Sacrilegious miracle of the Sable Church of Londor.

Bless corpses, transforming them into traps.

Londor, the Hollow Realm, is a society of undead, comprised of the corpses and shades of those who led unsavory lives. Is such blessing really something one must ponder?


Acquired From



  • This spell deals dark damage, and as such will be slightly more powerful when cast with the Sunless Talisman or Caitha's Chime with high Intelligence and Faith.
  • When cast with any other talisman or chime on a character with high Faith and no Intelligence, this spell will deal slightly less damage.
  • Corpses will explode after a short delay, and disappear after exploding. "Traps" is probably not the best word to describe it, as the corpses will explode after casting regardless of whether or not anything is actually in range.
  • Will not work unless character can interact with enemies in the world. For example, an invader will not be able to effectively cast this miracle on corpses unless the host has used a Seed of a Giant Tree.
  • The spell will only affect up to 3 corpses at a time.

      Literally just make it so invaders can use it and it'd be meta af. Can you imagine? Being able to blow up any dead hollows in the area? Ds2 was like this, but ds3 would be worse with how everything is laid out.

        Without this being put down in an area before battle, (similar to how V.o.S SHOULD WORK) it's pointless. Without that and(or) Proximity fuses it's worthless. It's not worth the Slot/Cast in Battle. Only use it has is Cosmetic; Remove bodies for captures.

          Praise Miyazaki! Three games in this franchise and the geniuses behind it still haven't figured out that utterly worthless crap like this spell is, in fact, unnecessary for a game and doesn't need to be thrown in with no attempt to make it worthwhile. You'd think maybe one person could have come up with literally any alternative for this or a way to make it at least USABLE. Nah, instead let's just waste people's time and put our effort into coding and animating something nobody will ever use or care to use! AAA+

            yet another one of fromsofts jokes. there was so many whiners from ds2 saying magic is too powerful, now all the spells suck.

              This'd be nice if you could use it while invading without the host having to seed anything. Would be neat against gankers who usually clear out an area first.

                “Hi! I’m Billy Hollow and I’m here to tell you about an amazing new dark miracle just released by the Sable Church that will clean up your corpse infested home with just one cast! That’s right, just one cast!

                For example - You’ve killed all those pesky hollows loitering all around and feel like inviting over some Sun Bros, but your area is covered in dead hollows! That’s a big problem! Aside from ugliness, they tend to cling to anyone who walks by and flop all around like a rag doll, disgusting!

                You want to clean up the place but it take hours to try and move the rag doll corpses to pile, by time you got all them hollows stacked you’re too tired to do anything else, major let down! With this new dark miracle, just cast it upon the ground and presto! Those unsightly Hollow corpses turn into smoke leaving the area clean!

                Order now and for just one payment of 2500 souls, you get this dark miracle along with a customer satisfaction guarantee!

                ORDER RIGHT NOW!”

                (Footnote announcement) General side effect may include instant death for Mad phantoms upon contact of blessed corpses, The Church of Londor is not responsible for any untimely deaths of users or invaders when using this miracle. User caution is advised!

                Lol! Sorry, it’s the only reason I use this miracle. Just to remove the dead bodies and really nothing else. It would have been better if the bodies didn’t vanish but oh well.

                  the damage is amazing but it just cant really be setup well, I think they should make it work like it in did in ds2, still 3 enemies at a time but like, if you kill an invader it will leave a "body" for everyone who was currently in the game. that would make it amazing even with only being able to use it once per body

                    Oh the setup on dark souls 2. Kill 10 or 12 of the royal swordsman in the Bastille, get invaded and lure them in the middle, then instant kill.

                      Is the damage affected by rings? It should make certain enemys explode on contact. I can't seem to have fun with this spell

                        Why is this so useless?
                        they could have had dark miracle like resonant soul and great resonant soul instead of this....

                          Used to use this hex to deal with those annoying lion warriors. Pile up the bodies and BOOM!Hopefully it still has its kick.
