Fire Surge is a Pyromancy in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy foreign of the Great Swamp. Creates a surge of flame from palm to hand.
Not all pyromancy originates in the Great Swamp. One hear rumors of unknown pyromancers inhabiting various lands, and this spell is the work of one such outlander.


In the Painted World of Ariamis, down the well near Phalanx there will be a series of narrow passages guarded by Bonewheel Skeletons. Follow the available passage (don't bother with the illusory walls for the sake of straightness) and up a flight of stairs, there is a non-aggressive Engorged Zombie, killing it will yield this pyromancy. Coming from the sewer entrance, you'll have to reveal the 1st illusory wall, and then continue down the previous path.

General Information[]

Fire surge is essentially a flamethrower; holding down the casting button will cause a the player to emit a continuous stream of fire. Fire Surge has next to no starting or ending lag. Players can walk while casting this pyromancy. Each hit deals fire damage for 0.55 times the flame's magic adjust.


It is easy to run out of casts with this pyromancy without moderation; however, 80 casts is usually enough to last at least one or two engagements. It is not very popular in PvE as it does not stagger and its fairly low damage allows monsters to retaliate. In PvP, Fire Surge is occasionally popular for punishing slower opponents or finishing off players with low HP.
