Desert Pyromancer Zoey is an enemy in Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City DLC


Enemy Description

  • Zoey is a descendant of the desert pyromancers. She uses the Flame Fan, a pyromancy which conjures and brushes a fan left and right. She possessed true beauty, as did all the desert pyromancers, but hers did not poison, and so she became the unassuming queen of the feeble ones.

  • She is accompanied by two Hollow slaves.


Combat Information

  • Wields Whip (RH) and Pyromancy Flame (LH).
  • Casts: Fire Orb and Flame Fan
  • Her whip at melee distance does significant damage. Melee fighters should approach with caution and block and dodge a lot and equip high protective armor.
  • Vulnerable to Vow of Silence, which prevents her from casting spells.
  • Uses 2 Estus flasks during the fight.
  • Drops Flame Fan.


Notes & Trivia

  • She wears the Desert Pyromancer Set.
  • Can be killed by Harald Legion Knight.
  • Identically-dressed humans, also called Desert Sorceresses, appeared in Dark Souls II.
  • Players can eliminate her by pushing her off the cliff, at least up to NG+3, even if she has full health.

      Just use vow of silence, lure her off the cliff, and let the Harald Knight take care of her if you really are so bad at the game that you can't kill her.

        Ugh, queen of the friggin' Desert Sorceresses. A good way to deal with this ***** and her annoying pals is ambush them with Hidden Body and Spook, then blast the***** out of them a couple times with Wrath of the Gods.

          Use a good bow, kill thralls first, hit her just before she casts but not earlier as she will dodge or later as you may get hit. I used Dragonrider bow +4 and wood arrows. Back up while firing to avoid whip, and rush past her so you don't run out of room and fall off.

            You can throw her off the cliff and trick one of the giant strong enemies into hitting her. She'll go down quickly.
            Just throw her off, go after her and pull the strong enemy. They will then both try to hit you, so keep Zoey between the giant and yourself and bait his attacks while dodging hers.

                  To all the people saying"Just use a heavy weapon like an ultra greatsword. It's so easy. Meh meh, meh mehhhh". Have you heard of a thing called "BUILDS"?

                    The thing is, it's not her health. It's a reasonable amount. Damage shouldnt be a big comainy. It's her rolling skills. I swear she has "roll bot" in her coding.

                      If she falls down to the swamp she recieves no fall damage...unless she is suppose to fall down from the tree roots? I think that is where most of the damage is supposed come from. Also if she does fall down to the swamp the character tries to reset by walking to the point but since the charqcter wasnt made to walk through the swamp it will get stuck inside the wall instead.

                        Hmmm almost two shots me with full fire resist.....makes sense... Tanks sunspear lightspear like it's nothing while wearing nothing but a piece of cloth. Can spam spells infinitely while stunlocking anyone who gets close. From Software know what's balanced.

                          How to cheese (with a melee weapon)(you're gonna be doing some spacing):

                          1. Whittle her health down so she uses her estus twice.

                          2. Equip a thrusting weapon (a quick one, like a spear, or a rapier). I used the Lothric Knight Sword 1H R2.

                          3. Bait Zoey into using her Flame Fan twice by walking towards her, then walking backwards (it's important she does it twice because that way, there is a delay between that set and the next set of Flame Fans).

                          4. As there is delay between her sets of Flame Fans, poke her once or twice.
                          Once if you have a weapon like a straight sword that can only poke once in a combo.
                          Twice if you have a weapon that can poke multiple times in a combo.

                          While this method is slow, it's more effective than trying to kill her faster than she can kill you when done on a lower SL, higher NG, or both.

                            Be careful when kicking her off the edge. Did it when she tried healing herself and her body fell on a rock with the loot floating in the air and am not able to fall onto the rock or climb it to pick it up. If you lnock her off in the wrong area you may not be able to go down and pick up the item. Frustrating to say the least.

                              Disgusting casuals. If you can't beat this poor, helpless npc then what do you call yourselves? Go choke on dung pies.
