These plus gravity sorceries can pair well together well with flame grant me strength as it boosts physical and fire and requires less faith than these sorceries (plus can stack eith golden vow for a very buffed mage with a little faith investment, that build also works well wth getting base req int/fth then pumping arcane and using albinurac staff and dragon seal, both over 300 spellbuff with 30int/30fth/45 arcane plus gives you physical damage scaling and status effect boosts, offhand meteor staff or gelmirs for a rock blasting fire druid build
These spells are actually really good. If only int build could have any weapon with other damage than magic -.-
A fire weapon buff would've fit really well here. Maybe coating your armament in lava, causing it to deal damage over a brief time? (Not %-based like Black Flame Blade, but scaling with your sorcery number.)
I love these so much, but its actually criminal theres only 4 of these and the remembrance one is mid as ****. Int/fth got shafted in this game, really hope we get more of these. Half of em are locked behind a missable questline, and their staff is a rare drop from one ****in guy at the end of a long area. I want gelmir glintstone placed on the map somewhere, not to grind for it, and id like a diverse range rather than just, roiling and gelmir’s fury, maybe rancor if im fighting slowpokes or crowds.
aren't these incantations ? or are they sorceries ? doesn't FAITH REQUIREMENTS = FAITH USERS ?
Str/fth/int is a lot of fun, especially for invading at 137. Cast ancient death rancor and then free aim blasphemous blade L2 to cut off their roll spam. Magma time bombs near ledges and Gelmirs fury for any wake ups. Black flame protection and bestial vitality still fit in the death theme (there’s a godskin at volcano manor!) and these synergize further with royal remains armor on blue feather talisman in duels. What started as a meme with the worst spell school and an over used noob sword turned into a very powerful build and magma sorceries are under rated.
So, let me get this straight...
These are fire based sorceries, that produce lava, that are referred to as hexes in game, and are boosted by a staff that scales off of int/fth?
WE'VE FINALLY FOUND THEM! THE WITCH OF IZALITH'S FIRE SORCERIES!

FIRE SHOULD BE FOR FAITH ONLY, NOT INTILLIGENCE :(
Really liked the them of these, and have been rocking a build kind of a magma spell sword now theres a few ways to play this build its 150 but do-able mid to late and I’ve been using it on NG+
Vigor 55, mind 26, endurance 22, strength 22, dex 15, int 40 faith 40 arc 9 and I started with astrologer
Radahn redmane helm, fire monk armor, clean rot gloves and greaves,
If you equip the great sword I switch the gloves for preceptors gloves
I have a gel or glinstone staff to boost the lava sorcery
Talismans are graven-mass, shard of Alexander, fire scorpion charm and the 3rd is your wild card depending on the style of play you pick
My physic is fire crack tear and the other is up to you
Note I usually use all the magma sorceries some targets I put the roiling magmas down first.. before I charge in with my magmashot combos and thats fun.. or in bosses I’ll maybe do a rykards rancor first and Ash of war them.. if you don’t care about rykards rancor you can go 30 INT instead and 30+ faith to put points else where for stronger weapons or equipment
So the first way to play..
Lordsworns straight sword with Double slash..
Magmashot if it doesn’t kill it kinda stuns them in place and you get a double slash in there
This style looks the coolest but NG+ whew the royal omens (where I test the builds) have high poise so expect to dance around this build it is challenging and fun
The 2nd is with the Iron Cleaver with flaming strike
This style is super fun you cast magmashot and as soon as you let it off you hold for a charged heavy and the unique R2 of this weapon usually poise breaks anything and if it doesn’t if you buff with your physic and flame grant me strength and golden vow you got an AR of this axe over 1000 so you magma shot, Charged R2 dead or throw a flaming strike at the end and then they’re dead.. its menacing and its really really fun
The Best way, but I don’t like it because its almost to easy is using
Sword of Night and flame..and this ones a bit more FP consuming
You throw a magmashot, L2, R2.. then gelmirs fury spell.. or any other , or just run in to attack.. this weapon is very strong and gives you verity, I personally try not to use such common weapons but if thats your gig go for it, it goes great with this build..
Lance, with Piecing fang ash of war
This is pretty fun usually magmashot which gives them a slight stun.. then piecing fang does a good 2-3k damage and then back step then running R2 I had fun with this strat.. its a bit FP draining but if you do this NG, most things will just be dead and you can do this build fairly early
4th way with giants red braid
This one.. .. you’re definitely dancing.. you are spacing you’re throwing out the magmashot and spamming the Ash of war as a follow-up.. the damage is ok.. but if anything poises out of your magmashot and they catch you in your ash of war ur gonna be pissed :D, when you get it.. its fun tho!
5th my 3rd favorite over-all is
Any great sword (knights greatsword ) with Eruption
Now this has synergy, usually you throw a magma shot.. then Ash of war It does pretty good damage however, the recovery time for the ash of war is a bit of a problem.. and your still a bit close so if you didn’t kill what you opened with expect to take a lil damage.. but hold this build for the last play style I add
There is an extra build tbh this one was my favorite but to keep it 120-150 I really can’t see it being done but I could be wrong.. and thats using
Golems Halberd with Eruption Ash of war..man.. this staggers.. this hits Im not gonna say its insane damage but the synergy and the way it looks is just dope. But the stat spread for not only having this weapon.. but the endurance you need just to have it.. and the strength you need just to use it.. but NG+ and your leveling beyond 150 try it out.. its fun as hell
Kinda annoying how there’s not one magma or Volcano manor themed weapon that scales with intelligence(except gelmir staff) and how high the int requirements are for half of these sorceries. I honestly don’t know how to make a decent magma themed build without going full caster route or ditching all the fire/magma damage weapons for magic/normal ones. Ig a str/int build with minimum faith? But since every magma weapon and it’s skills scale strictly/partially with faith I would be missing out on a good amount of damage for said weapons/skills. I guess this is just an idea that’ll work in NG+, pretty disappointed.
magma pure caster is really fun. the damage bonus from two staffs is huge
So they made these Sorceries on the basis that it would perform better when not locked on?…
I have no idea what they'd do but I really wish they had more of these sorceries because these are some of my favorite in the game, despite not being *amazing* like other sorceries I still find them really fun to use and they're still really good for things such as resetting frostbite/in PVP acting as a sorta 'Haha, panic' for Rykard's rancor, like how Elden stars is for faith users
I think for more magma sorceries they could have something like a 'magma armament' where it'll deal some fire damage and maybe ignore a portion of blocking from shields? or a cool effect like it would only last 10 seconds but heavy attacks you do will fling some magma onto the ground around you, something else could be a 'burning air' where it's like the frozen mist but it deals a small amount of fire damage when standing inside of it, or a neat one could be a constant stream of magma you spit out like that flamethrower incantation that lasts till you're out of FP/Stamina, either way I'd be happy if they just expanded on a couple of the 'lesser' schools of sorceries such as the bubble and briar ones by adding like 2-3 extra for each of those
Honestly these spells kinda suck. Sorceries in general in this game are way less fun than incantations.
Gelmir staff boosts these sorceries by 15%. Holding one in each hand will boost them by 15% twice, multiplicatively. I believe this would be 32.25%.
Do these scale better with Int or faith? I only ask because of the stat requirements to use them.
Pretty sure Flame Grant Me Strength boosts these as well
I run a frost build and magma shot works wonders for resetting the frost proc at a very low fth cost (10)
Great to hear. I was starting to feel like the fire incantations were not cutting it. Glad to know a full fire build is still viable
Yeah just got staggered and full health oneshot at 55 vigor level 152 in some hefty armor by a magma shot or perhaps roiling. Super cancer.
