Dark Souls 3: Cornyx of the Great Swamp

Beware the flame.


Dark Souls 3: Cornyx of the Great Swamp

The primary pyromancy trainer, Cornyx "Corny" of the Great Swamp is an essential vendor. Once unlocked, he awards the player a Pyromancy Flame, and can upgrade Pyromancy Flames as well as selling you new pyromancy spells.

Recruit Cornyx in Undead Settlement by letting him out of a cage and accepting his services.

Speak to Cornyx twice at Firelink Shrine to receive the Welcome emote.

Bring the Great Swamp Pyromancy Tome, Carthus Pyromancy Tome and Izalith Pyromancy Tome to Cornyx to unlock new and powerful pyromancy spells.

Mysteriously, if you summon the NPC spirit Great Swamp Cuculus in Smouldering Lake and defeat Old Demon King, you can collect the Spotted Whip and Cornyx's Armour set from near the cage in Undead Settlement where you first met Cornyx.
