      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.

                  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.
