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.
  • She is immune to swamps's poison, but at least her two companions will die of it.

      Great soul dreg is very effective at cheesing her because if it is cast from a distance her AI will not know how to dodge it

        for pure melee, having a hyper armor weapon such as great hammers, curved greatswords etc lifts a lot of burdens here. hyper armor trades to defeat the thralls (while luring them to the branch to not aggro zoey). bait the fireballs if she starts spamming them and then if she goes for melee, make a trade and stunlock her. if she uses estus, continue hitting her (or use estus yourself if needed). this has worked a large amount of the time for me so I hope this helps

          She rolls away if you fire arrows at her unless you aim low at her legs. Really helpful if you use The Millwood Greabtow, since the explosion usually kills her minions on the spot.

                Strangely enough, Zoey CAN die to poison in the swamp. I knocked her of the path into the swamp below just now, but I saw her health bar ticking down BELOW the swamp. Clearly she'd glitched through the floor. I was using Demon Fists so there's no chance I dealt the poison damage, and she was ticking down in increments of 6 or so so it was definitely poison. She took a good few minutes to finally die down there, but when I reloaded the area, her Flame Fan had dropped on the slope, next to where she spawns. Her Thralls had somehow respawned too, but she was dead for sure. My guess is a.) She's not immune, just super resistant, or b.) Her immunity is only tied to the swamp's physical ground level. I've knocked her off plenty in order to get some cheap plunging attacks, but I've never seen her get poisoned before. Brand new discovery!

                  to those having problems with her, wait until thze thralls rush at you, kill them, use a fast weapon like hollowslayer greatsword, two hand it and chain stagger her to death, was easy even with angel alive

                    The worst thing this cheating thot does is trick you into thinking whips do anything resembling decent damage.

                      Maybe I just don't remember DS2 that well, but seriously, did the Desert Pyromancers in that game do such insane damage? I was properly leveled, had decent middleweight armor, and equipped the Ring of Steel Protection +3 from earlier in the DLC, Flame Stoneplate Ring, and Speckled Stoneplate Ring, and this thot STILL raped over a third of my life bar with every single attack that connected. Why such ridiculous damage?

                        I cheesed her by forcing her to waste estus and then fired arrows at her as she was casting fireballs. You have to roll out of the way before she hits you. Took me a couple tries but I got there in the end.

                          During my SL10 run I noticed the best way to kill her was to go all sneaky beaky like and use Hidden Body & Slumbering Dragoncrest to assassinate her goons, wait for her to be near the edge of the cliff while staying hidden and then just bash her over the edge (using Dark Hand in my case). Would probably work even better if you actually had a lot of FP and could also use spells that push enemies. Anyway, yay for exploitable NPC behaviour!
