Boulder Heave is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Art of a stray demon of stifled flame.
Spews a boulder from one's mouth.
The boulder is heavy, but shatters easily.


Obtained by transposing the Soul of a Stray Demon with Ludleth of Courland.


When cast, a boulder is spewed in front of the caster. The boulder travels a short distance before falling to the ground. It explodes upon colliding with an object, dealing moderate physical damage in a small area around the point of impact. Some opponents may also be launched away from the blast radius.


PvE Edit

Due to its low requirements and FP cost, Boulder Heave is a very effective pyromancy if used correctly. It can stunlock certain foes and is one of the few ways of reliably hitting enemies that are climbing up ladders. It's a rapid way to deal with not just one, but multiple enemies near to each other because of the AoE effect of this Pyromancy.

PvP Edit

It's also useful in PvP due to his low FP and the massive amount of damage inflicted. The only weakness is the slow casting time that could give the opponent an easier way to hit you, stopping the casting. (This is because of the Hyper Armor of the Pyromancy Flame that is zero.)
