White Hair Talisman


Talisman made from a lock of white hair.

This lock of hair belonged to a deformed member of the chaos witches, mothers of the art of pyromancy. Fashioned into a talisman, it enables the wielder to cast both miracles and pyromancies.

Skill: Combustion
Creates a powerful flame in the wielder's hand. One of the most basic pyromancies, and for this reason, the flame created is fierce. Works while equipped in either hand.



In Smouldering Lake, on a corpse at the back of a lava pit behind the Illusory Wall leading to the Quelana Pyromancy Tome. Recommended to stack Fire Absorption and drink Estus every few steps, or alternatively use a Shield to block the direction of the damage.





  • The White Hair Talisman is strung through the Old Witch's Ring from Dark Souls.

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are A / B / C / D / E:

Each weapon has one or more Physical damage types:

  • Standard
  • Strike
  • Slash
  • Thrust

Certain enemies are weak or strong against different damage types.
See the damage formula for further details.

Aux Effect:

The Aux Effect stat dictates how effective the weapon will be at causing the effect. The Aux Effect stats for a weapon are A / B / C:


Damage multiplier when performing a backstab or riposte. Value of 100 means no extra damage.

Spell Buff:

Damage multiplier applied to the base value of a Spell. This value scales depending on the primary stat of the Catalyst, i.e. a Catalyst with Intelligence scaling will have its Spell Buff rise as the player's Intelligence rises.

By default the value reflected in the infobox and the upgrades uses 60 Intelligence and/or Faith.

Stats Needed:

The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The stats required for a weapon are A / B / C / D:

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Intelligence and/or Faith will reduce the Magic/Fire/Lightning/Dark damage and Spell Buff.

Stat Bonuses:

The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus damage you do with the weapon, based on the associated Stat. This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill). See Scaling for more information.

The Bonus Stats for a weapon are A/B/C/D:

Damage Reduction:

The Damage Reduction % of the weapon. It dictates how much damage the weapon mitigates while blocking. The Damage Reduction % stats for weapons are A / B / C / D / E :


Determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack. A higher stability also allows you to block stronger
attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.


The durability of the weapon.


The weight of the weapon. Note that carrying over 70% of your Equip Load will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going
over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
