What is the Flame Skewer?

Flame Skewer is definitely a powerful Ash of War worth checking out. This Ash of War allows you to unleash powerful thrusting attacks engulfed in flames. You’ll find it as a drop from an invader known as Fire Knight Queelign.

However, you won’t find it the first time you defeat him. You actually have to fight Queelign twice.

Fire Knight Queelign invades the play in two different locations. However, while it is likely you will encounter him in the following order it’s possible you encounter him the opposite way. Although If this is the case, everything is the same. His drops depend on which time you beat him not where.

For his first invasion, you’ll find him within Belurat, Tower Settlement. As you explore this the dungeon, you’ll come across a large circular room with two twisting trees at its center. This is where Queelign will make his initial appearance. Upon his first defeat, you’ll be rewarded with the Crusade Insignia.

However, to acquire Flame Skewer, you need to face Queelign a second time. The secomd encounter location is the Church of the Crusade in Scadu Altus. This eerie, atmospheric location is just past the second dungeon, Castle Ensis.

Fire Knight Queelign isn’t the most challenging foe you’ll face in Elden Ring. However, his aggressive ranged fire attacks can pose a significant threat if you’re unprepared. Equip gear with high fire resistance to mitigate the damage and focus on staggering him with your attacks. Queelign is relatively easy to stagger, therefore it’s possible to interrupt his attacks and quickly bring him down. With a bit of preparation and some fire-resistant armor, you’ll find this battle to be more manageable.

Elden Ring is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The Shadow of Erdtree DLC appears on June 21, 2024.
