Immolation Tinder is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Profaned Flame wielded by the Irithyllian witches, frigid spirits roaming the Boreal Valley.

This torch, both a weapon and a staff, is enshrouded in an everlasting flame.

Skill: Punitive Flame
Punish foes with a flame that blankets the ground.


Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Can be used to cast Sorceries.
    • Cannot cast Pyromancies however, contrary to its appearance and usage by the enemies that wield it.
  • Longer range while one-handed.
  • Higher damage and hyper armor while two-handed.
  • At 60 INT it has a spellbuff of 220.
  • Farron Flashsword does not present a big upgrade to range, but it is an efficient quick attack.
  • Soul Greatsword does not have any hyper armor, but it does cover a huge area around the player.

      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

                              This is a fun PvE tool for sorcery builds against bosses weak to frost like Dragonslayer Armor. Use the Immolation Tinder to cast snap freeze and let the boss take the freeze damage and then smack them with this weapon to deal fire damage to them which removes their frost cooldown. Rinse and repeat.
