Caitha's Chime is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Sacred chime blessed by Caitha, goddess of tears.

Rare even amongst Carim clerics. Affected by intelligence, a rare thing for miracle catalysts, and also agreeable with miracles that lean towards the Dark. Its existence is concealed in the name of the Archbishop, as it is anathema.

Skill: Gentle Prayer
Recovers HP for a period of time, albeit extremely slowly. Works while equipped in either hand.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed. 
  • Can only cast Miracles.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Dark miracles cast with this chime will scale with both Intelligence and Faith up to a 45/45 softcap. Dark miracles cast with any other chime will scale only with Faith up to 60, and will deal only less damage.
  • Contrary to this chime's description, its Intelligence scaling only applies to dark miracles and will have no effect on miracles that deal lightning or physical damage
  • When casting normal miracles with this chime, only the Faith scaling is considered and its softcap is at the normal amount of 60 Faith.
  • The chime has to remain active in your hand for the weapon art to continue regenerating health.
  • At 60 INT and 60 FTH it has a spellbuff of 312.



Location/Where to Find

  • Lothric Castle
    • Start at Dragonslayer Armor Bonfire
    • Go back towards the entrance to the bossfight and turn left. Before you should be a chapel with an elevator in it
    • Enter the chapel, then go up the first flight of stairs within
    • Turn left to find an open doorway and use it to exit the chapel
    • Once on the balncony, turn left to see a break in the guard rail
    • Very slowly walk off the balcony through the break. The fall will cause about 741 damage, so be prepared. Silvercat Ring / Spook / Walking it off
    • Upon landing, turn left and make your way to the end of that section of roof. You have a very small drop to make. It should not cause fall damage. Drop down.
    • Pick up Caitha's Chime from the corpse on that ledge.
    • Video Example starting at 3rd bullet

      I'm not sure where people are getting the "useless dark miracles" from, but I'm on NG+++ with 60 INT and 60 FTH, and when I use DGnaw with Caitha's Chime, it melts bosses' faces, and larger enemies for that matter. The ONLY real weakness of dark miracles is massed enemies/hordes.

        At 40 int and 40 faith, this chime outdamages the sunless talisman on Lifehunt Scythe and Dorhys' Gnawing. Tested on the firekeeper.

          FYI, make sure you aren't using this thing to buff your weapon with Dark Blade, as explained in the comments on that miracle's page: http://darksouls3.wiki.fextralife.com/Dark+Blade

            isn't a bit useless to give it gentle prayer if it's a combat specific chime, why not give it unfaltering prayer? well I guess it doesn't matter since hexes are garbage in this game

                Without the GRS Miracle, this catalyst has little purpose.<br/><br/>I truly hope they bring back the GRS in the DLC and all the fun/infamous hexes that made Hexers OP in DS2. That or some new dark miracles, like a dark lightning spear or something.<br/><br/>Live and hope.

                  best buff chime20 Apr 2016 15:43  

                  This chime is the best chime to cast hexes with, since it has an A scaling with INT and FTH.<br/>Furthermore, it's actually the best chime/talisman to buff dark/lightning with since it has the highest spell buff attribute.

                    My Caitha's Chime has a spell bonus value of over 200. Since only the total is shown (base+scaling) and that total is heavily influenced by stats or a lack thereof, I'm thinking maybe showing it here might be a tad impractical.
