Pyromancy is a type of magic from prior FromSoftware Inc. titles that players just beginning Elden Ring hope they can put to use.
The ability to manipulate and use fire to damage enemies or control areas is not a new concept in gaming. FromSoftware has used Pyromancy as the main form of magic in the majority of its games.
That trend continues in Elden Ring. Players who want to see the opposition burst into flames can rejoice. Pyromancy is available for Tarnished to set those ablaze who dare challenge them in the Lands Between.
Pyromancy is alive and well in Elden Ring
In previous FromSoftware games like Dark Souls, Pyromancy was tied to different magical combat categories. There was Crystal Magic, Miracles, and just plain Pyromancy.
In Elden Ring, Pyromancy is the only way to go about it. There are several fire-based spells that are tied to the Faith stat. Truly, a Pyromancy build is easy to put together.
Players can get their hands on the first of many Incantations for Pyromancy after reaching the Roundtable Hold. Brother Corhyn has Catch Flame for 600 Runes and Flame Sling for 800 Runes.
Catch Flame is a Pyromancy technique with a requirement of 8 Faith to use. It basically casts a spell towards an enemy and sets them ablaze, causing them to burn for a short period of time.
Flame Sling is a sort of fireball attack. It requires 10 Faith to use and launches a ball of fire in the direction of the enemy. Both Incantations require the user to have a Sacred Seal of some kind to cast them.
Aside from the two aforementioned Incantations, here is every Pyromancy spell that players can learn in Elden Ring:
- Flame, Cleanse Me
- Flame Fortification
- Whirl, O Flame!
- Frenzied Burst
- Fire’s Deadly Sin
- Aspects of the Crucible: Breath
- Flame, Grant Me Strength
- Magma Breath
- Giantsflame Take Thee
- Aghleel’s Flame
- Black Flame Ritual
- Surge, O Flame!
- The Flame of Frenzy
- Theodorix’s Magma
- O, Flame!
- Flame, Fall Upon Them
- Burn, O Flame!
- Black Flame’s Protection
- Flame, Protect Me
- Flame of the Fell god
- Black Flame Blade
- Black Flame
- Scouring Black Flame
These won't be labeled as Pyromancy in Elden Ring, but it is the exact same concept. It uses that type of magic, but categorizes every spell as an Incantation.
Incantations can be found all throughout the Lands Between. They can be looted off of corpses, found in chests, rewarded after defeating bosses, or purchased from merchants.
With the vast amount of fire-themed Incantations, players can enact their Pyromancy fantasies. Nothing is stopping them from going absolute berserk with red hot flames.
