Pyromancies are on of the three available spell types in Dark Souls III, the other ones being Sorceries and Miracles.
Casting pyromancies requires a Pyromancy Flame, as well as sufficient Intelligence and Faith.
Most pyromancies can be learned from spell trainers like Cornyx of the Great Swamp or Karla.
Their inventory of pyromancies can be expanded by returning to them various pyromancy tomes, found throughout the world.
