It summons a flaming chaos orb that shoots fireballs at your enemies. It can be found in a secret part of the new area, and it’s guarded by a pretty powerful enemy. This guide will show you how to get Floating Chaos pyromancy in Ashes of Ariandel, what it does.

Floating Chaos Location

You’ll have to be embered in order to get it, since it’s a drop from an NPC invader. Travel to the Ariandel Chapel bonfire. Go down the stairs into the crypt, then use the stairs to head to the lower level. There’s an illusory wall on the right side of the room. Break through it and exit onto the cliff. Use the giant roots to carefully descend to the tower. When you hit the cobblestone, you’ll be invaded by Livid Pyromancer Dunnel. Once you’ve defeated him, you’ll get the spell.

He’s a powerful foe. Don’t attack him while the orb is in the field, and make sure you dodge his pyromancies. He’ll try to hold you at bay with a katana, but if you manage to get close to him and start hacking away, he’ll be down in no time.

If you haven’t unlocked the shortcut through the crypt, you can see how it’s done in our Parting Flame guide.

Floating Chaos Stats & Description

Description: Pyromancer Dunnel was fascinated by this ceremonial art employed by the clerics of the Smouldering Lake. Summons a fire-spitting chaos orb. Chaos burns away in the blink of an eye, but was the primordial life born in the Bed of Chaos, and a grievous symbol of Izalith’s sin.

The spell requires 16 points in both intelligence and faith. It costs 20 FP per cast. The orb seems invulnerable, but it has a limited amount of time before it disappears. The fireballs aren’t so much a source of damage as they are a nuissance. Try forcing your enemy to stand between you and the orb.
