Sorcery developed by a certain surreptitious sorcerer at Vinheim Dragon School.

Masks noises of the caster and prevents fall damage.

Their mastery of this sorcery alone allows Vinheim spooks to demand handsome payment for their services.


Acquired From



  • Spook is a combination of the Sorceries Hush and Fall Control from previous games.
  • Silences one's footsteps and grants immunity to fall damage.
    • The fall damage immunity only works up to a certain point. Falling into a pit or falling from a great height will kill you even with the spell active.
  • The same effect can be achieved with Silvercat Ring and Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring.
  • Works great with Hidden Body.

      D O O T. With all seriousness, there is a height limit that causes you to take damage, slumbering dragon crest ring is better for dat backstab build, and leaping feline ring allow you to survive almost any fall beside ladders with a “kill box” built into them, I.e. the water reserve ladder in irithyll, or the Faron keep ladder in the swamp area.

        There is a height limit where you'll guaranteed die no matter what, anything below this height can be negated by this spell or the silvercat ring. You can also tank the fall damage uf your hp is higher than the fall damage, raising dex lowers the amount of fall damage you take. This spell works exactly like the silvercat ring, you'll still die to any fall damage from a height that would automatically kill you such as a fall off a cliff or a fall from too high, all fall damage will be negated even if the fall would've been too much for your hp to handle if the fall isn't a guaranteed kill like off a cliff or a height too high.

            As far as I understand, this spell will save you from any fall that you WOULD HAVE survived normally (if that makes sense). If you fall from a height that would normally kill you, the spell won't save you. If it's any fall that would NOT normally kill you, then it will prevent any damage.

                  Can you use it to jump directly at the giant feet in the cathedral of the deep that tries to smash you ? This way it would be faster to deal with him

                    Does it work on the High wall of Lothric, if you jump from the rooftops to the fatty before fighting Vordt?

                      This spell is what makes Assassin the best and really ONLY class for speedrunning. The ability to to bypass so much right away is absolutely essential to shaving seconds or even minutes off a run. For example, an Assassin can cast Spook, then sprint to the lift where you first meet Seigward near the Road of Sacrifices... With this spell you can actually sprint and jump down the elevator shaft, land on the lift he's on as it's going up, and roll off onto the bottom floor before the lift ever ever comes to a stop!Gotta go fast

                        This spell is what got me through my first play through (Not sneaking past, I kill every enemy at least once). I always have it equipped!

                          I have tried it in conjunction with the Hidden Body spell, and it seem to mask your sound a bit less of wearing the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring, with Hidden Body.

                            Spooks overall is useful in many regards, however be wary of using it on lifts, high bridges, or with the intent of jumping from a height that would certainly kill you.

                              Spook during Invasions01 May 2016 12:05  

                              During 2 invasions I was involved in near the farron keep bonfire I noticed that spook won't save the invader from falling down the ladder above the bonfire. I don't know if its intentional for that but I made the jump with it then my invader attempted it and died (heard them cast spook before falling). Later I invaded someone and attempted it again and I died.

                                I have jumped off of non deadly heights and still took damage. It was a big drop but not insta kill heights just does lots of damage. So anyone have a reason why this spell does not work?

                                  Man, most speedrunners are gonna pick the assassin class just for this spell alone. Boring.

                                    No idea if it's the same for the spell itself, but the ring that gives the same effect doesn't provide perfect silence. It just lowers your sound level by one stance. So running makes as much noise as walking, walking makes as much noise as creeping, and creeping makes none at all.

                                      Not always working: falling from 50 feets once and survived, then i went to an elevator above me and died (casted the spell before to jump). Over and over again. Is there a high limit? (Don't think so) Is that an elevator bug? (Maybe the game thinks you fall down inside the black hole)
