Playing the Pyromancer

True role of death, the Pyromancer belongs to the innocent people, and has the power to kill by exploding multiple players at once.


His objective is the defeat the Werewolves. Every night, the Pyromancer has the choice to place a Greek fire with a player, or to trigger an explosion.
The Pyromancer can kill members from his own party, therefore he needs to have a strategy.
There is no limited number of barrels to be placed, but if the Pyromancer dies without triggering an explosion, the players will remain alive. Be careful, contrary to the Witch, the Pyromancer must be alive in the morning so the explosion sets off.


The first night

From a strategic point of view, it is recommended to do nothing, and to wait for the second night to eventually place your first barrel. In fact you have no information on the game, and you statistically have more of a risk to target an innocent person rather than a wolf.

A question of timing

Be careful not to trigger your bombs too late, you might die before you get the chance.
Although planting bombs and making them explode an always turn the tide of a game which looked a bad start for one or the other side.

The infected Pyromancer

If you are infected by the Black Wolf, do not hesitate a single second to place barrels every night on the innocent people, and to explode everything as soon as you'll be sure to have the bigger numbers.
The infected Pyromancer is a remarkable weapon for the Wolves if they know how to play their role on time.
