Outriders: Pyromancer guide - best builds

In the following build guide for Outriders we explain:

  • What to expect from the Pyromancer class
  • How the skill tree is built
  • How the skill branches differ
  • How to skill our example builds
  • Which build you can use in the Worldslayer DLC

The pyromancer in Outriders: description and characteristics

The pyromancer, also called the pyromancer, is the ruler of fire in Outriders. With this class, you summon flames and set your opponents on fire. The Pyromancer is suitable for medium-range combat, placing it between the front-line Assassin and Devastator and the long-range Technomancer.

Unlike the Technomancer, the Pyromancer deals more area damage with its burning abilities. For those who prefer using firearms, the Pyromancer can specialize in sniper rifles and handguns. The Pyromancer heals itself by inflicting Burn damage on enemies. As long as the attackers are on fire, his life energy increases.

This also applies to the melee attacks available from the start. Both can invoke the Incinerate status on enemies:

  • From a standing start, the Pyromancer uses a Fire Blast.
  • If you run towards enemies, he will leap into the air and unleash a massive punch on the ground. He launches a wave of fire that catches all attackers in the impact radius.

These active abilities are mastered by Technomancers in Outriders

Pyromancers earn a total of eight active abilities throughout the gameplay of Outriders. You can equip three of them at the same time. However, you can exchange them at any time as long as they are not currently in cooldown. Pyromancers have mastered the game of fire. Her abilities deal burn damage, interrupting, and causing explosions, damaging large numbers of enemies at once.

The Pyromancer skill tree

As with all classes, the Pyromancer's passive abilities are divided into three main branches. For the Pyromancer, these are Ashbreaker, Firestorm, and Arsonist. You unlock the skill nodes listed on it with the total of twenty class points that you earn during the campaign. You can distribute them as you like in the various branches, but you can only achieve many of the perks if you specialize.

Tip:  The passive skills can be reset at any time and at no cost. You can then redistribute the earned class points. So you can easily try different skill paths during gameplay.

What is the difference between the Ashbreaker, Firestorm, and Firestarter Pyromancer branches?

The Ash Crusher class branch increases the values ​​of immobilized skills and abilities that inflict the Ash status effect. You can also train your pyromancer here to become a weapon specialist. Many buffs increase weapon damage and armor penetration.

The best way to jump into the fray is with the Firestorm branch. Here the Pyromancer becomes robust, increases its life points and armor values, ​​and optimizes its ignition abilities.

For those who prefer to use Pyromancer's active abilities best, consider the Firestarter branch. Here you increase the anomaly power, improve explosiveness skills and get a second chance with the “Phoenix Chick” perk if your life energy actually drops to zero.

Pyromancer build for Outriders Worldslayer: Explosivo - Worldslayer Edition

Our Explosivo build also works beautifully in Outriders Worldslayer and is made even more powerful with the PAX talents and Ascension tree.

In the class tree you award the talent points as stated above - but you have a little more leeway. For example, you can trade “With Fire and Gun” for “Annihilation”.

Also, get the Heat Seeker armor set that was added with Worldslayer. You get the set bonus when you equip three pieces of armor and it boosts your “Fire Bomb” skill. The bonus causes the incendiary bomb to jump to the enemy with the lowest life points after a successful explosion - up to three times. However, this Incendiary Bomb does 50 percent less damage. Nevertheless, you increase the AoE damage significantly with the set.

To add the finishing touches to your gear, you should target your mods to boost the Incendiary Bomb.

PAX talents for the Worldslayer Explosivo

  1. melting point
  2. Demolitionist
  3. Convection
  4. smoke explosion
  5. trigger sequence

Ascension Points: Full anomaly power ahead

In the new Ascension system, invest your points in Anomaly Power and Damage first, then Resistance Puncture and Elite Monster Damage, then Cooldown Reduction to get the most out of the Worldslayer Explosivo build.
