This skill currently works on spells casted while its active, and it doesn't consume the buff, leading to you being able to boost all spell dmg by 60% for the duration of it

As of 3/7/2022, this weapon art is bugged. When used as intended, the weapon it applies to receive 100% damage bonus on the next attack. When you strike the enemy, the buff is consumed. However, the weapon art actually applies a global 100% bonus to your character's damage output. As a result, if you use an off hand weapon, a spell, an item, or anything that causes damage, it deals the bonus damage. Not only that, but the bonus STAYS until the duration ends naturally (like 10 seconds) or when you hit something with your main weapon. Essentially, for 15 FP, you can double your damage output from all sources for 10 seconds for as many shots as you can dish out, so long as you don't use the weapon its applied to. If you swap to two handing the off hand weapon however it appears to remove the buff.

It costs 0 FP when you put it on a weapon that you can't use.

Tested it with a Pike (requires STR of 20, character has 13) Can't be used properly even 2 handing it.

Casted Royal Knight's Resolve, consumed 0 FP and the Sheen applied to the weapon, the damage boost applied as well (Tested along with Hoarfrost stomp).

Guys, I need to know. My plan is to find this, throw it on a dagger in the off-hand, with Night and Flame in my main. *Will it double the laser?* If yes, I'm boutta steamroll Malenia.

you need to 2hand night and flame to use weaponart so not working

It does work

You don't need to 2hand night and flame to cast. The sequence is to two hand your offhand with RKR, cast, go back to dual wield and cast beam/flame.

Malenia can be stunlocked if you have enough stamina to keep casting the beam, but it's hard to land the first hit on her as she easily dodges. Easiest way is to bait her up against a wall and keep her locked there with summons if you want to go beam route. But RKR+Flame slash demolishes her.

So maybe it's different for certain weapons, but I absolutely can 2H my main hand and still have this buff work. God knows how glitched this ashes ability is. I don't think the way it's working is the way it's intended at all, but I definitely have it on my offhand dagger, switch to it, use the art, then switch back to my main, 2 handing it, and the weapon art indeed has the dmg boost. I do all my testing on the palace mobs because they're so abundant and I may as well get a bunch of runes while I'm testing builds and theory-crafting. This whole thing needs to be fixed tbh lol, like on one hand I'm glad to see the fat numbers, but on the other hand I highly doubt it's meant to be a lasting buff worth multiple hits lol

Using this ash of war on a weapon you don't meet the requirements for (Even when 2 handed) gives you the boost without consuming any FP
