Pyromancy Flame is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3, used to cast Pyromancies.

Flame catalyst used by pyromancers.

Equip a pyromancy flame to utilize pyromancy. Pyromancies must be attuned at a bonfire before use.

Creates a powerful flame in the wielder's hand. One of the most basic pyromancies, and for this very reason, the flame created is fierce. Works while equipped in either hand.

  • The effectiveness of Pyromancy scales both with Faith and Intelligence.
  • The basic Combustion spell is a Skill feature of the Pyromancy Flame in this game, and not available as an attunable spell.
  • At 40 Intelligence and 40 Faith the flame has a Spell Buff of 207 (Source)
  • At 60 INT and 60 FTH it has a spellbuff of 221.

      Weapon art is kinda garbage compared to literally any pyromancy spell. Starting as a Pyromancer, with the +0 flame and 14 int/fth Fireball deals more damage, consumes less FP and can be cast at range. The only thing the weapon art (combustion) does better than fireball is it is quicker to cast by a small margin.

        "Creates a powerful flame in the wielder's hand." ...this must be the description for some other game because Combustion in this one is a joke and consumes so much FP it's not worth using for anything besides finishing an enemy where Great Combustion would be wasted...if you don't use your regular weapon that is.

          Interesting note, while its used to cast pyromancies, its WA combustion is affected by the farron ring bringing its FP cost down from 12 to 9. Just tested it :)

            I really wish they had made one of the pyromancy flames look like a blackflame. That would have been awesome.

                Just did some testing and it seems the spell was literally 1% stronger after an upgrade. Only upgrade this if nothing else needs upgrading

                  I can't help but notice that the spell buff only increases by 1. Is this thing worth upgrading?I'd hope it's "fire attack" is relevant to the actual pyromancies, but as we all know those are "spells" too, like miracles or sorceries.

                      Question: does equipping the pyromancy flame burn off any leeches attached to you, like equipping the torch does?

                              2nd glove in first playthrough04 Jul 2016 21:10  

                              I've been seeing a lot of people saying you have to wait for your 2nd glove until you get to ng+. Well I got my 2nd before that. I would like to say i have not tested this. I started as a pyromancer and when I saved cornyx he did not give me one and I was really bummed out. Then at the end of my first playthrough I decided to kill everyone and get their armor sets and guess what! Cornyx dropped a glove!

                                How is the scaling above 40/40?26 May 2016 17:51  

                                With the dark spell tools scaling above 40/40, has anyone tried to test how it affects the pyro flame? The dark pyromancies should also be tested, just in case they gain more damage (but I doubt it).
