Magic Weapon is a Sorcery in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Sorcery for casters who wield swords. Magic augmentation: right weapon.
The power of the magic swordsmen of Vinheim is predicated upon this and Magic Shield. Many warriors learn sorcery just for this.


  • Sold by Griggs of Vinheim for 3,000 souls, provided that the player has 10 Intelligence or higher.
  • Sold by Big Hat Logan for 3,000 souls, initially with a 15 Intelligence requirement but removes this after the player rescues him the second time.

General information[]

Magic Weapon may only be used on enchantable weapons, which are those that are upgraded down the Standard, Raw, or Crystal paths, as well as a limited amount of exceptions.

Magic Weapon is a weapon augmentation, temporarily adding Magic Damage to the right hand weapon. The damage added is the magic adjust of the equipped catalyst multiplied by 0.8. Wearing the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring has no effect on this sorcery.

It becomes inferior once other augmentation sorceries are acquired.
