Focus ConsumptionFocus Cost 25
Attunement SlotsSlots Used 1
Requirements 15 Intelligence
Type Turns body nearly invisible



Lost sorcery from Oolacile, land of ancient golden sorceries. Turns body nearly invisible.

Although perfect invisibility is unachievable due to the risk of dissipation, the caster need only stand still for a moment to blend in to environs with astounding camouflage.


Acquired From



  • Lasts 15 seconds.
  • Enemies can still detect your footsteps and will attack if you get too close to them.
  • Using Spook or Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring together with this spell will make you nearly undetectable to enemies.
  • Using Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring and Untrue White Ring together with this spell will allow you to disguise as a ghost.
  • Duration can also be increased with the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.
  • Ideal for blockade running, getting to bosses' rooms, etc. Also very helpful for sorcerers to get into the right casting position. Since your cover is not blown while range attacking most enemies, this spell is very useful for one-shotting enemies with ranged attacks (e.g. the Deacons in Irithryll).

      I just used ithryl straight sword. Quick enough to get a few hits in and do frost damage. Exact method I used on the main boss Dragonslayer

        You haven't played PvP enough if you haven't had some galaxy-brained genius run around the corner to put this thing on, and then casually stroll towards you in an extremely sad attempt at flanking/backstabbing.

          Damn, only 15 seconds? I really though it was like 12 seconds... Using Lingering Dragoncrest really doesn't help either... This is still a great spell to use when you want to run through an area (Easy Mode Sorcery) Using Slumbering and Hidden Body you can run through Snowfield easily and, yes even though you can skip Snowfield by going up to the left on the hill with the wolves, still very fun going through those Millwood Knights and sneaking up the Tower using Slumbering Dragoncrest ring and Hidden Body to go up there loot.

              combined with lingering dragoncrest ring, slumbering dragon ring, aldrich saphire, hornet ring, chaos dagger and raport it creates the funniest run ive ever had.

                I got invaded by someone who was invisible (fog ring, hidden body) but when I got close to them I couldn't even target them...they said that hidden body got changed to that. I feel like thats fishy. Any other information?

                  It's worth mentioning that some enemies can see through it and some seem to have a bigger detection radius than others. The bald dead people with daggers after dragon barracks run straight for you.

                    Use hidden body, lingering dragoncrest ring slumbering dragoncrest ring, and aldrichs sapphire. The sapphire allows you to backstab and get your fp back that you used for the spell, also this spell is great for running through playthroughs quickly

                      I found this spell really good for speed runs. You can run past most of the enemies without harm. I saw someone beat the game in 1 hour and 10 minutes.

                        This, in no way, is anywhere near "fully tested" by me or anything, but I have been using this in tandem with Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring on my sorcerer playthrough. I knew the spell didn't work on bosses, but out of habit I kept this buff up for the whole Crystal Sage fight. Anyways, to get to my point, I am pretty sure when the 2nd phase of the fight hit, Hidden Body kept the "fake sages" from noticing me at all. As I said, this needs more testing, as it could have been a number of things keeping them from targeting me (I had the summoned NPC with me during the fight), but from what I could tell, during phase 2 ONLY the main Crystal Sage was casting at me, which just made the fight feel like it was all just a big phase 1.

                          one of the new patches makes hidden body completely useless when summoned as a red phantom or white phantom. can someone test this when you are an invader? and host

                            Amazing spell in both PVE and PVP

                            In PVE it must be used with spook or slumbering dragon crest ring. Enemies won't even notice you unless you hit them

                            In PVP homing spells won't attack you until the spell wears off and enemy won't be able to clearly see what you are doing.

                              Players looking for an interesting run equip the slumbering dragon crest ring, then the untrue white ring the obscuring ring and finally the spell and spook for good measure. As a summon or invader you look just like the ghosts around the bonfire and catch so many off guard

                                When this spell is cast, homing spells like Affinity, Soulmass and Crystal Soulmass will not trigger and attack you ._. great. . .

                                  When entering the Cathedral of the deep area while I had Hidden Body active, there were entities and items missing. The swordsman to the left of the the first bonfire was missing, as well as the warrior with the spider shield and the estus flask shard was missing

                                    Best PvP spell31 May 2016 07:09  

                                    This tricks so many people into easy baits/parrys. While you can still see someone casting a spell it is extremely difficult to see a weapon swap. I've baited tons of people into a small shield parry and Moonlight Greatsword riposte, easy 1k damage without the hornet ring. There are so many tricks to this spell it's extremely useful and wildly entertaining.
