Dead Again is a hex in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Hex that casts a dark flame upon corpses, causing them to combust violently.
Hexes such as these, that tamper with life itself, are particularly abhorred.
Catalyst: Staff


General information[]

When cast, causes black flames to appear on nearby fallen corpses, which explode violently shortly after. The explosion causes a large amount of damage, which stacks with each corpse that detonates. The corpses all explode at the same time, allowing for potentially massive amounts of damage against an opponent; however, it also means that players with good timing can dodge all explosions without incurring damage. The corpses are not consumed after detonation, meaning they can be reused repeatedly. However, the hex can only be cast when dead bodies are in the area. The spell doesn't do much damage to The Rotten, even though this boss is made up of corpses.
