Catalysts are a Weapon Category that enables players to cast Sorceries in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Catalysts are equipped on a weapon slot, allowing for the casting of Sorceries and dealing Strike or Thrust Damage depending the types of Sorceries used. (to cast Sorceries, press R2/RT or L2/LT).

Magic Adjustment (Mag Adj) is a special stat unique to spell casting weapons, and determines the amount of damage spells will do. Its potency scales with the relevant character Stat (Intelligence, Int; or Faith, Fth). The higher the Mag Adj, the stronger the spell's effect (note: some spells, such as Chameleon, are not affected by this stat). Be aware that the Mag Adj on different catalysts will scale differently. Specifically, they have different: base Mag Adj, max Mag Adj, and scaling. As some catalysts are meant to be used at lower levels (Oolacile, for example), they will reach their optimal scaling level sooner than those meant to be higher level catalysts (Logan's).
