Pyromancer Hon Guide:
Pyromancer in Heroes of Newerth is quite easy to play, you don't need much experience for this hero. The skills are simple and the fact that it has range attack makes your job easier. Pyromancer is excellent in the beginning of the game and if you make items it's pretty good in the end also.
How to play Pyromancer in HON:
In the beginning of the game, choose a lane and farm as much as possible. As any other hero, you need gold to evolve and make powerful items. When you have the possibility, try to play aggressive hitting your enemies from range. Also, you have a nice stun but try not to miss. There's a small delay until the spell is casted, but this only applies to the Dragonfire skill. At higher levels, when you won't be able to still farm on lanes, you can easily farm in woods.
Items build for Pyromancer:
In the beginning, make Striders as shoes, because you'll need some speed and after maybe a Bracer for some HP. If you have more money, you can go directly for Staff of the master, but if not, a bracer won't hurt.
As I said, you can try to make Staff of the master and the first thing you have to purchase is the Glow Stone, then the others. When you have Staff of the master, your ultimate's power will increase considerably.
Because Pyromancer is a spellcaster, you could also try to make Spellshards and when you have money to upgrade them. When you have Spellshards, your skills damage will increase, and as you level up the item, you will do huge damage. This items will cost you a lot of gold, so farm and hunt your enemies when your ultimate is up. Find targets with lower HP and hit them first so you can be sure you will kill them!
