Great Chaos Fireball is a pyromancy in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

The chaos flame is said to have devoured the mother of pyromancy. Create a chaos flame, and hurl it at foes.
This special flame creates a short-lived surge of molten lava wherever it lands.


This is likely one of the harder spells to obtain in NG and NG+ due to the way advancement works within the Brotherhood of Blood. However, it is also one of the most damaging, if not the most damaging, pyromancies in game.

General information[]

The Great Chaos Fireball is very similar to Great Fireball; it is an arced projectile dealing heavy fire damage. However, the difference between these two spells is that Great Chaos Fireball deals higher initial damage (tested on various enemies in NG++) and leaves a short-lived pool of lava on impact as well.
