Elementary, yet practical sorcery from long ago.

Offers greater power but slower casting time, entailing a vulnerability that makes this sorcery trickier to handle.



Acquired From




  • Heavy Soul Arrow inflicts (Spell Buff x 2.15) magic damage before resistances.
  • Arguably the most efficient sorcery in the game in terms of damage per FP cost, having a greater efficiency than all the other soul arrows. However, it has a fairly slow casting speed, making it poor for harassment and combat.
    • Due to the slow cast speed, it's best used at range to lure enemies and finish foes before they can reach you.
  • Has an upgrade in Great Heavy Soul Arrow.

        Based on the numbers I've pulled up via soulsplanner, taking into account FP cost per cast, at 60 INT/30 ATT with the Court Sorcerer staff this spell trumps Great Heavy Soul Arrow for damage efficiency, doing 10845 damage per FP bar compared to 9602.9 damage per FP bar from Great Heavy Soul Arrow. This is before defenses are taken into account however which may (though I doubt it) have an effect
