As with its cousins, Great Fireball has a long windup time that can be shortened through investment in the Dexterity stat. Great Fireball is an upgrade of Fire Orb and an advanced ranged pyromancy. It deals more damage and noticeably larger area of effect. Great Fireball deals damage equal to three times the Pyromancy Flame's magic adjust.
Since it is the strongest ranged pyromancy bar Great Chaos Fireball and requires less attunement, Great Fireball is a very popular pyromancy for use in PvP. It is somewhat less common in PvE, where the limited amount of casts per slot limits its utility for long journeys. Great Fireball also boasts impressive poise damage unlike the lesser Fireballs, being able to stun opponents with up to and including 84 poise, making it the single most poise damaging attack in the game available to players.
As with its lesser cousins, Great Fireball is hindered by its long windup time, arced trajectory, and slow projectile speed, so it is important to plan ahead when using this pyromancy.
