Acquired From

  • Found in: The Dreg Heap Area in The Ringed City DLC. After you see the first Cursed Angel, proceed forward through the arched doorway ahead. Looking towards the 2 knights at the end of the room, take the arched doorway to the right. Turn right and head up to the back of the area and through another arched doorway. Proceed up the stairs and into through the doorway into a dead end room. Attack the wall on the left to reveal an illusionary wall. Proceed up the stairs until you come to the final room. The sorcery (Great Soul Dregs) is at the back of the room next to the Murkman Sorcerer: Video Example




  • The homing and flight speed are extremely similar to Great Deep Soul, if not identical.
  • Has a slightly longer range than the Great Deep Soul, making it ideal for sniping enemies.
  • The projectile size is enormous, and its sheer size can make it difficult to roll through.
  • Damage output is roughly 20% higher than Affinity, and can hit 1,000 damage per cast without much effort. 
  • However, with some effort that spell is devastating against most enemies, especially those weak to Dark damage, as it will deal nearly 2,000 damage per shot.

          The Soul Dreg Spells are very good against A.I. Humans or Invaders, they are programmed to dodge immediately once you cast something. Since Deep Soul, Great Deep Soul, and Great Soul Dregs all have slow acceleration at the beginning of their cast and they have good tracking the A.I. will more often then not dodge into it or dodge left or right too early and get caught.

            Great Soul Dregs, 40 - 60 Intelligence, Young Dragon Ring, Bellowing Dragon Ring, Dark Clutch Ring, +10 Murky Longstaff, Blindfold Mask... That's what we call a *****ing cannon, ladies and gentlemen

              I have a +9 murky longstaff, bellowing ring, 50 int, and this thing only does like 600 damage and like 250 damage to bosses. What am I doing wrong?

                Since it's not immediately obvious, it should probably be noted that this spell deals pure dark damage. Tested with and without magic clutch ring and crown of dusk on, damage numbers were the same. Sorcery boosting rings, however, still affect it, since those strengthen sorceries in general, rather than magic damage in particular. So basically, to get the most out of this spell, you'll need high INT and at least high-ish Faith, the Izalith staff, both sorcery rings, dark clutch ring, and finally the blindfold mask.

                  Izalith +5 staff (buffed) in left hand, clerics candlestick in right, dark clutch, young and bellowing dragoncrest rings wearing blindfold mask= total destruction.

                    Trouble with this spell is that you can't see what your enemy is doing, it completely obscures him. I suppose in pvp that is balanced by him not being able to see you, but in pve it sees you just fine. You won't know if the enemy is charging you or fighting an npc or doing nothing. With very large bosses, like dancer, that's not a problem, but smaller enemies it is.

                      Does anyone wonder what it would actually feel like to get hit by this? Or most other sorcerers for that matter.

                        Guy hides behind a dude with magic shield on a havel shield and shoots these things at me through a narrow hallway essentially *****ed. Havel guy randomly sometimes wrath of gods to keep me away. Iron fleshed myself to push through almost killed caster but then got wrathed just a little too much...

                          This isn't getting nerfed imho
                          That's kind of the point of the whole DLC thing.. we give the devs more cash and in return we get +3 rings, effective armor pieces, and OP dope ass spells that wreck poor fags that can't buy it or aren't used to fighting it.
