10. Hidden Body 

How to get the Hidden Body (6:08)

Stealth is more than viable in Souls games, and Hidden Body is an excellent spell that fills that requirement very well. It allows you to turn yourself nearly invisible, making enemies detect you less easily. It is not perfect invisibility, due to the lore, but it is quite efficient nonetheless. The Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring and the Untrue White Ring will make you essentially a ghost for your enemies, so they can’t detect you at all. Very useful when you want to avoid combat!

What makes the Great Magic Shield great:

  • Great buff for shields

8. Crystal Hail

How to get the Crystal Hail (Crystal Sage Soul)

To get this spell, you need to transpose the soul of the Crystal Sage with Ludleth of Courland. The fight itself is relatively easy so you can get it quite early in the game.

  • Good damage
  • Easy to acquire
  • Very useful in many situations

7. Crystal Soul Spear

6. Soul Greatsword

  • Relatively cheap

3. Spook

How to get Spook (Orbeck of Vinheim)
