Pyromancy

Pyromancies are on of the three available Spell types in Dark Souls III, the other ones being Sorceries and Miracles.
Casting pyromancies requires a Pyromancy Flame, as well as sufficient Intelligence and Faith.

Most pyromancies can be learned from the spell trainer Cornyx of the Great Swamp and some from Karla.
