Dark Bead


In-Game Description

Abyss sorcery discovered by an Oolacile
sorcerer on the brink of madness.
Fire successive Dark Orbs.

In contrast to standard soul sorceries,
Abyss sorceries are weighty and inflict
physical damage. Perhaps a human soul is
closer to matter in its humanity.


Found on a corpse behind a Bloathead Sorcerer in the Chasm of the Abyss.

  • A single target can be struck multiple times, so the spell can potentially deal high amount of damage at close range.
  • Dark sorceries deal physical damage in addition to magical damage, and deal more damage to stamina and poise than standard sorceries,
  • The magic damage scales with the INT scaling of your equipped catalyst, and the physical damage scales with the STR and DEX scaling of your equipped catalyst.
  • Two-handing a catalyst does not increase the STR scaling of dark sorceries.
  • Like any other Additional Contents, this sorcery doesn't count towards the Wisdom of a Sage Trophy/Achievement.
