Dark Orb 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 father of Hexing.
Fires a heavy orb of darkness.

To use hexes, equip a sacred chime or staff, and attune a hex at a bonfire.
Required equipment depends on hex.

Catalyst: Staff"

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.  Increasing Attunement will increase the number of uses.  Multiple instances of this spell can be equipped at the same time, assuming you have the available attunement slots.
  • 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 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.
