Affinity is a sorcery in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A forbidden dark sorcery. Casts a dark manifestation of humanity.
It appears to be an expression of envy, or perhaps love towards another, that will tenaciously pursue its target. Even if, like so many human desires, it amounts to nothing but misfortune.


Sold by Karla for 15,000 souls.


Conjures up five orbs around the caster, similar to Homing Soulmass. When an enemy within the caster's frontal arc gets close enough, the orbs lock on and slowly chase the target, with each orb capable of dealing 0.6 times the Spell Buff of the wielded catalyst as Dark damage upon impact. If the orbs collide with any level geometry without flying at a target, they will automatically explode.

As with other Dark Sorceries, this spell is subject to having its power boosted by wielding the proper catalyst.

Unlike Homing Soulmass and Homing Crystal Soulmass, the number of orbs conjured is always 5, regardless of the caster's Intelligence.
