Affinity is a hex in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

An advanced hex based on an ancient sorcery.
It appears to be a manifestation of emotion. Perhaps of hate, perhaps of love.


General informationEdit

Affinity is almost identical to the Pursuers sorcery from Dark Souls. Casting the hex will cause a number of small, black orbs to appear around the player's head. Should an enemy come within close proximity, the orbs will launch themselves towards the target, growing significantly in size, and possess extremely good homing capabilities; however, the orbs may scatter in favor of different targets, should more than one be near the player.

The easiest way to dodge the projectiles is by simply rolling toward them as they home in on the player. It is significantly easier to dodge them than Homing Soulmass which launch towards enemies at a much higher speed.

As the Intelligence stat is increased, the caster will gain more orbs. These milestones are shown here:
