Pyroclasm is Vaan's level 3 Quickening. As with all level 3 Quickenings, it deals damage equal to a random number between 1 and 230 multiplied by Vaan's Strength, and costs three Mist Charges to execute.
Pyroclasm is Vaan's Quickening, acquired by defeating Belias. It deals heavy damage to all enemies over the targeted area.
Pyroclasm is the third HP attack that Vaan can use. It can charge up to 3 levels, which increases its size and range.
Pyroclasm is Vaan's EX attack, acquired through his Demonsbane weapon. It deals 4 fire-based magic BRV attacks before ending with an HP attack. Non-targeted enemy units receive 20% splash damage.
Pyroclasm is an ability exclusive to Vaan, learned at level 40. During Battle Music Sequences, each time a boss-type enemy enters, Pyroclasm damages that enemy based on Vaan's Strength, Magic and Level.
Pyroclasm is an exclusive reactive ability that costs 18 CP to equip. It is activated in Battle Music Sequence (BMS) when a boss-class enemy appears. It deals damage in direct proportion to Strength, Magic, and level. It is learned by Vaan (level 40).
One of Vaan's cards can use the Pyroclasm ability. The player chooses 1 Forward, and deals it 2000 damage for each Backup they control. Pyroclasm requires two Wind CP and Dulling Vaan to use.
Pyro comes from the Greek word πυρ (pyr) meaning "fire."
