    How do I use pyromancies?

    Post by mickykan215 on Sun Feb 03, 2013 7:45 am

    I have got the Great Fireball equipped and a catalyst on my right hand but I still can't use it. My character only scratches his head when I press R1. What's wrong?

    Catalysts are for casting sorceries only, not pyromancies. To cast pyromancies you need to have a pyromancy glove equipped. You can obtain one if you rescue Laurentius from the Depths.

    Catalysts are for sorceries, talismans for miracles and pyromancy flames for pyromancy. The only way to acquire a pyromancy flame is by starting as a pyromancy class or by finding Laurentius. (pssst, he's in the depths)

    Since you don't seem to know a lot about pyromancy lemme also point out that pyromancy doesn't scale with any stat and only increases in power by upgrading your pyromancy flame, which can be done at Laurentius. (and Quelana is you manage to find her.)

    Yes, and no. Eingyi, egg guy at Chaos bonfire, will give you a phyro flame if you have 12 int. You also have to talk to him a little to get it. Quelana will upgrade it, but only if it's at +15. You need Laurentius to upgrade it to +15. Also, when she upgrades it the name will change from Phyromancy Flame +15 to Phyromancy Flame, but don't worry. It's better.

    May I ask how you managed to get a Great Fireball without getting a flame?

    Oh yeah, i forgot about Eingyi.
    And that's a good question. I guess he found Quelana.
    The circumstances of her appearance are kind of a mystery anyways, it's happened before that she shows up without the player having a pyromancy flame.

    How did you make her appear without a phyo flame +10? We would all like to know. (BTW: not calling you a hacker. It's just the requirement for her appearing is not fully known.)

    She spawn after you meet Queelag (kill it yourself or help someone in co-op). Also she CAN upgrade normal flame to +15 and then ascend it. :bas:

    Sometimes even that doesn't make her spawn. I know from experience.

    She upgrades the flame to +15? I tried that once but she never even gave me the option. Was that changed in a patch?
