Disc Chime is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.



"A rare sacred chime of unknown origin. Can be used as a shield.
This chime, likely brought here by a visiting saint, slightly augments the effects of miracles. Use strong attack to emit miracles and hexes.
Effect: use miracles and hexes (strong attack)"

 

Acquired From

  • Grave of Saints: After the Royal Rat Vanguard boss fight, past the Rat King, drop down using the sticking-out coffins to a stone "bridge"; you'll spot the treasure at the edge of the room, to the left of a chest. To reach it, you must jump off of the stone bridge onto a small ledge. Try using a plunging attack if you find yourself rolling off the edge. Be sure to equip Fall Control or the Silvercat Ring, as you may incur significant fall damage.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Can block using the regular attack button (only chime that acts as a shield/catalyst); use miracles/hexes with the strong attack button.
  • This chime has an additional secret effect - it adds a flat buff of approximately 30 points of damage when held in the off hand and casting with another chime (tested with dragon chime +10, needs additional testing)
  • Can be handy for faith/hex builds as this chime requires no strength or dexterity to use as a shield, and allows the user to cast miracles without having to switch to a dedicated chime.
  • Due to it's E rating in Dark, this chime has significantly more potential when being used with miracles.
  • Upgraded with standard titanite.
  • When infused with Lightning, this chime can almost completely negate lightning damage when used as a shield.
  • If used as a two-handed weapon it does a surprising amount of damage.
  • At 50 Faith, this chime has a lightning damage bonus of 349.

      Lunging attacks with this will do insane damage, and it's hilarious watching a player in full armor with a massive weapon get smacked around by a dinner plate and lose

        This shield is very useful for Sorcerers who do not want to waste to many of their souls on strength or dexterity, and want to specialize in many forms of spells. This thing is passable as either a shield when blocking anything not fire/magic, also good as a chime, and does good damage when used to smack people (tho be careful of the short range!), and it's small boost to miracle effectiveness is a nice bonus. For those looking for advice of what to pair this with when on a purist sorcerer: I'd probably at least use a regular or thief dagger in case I need criticals/backup weapon, and at the least get 5 strength for a small leather shield infused with magic to make up for the lack of parry and low magic and fire resist of this shield, and fire longsword can be okay if you are willing to get 9 dexterity. All that for 4 level ups is a good deal.... and you having something to hold you until you are willing to enter the sewers. Clerics might also wish to consider using it despite their good starting strength: either as a way to save equipment slots for other things, and/or just to smack enemies with pure lightning damage without use of offensive spells.

          Best weapon to punch someone with, and cast miracles for the base game content. Then again, you could get the Champion's Seal (Which, I went out of my way to do that for three hours. ***** that*****.), which, both can do 500 damage with high enough stats, then up to 700 with the right rings.

            Why this wasn't carried over to dark souls 3 is a complete mystery to me, it was one of the most novel ideas for a chime I've seen in any of the games, and would have made a wonderful addition.
