Primal form of Force. Creates a powerful shockwave.

Wrath of the Gods is an epic tale, while Force is but a woefully incomplete version of that yarn. 

This primal account of profound fury emits a shockwave that also inflicts damage.

      this is really useful at invasions, to throw people off the map, especially gankers. Just climb some stairs and wait for one of them, or go in dangerous falling zones and use it

        I don't know what people are talking about, i've been kicking ASS with this. Especially in PvE, but definitely in PvP as well. In PvP it REALLY shines when there're multiple people fighting each other because i can run up and use this in the middle of all of them and hit like 600 damage on average which is usually around half of their hp. I have 50 faith to get this damage btw. PvE it just destroys in... you don't even need a brain for this to be useful in PvE so i'll just focus on PvP. I can use this MID FIGHT and hit people, it's not THAT slow... I don't know if it's been patched or what, but i can get in an R1 with my carthus curved greatsword and start up this spell and people will spam a hit or two before trying to roll away after realizing what i'm doing and will get roll caught trying to roll away. : D It's perfect against gankers and if you can get someone with this you can repeatedly hit people with it if you time it right. This is without the sage ring too, it's even faster with that. : D

          Pretty useless even in PVE. Mobs can hit you until you're done casting or you're dead. At least Emit Force is useful as its cast fast and does the same this would be used for if it didnt take forever to cast: shieldbreak.

            Had to update the page. The old information of the spell taking 3-4 seconds to cast is outdated. After regulation 1.11, which did actually decrease the spell's casting time though this was left unstated in the patchnotes, WoG's takes about 1.7 seconds to cast with max dex. This number was reached using a stop watch, so it's only an approximation of course.

              Gotta cast this with canvas/sunlight talisman with the unfaltering prayer WA. Also putting Saint-Tree Bellvine in offhand is a good idea to boost the cast speed.

                This miracle is to hard to hit with even with the poise art most people aren't aggressive enough. Rather use lightning storm than this in my experience that hits more often because of its range and you can ashen estus right after because of its lasting effects around you

                  I'm sorry but everyone needs to stop complaining about how "useless this is"
                  It has a use in PVP, and I hit with it ever few matches.
                  It is super effective against overly aggressive players,
                  Just hit them with force and run away (to get space), hide behind one of the many things in the arena, then poise cast. Most overly aggressive players think you are healing and they come blasting overhead for a fancy jump attack. PAOW!! That will teach them.

                  • Ideas for improvement15 Sep 2016 22:48  

                    The improvements to this miracle do not in any way make up for this awful miracle. Its still too long to cast and still not feasible to use on a faith build in comparison to other spells. Take Lightning Spear; easy to get, early in the game, ranged attack, less Focus, AND MUCH FASTER. WOTG is my favorite miracle, but in its current form is all but unusable on anyone but Chumps in PVP and NG enemies. My opinion is to give it range, the same startup, and upgraded power. More faith, more range, no buff to power. Oh, and make it have a cool down so that it can't be easily spammed. Same slow-ass animation, but now its fun and usable again. Or even do it so that you can't cast miracles for like 7 seconds afterwards or something, just BRING IT BACK FROM PLEASE.

                      So I am a phantom in this guy's world and he uses finger. One guy comes in and he is able to use this miracle 4-5 times back to back to back no wait time between castings...

                        Worthless. At 30 dex, can't use this in any practical sense. AOE range is small, knockback in PVE is disappointing, damage is barely aight.<br/><br/>I'm starting to feel a miracle build was a waste of 15 hours...

                        • remember when30 Apr 2016 21:19  

                          Remember When this spell didnt suck back in DS1 lol. The Over nerf on WoG is real it was balanced in pvp for DS1 with i-frames gimmie back my faith builds

                          • Casting speed on Wrath of the Gods (Sage Ring/Dex is effective)27 Apr 2016 16:41  

                            So I did some testing on the casting speed for WotG. The character I use is a Faith Strength build (50 Faith 30 Str) and I have 13 Dex.<br/>Using a stop watch, I timed how long it took for the spell to proc. I started as soon as I hit the cast button, and stopped as soon as the explosion BEGAN.<br/><br/>- With 13 Dex, It took about 3.3 seconds to cast.<br/>- With 13 Dex and the Sage's Ring, about 2.5 seconds.<br/>Until this point I didn't think that Sage's Ring worked for miracles, but it does indeed. It's almost a full second faster.<br/><br/>I know Dex increases spell cast speed too, but I wasn't sure how it affected miracles either, so I respec'd my character from a Str to Dex.<br/><br/>- With 30 Dex and the Sage's Ring: about 1.7 seconds. A little more than a second and a half faster. <br/>Quite an imporvement.<br/><br/>So to anyone who wants to use this miracle on their Faith build, (and you should cos it's a very powerful miracle and does not cost that much to cast) it is totally worth using the sage's ring and having a good amount of Dex to shorten that cast time.<br/><br/>I did not test beyond 30 Dex, but I plan to make a legit Faith/Dex build soon, and then I will do more testing of speeds at different Dex incriments. I realloted my build back to strength as my weapons are based around Str. I only did the respecing to check if the cast time was significantlly shorter, and it was. 1.7 may not seem like much, but when compared to 3.3, in the heat of battle, it means A LOT.

                              Painfully slow even with the Sage's Ring. You can slow-walk during the initial part of the cast, but towards the end of the animation you will be locked in place.<br/><br/>Extremely recommended to cast with a Talisman's Unfaltering Prayer, or you will get interrupted by the first soft breeze that blows by.<br/><br/>Upside; the damage is pretty good, with both miracle rings, 35 faith, and a +6 chime, I was hitting for about 1k against hollows atop the High Wall. Doesn't exactly justify the cast time, but it's something.<br/><br/>In conclusion; another day, another once good Miracle ruined.
