Toxic Mist is a pyromancy in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Unique pyromancy of Eingyi that never gained currency in the Great Swamp.
Creates an intense poison mist.
Driven from the Great Swamp, they say that at the end of his journey, Eingyi happened upon a virulent poison and a young lady.


Found in the Smouldering Lake, on a corpse in a lava pool located at the lowermost level of the Demon Ruins, behind Knight Slayer Tsorig.


When cast, a toxic cloud is released in front of the caster, causing gradual Toxic buildup to foes that stand in it. Once contracted, Toxic causes 10 damage per second for the duration.

Buildup is static and is not affected by rings or spell buffs.

How to obtainEdit

In order to survive the trip inside the lava, there are many strategies that can be followed and even combined before venturing inside. The main idea is to slow down the loss of HP enough time, allowing the player to heal up and advance a bit further, repeating the process as many times as necessary until they have successfully gotten the item and returned to solid ground. Each time the player's health reaches half of the HP bar, they should heal.

Here is a small list with just a few strategies to survive:


  • The virulent poison and young lady that Eingyi encountered are likely the blight pus and Quelaag's Sister, respectively.
