Dark Sorcery

Dark Sorceries are one of the three available dark Spell types in Dark Souls III, the other ones being Dark Miracles and Dark Pyromancies.
Casting dark sorceries requires a staff attuned to dark, as well as sufficient Intelligence.

Most dark sorceries can be learned from the sorcery trainer Karla.
