The comments here really don't live up to my experience. A white phantom sent 8 of these in a row at me while I was fighting as a Spear of the Church. Dodged them all, while simultaneously having to keep the host off my back. And I'm not bragging either -- my record in PvP isn't anything exceptional. It's just that, reading the comments posted below, you'd think this pyromancy was way more punishing than it actually is. The tracking is better than most spells, but as long as you keep your eye on it, it's piss easy to dodge.
