Miracle of stray souls. Displays more help from other worlds and reveals summon signs without using an ember.

Faith serves as a guide for clerics, meaning they should have no need for secondhand wisdom.

Be that as it may, this miracle has been passed down from soul to soul, providing a tiny ray of hope for the lost.

      Seek Guidance is just a spell to use to see any more messages that have not shown up, but ARE THERE, when the player walks around. This may be because of too many messages on the same area or being too far away. Doesn't matter though, as messages can only be seen when you are near it and when the player who has laid them is also online. Thousands upon hundreds of messages laid across typical and even far off areas, or areas where it's on top of a stair or ledge.
      Another item also casts this spell, but you need to hold it to have the effect still play, Scholars Candlestick.

          Waste of Slots.
          Use Miracle to see summon sign, but you can only summon with Ember anyways.

            To everyone complaining in comments its main purpose is when at 99 hollowed summon signs are obscured so this lets you see more signs without paying velka statue

              GG From, remove the one awesome thing that Dark Souls 2 did with this spell.05 Oct 2016 06:01  

              So many steps backwards in 3. Why did you take out the "find the host" ability? It made this spell actually useful in more than set scenarios of revealing messages that most players eventually learn on their own. It was an actually GOOD utility miracle that wasn't heals or buffs. smh

                I get it but...21 Sep 2016 16:41  

                I get the point behind this thing, but even if you use it as intended... you know, seeing if there's summon signs and then embering up to use them...Well, you're just as likely to actually have the summons work as you are having the summons continually time out until you get invaded, die, and then have to recast the miracle to see if there's summon signs still there.Although I guess if the only alternative to having this spell is to not have it... well, might as well just have it. I suppose it is more useful than things like lightning storm and WotG, in a way.

                  What a stupid unusable spell. Anyone thinks it'd still be fair to summon without ember using this spell since 1 it requires an attunement slot and 2 you don't get the hit points buff.

                    Why would anyone post a question thinking they would wait for a response, instead of just reading a few posts first?! Lmao so many idiots...

                      Applications of this miracle?01 May 2016 11:39  

                      So..... i'm just wondering if anyone has thought to see if this miracle can nullify "illusion" effects for the one it's effecting. Like the Chameleon, hidden body, hidden weapon, and untrue ring effects. Possibly even the obscuring ring? Would be interesting to see.

                        what is the point of using this spell to see signs without an ember if you still need the ember to summon them?

                          "Displays more help from other worlds" Does that mean it increases the Level range to see more peoples Soapstones or what?

                            Why would they let you see summon signs when you are not in Ember Form if they will just slap across the hand when you try to summon them? This would have been a good "Easy Mode" for the game.

                              It has its uses20 Apr 2016 06:13  

                              For people who don't use a wiki, it lets you see the signs so you know whether or not you should spend an ember. Or maybe you're looking for someone in particular?
