Faith is a stat in Dark Souls.


Faith is a talisman modifier, increasing the effectiveness of most miracles.

Faith is also a weapon modifier, increasing magical damage for unique weapons (see Weapon Scaling) any weapon upgraded down the Divine or Occult paths.

Faith also increases the lightning damage of the Dragonslayer Spear and the physical damage of the (cursed) Greatsword of Artorias.

Faith also increases Magic defense.

Weapon scalingEdit

The following are weapons that scale with faith, and their level of scaling, when not upgraded. Weapon scaling may change when upgraded.


  • Almost every miracle has some level of Faith requirement. Joining the Warrior of Sunlight covenant initially requires 25 Faith (50 Faith pre-patch 1.04/1.05), but the requirements can be lowered through cooperative play. For every boss that a player helps another defeat, that requirement will go down by 5 Faith.
