Strike the ground with a concentrated force of SOUL. This force can destroy foes or break through fragile structures.
The force requires SOUL to be conjured. Strike enemies to gather SOUL.



Press FOCUS/CAST or QUICK CAST while holding DOWN to cause The Knight to slam into the ground, creating a shockwave that spreads out and up. The dive deals 15 damage, while the shockwave deals 20.

The Knight is invincible for a very short period during and after using Desolate Dive. This allows for chaining uses of Desolate Dive to avoid enemy damage as long as the player has enough SOUL.
