Dark Orb is a Sorcery in Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss.

In-Game Description

Abyss sorcery discovered by an Oolacile sorcerer on the brink of madness. Fire giant Dark Orb.
In contrast to standard soul sorceries, Abyss sorceries are weighty and inflict physical damage. Perhaps human souls, because of their humanity, produce sorceries with a more tangible presence.


Found in a chest guarded by two Bloathead Sorcerers early in the Oolacile Township.
