Leveling Up Guide – Darksiders III

Our Darksiders III Leveling Up Guide details everything that you need to know about leveling Fury up and making her stronger.

There are two basic ways to level up in Darksiders III and level up. The basic way is to earn souls and then feed those souls to Vulgrim who will then give you Attribute Points once you have fed him a certain number of souls. The second way to level up in Darksiders III is to find the hidden Luminous Visages hidden around the world to get Attribute Points.

You can later use these attribute points and assign them to three distinct categories which include Health, Arcane and Strength to make Fury more powerful. It is very important that you level up Fury or you will not be able to defeat the late game enemies and bosses with simply a full health bar.

Acquiring Souls

You can acquire souls by a number of different means. The most common one is by defeating enemies in the game. As you defeat enemies, they will leave behind Soul Lurchers that Fury will automatically absorb. Apart from collecting these Soul Lurchers, you will also find different Soul Crystals in the game that you can collect in the game.

Lurcher Crystals are a collection of spirits stored in the form of crystals. They appear in your inventory in the form of crystals and are not lost when you die. To use them, you will first need to shatter them. Shattering a crystal will release all souls from within them and add them to your collection.

These Soul Crystals will give a different number of souls depending on their type and they range from 25 to 10,000 souls from a single crystal. You will find Soul Crystals either dropped by enemies or after smashing environmental objects. They are represented by a yellow flame. Unlike souls collected by killing enemies, you will need to shatter these crystals in your inventory to obtain the souls within them.

We recommend that you shatter these crystals only at the time when you are about to use them. If you continue to shatter them as you obtain them, you may die and then you will need to go back to the location where you died and collect the souls again. Keep the crystals intact and only break them when you are at a Serpent Hole and are ready to use them.

Depending on their size, there are 10 different types of Lurcher Crystals in Darksiders III. We have detailed them below.

  • Small Lurcher Clump – Gives 25 Souls
  • Medium Lurcher Clump – Gives 75 Souls
  • Large Lurcher Clump – Gives 150 Souls
  • Small Lurcher Cluster – Gives 400 Souls
  • Medium Lurcher Cluster – Gives 800 Souls
  • Grand Lurcher Crystal – Gives 1000 Souls
  • Large Lurcher Cluster – Gives 1200 Souls
  • Small Lurcher Cache – Gives 2000 Souls
  • Medium Lurcher Cache – Gives 5000 Souls
  • Large Lurcher Cache – Gives 10000 Souls

Whenever you come to a Serpent Hole, you can interact with Vulgrim and feed him your souls to level up and receive an Attribute Point.

Luminous Visages

Another way to accumulate Attribute Points in Darksiders III is by finding the hidden Luminous Visages around the earth. These are actually the remains of earlier battles and have now been unearthed after decades. You can find them and shatter them to gain an instant Attribute Point.

Using Attribute Points

Each time you earn an attribute point, you can assign them in three categories to make Fury stronger. These categories include Strength, Health and Arcane. This depends entirely on you as you can choose which aspect of Fury to strengthen up first. This also depends on your playstyle. If you play more like a tank, choose Strength and Health over Arcane. If you like dealing damage, choose Arcane and Strength over Health.


Assigning attribute points to health will gradually increase the size of your health meter at the top of the screen. In early stages, this increase is worth 20 points. As you continue to level up, this gradually declines down with 16 and lower in later stages. There are certain other things however that can help you make your health upgrade even further.

If you manage to find and save 15 Humans in the game, you will get a permanent 30% increase to your health. Also using Fortifier enhancement will allow you gain 50% additional bonus to health. These will counter the diminishing bonus of adding more attribute points later in the game.


Another important category to assign your attribute points to is Strength. Increasing Fury’s strength will ensure that each attack she lands is more powerful. The power of all standard attacks will be increased as you continue to increase your strength by putting more attribute points here.

If you are using the Fortifier enhancement with the Demonic track, then you will get additional weapon damage of up to 15%. As you continue to add more attribute points in the strength category, each subsequent point will add lesser and lesser strength so you will need to rely on enhancements just like Health to make them count. You can also upgrade your weapons to increase the damage you deal to your enemies.


Making Fury’s Arcane strong will increase her arcane damage. Arcane damage is a special type of damage which is dealt while special attacks such as Charge Attacks, Havoc Form Attacks, Wrath Attacks or even during Evade Counters. Similar to Health and Strength, using a Fortifier enhancement will increase the amount of Arcane Damage Fury deals to enemies. Subsequent attribute points after level 10 will grant lesser boost to Fury Arcane.
