Twisted Wall of Light
Lost sorcery from Oolacile, land of ancient golden sorceries. Distorts light in order to deflect magic.
A closely-guarded light manipulation spell that contorts the very fabric of fundamental laws, negating magic by denying its claim to physicality.
- This spell casts a near-invisible 'wall' of light particles for a duration of roughly 3 seconds. During this time, any spell-based projectile cast at the player will be deflected around them.
- It functions like the Weapon Art Spell Parry, but lasts much longer.
- It can be used to completely avoid the damage of the dangerous "Arrow Barrage" spell cast by Aldrich, Devourer of Gods. Once you see Aldrich cast this spell in his second phase, simply jog out of his melee range and let your stamina max out. About one second before the barrage hits you, start casting Twisted Wall of Light. Keep recasting it until the barrage stops following you and goes off on its own. The only danger to you during that time are his soul spears, which can occasionally clip you even though they are redirected, dodge them if necessary. (I tested this with Heretic's Staff, at 12 Dex and was able to pull it off very reliably.)
- The spell was previously a Hex in Dark Souls 2, under the name Twisted Barricade. Twisted Wall of Light and Twisted Barricade are essentially the same except Twisted Wall of Light is gold instead of black and lasts 2 seconds longer than Twisted Barricade.
