Has a 0.1% chance per rank of burning all logs of the same type from the inventory.
( 6 February 2017 Update)
Pyromaniac is an Invention perk that has a 0.1% chance per rank to burn all of the logs of the same type in your inventory at once when adding logs to a bonfire.
When the perk triggers, it prompts the message:
Your pyromaniac perk allows you to burn all your logs at once!
It can be useful to have some logs in a beast of burden, allowing you to keep your inventory topped up and ideally increasing the number of logs in your inventory when pyromaniac activates.
This perk does not work with
protean logs, and burning protean logs with tradeable logs in the inventory will also not work.

Suggested gizmos Edit
The combination of Pyromaniac 5 and
Rapid 2 is uncommon, but offers a greater total increase in experience rate than Pyromaniac 5. It is suggested to pair one of these gizmos with a second gizmo containing Tinker 3 in an augmented crystal tinderbox.
