      My favorite spell in the game, good for literally any build, since that pyromancy flame doesn't take up any weight, and the requirements are close to nothing.

        Why nowhere is anything about the stamina regen? I mean ingame.) here you wrote it. I never knew. Just testet it in compirson to deep protection (made a weapon and Pyromancy dmg tests) And omg its almost double as fast as with deep protection. Just wrote normal is 45 per second, and this gives you 30?! wzf that's veeeery nice! :)

          blessed +10 Lothric Knight Greatsword + blessed +10 Rapier + Sun Princess Ring + Sacred Chime of Filianore WA + Bountiful Light with this is quiet good. I used this combo for all the PVE and PVP.

            So this spell has nothing to do with the spell buff. If that's the case then I'll use it with white hair talisman to use it then heal myself.

              Tips for any fellow glass cannon bros use replenishment and cast power within 2 times, once after replenishment, and once after first power within runs out and you won’t die. Then repeat the process if necessary.

                No stat requirements + huge stamina recovery. Best spell in the game for "Running through". ie if you are trying to smurf or get +2 equipment

                  I combined this with a heavy mace + blessed weapon + sun princess ring + ethereal oak shield and filianore WA to offset the HP loss. It's monsterous. Killed a lot of players in just a couple of hits.

                    It's like adding the effect of the lord of cinder to the body and/boosting the effect to the max. Or think of it as opening your chakra gates. But lore wise it makes sense as the flame is simply the souls ablaze but this is an unnatural way to be embered so it harms you like the witches found out leading to the chaos flame and demon race.

                        So basically this spell is just causing the casters body to have something like a controlled adrenaline rush, but the strain from being in this state is slowly injuring them due to removing all of the normal "blocks" needed to prevent the body from over-stressing itself???

                          Drains 30% of your Maximum HP when used over the course of 30 seconds. If you have 1000 HP, you will lose 10 HP a second. However, this can be partially ignored by wearing the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring +2, which extends the spell effect to 42 seconds, thus making the damage accumulate, or "tick", slower. This is probably the best Body Buff in the game, as it gives you the greatest damage buff, while also making your Stamina regenerate much more quickly. The downside is negligible if you have some form of Health Regeneration, if you even care to lose 30% of your maximum life over 42 seconds. After all, the downside doesn't even matter if you never get hit, so go wild and use this instead. It has low requirements, so most builds will be able to use it fairly easily.

                          9/10, the most impactful Body Buff in the game. Actually gives you a decent damage buff, and extra Stamina Regeneration, with a minimal drawback.

                            Oh uhm, I forgot... what the heck does "additional modifier = 0.94*damage" mean? Am I dumb or does it decrease your damage output in PvP by 6%? It... Might be better to... clarify?
