Notes

  • Unlike its counterpart in Dark Souls II, this miracle lasts indefinitely.
  • When the user reaches 0 HP, the miracle is activated and the player automatically goes back to 1 HP, using up the spell.
  • Saves from lethal fall damage, unless the drop is too high or is a bottomless pit.
  • Overwritten by Power Within, Deep Protection, (Great) Magic BarrierStone Flesh, Sunlight Straight Sword, Carthus Beacon, and Pontiff's Right Eye.
  • Anything else removes the visual effects but keeps the buff.
  • The "flame" particle floating in your body can be clearly seen, even under the effects of Young White Branches, Chameleon, the Obscuring Ring and Hidden Body.
  • Changing areas will remove this miracle's buff if it was used beforehand. Additionally, quitting a game with it cast will result in it removal of it's buff the next time the game is loaded.

Protip: 

  • If you've got at least 10 FTH, you can use this spell by doing this: Equip the Priestess Ring, now equip this miracle at a bonfire. Use it, then switch your rings around and rest again. Congratulations, you've got this Miracle at barely any cost in Stat distibution and no cost in FP. You monster.

      IF only the duel charm can dispel this. Seriously, you can cast this for free in most cases of pvp and pve due to its duration and where you start off in an area. At least allow a person the ability to get rid of it with a duel charm. Sacred Oath is just as costly and comes much later in the game, but it can get dispelled by a charm along with multiple buffs stacked at once. Why is this the special snowflake?

        As much as I liked ToD. I saw it as a crutch and it messed up my playstyle so I've abandoned it outside of my PvE character.
        I feel they should increase the requirements. 30 faith would be ideal. Because 15 faith? All a melee character needs is 10 faith and the priestess ring.
        They had it fine in DS2. Meant it can only be used at the last second and against tough bosses. But yet again, From implements another thing not needed.

          I don't know if this has been previously discussed but I noticed that when I use ToD, I can un-equip it at the bonfire and switch it out for some other spell and the ToD effects are still there until death even if it has been removed from your attunement slots after you cast it. test it out, I just did it. Watch them end up fixing it just cause of my big mouth lmao I don't care I am gg...

            If you are a warrior and you want ToD then put 1 pnt into FTH, 1 pnt into ATN (so that you have 10 FTH and 7 ATN). Then put on Princess Ring, Dusk Ring, and Darkmoon ring. Cast ToD, then switch out your rings to what you normally want. Not so gud in arena since everyone seems to rush you (gg no honor). But if you are fast enough then you can have ToD for free and just waste 2 lvl ups.

              More useful for PVE than PVP. If you suck at PVP, this miracle won't save you. A Caestus used for parrying is more effective against scrubs with R1 weapons than this, but for oneshotkill fights like say, Midir on ng+7, this is extremely useful.

                Only op if someones has the regeneration ring or ethereal oak shield or some active healing miracle equiped. Other than that just spam the hell out of trowing knives or the Church Guardian shiv which has insane tracking. p.s TOD is easy to counter if you know what your doing

                  Anyone else having the issue of the spell being active but you still dieing from a single lethal hit? this has happened to me twice now on hits that im positive only hit once

                    It's also overwritten by using the Sunlight Straight Sword's weapon art buff, the buff isn't overwritten by Tears though so the sequence has to be SLSS buff > Tears, I can do this with 18 attunement and the Farron Ring.

                      Don't worry guys this is just the new generation of Souls fans that came into the series in DS3. You can tell by their excessive whining and moaning about a spell that has been in the series since 2009 when Demon's Souls released.

                      God you guys are babies. whining about absolutely anything in the game that is "challenging" to counter. Instead of, you know, countering it rather than screaming "PLES NURF!"

                      • 04 Feb 2017 06:59  

                        It's funny seeing people complain about literally 1 HP, theres plenty of ways to counter this spell and it's not OP or broken you guys just need to git gud.

                          Seriously you Salty F**ks, http://demonssouls.wikidot.com/second-chance Demon Souls, the game that started it all, had the damn Miracle. Rather than complain about it, move on an understand that this is a part of the Damn game!
