Dark Swarm is an Incantation in Salt and Sanctuary.

Dark Swarm

Dark Arrows

"Summon an array of foe seeking arcane minions. 

The Halls of Azredak the Betrayer are teeming with restless spirits; these creatures are promised shreds of redemption in exchange for devouring the blood of Azredak's enemies."


Dark Swarm Effect

  • Summon an array of foe-seeking arcane missiles. The spell's homing works from so far away that distant enemies can sometimes confuse the spell's tracking.
  • Extremely powerful, but temporarily debuffs your character upon use, massively decreasing your defense (same effect that Flask of Defilement has on enemies).
  • Class 3

      This incantation's damage depends on two factors : your Magic stat and your Attack stat. The higher they are, the better.

        Remember the Witch of the Lake and the spell she uses that spawns the minions that lock on you? This is that spell.

          This spell is insanely broken. It does good damage, its spam-able, and I'm fairly sure it combos with the saper charm. Yeah, the charm that restores focus on hit. On my rogue/mage hybrid run, while using the charm on my dagger, I could spam this spell infinitely without losing focus. I shredded the disemboweled husk while standing still and only pressing 1 button.

            Debuff is quite a doozy19 Jun 2016 03:05  

            Was about to quit the game in my NG+3 run because I didn't know this was causing a debuff (didn't see anything in its description about it!) Quite a few bosses were 1 hitting me with even their weaker attacks when I equipped top leveled highest def heavy armor against the attack type and it didn't make sense why. Everything is cake again switching back to melee only attacks when I know I can't perfect dodge an enemy.
