Farron Dart is a Sorcery in Dark Souls 3. To cast a sorcery, you must use a Staff or Special Weapons that can cast Sorceries.
Variation of Soul Arrow developed by sorcerers of the Undead Legion of Farron.
Fire a soul dart.
Well known among the Farron sorceries, it is learned far and wide due to its ease of use.
- Bought from the Shrine Handmaid and Yoel of Londor for 1,000 souls. It is also sold by Orbeck of Vinheim for 500 souls.
- Farron Dart inflicts (Spell Buff x 0.52) magic damage before resistances.
- Deals low damage, but is the fastest spell in the game and costs little FP
- Its cast is near instant and combos, using the same "moveset" as Throwing Knives.
- Has a direct upgrade, the Great Farron Dart.

This spell is actually an utility spell, meaning you use if for its secondary effect and not for its damage output.
- You can use it as a replacement for throwing knives that cost no souls to replenish.
- It can be used to stop enemies/players from healing.
- It can be used as a roll stopper if you time it right.
- If you got the binoculars, you can aim and aggro stuff with precision (like a bow, but no arrow wasted)
- Low cost and low requirement makes it viable even for low int builds.
This spell actually has a great use: spell swap.
Imaging casting Boulder Heave with the same cast time as this.
And you only need 3 focus to cast any spell, which doesn't take too long to recover with a simple weapon.
(Spell swap does consume the full FP of the spell swapped to, but you only need enough FP to cast the first spell)
So, this or gr8 farron dart?
The Broken Straight Sword of spells , a must have !
More cost efficient than great farron dart?
Use it to kill a tears of denial user and then point down for laughs
Does massive damage to my brain cells
more like giant shart
I've beaten dark souls 3 more times than I can count. I can kill nameless king with my fists, but this... This has been the worst run I've ever done. Standard at first, kill gundyr with my fists, but once I actually got Farron dart, I think I was honestly weaker. Slightly better damage, but it cost magic to attack. I had to sit in high wall, farming to get enough fp to kill vordt. I am currently at twin princes with 99 attunement and intelligence, and I run out of fp getting through lorian. I have no healing estus since I have to dedicate all of them to more fp. I hate this spell and I return to my fist only playthrough now. Goodbye, Farron shart
Breaks the game, way too much damage should be removed
For tickling the hollow soldiers in the High Wall
Good vs tears of denial if the enemy doesn’t expect it
dles as much damage as a farron fart
*pew pew pew*
repeat for 10 minutes until target gives up or gets pelted to death
Wow... Sorcery sure is scary.
It appears the farron dart is superior to great farron dart. I tested the damage on Thralls in earthen peak at NG. The character was using Golden ritual spear +10 at 60 faith (220 spell buff) and wearing only Bellowing dragoncrest ring for spell damage increase. Farron dart dealt 70 damage while great version dealt 88. However Farron dart uses less FP and Stamina. Now the fp difference is not important but the stamina cost difference is. With 120 stamina my character was able to roll 7 times consecutively, was able to cast great farron dart 8 times and farron dart 9 times. In a situation where you are trying to catch someone with a bit of health but rolling around like there is no tomorrow, farron dart will be more efficient.
This is literally the ultimate spell in the entire game. You can use every single magic with this and the Great version. I mean, you'll be an ultimate scrub, but who cares. Git gud.
basically a magic throwing knife. more of a utility than a weapon, but handy for isolating enemies or finishing off enemies near death.
An amazibg spell that betrays one of its own purposes due to catalysts. It has an intelligence requirement of "8" and the catalyst with lowest intelligence requirement has a requirement of "10". Such amazing game design :D
Can be used to psych out an opponent if done right, but not that useful. An actual throwing knife is way better damage wise and the speed isnt far behind. There are better spells for similar uses. This is just garbage.
This is not a main fighting ability but i realised something, with a bit of dex and sage ring it is hyper fast so it can knock off estus chuggers quick but also is basically a magic throwing knife, allowing you to spam after fleeing opponents or that cheeky last hit.You could use it as well as a fake out, spam this and then mid cast change to a hard hitter, most are going to charge you or use up stamina dodging the wrong attack.
useful for interrupting estus recovery?
might as well just throw your shoe at the enemy
So... this usefull for anything other than pulling and being annoying? Does it scale really well? Because it hits about as hard as a spitball.
I feel like this will be my favourite spell
