      Does this work with elemental damage on melee weapon? For example, if you buff your weapon with lightning blade, after 3 hits, the lightning damage is buffed too? And with elemental infusion? if i have a chaos broadsword, after 3 hit the fire damage is buffed?

        Needs Duration Buff07 Sep 2016 03:51  

        It frustrates me that Sacred Oath is a full minute while this is 30 seconds. Either needs duration buff or reduce number of slots required.

            I can confirm that a +0 Lingering dragoncrest ring adds about 10 seconds while a +1 adds about 15 seconds. I haven't tested +2 as I don't have it.

              Does this spell work on weapons that are unable to be buffed by resin etc.? Unsure if self buff would act differently vs weapon buff. Anyone know?

                  The base ring upped duration to 39 seconds, anyone willing to test the better ones?

                    This is an alpha strike spell for rapid swinging weapons.17 Apr 2016 19:45  

                    It gives you a small immediate damage buff upon cast, and will cause you to do more damage if you land enough subsequent hits in short order, however the spell's utility is greatly hampered by its short duration, which seems to be about 30 seconds.<br/>If you really wanted a flynn's ring type build and aim to overwhelm your opponent immediately this may be for you, but otherwise I think you may be disappointed.
