Lifehunt Scythe is a soul-transposed miracle in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Miracle of Aldrich, Devourer of Gods.
Steals HP of foes using an illusory scythe.
Aldrich dreamt as he slowly devoured the God of the Darkmoon. In this dream, he perceived the form of a young, pale girl in hiding.


Obtained by transposing the Soul of Aldrich with Ludleth of Courland for 5,000 souls.


When cast, a scythe will materialize in the caster's hands, which is then swiped in an arc in front of the caster. The scythe inflicts 2.05 times the catalyst's Spell Buff as Dark damage, and is subject to modification by casting with a dark catalyst like the Sunless Talisman.

Upon hit, this spell also restores HP on the caster, between 0.73 and 0.88 times the Spell Buff of the catalyst, being more effective with higher Faith; if multiple targets are hit, the caster will be healed multiple times. Unlike its damage, however, the heal does not scale with Intelligence, making it less effective depending on the catalyst used.
