Pyromancer Starting Equipment



Notes About This Class

  • Beginning at level 1, this class is among the stronger starting options in the game due to its early access to pyromancy and good general stat distribution as well as having the lowest soul requirements to level up.
  • Keep in mind that even though the Pyromancy Flame may say it scales with Intelligence, pyromancy spell damage does not actually scale with Intelligence, or any stat at all for that matter. It's only for its melee punch attack. The best one can do to improve Pyromancy stat-wise is raising Dexterity to increase casting speed

      So even though pyramcy is the most stat point efficient kind of magic the pyromancer is a horrible starting class, since he has a little bit of everything, which results in wasted points in stats you dont make a use of, missing elsewhere.

        Everyone seems to forget that, because it starts at SL 1, this class is the most flexible to build anything you want starting early on due to cheeper level ups

          Actually this class is just as good at faith builds as a cleric is... possibly better since you have an extra point in resistances.
