Notes

  • Basic dark spell. High number of casts. Excellent for PvE. Less effective than Resonant Soul.
    Recommend to cast it with Dark Witchtree Branch and Clear Bluestone Ring +2 for an outrageously fast casting speed, handy as PvP standard projectile.
  • Also cast with Dark Clutch Ring and Abyss Seal to maximize damage output to easily deal 800-900 damage in PVP and about 500-700 damage in PVE (Tested with 60 fth, 60 int, 50 atn, and dark Sunset Staff +5 SotFS)
    Does good poise damage but and can do massive stamina damage.

      Worst hex ever, get hit once devours 85% of your stamina, 20 cast per copy, you get two, and the lag makes it terrible.
