Velka's Talisman is a talisman in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Medium for casting miracles of the Gods. This black tuft of hair that serves as a talisman belongs to Velka, Goddess of Sin. It casts miracles not by drawing upon faith, but intelligence.


Sold by Oswald of Carim for 5,000 souls.


Velka's Talisman scales with Intelligence instead of Faith. The minimum faith required to cast the miracle is still required.

At any level of Faith with an equal level of intelligence, there exist other talismans which have better magic adjust than Velka's Talisman. Therefore, Velka's Talisman's usefulness is limited to those who have low faith, but high intelligence.
