Carthus Flame Arc is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy of Carthus of the Sands. Reinforces right weapon with flame.
Warriors of Carthus favored supplemental pyromancies such as this, which was used to enhance the curved blades of its swordsmen.

Reinforces right-hand weapon with Fire. Added damage is dependent on the Spell Buff rating of the tool used:

  • At base Spell Buff rating of 100, 80% of Spell Buff is added as Fire damage.
