Surrounds the caster with multiple pillars of flame.

The raging storm is indiscriminate; such is the intrinsic horror of the flame.


Acquired From




  • Uses 2 FP 19 times and ~95 stamina to cast.
  • Can still be cast if you have less than 38 FP for fewer fire pillars, but still uses the full stamina cost.
  • It's essentially just a weaker version of Chaos Storm, but with less FP and stamina cost.



  • Tested with a +10 flame vs the Silver Knights on NG.
  • Damage is per flame pillar, sometimes hit up to 3x on a single enemy.
  • With Great Swamp Ring + Witch's Ring + Fire Clutch Ring, Firestorm did ~65% more damage per pillar.

      For anyone wondering this is better than chaos storm in that it only takes 1 slot instesd of 2 and it uses 33% less fp but it deals about 10% less dmg per flame. The dmg difference is negligeable honestly and i'd rather save up 33% fp to be able to use it more than go for an extra 150~200 dmg the spell deals about 500-600 per flame so sometimes you deal 1000-1200 dmg, the extra 200 dmg seems meh honestly. All numbers are rough estimates for +10 pyro flame, 40/40 all 3 pyro boosting rings.

        This spell is awful. No wonder the witches were engulfed by flame, considering the horrible aim it has. How the helk can this useless trash miss midir s stomach!?

          This is... bad. Not worth a slot on pve or pvp. Too long to cast, no hyperarmour when casting, not 100% sure to hit your target even if he's right in front of you, and it depends on your target having poise or being on hyperarmour frames AND standing still to deal full damage... wich is less than a single Chaos Bed Vestiges. Much faster, more damage, better dps, you can aim it... just better.

            Works pretty well, as a mid-range attack. A little long to cast but rewarding, when used at the right time.

              Which is stronger?26 Apr 2016 11:05  

              Not counting the lava danage from Chaos Storm, which storm spell has the greater initial damage output? Or are they the same?
