S&B Version



You'll gain more DPS in Corrupted Mode

Grimtools :
Corrupted Lifestealer S&B Chaos Pyromancer


Video :
Fleshworks - Krieg - Last Boss Theodin Marcell


If you don't have Two Grim Fates, you can use this S&B Version.
Shields Candidate : Mythical Untouchable or Empowered Oathbreaker's Guard or Empowered Devil's Grin

The DW Version has more Damage Output
(Build had been updated on First Post)

Probably because of the loss of the 2nd proc from Grim Fate, but Blood Sigil gives you a bit more direct DPS, plus you are a bit more tanky with the shield. I would say you lose a bit against mobs, but heroes/bosses should be easier, no?


EDIT: No. I guess you cannot compensate all the goodies from Grim Fates. Just more tanky with a shield.

Yeah DW Version is better
More DPS, more Procs, more Skills Points, thus more Lifesteal

I just hope that there's good Chaos Shield with Attack Speed Boosting

How should I lvl up this build? Demo or Occu will be better? Should I just focus on fire strike w/ the buff from blood of dregg until 94 for voidring to come to play so I can convert to chaos?

I am leveling pyro, late 70s right now

I started with Occu for early AoE and into pet Dog.
At 20 swapped to dual Witchstalker with Fanatic chest and in second weapon set riftstone for Chaos Strike in case i wanted to skip some content by better movement. It was easy to rush to 50s for legendary gear. I am sticking with same setup, just changing guns every gear jump level, probably till i will be able to equip the 90 relic.

You can also leveling with :
- Greater Fireblast (LMB) (Flintcore Bolts component socketing into guns, crossbows, or caster off-hand) combine with Conflagration (RMB)
Take a gun and then put Greater Fireblast on your Left Click, and Conflagration Laser on Right Click.
Conflagration for Bosses since it consume a lot of energy (ectoplasms can help for Energy problem)
Curse of Frailty's Vulnerability for Elemental RR --> Just spare points into Vulnerability, and less points in CoF.
Flashbang for reduce enemies DA + Crowd Control (CC).
Blood of Dreeg for Healing.
Don't forget to take Blast Shield for Cicuit Breaker (you play glass canon style)

- BWC Spamming + Thermite Mine + CoF Vulnerability
Flashbang again for DA Shred + CC.
Blast Shield + Blood of Dreeg for Defensive Layers

- DW Fire Strike
Dual Wield Range or Melee weapons and use FS as Default Weapon Attack.
CoF's Vulnerability for RR.
Flashbang + Blast Shield + BWC High Potency + Blood of Dreeg for Defensive Layers.
Don't forget to take Vindictive Flame + Solael's Witchfire for Attack Speed

- Leveling with DEE (Dreeg's Evil Eye)
You can choose Spam or use Focused Gaze (transmuter)
I tried the spamming version a long time ago.
Put DEE into Left Click Button.
Slithtongue + Mark of Dreeg is nice for DEE
CoF's Vulnerability + Acid Spray for RR

- Bloody Pox + CoF + Sigil of Consumption + Doom Bolt + Possesion + Hellfire Mine
Chaos Vitality theme.
Bloody Pox nice for mobs, and Doom Bolt for Bosses.
Watch out for Fevered Rage transmuter, you can make Cronley become Fabius...
You can use this if you have nice gear support.

- Actually there're others leveling ways
You can use pets, mortar trap, stun jacks, canister bomb, etc...
Choose one that you like and having fun

- A little tips for leveling, if you want to grind xp by fighting mobs over and over, it's better if you take quests while do the xp grinds
This way, you'll get more xp from quest and some nice quest rewards.
Also if you have xp potions or gear that give more experience like Gazer Man, don't hesitate to use it. Lvling will be faster
Try to avoid enemies / areas that your toon can't afford.
Die over and over will make you lost a lot of XP...
Come back when you have more good gear or level

Note :
*CoF's Vulnerability and Flashbang, both of them has DA Shred.
But the biggest reduction will take effects (they don't stack)
Since Flashbang has greater reduction, it'll likely Flashbang will win over Vulnerability.

Since Flashbang and Vulnerability DA's Shred is different, they stack
Flashbang doesn't stack with same type DA shred like Markovian's Advantage

If you play Elemental Builds, Vulnerability will reduces your enemies Resistances
30% Elemental RR means :
30% Resistance Reduction to Fire
30% Resistance Reduction to Lightning
30% Resistance Reduction to Cold

*Demolitionist Flame Touched, and Occultist Blood of Dreeg are two skills that will boost your Toon's OA
Even if you are not playing Fire Builds, just take Flame Touched for sweet Flat OA

*BWC High Potency or DEE Focused Gaze (Both are Transmuters)
Use one of them for reduced enemy Physical Damage.
Sometimes it will help you alot

*Pyromancer tend to have low HP due to it's Mastery Combination
Corpse Dust on rings/amulet can help for increasing your toon's HP

*For mobility, Pyromancer doesn't have default Blink Skills
You can use Riftstone component for Chaos Strike Blink Skills.
Later you can use Korvaak's Deception for Blazing Charge

*If you are playing Elemental Builds, take Elemental Storm (Rhowan Crown Constellation) and bound it to CoF
CoF ticks great for triggering Elemental Storm.
You can also use BWC Agonizing Flame for Flat RR.
Reminder : it doesn't stack with Elemental Storm Flat RR, choose one

*If you play Fire Builds, take Meteor Shower and bound it to Flashbang or CoF
You'll see more Meteor Rains this way...

*Healing
There are several Healing in Pyromancer, I listed them, in case you wanna try them :
Occultist :
- Blood of Dreeg
This is a must taken skills for any Occultist builds
It's too good to passed out.
It gives you instant heal, flat health regen, OA, and last but not the least : Aspect of The Guardian
Aspect of The Guardian will give you two Guardians: 1. Physical Resist, 2. Posion & Acid Resist
Posion & Acid Resist will help you Alot in capping Resistances matter ^^

- Sigil of Consumption
It has it's own Lifesteal, nice for helping you sustains HP in battle

- Raven's Mend Flesh (Summon Familiar)
I usually use Ravens for two purpose : 1. Healing, 2. Boosting elemental Damage
Actually I'm not sure how the mechanic of Raven's Mend Flesh skills, what is HP threshold for activating it?
Sometimes I find it usefull in rogue dungeon, and sometimes I think it's master who take care of it's own pet (healing, reviving)

Demolitionist :
- Vindictive Flame
It gives you Flat Healt Regen + Total Speed
Sometimes 11/16 is enough
If you want more, you can max it

- Blast Shield
This skills actually not a Healing Skills. But it'll give you Damage Absorption + Maximum to All Resistances
which are good for shielding you from bad AoE damages.
Blast Shield combine with Phoenix will give nice Damage Absorption and some Fire Retaliation

- Flashbang
This one also is not a healing skills.
Chance to Confuse is great for CC (Crowd Control)


Back to this Build (Chaos Grim Fate Melee Pyro)
When you reach level 58 you already have access to Normal Grim Fate
You can start to play this build style.
And when you reach lvl 75 on Ultimate later, you can equip The Infernal Knight Sets

Please post your current toon's grimtools if you have any questions regarding this build
