Pyromancy is a class of spells in Dark Souls II.

General informationEdit

Pyromancies typically deal Fire damage and are cast with a Pyromancy Flame or Dark Pyromancy Flame

This particular school of magic is special in the way that it has no requirements to be used, provided the player has at least 3 Attunement Slots (a single one is also fine as the majority of spells only require one), and a Pyromancy Flame, then every single Pyromancy spell in-game can be used, because of this, it tends to be used by most players who favor physical damage builds, but who still want to possess some magical spells to either surprise opponents or to merely fill the gap between short and long range combat without having the need to pull out a bow mid combat, thus allowing for a shield to be used in the other hand to block strikes or spells. It is important to note that most of these spells have severe range penalties to compensate for its ease of use, as well as very small amounts of uses. 

Regardless of it being used primarily by those who don't cast regular spells, leveling up Faith and Intelligence is still a good idea as both will raise the damage of all fire based forms of damage caused by the player, Pyromancies included. As such, a players who focus on magical attributes, will still deal more damage to those who do not.  

Players may also upgrade their Pyromancy Flame up to a total of ten times by using a Fire Seed at each stage along with souls to increase their damage output. Pyromancy also scales with the fire parameter bonus, which scales with both Faith and Intelligence.

  • Question about dark pyro flame

    • Does the dark pyro flame work with other hp lowering effects in addition to hollowing (e.g. northern ritual band)?
    • The Dark Pyromancy Flame scales with hollowing, not loss of hp. So lowering your health won't make it do more damage like a Red Tearstone R...
