Dark Orb


In-Game Description

Abyss sorcery discovered by an Oolacile
sorcerer on the brink of madness.
Fire giant Dark Orb.

In contrast to standard soul sorceries,
Abyss sorceries are weighty and inflict
physical damage. Perhaps human souls,
because of their humanity, produce
sorceries with a more tangible presence.


Found in a chest guarded by two Bloathead Sorcerers in Oolacile Township.

  • Dark sorceries deal physical damage in addition to magic damage, and deal more damage to stamina and poise than standard sorceries.
  • The magic damage of dark sorceries 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 strength scaling on dark sorceries.
  • Like any other Additional Contents, this sorcery doesn't count towards the Wisdom of a Sage Trophy/Achievement.
