Curse is a status effect in Dark Souls 3.

Curse Information

  • Effect: Instant death once the status bar fills up.
    • No lasting penalty beyond one death, compared to the original dark souls.
  • Mitigation: Cursebite Ring, Fleshbite Ring, Mossfruit, Deep ProtectionProfuse Sweat, Equipment with high Curse resistance 
  • Luck investment, contrary to popular belief (and the ingame tooltip), does NOT give extra curse resistance apart from normal curse resisntance gained from leveling any attribute.
  • Cured: None

Curse Sources

Notes

  • The Ring of Sacrifice has no effect if the player dies from exposure to Curse. The ring won't even break when equipped, but a bloodstain will be at the location of death like with any other normal death.
  • Despite what its description may seem to suggest, Purging Stones do not remove the curse status buildup. They only remove Hollowing buildup.

      Download ds3 revers souls cheat table. google it. then open the table, select dark souls 3, open hero, then statistics, then disable autosave so you dont get banned, back out to hero, then open scripts, then run the IGNORE STATUS EFFECT script. you will never get insta cursed from no good hackers again, unless you want to progress then you want to turn off the script so no invalid data then turn auto save back on. Warning you will totaly shaft bleed builds so you want to turn it off for a fair fight.

        Bleed Resistance is the defense value against Bleed which is a status effect in Dark Souls.

        Endurance increases bleed resistance by:

        END LVL 30 - 41 3.00 points

        END LVL 42 - 66 0.50 points

        END LVL 67 - 99 0.14 points

        Level affects bleed defense in the following manner:

        LVL 0 - 60 0.20 points

        LVL 61 - 101 1.00 points

        LVL 102 - 151 0.30 points

        LVL 152 - 700 0.03 points

        LVL 701 - 802 0.07 points

        FOR Poison replace Edurance with Vitality
        FOR Frost replace Edurance with Vigor
        FOR Curse replace Edurance with Luck

          I've been playing this game for almost a year now, and I just got my first death by curse. Nothing happened. Words can't explain how happy this makes me as a former hardcore Dark Souls 1 player. God bless Miyazaki.

                just few seconds ago, i was in round plaza making pvp, i matched with a very noob guy couldnt even hit me once and then suddenly some bright white light popped out of his talisman and i died with instant curse. I came here to see if there is such stupid new dlc spell for this but as i know, no!
                Dark Souls 3 has really huge hack problem and this is getting worse everyday

                  Luck does increase Curse Resistance independent of the general Resistance growth. Between 31 and 40 Luck, you gain an additional 3 points of Curse Resistance per point. 42, 43, 46, 47, 49, 52, 53, 56, and 57 Luck each give one point of Curse Resistance. From 60 to 96 Luck, you get 1 additional point of Curse Resistance per 4 points of Luck (at 60, 64, 68, 72, e.t.c.) and an additional 1 Curse Resistance at 99 Luck, for a total bonus of 50 Curse Resistance from maxing Luck. This is not counting the additional 1 point every 5 points of Luck gives to all Resistances or the 1 point you get for each Soul Level 61+.

                  Also posted to the Luck page.

                    The Angels and the Lothric Thief with the staff (one drops behind you just after the Ringed Inner Wall bonfire) both can induce Curse.

                      i disagree with the "luck does not increase curse resistance". i respeced and noticed that i could get more curse resistance by investing it all in luck.

                        If anyone wonder why they got cursed while invading in Gank City (Anor Londo/Pontiff's), it's because people use cheat engine.
                        There are alot of cheaters active right now, one of the most active cheaters is "Tyrone Biggums" which use insta-curse and usually turns on godmode when he gets low HP.

                            Interaction with Ring of Sacrifice29 Apr 2016 03:58  

                            I got cursed by the huge swarm of basilisks with a Ring of Sacrifice on, I'm pretty positive, and it just dropped my souls and kept the ring intact. Am I inventing the memory of having the ring on, or is this actually A Thing?
