Pyromancy is a simplistic form of magic which, unlike Sorcery or Miracles, does not demand investment in stats to make full use of. It makes use of only one Catalyst, the Pyromancy Flame , and neither it nor the spells it utilises have any stat restrictions. Anyone can benefit from Pyromancy providing they have at least some Attunement, making it a popular addition to most playstyles.
The damage of pyromancies is determined by the spell and the power of the Pyromancy Flame, which can be upgraded and ascended to provide a greater output of damage. It is worth noting that although the Pyromancy Flame's stats seem to imply that it scales from Intelligence, this only applies to the damage dealt by its physical fist attack. Although Intelligence does not affect pyromancies spells directly, Pyromancies are still classed as Sorcery, and as such will benefit from the damage modifiers of items such as the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring.
