For other uses, see Dark Fog (disambiguation).

Dark Fog is a hex in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

This hex is regarded as a poison due to the outward symptoms, but in fact, the fog eats away at the target's inner essence. Just the traits that led to the prohibition of hexing.


General informationEdit

Identical to its Dark Souls counterpart, casting Dark Fog releases a large cloud of thick, black fog. The cloud causes a rapid build-up of Poison to enemies caught inside; however, whilst the total damage caused is similar to that of Poison, it takes less time to reach this damage threshold.

Attunement milestonesEdit

Like all other spells, the amount of casts per slot increases upon reaching certain Attunement milestones:

Attunement Level Amount of Casts
10 4
32 5
43 6
58 7
94 8


  • Prior to patch 1.06, this hex caused almost instant Poison build-up on a target when used in conjunction with the Bat Staff.
