Lingering Flame is a Pyromancy in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Pyromancy, you must use a Flame or Special Weapons that can cast Pyromancy.



"One of the pyromancies devised by Straid, the great mage of ancient Olaphis.
Release a static fireball that explodes when foes draw near.

Straid was an oddly gifted mage, well-versed in both sorceries and pyromancies, but his curious temperament never allowed him to settle down in one place for very long."

Acquired From

  • Bought from Straid of Olaphis.
  • Occasional drop from the machete-scythe wielding enemies in The Lost Bastille.
  • Can also drop from the Undead Jailer in no-man's wharf on top of the pirate ship (!!only the case for "scholar of the first sin"!!).



  • Leaves a floating fireball in midair in front of the player that explodes when an enemy gets within a certain range.
    This can be useful in PVP, because it allows to player to lock down certain positions. Either the opponent walks into the mine and takes damage or he has to find a certain way to avoid them, while buying you some time in the process
    Also used by Desert Sorceress

      Also drops from the NG+ Red Phantomed BIG FATTYS on either side of The Lost Sinner bossfight (that guard the doors where the oil torches are)

        Be careful if you're trying to use this in the royal rat vanguard boss. If the fireball hits any of the rat statues it will fizzle out and disappear. Super annoying.

          Crazy powerful even if you don't level int/fth. Good in PvE, good in PvP. Heavy AoE fire damage on a trap that "lingers" for about 20 seconds. I'd reccomend getting at least 13 attune (and levelling your pyro flame ofc) so you can use this, regardless of character. It's just too useful and fun of a tool to pass.

            These are great for taking out the 4 dogs in the giant rat boss. Lay down a couple of these bad bois around you,take out one of the dogs with a bow,and watch as they walk to their deaths.
