  • Great Farron Dart inflicts (Spell Buff x 0.59) magic damage before resistances.
  • The damage is low, but is very fast and costs little FP, making it very spammable and good for harassment

      People give a lot of flak for this thing's poor damage, but there's something to be said for being the fastest spell in the game. It also makes invaders angry, and therefore, stupid. Pester them with this until they start going for big, dumb, unsafe attacks, swap over to Chaos Bed Vestiges or Crystal Soul Spear when they're off-guard and melt their health bars like sugar in hot coffee.

        It actually exceeded my expectations as it's useful for both chip DMG as well a finisher in a similar vein as throwing knives but with slightly better dmg and tracking

          Great source of chip damage at PvP. I usually deal slightly over 100 damage to players with this spell depending on their absorption.

            Just killed Yhorm with this. 30 int 30 faith crystal chime, all magic boosting items equiped + red tear stone ring. 120 dmg per headshot. Staggers him after a few casts (20 or so) -> riposte. took me 6 minutes on ng+

            • Easily one of the best spells in the game. It's the fastest offense Spell, and will hit better than a Crystal Hail or Farron Hail, there's more mobility in a Farron Dart than a Farron Hail.

                This shouldn't your main source of dmg. You should use it after casting homing soul mass to force the player to dodge. The soul mass may catch them while they are rolling. You should also use it finish off people who have a smidget of health left. Overall you can use it to whittle down their health periodically to keep up the pressure. But if you are looking for damage, this spell is not your thing. Think of these as throwing knives in the form of sorcery. It's like a church guardian shiv, except it does magic damage while also having homing properties also meaning that it is not 100% blockable.

                  This spell is not intended to be your main source of damage, it's a support spell which you can use to punish healers and/or runners. If you want DMG, then go for a Soul Spear or a Heavy soul arrow.

                    One dart does around 80 dmg to an armored target in PvP, 140dmg max vs low defense on a 60 int build with both sorcery rings, magic clutch, dusk crown and scholar's candle stick. Way too low when you consider just how much was invested into being a dedicated sorcerer. Needs a serious buff, should do atleast 140dmg to medium magic defense target and around 190-200 to low magic defense for it to be worth being attuned. On the plus side it's pretty quick and can punish ultra great sword whiffs, when you're out of range for your main weapon, still gimmiks tho when throwing knives can do the same thing...
