Thanks Atrabilious. I am going to edit the above post as people fill in the gaps in the info. That being said, even if a character has a focus on being a pyro, the stats will not reflect that, except for perhaps the spell memory? Is that correct? --- Diamond F/C: 3782 1337 7118 SS F/C : 0517 9522 9746
I love the whole "attuned with nature" theme that goes with it. Goes well with my Ranger build. --- "We have 55 characters, I'd really like an even number." "**** it, just put Wolverine in again and see if they notice."
Indeed Pyromancy is for people who don't want to pump INT,
That being said, spell damage can be RAISED by upgrading your glove.
I upgraded my Pyro hand to +15. Once your glove hits +15 you can go down to the swamp and talk to the pyro trainer (Quelana) to upgrade it to a more powerful form. It's still called "Pyromancer Flame" but the icon is different, the description is different, the +15 is gone, and you can now upgrade the new Quelana Pyro Flame to +5 for between 25,000~40,000 souls per upgrade.
BEFORE I upgraded I tested Great Fireball with the +15 flame and did 642 damage per cast on mosquitos.
After I upgraded to the Quelana flame I did 652 per cast on mosquitos.
Unfortunately, I didn't test going from +1~+15. So I only know that going from the regular flame to the quelana flame does boost damage. My quelana flame isn't upgraded yet, but I'll test that tomorrow. --- Don't know if you can run a computer game? http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/
