Magic

Magic is an integral part of Demon's Souls, and should be explored as it can provide assistance from combat and stealth, to assisting your fellow phantoms in co-operative play. There are a total of 22 Magic Spells available within Demon's Souls, and require a Catalyst to be used.

[edit] Learning Spells

Spells must initially be purchased from Sage Freke or Freke's Apprentice for Souls, or in exchange for a Demon's Soul. After defeating Phalanx in 1-1, the NPC Freke's Apprentice will appear in the Nexus behind the ArchStone for World 5. He will only offer you a starting selection of Spells if your Magic and Intelligence Stats are 10 or above.


[edit] Catalysts

A Catalyst is the medium for casting Spells within Demon's Souls, much like the Talisman's for Miracles. It can be held in either hand to cast offensive and defensive spells, however it must be held in the left hand when using a Weapon-Buffing Spell such as Cursed Weapon.

The Magician starting Class begins with a Wooden Catalyst, where as the Royalty Class begins with a Silver Catalyst. Aside from the aforementioned Catalysts, there is only one other available to use - the Talisman of Beasts which can cast both Spells and Miracles.


[edit] Memory Slots

Much like Miracles, Magic Memory Slots are based upon a Character Stat which determines how many Spells you can have with you to use. Intelligence is the depending factor for amount of Slots accessible with more potent Spells using up to 2 or 3 slots, careful deliberation is required to make the most out of them.

Intelligence Memory Slots
1-9 0
10-13 1
14-17 2
18-23 3
24-29 4
30-39 5
40+ 6


Once past 40 Intelligence, the Memory Slots reach their limit of 6, this however can be increased to 7 slots by equipping the Ring Of Magical Nature.
