Spell Uses



Short Range, Damaging AOE

Wrath of the Gods is a Miracle in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Miracle, you must use a chime or Special Weapons that can cast Miracle.



"Miracle that releases local shockwave, staggering nearby foes and causing heavy damage.

Little is known about the origins of this miracle, except its shared roots with the Force spell. It makes mention of certain Gods, but alas, their actual names are long forgotten."

Acquired From



  • With less than 43 ATN you only get 1 cast. A second cast is added at 43 ATN, and a third cast is added at 99 ATN.
    The damage from this spell is Lightning.
  • Can be used as a wake-up after the opponent has been back stabbed, riposted or knocked flat. In general, it is very hard to use this offensively as the opponent can simply evade it by using roll i-frames or simply rolling out of range. Best used in skirmishes and in areas with narrow corridors or obstructions.
  • If you are attempting to use it in PvP situations, I've found the most effective way to use it is to bait your opponent by running off as if you were about to heal with a miracle. They will run up without their shield raised and if you get your timing right they'll be blasted for full damage.

      Staggers and deals lightning damage in all directions and through walls, usually a bit more than 1000 damage at 50 faith with dragon chime.
      Range is a little less than a whip 1H R1. Gain another cast with saints hood or hexxers hood, or crown of the old iron king will restore 1 cast every 2 minutes.
      It has some good use clearing groups of enemies and is very satisfying to do so with.

        When i went to NG++ to get Wellager to sell it can I then use Ascetics to get multiple ones fast or do I have to play through the game everytime to get an additional cast? Or does he even sell another one at NG+++ or just the one?
        Rank 2 in Blue Sentinels isnt to hard to get tbh. just takes for ****ing ever with the invasions ;.;

          I *****ing hate how hard this is to get. Especially since the Blue Sentinels has been dead for a long time now. On top of that anytime I am a blue sentinel and I get sent into a Blue Apostle's world to rescue them they're already dead or the invader is a twink build who has a ton of health and some fully upgraded dlc weapons or boss weapons. It's *****ing bullshit. I wish i could take the person who made the decisions regarding this covenant into a room and slowly torture them until they died. It's impossible to roleplay as a paladin when you can't *****ing rank up in this covenant unless you make a low soul memory anti-twink build.

            this is pretty viable with very high cast speed and some clever use of great heal mixups... much like mixing up excerpt and heavenly thunder in a pair.

            attempt to cast great heal a couple times... roll out of it and try again... then flip to WoG and nuke the poor hungry sap... works especially well against extra offensive people and if you're missing some health, along with enough Poise to tank cast it
