Lightning Storm is a soul-transposed miracle in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Miracle of the Nameless King, ally to the ancient dragons.
Calls forth furious bolts of lightning.
Once a slayer of dragons, the former king and wargod tamed a Stormdrake, on which he led a lifetime of battle. This miracle is likely a tale of their bond.


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


The caster charges the catalyst for a short period of time, then releases power, creating numerous arcs of Lightning at the caster's feet that radiate outward. The shockwave from the cast, as well as each individual Lightning arc, will inflict 1.3 times the Spell Buff of the catalyst as Lightning damage and 166 Fire damage.

Each individual arc is capable of inflicting repeated instances of damage to any enemy that stands within its immediate area, allowing this spell to hit the same target numerous times, being more damaging the closer they are standing to the caster. The concentrated nature of the Lightning arcs makes this spell extremely difficult if outright impossible to roll through, meaning that the only way to avoid damage is to stand far away from the caster.
