Curse

Curse

 


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.
  • Luck investment provides more curse resistance compared to levelling other attributes.

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.

      You say something about gank squads or one shot true combos like gael s or splitleaf s and no one bats an eye. You say something about a weapon inflicting curse status and everyone loses their minds.

        I notice though that when I lift my curse with the Purging Stone, I'm unhollowed.. Does lifting the curse help with connectiviry to other worlds or is it really just you're "hollow" form until purging stone's used?

          3 years later I just found out the ring of sacrifice does not work on a cursed death vs normal death. Shame it had to be 400000 souls on new game.

            For some reason, when I used Flash Sweat I was instantly slowed (couldn't run ) and had every status under the sun building up; curse, frostbite and toxic to name a few.

              atleast its not ds1 where u find a basilisk get cursed and have to go and find a purging stgone or ingward. that was a pain cuz u had to go through newlondo whilst crippled or spend 3000/6000 souls, if it happened early u likely would have to farm souls so thank god the curse in ds3 isnt the one in ds1

                  There should be an anti-gank covenant where you inflict this effect to any host or phantom near you, getting stronger with each phantom summoned (including the blue ones)

                    Nowhere does it explain how to get rid of course other than the wax. I'm in the demon area and no one is helpful at all with all your stupid mumbo jumbo about stats. Who cares. How do I get rid of it?

                      Why does it say that Luck doesn't increase curse resistance. despite that being easily proven wrong? On the luck part of the wiki it even shows a convenient table for it. While my character, which is on a luck build, already has high curse resist. It has 35 luck, and when I put on a hollow infused Llewellyn shield +6, that makes my luck increase by 4. Every stat except curse goes up by exactly 4, but curse goes up by 16.
                      How did anyone make that mistake?

                        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+.
