Notes[edit]

  • Pulses 10 times.
  • Elemental Enchantment Elemental Enchantment does affect the cool down of this ability.
  • Combos for a total of 7 burning bolts.
  • Direct damage scales with the equipped (main-hand) weapon. Default damage in PvE for exotic Dagger or Scepter is 367, for Staff 404, without weapon 266.
  • The maximum number of targets is 5, although it is not listed on the tooltip.
  • The cast time of this skill is ~4.5s, although the tooltip says 4s.
  • While under the effect of Quickness, (due to the shorter cast time) it only pulses 4 times during the channel, resulting into a total of 9 pulses instead of the intended 10.
  • Though it's a Fire Field the duration of the fire field isn't affected by Persisting Flames.
