Combustion is a skill in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Creates a powerful flame in the wielder's hand. One of the most basic pyromancies, and for this very reason, the flame create is fierce. Works while equipped in either hand.


Quickly releases a blast of flame from the wielder's hand.


Single playerEdit

This skill acts as the Combustion pyromancies from previous games. It consumes a small amount of FP, but does not require an attunement slot. This makes it useful for dealing with creatures weak to Fire. This is the weakest form of pyromancy, but also one of the fastest.

Online gameplayEdit

Due to the time for casting and the low damage, this skill is dangerous in PvP, especially if the opponent wears armor with high Fire resistance. It could be used to finish an opponent, although there are other methods better than this.
