Standard Pyromancer SL 120

Starting Class: Pyromancer


35 Vigor

30 Attunement

20 Endurance

8 Vitality (base)

12 Strength (base)

12 Dexterity (shortbow for pulling)

40 Intelligence

60 Faith

7 Luck (base)

Rings: Fire/Dark Clutch mandatory, Ring of Favor and Protection (+1, +2) very much recommended, Swamp Ring, Sage's Ring (+1/2) or Witch's Ring

Catalyst: Pyromancy Flame for max damage, Saint's Talisman or Cleric's Sacred chime for healing, White Hair Talisman for the switch-lazy fellas 


With weapons you are a bit restriced but the straight sword category is really strong. I suggest Broad Sword or Longsword, though the Mace is very handy as well if you like the playstyle.

For spells I prefer Chaos Fire orb over Chaos bed Vestige. Warmth is not worth it - neither for healing nor for the 2 slots. So you will be better of using a healing miracle. With 5 slots you could go with: Chaos Fire Orb, Chaos Bed Vestige (situational), healing miracle and tears of denial.

I prefer not to have to buff my weapons mid-fight so I go with chaos- and dark infusion as main damage source and a raw and blessed infusion for resistant enemies or respawning skeletons. 

Alternatively you can of course use a raw infused weapon and buff it with Carthus Flame Ark or Dark Blade.

If you use Darkmoon Ring you can of course also implement more spells - including dark magic. The things I would aim for personally there are Dark Fire Orb or Dorhy's Gnawing.

      I personally really like using Irithyll Straight Sword. Frost Damage with Pyromaniacs, interesting. Frostbite does come in handy when I fight bosses.

        Not a good Pyro build, stats won’t go that low as well as that it depends on starter class for it to be 120 SL.

          Ok, first of all, this is SL 132 with these stats done and not 120... 60 faith is not needed, you can't even wield a longsword with this since it needs 10 dex, fire/dark clutch ring is not really a viable option but rather uses a spot for a good ring, 20 endurance is veeeery low, let's you shoot like 2 chaos bed vestiges before running out of stamina... all in all, this not a really good "not SL 120" pyro

            Help! I would like to rearrange my stats. I'm al level 80, and looking for some advise to increase int and fth, but be capable of taking some hits. This are my current stat: vig 20, att 20, end 12, vit 20, str 20, dex 20, int 25, fth 25, luck 7. I'm also wanting to use the carthus curved great sword, but guess need to put more str. I don't want to level up

              The highest FAITH requirement spells are at 45 for Soothing sunlight and Lightning Storm and the INT requirement for spells is 50 for White dragon breath, though 48 is the real important one as its CCS.

              There is no reason for FAITH to be 60 as pyro stats reach their softcap by 40/40. Best to put the last 20 points into stuff like endurance for more stamina, vitality if you want some heavier armor/weapons and don't want to fat roll, or STR/DEX if you want to wield some GSs or UGSs

                I want to reallocate my points. I have chosen a Pyro and I guess i was not following the correct path:vigor 60, attu12, endu29,vita55,stre55, dex30, inte15, faith14, luck9. I need an expert to guide me with my points so I can go and beat some asses.Thanks
