Alluring Skulls are throwable items in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A skull resplendent in the scent of souls.
Prepared by evangelists of the Cathedral of the Deep.
Throw to shatter, spreading souls which attract enemies. Not effective for all foes.



Alluring Skulls crash upon impact after being thrown, releasing an attracting mist that draws the attention of most enemies toward its location. Most enemies will hover around or attack the mist for a short time giving the player time to flee or attack them.


  • While Alluring Skulls don't work on every enemy, including most bosses, they are an effective tool to distract the Deacons of the Deep, allowing the player to quickly attack the highlighted Deacon without much resistance.
  • One can be traded with Pickle Pee in exchange for the Hello Carving (only once per playthrough).
