Powertech Pyrotech Basics Guide

Pyrotech

Need a light? The Pyrotech-style Powertech add fuel to any firefight with an abundance of vivid, searing flame attacks. From fistfuls of fire to missiles loaded with highly combustible compounds, the Pyrotech’s arsenal allows them to never back down while making sure their enemy burns out in a blaze of destruction.

  • Role: Damage
  • Type: Damage Over Time
  • Weapon: Blaster Pistol
  • Distance: Short Range
  • Mirror: Vanguard – Plasmatech

Pyrotech for New Players

  • Pyrotech is very mobile and very easy to jump and move around with while playing.
  • It is a short-range class, but you can use many of your abilities even if you are farther away, making it easy to hit enemies even if you are not very coordinated when it comes to making your way to your enemy.
  • All of your abilities can just be used right away, you don’t need to activate them first in any way.
  • Pyrotech is a DOT or damage-over-time class, which means you set things on fire – then let them burn over time. So to do big damage you need to learn to not simply set your enemy on fire over and over.

How to play a Pyrotech Powertech

You can start playing Pyrotech at level 1. To start playing Pyrotech, you will need to first create a Powertech character, which can be played by Troopers, Bounty Hunters, Smugglers or Imperial Agents.

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Pyrotech from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

Level 80

5 Ability Basic Rotation

Not quite ready to learn all your abilities yet? Use this quick 5-ability rotation for the Pyrotech until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  • Scorch is your biggest damage over time (DoT) ability and lasts a long time. Start with applying this!
  • Incendiary Missile is your other DoT skill, and having both it and Scorch on the target will increase the rest of your damage. Watch your debuffs to see when it’s going to run out of time as it will run out sooner than Scorch!
  • Flaming Fist does a ton of damage.
  • Immolate is another great attack to use while your damage over time stuff is applied, and can be buffed by another move covered below. Immolate makes Flame Burst glow and cost no energy.
  • Flame Burst will be your main attack when Flaming Fist is down and your DoTs are already applied. You will run out of heat fast – so alternate between using Rapid Shots instead of Flame Burst to reduce heat.

Multiple Enemies 

  • Use Deadly Onslaught to do tons of damage to up to 8 targets. It can be very expensive heat-wise, but well worth it in large packs of enemies.
  • Searing Wave is a great ability both single target (mentioned in the Extra Tips) and AoE, as it can spread your Incendiary Missile to all targets caught in the cone with it!
  • Flame Sweep is your area-damage version of Flame Burst. Use this when onslaught is used up.

Extra Tips

  • Use Vent Heat to get heat down.
  • Feeling spicy? Use Searing Wave after Flame Burst makes it glow and it will give Immolate extra damage!
  • Feeling EXTRA spicy? Use Rail Shot when it’s glowing – it will always glow after Flaming Fist.
  • Feeling SUPER SPICY? Thermal Yield and Explosive Fuel boost your damage. Use them as often as possible after your damage over time abilities are applied but before you start using Flaming Fist.
  • Feeling SUPER EXTRA spicy? Use your orange Shoulder Cannon to do burst damage. It doesn’t respect the global cooldown, so keep it on a spam-able key and do it alongside everything else!
  • Feeling SO SPICY YOU JUST CAN’T STOP? If you’re waiting for a fight to start, spin around in a circle away from your enemy by using Flame Sweep twice to boost your damage early!

Pyrotech is a class that can have a lot of additional layers of complexity if you want to add them.

Level 80

Before you play…

Making your Scorch (every 30 seconds) and Incendiary Missiles (every 15 seconds) debuffs more visible on your enemy can make it easier to know when they are about to fall off.

  1. Press ESC on your keyboard, choose Interface Editor from the menu
  2. Select the “Target Frame” box where the portrait of your enemy would appear
  3. In the center box, scroll down and check 🔲 Highlight Debuff, then scroll down more and check 🔲 Personal Debuffs
  4. Save. This will show your own debuffs highlighted in gold so you don’t mix them up with your groups’!

  • Recharge and Reload - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Determination - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10
  • Quell - Interrupt - Every class has an interrupt ability that allows them to interrupt an enemy while they are casting. Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling.

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Pyrotech Powertech with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Pyrotech Powertech, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Pyrotech Powertech.

Level 23 Choice: Flaming Fist Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Flaming Fist to change at level 23. Your options are Primed Ignition, Open Flame, and Heatstroke.

Flaming Fist

Engages the jetpack and ignites your gauntlet, allowing you to strike the target with a flaming fist that deals kinetic damage and elemental damage.

Primed Ignition

Flaming Fist leaves traces of Ignition Fuel on the target causing your next Immolate or Flame Burst to deal 30% more damage. This effect can only occur once every 30 seconds.

Flaming Fist leaves traces of Ignition Fuel on the target causing your next Immolate or Flame Burst to deal 30% more damage. This effect can only occur once every 30 seconds.

Open Flame

Flaming Fist deals damage up to 4 enemies within 5 meters of the primary target.

Flaming Fist deals damage up to 4 enemies within 5 meters of the primary target.

Heatstroke

Flaming Fist builds a stack of Heatstroke increasing the damage of your Combustible Gas Cylinder by 25% per stack. Lasts for 20 seconds. This effect can stack up to 4 times.

Flaming Fist builds a stack of Heatstroke increasing the damage of your Combustible Gas Cylinder by 25% per stack. Lasts for 20 seconds. This effect can stack up to 4 times.

General Suggestion: Heatstroke - Flaming Fist is your big melee hit ability, and Combustible Gas Cylinder is a passive damage source thats working in the background all the time as you fight. Heatstroke will be free extra damage without having to change the way you play Pyrotech at all!

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 27 choice are Heat Chain, Manhunter, and Jet Charge.

Heat Chain

Grappling hook is engulfed in fire and places Heat Chain on the target. This deals elemental damage and slows the target over 6 seconds.

Manhunter

Grapple gets two charges and finishes the cooldown of Rocket Punch and Flaming Fist.

Grapple gets two charges and finishes the cooldown of Rocket Punch and Flaming Fist.

Jet Charge

Jet to a distant target dealing kinetic damage, interrupting the target's current action and immobilizing the target for 2 seconds. Cannot be used against targets in cover. Using Jet Charge grants Battering Ram, resetting the cooldown of Jet Charge and increasing movement speed by 30% for 6 seconds. While Battering Ram is active, Jet Charge may be used once within 10 meters of the target and deals 50% additional damage but does not cause an additional interrupt, immobilize or charge. This effect cannot occur more than once every 15 seconds.

Jump to a faraway enemy.

General Suggestion: Jet Charge - Taking Jet Charge and adding a leap to your Powertech makes you 100% more mobile and this one can be re-cast right away for additional damage! This also has an added benefit of not being a passive that relies on Grapple - which would generate high threat.

Level 39 Choice: Incendiary Missile Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Incendiary Missile to change at level 39. Your options are Mandalorian Warhead, Primed Rail Shot, and Whistling Birds.

Incendiary Missile

Fires a missile that explodes on contact, igniting the target for elemental damage and an additional elemental damage over 15 seconds.

Mandalorian Warhead

Fires a missile that explodes on contact, igniting the target for elemental damage. In addition, Mandalorian Warhead will now make targets assailable, increasing the elemental and internal damage the targets take by 7%. Replaces Incendiary Missile.

Primed Rail Shot

When you deal damage with Incendiary Missile, your next Rail Shot applies Burning Shot, dealing elemental damage over 12 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

When you deal damage with Incendiary Missile, your next Rail Shot applies Burning Shot, dealing elemental damage over 12 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

Whistling Birds

Incendiary Missile deals damage up to 4 targets and applies a detonator to each target it hits. When the targets are hit by Searing Wave each detonator explodes dealing damage to each target.

Incendiary Missile deals damage up to 4 targets and applies a detonator to each target it hits. When the targets are hit by Searing Wave each detonator explodes dealing damage to each target.

General Suggestion: Primed Rail Shot - Pyrotech is a damage over time-based damage discipline. A talent that gives you an additional damage over time effect is invaluable as it is what you specialize in already. Remember to press your glowing rail shot after every Incendiary Missile for 12 seconds of burn damage!

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 43 choice are Boiling Point, Chilled Retribution, and Stealth Scan.

Boiling Point

When activating Kolto Overload you gain Boiling Point. This allows your next Thermal Yield to gain an additional stack and return damage to attacks or your next Sonic Missile will heal allies and grant you 10% damage reduction.

When activating Kolto Overload you gain Boiling Point. This allows your next Thermal Yield to gain an additional stack and return damage to attacks or your next Sonic Missile will heal allies and grant you 10% damage reduction.

Chilled Retribution

When activating Energy Shield you gain 25% movement speed and immunity from incapacitating effects for 6 seconds. In addition when taking damage from direct attacks your cooldown on Carbonize is reduced by 2 seconds. This can occur once every 3 seconds.

Stealth Scan

Fires off probes that scan the area for stealthed opponents for 15 seconds. In addition, any targets it reveals are immobilized for 3 seconds and increases the movement speed of all allies within the scan area, excluding yourself, by 50% for as long as they remain within it and for 6 seconds after it expires or they leave the area.

General Suggestion: Boiling Point - Adding an extra stack to one of your most important buffs and allowing it to reflect damage is very powerful, not to mention the ability to turn your detaunt into a defensive that heals allies! Only Pyrotechs have access to this and it's pretty good!

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 51 choice are Pyro Shield, Gyroscopic Alignment Jets, and Iron Will.

Pyro Shield

When activated, your Energy Shield ignites in a blaze, scorching attackers for elemental damage when they deal direct damage to you. This effect cannot occur more than once each second.

Iron Will

Reduces the cooldown of Determination by 30 seconds and the cooldown of Vent Heat by 15 seconds.

Reduces the cooldown of Determination by 30 seconds and the cooldown of Vent Heat by 15 seconds.

General Suggestion: Pyro Shield - Choose Pyro Shield to do some free damage to your enemy every time you get hit!

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 64 choice are Reflective Armor, Hitman, and Suppressive Tools.

Reflective Armor

When Close and Personal is triggered, it will also deal elemental damage to the attacker if the attacker is within 10 meters.

When Close and Personal is triggered, it will also deal elemental damage to the attacker if the attacker is within 10 meters.

Hitman

Reduces the cooldown of Quell by 2 seconds. Additionally, all area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Sonic Missile is activated.

Reduces the cooldown of Quell by 2 seconds. Additionally, all area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Sonic Missile is activated.

Suppressive Tools

Magnetic Blast, Flame Burst, and Flame Sweep reduce the movement speed of affected targets by 25% for 3 seconds. Additionally, Neural Dart slows the target by 50% for 6 seconds.

Magnetic Blast, Flame Burst, and Flame Sweep reduce the movement speed of affected targets by 25% for 3 seconds. Additionally, Neural Dart slows the target by 50% for 6 seconds.

General Suggestion: Hitman - The reduced damage from area attacks makes this very useful for staying alive in any content with area-wide damage (which is almost all). Combined with a reduced interrupt cooldown, and this choice makes any fight with mechanics a little easier to survive! If you feel you don't need the damage reduction, Reflective Armor is a good option for some free damage.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 68 choice are Shield Cannon, Hydraulic Overrides, and Electro Dart.

Shield Cannon

Damaging a target with your Shoulder Cannon missiles heals you for 3% of your total health.

Damaging a target with your Shoulder Cannon missiles heals you for 3% of your total health.

Hydraulic Overrides

Grants 10 seconds of immunity from all movement-impairing effects, knockdowns and physics and increases movement speed by 75%.

Grants 10 seconds of immunity from all movement-impairing effects, knockdowns and physics and increases movement speed by 75%.

Electro Dart

Fires an electro dart, dealing energy damage and stunning the target for 4 seconds.

You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.

General Suggestion: Hydraulic Overrides - All three choices here are good, but Hydraulic Overrides should be your default to help make powertech feel a little more mobile. If extra survivability is needed, swap to Shield Cannon, and Electro Dart is a great 4 second stun if your enemies aren't immune to such effects.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Powertech abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Pyrotech Powertech for the Level 73 choice are Enhanced Paralytics, Sonic Rebounder, and Efficient Suit.

Enhanced Paralytics

Increases the stun durations of Electro Dart by 1 second and Carbonize by 0.5 seconds.

Increases the stun durations of Electro Dart by 1 second and Carbonize by 0.5 seconds.

Sonic Rebounder

Sonic Missile protects all friendly targets in its area of impact, excluding you, granting Sonic Rebounder, which reflects the next direct, single-target attack back at the attacker.

Sonic Missile protects all friendly targets in its area of impact, excluding you, granting Sonic Rebounder, which reflects the next direct, single-target attack back at the attacker.

Efficient Suit

Allows Kolto Overload to be activated while stunned and causes Kolto Overload to purge most stun effects when activated. In addition, increases the range of Grapple and Shoulder Cannon by 10 meters and eliminates the heat generated by Electro Dart and Carbonize.

Allows Kolto Overload to be activated while stunned and causes Kolto Overload to purge most stun effects when activated. In addition, increases the range of Grapple and Shoulder Cannon by 10 meters and eliminates the heat generated by Electro Dart and Carbonize.

Operation Suggestion: Sonic Rebounder - Sonic Rebounder is incredibly powerful in group content - when you use your detaunt, everyone nearby except you will get a protective shield that bounces damage back at the enemy! This is a fan-favorite ability for the Powertech Style! Remember that if you took Boiling Point at 43, this will also heal allies and reduce your damage taken!

Solo Suggestion: Efficient Suit - Choose Efficient Suit to let you use Kolto Overload when you are stunned, and make your Shoulder Cannon and Grapple reach farther!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Efficient Suit - Choose Efficient Suit to let you use Kolto Overload when you are stunned, and make your Shoulder Cannon and Grapple reach farther!

Jet ChargeOptional Leap 10-30m Level 27 Option 3/3

Jet to a distant target dealing kinetic damage, interrupting the target's current action and immobilizing the target for 2 seconds. Cannot be used against targets in cover. Using Jet Charge grants Battering Ram, resetting the cooldown of Jet Charge and increasing movement speed by 30% for 6 seconds. While Battering Ram is active, Jet Charge may be used once within 10 meters of the target and deals 50% additional damage but does not cause an additional interrupt, immobilize or charge. This effect cannot occur more than once every 15 seconds.

Jump to a faraway enemy.

General Suggestion: Taking Jet Charge and adding a leap to your Powertech makes you 100% more mobile and this one can be re-cast right away for additional damage! This also has an added benefit of not being a passive that relies on Grapple - which would generate high threat.

General Suggestion: Pyrotech is a damage over time-based damage discipline. A talent that gives you an additional damage over time effect is invaluable as it is what you specialize in already. Remember to press your glowing rail shot after every Incendiary Missile for 12 seconds of burn damage!

Reduces the cooldown of Quell by 2 seconds. Additionally, all area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Sonic Missile is activated.

General Suggestion: The reduced damage from area attacks makes this very useful for staying alive in any content with area-wide damage (which is almost all). Combined with a reduced interrupt cooldown, and this choice makes any fight with mechanics a little easier to survive! If you feel you don't need the damage reduction, Reflective Armor is a good option for some free damage.

General Suggestion: All three choices here are good, but Hydraulic Overrides should be your default to help make powertech feel a little more mobile. If extra survivability is needed, swap to Shield Cannon, and Electro Dart is a great 4 second stun if your enemies aren't immune to such effects.

Operation Suggestion: Sonic Rebounder is incredibly powerful in group content - when you use your detaunt, everyone nearby except you will get a protective shield that bounces damage back at the enemy! This is a fan-favorite ability for the Powertech Style! Remember that if you took Boiling Point at 43, this will also heal allies and reduce your damage taken!

LvL73
