The White Hair Talisman is a talisman in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Talisman made from a lock of white hair.
This lock of hair belonged to a deformed member of the chaos witches, mothers of the art of pyromancy. Fashioned into a talisman, it enables the wielder to cast both miracles and pyromancies.
Skill: Combustion
Creates a powerful flame in the wielder's hand. One of the most basic pyromancies, and for this reason, the flame created is fierce. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found on a corpse at the back of a lava pit, behind an illusory wall in the Smouldering Lake.


Unique in the Dark Souls franchise, this item serves as a catalyst for both Miracles and Pyromancies. However, the damage scaling on this talisman is very poor and its only real use is to cast buffs that are not affected by the strength of the casting medium.

How to obtainEdit

In order to survive the trip inside the lava, there are many strategies that can be followed and even combined before venturing inside. The main idea is to slow down the loss of HP enough time, allowing the player to heal up and advance a bit further, repeating the process as many times as necessary until they have successfully gotten the item and returned to solid ground. Each time the player's health reaches half of the HP bar, they should heal.

Here is a small list with just a few strategies to survive:


The strong attack delivers a punch and the weapon's skill casts Combustion.


  • As mentioned, this catalyst has a very poor spell buff that makes this an inadequate caster of offensive spells.
  • However, since some of the best buffs in-game belong to miracles and pyromancies, this can be an invaluable item to builds that utilize such buffs.



Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
