Notes[edit]

  • The rollback's maximum range is roughly 650 units.
  • Hitting obstacle like wall won't cancel the skill.
  • Meteor Shower can be precast during Burning Retreat, starting to channel after the skill finishes.
  • The burning only applies to foes that aren't already burning.
  • There are 6 "lines" that are created by the entire Burning Retreat.
  • Fire fields will not generate if the character's position does not change significantly (for example, running against a wall).
