Aural Decoy is a Sorcery in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Sorcery used by playful sorcerers. Lure enemies away by creating a sound originating in the distance.
This spell is not the first choice for serious sorcerers, but it has a surprising amount of applications, some of them extremely effective.


Sold by Griggs of Vinheim for 1,000 souls after he is rescued from the Lower Undead Burg, provided that the player has 10 Intelligence or higher.

General information[]

Aural Decoy lures enemies to a targeted location in a similar fashion to usage of Alluring Skulls. Most enemies will be distracted to the point of completely ignoring the player. When the Capra Demon is fought as a boss, it will be distracted, but for a shorter time compared to normal enemies.
