Dark Hail 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 modified from an old sorcery by Gilleah the Hexer.
Fires several orbs of darkness.
Hexing is both rooted in sorcery and miracles, but is viewed as a perilous affront to all life, and banned in most lands.
- Straid of Olaphis in Lost Bastille,Magerold of Lanafir
- Sold by Darkdiver Grandahl for 1500 after joining the Pilgrims of the Dark Covenant.
- Effectively a shotgun, useful on killing large enemies. Similar to Dark Bead from Dark Souls but it isn't affected by gravity. Deals around the same amount of damage as Great Resonant Soul at a slower casting speed provided all orbs hit the enemy, low precision and short ranged, it is, however, effective on staggering large enemies.

Wondering how much damage this'll do with Alva's staff with Dark clutch ring.
*metal slug voice* SHOTGUN!
I see it seems people cried so much because of dark bead and giantdad
aka balanced dark bead
this is my favorite item description. "perilous affront to all life" is such a raw statement
Yeah dark bead was pretty op in 1 I can see why they changed it to this, glad they didn’t nerf it into the ground and it remains pretty good though
This deals about the same amount of damage as Great Resonant Soul if all the orbs hit & has twice as many casts, but obviously requires you to be at close range for maximum effect. It's a good choice if you don't have a good hexing chime or don't want to switch between chime/staff constantly, keep in mind however that GRS is a much more versatile and easy-to-use spell with the same attunement cost.
9/10 would use again
Pretty much a shotgun
if you can hit your opponent with all orbs & no shield is in play this hex is a boss destroyer & an invader annihilator!
Is this the best Hex?
