The Heretic's Staff is a staff in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Catalyst used by generations of heretic sorcerers.
Sorcery is a logical academic discipline, and the power of sorceries depends heavily on the caster's intelligence.
Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found on a corpse on the Road of Sacrifices. From the Crucifixion Woods, head toward the ruins that lead to the Crystal Sage. Don't drop down into the swamp, instead follow the cliffside to a hole on a wall. Enter to find the staff on a corpse on the right.


For sorcerers below 50 Intelligence, this is the best staff to use for sorceries.




  • The design of this staff is reminiscent of Beatrice's Catalyst from Dark Souls.
    • The fact that Witch Beatrice can be summoned to help with the Four Kings within the Abyss may indicate that she was herself a heretical sorceress. As such, the heretical sorcerers who used this staff might have been Beatrice's legacy.


Reinforced with Titanite.
