The Carian Retaliation is the latest Ash of War in Elden Ring that players can use to instill massive magic damage during boss fights.
Elden Ring boss fights can be a grueling ordeal without the proper equipment. Enemies like Starscrouge Radahn have massive health pools and deadly attacks.
So if you can’t deal enough damage, you might end up depleting all your flasks before you can defeat them.
With the Carian Retaliation, you’ll be able to decimate any boss’s health bar completely.

How to Get Massive Magic Damage with Carian Retaliation
To inflict a massive amount of magic damage with the Carian Retaliation, you’ll need to use the wraith calling bell to activate its ability without the need for enemy attacks.
To inflict the most damage, you’ll need to get the Wraith Calling Bell from the underground passage in Laskyar Ruins.
Once you’ve acquired the Wraith Calling Bell and the Carian Retaliation on your choice of shield, you’re ready to do OP damage.
Activate the Wraith Calling Bell and follow up with the Carian Retaliation to activate your Ash of War ability.
This will make it so that the Wraith Calling Bell you summon triggers the Carian Retaliation, putting three glinstone swords around you.
If all three of these glinstone swords hit the boss, they can inflict massive amounts of damage.
This includes late-game bosses like Godfrey, First Elden Lord Hoarah Loux.
