Sorcery developed by Logan during his infatuation with Seath the Scaleless. Emit crystal breath of Seath the Scaleless.
Although it no longer causes curses, what madness caused old Big Hat to appropriate this frightful power of the ancient dragons?

      So.... this spell isn't needed for the Plat?? I just got the achievement without having this spell, I'm very confused

        Description lacks important information.

        Since WDB crawls on ground and has wider hitbox than other spells it can easily stuck on many obstacles. I could be anything... Ledge, rock, bush... It's just like every projectile spell will pass above this as well as every arrow, bolt and every meele attack. But no WDB. It will stuck on it.

        While it can pass through whole bunch of enemies sometimes little ground object or height difference is enough to block whole spell. This make it's effectiveness limited and random unless you have clear and straight path to your target. And if there's any gap between you and your enemy you can be sure he's totally immune to WDB.

          Idk why some ppl say it's trash. Pvp, maybe, because you'll have a hard time hitting anyone. But Pve? Definitely not. It hits a bit harder than GHSA, has a small aoe, and it can go through enemies, not to mention it has 20 casts compared to the 8 GHSA has. If you can meet the requirement, this is an amazing replacement for GHSA or other soul arrows as your bread and butter spell.

            Definitely worthy in PvE. It might seem odd to have a higher requirement than crystal soul spear when it has lower damage and longer casting BUT it offers the full package of being a spell with high uses like soul arrows and high damage like regular soul spears, It’s your ultimate PvE spell!

              I recently used this on a host who was running up a set of stairs and it shot up them super fast and crystallized the host right up the ass
