Cast Light is a sorcery in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Lost sorcery from Oolacile, land of ancient golden Sorceries. Casts a light to illuminate surroundings.
This light producing magic is elementary, but nonetheless demonstrates the pure nature of golden sorceries; the likes of which have not been developed even at the Dragon School.


Sold by Orbeck of Vinheim for 1,000 souls once he has been given the Golden Scroll.


Produces a light source above the caster's head for a limited time.

Strategy Edit


As with all Oolacile's sorceries, Cast Light is meant as a utility spell that has little to no application in combat. It proves useful in dark areas, as it will leave both of the caster's hands free. However, it must be recast every so often, whereas a torch will never run out. Additionally, it may burn FP, so players that rely heavily on spells in combat need to be careful to not be caught in a fight without any spells to cast.

PvP Edit

Cast Light has no direct effect in PvP, but may be useful to free up the caster's hand if they are forced to fight in a dark area.
