Blinding Bolt is a miracle in Dark Souls II

In-Game Description

A miracle that creates a giant soul mass and transforms it into a lightning-spouting orb of light.
Created in ancient times by the God of Sun, but later forbidden by the same deity. Was it to protect the world from hatred, or sorrow?


Received by trading the Old King Soul and 10,000 souls with Straid of Olaphis


When used, a small ball of energy floats a few feet away from the caster. After a second, it starts shooting bolts of lighting in random directions. These bolts deal moderate damage, and light damage if it lands near the enemy. The ball of energy fires bolts in directions below the ball or to the side of the ball. It never fires upwards.

If the small ball of energy floats into a wall, ground, or ceiling, it evaporates, causing no damage. If the ball floats into an enemy, it deals moderate damage, but again evaporates.
