      No damage and takes absolutely forever to cast plus often doesn’t even do much stagger I guess it probably has SOME niche use in pvp but it just feels useless

        A handy spell for PvP mixups, its slow moving nature will hit someone who might be expecting a Soul Arrow instead. It guarantees a pancake effect on contact, and while it does no damage, it can set up a Soul Shower or Vortex followup. Its low requirements also make it useable in a Pyromancy build as a possible precursor to Fire Storm.

        Shame this spell never made it to DS3.
