Talisman of Beasts is a Talisman Weapon in Demon's SoulsTalismans allow the user to cast Miracles, support Spells that generally aid one's self and allies rather than harming enemies. In particular, however, Talisman of Beasts allows the user to cast all Spells - not just Miracles.


An old wooden amulet featuring a symbolic depiction of the Old One. Can be used to cast both miracles and magic.
What was considered a depiction of God was in fact an image of the Old One, portrayed as a force of feral chaos.

How To Obtain


Notes & Tips

  • Cannot be upgraded.
  • Talisman of Beasts' ability to use both Magic Spells and Miracles would have presumably been special, had there not been only 2 Talismans in the entire game.
  • Along with its incredible versatility, it also has the second-highest Magic Spell power in the game - losing only to the Insanity Catalyst. (Unless you have 35+ in both Magic and Faith, where Talisman of Beasts actually overpowers it. This means spending twice the skill points to reach the same power, however.)
  • However not meeting stat requirements (faith and magic) with this talisman is also very useful as it will cause it to be "cracked". In this state the Cursed Weapon's HP-draining effect will be reduced from 1% HP per second, to 1 HP per second. It also benefits the best from non-scaling spells such as Second Chance and Warding. (Spells that do scale would be far too weak because of low stats.)

      Read the comments and from my experience it seems you can meet the FTH requirement but not the magic and have the cracked benefits still work. Have 24 FTH and 10 Magic and I only lose 1hp/sec using cursed weapon. According to comments, if you meet the magic requirement even without meeting FTH, it becomes 1%hp/sec. Which seems backwards to me because it’s a talisman but this is what my experience is.

        Do note that for Enchant/Light Weapon, only the MagAdjust (not TOTAL Adjust) part is counted, so if you have 18MAG/16FTH, you CAN run Light Weapon + Second Chance without reprecussions. Also, at those stats, it's the best tool for casting it, better than IC, as far as I can tell!

          Talisman of God or this for miracles? Same situation with catalysts where pure fth is better with Talisman of God?

            You only need to NOT meet the MAGIC stat for Cracked ToB for Cursed Weapon 1HP drain, no? You can have Faith as big as you want, no?

              "Second highest magic spell power". That is INCORRECT. I'm at lvl 70 in magic, the ToB does 162 Magic Assist while my Wooden Catalyst does 172. Why are these wikis lying? I've seen this written in multiple sites.

                Definitely seems to be cracked on my main character in Demon's Souls Remake. 24 Faith and 10 Magic, Cursed Weapon deals about 1 HP damage per second as far as I can tell.

                  I met the requirements for the talisman on magic but not faith, so I deleveled myself to not meet any of the requirements, but the "cracked" talisman still doesn't work on Cursed Weapon because I'm losing 1%HP instead of 1HP. Is it too late?

                    I'm pretty confident it still works. I saw streamers use it. I think you just have to not meet ANY requirements. So when you met the faith requirement it stopped working. You could try and test the theory.

                      "Cracked talisman" does not seem to work in Demons Souls Remake. Casting Cursed Weapon with 18 faith, 6 magic and roughly 700hp I lose ~7hp per second.

                        This misconception again. I've said this since the first souls game and now it's full circle. Do not compare 2 stats investment weapon with a 1 stat investment weapon. Example: 30magic+30faith =\= 30 magic. That's 60 soul levels to 30 soul levels. It should be 30magic+30faith = 60 magic. In which case Insanity Catalyst still does more damage. Tailsman of beasts surpasses Insanity Catalyst at around 53magic+53faith. That's 106 soul levels, a entire builds worth in a game with soul level match-making! In a souls game with spells like second chance, 90% to 100% magic block shields, 40% magic resistance rings, and the BEST invinciblilty roll frames & hyper armor how likely are you gonna kill someone at the minimum soul level range of 106? Even at soul level 60, how much hp and stamina do they have, not counting anti-magic gear and spells? If you like efficency, use it for it's ability to cast both types of buffs. If you like glass cannon mages then go 99/99 pushed tob build with sharp ring + yellow hat for fun, but like the advice of another souls game: Prepare to die.
