Spell Swap

From SpeedSouls - A Dark Souls Speedrunning Wiki

The Spell Swap is a glitch in Dark Souls III in which the player is able to cast a spell even though the player does not meet the required stats for it, through the method of swapping to that specific spell "during the animation of another spell" in the Spell quick menu. The glitch is performed by pressing a series of buttons in sequence on either controller of keyboard to execute the glitch.

  • The initial Force Casting Glitch which led to discovering Spell Swap got found by user LTC Cherno
  • After further testing PeachyMike then later discovered that its possible to Spell Swap using any spell in combination with a castable item (Chime / Talisman / Staff / Pyro-hand)
  • The glitch works on Patch 1.04 until Patch 1.14 until the glitch was patched in Patch 1.15
