Chameleon is a Sorcery in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Ancient sorcery of the lost land of Oolacile. Transform into something inconspicuous.
A separate stealth spell from Hidden Body. A skilled stealth sorcerer must be aware of his or her surroundings and of which objects are prime candidates for imitation.


General information[]

Upon use, Chameleon will transform the user into an object, depending on the surroundings. The spell lasts until it is cancelled by any action other than moving slowly or moving into a new area. Chameleon decreases the aggro range of enemies, and makes it impossible for opponents to lock on to the player in PvP, even if they are moving while it is in effect. The following is a table of the objects players may transform into and where they can do so:

  • When traveling between locations, the spell will only be canceled if the user moves into an area where the object of disguise is different. i.e. Moving between Darkroot Basin and Undead Burg cancels the spell, but moving between Darkroot Basin and Darkroot Garden will not.
