Dark Souls 3 Pyromancy Locations ‘Master of Pyromancies Guide

Dark Souls III Pyromancy Spells

Dark Souls 3 Pyromancy spells deal with sheer Fire-damage, sometimes coupled with Dark-damage. However, as opposed to Sorcery spells, Dark Souls 3 Pyromancy spells rely both on Faith as well as Intelligence – not set in stone though.

Your character’s Pyromancy spells can significantly be boosted from Spell Buff bonus which is acquired by Pyromancy Flame. While Dark Souls 3 Sorcery spells tend to target a single target, Dark Souls 3 Pyromancy spells, on the other hand, deal with area-of-effect damage which can hit multiple enemies at the same time.

Even if your character build does not primarily revolve around magical spells, you can invest a few points in Faith and Intelligence and use Dark Souls 3 Pyromancy spells.
