Creates a giant fireball that is hurled at foes.

The exalted flame, long pined after.
Even if it would scorch our very flesh."

        I can confirm they drop Great Fireball. If you're trying to farm these, and are on PS4, I suggest going down where the metal chest is, and attacking the salamander nearby, it can only shoot fireballs so it's not that big of a deal. Then, when you only need one more hit to kill it, quit the game and upload a backup file to the cloud. Get back in and kill it, check for drops, rinse and repeat.
