Hexes
  • Some hexes require a staff, while others require a Sacred Chime. All hexes can be cast with Black Witch's Staff or Sanctum Shield
  • Hexes can be obtained by finding them in some treasure chests, by purchasing them from some merchants, as covenant rewards, or by trading boss souls with Straid of Olaphis.
  • The item Simpleton's Spice can be used to reduce Intelligence requirements on individual spells (but no lower than 10 Intelligence).
  • The item Skeptic's Spice can be used to reduce Faith requirements on individual spells (but no lower than 10 Faith).
  • The Hexer's Hood and Saint's Hood increase the number of casts of each spell by 1.
  • The Abyss Seal will strengthen the damage of hexes, but will damage the caster a little upon every cast.
  • The Binoculars can be equipped in the opposite hand to your chime/staff allowing you to cast spells while "zoom aiming". This allows spells to behave like a bow and target distant foes.
  • Spells can not be dropped, but they can be stored in the Item Box at a bonfire.
  • You don't need DLC hexes for "Master of Hexes" trophy, if you didn't buy it.
