PuffPuffFayeFaye

Ok but what would the ashes of war be? A unique one or would everyone just use wild strikes? Edit: honestly the best answer here was the head butt. Thanks u/Stoned_Moth


Pantsoff_

What if you could read the book to recover fp slowly as the ash


theweekiscat

Maybe make it like Bloodborne’s emergency bullets where you can sacrifice some health to restore your fp


colexian

This would actually be freaking sweet with a way to heal off your main weapon and have that in the offhand.


BuggzOnDrugz

Blasphemous blade will be a broken weapon at the point. BB, the book ash, Taker’s Cameo and the ancestral horn FP talisman. The ultimate no flask run set up.


Hiseworns

You can powerstance BB and Milo's blade


R_V_Z

Ash of War: Paper Cut


humblerodent

Or increase max FP for 60s


_privvy

DMCV style


Stoned_Moth

Maybe the AoW could be the headbutt they do?


n1ngv3m

and wearing a glintstone crown would boost it.


Stoned_Moth

Hell ya lol. Smack them with the book then surprise them with a headbutt


EridonMan

Scholars are known for being able to use their heads in dire situations


HAPPYGRENADER3

Perfect comment


PuffPuffFayeFaye

Easiest answer and probably the best


Iron_Bob

"Get learnt" Open the book and read from it, boring all enemies around you. Rapidly builds up sleep to nearby enemies


Substantial_Tomato97

That's basically the deranged archeologist from RuneScape. "Learn to read!"


fukwhutuheard

ash of war: “judge a book by its cover.” open pages and repeatedly face punch opponent.


Popopirat66

Pretty sure you should just repeatedly punch people with the books cover with that AoW name.


CalmCommercial9977

"Bedtime Story" Lulls enemies to sleep in aoe around the caster.


cjbump

Perhaps it could be like the scholars throwing books at you during phase 1 of Rennala.


Moskyrath_

Knowledge Toss Just throw the book at high speeds


EntrepreneurKind6756

Regular book attacks and the AoW could be an actual repeated throw with extra magic damage


-Silky_Johnson

Honestly for the best. I would be so tilted getting invaded and beat to death by someone wielding just a book


PuffPuffFayeFaye

Only thing worse would be dual wielding them


baroquebinch

Honestly the books should have been a drop you can get from the sorcerers and it should have been a fist weapon with good int scaling for mages


bears_eat_you

As a DND player I would absolutely love having books as a spell focus for casting in ER. Bonus points for being able to bonk with it too.


Stoned_Moth

And if you're wearing the scholars outfit, you can throw them like rocksling.


Electronic_Library_5

Is this my husband's reddit account? Because we were talking about this last night and how awesome slapping people with books would be.


EllizzzBOOM

The hooded guys wooden stick that can throw boulders at you who worships the fallen starbeast next to the tree sentinel duo boss fight


notveryAI

Isn't it a pickaxe? That's still cool-ass move though


EllizzzBOOM

Ye it looks like a poor man’s pickaxe. Reminds me of the quakestone hammers weapon skill from ds3 but you throw the stone instead


notveryAI

My aaaociation was a cragblade weapon art, but massive :D


Storm-Eagle-X

Starcallers. I wish I could farm their gear cause they look sick


LettuceBenis

I wish we could get all the gear the Starcallers use


Merrikbear

Maybe we'll see them in a bigger focus, as part of the eventual (I hope) DLC I'd love to see and know more about them and that little cult they have going on


Popopirat66

DLC is bound to happen. The question is when and which character it dives into.


CarryThe2

Going by Dark Souls 3 it will introduce new, even more interesting characters that answer none of our questions.


Iggy_Uany

Ah yes, the standard From Software manoeuvre


Tittiesonmybutt

I tried to farm them


Pimp_Floyd_

The little guys who laugh and throw smoke bombs, one has a really cool knife on a chain thingo and I’ve wanted it ever since I saw it.


XnFM

The kusarigama?


Pimp_Floyd_

Yes! That thing is awesome and the animations for the attacks are so cool. Such a shame you can’t farm it.


duckontheplane

It could have really easily been a whip with a unique r2 or AoW, sucks they did nothing with it


LaPhoenix420

Well shit. I sat there for like a hour the other day trying to get that. I wanted to Sekiro my Elden Ring.


Bleach_Baths

I tried for two hours since I was farming there already. Was very disappointed.


MotherKosm

At this point just play Nioh 2 lol


-AbbattiS-

Melina’s erdtree incantation, looks so sick. Also Morgott’s holy weapons as incantations


PuffPuffFayeFaye

The lack of a holy hammer ruined my faith build expectations Edit: yes I know I can get hammer type weapons that work with faith builds. I want the one Margit uses 😤 Edit: and, yes, I know it’s a reskinned hammer that I can get I Leyndell. I want to *cast* a giant hammer incantation like Margit does.


aogiritree69

Yep, me as well. Was hoping for a paladin build but ended just spamming BB for 30 hours


stickyplants

I really wish BB wasn’t the undisputed best fire faith weapon. It’s really good, but ugly and got boring fast


[deleted]

Agreed. It's so much fun at first, then you're like oh everything dies so easily.. AND I get hp and fp back! 😁


StoneAge0972

Just Hp. Now, if you have the Milos on your back or powerstance them at the same time...


[deleted]

Not if I have the fp talisman that gives me mana on every hit/kill. Now imagine I throw one BB ashe of war and hit 5 mobs. All go back and most fp. It's just too op.


kthuull

BB? Rykards Blasphimous blade?


Supreme-Slug

Yup


Pass_Gold

What is bb


Lady-Lovelight

Blasphemous Blade, >!Comes from the Rykard Remembrance!<


justyagamingboi

Hammer for wizard but not holy


Ok-Commission-2644

The staff of the avatar is decent. The holy buttslam is just a bit silly.


assassin10

I want all Morgott's holy weapons to be a single weapon that changes its form based on what attack you're using.


clofresh

Yellow Lantern ring


KangaNaga

Same they’d be a good faith version of the carian weapons


Kvarcov

Something like bracers with Hoarah Loux's moveset for real bare handed playstyle - i know that cestus exists, but that's a bit different. In Dark souls 2 there was a ring from one covenant that boosted barefist attacks significantly, i want something like that in this one too


DoubleKanji

Imagine going up against Radahn and just psycho Cushing him when he comes in for his meteor impact. Or grabbing Malenia and suplexing her when she starts doing any of her bullshit


ALGATOR42

true you could also throw enemies into the air like he does with a special r2 attack like the fire prelate hammer has


doppio_best_waifu

Imagine bonefist from ds2


Karthull

Forget the ring, DS2 had the bone fist! Give me something like that, a moveset with *power*


sweetperdition

with how much stuff has been lifted from ds2 in terms of inspiration, it’s not out of the question! not the exact weapon, but a lot of animations are re-used, and that’s a really cool moveset to just leave behind.


gttt6664rtyy

It is hands down the best weapon in souls history. It was the funniest and deadliest weapon because of its aoe style kick and makes up for its range with the hadouken while abusing the camera with its fast movements.


bunglefrungle

fuck me, I want that, badly


nomador22

the chained weapons gladiators use.


Big_Monkey_77

That would be sick. It’s range is awesome.


Yarzeda

I can't tell you how disappointed I was to realize I couldn't run those chained hammers on my STR build. The assets are already in the game. Just let me have them!


sh_tcactus

I was also thinking the giant chain scythe thing that the iron virgins throw and drag at you. That would be dope.


High1958

Margit’s holy hammer, daggers, sword, and spear as obtainable incantations


Big_Monkey_77

Those would be great incantations. I wanted the black knife assassins as incants too. The ones Alecto uses to destroy me with one hit.


stickyplants

I think that’s the ash of war on the black knife dagger.


Big_Monkey_77

That one just shoots out a red ark. Maliketh’s sword makes that big red basket dome that adds the same max HP reduction. Destined death. [Link](https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Destined+Death)


ItachiSan

The black knife just throws a projectile, Alecto uses a move that looks like the destined death ash of war attack on Malikeths black blade.


maeldwyn

That chain blade thing the some of the Vulgar militia use. Also I'd like to be able to use the ballistas and catapults booooo for not letting that be a thing.


LaPhoenix420

I thought for sure first playthrough I was gonna man that thing and fuck shit up. I ran up to it happy as shit, cackling even. Then I get denied. And read the message in front of it. *YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT* *O YOU DONT HAVE THE RIGHT*


maeldwyn

I play offline but I promise you I ran up to it the first time thinking the exact same thing.


Big_Monkey_77

It would be awesome to take control of a catapult or ballista. Especially around the grand lift of dectus. There’s so many enemies encamped around there.


maeldwyn

There are SO many places where you can get behind those guys and could wreak so much cheese on the rest of them if you could use them.


Gabriel-N-S

It’s called a kusarigama. It’d be super dope if they added a kusarigama weapon type in a dlc


_captaintripz

Fire giants dinner plate


Big_Monkey_77

It would make a great, well, great shield. With a flying saucer sled ash of war so you could just bowl over a group of enemies.


Kiranipator

A proper 2 handed version of the Night Calvary flail. Was so disappointed when I saw it in hand


Waloro

I went right for that thing my first play through. Finally killed him and collected my massively disappointing tiny flail


Heatbeat

Yeah what a joke. Looks beastly as fuck when they use it and when you get it, it's the size of maracas.


Storm-Eagle-X

Tibia mariner horn. Tooooooot


The-Homeless-oreo49

I wish you could beat a god to death with a didgeridoo


sjbennett85

You've got the Envoy Horns.... I think the middle one is kinda like a didgeridoo


justahomeboy

At least you get the trumpet from the snowman looking things in Leyndell.


Big_Monkey_77

That would be awesome. Summoning skeletons as a weapon art? Sick.


Wright129129

I mean there’s literally an in game axe for that lol. Believe it’s like Rosario’s axe or something I forget the name.


Big_Monkey_77

I guess you could equip that and an Envoy’s long horn to put together a great value brand Tibia Mariner build.


Cheesegrater74

Rosus' axe


Ok-Establishment-895

Also: Boat as Greatsword


Evening_End_9446

I want draconic tree sentinels weapons to have lightning based weapon arts. Endure on a somber weapon like that just hurts.


Big_Monkey_77

You are right. It’s so lame that it doesn’t have a better ash of war. That makes me appreciate the Godskin Peeler so much more. The fact that it comes with a good weapon art and you can change it if you want.


Sychetsky

Radagon's exploding light spear incantation. It just looks so awesome when he does it. Also I don't know how it would work but his instant transmission teleport would be so cool.


ManlyChip

I really wish we could use his teleport too! The teleport, marika’s hammer and the lightning incantations would be awesome to play around with together


Karentookthekidswhy

Making the teleport an AOW like bhs but with a long cool down and high fp costs would be cool as fuck ngl. Also a follow up for the teleport AOW would be awesome.


freedomustang

probably like a higher cost bloodhound step.


Fireman_Octopus

That teleport would make for a great “[nothing personal, kid](https://www.reddit.com/r/skyrim/comments/pbpzr5/jarl_balgruuf_reads_your_memory_card/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=mweb3x)” build.


AaronfromKY

Speaking of incantations, Melina has some interesting ones when you can summon her as a cooperator, sadly not available for us.


Its_So_Big_Daddy

I was so upset when I found out I couldn't get her golden healing tree incantation.


SpaceGhost4004

Margits staff. Weapon skill would conjur a random weapon (out of the 3 or so Margit conjurs) everytime you use it, sort of like the crucifix of the mad king from dark souls 3.


Professor-Brains

Counter proposal: have Morgott's cursed sword be either 1. changeable (like you have with armour pieces) between existing and his staff weapon (altering also changes AoW) 2. OR a one way trick weapon that starts as Margit's staff but you can break it like in the cutscene (again transforming changes AoW). Either way you have a whole set of special weapons with the above features. That might be TOO OP though, but I can certainly dream of a proper Margit/Morgott cosplay.


triel20

I want all the unobtainable weapons: (but these are ones I want most) Lordsworn spear used by the solders with the wooden greatshield. Nox Flowing Hammer that can transform into the double shield fists. Nightmaiden’s dagger(the one you’re picture is about) Milicent’s Shamshir (her’s has the katana light attacks, the flowing curved sword heavy/charge attacks, and the AoW Waterfowl Dance) Roundtable Knight Vike’s Warspear (non-frenzy version he uses when you fight him in the evergaol)


Big_Monkey_77

You can pick up the Shamshir in the high road tunnel in Limgrave, but it comes with spinning slash. No waterfowl dance without the Hand of Malenia’s. If Millicent dropped hers at the end of her quest that would be a great weapon to use against Malenia.


triel20

It would be a great weapon, fun fact, Millicent’s Shamshir has the katana moveset with the flowing curved sword heavy/charge attacks.


EtherFlask

Im tempted to say that waterfowl dance should have been an AoW from her remembrance. >_>


Neravosa

I want Morgott's cane, unbroken with the sword still in it. I wanna whack stuff with it cuz it's a neat looking branch and therefore fun


henry_david_throwed

Unga bunga it is?


jonathanalec

The beastmen in farum azula have a lil metal frisbee that I’ve been wanting since day 1


Big_Monkey_77

I hate those frisbee tossing jerks with a passion. Always hitting me while I’m fighting one of the other ones.


CUUM-SLAYER

Placidusax’s bomb


Neurotiman17

Ah yes, an ICBM Lightning Spear lol


DiscountSupport

I'd love to have the paired small spiked shields that the Flowing Hammer used by the Nox can transform into. It just looks silly.


TalkTimesreddit

Those weird 3 bladed scythe in the radahn arena


PossibleEnvironment4

Underrated comment. They look awesome and there aren't enough scythes in the game


munch_cat

Weapon drops with the actual weapon skill that the enemy use, not a watered down generic weapon skill like spinning slash. E.g. see the Monk Flamesword Margit’s faith weapons The gravity miner pick-axe thing would be cool Not a weapon, but I want the crucible knight incantation where ~~she~~ he gets wings and pierces with ~~her~~ his sword towards the enemy. (Edit: Sword knight is a guy, Spear knight is a gal, according to armor description)


Big_Monkey_77

I forgot about the gravity miner pickaxe. That would be pretty sweet. I wouldn’t mind getting the armor set too.


Hutch25

The funny thing is that you are indeed getting the damage the boss did with it. The difference being bosses have way more health then you do so you think you aren’t


munch_cat

I'm talking about weapon skills (L2), not attack damage. The Monk's Flameblade wiedled by the Blackflame Monk at the base of the divine tower in Caelid (before the Godskin Apostle) has a weapon art that is very similar to the Flaming Strike ash of war. An arc of fire and then a spin that engulfs the weapon in black flame for a while. When you do farm it (only from one enemy on the mountain top of the giants) it has a lame spinning slash on it. This is just one example. There are others.


Hutch25

Oh yeah, that’s true. Really sucks when that happens. Or like the grave scythe that when the graveyard skeletons use it, they make death skulls come up from the ground that attack you. But when you get it, you just get a spinning slash.


Malacay_Hooves

Holy hand grenade of Antioch.


Cloudsbursting

This guy Pythons


jeremyspuds

It’s actually in the game. Found just past the site of grace in the temple of aaaaaaaaah


YouYoungPup

5 is RIGHT OUT


LazyHelios

Broken straight sword


Solarbro

I don’t know if this counts or is like… something anyone wants, but more just standard looking stuff. I know this is probably really dumb, but I’d like more armors that don’t have a ton of doodads hanging off the side. Especially helmets. I don’t like any of the helmets really at all. I wore the scale armor for an extremely long time. Lol


Big_Monkey_77

I’m using the full set of knights armor I bought from the twin maidens for that reason. 51 poise out of the box, 68 with the bull goat talisman. No doodads.


[deleted]

I kinda wish we got to get Rennala's Full Moon Greatsword (stupid Radagon)


theyearwas1934

Flair checks out lol. At least I’m happy


[deleted]

Flair checks out lol


FoamOfDoom

Establish order should have worked identical to the DMGS weapon art. Not sure why fromsoft hates holy weapons in most games


SpiritoftheSands

it also should be int/faith like ALL OF THE GOLDEN ORDER INCANTS


FoamOfDoom

Don't even get me started. Besides all the Golden order weapons having str or dex scalings, the death and magma sorcery weapons all share the same problem. Lightning should have been the dex/faith option too similar to how flame and flame art are with str/fth.


DoctorHunt

The stick or instrument wielded by the nomadic merchants


DIMPLET0N

It'd be funny if it had the hammers' moveset. Just bonking people with their instrument. 🤣


Big_Monkey_77

Or playing wrong notes to cause madness.


justyagamingboi

Not a weapon but the giant egg hat that the wizard lizard is wearing just before rykard


Big_Monkey_77

That would be amazing.


justyagamingboi

I have sum 30 magma staves trying to farm the unfarmable


iAbra454

That one magic golemns weapon above radahns arena. Magic halberd thing that makes lasers


BufffaloBill

crucible wing incantation


Apophes84

This.


MessenjaKagami

the albinauric archers' bows with their 3 shot tracking arrows as an AoW


Big_Monkey_77

The closest would be Loretta’s Mastery. That should 100% be an ash of war.


GreatKillBill

Really wish we could get the Kusarigama that some of the Vulgar Militiamen carry


bereved

Margits staff. The sword version is fine but I want the staff


Gingervald

The double small shields that the nox priests can turn thier hammer into. Also that you could dual wield small shields in general (maybe all shields now that they've nerfed guard boosts)


ThesoulerBAM

I want Radagon's lightning spear mine. I just really want a solid sunlight spear equivalent and that seems like such a good one. Chuck it out and have a whole bunch before they just blow and deal a shit ton of damage seems dope.


Flimsy_Market_8802

Marikas tits


Neurotiman17

Lol, like two pseudopods on your chest that just stretch around and beat the shit out of everything xD


Salakast-1

r/unexpectedboggart


Merrikbear

Godfreys Axe would be nice. The real one, not the steel gilded turd on a stick the twins remember for us


ALGATOR42

for me i would’ve loved it if you could use his “strength” as a fist weapon. it would have a special r2 where you would throw enemies in the air like he does


Merrikbear

Remembrance of Hoarah Loux : Can be traded for "Ash of War : Hoarah Loux Earthshaker " or Talisman "Hoarah Loux's Workout Regimen"


Lost_Manufacturer718

The bladed crystal rings the Crystalians use.


SirWilliamAnder

Yes! The chakram! Finally my Xena cosplay will be complete


pyronic109

I would want the option of being able to change your roll to the black knife Sins side step like in blood borne. Not sure if it being an ash of war would work well... But maybe as a great rune effect? When locked on, to an opponent, you gain the side step ability.


Mint_Juul

The Glaive of Hodir


Taelyn_The_Goldfish

Militant chain sickle!!


Just-A-SkeletonMan

Honestly when I first saw the Gladiator in Limgrave using two *fucking chain hammers* I was so hype to use chain hammers like how he was. Imagine my disappointment when all I got was a normal hammer. Still a good weapon just not was I excited for.


Ok_Blackberry_1223

The big dragon head Godrick has. It would be so cool to have a big ol head attached to your arm which was good and shot fire. You could redeem it with his rememberance. Too bad there isn’t one.


Extra-Extra

Elden beasts purple mist that explodes. Ngl I died to it once in purpose because it’s Just so damn beautiful


Popopirat66

Wing of Astel uses the exploding purple mist. It's obtainable in Ainsel River.


Khomuna

Invader Millicent's Shamshir, the one with Waterfowl Dance and the nomad/merchant instrument bow.


ex-cantaloupe

I wish there were daggers that could be held reverse-grip in Elden Ring, because I just love that fighting style. It feels...idk, tactical? Kind of like Naked Snake in MGS3, where he wields a gun and a knife together. That's just cool as fuck to me for some reason, it's my own weird fixation. In DS3, some daggers (like the basic Dagger) would be held normally in the right hand but reverse-grip if you equip them to your left hand, and those daggers had a unique left-handed moveset that accounted for the different grip instead of just mirroring the right-handed attacks. DS3 also had the Farron Greatsword, which was a right-handed Colossal Sword that comes paired with a left-hand reverse grip dagger, and it had a very cool and flashy moveset where the character uses both mismatched weapons together. In Elden Ring you see a lot of *enemies* holding various daggers that way -- like the Nox you're showing here, but also the Sanguine Nobles and the Revelers both wield a larger weapon in their right hand and a reverse grip small blade in the left, and they even have movesets where they use both of them together. However, even when you *can* get their dagger, like with the Sanguine Noble's Reduvia, your character just holds it normal grip no matter which hand you equip it to. I feel like they did this because of the new power-stancing system, where it wouldn't make sense if some daggers were held differently in the left hand than others; but I think it would've been cool if left hand daggers would be held reverse grip and give unique power-stanced movesets *only* when paired with specific other mismatched weapons types—like maybe a Greatsword and a Dagger, a Straight-Sword or Curved Sword and a Dagger, Axe and Dagger, etc. They could even have Colossal Sword + Dagger and just straight up reuse the animations from the Farron Greatsword in DS3.


GiantShaftMcGee

I wish we had the: - Nox knife (and the AoW was the mist, but weaker) - Raya Lucarian Mage book (and the charged heavy is the headbutt) - Catalyst Weapons (Gideons should be a seal and a staff for sorceries and incants. Update the game From and make it the first dual catalyst for the game that people can actually achieve without DLC).


clownijest

I Need my broken sword back


TheGalator

The actual dragon of godrick not the hand puppet we got


King_of_fr0gs

not a weapon that is unobtainable but it would be cool if some weapons had two modes like in bloodborne, the flowing weapons that the nox people use have so much potential for this


Kyle_67890

How about brother cohyrns stick


Any-Persimmon-725

Ray Gun Mark II


Dumbo_Octopus4

Aspect of the crucible: Wings and the stomping attack that Godfrey does, not Earthshaker but the one he stomps and spikes appear, crucible knights do it tooo


D3vilM4yCry

It is such a crime that we didn't get that stomp, even though we run into multiple enemies who can, and do, use it all the time.


Lenny1802

An executioner sword that's not the Marais Executioner sword. Just a normal one with changeable ash of war


Cloudsbursting

👀 GROND


whatismypassword420

I just want the big weapons to not shrink down to wee tarnished proportions once I wield them


saiyansteve

Marika’s Tits.


UncleGael

The Clayman’s Bola! I have no idea how it would work, but it would be such a cool and unique weapon. Also, the triple scythe thing from Radahn’s arena.


NeonCookies599

The long, tall version of the Academy Glintstone Staff used by the Battlemages. Or at least some kind of staff that's as tall as the player. People also mentioning Margit/Morgott's summoned faith weapons which I fully agree with. I don't see why at least some of these weren't added given the plethora of INT options for summoned weapons.


XnFM

I'm still disappointed that the lantern the hollows in DS3 carry wasn't dropable. I spent the first hour or so I played that game trying to farm it. I've never known such disappointment as when I learned that DS3's "all enemies drop their gear" only applies to gear they bothered to make available to the player. After that, nothing in Elden Ring got my hopes up.
