General Information

Do not confuse this item with its ascended form.

An unupgraded Pyromancy Flame can be traded with Snuggly the Crow for a Red Titanite Chunk.

Only a maximum of two Pyromancy Flames can be acquired per playthrough as Laurentius won't give the player his flame if their starting class is Pyromancer. This applies whether or not they picked up the Pyromancy Flame at the Undead Asylum. The second one is usually from Eingyi.

In comparison to Sorcery, Pyromancies have shorter range and slower casting speed. However, many Pyromancy Spells have a large area of effect and deal residual damage. Pyromancy also has several unique utility spells, such as boosting damage output at the cost of HP drain or transforming enemies into allies.

A summary of costs:

  • It takes 149,500 souls to upgrade the first path (Pyromancy Flame+15) and another 191,000 for the second path ("Ascended" Pyromancy Flame+5)
  • It takes 340,500 souls to fully upgrade all 21 levels of the Pyromancy Flame. For comparison's sake, this is enough souls to gain 55 Soul Levels (starting at SL 1).
  • Although the Pyromancy Flames has INT scaling, this scaling does not affect the Flame's MagAdjust (which governs the damage spells inflict). The only way to increase the MagAdjust is by upgrading the Flame.
  • The INT scaling is only for the strong attack's Fire damage. This is a widespread misconception. The phantom Int scaling does not affect the Pyromancy Flame's strong attack. As far as anyone knows, it's a left over/unused feature of Pyromancy. Citation: First 30 seconds of this video.

Key

MagAdjust: The Magic/Miracle Power of the catalyst/talisman. This value scales with the user's Intelligence/Faith stat. The value displayed in the table is taken with maximum stats and varies with lower stats.
Damage:

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is Physical Damage
  • X is Magical Damage
  • Y is Fire Damage
  • Z is Lightning Damage
Durability: The health of the weapon. The effectiveness of the weapon will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
Weight: The weight of the weapon. Note that carrying over 50% of a character's Equip Weight will reduce the speed of their rolls, while going over 100% will reduce their regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave them momentarily stunned.
Stats Needed:

The requirements determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The Requirement stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is the Strength required.
  • X is the Dexterity required.
  • Y is the Intelligence required.
  • Z is the Faith required.

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the spell damage.

Stat Bonuses: The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus characters receive based on the associated Stat when they use a weapon. This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill).
Damage Reduction %:

The Damage Reduction stat dictates the percentage of damage reduced while blocking. The Damage Reduction stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is the Physical Damage Reduction
  • X is the Magical Damage Reduction
  • Y is the Fire Damage Reduction
  • Z is the Lightning Damage Reduction
Stability: The Stability of the weapon. The higher this value, the less stamina is consumed when blocking attacks.
Frampt Souls: This is the amount of Souls player swill receive if they feed the item to Kingseeker Frampt.
