Notes

  • Launches a fireball that almost immediately splits into several smaller fireballs. Basically it offers sprayfire with very decent accuracy, but it is outclassed in damage by Fire Orb and even normal Fireball, making them superior alternatives for damage.
  • May be an effective tool in online play, as it can easily stagger groups of enemies that may swarm an allied phantom, giving them time to escape or finish them off.

      This can work in pvp too since it's casting speed with sage ring is quick enough, damage is usable and accurate for viability. Mainly to finish someone off or doing burst damage when they retreat. Best used in midrange, it doesn't do mush damage in close range and it loses effectiveness at longer distances.

        That buff this thing got awhile back has made it into a workable spell. It's a decent alternative to fire orb... has faster casting and the AoE spread can be useful for enemy groups or catching mobile targets, but it has shorter range, poor manual aiming, and is a bit harder to use in a consistent fashion. It just gets a bit tough to fit in your spell slots when things like GCFO take up two of them.

          I tested this spell against other pyro spells after the recent patch against silver knights in Anor Londo.<br/>My stats are 40/40 with both pyro rings, fire clutch, and a +10 flame.<br/><br/>Bursting fireball: 452<br/>Fire Orb: 428<br/>Chaos fireorb: 672, 298 from lava<br/>Chaos Bed Vestiges: 782<br/><br/>I noticed that with bursting fireball spray it seems that getting point-blank doesn't increase damage, instead the damage maxes out from about 5 feet away (about the average length of a GS swing).<br/>

            Another trash spell. Extremely low damage, they seem to have actually balanced the spell around the belief that hitting a target with all mini-fireballs would be possible, which it basically isn't.

              The aoe is good, but the damage is terrible. I would not advise relying on this spell for anything but dealing with swarms of very weak enemies.
