Resonant Soul 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 dark mass at the cost of souls.

Can be used even without souls,
but at a greatly reduced strength.

Catalyst: sacred chime"

  • Costs 100 souls per cast for maximum damage. Tested at full power, when compared to Dark Orb, it deals 20% more damage, has a 50% higher range and projectile speed, and a slightly extended cast time. One benefit is that it is cast using a chime, and the best chimes are better than the best staves for hexing (having either higher damage, or higher speed, or both). It is a less powerful version of Great Resonant Soul.

      I still don't see how this is better than just using dark orbs. Sure it's a little more damage with better range and projectile speed but this doesn't outweigh the advantages of the dark orb being only one slot not two so you can carry twice as many for the number of slots used. Dark orbs are free to cast and faster to get. Dark orbs cast faster, and being cast from a staff the dark orb has the potential to headshot shorter enemies at medium to close range because of the height difference from where it's cast. I think I'll stick with Old Reliable, the dark orb.

        Even if it's a less powerful version, for it to be 1/5 the price of the great resonant soul, it does more than half. This is the better deal (great resonant soul is said to do 55% more than the regular).
