— In-game description


  • Cannot be cancelled by attempting to use other weapon skills; only dropping the bundle, dodging, or pressing Esc work.
  • The fireballs keep to the ground, meaning that they can be aimed only horizontally, their path vertically is always along the ground. It also means that targets cannot be hit if there is a gap in the ground between the target and the caster (e.g. harpy jumping puzzle in Uncategorized Fractal).
  • The skill-fact damage does not include the power bonus of Fiery Greatsword.
