You’ll find all sorts of information here regarding the Pyromancer Career (for Sienna) in Vermintide 2. The Pyromancer, of all of Siennas careers, is the undoubted champion of RANGED DPS. With a highly synergistic kit, and great synergy with some item traits – Pyromancer can do some SERIOUS WORK.

Pyromancer Early Game / Starter Build Template

This is meant to be a General purpose” build for the Pyromancer which focuses on the early to midgame. I will be adding more specialized builds which require more heavy item support soon.

10 Dissipate Ashen Form
15 Blazing Equilibrium Shield of Tarnus

Pyromancer Early Game / Starter Talent Choice Discussion

L5 Talent - Natural Talent
L10 Talent - Dissipate
L15 Talent - Blazing Equilibrium
L20 Talent - Soul Snare
L25 Talent - Fiery Heart or Exhaust

Remember the above recommendations are primarily suited to be good for “most people”, specifically for “early to midgame” when gear drops can’t easily be tailor fit to your needs.


Well that’s about it (FOR NOW) regarding Sienna’s Pyromancer Career path in Vermintide 2. Strong and consistent ranged damage + with various ways to actively manage overcharge + a great ultimate = I would say Pyromancer is one of the best careers right now, IMO.
