Related traits[edit]

Fire Fire


  • This skill shoots three radial flames in a small arc. It is possible for one enemy to be hit by all three flames.
  • Attack speed is 1 attack per 1.0 seconds
  • The projectile(s) from this skill keeps to the ground, meaning that it can be aimed only horizontally; its path vertically is always along the ground. It also means that targets cannot be hit if there is a gap or large elevation in the ground between the target and the caster (e.g. harpy jumping puzzle in Uncategorized Fractal).
