Skeptic'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 faith. Will only work with assistance from a certain person.
The spice does not raise one's faith, but only obfuscates the requirement.


The Skeptic's Spice can be given to Magerold of Lanafir in the Iron Keep in order to lower the faith requirement of a Miracle. Each spice lowers the spell requirement by one, and can be used multiple times per spell. Upon usage, the item disappears. There is a similar item for Sorceries called the Simpleton's Spice.
