The Sunless Talisman is a talisman in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Talisman given to the knights of the Sunless Realms, who serve the nameless moon.
Scales with intelligence, which is rare for a miracle catalyst, but makes it compatible with Dark. In the Sunless Realms, this fact is related first as an initial warning.
Skill: Unfaltering Prayer
Temporarily increases poise while casting miracles, preventing enemy attacks from interrupting prayer. Works while equipped in either hand.



As noted in its description, the Sunless Talisman is a catalyst specialized for casting Dark Miracles.

When casting normal Miracles, this talisman performs rather poorly, as its Faith scaling is not particularly strong. However, when used to cast Dark Miracles, it gains the ability to utilize its full Spell Buff rating by incorporating Intelligence into its attack power, as well as gaining an additional power boost by casting a spell that is classified as Dark, increasing in strength by between 40% and 64%, depending on the specific spell. This means that even if the caster has not made any investments into Intelligence, the Sunless Talisman can be extremely potent for casting spells such as Dorhys' Gnawing. However, in order to unlock its maximum potential, it is ideal to level both Faith and Intelligence equally.

It is also worthwhile to note that unlike most talismans, its scaling gives it casting power comparable to its chime counterpart, Caitha's Chime. However, as it also possesses Unfaltering Prayer, giving it poise-casting, this makes the Sunless Talisman a superior combat tool as it only deals slightly less damage than Caitha's Chime with offensive Dark Miracles.
