        Do soul consuming hexes remove from soul memory, or is it like buying something and they stay in soul memory?

          Don't be a fool like me. I used 200k souls because of the description of the hex ingame. I thought that if I used a massive amount of souls I wpuld have killed vendrick in one hit... I was wrong.

            For some reason, I can't seem to use this spell on Lost Sinner, Najka, Freja, Mytha, Nashandra or Elana. Is this a bug? Covetous Demon seems very susceptible to it, though.

              Sadly, this is the most useless hex in the game. They could at least fix it but having it’s max soul draw at 5000 souls per cast rather then ALL the souls.

                  I think that if this spell reaches max damage at 5000 souls, then its cost should max out at 5000 for big game hunting.

                    Does muffdiver mc*****stick give you another copy of these spells on NG+? I just did all the things and beat the darklurker on NG+ and all I got was another dragon chime.

                      Old Notes from previous revisions of this page before vandalism:

                      Consumes ALL held souls upon casting of the spell. Maximum damage at 5000 souls cost. An upgrade to Great Resonant Soul, its damage is increased by roughly 180%. This spell deals the highest damage in game.
                      Strategy: Use Bonfire Ascetic to farm Soul of a Brave Warrior or Giant Lord Soul at different locations in game, effectively getting a supply of 5000 souls for casting the spell at any time.
                      Deals more poise damage than Great Resonant Soul, ignores Dark Transgressor's Leather Shield even when it's fully upgraded, can be identified by its distinctive sound upon flying by.

                          I repaired the damage as best as I could so somebody in charge should look this over ("notes"!) and lock this page asap.
