Traces of the tumultuous seedbed that birthed the beings known as Demons.

Hurls chaos flame that scorches vicinity.

Demons born from fire bore its smoldering essence and perished soon after. Man shares this rapport with the flames to this day.


Acquired From



  • Deals (spell buff x 3.4) damage for the main projectile, and (spell buff x 1.1) damage for the spiral.
  • This pyromancy previously went under the name "Forbidden Sun" in Dark Souls II.
  • Has a better arc (straighter) but shorter range than the orb pyromancies. 
  • Despite the look of the pyromancy, the main projectile itself has a fairly small hitbox.
  • Quite effective in PvP for catching fleeing players, punishing Estus heals, and hitting multiple players at once.
  • This is easily one of the best Pyromancies in the game, with a large explosion, high damage, and good FP to Damage efficiency
  • The Japanese reads more as: "Remnants of the nursery that gave birth to the demons. / Scorch the surroundings, throw a flame of chaos. / The demons that were born of the flame house/carry its smoulders and then will die out / be ruined / destroyed.  That is, the relation of everybody to fire even now." The idea is that the relationship of demons to the chaos flame mirrors the relation of everyone else to fire.

      I refuse to use this spell just out of respect to the people on the receiving end. It can and will feel unfair, and the fact that you get it so early in the game doesn't help it either. I used to run Forbidden Sun for PvP in ds2 and, you know, it was a very lategame thing if you wanted opt out of killing NPCs, so it felt deserved and it was still somewhat restrained with having only two of them, maybe three or four if you're showing off. In ds3 though it deals obscene amounts of damage, has a weird hitbox and just feels... unfun. Also the name sucks, Forbidden Sun defo sounds lots cooler and's what initally got me into getting the spell, yeh.

        retarded busted spell, literally free damage meanwhile mages and clerics spells take 3 years to cast for the same damage of 1 straight sword hit.

          I hate how this spell resets your stagger in pvp. Wouldn’t nearly be as bad if it didn’t combo with literally everything.

            The spell that has single-handedly killed high level PvP. Imagine a spell/weapon with literally no downsides, just good in every imaginable way. Man, I really hope they don't pull this **** again in Elden Ring.

            "Hey's lets add a giant planet sized hitbox fireball that does absurd damage with moderate FP cost." - Some genius at FromSoftware.

              Just gonna go ahead and say that the name for this spell in DS2 is a million times cooler than in DS3. Forbidden Sun >>>> Chaos Bed Vestiges

                First time I actually missed the limited spell casts from previous games. Nothing sucks more than continually dodging mini suns.

                  everyone here is talking about pvp, I really don't care too much about pvp. I want to know for ya know the rest of the whole game what people think for this vs gcf. Cause there is that lava after burn that is very nice but the raw on hit damage of this? and also the throwing ranges

                    Hey, the one good thing about CBV users in pvp is that it immediately lets you know who you should be blocking. Eventually you won't see it much.

                      Chaos Bed Vestiges: the stains you find upon waking up after a night on the town with a whole circus of clowns.
