General Information[]

Chaos Storm requires two attunement slots to use. It is very similar to Firestorm, having twenty "casts" (using 17 per full cast), dealing slightly stronger initial damage and then leaving pools of lava. The pillars deal fire damage for 3.6 times the flame's magic adjust and the lava pools deal fire damage for 2.0 times the flame's magic adjust. In terms of initial damage, Firestorm deals the lowest initial damage, then Chaos Storm, followed by Fire Tempest . However, if the enemy lingers to take the lava damage, the total damage can outdo Fire Tempest, thus giving this pyromancy the highest damage potential Storm spell. This makes it an extremely viable spell for large, slow moving enemies.


Chaos Storm is useful as firestorm when it comes to knockback, dealing damage, and granting players breathing space. In addition, it is also useful for temporary area denial by creating lava around the caster. Like Firestorm it can prove useful against large enemies and bosses such as Seath the Scaleless as more than one pillar can hit the enemy.
