Magic and Miracles
‍‍‍‍Magic in this game comes in three flavors:


To use any kind of Magic, the player will first have to learn a spell, and equip a Catalyst that corresponds to the spell's Magic class. After the spell is learned, it must be equipped at a Bonfire with the Attune Magic option.

A spell has a set amount of uses, before it is depleted, but resting at a Bonfire will fully replenish it. Some spells can be equipped more than once, if the player has enough slots, and multiple copies of the spell in question.

Miracles are also affected by an online feature called "Resonance". If a player uses a miracle in their world (for example, "Wrath of the Gods"), other players connected to the same network will see a resonance marker in the area where you cast that miracle. If they then use the same miracle in that area then the power of their miracle will be increased. You'll know what spell to cast to enable the resonance by scrolling through your attuned spells and look for a spell that has a ring around it, similar to the resonance marker that appears in the world.

Can be successfully cast without an initial "lock on". Multiple soul arrows will hover above the player. Each individual soul arrow will seek the closest target, in the direction the player is facing, when in range. Because the spell can be cast in advance, it has a unique advantage in that, if timed correctly, it can be cast in synchronicity with other attacks.

Transform the caster into an inanimate object. Generally, the object you become is something common to the area you are in.

If done properly, an enemy will walk by you and never know you're there.

A straight line of crystals pop out of the ground in front of you, shooting towards your target. One advantage of this spell is that it will take out large groups of enemies if they are lined up one behind the other. It has a medium cast time, but once it fires, it will take out anything in it's path. 20 casts make this a great high level replacement for the soul arrow at high levels, as it's not as useful on most bosses.

Pyromancies

Pyromancy is a simplistic form of magic which, unlike Sorcery or Miracles, does not demand investment in stats to make full use of. It makes use of only one Catalyst, the Pyromancy Flame, and neither it nor the spells it utilises have any stat restrictions. Anyone can benefit from Pyromancy providing they have at least some Attunement, making it a popular addition to most playstyles.
The damage of pyromancies is determined by the spell and the power of the Pyromancy Flame, which can be upgraded and ascended to provide a greater output of damage. It is worth noting that although the Pyromancy Flame's stats seem to imply that it scales from Intelligence, this only applies to the damage dealt by its physical fist attack. Although Intelligence does not affect pyromancies spells directly, Pyromancies are still classed as Sorcery, and as such will benefit from the damage modifiers of items such as the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring.

Escape Death

0
Escape Death is a self-buff that prevents the user from losing souls and humanity after death. The miracle will not work if the user has two other self-buffs active (i.e. having both the Green Blossom stamina regen effect and the Transient Curse's effect will prevent the use of this miracle). Upon death, the message "Magic Revived" appears in green lettering identical to the "Ring Revival" message produced when a player dies with a Ring of Sacrifice equipped.
Unobtainable by normal means; the miracle lacks an icon when viewed on the Attune Magic page or in the player's spell slots, so the game developers likely did not finish it.
