    The build is extremely difficult to use due to the close range of pyromancies. I was getting killed a lot of times.

    For glass cannon builds I'd always stick to Int builds usually, the other two magics are much more close ranged than sorcery can be, hence why sorcery makes the best glass cannon build (in addition to having highest ranged firepower too)

    For this build... You can accuse it of a lack of power, but it's just so fragile for how long the casting times for pyro are, added to how short range it is. You'll have to be extremely smart in your pyro use to really get many kills with the build.. Stealthy PvP is what would work best, except the power within screws that notion over :|

    Personally, I think glass cannons are best used for low level trolling. Any experienced PvPer is going to get some hits in, and that's game over for you.

    Even with all that pyro, you're still gonna have to get awfully close to do any damage. That said, if you can dodge and weave like a pro, the enemy won't have any time to get a hit off.

    I wouldn't recommend the red tearstone, you will be dead before 30% health

    If he combines power within and Red tearstone he'll finish the fight with a single pyro.

    It could be better, I would place sanctus on your off hand and just menu swap the flames right after PW-ing up. Gives you a bit more time, specially when RTSR kicks in.

    Eki- I'm doing that. Sanctus helps a bit, but one of the fights PW killed me. GC did 1400 damage to a giants armor.

    Muy bien. Now all you have to do is fine the chaos storm and fire tempest bs-buffer zone so you can just one shot multiple people at once!
