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.

      It actually helps if you are invaded phantom spammer. When your phantoms die there is a cooldown on seeing summon signs again. Use Seek Guidance and voila!

        This miracle should make the health bars of all phantoms in your world visible for a few seconds, sort of like the floating eyes when you enter a world as a blue. Use it as an invader to hunt down the host or spot a gank ambush, use it as a host to prepare for an invader who is hiding. Lasts only a few seconds so it doesn't completely remove any possibility of being sneaky, but can give you a general idea of where they're at so you don't spend 3 minutes running the wrong direction. Make it actually useful rather than flat out dumb as*****.

          So this miracle was just as useless in Dark Souls 1, but in Dark Souls 2 someone turned it around and actually made it handy for discovering illusory walls; then along comes Miyazaki, removes that feature and once again this spell goes back to being worthless. Why? Because FromSoft had to cater to the people who whined about DS1 being better than DS2 in every aspect; people who apparently believe is way more fun to have your character idiotically hit or roll against every suspicious wall in the game than look for hidden messages on the floor, and because Dark Souls 2 was such an unfortunate and disgraceful sequel that the only way to save the franchise from completely going down the drain was to make the third installment as similar as possible as the first one while disregarding even the things that Dark Souls 2 did right. That's why Dark Souls 3 features a disappointing New Game+ that is just as unrewarding as in Dark Souls 1; there are no Bonfire Ascetics, no Simpleton and Skeptic spices, no Dark Phantoms, no NPC that shows your rank within every covenant, not even a recording of how many times you've died in the game. That, fellow Ashen Ones, is Miyazaki's grand return to the series for you.

              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

                      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...

                              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?
