Notes

  • This spell deals 296 dark damage with a 10+ flame and 266 with a un-upgraded flame.
  • In all other ways, it is simply a stronger version of Great Combustion.
  • This spell gets significantly stronger when used with the Pyromancer's Parting Flame, thanks to its unique ability of leaving trails of fire during the casting animation, leading to double the damage.

        How to Win PVP most of the time: Lightning Arrow and this with Pyros Parting Flame. Bait with Lightning Arrow for them to get close. Stun with Lightning Arrow, or don't, proceed to spam2win Black Flame. Congrats you're now gold rank.

          It does practically the same damage as a Dark Fire Orb, but is incredibly spammable. (From personal experience, sorry if wrong) it seems to deal a lot of poise damage too, putting most big enemies into instability mode faster (Though it still takes quite a number of hits). A solid pyromancy for breaking guards and dealing a lot of close range damage very fast, just watch that FP usage.

              I love it (after 10th June patch)25 Jul 2016 03:39  

              i did a lot of invasion with my 40/40 sl90 pyro character.. This pyro help me a lot. Use Fire Surge, people will roll against u, then u use this spell for a 400-510 damage (20% ring+12% ring). I usually use this against a shield user, it will put them in riposte animation with a 190-230 damage, then i switch to my chaos dagger for a 1100-1300 damage. (the only time it didn t work was against a havel greatshield user with high stamina).

                The spell chaos bed vestiges seems to stun players for long enough to cast a black flame in their face. That's if they were close enough. But it's quite a lethal combo in PvP, as most players get caught in the first spell when they roll into you.

                  Range was buffed as of the 10th June patch, the same buff was also applied to Great Combustion.<br/><br/>The fire now appears further in front of your character, and the hitbox of the fire seems to more closely match the visuals, resulting in a decent boost to the maximum range of these two spells.

                      Finally some interesting pyromancy based cosplays will be possible, like Itachi perhaps.

                      • Dark scaling like DS2? or just FAITH?02 Apr 2016 13:35  

                        Does anyone know if the scaling for the dark magic (pyro, sorc and miracles) is like DS2? (Lowest from INT / FAI)??<br/>Because in the DARK GEM description says its scales from faith.
