Simpleton's Spice is an item in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A spice exuding a peculiar aroma.
A spell demands devotion from its caster , but using this spice makes a chosen spell attainable with 1 less intelligence. Will only work with assistance from a certain person.
The spice does not raise one's intelligence, but only obfuscates the requirement.

General InformationEdit

Simpleton's Spice is used to lower the required Intelligence for any spell by one point; however, it can only be used when talking to Magerold of Lanafir, after selecting the "Incense" menu.

The effectiveness of the spell will still depend on the associated Attack Bonus, and using a spell below its base requirements may result in reduced effectiveness (for instance, casting Strong Magic Shield while the wielder has less than 18 Intelligence will reduce the duration of the spell). However, reducing a spell's requirements can be useful for gaining access to certain spells without leveling beyond the associated stat's soft cap, such as Crystal Soul Spear, Soul Geyser or Dark Greatsword.
