Golden Vow only lasts for 80 seconds by default, but we can also increase it with the help of a talisman called Old Lord’s Talisman.

Just like the previous From title, You can stack the effects of one spell over another to get a greater boost in stats. You can cast Flame, Grant me Strength to multiplicatively stack the damage of both spells.
The damage reduction of Golden Vow stacks multiplicatively with food buffs such as Boiled Crabs. Golden Vow also stacks with Black Flame’s Protection, Protection of the Erdtree, and Ash of War: Royal Knight’s Resolve. Golden Vow is an Aura buff and will not stack with other buffs of the same type.
