Climax is a Hex in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Hex, you must use a staff/chime or Special Weapons that can cast Hex.
"A hex that distorts the power of life.
Emits a mass of dark, but at the cost of all souls.
Strength varies depending on the number of souls. Not a hex to be used lightly."
Catalyst: "sacred chime"
- Obtained from Pilgrims of the Dark covenant Rank 3
- 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.
