Most of them wont budge while I break LOS/range to heal, then move back in to Dot/nuke. If they do move, then back to step one (stun/silence/fear).

    Having a spell reflect makes fighting pyro's especially easy and fun.

    If you don't have these kinds of abilities then either stay away from pyro's (easy to spot since they are usually standing on one of their grounds). Or respec to a build that is more suited for PVP.

    And ya, sometimes a pyro will sneak up on me and two or three shot me, but its rare and usually my own fault for not paying attention.
    Your logic has no place on these forums.

    Thumbs up

    I laugh at people saying pyromancer is op. I've fought a pyromancer the other day also. Of course constant stuns but what of it? I still pwned his *** with a lvl 40 justicar build. All he could do was try and run away stunning me and turning me into a rabit. He never got me below 4.5k hp from 5k he at most hit me for 400. This is so pathetic to hear these lame threads. Pyromancers take an extreme amount of damage. Their attacks are pretty slow. (at least cinder burst) It is a pure dps soul nothing else. (aka if you want the best chance against a pyromancer Tanks work the best) It just has to do what classes counter other classes. Like every soul has a counter soul. Every Build has a counter build. People just QQ because they either 1. suck 2. can't be smart enough to come up with a good build 3. Have an Iq below 5.

    51 point assassin has a perma stealth so take your time, get behind him and open up with paralysing strke, jagged strike, puncture, impale, foul play, jagged strike, jagged strike, backstab, final blow.

    if the pyro isnt quite dead then use slip away if you feel your in danger and let your bleeds finish him off, you will have crit at some point during that so you can slot in a serpent strike somewhere too.

    this is the build; http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...ARftsfqddR.V0x

    I'm sorry but I dont have a warrior high enough to comment yet.

    How can you open with Paralysing strike and Jagged strike at the same time? Last time i checked, both are stealthy opening.


    Btw, as a 34ass/32NB, i never get killed by a pyro. The rotation is easy:

    1: Stealth
    2: Elusiveness
    3: Run away

    I play Pyro and people kill me all the time.

    I also suck at PvP . . . never played it before just recently.

    My point is that you need a greater sample. One interaction doesn't provide any conclusions.

    As a tank in pvp i know that...

    When my health goes down a half in 1 sec, i have a pyro on me and i am accurate 95% of the time. (maybe 100%).

    Story that goes once upon a time i killed a pyro, so pyro are not op does not proove anything at all. To me its trolling all the way. Get numbers, action videos, rotation (abilities uses by both players), then we can judge if he lacked skills (!) or wasnot totally awaken. Did he knocked you away did he recast his GoS??? Too many unanswered question too judge a single fight to prove any point.

    BTW: There are many bugs IMO mage should fizzle some spells or tank should block some of them (parry,dodge, block). In the same way that i should not be allowed to disarm animals...

    I can kill bad pyros too, and I'm an assassin. I should go make a thread right now!
    Look at your post, now back to mine, now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped being nonconstructive and dumb and started posting about something that makes sense, it could look like it's mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a page with the post your post could look like. Anything is possible when you post like me, and not like an idiot. I'm on a forum.
