Sacred Oath is a very powerful buff, should one have the Faith to utilize it, granting a great boon of benefits to both the player and allies within the immediate vicinity when cast:
- Increases physical damage absorption by ~10%. (lower bonus at higher absorption levels)
- Increases elemental damage absorption by ~10%. (lower bonus at higher absorption levels)
- Increases physical attack rating by ~10%. (split-damage/split-scaling weapons yield a smaller bonus)
It is a utility miracle in the form of a buff, and thus, makes it a valuable asset to use prior to engaging a mob of enemies, or an area boss.
