Fire Surge is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy of Cornyx of the Great Swamp. Emits a constant stream of fire.
Cornyx is a venerable pyromancer of an older mold, said to have restored a number of spells lost to the past, amongst which this is the most well-known.


Sold by Cornyx of the Great Swamp for 1,000 souls.


Emits a constant stream of fire, dealing low, continuous Fire damage.


Due to Fire Surge having to be channeled to retain DPS (damage per second) on a target (or targets), it will rapidly drain FP from the player's pool. As the FP drains much faster than the pyromancy actually hits, it is advisable to use this pyromancy in short bursts, or to catch an opponent off-guard, then follow up with a more robust pyromancy, such as Great Combustion or Chaos Bed Vestiges. It can also be used at close range to finish off opponents at low health.

It is able to stagger enemies, but is not recommended for use against heavily-armed, or larger enemies. Additionally, it will always stun enemies that have unique fire damage stagger animations, such as Corpse Grubs and the Pus of Man, for the full duration. This makes it an effective tool for taking down these enemies when paired with more powerful means of attack.
