The Witchtree Branch is a staff in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

The branch of a large, well-tended witchtree, used as a sorcery catalyst.
Witchtree staves are customary in the far north, and allow for faster casting than ordinary catalysts.
Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.


Found in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.

From Central Irithyll, make way past the plaza with the fountain. To the left of the second Fire Witch there will be a small terrace with a Crystal Lizard. The banister on the right is illusory and will reveal a staircase once hit. Head down the stairs past a Pontiff Knight and toward a cell with a deranged Evangelist named Dorhys inside. The staff lies next to a tree on the right.


The main selling point of this staff is that it has maxed out casting speed making it unnecessary to use the Sage Ring and thus allowing for other rings to used.

However, this comes at the heavy price of consistently having the worst Spell Buff out of all other staves, regardless of what level of Intelligence.

As such, it should be used as a staff for casting buffs, defensive spells or evasive spells only.

For instance, it can be useful for when players cross the staircase filled with Undead Soldiers and Lothric Knights leading to Lorian and Lothric's arena. One could equip this staff and constantly cast Hidden Body and Spook, while running up the stairs to completely bypass the area.


Reinforced with regular Titanite.
