Black Fire Orb is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy discovered by grave wardens after High Lord Wolnir fell to the Abyss.
Hurls a black fireball.
The black flame inflicts dark damage, striking targets with weighty force.


Sold by Karla for 10,000 souls once she has been given the Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome.


Hurls a black fireball at the target, dealing Dark damage.


Single playerEdit

Black Fire Orb is arguably one of the best choices among the small orb pyromancies. It grants a high-damage output (with high levels of Intelligence and Faith) and can stun-lock enemies easily. It consumes more FP than Fire Orb and similar pyromancies but it's more useful.

Online gameplayEdit

In PvP this spell is useful when shot rapidly and almost unceasingly to the opponent, granting the player high damage output and heavy stamina drain if locked. The inconvenience of this pyromancy is that may easily be avoided by dodging.
