I finally ascended today, and I'm looking for a good PvP build. Seeing as right now I'm an Elementalist/Mesmer, I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on a pyromancer build.

Attributes, skills, secondary profession, etc.

Really, I try to stay away from the whole fire sceen. Firestorm is your big Aoe skill but you can see it coming and most skilled people just move to avoid it.

I agree with Xircon here. FS is only nice when the enemy is waithing at their guildlord (or priest). But fire has some other nice skills. I was planning to try something like this myself:
Class: Elementalist / Ranger
Attributes: (cost)
Energy Storage: 12 (97)
Fire Magic: 12 (97)
Total attribute points used: 194/200
Skills:
1) Aura of Restoration - (10,1/4,20) For 60 seconds, you are healed for 350% of the energy cost each time you cast a spell.
2) Fire Attunement - (10,2,60) For 55 seconds, you are attuned to fire. You gain 30% of the energy cost of the spell each time you use Fire Magic.
3) Conjure Flame - (10,1,60) Lose all enchantments. For 60 seconds, if you're wielding a fire weapon, your attacks strike for an additional 13 fire damage.
4) Ether Renewal (elite) - (10,1,30) For 10 seconds, each time you cast a spell, you gain 4 energy and 17 health for each enchantment on you. This is an elite skill.
5) Flare - (5,1,0) Flare flies towards target foe, striking for 40 fire damage if it hits.
6) Fireball - (15,2,10) Fireball flies toward target foe and explodes on impact, striking for 91 fire damage in an area.
7) Immolate - (10,1,5) Target foe is struck for 41 fire damage and is set on fire for 3 seconds.
8) Mark of Rodgort - (25,2,20) For 18 seconds, whenever target foe is struck for fire damage, that foe is set on fire for 3 seconds.

This build is designed to keep your target on fire until he dies, combined with a lot of enchantments, which give you healing. Ranger, because then you are not a monk or a mesmer. Note that when you spam Flare during Ether Renewal, you will gain 9 energy every time. (4*4-5)

Well, I can mold to most anything if I like the way it feels... Right now I'm set up like this..

E/Me

Fire magic, 12.

Energy Storage, 10.

Domination, 8.

Skills.

Fireball, Pheonix, Immolate, Meteor Shower (wonderful for taking priests and KotH.) Fire attunement, conjure flame, shatter enchantment, and rez signet.

Though I was going to replace rez signet with elemental attunement when I managed to get my hands on.

Though right now the entire setup revolves around immolate and a fire wand as my main damage for a single person... Immolate, get about 8 mana back when I cast it and can recast fairly fast.

Using a PvP character with a fire wand, 11-22 damage, chance to decrease recast times.. With a flame artifact with 20% chance to decrease cast time and recast time.
