Heysel Pick is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Choice weapon of Yellowfinger Heysel, a Finger of Rosaria and xanthous scholar.

It`s both a weapon and sorcery staff. The gold specks are remnants of lost sorceries.

Skill: Steady Chant
For a short moment, boost the strength of sorceries.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused but can be Buffed by using Steady Chant.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Functions as a weapon and a catalyst for Sorceries.
  • At 60 INT it has a spellbuff of 208 when fully upgraded.
  • Due to doubling as a catalyst, this weapon has no heavy attacks, but can perform a jumping attack.
  • Using Steady Chant both increases the damage of the spells and the weapon itself.
  • Can true combo into Soul Greatsword or Old Moonlight, provided the player's cast speed is fast enough.
  • Also combos into Great Soul Arrow, Farron Flashsword, and Great Farron Dart, but not anything equivalent to or slower than Heavy Soul Arrow.
  • Can technically combo into Deep Soul and Great Deep Soul, but you need to stand close.

      This wiki says that you CAN do a jumping attack with this weapon, but how? Every time I try to it just casts whatever spell I have equipped. I tried doing the running jump attack (running and then tapping R2) but it just stopped me from running to cast a spell. I don't think I'll ever get used to this weapon tbh.

        maybe I am the only one that underestimated this weapon without knowing it could cast spells because I thought this was some ordinary weapon :'(

          This is the ultimate sorcery tool.
          Especially when it comes to PvP:

          -Has a true combo with spells
          -Good damage
          -Good stunlock power
          -Good poise frames
          -Good rollcatch animation
          -WA buffs both spells & weapon
          -Thrust damage (Good for trades)
          -Low stat requirements
          -Low weight
          -Can be obtained really soon
          -Good both as main and off-hand

          Basically, as a pure sorcerer it’s either this or the Court Sorcerer’s Staff.
          The staff deals slightly more damage, but that’s it, doesn’t offer anything else.

          • Outside of true combos or such, I think this weapon has nice PvP potential. Since it's a pure Thrust weapon, every physical attack can benefit from the Leo Ring, which makes trading with straight swords more punishing. The 2H R1 stuns pretty well, and with its mixed damage, it's harder to reliably block the damage. Also, since it's a catalyst, you can cast a homing soulmass to force opponents into rolling while you ready another, heavier spell like Soul Greatsword or Soul Spear. This also benefits from fighting parry spammers, since a whiffed parry gives you time to cast and react. And finally , the WA buffs both the spells and the melee, so you can sacrifice a bit of FP for essentially a reusable Pale Pine Bundle.

            Don't sleep on the Heysel Pick, folks; it's a great multi-tool with a medium-high skill ceiling. Fighting with it has been some of the most fun I've had in a while.

              This weapon cant cast Magic Shield even though it has an animation for it. Your shield will not buff or turn blue.

                If you glitch with this and think you are a “skilled” player, then you are only fooling yourself. Don’t glitch boys and girls, don’t glitch....

                • "Can true combo into Soul Greatsword or Old Moonlight, provided the player's cast speed is fast enough"

                  how fast is fast enough, exactly? will sage ring be enough, or do i need to level DEX?

                    Oh FromSoft, you can't make anything viable without giving it some kind of combo, can you? The Heysel Pick doesn't need to combo into soul GS spells.

                    • I'd love to know why when I revisit certain pages certain comments are gone. I've got a good memory and I left some myself that are gone. So either they're getting false flagged or removed. I pointed out misinformation on the Pick "thumbnail" and that the Int Scaling listed is for the Catalyst Spellbuff. Not seemingly for Magic damage inflicted by the weapon.

                        Wish we had the Blue Flame instead. It's okay if it has the same stats. Just wanting a better skin instead of a weird pick for a sorcerer weapon.

                        • "Alternatively, will drop from the worm-like enemy in Rosaria's room if it appears." ¿IF? ¿So does the worm appear at random or what triggers it?

                            Loved the MGS across all titles in the series, but this tops that, doubling as a catalyst and all. I like magic, and I like playing aggressive. This fills that niche.

                            • This is an amazing catalyst for people wanting to try a "melee sorcerer" or magic knight, since it actually has a legitimate spell combo in its R1 > Old Moonlight combination

                                you can get 2 picks in one playthrough. Kill heysel (ember up!) in top swamp, and then again in lower (toxic) swamp before going to the cathedral of the deep. The second pick will drop from the slug creature outside Rosaria's bedchamber.

                                  Since this weapon is Thrust based, I can only assume its regular R1 attack stak with Leo Ring. But does the Leo ring also stacks when Soul arrows are shot and its an Counter attack ?

                                      I got Heysel Pick and Xanthous crown from the slug creature beside Rosarias bed? I hadn't killed it the entire game due to the fact the creature was passive to me. Finally before heading to endgame I noticed I didn't have a Red Sign Soapstone and went to go get it from this creature. After killing it I got the previously mentioned items instead. I had already fought Yellowfinger Heysel and received these items so these are duplicates.

                                        Heysel Pick can be buffed. I had Shield of Want equipped in left hand and hit L2 to use the right hand weapon special ability. So it cast great magic weapon on the pick itself (my RH weapon).

                                          Try using r1 than r2 with farron flashsword. Absolutely wrecks in pvp. Nobody ever sees it coming there is 0 cast time 0 tell and people think "oh hey im out of range! Nah.

                                            I didn't kill Yellowfinger Heysel, and this weapon and the Xanthous crown dropped off a man-grub in Rosaria's chamber late game.
