"Hurls a huge soul mass which splits into smaller souls that rain from above.

Requires real talent and is difficult to handle. Only works in certain places, and against certain foes."

Acquired From




  • Shoots a ball of souls overhead that rain down small Soul Arrows, dealing magic damage. The small souls will home to the nearest target, stunning and inflicting low damage. If the ball of souls touches a ceiling, the spell gets cancelled. Very useful for setting up other spells in PvP, ie. Crystal Soul Spear.
    Loses damage and range when spiced down to low intelligence (10-12) (need confirmation).

      Should add to the notes if this is required for the achievement. Obv it's a sorcery and all the other souls games have required the boss soul gear to complete relevant achievs but should still be documented for those of us who're int 1

        Pretty useless for PVE, but pretty useful for PVP, like most spells added on DS2, and this is something I rlly dislike about this game, playing like a PVE mage is just Soul Arrow, Magic Weapon, Soul Spear.

          Yes it’s useful and can be very effective if used properly, but for a boss soul spell? It’s... disappointing. To say the least.

            Spell seems to do a lot more damage if you're higher up that the target. Possibly because they all become headshots and they seem to track better with more hitting. Used against the short dudes in sol while standing on the roof it hits for over 700. Against the unpleasant peasants in brightstone under the rock trap it was smacking them for over 1000 damage a pop when I was helping a friend in ng7.

              As a sorcerer with a 30 kill streak, this spell is my number 1 opener.

              The things is, the extremely low damage is offset by high stun and tracking of the missiles - just a few are usually enough to cause some severe stagger. That stagger is just enough for me to cast a Soul Arrow of most varieties, or even a Soul Spear. Very often the spell also prompts the opponent to try and flee or roll backwards, likewise usually giving me an opening to cast something more offensive their way. Combine this with the massive distraction of Soul Vortex or the surprisingly useful spread of Soul Spear Barrage, and the spell becomes a very strong tool.

              As a source of damage, it's negligible - but as a pressure tool it's invaluable.
