Acid Surge is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy of Carthus of the Sands.
Emits an acid which corrodes weapons and armor.
Carthus' swordsmen attached great value to victory, and would not shun the use of such pyromancies. For where is the honor in death and scoured bones?


Sold by Cornyx of the Great Swamp for 6,000 souls once he has been given the Carthus Pyromancy Tome.


When cast, a mist is released in front of the caster, which causes low damage to equipment durability.


Acid Surge has no effect in campaign mode, and the effect in PvP is negligible against anything but the lowest durability weapons; and even then, multiple casts are necessary to break an opponent's gear. As such, it has very little practical use in most encounters.
