Related traits[edit]

Fire Fire


  • Creates a burning fissure at the target's location that inflicts Burning every second for six seconds.
  • Fissure appears directly in front of (not underneath) the caster if no target is selected, depending on the player's camera angle and terrain.
  • Has a lengthy animation of pulling the Fiery Greatsword out of the ground. However, this is unrelated to the functionality of Fiery Eruption, and the skill can safely be cancelled early by moving.
