Requirements 15 Intelligence



Lost Sorcery from Oolacile, land of ancient golden Sorceries. Casts a light to illuminate surroundings. 

This light producing magic is elementary, but nonetheless demonstrates the pure nature of golden sorceries; 
the likes of which have not been developed even at the Dragon School.

  • The spell is the Sorcery equivalent of the skill Guiding Light and the Torch. However, the Torch has the advantage of burning off leeches and Guiding Light provides additional messages left by the developers. Due to Cast Light having no real hidden or obvious advantages of its own, it can be considered a worse version of these two.
  • Lasts for 1 minute.

      Wtf fromsoft/miyazaki? In Dark Souls 1 Cast Light lasts FIVE minutes and now in dark souls 3 it lasts ONE minute? That's some bullsh*t, lol. I don't think there are a lot of places (if at all) in dark souls 3 where you would need cast light but for when you do it's stupid that you would have to cast it every 60 seconds.

        So whenever I jolly cooperate (f**k you guys that invade) others use a spell (?) that places a magic orb into their bodies, is this it?

            For when you want PVP players to spot you from a mile away, while wasting an attunement slot. Just shoot a soul stream in the air or drop a bunch of prism stones and loot. Even in the "Only Dark Area" of the game, you could just walk pass everything with hidden body, with sounds masked. It just makes you look cool. Like Crystal Hail.

                If anyone can help out with the location that'd be great. This seems better than lugging a torch around, even if it isn't neccessary like the torch as well.
