    How many attunement slots would a Pyromancer need to....

    ....have enough fireball spells to kill the Four Kings alone? Assuming you could take the most powerful spells available, and were using an ascended glove. Do you think 16 attunement would be enough?

    I have a dedicated pyro with 16 attunement. 2 combustion, 1 great combustion should be enough! big grin

    Using 2 combustion and 1 great combustion should kill the kings, but i'd pack fireballs just in case. Remember if you're going pure caster, the most important thing is to maximise casts as it'll do more damage overall.. long as you hit with them all obviously

    Remember you're not just limited to Combustion and Great Combustion anymore either. You can use the black magic version now too, generally for a bit more damage than GC.

    I summoned someone who used Power Within and Dark Pursurers.

    I've never seen the Kings die so fast!

    Something else I was wondering...it's my understanding that having summoned partners causes the damage you deal to get reduced. Does this also apply if you have Beatrice summoned? Not sure if I even want her, since she doesn't exactly add much to the fight. If I'm trying this on a low level (15), would it be better to just dive in alone and throw all the pyro I can muster at them?

    Kudos on the low level runs! The last time I summoned Beatrice was way before the game was patched up, I'm talking like when the game was much harder and the dragon head glitch was first discovered. If I remember correctly she did affect the fight the same way. She's a summon so it should still do it. I also remember the kings spawning WAY faster back then, but that could've been patch related. big grin

    Thanks for the tips. The Kings are toast. I'm now a level 15 Darkwraith. I went without Beatrice and just spammed the pyro. I ended up going with 19 attunement, but in hindsight, only needed 16, since its hard to miss with combustion.

    I felt so dirty for invading the parish afterward that I stripped down to black leather pants only and a non-elemental Bastard. Even dropped a Twinkling titanite for the dude. I've been griefed too many times to ever do that to someone.
