Notes

  • This spell casts a near-invisible 'wall' of light particles for a duration of roughly 3 seconds. During this time, any spell-based projectile cast at the player will be deflected around them.
  • It can be used to completely avoid the damage of the dangerous "Arrow Barrage" spell cast by Aldrich, Devourer of Gods. Once you see Aldrich cast this spell in his second phase, simply jog out of his melee range and let your stamina max out. About one second before the barrage hits you, start casting Twisted Wall of Light. Keep recasting it until the barrage stops following you and goes off on it's own. The only thing of danger to you during that time are his soul spears, which can occasionally clip you even though they are redirected, dodge them if necessary. (I tested this with Heretic's Staff, at 12 Dex and was able to pull it off very reliably.)

      This spell is actually very good, especially against Aldrich. The only problem it has, is that "magical" types of ennemies, are so rare and far appart from eatch others. It's not worth losing an attunement slot for it. I often use it against Aldrich but that's pretty much the only time I use it.

        Oddly (and amusingly) enough, this spell deflects YOUR OWN spells as well, if you cast them back to back. Tested by throwing chaos fire orbs and black fire orbs immediately after casting twisted wall (like, queuing up the actions with a catalyst in each hand) and the fireball appears several feet to the right of my character. Interestingly, the trajectory itself is perfectly normal, it's just the starting position that's different. The damage appears to work as normal, but very often will this effect cause your spell to miss, or hit an obstacle. Or can this spell interaction perhaps be used for some god-tier throwing spells from behind cover strategies? This spell has never really seemed worth the trouble to me, but I think there's some fun things to be done here.

          "Two Sunlight Medals can be obtained if following Sirris' questline while having the Warrior of Sunlight pledge equipped. "

            It is effectively a "light" version of twisted barricade from Dark Souls 2, but with lower requirements.
            It even has the same icon, albeit with a different color.

              Has anyone tested this against soul stream? I assume the stream would just blast through and hit you, but the thought of it deflecting of in a random direction amuses me.

                While it isn't super useful in PVE, there is nothing funnier than watching a caster waste their fp trying to hit you while you have this

                  This spell comes in pretty handy vs Aldrich, took me a couple of attempts to practice the timing, but one you got it down it nullifies his arrow rain spell.<br/><br/>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8v5AC0O3Zg

                    In other words, Crystal soul spear, and maybe soul stream? It's like cast light. Use it for one part of the game, and swap it because you don't have enough attunement slots. I even stopped using cast light, because, you could just go invisible, mask your sounds, and run pass everything.

                      reminds me of the silver pendent's use when fighting manus. Manus's AOE dark beads always crushes me, until i found out about the pendent. This works the same way i suppose, a boss has an AOE spell you cant or have a hard time dodging? cast this and dont. <br/>As most spells are quite easy to dodge, casting this in a duel might be less useful.

                        it wont reflect sorceries back at the caster, it will just pretty much nullify them if you time this spell right.<br/>In order words, just *****ing roll instead.
