Pyrokinetics is the skillful manipulation of the Fire Element, and many of the skills in this group are AoE skills. Mastery of Pyrokinetics depends on a character's Intelligence. Pyrokinetics has the only Stun-removal skill in game, Purifying Fire. The most damaging of the Elemental skill groups, Pyrokinetic skills only have one detrimental Status Effect: Burning-20% Fire Resistance
+40% Water Resistance
Fire Damage Over Time
Purifying Fire , which deals additional damage over time.
Tactical Considerations: Some feel that using haste on physical DPS is almost always better than anything you could do here unless you cast Lava Core, the one nearly infinite damage skill in the game. If specializing in Pyrokinetics, it may be advisable to get your tank as much Fire Resistance as possible, as the Area-of-Effect skills can easily hit allies. AoE skills include: Small Fireball, Infectious Flame, Meteor Shower, and Lava Core, all of which can also act as heals if the tank has over 100% Fire Resistance. Consider opening fights with Fire Shield (see below) on the tank.
Pyrokinetic abilities are best used in conjuction with oil surfaces. not necessarily to damage enemies but to control the battlefield. Setting an oil surface aflame will create a dark cloud that impedes targeting both inside and through it. As such, pyrokinetics can be used to mitigate damage, force enemies to walk through a fire surface or funnel them into a specific location.
