Catalysts are casting tools in Dark Souls. All sorceries require catalysts with which to cast them.

OverviewEdit

Catalysts are equipped as weapons and can be used on either the right or left weapon slots. Pressing R1/RB or L1/LB(depending on which side the catalyst is equipped) will cast the selected spell. Depending on the catalyst, pressing R2/RT or L2/LT may result in either a strike or thrust attack.

Magic Adjustment is a statistic specific to casting tools; the higher this value, the more powerful most spells become. All catalysts have the same base MagAdjust value (100), but have different stat scaling (Parameter Bonus) levels which makes the actual value vary. Certain catalysts have unique traits. The Tin Banishment Catalyst and the Demon's Catalyst albeit weak in comparison, may serve as weapons due to their higher than usual physical damage capabilities. The Tin Crystallization Catalyst and Manus Catalyst are by far the strongest catalysts in terms of Magic Adjustment, however, they both halve the casts per spell a player may use. Lastly, the Tin Darkmoon Catalyst scales with Faith rather than Intelligence, making it useful for Faith builds that satisfy specific spell casting requirements.
