Creates a powerful cloud of poison mist.

The poison gradually erodes the target's body, inflicting damage all the while.
Whoever created this spell did not believe his enemies deserved a swift death."

      Awesome spell, since 80% of the bosses can be poisoned/toxic every build should have a dedicated slot for this spell, even if you're melee. Just use it once and start attacking them and you'll kill bosses much faster than before.

        If, for whatever reason, you decide to do a pyromancy-only playthrough, this spell is a lifesaver against the Old Iron King. Six casts is enough to take out most if not all of his health, especially if paired with poison mist.

          You can cast this on mimic chests and they will not become hostile. They will take damage and just sit there. It's almost enough to kill them outright. One hit from any weapon afterwards and they are dead.

            poison and toxic in this game is basically the Dark Souls equivalent to putting a shotgun in someone's mouth. It's just so overkill and one of those things you only use on enemies you really hate

              Is it's damage affected by dexterity or is it affected by another stat like intelligence since it's a spell?
