Soul Spear Barrage is a sorcery in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Fires a flurry of soul spears.
Inflicts high damage when multiple spears hit.
A reworking of an ancient spell concocted
at the Melfian Magic Academy.
A simple idea, but potentially highly effective.
When used properly, of course.


General information[]

When cast, this sorcery sends dozens of miniature Soul Spears forward, doing little damage if only one or two hit, but much more significant damage if multiple spears land on one target.

Attunement milestones[]

Like all other spells, the amount of casts per slot increases upon reaching certain Attunement milestones:

Attunement Level Amount of Casts
10 3
32 4
49 5
94 6


  • When casting this spell while locked on to a target, the soul spears will not track its target, and all will be shot at the spot that the target was in when the spell was initially cast. However, when using binoculars, the soul spears can be aimed elsewhere.
