Great Combustion is a Pyromancy in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Pyromancy which improves upon Combustion. Create powerful, giant flame in hand.
Great Combustion creates a powerful flame, but many sorcerers mock the simplicity of this spell.


General Information[]

Great Combustion is a stronger version of Combustion, with identical casting time and similar applications, but is less flexible in use due to the halved number of casts. It deals fire damage equal to 2.4 times the pyromancy flame's magic adjust.


Great Combustion is an immensely popular spell, both for PvE and PvP. In PvE, it is great for quickly racking up damage on tough-to-kill enemies such as bosses. In PvP, it is a potent addition to any arsenal due to its high damage through most shields and large hitbox. Eight casts is still very generous for the amount of damage Great Combustion does.

The AoTA DLC makes Great Combustion semi-obsolete as Black Flame is near-identical but with the added bonus of dealing more stamina drain against targets.
