    I find simplicity works best. If you need fancy tricks then get creative. If your target is rolling through your fireballs then aim to catch him in the blast radius by aiming for that wall he's next to. If he keeps trying to rush you down then preempt him with a GC or fire whip. Use the mists as field control and herding tools so he'll step in the way of a fireball.

    I only use GC, GCF, GFB, and tempest, all stacked (except GCF) because that's all I need. Seriously. Just get creative.

    Oh i die everytime i do it, because im just messing with them, its just fun to do. Moat people run in fear, even if just at first, when you run at em all crazy throwin flames at em and around em and everywhere with total disregard for your own safety. happy.

    I do get serious with the build too tho, i try to focus on the fewest amount of spells as i can so i dont have to scroll through them (like you said) and try to space them out so i can get to diff types quickly. I love the whip, and (like you said) if it connects, holy s***.

    Im not sure if it has been said allready , but you can also cancel your fireball.

    If you cast a fireball , or GraveLord Greatsword Dance while you are running , immidiatly turn around 180 degrees to cancel the animation.

    You will not waste a spell by doing this and it allows for some good mindgames or mixups at least cheers

    I also like throwing in combustions during a fight while maintaining distance to create a setup , roll-attack towards right after it , or just to keep the opponent guessing twisted

    I've taken down some ganker squads with Fire Whip combos. They'll all be chasing you down and all of a sudden you turn around, CGFB in the face, and Fire Whip to close it. The damage numbers are retarded with that combo.

    Awkward moment when I state - spell animation swaps so you throw a Chaos Storm single pillar rather than your GCFB - catches people off hand. I have accidentaly done it before, also I can use GC animation for a GCFB - I only use that against glitchers.

    I'm not familiar with swap glitching.

    Interesting thing, some glitchers attempt to justify their behavior as a counter to ganking.
    Me and wolf were hosting in the burg one of us as a phantom. before I get any further I should point out we were alternating in fighting each opponent and if another invaded the second person would fight them. not ganking.
    When we had a glitcher who we eventually managed to kill I messaged the guy to ask wtf basically. He justified it as "I only do it to gankers." seems like we are at risk of a spiral of bad behavior here...

    One thing I find particularly useful if they keep trying to roll bs me is to throw a GCFB but cancel it and nail them in the face with a GC right as they roll past me. Works almost every time with roll bs'ers. You can follow up with a fire whip if you want, I've never tried that combo but I definitely will now!

    Fire whip is nasty but if it gets rolled through you are wide open since it has a mediocre range.

    Lock off fire surge. Its so good at roasting fishers of both the parry and bs variety.

    I Fire Surge any time I'm trying to get them out of melee range. If they're persistent, a GC for 600 damage will usually push 'em back. Then I go apeshit with fireballs and Fire Whip to close it. The Whip takes some time to get used to because it's easy to punish, but when you know when to use it, it's one of the best pyro spells in my opinion. If both parts connect, or all three in the case of Chaos Fire Whip, it'll outdamage pretty much anything you can do with a pyro build.

    someone rolling out of a gcf into a gc and back into the gcf lava is always funny.

    Works unless they I frame the GC by rolling into you. although that is inherently pretty risky.
