Aural Decoy is a sorcery in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Sorcery developed by a certain surreptitious
sorcerer at Vinheim Dragon School.
Distracts foes with a distant sound.
The sound carries with it a strangely infectious
resonance that may cause one to stray from their
post and expose their back.


Sold by both Yoel or Orbeck for 2,000 souls.


Distracts foes with a distant sound.


Single playerEdit

Aural Decoy has a lot of potential in PvE. It can be used to distract enemies, allowing the caster to easily backstab, or outright sneak past, the affected enemy. Care should be taken, as the effect does not last for long.

Online gameplayEdit

Aural Decoy has no effect in PvP, serving as little more than an annoyance or way to let players locate each other.
