Gnaw is a miracle in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Dark miracle taught in the Cathedral of the Deep.
Summons insect swarm to feast on foes.
These insects which lurk in the Deep have tiny jaws lined with fangs to tear open the skin and burrow into the flesh in the blink of an eye, causing intense bleeding.


Sold by Irina of Carim or Karla for 2,000 souls once either of them has been given the Deep Braille Divine Tome.


Fires a swarm of insects at the target, inflicting 0.9 times the Spell Buff of the catalyst as Dark damage and dealing 150 Bleed build-up. As a Dark Miracle, it is subject to augmentation from being cast using a Dark catalyst like Sunless Talisman.
