Hints and Tips:

  • Upgrade with Twinkling Titanite to +5
  • Its Strong Attack will cast sorceries with 100 cast speed (Clear Bluestone Ring does affect Blue Flame's casting speed), making it a versatile option for Int builds. However, it cannot cast Hexes, only sorceries.
  • Unlike catalysts, Blue Flame can be buffed with resins and sorcery powers increased with Magic Weapon, Great Magic Weapon and Crystal Magic Weapon
  • Spell-based buffs increase the elemental damage on a weapon by a percentage of that elemental damage already present on the weapon... Catalysts (staffs, chimes, pyro-flames) have no affect on the potency of spell-based buffs.
    • example: Blue flame +5 (disregarding scaling for a moment) has 163 base magic damage. Crystal Magic Weapon is applied like so: (163 x 1.3) + 50 = 211.9 + 50 = 261.9 =~ 262 magic damage.
  • Buffing Blue Flame also seem to benefit the spell damage as well and equipping Ring of Blades. Also Aromatic Ooze outperforms Crystal Magic Weapon significantly, so much that you would need more than 50 int for Magic Blue Flame to do better damage.
  • Infused with "Raw", Blue Flame is capable of doing very high spell damage - even at 12 intelligence - making it possible to use spiced down, very damaging spells, with almost no relevant stats.
  • Infusing with "Magic" will benefit any wielder with 68 Intelligence or above; this, combined with the ability to cast Soul Spear at a low height (allowing for point blank casting), makes it a deadly weapon for a high INT built caster. .
  • If looking for a dual wield build with sorceries Blue Flame is an excellent choice (be sure to wield Blue flame in the right hand, as the Power stance overrides the Sorcery casting).
  • At least one blue flame must be equipped in order to have two weapons equipped with the same sorcery-based buff at the same time (either use two blue flames or use a staff to buff the blue flame and then switch to a weapon and buff it with the blue flame)
  • Once in power-stance, the left handed strong attack will function as it would with regular straight swords. The regular right hand Strong Attack will remain able to cast spells.
  • The Blue Flame's cast source is from the grip, not the blade, making the casting height similar to a chime.
  • If paired with Hidden Weapon or Illusory Rings, one can create an illusion as if one is able to cast spells with his/her bare hands, a very useful trick for catching PvP foes off guard..
