For the Dark Souls III variant, see Black Serpent.

Fire Snake is a pyromancy in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy created by the magus Eygil,
loyal follower of the Old Iron King.
Creates several pillars of flame
in front of the caster.
Eygil sought to grant fire a will of its own.
This pyromancy was conjured up to behave
like a snake, writhing toward its prey,
with a mind to strike.


General informationEdit

Creates several pillars of flame in front of the caster. Like the name suggests, the pillars swerve the way a snake would slither, making it somewhat unpredictable the further it gets from the caster. However, when locked on a target it will home in quite aggressively and can perform large turns in order to reach the target.

In PvP this can be a highly useful spell as some players tend to have some trouble rolling through it or otherwise it forces the player to roll wasting stamina or manipulating where they go.


  • Despite the number of pillars created, Fire Snake only hits once and thus can be rolled through.
