Dark Bead is a Sorcery in Dark Souls. It can only be found in the AotA expansion.

In-Game Description

Abyss sorcery discovered by an Oolacile sorcerer on the brink of madness. Fire successive Dark Orbs.
In contrast to standard soul sorceries, Abyss sorceries are weighty and inflict physical damage. Perhaps a human soul is closer to matter in it's humanity.


Found on a corpse behind a Bloathead Sorcerer in the Chasm of the Abyss.

General InformationEdit

Dark Bead fires seven projectiles in a roughly 60 degree angle in front of the player, before travelling a good distance. It has a slightly slower than average cast time. As with other Abyss sorceries, Dark Bead deals high stamina reduction if it hits a blocking opponent; the spell is potent when multiple beads are able to hit, making it more deadly against individual opponents at close range.
