Dark Spirit is one of the elemental spirits callable by Summoners in Final Fantasy XI. It can be learned at level 1 from a Dark Spirit Pact, which can be obtained from the bodies of defeated high-level Kindred Summoners, as well as from certain battlefield events, or bought from the Auction House if sold by other players. The Summoner has no direct control over Dark Spirit's spellcasting.

Spellcasting behavior[edit | edit source]
Dark Spirit is more likely to use powerful spells in gloomy weather or on Darksday. The delay between its spells can be reduced by having higher Summoning Magic skill, wearing Summoner's Spats, or summoning the spirit in its matching day and/or weather. When multiple enemies are attacking members of the party, Dark Spirit may cast Sleepga or Sleepga II.
