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 Passive Ability
- Critical Mass: Increased critical strike chance based on Overcharge level.
- Searing Focus: Increased ranged damage.
Pyromancer Career Skill: The Burning Head – Sienna unleashes a fiery projectile that seeks out foes.

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.
MORE DISCUSSION TO COME AS THE DAYS PASS!
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.
