This build can get INSANE damage on bosses! Use Power Within and one of the Blade spells and watch the INSANITY! Despite being intended for co-op and pve, this build is perfectly viable for pvp due to fast damage output and access to spells like WOTG and DM/SL Blade.
This build is hard to get used to, due to no poise and no shield, but this adds challenge, and keeps you on your toes. Do try this build out, you'll not regret it!

        Very nice build. I'm on new game+ with this now, but I replaced parrying dagger with a shield, due to the fact that you can block while parrying, causing less mistakes, and I didnt feel the 2 extra frames for parry helped at all. The darkmoon blade spell was a knacker to obtain, and to use. as you need to join the covenant, but I like to kill gwyndolin before I finish the game off. Very nice either way!

          Hey there! I recently started playing and a friend pointed out this guide for me. I have a question, how did you manage to get those starting stats, when the Pyromancer starts with a different set? I didn't see the option to customize them anywhere.Thanks!
