Pyromancers combine early access to Pyromancy with decent physical damage. Pyromancer's are also unique in that they start at Level 1, so they possess the advantage of being able to invade any person at the start, as well as keeping at the lowest level possible. These factors make the Pyromancer a good choice for PvP builds.
The Pyromancer has quite a few advantages early in the game, including the ability to combine reasonably strong melee attacks from the Hand Axe with very potent Fireball pyromancy. Their starting armor, while decrepit looking, actually has strong resistance to both Poison and Fire, which are common hazards in the early areas of the game.
Pyromancers do, however, start with the worst shield in the game, although it is still reasonably effective up until the point where a player can obtain a better one.
The basic pyromancy trainer, Laurentius of the Great Swamp, is one of the last trainers available to the player. Therefore, pyromancers have access to no pyromancies other than Fireball until this point, that is; without the Master Key which allows anyone access to Quelana of Izalith who teaches expert level pyromancies, and Eingyi who has a secret Pyromancy Flame and toxic spells.
