Caitha's Chime is a Sacred Chime and one of the available Weapons in Dark Souls 2. Caitha's Chime has a very fast casting speed, making it great for Hexes, especially when infused with Dark. It's also easier to upgrade compared to other chimes.


Sacred chime blessed by Caitha, goddess of tears. Hex-dedicated catalyst.

Cannot be used to cast miracles. Caitha, the goddess of tears, is known as a compassionate being that is with us in times of tragedy, but some believe that she is a demoness that guides us toward misfortune.

How to get Caitha's Chime in Dark Souls 2

  • Treasure chest in Drangleic Castle, in a room with 2 chests just after the central bonfire.
  • Dropped by Astrologist enemy in Iron Passage.


DS2 Caitha's Chime Hints and Tips

  • Extremely fast casting speed, but cannot use miracles. This is the best hex-casting chime in the game for casting quickly, but potentially loses out to Chime of Want for total power. Works best when infused with Dark.
  • Upgrades with regular Titanite, making it easier to upgrade than both the Idol's Chime and Chime of Want.
