Seek Guidance is a Miracle in Dark Souls. To cast a miracle, you must use a Talismans or Special Weapons that can cast Miracles.
Miracle of clerics on an Undead mission. Display more guidance from other worlds.
Guidance facilitates communication between Undead, but their value varies greatly. A balance of faith and wisdom is required.
- Support, Self
- Duration: 30 seconds
- Seek Guidance allows the player to see more online messages on the ground as well as their positive and negative ratings. Even helpful hidden messages from the developers are shown in some places.
- Sold by Petrus of Thorolund for 2,000 souls
- Sold by Reah of Thorolund for 500 souls
- Seek Guidance can be cast while other buffs are active, but doing so will not show any messages.
- Seek Guidance is a Self Buff and interferes with other such buffs (i.e. Great Magic Barrier, Green Blossom, Power Within, etc.). As long as it's active it's not possible to cast other Self Buffs and vice versa.
- The Lingering Dragoncrest Ring will not extend the duration of the spell.
- Seek Guidance's animation and effects look exactly like Tranquil Walk of Peace, making it a good choice to deceive other players into thinking you're casting TWoP and winning you some time as they retreat.
Known hidden developer messages (through patch 1.05)
These hidden messages have an icon of a Knight of Astora beside them, instead of one of the variable icons that accompanies normal online messages from players depending on how many votes the message has. This may be a hint that one of the knights you encounter, either 'Oscar' or Ricard, have left them on their journey.

Wow interesting, never knew about the hidden messages. Always thought this was just in case you didnt get the orange soapstone or something.
About as obscure as you can get though. Who’s going to cast this while fighting the centipede demon lol.
I feel like the developer messages should've just always been visible, rather than an obscure item for an obscure class
Use it in pvp and watch everyone panic
Very cool. I just wi***** had more spell uses so finding the messages would be easier...
Guidance: "Displays more guidance from other worlds." Me: *Chin stroking intensifies
Situational awareness is yet another tool at your disposal. Increasing the odds that you'll see other messages improves your chances for gathering intel about the area, as well anytime you rate (upvote only, i believe) a message, the owner of that message will get a sudden heal or flask, in game. I do believe one's messages only show up to other's while that specific character/build is being played. I don't know about you, but I still enjoy leaving little clues and getting a nice heal during a boss fight or so.
Could this Miracle be the one and only true definition of "useless"?
Try tongue but hole
Lame. It should have exposed summon signs as well, like they did in DS3
