    Default Is Pyro Wimpy?

    I've looked at many builds and have seen none with Pyro as a main soul. Few builds have Pyro and most have few points in it.

    I played a little over a year ago and left, then recently returned. I liked Pyro back then.

    Did it get nerfed? Is Pyro an inferior dps soul?

    BTW, I PVE. I don't PVP.

    The thing with Pyro is that it requires you to stand still for 5s or 6s or more. The raids in SL require you to do the opposite.

    I still enjoy 42 pyro for overworld soloing... Harb is also cool for soloing but I'm a ranged caster at heart and pyro is fun for the kite & nuke style. I don't think anyone raids with pyro anymore though.

    Even in expert dungeons I don't see any Pyros. If I'm not mistaken, I didn't group with a single Pyromancer too while doing regular SL dungeons. Trion needs to do something with this soul as it is currently useless.

    The pyro soul was severely modified in 2.1.7. The goal was to make it better but it ended up heavily nerfing it And right after the change Kervik has gone to vocation so it has not yet gained back it's usability. We are still waiting for Kervik to come back and do something really useful.

    Kervik was stuck on a cruise ship...

    I heard it was a "Natural Splendor" of a time!
