The Scholar's Candlestick is a dagger in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A candlestick covered in ivory scales once used by the Scholars of the Great Archives.
This served as their guiding light, as well as a tool of self-restrain. Even today, wielders of this weapon benefit from the resulting sorcery-strengthening properties.
Weapon Skill: Guiding Light
The candle provides a temporary source of light which reveals additional guidance.

Characteristics[]

This weapon offers unimpressive physical damage and has a high Faith requirement to wield despite not scaling with that stat; as such, it is generally considered a very poor weapon regardless of circumstances.

However, its main characteristic is that while wielded it increases the damage dealt by any offensive Sorceries by 10%, regardless of whether they deal Magic or Dark damage, and regardless of whether or not the player meets the wielding requirements. As it stacks with other spell-boosting equipment such as Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring and Crown of Dusk, it is considered a staple off-hand tool for any dedicated Sorcerer build.
