Great Magic Barrier is a miracle in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Miracle of Bishop Havel the Rock. Cover body in powerful def. magic coating.
Havel the Rock, an old battlefield compatriot of Lord Gwyn, was the sworn enemy of Seath the Scaleless. He despised magic, and made certain to devise means of counteraction.


Found in Ash Lake, inside the hollow tree. When entering the tree normally, the spell will be unreachable. To reach it, the player must walk on the branch outside (the one with a Basilisk on it) and stop halfway, turn the camera, and fall down onto a lower branch.

General InformationEdit

Great Magic Barrier greatly increases magic resistance for its duration. Great Magic Barrier is considered a personal buff and thus cannot be used in conjunction with other personal buffs, such as Power Within, Flash Sweat, or even Green Blossoms  etc.
