BALANCE: Class Pyromancer
Anyone else think of all the classes this one needs some tweaking?

The range, the cooldowns, the dmg output per move just seems to be a bit crazy. Compared to the rest.

Pyromancers are fun. If you think they're a bit OP, play one for a bit and see if you can dominate in Forge. Almost any class in the hands of a strong player is OP. :) Pyromancer was part of the original four and so has gone through a few cycles of balance already, so it's pretty close to where it needs to be.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. With TINKER in Forge, there may be a need to review balance, but we're waiting on player feedback and a look through the stats before we do any 'tinkering'.

Turrets should disappear if you kill the tinker, that the only issue I have saw with him. Its dmg feels low but have a lot of utility.

Some pyromancers would beg to differ! :)

Pyromancer is a pure damage class with almost no utility. They also have the lowest base physical armor. If you can get on them depending on the skill of the player they should crumble beneath you. They are great at long range poke and can put out a lot of pressure if ignored.

Well it is a team game, why are you fighting by yourself? If anything shaman is OP. One played decently on a team vs. a team without one will win every time.

The pyromancer is the best long range character, if your trying to play long range hit and run against a pyro chances are you'll lose, because of his dots and superior range.

Remember to not hit the pyromancer when your close to him (10 yards or so) when he has the flame armor on. Yellow sparks will surrond his body when this armor is on, and will dissapear after it expires.

Ya shaman is powerful in pubs because noone is focusing him.... next time you play try to pressure only the enemy healer... you'll have surprising results.
Also remember that are pubs: in competitive situation playing shaman is really really hard trust me.
