      I just realized why I have so much trouble getting spells other then pyromancies to work in my builds. The spell buff multiplier seems to be better in general for pyromancies then other spell types. The fireball spells in particular are very strong even at low levels, which is something I struggled with when trying sorceries. Not that I'm complaining. I had a blast with my pyromancer run.

        With very low casting time, and medium damage (exactly between soul and heavy soul arrows) it is much better start than what mage gets. Although you need several casts to kill a single knight, it's combat useful, with potential to one shot early weak enemies.
