The Oolacile Catalyst is a catalyst in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Everyday Oolacile sorcery catalyst formed by several enchanted branches.
Boosts sorcery adjustment, but lost land sorceries are not offensive, and attacks are not affected by intelligence.


Rare drop from Bloathead Sorcerers in the Oolacile Township and Chasm of the Abyss.


The Oolacile Catalyst is similar to the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst in that it has a flat magic adjust of 180 once the Intelligence requirement has been met. This makes it the best catalyst to use for 10 and 11 intelligence, while tying with the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst for being the best catalyst to use between 12 and 26 intelligence.

It has the advantage of having a lower intelligence requirement than the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst as well as being poisonous, inflicting a buildup of 30 per strike. Unfortunately, it is also 1.5 units heavier.

Its Poison deals 3 damage per second for a period of 3 minutes once inflicted.
