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


Acquired From



  • This pyromancy previously went under the name "Forbidden Sun" in Dark Souls II.
  • Has a better arc (more straight) but shorter range than the orb pyromancies. 
  • Has an AOE that damages enemies it flies near. However, this damage is fairly weak (210 vs 848 main damage) and ceases once it strikes something. Despite the look of the pyromancy, the main projectile itself has a fairly small hitbox.
  • Damage is decent for single target (848 vs 694 via chaos orb without the lava).
  • Quite effective in PvP for catching fleeing players, punishing Estus heals, and hitting multiple players at once.

        Why does dark cluth ring increase dmg. What type of dmg does this deal? Stop crying about getting killed in pvp. Nobody cares, you just suck at the game. Take that toxicity back to league of legends pls

          Many people complain about Chaos Bed Vestiges and Great Chaos Fire Orb, and which pyromancy is better. In my opinion is that these are best in it's own job. CBV- It's very fast both in casting and the projectile speed itself. Does bigger damage but doesn't leave lava pool. It works best when fighting mobile enemy that won't stagger and can avoid lava damage. Best to use on bosses and in PvP as versatile tool to start or end a combo. GCFO- Best works when used in PvE vs groups of enemies and enemies that will stagger long enough to take lava damage. Using it in PvP requieres good un locked aiming. Summarizing both pyromancies are great in it's on way. You can't choose best tool between a axe and a shovel cause they both are used to different tasks. P.S. Sorry for all grammar mistakes, but I'm not from country that main language is english

            So many elitists saying this is op when, on paper, is a buffed version of fire orb. Do you know what s op? Sacred flame + the glitched damage you get when you get hit and strike with sf at the same time (only happens in pvp, sorry cheesers). One shot guaranteed (yep, tears of denial won t save you from that).

              This Pyro works great with the Fallen Knight set. And a Dark Sword... Or a Dragonslayer Axe... Or perhaps a squad of Phantoms... Fkn Gnkers

                @the guy below: GCFO isn't a suitable replacement for this, I'd even say that this is clearly the better spell. Have them both? Wise choice as both are useful in different ways. Replace vestiges for GCFO? No, i wouldn't say so since GCFO is easier to dodge by simply standing still till it's cast and then going on a leisurely walk left or right. Vestiges chains with any r1. R1-->vestiges is a true combo. It 2-3 shots anyone and casts instantly. You can interrupt a straight sword r1. GCFO shines better in blindsiding and baiting people into the pool when they rush you. I can't say that GCFO's very slight damage advantage is worth the slower cast. It only even hits more if the pool AND orb hit. Vestiges has a wider hitbox too.

                  Just use Great Chaos Fire Orb, It is much more useful than Vestiges, cheaper, versatile and still deals as much damage with the DoT lava pool.

                    Hey, this is pretty good. Finally a freaking spell that doesn't take 2 seconds to cast and still does decent damage. I think I'll spam this.

                      I won't say adding faith and int requirements to pyromancies was a good idea, but out of all ones to be exempt from that rule, why did it have to be the most obnoxious one? Not extremely hard to dodge, but every ganker and their mother uses it.

                          Needs a nerf. I mean the thing is giant idk why it say's "small hitbox" when even 1m away it'll still catch you.

                            Yeah let's make this spell combo into any R1 in the game in PvP...genius decision Miyazaki. Who doesn't like getting combo'd for 1000 damage.

                              good thing literally everyone only ever use and expect this spell makes them face roll right into great chaos orb because they were expecting to get hit like a second earlier + once people realize you use great chaos, then they suddenly become very eager to punish, I.E having black combustion thingymading ready as the immediate other spell, means u can double punish.
