DARK SOULS III
MASTER OF PYROMANCIES
Trophy Guide

Dark Souls III Intro pic
There are a total of 27 Pyromancies you will need to collect as you make your way through Lordran. Most of which are acquired from Cornyx of the Great Swamp, several more pyromancies are obtained from Karla
Please Note ~ You will need to defeat the Curse-Rotted Greatwood in the Undead Settlement AFTER discovering the Mound-Makers covenant, otherwise this becomes missable until your next playthrough
Once you have successfully joined the Mound-makers covenant, you are then free to defeat the Curse-Rotted Greatwood where you will acquire the transposing kiln allowing you to trade various boss souls with Ludleth in Firelink Shrine
In addition to this, you will also find a good amount of pyromancies throughout the world of Dark Souls III and finally you will need to ascend the Mound Makers covenant to Rank 2 in order to acquire every pyromancy available
Here is where you can find the NPCs required starting with

Cornyx Of The Great Swamp

Starting out from the Undead Settlement, Cliff Underside bonfire, make your way up and around to the rooftops where the enemies are throwing Firebombs at you, take all of them out then make your way around the platform to find Cornyx in a cage, speak with him where he will travel to Firelink Shrine and can then be found down to the right of Andre the Blacksmith. Speak with him again where he will start selling you pyromancies
Next up is

Karla

Another NPC that you will need to find in order for her to sell you her pyromancies can be found in the lowest level of Irithyll Dungeon where the Jailers are congregating near the cells. Karla is found by going to the last cell on the right then head back on yourself down the passageway pass the Jailer to find her cell
To open it, you will need to go across the Toxic swamp in the Profaned Capital, make your way around the rooftop and up the stairs, then head round to the left where at the end of the corridor you will find the Jailer’s Key Ring on a corpse. Go back to Karla’s cell, open it then speak with her agreeing to Offer Help and then select the dialogue option, Save her Nonetheless where she will then travel to Firelink Shrine, to find Karla, head down the stairs to the left of Andre the Blacksmith, she is in an alcove underneath these stairs. Speak with her where she will then sell your her pyromancies, providing you give her the correct Tomes (detailed below)
In addition to the 2 NPCs, you will need to join the Mound Makers Covenant (click the button below to go to the main game guide then search for the Covenant: Mound-Makers guide for information on this) Once you are in this very missable covenant, you will need to raise it to Rank 2 which is no simple task
To ascend the Mound-Makers, you will need to acquire and gift 30 Vetebra Shackles which are farmed from the Carthus Swordsmen that are found throughout the Catacombs

Vetebra Shackles

To ascend the Mound-Makers, you will need to acquire and gift 30 Vetebra Shackles which are farmed from the Carthus Swordsmen that are found throughout the Catacombs
The 
Carthus Swordsmen are the Skeletons with red eyes that attack you unrelentingly. The easiest way I found of farming them is to first ensure you have a good amount of Homeward Bones or the Coiled Sword Fragment then head out from the Catacombs of Carthus, Catacombs of Carthus bonfire, take a right then a left. Take out the 2 Swordsmen here, head to the end of the walkway and drop down to the Rats, head left, take out another Swordsman then head up the stairs. Make a left, taking out another swordsmen then come back on yourself taking out the swordsmen
as you go. Once they’re all dead, repeat the process until you have a total of 30 Vetebra Shackles

Unfortunately, the shackles are a very rare drop so increase your Item Discovery to help make this quicker. Once you have 30 Vetebra Shackles, take them back to the Mound-Makers covenant to receive the Warmth pyromancy

Tomes

In addition to fulfilling the above requirements, you will also need to find and then gift 5 Tomes found throughout the game to either Cornyx or Karla in order for them both to sell you their more powerful pyromancies
Here are there locations in the order you can find all 5 Tomes including which NPC you should give the Tome to as well as the pyromancies each Tome unlocks to help ensure you don’t miss a single pyromancy

Great Swamp Pyromancy Tome

Give to Cornyx to unlock Bursting Fireball, Fire Orb, Pestilent Mist and Profuse Sweat
Road of Sacrifices, Crucifixion Woods bonfire

When you’re in the area with the Carthus Swordsmen, take an immediate right to find an illusionary wall (the wall is yellowish compared to the other walls), go through it pass the Skeleton and take a right where you will be able to collect the Carthus Pyromancy Tome

Izalith Pyromancy Tome

Head down the stairs and across to the staircase to your right that’s on the floor, careful down here as there are Fire Orbs that have really good range. Take a right at the end then right again. At the end of this path is a light grey wall with tree roots, this is an illusionary wall. Go through it then head left to find the Fair Lady from Dark Souls holding the Quelana Pyromancy Tome

Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome

Give to Karla to unlock Black Fire Orb and Black Flame
Catacombs of CarthusHigh Lord Wolnir bonfire
You can acquire the Grave Warden Pyromancy Tome as soon as the fight with Wolnir begins, however, if you miss it during the fight, you can collect it from a corpse in the top left corner of the room after the fight

Now you have all 4 Tomes here is where you can find all 27 Pyromancies in the order you can find them, through the following categories, NPCs Boss Souls, World Loot, then finally the Covenant
I will also list the stats required for you to wield them as well as their FP cost where applicable
Pyromancies are unique in Dark Souls III as they require both Intelligence and Faith to wield them effectively
In order to use a Pyromancy you will need a Pyromancy Flame which can be acquired by rescuing Cornyx of the Great Swamp (see above) then attune a pyromancy at any bonfire
