Cast Light is a Sorcery in Dark Souls. To cast a sorcery, you must use a Catalyst or Special Weapons that can cast Sorceries


Ancient sorcery of the lost land of Oolacile. Cast a bright light upon surroundings. This light-producing sorcery is elementary but nonetheless demonstrates the achievements in mysticism of Oolacile. Such magic has not been developed even in Vinheim

  • You are only able to see your own light, meaning you cannot see the light of a co-op player, or vice versa.
  • This spell is especially useful in the Tomb of Giants.
  • Can be casted while any other buff is active, can even override itself.

      Interesting tip: If you use the spell and then touch a bonfire, the bonfire will reset your number of spell uses available while still keeping the light cast above your head. I use this in Tomb of the Giants to basically give myself an extra cast. Also, equip the Lingering Draconcrest Ring to boost the spell's duration time from 5 minutes to 7.5 minutes.

        the info is wrong (atleast for the dark souls remastered as for version 1.05 (and possibly 1.00) as it takes 16 not 14 intelligence
