Everything You Need to Know About the Pyromancer Class in Outriders

Pyromancer Outriders

What the heck is a Pyromancer in Outriders? You may have heard of a game developed by People Can Fly called “Outriders.” Outriders is a brand new looter-shooter that is inspired by several different games in the looter-shooter genre including Destiny, Borderlands, and even other games such as Gears of War and Diablo. Within Outriders, there are several different classes that you can choose to play including Devastator, Technomancer, Trickster, and my current main, Pyromancer. Pyromancer is all about raining hellfire down upon your enemies with its wide assortment of blazing abilities. So let’s take a little deep dive into what the Pyromancer class is and what abilities you have access to while using the Pyromancer in Outriders, and maybe you’ll find that this is exactly the class that you’re looking for!

Pyromancer Class

In Outriders, the Pyromancer class is a medium-range conjurer of fire. As a Pyromancer, you have a couple of intrinsic class-specific perks including:

  • Melee skill: Deal damage and inflict Burn on enemies within a small radius
  • Healing mechanic: As the Pyromancer, you will recover health whenever enemies marked by your skills are killed
  • Receive additional 10% Anomaly Power
  • Skills Mark damaged enemies for 15 seconds. Killing a Marked heals you by 24% of your Max Health

Assigning Pyromancer Skills

So, we’ve talked about some of the intrinsic abilities that you have as a Pyromancer, but what about the actual skills? Well, there’s a pretty extensive skill tree that can lead you down 3 different paths, but there’s also a separate skill page in the menu, this is where you will go to actually assign the skills you have unlocked. Here are the individual skills that you unlock as you level up your Outrider:

  • Heatwave: Summon a fiery wave that deals damage and inflicts Burn onto all enemies in its path
    • Type: Ignite
  • Feed the Flames: Select and pull an enemy towards you dealing damage and draining health and inflicting Ash
