Pyromancies are a type of Magic that deal primarily fire damage or provide resistance to damage, scaling with both Intelligence and Faith. The player can currently cast Pyromancies with all Flames and the White Hair Talisman. There are a total of 30 pyromancies. The minimum Intelligence and Faith needed to use all pre-DLC spells is 25 of both Intelligence and Faith. The majority of pyromancies can be purchased after giving certain Merchants a Key Item known as a Tome.

      Can you drop pyromancies for others to pick up when you summon someone? I away from my pyromancy trophy and it's unfortunately the Darkmoon covenant rank 2 reward. Anyone willing to drop it for me? I'll let the trophy pop and then drop it back to you. I'm a pure melee build, so don't need it.

        hello fellow players what is the best PVE build for pyromancies i would like to know,also my play style is aggressive if that helps.

          I don't understand why pyromancies such as Boulder Heave, Poison Mist, etc, are spit out of your character's mouth in the same fashion as DS1. They fixed this nonsense in DS2 by having you actually use the flame in your hand as it's supposed to be, that's why it's called a freaking catalyst. Christ, it's like people resented DS2 with such passion the developers had no choice but to douse the fanboy rage by stuffing this game with as much content from the first one as they could dig out, including a ridiculous animation of a person hurling a big-ass rock from his mouth.

            Great Swamp Pyromancy location should be Crucifixion Woods, not Road of Sacrificies. And specify Exiled Knights for clarity

              Shouldn't it be Dusk Crown Ring instead of Farron Ring? The first reduces FP consumption for miracles, sourceries and pyromancies while the later only works with weapon skills.

                Anyone else having trouble getting the achievement/trophy for collecting all of these? I missed exactly 2 in my first play through, just collected them both in NG+ and have no achievement. Am I really going to have to buy them all again and forego the other items that some of the boss souls give? And if so, is that going to clog up my spell attuning screen at the bonfire? Will I have to sell half my pyromancies? Thanks. -Zaphunter
