Punish foes with a flame that blankets the ground.

      Don't get me wrong, I always love another sorcery catalyst, but wouldn't it make more sense for this to be a pyromancy catalyst? Considering the enemies who utilize this solely use fire based attacks?

        Torch but stronger. Exceptionally good at traversing through dark interiors of Irithyll and mow down legions of weak irithyllian slaves.

          This is quite the counter to crucifix of the mad king. Yes, the latter has poise and is buffable, but with this one being half-catalyst, spacing is your game. Besides, strafing won't do against the weapon art.

            Everybody here talking about farron flashsword and no one seems to realize that with a sorcery catalyst that deals fire damage you can freeze an opponent with frozen weapon or flash freeze and hit them with this in order to immediately unfreeze them, letting you freeze them again for more damage.

              This weapon has exceptional range with Farron Flashsword, this is very easy to see.
              It ALSO deals extra fire (and maybe physical?) damage.

              I've tested at SL 129 with in NG+ wielding 2-handed against the dogs and hollows near the Undead Settlement bonfire. Hitting the the two non-fat dogs causes the fire animation and they start writhing on the ground.
              I think there are 2 parts to the spell. A few times I got hit by a dog at the start on the swinging animation, and I'd only hit them for around 20 damage. This is kind of tough to replicate, I think the window is only a few frames.
              Unlike most catalysts, casting FFS with this can cause you to clash against it, ending the spell (not sure if it still uses mana when this happens). Using it against the hollows, an interuptted hit did only 20 damage, and a full hit dealt 276.

              There's probably a lot more to it. Maybe all catalysts add some weapon damage? I'm not going full Oldman-senpai here.
              Also of note: FFS can be cast as unique running, backstep, and rolling attacks, but not jump attacks.

                Am I the only one finding this weapon weird?
                Don't get me wrong, I will use, but it needs 4 stats and only scales with 3, the dancer's sword needs just as much and scales off all of them, and yet is considered a meh weapon.
                So is it the dancer's sword of catalyst, or am I bad at recognizing good weapons?

                  This weapon does less damage if the enemy is too close and is hit by the shaft rather than the hedgehog of fire. Apply maximum hog for maximum damage

                    Parry sweet spot on this weapon is a little strange. Parry at the end of the weapon is iffy if you can at all. Leo ring is also a great addition for those passive people as well as it reaches longer then most weapons.

                      Are there any true combos with R1 and sorceries except for farron flashsword? (im not sure that's a true combo, but i assume it is)

                        hehehe, get this.
                        You know how the background of this page has some sort of a landscape?
                        Right in the middle of your screen there's a bridge.
                        Forget that it is a bridge.
                        It is now a "Dat ass" smirk.
                        You're welcome.

                          >does fire damage
                          >requires both int and faith (as pyromancy does)
                          >the enemies that use it use fire

                          >used to cast sorceries

                          come on, at least let it also cast Pyromancies as well as Sorceries, like how the Black Witch Staff in ds2 could cast both sorceries and miracles

                            For those looking to min-max their Immolation Tinder sorcerer builds, I found that at 24/30 attunement and 60 int + minimum requirements to wield one-handed, the Pyromancer has two more spare levels at the sl 120 -125 meta compared to Sorcerer. Not a huge difference but worth noting for those who want as much vigor and endurance as possible.

                                this is the only weapon in this game that is 3 things at the same time: a torch, a catalyst and a halberd, but it does none of them perfectly, its a catalyst that can't buff itself, a torch that does not removes leeches and a halberd that does not have a heavy attack, i really can't find any actual use for this weapon other than doing cool cosplays with it

                                  Would anybody be willing to trade a fully upgraded version of this for a Titanite Slab. There is something I want to fully upgrade and I don’t want to start a another playthrough just to do it?

                                    I just realized From could have totally used the 1st part of Mad King Cruxifix WA to to give us the spouty flame attack the Fire Witches can do. They could have given this weapon a stance (like how the Dragonslayer Armour holder his weapon) then put Punitive Flame on the light attack and the spouty flame on the heavy attack.

                                      The weapon art I found has 2 hits the first being the slash and the second being the fire trail that follows afterward on top of that the slash flinches the opponent which nearly guarantees the fire will hit if you land the slash. Unless they have super armour
