVE, critical strike (backstab/riposte) into uncharged carian greatsword works fairly well. I put the ash on misericorde and used it against the knights in stormveil castle.

Do you need to level INT to do damage with this skill?

No, For using WA u only need base weapon requirements stats. the only thing u loss if u don't have points in Int while using this ash of war of weapon is Attack dmg.

What's the difference between this and Carian Grandeur? Is it that Grandeur can be charged one more level?
By Anonymous
#16445758
I think Greatsword is a horizontal slash while Grandeur is vertical.

The difference is Grandeur charges 1 more level.

Does "collosal weapons excepted" mean it can use them or cannot use them?

It's an Ash of War, sold by Rogier at stormveil castle/roundtable hold

Since before it, it says "usable on" then that means colossal weapons are the exception to this usability. So no, you can't.

it means it cannot be used on them, since it states what weapon types it for, then says it excepts colossal swords

If Rogier dies before you've bought this spell from him (Ranni's quest), is there any way to obtain this spell other than him?

Yeah, you'll get his bell. Give that to the Twin Maiden Husks in the Hold and you can buy his store inventory.

I can't 100% confirm. But anything available from him should be available at the twin sisters after you give her his bell.

Why would you ever want to replace that the best weapon ability?

Tested on a Lordsworn's Straight Sword +8 with 22 int - At fully charged, Carian Grandeur does 43 damage per FP - Carian Greatsword does 61 damage per FP - I don't know why you'd ever use Grandeur then.

Running out of FP is not nearly as big an issue as running out of HP because you let the fight continue longer by using weaker attacks.

I don’t see the value in doing the Standard version of this…it looks like without the Magic it’s just a regular sword?
By Anonymous

That's because the magic damage is affected by your intelligence. Using it without an intelligence build would basically be pointless unless you're facing a boss who's vulnerable to magic damage
