Rose of Ariandel is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

A flail used by the bulbous Father of the Painted World to shred his own skin, producing blood to appease the flame. Both a weapon and a miracle catalyst.

Ariandel, being the restorer of the Painted World, knew that it was painted with blood, and only blood could protect the secret.

Skill: Awakening

Violently flail oneself to trigger an awakening that temporarily boosts the strength of miracles, just as the good Father used the rose himself.

Notes and Tips:

  • Not Buffable nor Infusable.
  • Upgrades with Titanite Scales.
  • Casts Miracles on strong attack.
  • Faith scaling softcaps at 40 for casting and physical damage.
  • At 40 Faith, the total Spellbuff is 189.
  • Despite being classified as a whip weapon, it has the moveset of a small club; however, it cannot backstab or riposte just like the other whips. It has no strong attacks, but can still do a jump attack.
  • As of update 1.33, all of this weapon's attacks are now unparriable just like other whip weapons. However, it no longer has poise on its two-handed attacks.
  • Its design is based off of a Cat o' nine tails, a multi-tailed whip used for corporal punishment.

        Note that you need to meet the stat requirements for the WA to do more than hurt yourself. Buff seems to be around 25% and lasts about two minutes.

          I think the strong attack of this is underrated. Its also a shame that people have to choose between this and the scythes because they're both great

            Just a word of warning for duelers out there, people WILL rush you and kill you while your doing your weapon art. For some reason this flail not only awakens your miracles but also awakens the rise of the Scum. (See what I did there)

              Is this good enough to be a primary melee weapon for PvP on 60 faith character? Personally, I'm a little skeptical of how useful it might be as an actual weapon in the arena.

                  This would definantly make my faith build even more op. But it hurts my fashion game.... I always make sure nobody sees me by running to a corner and whipping myself only to return with canvas talisman and nuking people,

                    Ok let me explain to y'all real quick.
                    1:Upgrading does not increase the weapon Art,but feel free to upgrade.
                    2:the Weapon Art is 20%,unless your running a miracle build(Darkmoonblade,Sacred Oath,Deep protection),do not take this weapon
                    3:it's not cool getting whipped but it's worth lol
                    4:Enjoy that information in that order,Perhaps Im late AF but hear me out if you still have doubts about this weapon.

                      Why isn't the spell buff at 60 FTH displayed? Or 99 for that matter. Just for reference. And why has noone bothered to mention the WA and/or by how much it buffs your miracles?
