Pyromancer Guide – 2.3

~ Hi everyone! Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments and feedback to me on this website and in-game.

When writing this guide I used Valeryy‘s frequently for referencing as well as took into account the forum thread and other users input. So had it not been for Valeryy‘s initial posting – this may not have been as detailed as it is.

The Build: …
