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 fast cast time, this skill can be useful for quickly getting in some point-blank damage on an enemy. In particular, its high stamina damage allows it and its stronger cousin to break open weaker shields with relative ease, opening other players up for an easy riposte.
