  • Works on enemies with any sort of projectile magic attacks, and can even trivialize some bosses like Aldrich, Devourer of Gods as it disables his arrow rain attack, magic orbs and magic spears. However, it only lasts 15 seconds so the player has to constantly keep up with the spell.
  • Range can be increased by Sacred Chime of Filianore.
  • It disables the ability to use your spells too.
  • Reveals Mimics and the Londor Assassin in the Church of Yorshka.
  • Does not appear to be affected by the Lingering Dragon Crest Ring.

      Since it isn't otherwise mentioned, Vilhelm in the Painting of Ariandel will repeatedly use this if you have any sort of catalyst in hand. It also prevents him from casting his healing miracle, so he sometimes dooms himself.

        I have this with me just in case a smug bow glitch abuser invaded me and tries to insta WoG me. It feels good to see them panic when they can’t use their precious great heal in half a second and they have to actually fight me the intended way.

          This has alot more range than I expected. It affected blacksmith Andre from the steps next to the Shrine Handmaid.

            You can use this for younger Lothric. It works. It can be hard to pull off. It stops his white CSS and the white homing projectiles.

                This spell is only good for cheesing PvE. Ever wondered why you never saw people use it or the fact that there's like 1,5 PvP videos showcasing it on YT after all these years? Lets say you cast it in PvP: a) The guy is so bad he can do nothing without spells b) He has a backup weapon scaling with INT/FTH and uses it for 15 sec. In both cases you don't really gain anything, you're the one who has to be locked into casting animation and then get your spell nullified by rolling around. This spell is a literal waste of time you spend on casting animation, not to mention the high requirements. I wouldn't mind watching some videos of noobs getting wrecked by this though, so be my guest.

                  I tried to use this at soul of cinder and it wasn't really useful because the game kinda bugged out and he still used some of his spells

                    Vow of silence is pretty great with the lingering dragoncrest ring, tbh. In group pvp it's very helpful and yes, it destroys Aldrich. He'll just stand there repeatedly trying to cast magic. It's funny. I spam this to pull aggro in group pvp, it's so funny watching the mages get irritated and rush me before the rest of their team does the same because their dynamic is screwed with me there.

                      I was going to warn people that quite a few of these Posts seem more boastful than realistic but I wont. Any seasoned player will typically carry a damage oriented weapon they prefer, a faster/Ultility weapon and after NG builds begin to run together. 15s that doesn't remove Self buffs already in effect, slow cast wind up, short range and your next recast is 15s away. Both of you know it and knows to wail on you when you try. Like any Caster has had done to themselves and others early in PVP/PVE. This is a niche spell, use it in PVP and against Aldrich. Keep up with recasts as often as possible, let me know how effective it seems?

                        If you’re having issues with Aldrich, this miracle turns him into a weak pathetic worm. He becomes powerless and unable to really hurt you, just be sure to recast it ASAP when it ends else the worm will turn.

                          As a "Caster" I still rocked Magic Lothric Sword, Chaos Harpe and Catalyst in Main. B.N.S, Parry Dagger and Pryo Flame in off hand. I never had a problem with V.o.S being used on me. Now that hit all my primary Stats I began leveling Faith. Feels nice to check out all Miracles, I had to use Wall of light and Quickstep Aldrich. Looking forward to NG+ and revenge.

                            Why would you use this, It takes up two slots and lasts around ten seconds, I mean who would hate miracles and spells so much to waste you time with this!?

                              This spell is a homewrecker for casters. I main magic users and anything that silence is a pain in the ass. It's the main reason I carry the MLGS on my caster.

                                so i actually made a build based around vow of silence and it was really disappointing, while it seems like a good idea on paper its slow casting speed leaves you vulnerable to at least one spell and if its a dedicated caster one soul spear is almost all of your health so you can maybe get it off at the beginning of the round or if you run behind cover, it doesn't interrupt casting or remove soul mass which makes its very easy to punish you while you're casting so you cant really use it in the line of sight of a caster, now lets say you do manage to get them with it well they will either run until it goes away or spam r1 while your chasing them but since there casters there just going to play super passive, now once you do hit them with vow you can chain it so the moment it runs out you cast again before they can but it still leaves you vulnerable quick spells and they can hit you with there weapon while your casting. so not only is it heavily handicapped by its speed but it also has high requirements and its very situational(its not even a good in those situations) with the same stats or less you could get sacred oath or tears of denial which are nice to have in any situation so why not use them they actually do there jobs well. now vow does have its niche uses in pve but its not a something you will want to have attuned all the time. i was running the sage ring+2 rof+3 prisoners chain and lingering dragon crest+2 casting with the bellvine i had a bastard sword and a broad sword with dark infusions and a buckler(i actually won more fights when i stopped using vow and ended up with gold, i lost more to casters with this build than i have with any other) so basically what you can gather from this is don't use vow in pvp its not worth the investment and it will probably just get you killed

                                  30 faith, 2 attu slots and it last for 15 seconds... thanks from! Should be 30 seconds for that sort of cost.

                                  But actually, thinking about it..15 seconds is too long, the poor chaos bed vestiges and crystal soul spear are so slow to cast and do such minute damage... 15 seconds is too long for them to not be able to cast.
