        I really love this Spell! It’s a pity it didn’t cross over into DS3 along with its lesser version. Hexers are NOT an easy build to craft! Aside from needing high attunment, you need to balance the faith and intelligence to have an effective use. When you’re going by a set lvl standard, like 90-150, you have to make a lot of sacrifices as well as farm lots of spice.

        That being said however, Hexers were the glass cannon of the spell casters and being allowed access to both sorcery and miracles, it was easily interchangeable. I’m guessing it was over abused and Fromsoft just up and said, “Nope! No more dark wizards! We will only allow dark orbs and Dead Again!” I really miss Dark Fog also.

          I don't want to spend that much souls, for me I prefer the Resonant soul which cost 100 souls only. This cost 500 souls for 55% one shot. so if the Resonant soul that cost 100 souls is 20% the damage when it was shot 3 times was 60% for 300 souls, much better. just my opinion sorry.
