Spell Uses




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."

Acquired From

  • 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.

      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?
