Hi All

I am brand new to this Game and playing D.S for the 1st time .

I am in a situation where I do not seem to find a way to populate the sorcery slot(or magic slot ...i suppose).

I have attached images with text , to show what I mean.

I can not equip the 'soul arrow' or 'hidden weapon' etc , because the top slot is empty and remains empty.

what am I doing different here please ?

Have you equipped a wand? That could be the problem. Same exact thing happened to me recently.

Give me a heads-up if you're going to send a request please.

I have a spear .
is this under category : wand ?
if not, where do I get a wand...from the merchants ?

Thx. in advance.

Firelink shrine can be populated with an NPC that sells them...or you can find them. I think. i apologize in advance if my advice is spotty because i'm super new to Dark Souls.

I think you also have to attune magic at a campfire. Maybe.

I had trouble figuring it out too. So much so that i pretty much avoided spells with my character.

okay, thx for these hints
Hopefully someone here will eventually tell us all about this.
itmt I will keep an eye for the keyword 'wand' and I will higher up my attune stat & see where it goes..

@radaway_1 sorry, for clarification I think when you rest at a bonfire there's an option to 'attune magic' in the main menu of bonfire options

Yeah they made it deliberately hard to figure out for some reason. I think they wanted it to be a cool novelty for the most curious and experimental people. Anyway, this is how to do it:

You need.
1) The right "weapon" in your hand. Sorceries (the magic you're looking at) require a "Catalyst" (or wand). You can buy the first Catalyst from the blacksmith in New Londo, which is accessible straight from Firelink Shrine at the beginning.

2) "Attunement" stat needs to be level 10 for 1 attunement slot to become available.

3) Buy the sorcery you want, making sure you have the right "Intelligence" level to use it.

4) Attune the sorcery at a bonfire, into that top slot. It can only be swapped at a bonfire.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Thanks Dezzy
aahhh... This makes it quiet so clear rather than stalking in the dark.
I also made inroads in some other forums , but the answers are so cryptic and non-caring, as if : "Find it out yourself, this is your PhD. thesis" ( groan) !

I shall definitely give this a Try and once again thanks for making my entry into this otherwise-unforgiving game a bit more bearable : )

*PS: on a side note: does 'Andre' sell it too["Catalyst" a.ka. wand} (why I ask : this is the only BSmith I have presently access to)

**Double PS : is there any dedicated D.S forum here , or my subsequent queries ( which I foresee coming ) can all be posted here ?

Thx. !

@SKTTR
this game is a 'souped up' zelda.
-and unforgiving
I am a casual player & find it quiet difficult to wade my way through, but it has it's nuances too.
basically a zelda to it's exponential and running on .... Nitros

Can't remember what Andre has. But you can access the blacksmith in New Londo right from the start at the firelink shrine, so he's definitely available if you've already found Andre.
