Immolation is a Pyromancy in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Pyromancy, you must use a Flame or Special Weapons that can cast Pyromancy.
"A pyromancy that creates a coating of flame, allowing the caster to incinerate nearby foes. Needless to say, this is a perilous spell that burns the caster while active.
If a person is truly desirous of something, perhaps being set on fire does not seem so bad."
- Found in Belfry Sol, in a treasure chest past a fog gate.
- Damage to self can not be reduced.
- Damage to enemy is independent of flame reinforcement.
Can not be stacked with Flash Sweat.
- Spiritual successor to Power Within from Dark Souls 1.
This spell makes it easy to find invisible enemies in the Shaded Ruins
It is possible to roll through the self-damage.
- Casting Replenishment while Immolation is active will cancel Immolation. The reverse is also true; casting Immolation will cancel Replenishment.
- Casting Immolation and running through the tar pits in the gulch will catch them on fire.

"Spiritual successor to power within from DS 1"
What was the author smoking when they wrote that lol
Does red tearstone ring increase the damage of immolation?
And does immolation pass through enemies that are blocking?
I think they should have allowed the player to reduce the damage through fire resistance... that way, one could become immune to the flames, then use it for it's close range damage over time. That would have made it a more interesting addition to one's arsenal.
How to beat the game with only Immolation:
1. Abuse glitches to skip 90% of the game
2. Use immolation to very painfully beat the remaining 10%
I made a character with 99 vigor, life ring+3, and third dragon ring to get 2,600 hp. Combining a full northwarder set and a +2 lingering dragon ring makes it 72.5% longer for a duration of almost 52 seconds. Gotta say, it was lit.
Was pretty useful on my SL1 Sinh
....In getting to RTSR range
I was getting one-shot anyway

I desire to be set on fire.
This is used only to look cool while you use the Smelter Demon armor.
Ahh yes, let me burn myself for way more damage than it does to enemies.
Ah yes, the armor of thorns but worn inside out
Sadly doesn't work with old sun ring, would be amazing if it did
Immolation? Don’t you mean Armor of thorns 2.0?
The power of my autistic fury
Made a low level twink who would put himself on fire and run at anything that would explode. Good times of being summoned at Forest, and then running straight into shortcut barrels.
The statement at the top that says "Immolation is a Pyromancy in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Pyromancy, you must use a Flame or Special Weapons that can cast Pyromancy," is false- there are no "special weapons" that cast pyromancies. The only catalyst in ds2 that can cast pyromancies is a pyromancy flame of some kind (dark pyro, regular pyro).
so, i noticed that base Immolation deals like 70% max health in self damage, but with even with a Lingering Dragon Crest +1 it does almost 95% self-damage at a slightly slower rate. I suppose it could be easily mitigated with ring of Restoration and maybe Warmth, but still, why would you use this other than as a gimmick?
Metal as *****. Also, listen to the band Immolation. \m/
stop drop and roll motherf***kers
