More specifically, early on in your adventure, a fire magic-wielding witch-like enemy is quite commonly encountered (as highlighted in the image above). They appear in black cloaks, brandish a spear, and enjoy throwing fiery projectiles at the player when they least expect it. They also possess terrific aim, which means the attack will usually hit its mark.

Around four of these enemy types can be found near the Redcopse Village Entrance, aka the Vestige of Hannelore, which can be encountered shortly after the first boss.

Purchasing from a Trader

Secondly, you can also purchase Minor Fire Salts from Thehk-Ihir for 250 Vitality per pop. This cloaked NPC can de encountered when you arrive at the Shuja Hamlet, aka the Vestige of the Pale Butcher shortly after the Forsaken Fen area.

Once you speak to him and exhaust his dialogue, he’ll spawn at the Skywest hub area, near the Vestige of Ethyrg. He’ll be stood opposite to Andreas of Ebb and Stommund, Captain of the Fidelis and will have 100 Minor Wither Salts to sell to the player.
